Hang in there, someone will be along shortly to help you on the .org site..
The owners doc is prolly being remodeled.

Would probably help if you could list what the jets are in your carb and your elevation. Not that I'd know what they mean..

Also I assume you've inspected the rubber boot between carb and the head for cracks.

Fresh fuel 91 octane from Chevron or the like..

An air filter that's lightly oiled.

Good plug that's gapped properly.

Hope you gets it going soon.





You have a good spark.

You have the valves adjusted to spec.

Bumping up this thread. I picked up another 01 that I found locally. It's an fc550. On closer inspection it has a 03 fe650e motor. It was in sm trim when I got it. Looked like hell with a painted tank, ratty plastics and an uncovered seat. I stripped all that stuff off and put on a set of spare wheels, some spare plastics, seat etc and here she is. Coolest part for me is the s/n is 00001 :)

Yeah, I know. There is no front brake in the photo. It is for sale with the sm stuff. It had the Ktm 4 pot caliper and big rotor. I found a stock unit on ebay that is on its way.

Nice score and nice job! Pleasant surprise getting a 650 engine, eh? Excellent!

Just cracked 400 hours on my 05' FS650E (AUS model)

Lots of dirt roads, some woods riding, but mostly tarmac. 125-225 mile dayrides from 400' to 6,000' riding in the Sierra Nevada canyons.

Fwiw, I have used Rotella T @ 5-10 hours and the TPS has been disconnected since 130 hours.

It's still making decent power but I am encountering the throttle stop more often.

2007 FE550 RH petcock gasket search

I'm trying to find a souce to purchase the gasket inside of the right hand fuel tank petcock on my 2007 Husaberg FE550.

The complete petcock is listed as: "50307005000 GAS COCK MIKUNI ON/OFF | 2001".

The petcock also fits some KTM's, it is a good, current part number.

The petcock is available for $60.00; I'd much rather replace the gasket though. I $@!@@*&^^%^$%& hate the throw it away mentality. Nothing wrong with the hard parts, this petcock is fully serviceable if I can just locate a replacement gasket.

So, I'm trying to find a souce for the gasket. KTM parts fiche on the web do not give a breakdown for the 50307005000 part number. Sudco does not list it either. It is not a plain o-ring, it's a circular rubber gasket with holes at 12/3/6/9 O'clock, to correspond with the petcock ports.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Screwing around on eBay and I came across This tank.

I recon it is for an early Husaberg, anyone have any idea what it is from?

I am not interested in getting it, nor do I have any connection to the seller, I was just curious.

Yep, 19 l Acerbis for a 1999 or older Berg, maybe to 1996, maybe earlier, not sure. Definitely fits my 1998 as I have one. Anyone wanna buy mine?

Lol @ the shipping...

It must be packaged with cashmere socks or dollar bills instead of bubble wrap.

Thanks for the heads up Trev.

Yeah shipping to here is $333.98...

Tank is cheap but postage is the killer.

Bought this '96 FC 600 a few years ago. Was advertised as having a good engine and that's what I bought it for. I was looking for a good FC 600 engine to use in another bike until I got around to rebuilding the spare I have. Turned out to have a bad rod...just like the spare engine.

Here's the bike:



Crank disassembly - The rod pin is thrashed but the rod actually looked pretty good...maybe even usable.



You can't get new rods for these engines any longer so what's a guy to do? Yep, adapt something close. Here I'm comparing the stock Husaberg rod to a KTM 525 rod.



The KTM rod is wider at the ends and, if you look closely, you can see where I machined a little off the big end of the KTM rod for crank case clearance.



Here's a closeup of the machined down big end. Hopefully it'll hold up...



KTM rod pin on the left is larger diameter and longer. I shortened the length.



I chucked up the crank in the lathe and opened up the rod pin hole to fit the bigger KTM pin.



It was slow going. Action shot.



I also had to machine some clearances in the crank halfs for the wider KTM rod. Had a buddy do this on a CNC mill.



Here it is together with a KTM 525 piston that was given to me with only a few hours on it. Luckily the Husaberg and KTM head geometry is so similar that the valve reliefs match up.



Almost done...



And it runs!



The above is actually a video but I can't figure out how to link the video...not that it proves anything since it just shows a bike sitting there idling (and leaking fuel and coolant). The leaks have since been fixed and the ignition cover installed. Took it for a spin a few weeks ago and it actually runs pretty well. It's down on compression because the KTM rod and piston combo end up with .5mm (.020") too much quench gap.

Now I'm just marveling at the lengths I just went to in order to get a $400 motorcycle running! I must be nuts!

awesome Thorgan

probably not something that worries you but if you can get hold of a regina cam chain you could probably deck the "block" to get some of that 0.5mm back...

their effective length is the shortest, DID is longest and IWIS is in the middle, difference between IWIS and DID on my 650s amounts to 0.6-0.7mm between top and bottom sprockets for the same tension.

not sure exactly how much the Regina is shorter by but they were short enough not to fit at all on some bikes.

really looking forward to some pics of your next build

Outstanding, yellowbronco!
The more time marches on, the more parts are becoming extinct for these bikes. It's good to know there's an alternative for the con rod if one wants to spend the time to do it up.

Bushmechanic--Thanks for that tidbit regarding the camchains.

I've always got my eye out for a cheap 2000 FE600.

Yeah, I was looking for one of those Regina cam chains. Couldn't find a source so I just went with what Taffy had.

The next engine will likely have a custom rod and won't need anything special cam chain wise.

brucifer, this all started for me when I bought a 2000 FX600E back in '04. That was an amazing bike but I got in a head-on collision with it and bent the frame. That's when I started researching Husabergs. Before then I thought they were just glorified playbikes. Boy, was I wrong! I've been keeping my eyes peeled for a 2000 FC600 much like you for the FE. However, I like the close ratio transmission and I've found that these bikes start really easily if you've got a healthy stator in them and a properly jetted FCR carb so no need for the electric boot. I also found my 2000 FX to be somewhat heavy in the front end due to the starter and counterbalancer.

Maybe I'll just build myself the perfect bike some day. Find a set of 2000 FC engine cases to get the hydraulic clutch. Build up the engine with an FC 600 crank and transmission and then stuff the engine in a '04 up frame which I feel handles ever so slightly better than the old '00 to '03 frames due to the steering head geometry. That'd be super light and VERY fast!

Incidentally, I'm currently reading the latest Dirt Rider magazine and they've got Doug Henry as the guest editor. As the story goes, when he knew he was going to be racing the Yamaha four stroke in the '97 season, he "secretly" went out and bought a Husaberg 501 practice bike. Now I know how good that choice was.
