Yup, I did! Here's a shot of the 640!
This is my team at the finish....
I'm the slower guy on the far right. What a great event, we had a ton of fun!

My 04 FE650. 649cc of pure fun.
I miss her alot.
In 08 I rode her from Los Alamos NM to Lake City CO for west fest. then I rode it all over the area for the next three days. After which I rode it back home.
4 am In the Jemez Mts waiting for my riding buddy.
Headed north along the CD trail.
Some of the places that my berg would take me.
On the trail north of Durange CO. This trail had a huge penalty for failure to stay on the trail.
Me and my best friend ever.
The perfect tool for a caveman.
This bike had both a heart and a sole.
Thanks for this thread!
It only reminds me that I'm still looking to buy a new-in-the-crate, last model year, 650.
Anyone know if one even exists?
You're welcome. Glad you appreciate it.
Good luck with your search for the ultimate 650!
Hair- Nice! How many miles was that in total?
Huskyfatman- How many hours/miles on your 650? Have you had the engine apart?

Here is my '06 550
It now has a 4 gallon tank on it. I love this bike...except I just destroyed a new waterpump seal during installation, so it has to sit for a week waiting on new parts
Nice bike Wallache.
I love the way the '01-'08 bikes look. I like the overall design and they just have a purposeful stance.
They ride even better than they look .
Mine is currently sitting at 105 hours and 2100 miles. Only work has been oil changes and valve checks. The waterpump seal was mostly an excuse to pull the clutch cover and have a look around.
Don't laugh but I only have a little over 40hrs on it, just checked the valves a few times and change the oil often. I ride three of my five bikes a lot more than the Berg, even though it's the most fun to go fast off road on.
I ride with my GF mostly these days and the 650 is overkill for that. The KDX does great and is low maintence, and my ATK is better on the street and is also low maintence. The Berg puts the biggest smile on my face though, and it makes you ride wheelies on the street!
o contraire mr 'zilla. the decomp does not work when the exhaust valves are loose. generally, the intakes will tighten up as the valve wear / cup, and the exhausts usually will loosen. ("you should have known")
Hey Old Man, how ya been
I agree that the decomp dont work when the Ex are loose but I never saw them loosten up and it is always hard to start when the intake are tight. any way they need to be set properly before you start down all the other roads that lead to hard starting the berg
here is my 02 501--eng has never been apart, and org clutch with a rekluse. hrs? don't know, had 70 mi on it in oct of 04 when i bought it--has a sparks stator and fcr carb and starts on the button hot or cold. i see you have a tt600 as i just rebuilt one.
Hi bergman! It's me, zrxer from TT. Glad to see you here!
THAT my friend is THE fastest bike out of a corner bar none. I had a 2001 with 4k miles before it grenaded
I passed some guys in a wash one time and at the next check they were asking "What kind of Suzuki is that can pull a KX500?"
dang Tim....I wish you were selling it now.
I'm replacing the 525, and have been looking at TE610's mostly, but the 'berg FE550E and FE650 have my attention now.
Hey Bob, thanks for the Jetting specs. I bought a JD jet kit, so I followed the instructions and got it running tonight. I replaced the battery with one of those new 123 lithium batteries and I drained it pretty quick trying to get it started before I jetted it (month ago). I need to buy a low amperage battery charger to get the new battery back up to snuff. I had to hit the start button and kick to get it fired up but it did run. Since it was in the living room, I decided to shut it off though
Seems to be a starter cranking speed issue due to a undercharged battery, unless the starter is junk but I thought I read that the new starters are good?
Anyway, that is one sweet 501, I really want one to tinker on someday!
