Just to be sure, youre talking about part # 22, right?

You going to face 2 challenges but you will not regret doing this conversion!

1. Brake disk on this wheel is odd size. There is nothing out there from any other bike that will be possible to bolt on to get to DR 300mm disk (if SR43). Using Husaberg brakes in front will result in stopping power enough for bike of half DR weight, no more. You will need custom made disk if you going to use this wheel. But DR SR43 wheel only need different bearings pressed in and couple of spacers to fit into those forks.
2. Head bearings. I suggest you use drawing I posted while ago in this tread. It means head axle must be pressed in from the top and fixed by 12.9 grade bolt from underneath. My setup worked fine for I guess about 30-40 000 km.
Sometimes people bore out hole in lower yoke to make stock axle work, but I am against it as lower yoke get considerable load and it;s made of aluminium alloy.Just my 2 cents.

You also will need heavier springs and limit travel to 250 mm (SR43) and may be not for SR41 - can't tell. Limiting travel will require machining cartridge etc. Best bet - send it to Stefan.
yes - or ask him with your special parts :-)

Cowboy XJ, have you got a sr/43 motor or has the lefthand side case and starter gears been replaced with the 43 ones.
Looking foward to seeing your bike rebuild, we all love pic,s you know .

lihter rear wheel

There's been some talk about lighter (KTM) cush drive wheels that may fit the big with some spacers needed - has anyone here actually fitted another rear wheel and has some closer information about what's needed?


some pics too, but no sun and sand and nice things like you blokes in dry countries - all mud and shit nordic style ;)

This is how it's always looking - no getting away from it:



Moto-orienteering some weeks ago, Mait's already been talking about the series earlier:

Exiting a creek:


fiddling with wet paperwork while collecting a point:


Declaration on me back highly visible: ;)


A local lady checking out the route on Mait's bike:



And another ride some days ago:

Just realized that we're blocked off by a river after an hour of hard work through swampy forest to achieve what was supposed to be a shortcut. This is the moment of silence and despair before hoing all the way back:


A sunken xt on our way back:


Finally out, shirt changed, ready to rock on...


to the best riding roads...


in the world.



cheers, juss

You're bloody right - in just 4000Km chain and rear sprocket are quite worn and front sprocket's been totally destroyed by the last 500km. Just replaced the front one now - it's of course gonna fade fast but it's gonna give me the few rides on the wet and muddy weeks before winter - then a new set is going in.

**

I'll probably use DR stock wheel on the berg fork.
good ideas (read: drawings) appreciated of the bracket to fit the stock SR43 caliper on WP extreme - anyone? I just got my hands on the fork two days ago and soon going to make the stem (thanks bluesman for the drawing!), but no time to sit in the freezing shed fitting and measuring stuff these days...




cheers, juss

Ok... but to check if I have it - I must first remove the camshaft, and to do that - unhook the camchain. Now I must say I have done this on my husaberg, but there isn't that much confidence in me with regards to the Big with all these balancers :/ Can you guys fill me with confidence? or beer?

Here are a couple of better quality pics of how the camshaft looks like:
I've marked the spots that look suspicious to me, they are something like dents on the camshaft. Is that normal?

The roker (this time the overheating colour is true) and its wear:

oops


And for dessert - a couple of big sized gifs (sorry for the size - not sure how advrider will take these):


To me, looking at the rotating surface and feeling with the finger the surface didnt feel damaged, I couldn't even feel the dents properly (or maybe it was the beer). So, should i change it or will this one last for 100kkm at least? :)

If you can - avoid using stock caliper. It just ... let me put it softly - inefficient. You won't notice until you quickly swap for something with proper brakes. Then you realize how bad it is. My first encounter was using both brakes and sweating as rear of nice new Audi in front of me came closer and closer - he decided to brake and I was behind...
If you have original Brembo that comes with those forks - use that one. It will also be way easier to make adapter.
If you do not have that Brembo - try to get this one or one like that
