Husaberg frames...

Hi..

It seems that a lot of the Husaberg models uses similar frames..

This frame on e-bay http://www.ebay.de/itm/Rahmen-KFZ-Br...ht_2737wt_1141

Is this the so-called "new-frame" and will engine, bits and other parts from a 2005 FS 650 fit it?
At first glance is looks allright, but...

Re: Husaberg frames...

The picture shows a 00-02 frame and NOT a -99 frame.
And yes they are almost all the same frames from 00-08 with some changes in steering angle from -04.

Re: Husaberg frames...

Jampe,
I thought the frame change was 2001 with steering head change in 2004.
The Doc also states that 2002 was the second year of the engine version which would
seem to confirm this.

Re: Husaberg frames...

Hi
there are some differance in frames through the years
00 is on its own since it had the old engine and swing arm and shock
01-02 think geometry same as 00 but with new engine swingarm, different shock betwen the model years
03-06 stepper fork angle, shock laid down slightly a few mm
07-08 5mm taller fork (same as KTM ) and I think skock is laid down few mm best handling chassi of bunch

Re: Husaberg frames...

Does anyone know if the shock from later years, prefferable 07-08 work in the 00 frame with modified shock tower? I have access to welders and plan to take bike apart this summer for either nickel plating the frame or repainting it.

Hakan
dont remember in detail if the upper mount is the same but I think so, it is the swingarm thats the difference
dont care for 07 shock in stock form rebound is horrible
I have an 05 FE for sale if you are interested

Re: Husaberg frames...

Did anyone else notice the way in which the number was stamped? Looks like the bloke who stamped it had a quick 9 Schooners of VB beforehand?
The number "3" on the end is even backwards????
