Hi, I'm from Cape Town.
I bought a FE 550e a few weeks ago, price was reasonable but I soon realized that I need to replace the main bearings.
Then lockdown(corona) happened, so at this stage I'm unable to buy the parts i need to fix her.
Hopefully that might change from next week onwards.

So quick question, is there any place where I can start like a build/project thread for my Berg?

Hello and welcome to UHE - Unoffical Husaberg Enthusiasts.

start another thread like you did this one or just carry on here?

I carry a large inventory of spares for them.

regards

Thanks Taffy.
Its great to know you have spares, importing is just frowned upon at this stage, but as soon as thing returns to normal, I'll chat to you.

two things to check. get someone who can do it really well to check the crank for "true" to less than .002" waving. they'll know what I mean. roller bearings are NOT ball bearings and "any old thing" wwill not do.

secondly, when putting it back together you need 0.55mm of axial float (left to right) and I'd be going for 0.7mm or something like that?

bassically, no shims on the assembly. none at all. rod needs .018" clearance. flywheels should be 60.00mm across the shoulders.

that has been running on its own shit.

Yea, it was real fun getting that inner race off.
What bearings would you suggest?

well rollers obviously still. we sell three types although if you put 'main bearing' they are in a shocking state. we are trying to sort out a backlog of poor workmanship....the bitch will pay for it don't you worry! (LOL!!!!)

The cheapest are good....the Pro-x. they are made by SKF really.

cheers
