Late 90s FE600 questions

Howdy all, I'm looking at a FE600, have looked through the "Docs" section, but am not finding a good FAQs area for these bikes of the late 90s; 96-99. Any direction would be apprectiated. TIA...

Re: Late 90s FE600 questions

What specific questions do you have?
I can only say that at this point they are project bikes. Something challenging to tinker with. Being your #1 bike is probably not in the equasion. A little used dualsport bike....perhaps.
I would love to find a 2000 FE600 for what limited dualsporting I do.

Re: Late 90s FE600 questions

needs a little tlc, new front rim is a must, the frame has a crack, you could probably talk the guy down to 1300
http://reno.craigslist.org/mcy/1635181329.html, i want to buy it, but would rather wait a few more months and buy something brand new

Re: Late 90s FE600 questions

Well, some basic questions like; is there a model year break point to purchase beyond? IE, should I skip the '9X models because the '9x was the improved cooling/suspension/engine configurations...Was there a particularly bad year which should be avoided at all costs? Is there certain maintenance which SHOULD be in shop receipts/ records, for certain mileage machienery?

Being that these bikes are relatively rare I have little perspective on what a decent price is, as well...

Got some real passion here, this is a great Forum, Thanks to the organizers of it all!!

98-00 would not be to bad. The 2000 was the last year of the old motor and first year for the new frame. Some consider the 2000 the best of both worlds.
