I think the v-strom engine is more closely related to the SV1000 engine.

I always thought the SV engine was an evolution of the TL engine?

:stupid

They made some changes, internal and external, but it's basically the same engine, appearance, bore, stroke, primary ratio, camdrive, etc etc (They did change the rear engine mount locations in the cases).

SV owners can't buy clear covers, pressure plates or spring retainers though!! (if that is what Van is getting at!!)
unless the side cover from a TL motor is a straight swap for an SV one :dunno

Nope it doesn't, one of the bolt holes is in a different position. I thought about it for racing but I asked the question in a thread Clicky.

GP posted some pictures of the different gaskets etc
