Does anyone know anything about the former AFM 2000 SV650?

Just picked this up from a guy name Mike Han. Said he bought it from AFM'er.
Had number 944 on it. Mike said it was built by KC@BRG.

It's been sitting for several years. Lots to go through. Fortunately it was left with race gas in the tank so the tank looks perfect, no rust or anything funky.

If anyone knows anything about this bike I'd love to hear.
I'm hoping to get it back on the road in time for May 3 track day at Sonoma.

Cheers,
-John

Nice! I don’t know anything about that particular bike, but I have one similar to that. Hope to see you at Sonoma!

I’m very familiar with the bike and I keep some parts on hand, let me know if you need anything. I’m in San Anselmo

Thanks Peter, appreciate that! I'm in San Rafael.
It needs a new front master at least. The fuel lines are toast. Will probably pop out the caliper pistons and see how they look.
Throttle is stiff but the carbs operate smoothly.

It has an external battery box with a starter button and a connector that - I think goes straight to the starter.
And it has a small battery that runs the bike.
I'm wondering if this is a total-loss system, guess I'll have to pull the stator cover and take a look.

You should take carbs apart, clean everything and replace o-rings. They are notorious for leaking after sitting long time.
Cable is one in to two and stiffer than normal throttles. Lube everything on regular bases, throttle housing, cables, inside cable junction....etc.
Regulator/rectifier is still on bike and plugged so charging appear to be there.

Will never be soft like normal bikes due to set up but you can make it easier with constant lube.
Motion pro revolver is little better than stock housing.
Also we all run without return cable which helps some.
