The cylinder looks pretty normal to me. I see cross hatching in the cylinder which should be there from the factory. The rings on the piston will not scrub the entire cylinder so you will see a difference at the top and the bottom. The side of your piston looks pretty well scuffed up. do both sides look that way or just one? if its one or one worse than the other it could be because of the thrust side...the side that sees more cylinder wall loading based on the rod angle/movement.


Edit: I see the matching scuffing on the cylinder wall. You might have someone check the cylinder bore and taper. If you are doing new rings you will want a fresh hone (anyone?).

The other company is Ricor with the Vibranator, as far as I know it's the same thing as the HDB insert though.
Thanks for the replies all.

I have ~100mi on the HDB guards. I took off some Acerbis guards, and it doesn't feel a whole lot different.

The vibes are about the same as my former Yamaha WR250x.

The Vibranator was what I was thinking about. Since I threaded/tapped my bars for the HDB guards, I wanted something that would work seamlessly with the current setup.

I wouldn't hone it if these things have a lined cylinder, as in Nic-a-sil or something similar.

Cylinder honing or replating

Since I want to keep this bike forever, I don't wanna cheap on my cylinder. It's crazy to by a new OEM cylinder + piston + crankshaft for about 2500$ here in Canada with all the taxes.

Do you have a good mechanic or place that can fix my crankshaft + replate my cylinder + fix a new piston and ring kit into that for a lot less than brand new ?

Yeah, get in touch with Travis at Thumper Racing.

info@thumperracing.net

For $3200 you can even get a 660 kit with a billet stroker crank and bigger bore cylinder.

Looks like they cut off the intake boot and just left the end on top of the transmission. It is not going thru the engine case so it probably just sitting there in the picture.

First day out on my new 11' FE390

My new best friend

This bike is a hoot! I put 4.8 hours on it today so first oil change tomorrow.
Looking forward to a whole new kind of riding.

Can anyone tell me what the output is of the stator for a 2010 390. Did a search and could only find info for the 570, which looks like it is around 200w.

Well, it was first used in KTM quads (still with RFS engines!) around 2008, then Husaberg bikes in 2009, and then the KTM 500 etc in 2012.

But in the end every Husaberg part is made by KTM anyway.

PS: Big lights are out! Get yourself a Squadron LED (or two if you are running Baja) and enjoy all the light you will ever need with less draw than a normal halogen bulb.

so, silly question time....

oil level... check it cold or hot after running the engine a bit?
If I set it cold halfway up the sightglass, it disappears after running a bit. Takes quite a while for all of it to get back down to halfway. Like a few hours.
