SV650 Rear Cylinder

Hi folks,

I've been contemplating on fixing my original motor's rear cylinder from my SV650s. What's going on with it is that the rear cylinder is spiting oil and I'm trying to figure out is could it be a top end or bottom end issue. The dang thing guzzled the oil out itself to starvation that it started to smoke a bit. With the oil refilled, the motor still starts and runs like normal before I replaced it. So I'm thinking I could maybe I fix it as a project and use it as a track motor(?). I always have a knack for experimenting on stuff that's not too complicated and from the looks of it, it doesn't look that hard work on.
So my question is, can this be fixed and operate reliably...(ish)? or just sell it as a part out. (front cyl. is still good).

Any advise or ideas is much appreciated.

Oh, the motor has about 41.3k miles on it.

Thanks!

If it has a tendency to spit out oil please keep it off the track. Other than that I have no help for you. What year Motor is it?

From what I've been told the 04 had some issues with crank failure. With that many miles it could most likely use a full rebuild to be a good track motor.

Wow, no way! Well, a full rebuild will be a tall order for me due to schedule concerns. But we'll see.

Thanks for your input Ek.

Yeah, don't take that to the track. Find lower mileage motor and replace it. There should be plenty out there.

Hey, that's my old-old race bike behind you in the pic (not me though). Changed hands about 4 times since I owned it back in the day.

Already did so about 3 months ago. I thought I could explore different options on what can I do with it since its been sitting in my storage space for a while.

Oh cool! I've always been a big fan of the old school GSXR's. The 02'-03's models are my favorites.
