I think the triple trees are different , the frame has extra gusseting also
2006 frame part #: 5910632-001
2007 frame part #: 5910632-001

2006 top triple clamp part #: 5910027-001
2007 top triple clamp part #: 5910027-001

2006 bottom triple clamp part #: 5910022-001
2007 bottom triple clamp part #: 5910022-001

The 2006 and 2007 frame and triple clamps are identical.

Difference info

Hey Guys

I have been on the phone with many dealers and heard various things.
I have also been in direct contact with Husaberg.Waiting for them to get back with me..
I found this info at www.motoxotica.com. I am not affiliated with them but the info is something that I think this thread could use....
Lots of BS out there.
I will keep digging and hope some others take some time to Chime in.
Husaberg's website is not so helpful with past models that I can find.

You can get all the part #s from bikebandit.com up to 2007. You won't find many that are different between the last few years...

You can also get much of the info on Husabergs website.
You can also download the repair manual from them.
Takes a while to read the thing and find the differences but I figure while I am searching for a bike I should do my home work.
Mom always said I was a pretty fart smeller.

The 05 thru 08 models are very much basically the same bike with the exceptions being those listed in a previous post.

I think you can be comfortable buying any 05 or newer model and be very happy with the results.

If needed maybe update the older counter-balancer with a newer one but that's about it.

Thanks for the info.
A search for "husaberg counter-balancer issues" only turned up your post when your engine went boom. 7000 miles on a race engine before any issues is very impressive though.

From what I was able to find the " counter-balancer " does occasionally let go but it's not all that common.

thanks

The newer ones have the upgraded bearing on the counter balancer.They went to needle bearings I was told.
So it must be true.

Zootscootz,don't let the potential mainbearing issues put you off buying a Berg. The black one you were considering buying on this site is the business especially after you factor in price of the Akro on that bike. If I were living in the States I would buy that bike no questions asked.
