So whats the difference between the two????
500 street legal DS, 501 off road only; 500 PDS rear suspension, 501 linkage rear suspension (Husaberg 501 PDS); 500 open chamber forks, 501 4CS closed chamber forks, 500 aluminum subframe, 501 composite subframe; 500 Maxxis DOT tires, 501 Dunlop off road tires; 500 Giant Brand wheels, 501 DID Brand wheels. I'm sure there are some other differences.
motor and trans the same??? Would like to ds a 501 ( add lights etc)...
Same basic engine and 6 speed wide ratio. I'm sure the 500EXC engine is a little more restricted, to be street legal. If you live in a State, that lets you add street equipment and register an off road bike... the FE501 should be an awesome dual sport.
no kicker on 501s. billet triples on 501s. slightly different air filter strap(500 better I think). 500 couple of kg lighter. clutches may be different(500 dds) im not sure if they the same this year? id go a berg/husky personally. brother just bought 14 500exc-easy to ride but heavy in tight going, bulk torque/power awesome fun on WFO tracks!!!
