2003 FE501 rebuild

Hi all,

Almost two mounts ago I started with rebuild of my FE501.

Everything started with exchange of timing chain, upgrade to newer blade, upgrade of decompresor, sprague and starter clutch.

When I take engine out of I realize that it take me hour more to strip down complete bike, so I decide to paint it.

After removing rocker cover I saw that follower bearing, bushes on axle and tappets are damaged, detailed in this post: Cam follower bearing 2003

I own the bike for cca 60 hours, so after situation with rockers I decided to remove cilinder head to check what is with valves, cilinder, piston etc.
Put some gasoline in head, exhaust were leaking.
Pulled down everything, inlet valves were damaged, one inlet seat broken, exhaust can go, on guides can be felt small amount of play.
Decided to put all new stuff and make upgrade to DVSK, detailed in this post: FE501 top end refresment

Both brake pads, and disk were at the end, so decided to change them also, put Galfer from KTM.

Also put new sprockets and chain.

Enjoy in pictures.

Hi Tourist,

Unfortunately it's still in peaces.
Hopefully I think it will be done in next two weeks, I don't have too much free time to play with it.

From september to may/june.

Normally in september temperature drops around 20 C, during winter it's mostly above 0 C during day.

This summer was special, it was lot of rain and temperatures around 20-30C so it was all year season. Normally it's around 40C.

Sandblasted frame, stored in dry place , wife almost kicked me out together with frame



Two component epoxy primer, 3 layers.





Waterborne paint and anti scratch lacquer
Paint is Subaru "Adriatic blue effect" code Z7B, looks very nice.







Yellow hubs and other details.
I was thinking to go with RAL 1016 for yellow, but car refinish workshop where I buy paints have paint scanner, so he scanned front fender (newest yellow part on my bike) and mixed exactly the same paint.

Thanks from bushmechanic and plumbbob
