Question Oil consumption - FS 650e 2006

Hey fellow husaberg owners,

I just got my berg project finished and everything seems to work!

I just cannot figure why my berg consumes oil.. Its mostly while i wheelie i have figured. I have blocked my rear vent and the frame, and fitted a one way valve in my breather mod routed to the swingarm overflow bottle. I have attached some pictures, then you can also see my finished project.

What do you think about the setup, is the hose too bent, or the valve too early in the line or?..

Engine is fairly new built with rings, valve seals etc..

I fill my oil up to about 1/3 of the oil glass, and after a single ride i refilled more than 200ml.. Then i had a commuting ride just low rpms and bike used almost nothing.. Its not like im revving the shit out of the bike, im really babying it..

I really hope you can help since solving this problem means alot to me..

Best regards, Christian.

I think your filter should be pointing up , and the highest position possible , like up near the top of the radiator ,that way the oil will drip back into the motor . In your setup it will just go to the ground

do you get any oil in your bottle ? or trace ?
if i have the same problem as you, and i think its for coming from the wheelie then yes i would think is the breather...

what could happen in your set up is that the oil get pass the one way valve


if you search some other set up online they are running it way higher then yours to prevent oil to come out and one way valve (or filter) in the end

Ps. I can see that wheelie bar on the back

Actually my breather is pointing towards the back of my bike aswell, might be. I think i will try running the breather up towards the coolant hose to the top of the radiator, maybe over my frame or something.. I dont know if the filter has to be pointing down, since it is a one way valve, it shouldnt be possible for the oil to go back inside the engine when it has passed the valve? I will check out some other routes, and also if the filter is wet inside! The valve is functioning, i can only blow my breath through one way.

Alrighty, i think i will try and run it above the frame backbone and with the valve and filter on the way down like your picture.. Should stop my oil leak! Im not sure if a catchcan is necessary, i could run it back towards the swingarm pivot on the other side again though.

Thanks for helping man!

Oil breather mod

Maybe like this one, just with my one way valve before the filter.

thats the one ...catch can shouldn't be a problem all the oil should go back in the crankcase ...but as you wheelieing a lot (check if something is going out
''oil dripping on frame'' ) and then decide if to ran it in the bottle

no worries go and enjoy that wheelie bar

Filling the oil to 1/3 of the glass when cold is too much. I don't wheelie very much but
as the discussion goes, filling to bottom of glass when cold resulting in middle of glass when hot is the way to go.
On my 06 FS650 cold oil level is at bottom of the glass appearing to be something like 1/8 up.
At 155 hours I top off after a hard ride just merely an ounce or 2.
I run the stock breather

Breather mod

Hey guys,

So i found today that it isnt possible to fit it over the backbone of the frame due to my fuel tank.. The tank bends the hose completely and on the ignition side it isnt possible to turn the handlebar all the way without bending the breather completely.. Also is too difficult to run the hose down under the tank onto the backside of the cooler..

I have decided to run the same kind of route, just under the frame backbone, but alot higher then it is already. Have a look at the pictures!

What do you think of the route, it should be working i suppose?
