Is there any special steps I should take before I start to tear into this motor I plan on doing a complete rebuild because of first gear being out.... I did take off clutch housing and have found chung's so I am almost 100 that it's the gears them self all other gears work great and someone already welded the basket parts... Thanks for any help offered

As Crash says, the SV motor isn't a straight drop-in. Plus it's detuned relative to the TL lump. Still a decent motor mind you but nothing to be gained by sticking it into a TL chassis. You'd be better off taking a stock SV, putting better suspension on it and fitting some hotter cams.

Of course Crash is a bit smug in this respect since he owns a TL/Ducati hybrid. Git. :)
