STOCK VS MOD­I­FIED

Performance Bikes (UK) - - THE MOD SQUAD -

BORED OUT, PEPPED UP

PB’s Pound­stretcher project bike of 2002 proves what’s pos­si­ble with en­gine work. The stock SV650 mo­tor was bored out to 700cc by JHS Rac­ing, and treated to an M4 full sys­tem, hot cams, af­ter­mar­ket air fil­ter and light flow­ing to the heads. The re­sult was just over 13bhp ex­tra peak power, and a very handy 3.5lb.ft hike in torque. The bill was still south of £2000, and pro­pelled the hum­ble 650 into 748-bash­ing ter­ri­tory.
