Just to make a quick update...I took a video of the bike issue regarding smoking but I am going to keep it private for now ...engine head will come out this week, we are just letting it rest to see where we can find trace of oil when we open it...but it might still go trow a process really similar to what dr_D (not 100% sure of his name but the dohc guy )

Here is what needs doing

I saw this on one of your posts:

"THE BIKE COMES WITH A FULL SERVICE, A MONTHS WARRANTY AND A FULL MOT

THE ENGINE HAS HAD A COMPLETE REBUILD WORTH 1400.00 INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING PARTS/UPGRADES...."

So did he not warranty the bike?

naaa ...2 moths passed when i started using it ( i didnt test drive it)...i complain when i first went out during warranty about clutch noises I thought was the oil as i later on check it was old ' in the email reply from him i got


''we have no 100% sure answer to this. so I twell you what I know OK?

the clutch drum in the middle was upgraded twice more after your bike. in 2005 and 2006. the last three numbers on 90% Husabergs is .....200, in 2005 it fishes 250 and in 2006 it finishes ......500. I think you start here. some say that the problem is with two 'C' washers under the drum. we have never found an answer. it sounds like a dry bearing correct? "hhaaaaaarrrrrrrrueueueue"

but nothing will go wrong with your bike, it is just a noise right now.


well we open the engine, open the clutch and we find out that the driving sleeve were worn out so he didn't even care to replace them ''problem fix'' didn't happen again

i only used once (before the general work,now need even more work) so I was thinking the smoking was something to do with the traveling...the bike smoke like crazy for 3 minutes on start and then stop, even when you start it just later on it won't smoke ...only when is left cool for like 1 day it start again
It didn't smoke when i bought it (I WONDER WHY???? ) ..

so we presume now is something to do with head ''microfrature'' or something similar that is letting the oil throw the head when is cold...we will try soon to fix it or a new head will cost 617


so in general was my fault, I trusted this guy from his reputation....
believe me when I am saying the work was half done because if i can't fix the head my bill will be around 1200

617 head
70 battery
80 cam chain
oil+air filter+oil steam seal+driving sleeve 30/40
first try to work on head (money not going to my mechanic) as he send it to someone 100

that's nearly 900

plus more work ...so you see why i am not a happy costumer
