Wish I had a project like that over xmas !
ill be watching this one!!!!!!
thanks for sharing.
Please post as many photos as you can.
Big Kev may be dead. But I'm excited. Good one mate - have fun building that baby up.
I like seeing an artist at work. Love the 'berg
Sub-frame extra fuel tank
The rear subframe on the new '09 Bergs is plastic, same material as the fuel tank and is a great potential extra fuel cell.
see here http://www.husaberg.org/index.php?na...r=asc&start=15
It has been tested now with no leaks from the fasteners etc, and has a 4 litre capacity, ~50% increase on standard, not bad.
Fuel is mainly to the left side, but given that it is carried low, should not be a problem with bike balance.
Wall thickness is approximately 3mm. This should be more than enough material for the vent fitting (plus sealing goo). Fitting the balance line, would be best to do similar to the fuel pump with a mounting plate/gasket goo and bolts.
With the standard 8.5L it will give 12.5L all up, that will be good enough for Condo and Yilgarn etc. all with the standard slim line body work :wings
Great stuff to be able to do that and use the stock body work.
I reckon some clever Swede had this at the back of their mind with the design...................why else ?? and given its the same material as the tank !! :clap :clap http://www.husaberg.org/modules/PNph...smiles/wav.gif
Plus it means that only about another 10 L needs to be found with the larger Safari tank for the long range rallyes :rayof
Bits to go on
NO frivalous bling bits here, no siree, just serious stuff mate ! :deal
Some bits already have and will go across from the '08 FE650 to the new one
So much bling, so little time.
Nice ride Gary. Congratulations mate. See you at Condo.
Read the write up on them - some innovative features - sub frame, straight inlet, mass centralsation etc. What a beautiful project - best of luck.
Hey SafariBerg - do they do "rider ability" in anodized blue as well?:lol3
Congrats Gary. Must be nice to have a factory funded ride and farkles. Will be watching your progress in the respective races, mate.
One person has a life but the rest of you are just internet nerds
I'm off to the pub (on my bike)
those new bergs are a very nice thing. Aqualine making a tank for them is a surprise.
the EFi will keep the fuel economy good, what are the oil capacity on them?
is it 6 spd wide ratio?
Lovely. You'll be trying extra hard not to rub it against too many roos I expect.
ok ok I repent :shog
Now that the new bike endorphin euphoria has subsided I will tread the righteous path and not be led into temptation of frivalous andodised blue bling :cry
Afterall it is supposed to be a serious rallye bike !
(besides which I just realised how expensive it all is :eek1 )
So will save the sheckels for the Safari costs instead :nod
With that aim in mind have amended the proposed bits list below on post #7
