Will let you know more once I do.
Yey good stuff mate! Let me know more details as they come - I plan to do some NZ south island rides and some of them are 200km plus off road - I dont want to strap on extra tanks - so am very keen!
Cheers

Great thread, SB.





Is that a fuel line strung taut across the right rear quarter? That'd make me more than a bit nervous!

Hi safariberg, can u tell me what modifications did u do to your husaberg?...like the tanks...did u asked them from factory?...are there?

Used a clarke tank at front, a nomad at rear top...and the side one?

Thanks for your help

Used a clarke tank at front, yes it holds 17L stock, I am going to try and blow it out another couple of litres, it should get close to 20L I reckon

a nomad at rear top..yes it holds 5.8L, I'm not going to use it this year, instead will use the Husaberg underseat sub-tank which holds 3L

.and the side one? The side one is a standard Husaberg Acerbis accessory, it holds 5.5L

Did u do anyother modifications besides add the navigation systems...i mean in the motor, none, it was totatly stock, just added the Akrapovic slip-on muffler and changed the jetting. I would keeep it stock for any rallye event. The main thing I did was run Motul 300V 15-50W double ester oil. This is really important and is a key to making it last.

suspensions?...yes went to .46 on the front springs and 92 on the rear spring and diallled it in re sags etc

Rally SoCal

Not on this forum (interestingly). There's a version of it at Thumpertalk, though. Not sure if it's been locked and/or deleted. I'll rummage around and see if I can find it.







(What does that have to do with Husaberg Rallye bikes, though?)

You know we NEVER tire of your pics, Bod.


Were you on your way South this year when things got canceled?

I spent three weeks in Gambia watching the birds fly by....

I had planned to catch the Senegal stages St Louis and Dakar, but miss Mauritania for a quieter time, I wasn't expecting things to be quite as quiet as they turned out!

I'm glad I was going alone this year( I often take people along) so there were no additional problems for travelers with nothing to do. I'm not so happy to be setting up XR400's to run from Janjanbureh into Senegal, (on-hold now).

I've seen the Bin Laden supporters in St Louis (stickers of his pic on scooter front) I also often stop at the side of the road in Mauri and have passed the place of the shooting many times. Once you pass a place called Boutillimit the scenery is terrible and so's the road. The people that live out there are great it is only the radical in-comers that have been turned against the west that change a Country unchanged for a thousand years.

I think South America is a good idea. In a few years it will/may return to Africa but over the last ten years the people have changed. There are too many radicals now.
I followed the news of the killers route South towards Guinea, these types are more prolific in West Africa than some might think. Keep on fighting them however you can...

Anyway I'm rambling, here is a Hornbill from Gambia. No shots from Dakar 2008 and it's not to be mistaken for a new model Husaberg either...

Hey, if you are in the Southeast you should know that James Embro (multiple Dakar competitor) is opening a new shop at 5666 Buford Hwy and Mitchell Road in Norcross, Georgia. Saturday Feb 23rd is the grand opening, with a number of real Dakar rally bikes for you to check out.

Did I mention he is a Husaberg dealer? The 08 models are nice machines for sure. Stop by and say howdy this Saturday if you are in the area.

Hope to see you there,
Tim

Wow this is a great thread and pictures! Awesome looking bikes.

I really like the lightweight setup of the Hussy's compared to the quite a bit larger rally bikes I've seen. I guess it's all about speed. The big bikes go faster in the flats, the smaller ones faster in the rough. Seems even Dakar is drifting towards only 450 class to reduce the crazy speeds across the open sections. That '09 Slant 450 and I guess perhaps a 565 will likely be very fast and a damn sexy looking design! Those would make a wild rally bike! Be interesting to see what the reliability will be like on the all-new design, given what the mfr's know today about reliability. I love all the trick new hardware coming out these days, after watching the evolution for 40 years or so.

I have a few questions for you. In one of your posts you stated that you were running for 3 days for changing the oil. Do have exapnded capacity? I think that stock is about a liter of oil. And how may hours do you think that you are putting on before an oil change? How may hours should the average trail rider run between changes? And what type of oil are you using?


Great thread. It's about time that someone did this.
is there an external oil cooler on the bike? if not you could ad one. The oil cooler will not only help keep the oil cool but it will increase the oil capacity of the bike slightly as the cooler and lines will hold that much more oil.
