If noone answers you, you can head over to bannedcr500riders.com or the regular one. They're entire forums dedicated to them, and I'm sure someone there will know.

You probably can, with a little help from some friends. I use a decomp unit from a small 2 stroke, chainsaw, disc cutter type thing. They are normally an m10x1 thread. I had a local machine shop make a sleeve, with an m10x1 female thread in it. I used a 2.5mm drill bit, and drilled horizontally between the water jacket and a stud hole into the combustion chamber. I had the sleeve welded to the head, screwed the decomp unit in, bolted it in to the bike, and fired the sucker up. Cost me about £20.
