Re: project!! rebuild tips please...

Chech tne vin number on the headstock, or your ownership papers. There should be an FE,FX,FS, or FC in it. I'm bettering it's an FX ( cross country). There is lots of info in the owners docs for you. I sorted out a 2001 FX650 a couple winters ago. I still love the bike. 01's seem to need lots of upgrades but they are still worth the effort. Taffy will be a good source of parts/info. I find the bike easy and enjoyable to work on. Even more fun to ride!
BTW, welcome and enjoy the bike.

Re: project!! rebuild tips please...

Hi

Your bike is probably one FX or FC, because I don't think that ever existed one FE470.

I have rebuild one FX470-01 for a friend 2 years ago, and I've tried to make it one FE470, because the bike as it comes can be hard do drive for someone with less experience.

So I've changed the cam to a 01 (from the FE) and changed the piston to the one from the 650, witch is a flat one (the one in the 470 is a HC one). The 470 is basically one 650 piston with one 400 rod.

Still all that done the bike is very fast for off road and incredible fun !!

One last thing, pay attention to the cam timing and to the bearings on that bike.

Re: project!! rebuild tips please...

Soooooo. Does that mean I could turn my 650 into a 470 by changing the rod to a 400?

Hi

The yellows and the blue are for lights and/or battery if you have one. So if you don't have lights or batt you don't need them.

The others, black (ground), green (timing), red (coil), orange (kill), white (if it's one FC you don't have), all goes to CDI.
