Conrod/cylinder sleeve

hi everyone,

I'm new here and hope anyone can help me. I'm desperate to find a connecting rod for my 2000 husaberg fe 400.where can I find one?
other question, I also need to coat the cylinder sleeve, should I do that or is easier/cheaper to buy one?

thanks for your answers,

Rui Santos.

Hi if you go here 2000 Husaberg - Parts Manual

get the part numbers you need and search for them here

Munn Racing

select "OEM parts " in the search field and remove all dashes and spaces from the parts numbers

you can get a Pro_X rod and a cheaper hotrods rod for a ktm450rfs that is 119mm long whereas you have a 120mm long rod, and you will need to make a small bushing for the little end, so it will work but ....

03-6423 (119mm hotrods rod)

any good replating service can repair your liner as long as it is still nice and round.

good luck

Hello Ruisantos

Don't listen to him.

he doesn't know what he's on about as usual.

your rod is no longer available I'm afraid and the one mentioned above is for the year after yours and can't be fitted. even the option he gives you needs serious major re-working which isn't mentioned.

however, I do have a couple of options for you. PM me and I'll try and help.

it is the last of the line, a 2000 model.

Taffy,

I have a 2008 Fe 550.... I can try posting a picture.. I am in no need of parts at the moment and maybe never will be as I only have approx 50 hours on the bike... But I do not want to be stuck with a dead bike if I need parts that are discontinued or the ones that are impossible to get... I searched in many places and no one makes a rod kit for this? Or am I just not looking in the right places.?

Again sorry for thread jacking

FWIW having found a few superseded "no longer available" 02 parts USA dealers have a lot in stock and there are many members on here with parts laying around who are keen to help

there is a BIG difference between actually "no longer available" and Taffy discovering he can't get a part anymore

it is always worth checking around because Taffmiesters is obviously NOT a US dealer

the 04 to 08 and the 70 deg berg parts are still all available from ktm /berg/husky dealers all around the world, if someone tells you they can't get something look elsewhere.

general ideas to help locate rods etc Aftermarket or custom Conrods Pistons pins

again the guy above talks balls. he fails to tell you he identified the WRONG bike in the first place ir apologise for yet again making an idiot of himself.

here's the challenge

find a 400 OEM rod for a 2000 FE400 Husaberg.

as for your bike Awesome, I expect all parts tp be available until the end of 2008 and then they will drop off the radar completely I'm afraid. it will then be a case of cross-sourcing it.

finding stuff on the shelf and getting it from the factory are two different things and the guy above is just talking absolute drivel.

just about anything last used 10 years ago is dropped like a stone by KTM.

given that so much stuff from the 2008s can be used right back and yet nothing from 2009 onwards can: we'd best be writing to KTM but I think a conjoined action plan on UHE is doubtful.

I simply gave the OP some information to consider a way of figuring out what to do by himself.... he knows which model bike he has.

trying to push dodgy modified ill fitting aftermarket products as an "answer" to every question while showering unhelpful abuse all over the site because I suggest an alternative to spaffmeisters is getting old

yet another alternative is to get a pin and big end bearing from pro-x or another source and have carillo make you a carburised rod .. rod approx $319, pin and bearing approx $60

http://www.pro-x.com/downloads/technical.pdf

wossner have very detailed piston catalog if you're looking for pistons specs

http://wossneronline.com/2014_wosson...ns_catalog.pdf

and both CP and JE do custom pistons at a very reasonable price

it might seem like Im being harsh on "poor old Taffy" but as he continues to refer to me as an arsehole with no idea I have no issue offering an alternative to purchasing parts from him

no, you got it wrong again and again you can't hold your hands up and say it. you clearly didn't get it right.

let's be clear: I am throwing mud back. i don't think my worst critic would ever say I started this abuse, you deserve it all - and more.

whether it is poor jetting advice or poor rod selection - you're the man

so GFY (and it isn't 'good for you')

anyone who has to find an old ebay sale from two years ago to get a neutral response has lost it.

to those looking in, a neutral response sounds poor but to those that are half+ mechanics they know the vassitudes of engines mean that a jetting kit needs a few brain cells to fit and a few more to make the bike run right before you even fitted it.

a jetting kit is biought by people with leaking valves, blocked jets, tappets tight, cams with no lobes and tuliped valves.

you though know this so whereas from anyone else this might be an acceptable thought (oh dear it doesn't work) from him it is mud slinging of the worst kind and just scrapping around in the bottom of the barrel. you changed the subject becAUSE YET AGAIN YOUR JETTING ADVICE WAS WRONG.

I always try and have a valid argument not this nausiating mud slinging for the sake of it.

your aim as you pointed out so many times was to phuq my business up. perhaps you should have mentioned that to Zen when you came back.

Taffy
