Already looked at it
Its a FE600 Not a FE600E.
There is no way I'm riding one of these things with out a e start.
My old 600 was impossible to start hot on the side of a hill by kicking it.

That is not easy I heard. Reason I heard it is that I got one -00 FE600E engine in mint condition in my garage waiting for the frame. No it's not mine, it belongs to a friend. And no it's not for sale...

All it needs is a working ignition system and a new starter (we have located both). He who renovated it told me it was pure luck that he found the parts he needed, and a few of them brand new.

This is not to "rub it in", but to prove with a bit of luck it can happen! Don't give up!

Like I mentioned before one of the bearings in this motor was destroyed. I've split the cases. Here's a shot of the bearing and some of the bits of metal I found inside.

So now it's time to order bearings and seals. Taffy seems like a good one-stop-shop for all of this but with shipping from England to California, it might end up being an expensive proposition. I'll have to dig around on this website to see what alternatives I can find. Please don't hesitate to chime in with suggestions. It seems there is some debate as to whether or not some of these bearings are "bespoke" Husaberg or if they're generic.
I'm thinking the safe thing to do is replace everything.

Oh and by the way, I haven't yet figured out how to get that crankshaft gear and nut off. Might have to partially re-assemble the motor, maybe use the clutch basket to have something I can grab hold of when I take the impact gun to that nut. My mistake for not thinking of this before.
Any ideas?

My friend, let me tell you a small anecdote and let's see if you get the underlying message. BTW, we spell things out to our cousins....

If the American postal system was competitive, "we" would be in a lot of trouble, I mean serious phuqin trouble. your 'used' parts are cheaper than ours but luckily your postage is a shameful mess, it costs double the item to get the posted!

luckily in Europe and especially the UK, the postage is very, very competitive and cheap. We are also quick (they go hand-in-hand). so everyday, I thank the American postal system for making my business competitive.

as for the gear, just airgun it, you know, b-r-u-m, b-r-u-m....done.

as for what to put in a 2002 650? concentrate all your money on the front of the engine, scrimp not on the bottom end. if it's in the cases = do it right.

new balance bearings
new roller mains (0.6mm float)
new big end bearing if not rod
new little end bush
new intermediate inner beating
re-nikasil usually
new piston always

upgraded CCTB (rip the blob of alloy off the tensioner)

the cylinder head will cost you a fortune
new 37mm inlets
cut all 4 seats
face the exhausts
kiss the stems of the exhausts
DVSK
new cam bearings
later ADC and modified spring
go to the 08 cam

look for wear as follows
tappet pads cupped
rocker bushes
rocker shafts
cam follower bearings
seal off the L bar hole as the ADC will work

down the bottom left
clutch steels
grind the spalling off the gear selector
sledge mod
blank off the kickstart decomp hole
cam chain

you should be about Ok with this, the rest is detail like flat covers, clean metal, washing shyte away,

if you go to Facebook/Taffmeisters/Video I have a video lf a 2002 NTB 650 with a 3mm taller piston fitted and it starts first time......

yup -3mm taller! no shit.

if you're doing the engine, you must conmsider your carb part of this otherwise the bike won't run properly.

regards

Taffy

Doing well

Hi. You are doing a lot better than myself with your rebuild. I currently have my 2002 Fe501e at a machine shop in an attempt to have the swing arm bolt removed. Tried heating and rapidly cooling it. Even tried pressing it out with my 20 ton wood splitter. No luck here.

I've had success removing stuck swing arm bolts using a pneumatic impact hammer. Sometimes the shock generated by each of the successive impacts beats a steady application of force. I also like to use a penetrant called Kroil (made by Kano Labs).
Sounds like your swing arm bolt might be too stubborn even for that.
Best of luck!

I think I'm due for an update.

I ended up using Taffmeisters for the majority of parts that were needed to get the motor back together. I also utilized Taffy’s advice and youtube videos. I don’t think I’d be where I am with this build without Taffy (credit must also be given to Julie who was very helpful with all my orders).

I’ve overhauled dirt bike engines before but the Husaberg is different than anything I’d ever worked on. I think it took three tries to get the cases and cylinder sleeve back together correctly (at least I *think* I got them assembled correctly).

So last night, the motor finally went back into the frame and the attached images show what that looks like (as if you guys have never seen such a sight…ha ha!)

Next, I’ll be going through the wiring rats nest. At one time, the previous owner was running a capacitor in place of a battery, and he had some generic toggle switches wired in as well. I’m not very good with the electrical side of things so I expect this to be a relatively challenging phase of the rebuild.

Cheers
