as my school teacher would say: david would do so much better if he concentrated more on his work rather than other people's!

saving4parts

you need to fit the best ,ains you can. get yourself the bearings that thomas recomends. have the right case machined so that you have .65mm axial float. try to measure this before you split the cases. yes i know you want to get on with sdtripping it but NOW is the time.

i also have the journals lightly machined down by hand and i even relieve the crankcase mouths for the bearings to sit in. i bond them in. only then can you gaurantee some life out of the 650 motor.

regards

Thanks for the replies lads. I have another question (a stupid one) that you might be able to help me out with. My bike was manufactured in 11/04. Does that make it an 04 or 05 models. I'm confused as most manufacturers seem to release their new models towards the end of the previous year. I've noticed there's a few differences in parts between the 04 & 05. Thanks again

boy you really do need help!

november '04 manufactured is an '05 model. they start producing them from september/october onwards and by the time we register them i the northern hemisphere it's normally the new year. however its not unusual to register them from november onwards as an '04 but '05 model.

regards

Ken oath i do. This is my first Husaberg, and my other bikes have nearly always been 2 strokes. My motard (SXV) has journal mains, and this splitting the cases to get to the cylinder stuff is all new to me. So i'll apologise in advance for asking a shitload of stupid questions.

Cheers on the model info. I had suspected as much and have been buying 05 parts. When i do buy them i have been checking the fiche to see if there are any differences between the 04 & 05 stuff though
