The First Failure

The following picture is that of the very first documented US failure of a post 2000 Husaberg engine.

Wow! Time sure flys when you are having fun.

Re: The First Failure

Hi Dale,

Did you happen to record (Pictures) the resulting damage?

Re: The First Failure

School of hard knocks.

The infamous "Gear Wheel Torque Limiter" (800.40.021.100) was initially a simple one piece gear cluster.

The engine was a 470 with an hour or so of run time.

The fuel delivery was lean, the engine kicked back against the starter motor and the one piece gear cluster exploded. Consequent damage was considerable as the engine did start and run.

Hence, the introduction of the "Torque Limiter".

Sorry, as I do not have any pictures. I merely stumbled across the earlier link while searching for something completely unrelated.

Replacement parts were scarce at best. The proud owner was down and out for several months all the while diligently making his payments.

Sincerely,
Dale

PS
If not mistaken I believe "Berger" ultimately ended up owning the bike.

Gotta say I miss Kalitude posting to the site. If I remember correctly, she rode a trick ttr125 while Kevin rode the 470, when it ran.

Hope they're still hitting the trails as a happy couple!

heh heh, and kevin rode that 470 right into a big-ass tree at the 49-er qualifier 3-4 years ago. we were on the same minute and he was ahead of me, putting out a cloud of smoke that would make a 2-stroke owner proud when i came upon him in a heap and the bike pretty much upside-down, also in a heap. he was breathing tho, so i kept going.
