Rensho: (15T slides right on and works with the stock slave guard. It is tight, but all is well)

Ignoring Doctor's orders I took the Husa for an epic 25 mile pavement ride yesterday, it felt real good to be back in the saddle and of course I chose to ride the Mighty Husaberg for the first ride after the crash.

Rensho: (That's awesome. It seems like it's been forever)

During the down time I traded my lowered suspension for identical but stock suspension, spent some time getting the preload just right I am very happy with the new feel.

Rensho: (That stock sus is hella tall. I dropped mine 40mm since the DV noob ride. Love the extra confidence now. I'm a noob, so I need all the help I can get.)

Soon my precious... 2 months until we can get back in the dirt to really see how it feels.

^ Hey glad to see that you charged up the battery just a bit. You need to take a nice mellow ride to my house sometime, away from all traffic!

Hey Finn, 15 t c/s will fit but the cover will not go over w/o mods if at all.. You will love 15 /45 on the hiway ,cruise @ 70- 80 mph it loafs along barely working.. i ended up going back to 13/ 50 because for my usage the gap between 1st & 2nd was too wide. That said the trails are 10 mins from my house & I run full MX tires so I dont see much hiway.

Thanks for the info and kind words fellows!
looking forward to visiting your ranch Humanbeingexpert, soon I'll be more comfortable with going on such a (30 mile each way) long ride.

One of these days I'll have to try out the 15/48 combo to see how I like it, I'd imagine it should be very close to my 14/45 setup that I like, but possibly with less chain wear.




BTW, what's better than a Husaberg?




3 Husabergs!



Humanbeingexpert stopped by with another husa riding recently to shoot the shit... really hoping to get a SM setup for mine someday. Go Husaberg!

That supermoto set up sure looks like fun! Might get myself in trouble with that though.

Tried the 13/47 out yesterday and really enjoyed it in the woods. Tried a 4 diamond trail for the first time on the Berg and it was a lot easy then when I tried it on my Honda 450. Got cocky and confused myself with Graham Jarvis and tried a 5 diamond. Actually made it through everything but getting over the logs, roots and rocks really wore me out. Bike did great. Fan stayed on but the bike never flamed out and the clutch was easy to manipulate over the technical stuff. Gonna go back and try it again when I get the trails tire and it is not the end of the day and I am wore out.

Did have a couple of issues though. Put on higher risers and fueled up with some older fuel. Took it down the street and it popped and bogged out. Warmed up and stopped. Went riding and it did it again a couple of times but stopped after it warmed up. Always restarted easily. Still feels kinda weak right off throttle but pulls strong after that. Maybe bad fuel or something in the stretched wiring for the dash causing a short? Thinking the gas?

Also the bike feels like it has an increased amount of engine braking/drag. Very on/off feeling thru the flowing singletrack. Hard to coast and makes the bike jerky feeling. Seems like when I pull in the clutch it goes away. It did this the whole day. Any thoughts?

And finally, order higher risers and the anti vibe inserts from Highway Dirtbikes. When the package arrived I realized that I ordered the wrong risers. Sent an email to HDB and Derek called within an hour. He got me set on the right part and rush shipped it to me and just asked to send me the others back when I could. No extra charge! This was last Thursday evening, got the part a day and half later Saturday morning. Awesome service! The inserts took 60-70% of the handlebar vibration away!

Video of the trails at Highland Park Resort in Cedartown, Georgia. If in the area give this place a shot. Lots of good trails. *Not my videos.

First 4 diamond trail that got me cocky.

http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=XB53K...%3DXB53KxNtjHY

This is an older video of the 5D that wore me out. The trail is much more rutted out, deeper roots, and crazier rocks now. This video makes it look a lot easier than it is. That rider is also a lot better than me! He did it in a tenth of the time it took me. Trail needs some maintenance. Still feel pretty proud for making by myself.

guess I get that in a way. one could always visit a local panel beater (or is that Australia only?) to have a dollop of al-you-min-ee-um put on the end. file, sand and polish to suit of course.

Just a heads up for everyone. Cyclebuy had three 2nd gen 70 degree sub frame tanks in stock this morning.

Just saw these come across the local Craigslist...
  1. 2010 FE450 ($6,000). The ad claims it's street legal (in all-caps no less, so it MUST be true!). I don't believe it. The 450 was never sold as a street legal CA bike, and no amount of lying to the DMV will make it different. The 2010+ FE570 and FS570 were the only California street legal 70 degree bikes (as I recall). There are stories floating around of people who got dirt bikes plated having their plates yanked back by the DMV.
  2. 2009 FE450 ($4250). Pretty close to stock, but does include a Scotts damper.

Good news for all 70 Berg owners - apparently CycleBuy has partnered up with Promoto Billet to finally produce a stronger billet aluminum kickstand to replace the carry stocker on our bikes!

Should be out in a month or so.

I got a Berg!

Well I'm now the happy owner of an 09 FE570, took it for a quick lap around the paddock and I'm impressed. Now here's the but.....

The headlight and taillight doesn't work (brake light works) and I have 2 spare wires behind the headlight that I'd like to know what they're for. Ok, 1 of the wires is yellow with a blue stripe and appears to have 12 volts on it when the bike is running, this wire runs back toward the rear of the bike. Wire has no plug on the end and looks like it was either cut or just pulled out of a connector.

The other wire is brown with a black stripe and runs to the rear of the plug that I presume is for the indicator switch block (currently don't have the indicator switch block as the previous owner removed the indicators, switch block and flasher relay).

Now for the headlight questions. On the switch block which wire does what? Pretty sure the green wire and blue wire are for the high and low beam and the white wire is for the park light. The yellow and black wire and yellow wire seem to have 12 volts. Is this correct so far? Which wire is meant to supply power for the headlight? Is one AC for the headlight and one DC for the horn? Is the red wire the horn and the brown wire earth/ground?

Any help would be great.

The bike is an Australian ADR bike as well.
