Awesome project!

Personally, the multi-cylinder sumos kind of take away from the simplicity and beauty of it all, but I'm always impressed with a good project!

Definitely going to follow this one

i think around 50 pounds more. but it will end up being a little more as i will have 2 throttle bodies and dual exhaust.

wow i have a sv. they weigh around 425 wet and make about 70 hp at the wheel. so this should end up around 75 lbs less.

are you going to put a bigger wheel/tire on it? SV has a 160/60

sv cranks like to snap when they are highly tuned. slipper clutches are suppose to help this.

SVrider.com is a good forum if u need any info

it should end up being around 275-300 lbs ready to ride. i will do a final weight when its done. the engine will be plenty reliable with 85 hp. the motors capable of a lot more but then as you said when you get into the 105 hp area you have to worry about reliability. for the time being until this project is done shes going to be stock

I'm going to do the same thing with an xr650r engine this winter. Are you going to reweld the cradle back in or secure brackets to the engine and have it act as the cradle? Great build. Looking forward to see how it goes for you.

going to build the frame similar to aprilia frame. the engine will be a stress point of the frame. getting some metal this weekend to start mocking up the frame work should have her welded out in a few weeks. pics to follow

I agree with ApTard...

Sounds like a fun project though.
