Had a bit of fun this weekend at Cross Bar Ranch near Davis OK. We didn't find any rocks but there was a bit of mud!!!



Learned that when playing in the rocks you might wanna run a bit more tire pressure than 12!

Well I got the brand new 570 out this weekend.. after 12 miles of rocky single track and dirt I stopped for a break.. about 15 minutes later.. bike wouldnt start. I could hear the fuel pump start.. but the bike would just kinda turn over and huff and fart a bit. I thought it was boiled gas.. but after further reading on husaberg.org I am wondering if it isnt the fuel pump?? I undid the quick disconect and on start up it was definitely moving some fuel. So what is the next step? Remove the check valve from the fuel cap? does that do anything? I ordered the heat blanket and some heat wrap for the header.. needed or a waste of time? Thoughts would be appreciated.. pretty disheartening to have your brand new bike not start after 12 miles. I will say the next day it did better... longer ride.. more stops and starts.. it did hesitate after a lunch break, but eventually started. It seems to get worse when it sits for a while.. when I stopped for only a few minutes.. it would start back up no problem.

The heat blanket and header wrap are good things that you will want to do. Also an additional inline fuel filter is a good add on. I had problems with my check valve in the gas cap and had to remove it but I had different symptoms than what you are describing.
Has it been de-smoged yet. I know fuel in the canister can cause problems like that.

yeah the dealer de-smogged it and remapped it also put the grey fuel filters in... but I dont know if the fuel pump is the all black one (bad?) or the two colored one (good?). I also ordered a shorai battery.. I use them on my other bikes and love them.

My 2010 was doing the same thing recently - it would take at least four crank 5 seconds-wait 5 seconds/repeat for it to start. Huffing and farting after the 2nd or 3rd attempt. If it didn't catch after 5 attempts, it wasn't going to start.
It would restart hot fine, but waiting 20 minutes or more was back to the problem.

Turned out it was the fuel pressure regulator.

1 crank after the fuel pump prime now.

Went to the Shorai as well, so far so good.

Hey Cyborg, did you try a better standard bulb in the oem before going to the BD Squadron?

Your work looks great.

Thanks Cruz, no I didn't want to try a different incandescent bulb because I felt the beam pattern out of the OEM reflector was terrible. I wanted to keep power use down and a more powerful standard bulb would draw even more. I had wired both filaments ON in the standard OEM bulb for technically 70watts and the light output was still very marginal at night.

This Squadron draws about 43watts and put's out great light that's easy to ride with at night.

For the suspension experts:

How are the static sag and race sag numbers affected by going to a progressive rear spring instead of a straight wound spring ?
