budget sv650 cafe racer
« on: Sep 23, 2018, 02:36:42 »
Dispite being a budget build I am keen to make this a great bike to ride and to look at.
Already fixed the road worthy bits, and today trial fitted the clip ons and mirror, thinking of keeping the old risers to mount my G Tech RR for performance testing

That's neat, are the 2nd generation intakes shorter, or bigger in diameter?

The rear sets are on and adjusted to suit the standard seat at this time. I am waiting on a bango switch for the rear brakes. the kit came with parts to adapt the original mechanical switch, but I must be a bit dumb, I could not see how it would work so i'm just going with the Hydraulic switch.
I am still waiting on my dba meter (should be here soon) for muffler tests and I have ordered a harley drop in lowering kit Which I hope will supply parts for some more mad scientist suspension experiments. still can't afford my adjustable rear shoch and spring but it will happen.
The idicators clear the bars now. I have just bent them to the same angle as the bars.

There are lots of sound level apps for "smart"phones. Don't know how well they work or how accurate they are. I even have one on my Windows phone.

I tried 2 sound meter apps on my android phone both gave very different results. it didn't show much difference idle to 6000rpm. We will see what a dedicated meter shows.

Cool. Was it originally a naked or an S? The S came with rearsets I think...just wondering if new sets are greatly different to standard on the S. Great bikes BTW.
Run out of zip ties? Dental floss is an excellent alternative.

It was a naked, and I think the S rearsets are about an inch back and up. these ones are about 3 inches back and 11/2 up approx. I just held the old ones up next to them and eye balled it.
