501 Auto-decomp Mechanism

Hello,

I am looking for the complete auto-decomp mechanism for the head of my 91 501. I also need the cable from kick starter to head.

Anyone have one or know what other models mechanism would fit?

Thanks

Hi Jason,
Well busy with the "finishing touch" on your MSR Husaberg?
Did you have already contact with Malcolm Smith Racing?
And did you succeed with the graphics?

Grtz Rens

p.s.i am very curios how it looks now.

Hey Rens,

I am in the process of buying/installing an FCR 40 from 06 CRF250R to the 501. Hopefully it will help with cold starting, add power and throttle response.

Spoke to Alexander Smith son of MS, AS said he had no way to get me any pics, info, anything. He suggested old Husky dealer could help???

No MS graphics............ I could make up my own MS tribute graphics. Have a sticker of one of his emblems for reference.

Bike looks about the same but cleaner. Couple new visible parts. I ordered the only known graphics kit available. It is a blue and gray Mister Max kit. Going to Keep them in reserve if I can't find correct MSR graphics.

Hi Jason,
I am very curios what the stickerset looks like, so if you could post a picture of it that would be nice.
The mod of your bike is it a Keihin carb?
As for my FE 501, i made templates of the original stickers they used back in '89, and still in search for a company who can help me out.

Grtz Rens

p.s. maybe Taffy can help you with the auto decompression mechanism?

Here is the graphics kit I bought from BOSS. Yes it is curling. Glue still sticky and clean. I will use as templets if I do MSR tribute graphics. I don't think the 501 stickers go with shroud graphics. Oh well.

Hi Jason,
This stickerset looks a lot like those of a '92 model.
But hey, don't despair i am still looking in my archive, if i can find anything about the MSR edition.
The only thing is that my archive is a bit extensive, so if you have a bit patience maybe we get lucky

Grtz Rens

The auto-decomp assembly would essentially be a weight and spring which are available new or from Taffmeisters. You will probably want to use the 04-08 version. Or are you thinking about something else?
