Keeping a 2001 FE650E Running

Basically, do we still have enough parts available to keep one of these bad boys together and functional?
I know this is probably the absolute worst year for these bikes but I'm eyeballing one for possible purchase. Looks to be in pretty nice shape from the pics. Specifically, I need to know if the engine parts are still available.

Sorry I was lazy this time and haven't done a search. Was hoping you gurus could chime in--or anyone for that matter.

As always any information is greatly appreciated.

Thanks guys!

Bruce

Im no guru but all the known upgrades for the 01-03 models are for a reason. Premature wear and failures.
If I was to own an 01 it would be because I was willing to go through if not all, most of the upgrades.

Yeah, that's what my plan would have been but it's a moot point now as the bike sold earlier today.
It was California street plated too.
