This needed a freaking bump anyway.

You never know when you need pre 09 Husaberg info.

I'm pretty sure mine is complete so its just a matter of $$$$$ send a few pieces out to be checked at engine shop. Replate on cylinder. Blast frame repaint. Reassemble

Still riding my '05 on a regular basis. Had an overheating issue. Turned out to be (I think) a rad cap. Put in a higher pressue one off a newer KTM, new coolant with water wetter. All better.

Since I've been riding more slower technical trails lately I dropped the CS sprocket one tooth and found some rad guards that are less obstructive. It's way happier at slower speeds now.

The original battery just crapped out. Not bad after 6 years of abuse. Put in a Shorai, man what a difference! Cranks over much faster. Still lovin my 650.

I'm trying to figure this out. My FX470e has been on the stand waiting for me to split the cases to check the piston. Is it really easier? Granted I'm doing it to also make the counterbalancer upgrade, but what is the advantage to this design? This will be the first time really tearing into this bike and it's making me long for a 2-stroke as I'm contemplating the thought of doing it.

BTW - I love this bike when it's running. It's got all of the upgrades done except the counterbalancer. Last time it was running it just quit though and now it has low compression. Leakdown test didn't really show much. I'm suspecting a valve.

Take that water wetter out of that bike, it will eat the Teflon in the water pump housing and tear your bearing seal apart.

Just run the Honda 50/50 coolant and a generic overflow bottle.
Add a fan if you don't have one and you'll be just fine.

my '96 fe501 . Was the most fun ever !!! Finally ran out of valve adjustment after a couple years. I bought it used and had no idea how many hours were on it. Bergs are badassed for sure. The headlight and taillight had been removed by the previous owner.

I was speaking of general maintenance and getting to things. Guess I should have been more specific. I've never had to go inside the engine on any of the XR650Rs I've owned or the FE650.

No problem. I was hoping I was missing something and you were going to help me regain my faith.

Alright guys I more than likely will be picking up a '98 FE600 e-start bike. It looks to be in decent shape however the electric start system needs help. From what the guy says it sounds like the drive gears are gaunched. No matter, I'll fix it.
What do I need to be aware of with this engine? Husaberg.org has lots of info for the '01-'08 bikes but not so much for the older bikes. Any tips or tricks with these?

Oh, this bike is Ca. plated.

Im no expert but it was something like up to 96 or 97 they had no internal oil pump to bring oil to the head so some complained taht they toasted heads too easy others say its fine as long as yo change oil as required. 97 or 98 they put an oil pump and filter to get oil to top end and the bikes were pretty much solid until they redid them in 01. I think stator failure is fairly common. Just post up on husaberg.org they a real friendly bunch of guys over there

Thanks kenny. I'm a member on husaberg.org and have searched but so far not much info on these years. I had an '05 FE650 when I started this thread (I finally sold it like an idiot) and there's tons of info for the '01-'08 bikes.
