Julien - New owner - Husaberg 400 FE 1997

Hello dear community.

My name is Julien, I’m from France and I’m 34 year old.
I lately bought a Husaberg 400FE from 1997 and I’m trying to fix it.
I came here in order to find some advise or information regarding my new sexy bike





The engine been rebuilt in 2012 (nickasil), new piston in 2014. The bike has been used for 20hours until a screw from the valve lifter fall into the lower part of the engine. The Crank shaft been folded by the blocked gear. To resolve that, the former owner replaced the bottom of the engine but the engine has never start since he made it.
Here I’m with all that stuff and I il try to recover this engine

Sexy bike naked :
(Cleaning of the carburetor, set up of the valves, unblock of the gearbox : I totally don’t know why I wasn’t able to change gear)









I have heard that the ignition may be setup on this bike? Do you have any advise to how to proceed please ? Also I m looking for the tool to remove the ignition disk. (If you have the reference please ? )
Thanks from steve and Goose916

hello

welcome to UHE!

I have a video of ignition timing in my Taffmeisters video pages.

you need a 1989-1998 flywheel puller - i sell them.

it probably won't change gear because the selector plate is binding. look at the moving plate on the statric plate. look for "blunt smashed nose" like a boxer.

cheers

Thank you Taffy ! Yea, I already took a look to your shop before to log on this forum
I confirm you that there are some parts that Iím interested in !
Regarding the gear selection bloked.. you reached my limit of understanding of English... to much specifics words For me
What I understand, is that I have to unmount the clutch to take a look if selector plate is smashed or not ?

statric = selector plate. a typo mistake.

yes, remove the clutch and watch where the claw smashes and gets wider. you can grind the edges of the plate but we also now (for only this June we got them) have new selector plates.

cheers

I confirm the moving plate wasn’t doing her job nicely.. I have the luck to have a spare engine with the bike, I compared with the other selector plate and it simply goes fine

Many thanks for the advice !

During the assembly of the clutch I notice a little part that appear to not be at its place. (Part 54 on the picture below) Can anyone confirm me of this part has to be inside the part 14 please ? (Between the part 50 and the part 14 )

Thanks from Goose916

Yes. That's what I've heard called the "clutch pill". It allows the clutch push rod (part number 50 which may not spin) to actuate the clutch lifter (part number 14 which may spin) and disengage the clutch (which does spin). It is also available in different thicknesses to account for differences in case width, clutch thickness, etc. It goes in the bottom of the deep hole in part number 14.

the clutch actuation arm on the other side of the engine needs to be at 90d to the rod to push correctly (like how a tennis player swings to hit the ball). sometimes two pills are needed when extras thick frictions are put in etc.
