your wrong Bushie, they are a single double row ball bearing for the 2006-2008. But if what you say is true then let's all beat at John's door!

I've just ordered 24 rods from Taiwan for the 2001-2004 Husaberg 650s. I'll have them here in about 6-8 weeks I suppose. depends how quick the ship moves at a guess!

was there anything else?

650 bottom end rebuild

Hi Taffy, After reading about this article on the 450 rebuild, what parts are still available for the 650- 2007? and what parts are not available?
Cheers

you can still buy a crank assembly complete, just a rod if that is what you want, they have the 'I' and the 'II' pistons still there. what they have done is stopped the crank primary gear (which I don't suppose you need!) the clutch tubes and the reed valve metal tongue. they have also stopped the balancer which means you can't get bearings or the balancer.

so I'm having a steel ring designed. the bearings from the old 2001-2005 engines had an OD of 47mm and the KTM special has one of 49mm so i'm trying to get a 1mm steel ring made that will slip ijnside your balancer and then you order the ring and a pair of my balancer bearings.
job done!

but it is going to get worse instead of better - and soon. My information is that KTMs head of parts is new and 'trying to make an impression' by decimating anything that doesn't pay etc. and so he's clearing the decks.

what we really needed was a man on the inside of a KTM stores who would search out similar parts. at the moment some of the Husaberg stuff they have stopped, a resourceful man would spot as being similar to 'X' off some KTM at some point, alas we don't have anyone batting for our team.

as an example, they have stopped the tubes in the clutch so I asked the parts man I use to think where KTM might use tubes in another clutch so he thought of one possibility and i can now get KTM clutch tubes that are 2mm longer and so easy enough to cut down.

but nobody needs clutch tubes!

I'd get the primary gears made but I know that people can use up all the used ones for years.
