Question for Safariberg

I'm looking at a 2005 FE 650, were they as reliable as the 07's and newer?
Thanks,
E

no, not generally, there were crank end float and main bearing issues, not all but enough to make it a bit of a lottery

'07 & '08 are the go no issues at all, but a good condition low km '06 would also be fine

Top stuff, guys (and gal). I'm awed by the professionalism of the effort you've organized, Garry.

I assume you're referring to only the 650. I have an '05 FE450 that has been as reliable as a hammer. However, when I decided to find a 650 to dual sport, I definitely wanted an '07-'08.

Rally Jetting for a 650

Hello Safariberg or anybody else,

I would appriciate if you could give me some tipps if I should change anything in regards to the jetting I will participate in the Tuareg rally 2010 on a 07 650 Husa

The engine will be stock but I might fitt a Acra system

I found this great thread today and have spent halv the day reading the same.

Any idea when those prototype Aqualine 450/570 tanks might go main stream? I checked their website but did not see any hints.

Hi Seth,

Thank you for your enquiry, yes the tanks you have seen for the husaberg will be available shortly, there is a front tank that is 7.6L and a rear tank that is 10L they fit on with the original tank and you can fit one or the other or both. All of the fitting are being finalized at the moment feel free to contact me in a few weeks or keep an eye on our website for updates.

Regards,
Nicole
