yeh, Julia's becoming a big asset here. She's been with me nearly two years and is thoroughly deicated and takes on new explanations everyday.

she says: 'what is.....' and I go around the workshop explaining almost from the beginning what is what in a 4T engine.

I'll tell her how pleased you are...you've gotta let the mule catch the carrott now and again!!!! not calling her a mule or anything....!

regards

Hi MX563. Just checked back to see how you are getting on. Love the scary 20 ton wood splitter bit! You do know safety glasses will not stop parts with that much power behind them, right? Husaberg cases can break at the pivot with the right combo of errors. Just sayin`.... Alas, you might have to shave the pivot shaft off flush, then drill out the remains. This job must be done on a milling machine. Don`t sweat loosing the pivot axle. Yours is so corroded it`s done anyway. Kawasaki has axles for small dirt bikes that work fine as swing arm pivots. Measure yours before cutting it, use those numbers to select the new one.
No really, it looks like you are doing most things right. Good job.
Wiring. No easy way. Decide which of 5 systems you have. Use the best wiring chart you can find. Use real auto wire and connectors, the factory used the cheapest available. Odd, as the rest is so good. If you are used to the electrical quality of a recent Kawa MXer, the Husaberg stuff will be a shock. Just science the heck out of it, and it will suddenly run fine. One hopes.
Thanks from tourist

My apologies for doing such a terrible job with updates. This one is the important one...the bike is back together and running! I just put in a 24 mile trail ride on it last weekend. I was pleasantly surprised with the performance.

That being said, the lighting isn't all hooked up and the kickstart shaft seal leaks oil, as does the shift lever shaft seal. Oh, and also the clutch cover gasket. I pieced the entire motor back together, it runs well, but I screwed up the stupid seals. Doh!!!

Anyway, here's a short video if the bike running.
