'06 GT650r in Texas
« on: May 26, 2015, 02:07:09 AM »

Hello all.   Bought a project 06 GT650r.  She didnt get the love she deserved so I'll be giving her a make over.

First off.  Does anyone know if the swingarm on a GV650 is the same as the 650's?   I just noticed a good dent on the left side and I can get an 07 gv650 for dirt cheap.  Plus if tye forks, rotors, calipers, cdi and eletronics  interchange, then more money saved than buying piece by piece on ebay.

Not the same.

The GV runs a fatter back tyre. The rim is wider and the spacers are different.

The questions is, is the width at the chassis end the same and are the two interchangeable?

I can't answer you this. What I do know is that at the very least, you would need to convert the rear hub to chain drive, or convert the front sprocket to belt drive (which would be way cooler!).

I found some pics if both.  I see the difference now.

Im irritated at myself for not seeing the dent in the swingarm.  Found a one on ebay for a good price.  So now I need front turn signals, chain & sprocket, ignition/tank lock combo, chain guard, and front brake master cylinder.   Then fix up the plastics.  Luckily no holes in them.

Of course the main thing is filing for a bonded title..

All right.  Swingarm and mirrors on the way.

Got the swingarm in a lot quicker than I thought I would so why not start the fixing journey.











Forgot to get silver paint so itll stay black.  If I keep it, I'll paint the frame to match.

The new swingarm made a big difference.  The rear wheel actually leans with the bike now instead of being staright up when tye bike is on the kickstand.

Now just waiting on the other parts.

Hey.  The tire follows the body now.
