3L of engine oil in a Husaberg 2008!!!

This is really great news fellas. I have a way to increase oil capacity of my Husabergs to about 3 liters. Wim Dercs is racing Husaberg side cars in Nederland and he builds from scratch an oil filter housing with attachment to hook up cooler or what I'll be doing external large spin on filter under the seat. I'll install 2 one way check valves in lines to prevent oil drain back. Filter holds about a liter of oil. There are many different filters to choose from. Many different micron ratings as well. I'm going to use popular generic filter housing available on ebay. Original filter will be used as well. Second I'll make wet ignition as per Bushmecanic. This adds another liter give or take. Total around 3 liters!!! And better filtration. Lastly I'll bump up oil pressure, by installing stronger pressure relief spring in regulator. This should improve reliability substantially. Also install mini pressure gauge. Here is Wim Dercs emeil info@heftruckservicederks.nl here are 3 adapters that I got from Wim Derks. I have his permission to share his information. 53 euro each. All 3 of my Bergs will be updated. Husaberg exclusivity and power with Honda longevity here we come. This is part of 1000 engine hors before major overhaul.

Here is the kind of filter mount that I'm gonna use. https://m.ebay.ca/itm/1-NEW-NAPA-477...257Ciid%253A24 ebay sourced but napa has them apparently. Guys are using them for Duramax diesel and installing 1 micron fuel filters.

I think that you have to install only one check valve at the inlet of the filter.

One check valve is all that's required. Two won't hurt anything. Pressure will be increased as well.

Why bother. ?


I am more interested in how much moterex costs in your country. It's time to talk about the best VALUE oil again. Some countries are paying 120 dollars for this stuff!!!!!

More oil is good for engine longevity. As well as higher pressure. Factory set is a bit low.
