I Ride: 08' FE 450 Husaberg
Opinions wanted

So Im trying to dig up a rod, piston & liner for my 03'650.
In the mean time Im enjoying my FE 450 thats been debored to a 390.
Im in a situation where an 02' 501 is available to me for cheap. Its a strong rebuilt engine w/rekluse clutch on a clean bike that is not being ridden.
$650 cash , Cally title.

So on the quest for cubic inches, this could be a step till I find the rest of my 650 parts reasonably ?

Any input appreciated !---Proflow

if you ride it offroad, you might forget the 650

Im thinking of simply dropping that 501 into my 450 chassy & ride the snot outa it ! I can have the extra 650 head worked over w/bigger valves, ported, better springs & put it on right ? Its an 02' my 650 is an 06'. So dunno.

This 501 recently got a new cam chain, updated tensioner, cam & berrings.
It has WP worked over suspension , excel wheels etc... Ready to ride.
Local to me also Sunday is the day Im stoked !
Only downer is the older ignition that I know of.
Not sure of other downfalls...

Still looking for 650 internals though !

Proflow, you must be the guy I emailed the other day about a 600 engine in Phoenix that would bolt right up to your '06 chassis.

Here's another thought - I had a custom Carillo rebuildable rod made for one of my engines and it ran me $375. I'm sure they can do something similar for your 650. I believe Wossner has new pistons for about $300. So, for the purchase price of that 501, you could be most of the way to having your 650 running. Then, I'll bet that someone like LA Sleeve can make a new liner.

Just something to think about.
Thanks from bushmechanic, tourist and proflow
