Like Risky1 said... and if youve ever heard it (Swedish punk band - No Fun at All's 'Cellestial Q & A') , "I can promise you the time(Ride) of your life".

skinnyberg,

mine had the exact same issues, there are some remedies here for the valve cover leak, it is common as it is a metal to metal seal and unless you get the sealant just right you will have a leak. the fluid leak from the weep hole is common as well, it is an indication that the seals MIGHT BE BAD , change that asap as it might end up leaking coolant into the engine oil. if you are going to fix that valve cover, pull it off and have a real good look at the rockers and tappets, cam wheel and chain etc. read up on what is acceptable and what is not.

enjoy.

Hi Risly1 & Skinnyberg,

If skinnyberg is talking about the valve inspection covers then they have gaskets. The OEM 98 gaskets were made of gasket paper, which do seep oil, he can get the new glass fiber reinforced silicone gaskets from our on line store.

http://www.husabergstore.com/

The official name of the cover that does not have a gasket is the 'Rocker Arm Cover'.

By the way skinny, you can download the parts manual, shop manual and owners manual from this web site (see the Yellow to your left) or from the official Husaberg web site at www.husaberg.se

Check on downloads, previous.

Regards,

Joe

Thanks guys, this is all great news and I feel better every time I read this now. BTW; it was just the front V-cover and I think I'll give you a call soon.
I just got done with my sweet new Big Gun exhaust system I got off ebay for $200 bucks...great deal! New in the box and the headers were Aluminum coated. Had to go to Big Gun today and pick up a forest thingy to make it legal--that was a job--turns out the can is a 1999 and they did not make one for it But the guys set me up with the newer end and two hours later It looks better than new
Anyway thanks for all of the help Tomorrow MXA & DB has a special ride and I feel like sneaking out to try out my new system....Hmmmm.

Re: RE: Re: You guys are killing me!

[quote="skinnyberg"]Well that sounds a little better. I know these are high-stung bikes and I don't mind the upkeep, but It sure sounds like there is a lot of problems, but you're right, this place is like a Hospital and people come here to vent and get fixed…I’ll keep it in mind.
Question: when do you know these engines are out of whack? I read on here when they get hard to start or finickyâ€

The seals for the weep hole have been changed,Dan at motoxotica told me they were upgraded.So what you pull out and what you get will be 2 differnt things.The new ones look a little more durable.Be careful installing them it is a little tricky.They should be pressed in.
