I have loads of videos that will help on my facebook page. things like getting the kickstart assembly back in, fitting the later auto decomp and my modified spring, ignition timing.

if you insuist on doing anything without it running....wrong move altogether BTW, then please just remove the head and the left cover. it's not a bath but it is a bed bath and therefore nearly as good and not a frcation of the hassle.

loosen and remove, oil and replace the long bolt across the front of the engine and also the SA pivot pin.

cheers

Thanks Taffy, I'm glad I landed on this forum, some good people who don't mind offering a bit of help.
I always end up with oddball bikes, cars etc...lol.
So if I do all the listed-recommended mods mods, will I end up with a reliable machine?
Cheers.

well no, reliabile is in a complete rebuild with everything measured and perhaps changed but you are lookijng at it arse about face.

it is low mileage, the bottom end has certainly got a good while left in it. you need to work around the outside of it. that is why i give you the bed bath analogy.

get it starting and running sweetly. you'll spend plenty of money just getting that done right and sweet.

work on taking the head off if you like and putting in DVSK, getting the ADC working, check for wear. get all the stuff eric wrote above done and then put the left cover and head back on and start it up.

Okay Taffy will do, I've been on your site, and will place an order for some goodies shortly.
Seems you have everything I will need to accomplish stage one! Excellent!
I've noticed the cables supplying volts to the starter are a little lean gauge wise, so they will be replaced, R1 04 starter motor looks like it will go in?
I'll make a list of jobs and post it up for your opinion in the next few weeks.
Thanks to everyone who has imputed. Cheers.

you need a starter motor bracket on top of the Husaberg bracket if you're going that route. so remember that our price for the beefy includes the bracket which we value at 15.

best thing you can do is to get the special choke cable and then talk to me about my bergbooster jetting kit?

I have specifically got this going spot on on my FE501e 2003. so I'm looking to get this de-snagged with customers first. then i'll spread it to other CCs etc.

that might be worth an email to me. david@taffmeisters.co.uk

I found a busted electric start motor in my box of free stuff along with half the stuff HusaButt mentioned. Hoping the guy before did all this. if convert to kickstart only, loose battery, run lights off mag (keep street legal plates),,,,, im feeling good. However couldnt emagine kicking it over not knowing if it would ever start. Thanks HusaButt, i bet you know my 650 or old owner.

kickstart only Flashbugger? that would be a shame! stick with it, as eric says the info is there but you won't just stick a starter on it and have it all go right.

many a man before you has tried all this. a starter motor can try and turn the engine but it kills the battery straining against the decomp and if you boost the battery then the starter gears have to slip until you do the decomp.

I wasnt recommending convert to kickstart only, just stating that it was done to mine along with most the mods you guys are talking about and the thing starts 1st 2nd kick. Thats it,
