Hello SMJ'ers, I have been seriously considering a burg 05-06 burg fs650c for my next bike. I have read that these bikes are reliable but require the proper maintenance in order to do so. I have no problem keeping up with oil changes, filters, valves, the basic stuff. What makes me question buying the bike is the required main bearing services. I am comfortable working on my bikes, and am mechanically inclined but have no experience Building/ servicing motors. With a service manual do you think this is out of reach for the average guy or pretty do able with the right tools and instruction. thanks

It's HusabErg not burg.

I broke a valve spring at 260 hours. I installed dual valve springs a timing chain and new cam follower bearings. (they roll on the cam lobes, for rocker arms).

It's now at 320 hours 10,400 miles. Motorex every 10 hours untill 200 hours. Rotella T ever since. Every 5-8 hours and filter every third oil change. Valve inspection/ adjust every 40 hours. Can't tell if it's lost any power but want to rebuild it soon.

I'm not racing it, but I definitely ride it like I stole it.

HUSABERG. Try not to offend those that have or did own one. You might be suprised at the answers you get.
