Here is the link to the online FSM: http://www.scribd.com/fullscreen/7530846

You do need two special wrenches to drop the engine. You can do your wrench with a 27 socket and a dremmel.

Also, one of these would help:

i dont get why the special tool is machined that way, a 27 socket wont do the same thing? or is it in the way it connects to the bolt? (Why are there two pieces?)

Your bike rides just fine. It needs nothing in the motor department. Bored and stroked = broken con rods and fried cranks on that SV. You'd be a lot happier with a fresh paint job or maybe a set of GSXR plastics for street cred. I rode it at MSRH and it still purrs like a kitten. Save your money for something you really want...like a crf150f lol.

I really think you are underestimating the effort, and over estimating the results, of pulling your bike apart and "rebuilding" it. You just need to sort your electrical issue, check valve clearance, check your CCTensioners, put in a fresh filter, synch your EFI throttle bodies, change your oil, go up one weight in fork oil, bolt in a GSXR rear shock, and paint that beast. $500 should have you covered for a sweet street ride.

Plus, if you wrench on it, everything you touch will need to be touched by someone with experience in the near future as bolts are overtightened or the bike falls apart, haha.

Every motohead should rebuild an engine at least once in his/her lifetime, whether it's needed or not.

I rebuilt an '86 XJ700 motor with 2nd overbored pistons and rings. Went from 696 to707cc. Took the DOHC head completely apart to blast all the valves clean of carbon and installed new valve guides. Spent wayyy too much time on the job and prolly could've bought a brand new bike if I had just gone flip burgers instead.

Still... that fine Friday night when I torque-wrench clicked on that last bolt, then sinked my thumb into that starter button for the very first time... VROOOMMM. Sweetest music these ears have yet heard, possibly ever.

I've ridden many more bikes since then, but not one has been more memorable than that one that bore my blood, sweat and elbow grease.

You might be able to get away with using a brass punch vs the castle nut socket. I've done it before.

I need to figure out if my faulty plug goes to the ignition switch or the cluster. It is a green 4 prong plug. Only one that color so you SV heads might be able to help.
