    cylinder wall scratch

    nope not freshly honed, this is after 1400 miles thanks
  5. so I noticed there are small vertical scratches inside my cylinder wall today. They are not really scratches in the sense that I can't even feel them with my fingernail. Just wondering if this is worth taking to a shop to get fixed again, cant even feel with fingernail so they must be very minor
  6. yeah thats what I was thinking, I'm just concerned about reusing the metal head gasket. From what i've read it seems like it's not a good idea to do so. Looks like if I want to replace the gasket I will have to pull the engine
  7. so can someone tell me if the head can come off with the engine on the frame
  8. Thanks for all the replies/advice. I tried to vacuum/air blast but had no luck. I think its wedged inside there pretty good. Man I feel stupid after this lol. I am looking at the husky service manual for reference as I am pretty sure i'll need to dissemble the top end. I've never done this before, so it would be my first time. Is it possible for me to get to the cylinder head by just removing the cam chain + 13mm & 8mm bolts on the outer case? Will I need to remove the camshafts etc? Actually from looking at the manual it looks like there may be 4 10mm screws below the camshafts for the cylinder head bolts, so it looks like yes. Has anyone done this with the engine mounted on the bike? I'm worried about room, especially when reassembling to get proper torque settings, not sure how im gonna fit a torque wrench in these tight spaces. Also is it crucial to use a new gasket if I do disassemble? What about the exact loctite compounds listed in the service manual? thanks
  9. Alright well, being an idiot and in a rush trying to check valves on my husky 510 about a 3 inch probe fell into the cylinder. I was trying to check TDC through sparkplug hole, only thing I had was a multimeter probe and the wire broke off while spinning the rear tire. The probe itself is coated and rubber and is flexible, no where in site when I look through the sparkplug opening. Im thinking its bent around in there somehow. Just wondering how big of deal it is to remove the cylinder head, and if it is even possible with the engine mounted on the bike. Anyone have some advice to get this out?

    Hi I thought I remember husky having a low seat as an accessory but I cannot find it online anywhere. Where can I find a list of husqvarna factory bike accessories? Does anyone know if husky does indeed make a low seat? I found the step up seat but its not what im after thanks

    2009 Husaberg FE450 ???

    anyone know if it is still possible to make a bike labeled "off road" on the MSO street legal in the states or is it not even worth it? thanks

    2009 Husaberg FE450 ???

    I am looking at the exact same bikes as the original poster. Does anyone know what the new husabergs MSO is listed as "offroad vehicle" or "motorcycle"? I would need to street legalize one if I bought. Husky seems alright, but no wide tran So KTM 450 EXC vs Husaberg 450FE. I am thinking the husaberg may be more maintenance but could be wrong. BTW would be riding 50/50 road dirt any thoughts
