Hey Rens I think I will call the new bike Helga, big boned and strong

hopefully Sandra doesn't take her new broomstick and move out

Goose was after some pictures of engine breather setups,

one is a heater hose elbow into a garden hose .. the 628 engine has no blowby so i don't run a filter on it, the 700 uses a piece of the original husaberg breather 3 ended wobbygong and a poly elbow feeding down to a car fuel filter

I block the rear rocker cover vent and just use the front one

also made some pics of the carb breather filters I use , 2 of the upper carb vents are blocked, one from each side goes up under the tank into fuel filters

the overflow hose has a bit of 3/4" poly pipe with air filter foam in it, it hangs down under the swingarm.

my internetz is slowed for another week have managed to upload to flickr though

just so I'm clear, this is the best forum on the web, spam and all. yes, having the old stuff would make it better - but, the quality of skills and advice that this boar brings is unmatched (personal issues and all)

That said, I have the luxury of thanking Busch Mechanic for helping me with the pics that I requested and I get to thank Taffy for the starter . . . all in the same post! Heh, I find that awesome.

On to bigger news . . . I am buying a 2004 FS450 tomorrow complete with slipper clutch, spare exhause (stock) and a mountain of crap. Thereafter . . . . I'm going to annoy the hell out of this whole board with requests for advice and help while building my 650 cases with parts from the 450! I'll do my best to search the board first prior to buggering up you folks for specific advice. Again, thanks Bushie!
Thanks from Dr_C, Ghost, bushmechanic and 2 others

Checking valve lash with Dial Guage

its always a pleasure to amuse Goose!

this is how I check the valve lash









it does take a bit of practice to get a reading that makes sense, the oil in the rocker arms, elephants feet and CFBs needs to move out of the way to get the real result, steady upward pressure on the arm and wait 5 seconds or so then push it back down.

Ive measured the "turns" method and find its very inconsistent .

Ironically, did the "turns" method on my berg last weekend. . . and the results were "close but no cigar" on one intake and one exhaust. Off by a substantial margin on the other two valves. Yeah, in a pinch with no feeler, I'd still do it. But, I'm sticking to the guage!
Thanks from bushmechanic and rens bos

funny its been raining a lot this spring/summer but the sand is still dry as, it would take 100mm overnight to make any difference now.

yes the 700 is way faster all round, you can see in the vids ive buttoned it off a fair bit sooner than the 628 ... too blooday fast

just been ringing its 105mm neck all afternoon I can ride my whole track in 5th average speed 35ks

the 628 wants 3 different gears to do the same job

this vid is better IMHO
