A bit more on my 650 from another thread on spoke nipples copied here,

I've been playing with wheels over the years, and so far feel is OK. How to explain what is the right feel is difficult, but if you get a newish wheel that is undamaged with no siezed spoke nipples then loosen a few nipples one at a time and tighten again by 1/2 turn to get the 'feel'

With my bikes when they are new at the first tyre change or so I remove every nipple and put anti sieze on the threads and under the nipple head so that I'll always be able to play with them in the years to come.

Although by removing one nipple at a time doesn't affect the truing too much it can still move around a bit. I always set up a pointer/dial gauge in the swingarm, or forks and check the rim centring and trueness before and can then get it back where it started afterwards.

Incidentally, when I did this with my new FE 650 I found that the front rim was 3 mm to the left of centre between the forks which explained the subtle drift to the left on smooth ground.

I trued it centre and now it goes nice and straight.

Hi Bergers,

I've finally got around to posting some pics, so you can visit my gallery for some bling. http://www.husaberg.org/index.php?set_a ... _album.php I cleaned her up to take to Suttos so the motor can be stripped and the oil leaks fixed. Sutto insisted that it be fixed after I emailed him photos of the evidence. I'll collect on Friday on the way through to Louee, so it better be ready.

The suspension is now sorted, 0.46 in the forks and 9.7 up back and revalved by Frank Pons at Biketek to suit my rocks.

25 hours and 1000 km so far of sheer bliss. Best bike I've ever ridden, love it.

I guess the bonus is that there will be a Husaberg dealer on site at Louee with mechanic and mobile workshop !!!!! Did we say that Bergs are very reliable now ???? Lol. It probably wont look to good with all these bikes being worked on over there, but we can just tell people that the bikes are factory test bikes being radically tuned for the next phase of world enduro domination !!!! Ha ha, how does that sound?

I'm with you cafey, but we had better get our story straight.

Funny thing is I was going to put up a post just before I leave here on thursday saying "see you all there, I'll be the one without a motor in my bike" but I'm not sure if anyone would find me now !!

It breathes !

Just got the word from ORANGEBERG & the FE550's heart is back together again ready for the transplant on Friday. It's going to be as long drive (14.5 hrs) waiting to go for a blat again.
