Service Repair Manual 2000 FE600E

I recently picked up a neglected 2000 600 FE that of course needs engine work. A fellow had it listed on here back around spring/summertime of this year.

I am in the process of disassembling the engine, and so far, things look promising. Crank rolls smoothly, and no play in con rod big bearing.

A couple things. This bike seems to be rarer than usual, kind of a split model year? I donít see much information or parts listed for it. I would like to get a service manual, but donít see one through the usual routes. I let a 99 manual slip through my fingers on fleabay recently, but still see a couple for Ď98 bikes. Will the information included apply to my engine? The biggest difference I notice is my engine has a hydraulic clutch. Previous model year 600ís have a conventional cable actuated clutch?

Second, anyone have miscellaneous parts they may want to part with? The kickstart stop is worn down and had everything jammed up. I think thatís the only thing that saved this poor bike from being completely wrecked. I see a bunch of fine steel in the oil filter cavity (attracted to a magnet) so luckily didnít go through the engine. However it may have starved it for oil, as the oil pump gears have severely deep pitting. Is it correct that the cylinder doesnít have a base gasket? This one just had a thin layer of RTV sealant in between the case and cylinder.

To wrap up, my short list of needed parts are, oil pump, kickstart mechanism steel stop, flywheel, starter, starter intermediate gear, and new piston and gasket set. I will send the piston and cylinder out for replating. The rest of the bike is pretty much complete, although beat up. Iíd like to get it in running condition before addressing the cosmetic issues.

Thanks for any and all information you fellows might be able to share.

PS, I also have an Ď01 650E basket case I need a lot of chassis parts for as well. But, thatís a whole different post!

the 2000 is the first year of the new chassis that went through to 2003 including. 2001 was as you know, the first year of the then 'new' engine. so yours is a one year hybrid and be proud of it as it is a fine motorcycle.

1997 had a different ignition
1998 same ignition and so other than the chassis is virtually the same as yours bar that hydraulic clutch.
1999 didn't have any engine changes i can think of.

when rebuilding the engine, always try and upgrade and improve at the same time. luckily, you can't buy the old shit anyway - well mostly!

I've got all the parts you'll need. pistons, little end bushes, gasket sets. all on the web shop but do ask any questions. it is important to upgrade as well as refresh. for instance the kickstart ssledge plate should be renewed from me and it will be already modified.

email me and I'll send you a workshop manual....and parts book as well if you haven't got one.
