well seeing as the weather has been so crap in the uk over winter i decided to strip my berg down and give it a full nut and bolt rebuild, whilst the engine was out the frame it was ported, race cam fitted, dual valve springs and a complete rebuild, i also sent the coil/cdi off to have the dual ignition curves remapped.
anway thought i would share a few pics as i am putting it back together:


frame back from painters (gloss black with a 200 micron holographic metalflake on top with 8 coats of laquer to finish it off) engine and swing arm back in.


yokes, forks and bars back on


exhaust back on, keihin fcr41 carb refitted



few bits of wiring done (loom is a right mess), various other bits back on


exhaust wrap done (nightmare job getting it neat)


few more little jobs done,trial tech vapor on, seat re covered, new brush guards and bar end crash mushrooms.


thats about as far as i have got at the min, just waiting for the rear shock back from being serviced and my new beringer front disc so i can get the wheels back on. blue silicon hoses ordered and all new plastics and graphics on their way from race-styles in germany.
will keep adding pics as the rebuild goes on :D

yeah the bike had the standard dellorto on it when i got it but i got offered the fcr fairly cheap and once i got it jetted properly the difference was unbelievable, only problem is the fcr ive got doesnt have a choke so i have modified the accelerator pump linkage so it can be used manually as a primer (much like a lawn mower or chainsaw) so from cold just give it 4 squirts with the throttle open, close the throttle then press the starter and she fires straight up.

been making a new wiring loom from scratch for the last 4 days the old 1 was such a state it was easier to bin it and start again, anyway got my under seat battery box finished (chopped up an underseat fuel tank) and now im running a much bigger battery to help with starting. it was getting dark by the time i had finished but took a quick pic

even with a bigger battery (7amp is bob on) you will kill starter spraggs if you keep trying to fire it from cold. It was never intended as an electric start always a 'restarter'. The button should only ever be used when the motor is warm

the engine has had £1600 worth of work carried out by taffmeisters husaberg specialist here in the uk (i cannot recommend this guy enough, what he doesnt know about bergs isnt worth knowing) and it starts 1st touch of the starter every time without fail, everything has been changed to 05 stuff (sprauge, auto decomp etc) plus it has a starter off an r6. david at taffmeisters is that confident in his work that he completely does away with the manual and kickstart decomp system cos it simply isnt needed once he has worked his magic

Mate, it's your money but personally i think Taffmeister should be renamed taffsheister. Thats my opinion & I wouldn't let him within 20 feet of a Berg I owned.
Then again, I'm lucky, I live 2 mins away from DCR and 20 mins away from SMR. I was racing Bergs when Taff was still experimenting with his own 2001 P.O.S

fair point mate, everyone has there own opinions and experiences i have heard mixed reports about DCR, it just happens that taffy is not that far from me and ive had no bad experience personally with his work. you sound like you are into your bergs, what are you running at the min?

cool pic and loving the project, looks like a hell of a lot of hard work has gone into that compared to my simple strip down and rebuild
