RE: vent

"just fine" describes a great many things relating to the level of design and engineering found in most motorcycles

such is well below the level I am required to work at in my day job if I want to keep it longer than a week.

as a result I have plenty to do

Not one for the quantum mechanics of the internal volumetric co-efficient properties of the Husaberg, I have a heater hose on the vent from the front of the rocker cover with the carby side blocked off. My 06 FE550 was setup from factory for Adam Lees A4DE that year with the same pipe fitted. No check valve or even a filter. Only a slight discharge out the pipe after 5 hours of riding. That bike had done 220hrs when I sold it & was still going like a train. No vacuum or pressure buildup without having to induce the oily vapour through the carby. I'll stick with it for sure.

Skully, could you not just go and ride it then...


perhaps reading the thread from the begining and brushing up on the background of the OP might be interesting.

no one is reinventing the wheel skully. there are plenty of engineers who with the benefit of hindsight after years of tinkering know enough to improve on OEM designs.

thanks to the OP and others you can buy better camshafts, better carb needles, better main bearings, better valve springs .... ...... all things that as OEM either break or don't work properly.

the primary function of a reed valve on the hole i mentioned is to encourage oil flow to the crank. such may be useful if you wanted to extend the life of the big end bearing in a 628 engine.

mine was just starting to go at 200hrs. if it hadn't then like yourself I would have no reason to modify anything.

the addition of a high speed air check valve to the breather doesn't alter the pressure differential between the crank and the gearbox.

I broke 2 gearboxes and 2 rear hubs in 2 years, hub problem fixed by running talon hubs, they don't break. I am working on the gearbox.

with your approach to the issue i'd still be running oem hubs and still breaking one every 5000km.

The wheel is one of the better inventions ever made. So no wonder that people find it worth to reinvent over and over again, it is that good.

40 years as a bike tech and 3 posts on this forum.... Bushmechanic was amazingly reserved in his response, given you obvious ignorance of the information within this one thread, and Dale Lineweaver's and his own contributions to this site.

Lighten up, Francis.
