I actually just did this, but have not run much through the bike yet.

Wouldn't the partially clogged injectors affect normal running also ?

I did get the T63 in 120/80-18 and it looked way too skinny in that brand/model of tire so I sent it back.
Michelin T63 ?

Kenco solved a very similar issue to yours. It was a clearance problem with the decompressor.
Added to the list !

Correct me if I'm wrong, but you guys using this treatment bike's are sitting for days, or possibly weeks between use, yes? Bike is not sitting more than a couple of days
Is you main concern what the ethanol does while the bike is sitting, or for it just being there in general? Ethanol is poison...nothing good comes from it in our fuels except to keep some corn farmers employed...just kiddin. Long term effects on motors are amazing. Plenty of articles on it's effcts.
In other words, when I'm riding the bike day in and day out, should I be less concerned about using the fuel treatment?The bottle is small enough to pack easily. A little bit goes a long way. I pack a bottle in a pack and never know it's there.

So what's so different about our Berg FI system? I've read through this thread many times, but still couldn't quite figure that part out. Tolerences are incredibly small on our EFI. In fact I read where the 570 couldn't even run the 1st gen of KTM injector inlet screens. 570 couldn't pull enough fuel thru the inlet filter...starving. Think that's been rectified with V2 screen/filter size.

Are they commonly found at auto parts stores? Startron is found everywhere. Phaser/Phazer is a little harder to find. I just order my Phazer from James Renazco.


Thanks!

FL, Check out some of the youtube stuff on applying voltage to injector and reverse washing.

Question for all you smart Bergers out there...Why run a DOT tire for DS instead of something like a the stocker Bridgestone? I've heard that there is essentially no difference in the tread wear, and that it really boils down to a manufacturer paying for a certain tire in it's line up to be DOT certified.

No. My bike had basically the exact same symptoms as yours when I bought it 2 years ago. It had sat on the the showroom floor for a while and when I picked it up (late winter) it immediately had trouble starting. It would take about 6 or 7 cranks to finally start. If I shut the bike off for less than 30 seconds or so, it would immediately start back up without trouble. If it sat around for a minute or longer, then it would require multiple cranks again to start up. The bike ran great once started, all the time. It was under warranty and the dealer went through all the usually BS stuff: checked valve clearances, checked battery, ECU swapped for new one with competition map thanks to KTM USA, bla bla bla. I figured all along it was the injector but they didn't listen to me. Dealer finally swapped in a new injector, and voila, it's been fine since

When clogged, injectors can get stuck open or closed. In my experience, it's usually stuck open, which causes extra fuel to leak into the cylinder, essentially flooding the cylinder. That's why it takes multiple cranks to fire: it has to clear the extra fuel out so ignition can occur. It starts immediately after shutting the motor off because the injector doesn't have enough time to flood the cylinder.

The decompression apparatus on the cam has been known to cause problems in a few 'Bergs, but usually those will have trouble starting all the time, and the starting is usually easier when rolling the bike while in gear (gets to a certain point in the cam profile where the bike will start easier, or something like that). If it's valve clearance, it will consistently have trouble starting when hot, and usually start fine when cold. If it's the fuel pump, you would be able to hear that the pump is not running when you hit the start button (usually after overheating the pump), and it will only start after letting the bike site for a while to cool down.

My starting problem sounds exactly as you described yours. Good info.
Thanks Mark.

On the list.

I just got back from the dealer, valves are in spec at 50 hours/1800 miles. intake was right in the middle, exhaust was at 15, still in spec.

Chain was severely stretched, causing the rubbing. Must have gotten the guys old chain or something. I'm just very happy I can still run the best tire for me and my local environment, a D606.




More HusaPorn, my GPS mount and adjustable headlight brackets. With this super bright non DOT HID light I needed to be able to dip it down when riding at night on pavement.









I love this bike!

Did I read in here somewhere that the KTM LC4 rims would fit the husaberg?

If that is true then would the rear wheel off my KTM 640 standard fit?

Just flip it around and stick the Axle in?

I know what I am doing tonight when I get home! Cush Hub here I come!

Now I have no reason for the 450 not to be my main bike!

That chain must have been properly shagged. When they are worn badly, they will flop around side to side, hitting the tire and flap like yours was. What most KTM owners suggest as far as proper chain tension, remove the shock, and run the swing arm through its arc and check the tension. This will me more accurate than the suggested way of checking tension. Once you have done this, you will now have a point of reference. Congrats on the new bike.

Competition map

I'm picking up a new FE570 tomorrow and when I asked the selling dealer about installing the competition map he said no problem, I charge $70 for that. After all my searching I can't find where anyone had to pay the dealer for the map. I have no qualms about paying for a service as long as every other dealer isn't doing it for no charge.
