2001 501 FE cush hub and tire size

New to this forum. Just purchased a 2001 501 FE that I would like to use as a dual sport. I have been told I need a cush hub to absorb shock and prevent damage to the front sprocket drive shaft. The question is where do I source this part? I would like to fit TCK80 "twinsport" tires as well but need to know the maximum size allowable for proper fitment on the rear 18" wheel as well as the size for the 21" front wheel. Also looking to source the 2.8 gallon tank.

there is a 90/100 x 21" front out there in a starccross 5. superb tyre. not sure what it will do to the handling but try it or any of the 90/100s that are now around.

on the rear, all you need is the original can take it. the gearbox on the husaberg is VERY strong.

I have 6 off x 2.5" x 21" front rims if you need one. on the rear a 2.5 x 18" is the obvious choice over the 2.15 yours came with.

but none of these are really necassary.

your thinking too much....
