hi steve

factory race engines for the husaberg are available from mattinghofen as well. you have to have the cash of course. best you go into BERGOROADRACERS gallery and you'll get a feel for what you can have. takis is a valued customer to husaberg and is happy to pay for the best there is. he has the keys to the door!

now as for this LC4, i believe that at the end of the day there CAN't be that much difference between these bikes. so they should end up running about the same. but we run a 35mm big end (from '05 on) and they run a 40. they have a larger crank journal on the 640s but not the 560s (i believe).

the husey is a far lighter engine though. there is also so much you can do to them.

it's soon clear how well you all get on out ther, the difference between it and say stock cars is that there isn't an attempt to MAKE the racing more entertaining as a spectacle. a stock car driver knows he's the best but he might not win for a month! he is out every saturday evening and sunday afternoon entertaining the public and making the racing exciting.

you can go weeks without winning but in general you'll win 1 in 3 or so if you're the best. it's a case of the best 'giving away' to gain back later with better crowds and thus revenue etc etc. with 300-600 spectators there sunday there is no way you should not be getting what's called 'start money'.

regards

another one on the cross country outfit 650 (custom frame - really chop shop job) this bike was fast and fun for enduroing, ralph and i used to do some crazy night runs on this when we were young(er) we'd do 40 odd km loops leaving home at midnight and getting back in the early morn, fullypumped, sometimes it was hard to sleep afterwards.

well last weekend stuart brown got a 6th and a 7th in a GP event on a standard outfit.
it has a standard 650 engine which i think bodes well for the future.

my inside information tells me that the ben ballard engine snapped a rod in the second
lap of practice. so something was seriously wrong there. this engine went the week
before this report started as i understand it.

Hello

Here some pictures from our AYR-Husaberg. An oil cooler was added later. But it's fun and building "the thing" keeps you from the street! For Taffy here the answer at your question in the post of the 700CC kit.

Greetings,
Stephan

i noted the other day that you had a sidecar stephan, looks veray nice and not a hint of swede anywhere in the colour scheme!

why a 550?

you know you could still turn that into a 650? with a bit of evil work!

anyway, i'm sure we've had a rising rate rear shock before but that must be a first on a sidecar.
