The Great 200 Husaberg adventure

My buddy recently bought a large quantity of Husqvarna spares, which when we sorted it out included (most of) a 2005 Husaberg... after I helped him with transport, storage and beers it has now ended up in my garage for the exorbitant sum of 200 (that is about Euro230 or US$260 ).
It is not pretty, but complete except plastics.

Bargain or money pit? Rebuild it or bury it? Decisions, decisions...

Well, let's go on an adventure. After all, what can possibly go wrong?
Thanks from bushmechanic, tourist and 3nduro

Step 1 was encouraging. An Internet check based on the number plate says that, apparently, it is not stolen etc. Also the engine number is correct for the registration number. It was registered in late 2004, which makes sense for a 2005 model.

Step 2 involved sending the authorities 25, requesting a duplicate vehicle registration document. (Hmmm... I just increased the cost by over 10% !! ).

Enough paperwork, tomorrow we should take a look at the actual bike....
Thanks from tourist

You've gotta build it now it's registered!

I may be able to help with plastics and bits too when you're ready.

Ok, so I drained the oil and this came out - looks horrible, but is actually brown not black, no 'bits' in it, not smelling burned and it still had good film strength. It is old oil, but good quality oil.

The sump plug was bad news - at first sight I assumed flakes from the main bearings. Actually it is all fine metal dust, probably from the clutch plates. The magnet makes them line up (just like iron filings on a piece of paper held over a magnet).

Oil screen - totally clean, no bits. Oil filter and gallery also spotless. Things are looking better!

Off with the clutch side cover and everything appears fine. Clutch fingers look unworn. Zero debris inside the bottom of the cases
Water pump area has no corrosion/silt/rust/small animals nesting.

Crank has no apparent radial play(but the drive gear also stops that - I need to check the ignition side).
Crank end float feels like less than 1mm, I need to check properly with the dial gauge.

Valve clearances are correct, haven't yet gone further 'up top'.

It's not looking too bad at present? Any comments from the experts?

Quite possibly - it was part of a huge heap of stuff including Huskies and a Honda

Can anyone guide me on the cam bearings -I know they are 6201-2rs, but should they be C3 clearance, or standard? thanks!
