Crack in engine mount -09 570

Found this on a friends 570 from -09, it is the right top engine mount. Take a look at yours when you have your eyes in that area.

Had that when I bought it, swing arm bearings gone
Fit new bearings, rather a new swingarm and the mount and its been good since.

I spoke to a guy Who has been at the factory learning about husaberg directly from the factory team.
And they allways remove the front mounts, so it wont hold the cylinder. This way they stayed clear of cracks etc.
Got em removed on mine and alot of driving buddies to.
Had em on my 11. Was Never a problem.
Do you all still have em mounted?

No, removed the front since long time as they are inofficially a mistake. This is the top rear right.

Thats the upper engine mount and not the portion holding on to the head, the one to the head you remove yes. You jon know.
Make sure the swing arm bolt is nice and secure as mine werent when I bought it, mounted the wrong way so obviously not seated or torqued, or anything, and this bit cracked in half.

So you mean the swing might be the reason..? Or do I misunderstand you? If not can you explain how please?
Is the force transfered through the engine if the swing bearings are bad? I can understand if it is mounted the wrong way as on yours as it will probably put some twist on the engine, but if it is only the bearings that are bad it should just end up in a stiffer suspension, no?

Bearings were completely mashed and the axle was deformed, so it had a bit of play...Im just guessing that it may have an impact, not put a lot of thought to it. Just grab the swingarm and see if it has play.

Yes then I can see it happen. No this swing is all right. But the bike is a -09, actually the first 570 in Sweden (Gross owns it), so I think it's just bad luck and fatigue.

Right, perhaps this part on the 09's were weak, as I have an 09 too.
