No problems getting parts so far....... I plan on a top end rebuild next month, that might be a problem. Dan at MotoXotica has been very good with what I need so far.

Great looking SM Idle!

I've used WW for years with no problems, only on bikes that had overheating issues, and I mix just a little bit with straight distilled water. (My bikes never get near freezing temps)

I actually think the rad cap cured my Berg from boiling over, but I covered a few bases. I have a complete electric fan set up for it, but don't think it will be needed, or removing the thermostat as recomended.

On my bikes that ran hot, KTM 520sx and a WR250 2 stroke with an Ohlins 360 big bore kit, 95% distilled water and 5% WW eliminated boiling over and the Yamaha actually ran super cool for many years with no issues.

New bike with Redline WW, pic of the Teflon just being eaten away.




I replaced the bearing with Orangebergs kit to prevent the classic weep hole leak, it never gave me a problem. Not sure where to find this kit now but certainly a must mod.

I wonder if theres a KTM part cross over.Like a 400 RFS,,,famus water pump problems.
Thumper racing will have a good water pump rebuild kit,,,,for a KTM.

no worries Bruce!

FWIW my pump cover looks like that too, paint started coming off at about 100 hours, I don't use water wetter

I broke my orangeberg water pump seal kit im good at testing stuff

the first ones had a very small bearing (1.2KN rating) to replace an 8.2KN one

John has updated the kit to a bigger bearing, he's great to do business with and a tops aussie stand up Bloke, was already working on a bigger bearing when I let him know mine broke.

for contact details see last post here http://husaberg.org/forum/viewtopic....12518&start=30

I don't think there is any cause for concern if you have the small bearing kit, Im really really hard on my bike.

the kit is for the oil side, the best seal for the water side is from a ktm65sx its a wee blue trinket, very nice and soft. the oem seal has a steel outer.

KTM 65 water seal #PN is 46035056100 SHAFT SEAL RING 10X18X4 or you can use a 10x18x6 from a bearing shop its a tight fit but it moves the seal lip along the shaft a bit.

I put a shim under the impeller cir clip and made a new pin out of a drill to tighten up the impeller

ive also tapped the weep hole with a 3mm thread and take some 3mm screws for long rides. if one seal fails (happened once) I can plug the hole.

also just FWIW I've never had my bike overheat and sometimes I ride in 40 degree + (celcious) heat. the only time Im concerned about it is going slow 1st 2cnd gear etc so i make sure the pilot and idle are a tad rich. a bit of extra fuel is lighter than a fan and a battery

KTM 625 and 640 are right side drive, maybe the bolt holes line up.(for the rear guard)
Here's mine. I robbed it from my FE550. I needed a full guard in back to keep the chain off the tire. It doesent have a # or a name on it, so can't help you there.
The chain slider is a Husaberg part. I got one from Motoxotica a couplefew months ago.

The chain guide looks like a 07-up KTM.

If i can get 5 minutes i'll pull the TM designs off my XCW and see if it lines up.I'm more worry'd bout the chain slide,,,its beat bad,and has to be replaced.Front sproket will touch the swing arm on a good bump.
PO had the sdjuster blocks in backwards with a new chain,and had maybe half inch of play in the chain.Luckly it didn't pop and output shaft.

awm

why dont you ask these guys why you cant get fliud to go through your clutch line? Does it have to be pushed from bottom or pulled down thru top? There has to be a trick.I seemed like it worked fine till it ran out of fluid now it does not want to refill.

Fill it from the bleeder on the slave cylinder with a syringe and a short section of hose. I have a couple of LARGE hypodermic needles that I got from the local Agway that I removed the sharp tips from. They work well for that.

And AWM, I'll take responsibility for the chain being too tight. The chain slide was like that when I bought it, probably thanks to the 15-tooth front sprocket that was on it then.
