I was looking at some old pictures and rand across this....
put a dr650 motor in a 250 frame. this was very close to a bolt in swap for the motor.
all I had to do was bore bolt holes one side of the motor mounts. that was about it. I think I had to just add brackets on the top mount to get the tilt of the motor right. the chain was in line perfectly.
Wiring all the wiring color codes were the same the problem was from the  switches Suzuki had female connectors and male on the harness side. Well Hyo does the opposite.  so a little quick thinking and took the old hyo harness and made mini harness to go between the switch and dr harness.
I didn't end up having to cut spacers....between the motor and mounts in the front.

Notice how the front mounting bolts fall in line... :)

first stages of the brackets for rear mounts.

Bennetts Bike Social forum (my insurers) has a test of the new Suzuki SV650, alongside the raved about Yamaha MT07, and this led me to a few other video reviews - all rate the Suzuki as highly as the Yamaha with the Suzuki having a hard seat and dated brakes, and the Yamaha having a hard seat and cheap/softer suspension.  The choice seems to come down to personal preference - the more modern looking, but slightly frantic Yam or the more restrained, but slightly roomier Suzi.

The Suzuki would probably be my preference (I know, at the start of this subject I slagged it off!!), and 2 things occur to me -

1. It's nice to have another affordable v-twin available, and from a mainstream manufacturer..... (I never really like the previous Gladius design)
2. Given the similar family tree, there is no reason why Hyosung couldn't (lightly) facelift the GT650, make a few minor improvements (wiring, rect/reg, brakes) and tighten up on quality control to get in there with the big boys.....

They will have to do something to comply with Euro4 regs before 2017 anyway (assuming they want to stay in UK/Europe), so is it the perfect time for a new GT650?? :D

Tell me more about the radiator mount tabs, is there a thread?

The issue is that the company itself gives bad customer support to the dealers, it also doesn't care much once the bike gets sold. However, I don't know if that changed after the KR motors thing happened, so don't let me put you off.

Looking better already!

What's your plan on paintwork.....I like the GV in that orange (used to have a Triumph 500 which I sprayed that colour!), but maybe you have other plans..... ::o

Well.... so far so good. I'm NOT sure what did it but here is what changed.
Like I said above.. pulled the carbs of to run on a GV 650 while I was cleaning the GV carbs.
I put the GV carbs on then I couldn't get it to start at all....Nothing. I'm sure what made me swap the CDI but I did and it idles just fine for 15 min. and no red glow. :)

I'm pretty happy with my weekend. With in a from Wed-Sunday I fixed three bikes and sold two. That make the exhaustion worth it. lol well the money does actually.
