Hi ggimp,

if I remember correctly, the bleeding bolt in the cylinder head was introduced with the 2004 engines. Prior engines don't have it.

Here on the forum you'll find the husaberg manuals - I don't have the link right now, but I can send you the 2002 docs! There must be a google drive link somewhere with all the docs!!!

Regards,
EDE

Thanks

Ok.

I guess I just fill it up and watch the temperature then. I was adjusting the carb and I guess I had the bike standing still for to long. Maybe the problem with overheating in this case is just because I was to slow (had a few beers...)
Shouldn't the cap release some pressure in that case?

According to the Husaberg Owners Manual 2004, page 23:

"NOTE: Dedicated to nothing but offroad racing, Husaberg models make no compromises in their design. As such, they do not include any radiator fan, and the size of the radiator is dimensioned for optimum ergonomics. In normal racing, the cooling system is sufficient. If you use your motorbike in other conditions, please note that: the E-starter allows you to start FC/FS models again at any time. Therefore, turn off the engine if you intend to run your motorcycle in idle or at a standstill for longer periods of time (more than 2 minutes). Avoid letting the clutch slip frequently and for extended periods. This would cause the engine oil to heat up, thereby heating up the cooling system. You should drive at low speeds (4-stroke style - letting the engine pull you) and not at high speeds not by letting the clutch slip (2-stroke style)."

So, it's a driving machine and not made for idling!
Regards,
EDE
