Hey folks, just had a thought. Seems to be nothing in the forums, but wondering if anyone has successfully switched out the SV barrels for the larger capacity VSTROM barrels?

Yes. Many times now I have built engines with the 14 and up DL1000 cylinders.

What overall benefits have you noted from that...HP...Torque....?
And what mods do you need to do to make it happen ...assuming v-strom heads added as well ?

I use a milled down SV head with stock 100mm DL pistons or a 100mm JE piston.

Just like milling the head and setting deck height on a stock bore motor, this gets you midrange punch!
