    Fe 501S SUMO Life?

    Looking at the possibility of pickiing up a 2017 fe 501s (heard they have it all over the 15/16 model) ​Id like to have 1 set of rims and tyres for trail riding and enduro, and another set SUMO. What I want to know is, how do people think this bike will hack SUMO life? My trail rides etc. can be fortnightly to monthly, so in between id love to use it (probably nearly daily) as a street toy. My concern is, if I was to use regularly as SUMO, what kind of maintenance am I looking at? 1000km oil and filter? how many k's am I going to get like this before I will need to rebuild etc etc, and then what kind of $$ am I looking at? ​Excuse my lack of knowledge here, I was on road bikes for years then got on a DRZ400....so the higher strung out engines is something I've never really had a lot to do with. I am proactive with servicing etc. in general though.

    This bike was beautiful, modified, fast, loud, but really needed to be convinced to take corners.

    I loved this bike. I have ridden/Driven one of nearly everything. And this sits right up there. Was sad letting it go to jump onto dirt bikes.

    DRZ 400e - Big Bore Stories

    My bike - 2007 DRZ 400e. ​I'm looking at the possibility of installing an Athena 440 big bore or possibly Cylinder works. I wont skimp on a cheap kit if I get it done. Please friends, do not take offence to how direct this post may seem!! If you have NOT had it done to your bike, or personally worked on the bike, or been around a bike that has (a lot), then please don't post your opinion on the topic. I've read about potential problems etc. etc.. I'm aware that if you try squeeze more power out of anything, the possibility of issues is always going to be there. ​What I would love to read, is from people who have first hand experience with these big bore kits in there DRZ 400e...Straight from the horses mouth so to speak...If you've done it (and the longer ago the better) Have you had issues? Were you happy with the outcome & power output. Did you run it with other mods (probably). If you've done it, please share your experience, the good, the bad, the ugly. Cheers, Luke ​
