McLeod,

Checked the continuity and turns out high beam side is no bueno. The outer housing twists oround the inner if that makes sense. I've never seen a bulb made this way. Anywho, my local KTM dealer has one on the shelf for $9.82 or Cycle Gear can order one for $2.95. I'll be without high beams for a few more days!

Thanks for the help.

Your switch seems to be functioning.

Yellow is the 12V source, White is your running light, Green is Low beam and Brown is high beam.

If your high beam indicator light is bright. there are two possible suspects. The first is the bulb could be broken if you have a multi meter just measure the resistance across the bulb.
The second is the actual bulb socket check and make sure the bulb is making contact on both of the metal fingers touching the contacts on the back of the bulb. (just pull the bulb out and bend down into the bulb a little bit and put the bulb back in the socket)

If it is dim then it might be the switch.
I rebuilt my switch because I lost both the high and low beams by drilling out the rivets, stretching the spring and building up the contacts inside of the switch with solder.

You might want to make a power jumper so you cant test the lights with out the engine on.
I used a male spade lug and a alligator clip to jumper the from the battery to Fuse #3. (If I remember right I removed the fuse and plugged the spade lug into the side closest to the battery)

thoughts?

been riding ktm's for several years,owned most sizes they make. currentlty on a tagged 06 450exc.

Its time to move it out, been thinking of a husaberg.. Today i found a good deal on a 2010 450fx. with a rekluse in it. Bike rides well, no obvious issues, but no tag(not an issue to get) , so i couldnt get it up to speed.

What is everyones thoughts on using the fx as a dual sport? How is the gearing going to be? Dont need to really haul ass on it, but would like to be able to do 65 without destroying it.
Also, never ridden a recluse, would it allow me to gear the bike up, and use the rekluse to make up for it?


thanks guys!

I've got a plated FX. I don't really ride it on the road, but the stock gearing is plenty fast. The problem, compared to a 450 EXC, is first gear is tall. The rekluse would help.

Yeah and no doubt if the prices keep going up, $11-12 large in the USA. I'll be happy with my $7500 FE390 for awhile I think.

I am 10lbs heavier and prefer the progressive springs. I put a 8.0 on and couldn't stand it. Went back to a PDS2. It's something like 7.6-9.5. It doesn't go all the way to the rated max as we don't have that much spring travel on our shocks.

saw a 390 listed on nedirtbikes the other day for 5000. i bought my 09 450 with rekluse, rad guards, hand guards from edelmans last year for 6500. used bergs seem to be quite reasonable.

I really wanted the 2011 390 for the tasty forks, love those dual-chamber forks offroad. May have to add a a stiffer spring to the rear shock since I'm 220 ready-to-ride and the compression ring is all the way down. May try the progressive spring Tahoeacr mentions.

Cyborg, I weigh same as you, maybe a little more depending on tools carried etc and have had my suspension worked by a shop here who races 390s.

Mine is a 2010 390.

Forks
.48 kg/mm fork springs
Revalve forks

Shock
P20 spring
Fit telescopic needle
Revalve shock


The telescopic needle changes the rear shock a fair bit and makes your other adjustments more useable/noticeable.

FYI.
