2005 Husaberg FS 650 E go or no go?

Hello,

I just came across this Husaberg http://www.moto.it/usato/usato03.asp?EID=1793741 .
It is 2005 FS 650 E (not FE, 06 as it says) and only has 3000km. Can you guys give me some advice if I should go for it or not.

Thank you very much,
Urban

Thank you,

RE: Re: 2005 Husaberg FS 650 E go or no go?

I cant tell from the advert mate as i can only read english BUT i'd be making sure the oil changes were strictly followed and listening for any abnormal noises (knocking etc). Also if it has been serviced make sure he has receipts to back this up. I wouldnt worry about plastics too much, concentrate on whether the engine is in good condition !
Other than that my knowledge is fairly limited. I'd suggest using the search function at the top of the page and having a browse around this site for any issues people have mentioned. Also check 'Owners Doc' on the left hand side, there is some good info in there about common problems etc. hope this helps

My first thoughts are, not original tyres so would be suspicious as to the 3000km claim, or it has been ridden very hard to wear them both out in that distance.
I have an 05 and like it very much.
As with all Husabergs expect to have to spend money on it.

Cheers spanner

Are you kidding! my pirelli scorpion wore out in 800kays!

I am verry happy with my '05 model 550, and am buying another one for my Bro in-law, I only wish I had the 06-08 tank and shrouds, makes me jelous every time I see them.

Too many burnouts I would think!

Original tyres are Michelin Polits.

The back one should last around 3000km but the font should last a bit longer than that I would have thought.

Road use I am talking about.

Cheers,

Starter clutch (aka gear wheel torque limiter) replaced under warranty?

Counter-Balancer updated to post 06 design?

Other than those two parts items the 05 bikes are good kit.
