In the US I would be chasing up Dale lineaweaver or Rick Bozarth

Travis of Thumper racing would also be worth contacting I know he has built some 102mm bore berg engines.

the specials are a standard OEM part. OK? what has chnaged is whether we choose to use ball or roller and most importantly - the endfloat.

thanks for listening.

No balls in my rebuilds they are all rollers, thay are not genuine SKF Germany but the same shape and dimension, Mine come from the land of the rising sun ( Japan ), my endfloat is set at .05.
I first told the world about the issue when i had failures on most bikes i sold, the factory or Sweden refused to listen to my story and complaints, the Husaberg KTM Australia team asked me what i used after i sorted the problem as they still had race bikes 06 KTM 570 and Bergs failing in desert races. As a last resort we borrowed some bearings from the the KTM team at Finke desert race in 2006 for my mates stock 525 and we found they were using the Husaberg bearing in their KTMs, guess what !!!! there top riders bearings failed on the first leg down on a stroked 540 to 570 2006 KTM. We survived Australian Safari 2007 650 FE 10th Outright, Condo 750 and then i got calls about my bearings.
Maybe we should talk about test cricket Taffy.???? but lets not get into one day cricket just yet.

Re: ORANGEBERG online mechanical advice

I have done only one ride 110 KM and change to oil, the magnet was completely full of metal just as much as it was when it destroyed the main bearing it has shiny 2 to 3mm flecks mainly 1mm and some copper colour.
I went around the block with new oil and pulled the bung out more metal on the magnet. going for another ride and will see if it happens again i have had it with this f en
