Re: Mystery Husaberg Engine?? (older 501)

I havent done it but would assume it should be some what simple? supposedly the frame is different in the area of the starter of the bike but i would assume it would be similar brakets and mount in a simliar place.....shouldnt be too hard? maybe?

Re: Mystery Husaberg Engine?? (older 501)

It looks to be an early (maybe 91?) 501.
Anyways, long story short, it's in my bike now.
I drove down to ATL and picked it up last Friday, made adapter brackets and fit it in my '98 FE501E frame.
It appeared to be a fresh rebuild, somebody spent A LOT of time smoothing the casting out on the engine.
No oil pump, filter screen only.
Got it in the bike, hooked everything up, started second kick.
Got an hour of break in time on it, drained the oil, looks glittery and dark after one hour like I expected out of an early engine.
It was a fresh rebuild but rebuilt with the only stuff available at the time. (Aluminum cam gear, old style metal chain tensioner, etc)

If I were to change the oil say every 4 hours, and pay attention to it (like I do anyhow) how long do you think this engine will hold up?
Any tips on how to make it last for at least a little while?


I'll post pics later.

Hi, your engine year is 1990. I have one bike with engine number close to your serial number 1010403.
