2002 FE501 engine will fit into a 1994 FE501

A quick question, does anyone know if a 2002 FE501 engine will fit into a 1994 FE501 frame?

Thanks a bunch

I would seriously doubt it. Of course you can make most anything fit it just depends on how much effort you are willing to invest in the project.

Has the FE501 2002 got a completely different frame from 1994 FE501?

has your bike got a straight tube all the way down to the bottom of the cradle from the head stock or does it split into two then join the cradle, if it splits then there is a good chance it will fit.....ian

Yes. The frame was redesigned in 2000. The most noteable change was the subframe is welded to the frame whereas before it was a bolt on.

From 2001 on all the frames are similar. In 2001 the new engine was introduced which could now use the same frame for both e-start and kick start models. Prior to 2001 the e-start model needed a larger engine cradle because the starter was placed in the front of the motor adding extra length.

The 2000 model was the only year that used the new frame with the old motor.

Sorry to say scrap, but the above comment, shows you are utterly non-qualified to make posts in this thread. If you don't know something, please don't pretend that you do. ricco and others don't need to be led down the wrong path.

Just so you know, Husaberg has never made a "right kicker" motor.

p.s. no worries, we get other guys who are experts in their own mind. One of them is from France.
