1st why? Are you running in the top 3 of every race you enter?

If you want you can but on such a small bike I doubt your lap time will improve just from doing this.

You will need a strong battery like a Lithium Ion to run it and since it is light weight that will help. You will need to be able to charge your battery inbetween sessions. Maybe even have 2 batteries with quick disconnect. Just remove everything that is part of your charging system. Stator, regulator and wiring. As for your flywheel you can remove the magnet part and maybe have the flywheel machined to make it light which will help the motor rev faster.

Make sure you have a manual and write down everything you remove incase you do something that will not let the bike start.

Background is important here. Dodge is a mechanic and a former fizzer 400 racer.


13 KTM 200 XC-W
15 KTM 350 XC-F

I might have a dirt bike problem.

Why? I'm just a track day rider so having a charging system and starter would be the smart way to be. I'm curious how many vintage racers have gone this route, what result it produces. I've met Dodge corner working and we've talked wrenching - no doubt he knows his shit. Thanks guys for entertaining this conversation

Not a good idea. You're not getting any reward. There are other ways to lose weight without the considerable hassle this will cause.


SV650s for SALE!!!
- 2007 SV650 Racebike-Superbike KWS/Thermosman suspension/Swenz bodywork/All GSXR Parts
- 2009 SV650 Streetbike Race blue with white stripe/No wrecks/fully faired with M4 full system

Shoot me a PM or talk to Nate (Nudist) if you're interested in purchase.
