I'm seeing $173 USD on Munn (#80036010000). The parts I've bought locally ended up being close to the US fiche prices (in CAD of course), so I think I'll just order them locally and not worry about shipping etc.

I contacted the 2 cam grinders in my area and they hadn't heard of a Husaberg, so they obviously didn't have profiles made for my cam. The cost to have the masters made would have been as much as or more than a new cam. The local MC machine shop I contacted (reputable place) told me to contact Web Camshafts in California, but for the cost of a new OEM cam, it's not worth it.

I'll be putting in an order for a new cam and bearings, but knowing that's not the source of my problems I'll keep looking.

OK, I found some ugly bits under the side cover. I'm not sure if it's the source of the metal sludge and flakes, but it can't be helping.

After I replaced the water pump seal in the fall I had to F&#% around with the kick starter. It popped out at least once when I was fitting the cover. I read on here that shimming out the sledge with some small washers will help keep the sledge in place (which it did) but it seems that the kick start gear was dragging on the sledge a little. Shame I didn't notice it when I was assembling it last time (at midnight on a weeknight...)

The needle bearing supporting the kick starter gear seems a little worn as the gear feels loose on the shaft. It's not terrible, but there is more radial play compared the other idlers so maybe that could cause it to rub a little more.



The shaft has obviously been hitting the sledge incorrectly:

And


I can't recall if it was like that before or if the damage is new. It might account for some of the flakes, but I'm reluctant to think I've solved it. There are also tiny non-magnetic flakes in the oil that wouldn't be accounted for by this.

I think I should button back up and ride it to see. I hardly use the kick start anyways...

Sign up to KTMtalk.com... register with a non-free email address if possible (speeds up process). Once there, you can get a 25% discount from Munn. It beats the Cdn dealer pricing. Trust me, I am shopping for $1000+ worth of parts and Munn is the way to go.

If you are only buying an item or two, then go local, otherwise go to the Muricans.
Thanks from bushmechanic and KentJ

Damn, Ima get me some of that. 25% off OEM parts is a great deal. Is 25% off a typical sale?

Knowing me I'll have everything lined up and the sale will be over by the time I go to buy...

I think I should bite the bullet and split the cases to see what's going on. It's not toast yet but I don't have a lot of confidence in this old bike with the amount of metal paste floating in the oil. I ran the bike for 5 minutes and the magnet was covered again (no chunks though). That must be hard as hell on the bearings and rings etc.

Is there a rebuild parts list kicking around? It would be good get an idea of the parts needed and costs before tearing it down.

I'll post my list in a bit. It's roughly $225 without any major parts... add crank bearings (Orangeberg), jet kit (taffy), balancer or balancer bearings, etc.

Here's my file. If your computer doesn't download it, PM me and I will send some other way.

Note: I didn't spend a lot of time looking at replacing bearings or seals in the transmission. This will get you started. Ignore the stuff at the top; concentrate on the part numbers and descriptions.

I simply googled free file sharing site, so let me know if anything is fishy with the link provided and I will pull it off the post. I did a test download and it seems fine.

How much for a used cam (PM me if you want)? Couldn't find those on your site . Keep in mind it's $1.9 CAD per GBP these days...

Big question, Did you run the bike after you swamped it?

If yes,

If not aware?

The water in your oil can and will cause all kinds of havoc. Oil and water do not mix even under extreme movement. Yes a little water will evaporate but allot of water will wash oil from all moving parts and create lots off heat and pre mature wear on everything. The water will become the lubricant and the oil will be useless. When the engine is running the oil will sit on top allowing the water to pump, this will never allow any oil to reach any of the moving parts, then heat and meltdown.

By looking at the cam it is pooched for sure. It however will still work as per profile but it is far, far from being how it should. The cam looks as if lubricant was missing or foreign objects flowed through the oil and ground it? the journals look as if they were very hot with the bluish coloration by the pictures?? Hard to tell without looking in person. The pitting will cause extensive wear on other parts just as sandpaper does. The cam lobe surface must be machined and polished smooth and maintained by way of lubrication for optimal reliability and durability.

I am sure you are aware of all this but did notice that no mention was made about the bike running after swamping. I think Taffy has hit the nail on the head with the starter clutch shim. Do tell when you find the failed part
