hard to start could mean a lot of things. start reading the poor starting section of the owner's doc on the home page.
keep in mind it is a 15 yr old race bike with a problematic ignition system.
where are you located?

Or it could be an easy fix, that motor doesn't have shims, it has the screw adjusters.

Re: Newbie need fe501 advice please

it is best you know that you'll need to be a handy mechanic to get these bikes running right when they get to this age.

if it is one of a few in a backyard in sheffield don't touch it.

they are a beautiful bike but need a lot of work. put it this way: if he says he's spent a grand then you'll get awy with 500. if he hasn't spent a penny then the sheyit is pulling up at the door and you'll be given a bucket....

regards
