Anyone find one? Cyborg?
I have had the whole thing apart and did not find any short of catalyst. My header and mid pipe were straight thru and my silencer was of the turbine arrester type with this in the end cap. I cut around the larger pipe behind the weld and doubled the diameter of the exhaust exit.





It took maybe 5 mins.


Shop was adamant that there was nothing wrong with the bike and they did not change anything. Between them looking at it, the cleaned air filter, and this little mod the bike now rips!!! I have had a smile on my face for the past hour and that was just riding it around the fire station. Super excited. Got to fix my fender, turn signal, and tag now after jumping it off an embankment but greatly relieved for it to be running right. Get to take it on some real trails tomorrow. Depending on how it handles that it may replace my Honda crf450r for a harescramble this weekend.

Thx, RTF and Cyborg for the quick reply. The person that showed the item/removal is from Europe.

I'll wait until I need to take off the header/tank to take a look inside that junction next to the side of engine.

RTF, I did cut off that piece, and it did help with perf as well as sound. Love it.

I can say that the muffler is essentially straight through, with that vortex looking thing towards the rear end. I believe that also functions as the sparkie.

The "vortex looking thing" in the OEM can is a turbine style 'Krizman' spark arrestor. Don't get rid of it if you ride in dry forested or grassy areas. That sparkie works by flinging hot particulates to the side against the can walls, and what's left is caught by the inward protruding pipe RTF cut out.

The cat sits in the inlet of the muffler, just slips out.

I think only Euro and OZ bikes get it.

Thanks LukasM. When I pulled it, wasn't sure if the previous owner removed it already. It was most logical it was there.

Bits and pieces

Since getting my berg i've been aquiring bits and pieces but not had the time to get them added, a day off and mucky weather gave me the opportunity to remedy this. Most bits are not revolutionary i.e BPD shark fin and chain guide protector mmmmmm nice but no need for pics i think.

My bike turned up with its left rad like this

IMG00156-20121116-1857

IMG00157-20121116-1857

so i replaced it with a used one from ebay .. easier than i thought ... and added some hard parts braces that i got lucky on ebay with :

IMG00161-20121116-1859

should stop that happening again!

A fortuitous message to LukasM got me a set of factory triple clamps thanks Lukas, and as my head bearings needed replacing this seemed the ideal time to fit them ... i think they look real good with the white plastics, i'll try and get some better pics in daylight

IMG00160-20121116-1859

and i also got a new tail light from paul garfield .. combined tail light, brake light, license plate light and indicators, very neat but i'll have to get the wifes opinion on how effective it is :

it works well except for one time i experimented with using the hook straps that come with the new us10. i'm only using them for carrying my trail pack tools/tubes etc rather than the full luggage system but i like the tidiness of it. when i used the hok straps i found that there is a minimum length for those straps and if the us10 wasnt full or the contents could shift then once you start bouncing around off road the hooks could come detached from the loops and the us10 end up resting on the exhaust so have gone back to the original us10 mounting i.e. the webbing strap threadded through the rack loops, more secure and plenty of adjustment

A late arriving center nut for my rekluse clutch forced my Honda 450 out of being able to race the final round of the SORCS Harescramble at AmpMX in Alabama this weekend. Well.....I do have the Husaberg!




I am big and slow and not very good at racing. My friends are pretty good and I enjoy hanging out with them and meeting new folks that ride so I go.

I still have the stock six days tires on there and it is pretty worn. Didn't have time to replace them. Did get the plate and turn signal off while installing my Honda's bark busters. The bike initially ran great. Felt smooth and controllable through the tight woods and was able to take some bigger hits on the MX track. It started to over heat on the second lap, approximately on the 10th mile or so, and started getting very jerky. The constant on/off gave me some horrible arm pump. Shortly after that a tree jumped out in front of me and I banged my shoulder pretty good. I figured that was enough for me and I didn't want to hurt the bike running it hot. I slowly finished my lap and watched everyone else flying around the MX track.

Some things I learned;

-This thing does not feel like a 570! It got thru the tight stuff just as easy if not easier then my 450.
-the hydraulic clutch is super sweet and oh so smooth. Don't believe I would ever need a rekluse for this bike!
-Should have put the fan kit on it. I thought it was going to be colder than it was. It does overheat in tight woods single track.
-Better tires would have made a big difference.
-Smooth throttle from the EFI (before it started overheating) made my lack of tire manageable.

All in all have a ton of fun and learned a lot about my bike. I am still going to keep my crf450r as my woods race bike so I can hammer on it and not feel bad. The Husaberg almost had me convinced to sell the Honda but I think I would rather keep the Berg dedicated to to trails and dual sporting.

And thanks to Josh at www.88fotos.com I have a great picture to remind me of my Husaberg hare scramble race! Proof that a street legal, big bore Berg can get a 6'6", 260lbs chubby boy up in the air!

Nice air!

The more you ride the Berg "hard", the more you'll realize how fun and relaxing it is.

I can spend a full hard day on my Berg before running out of steam.. Whereas, a few hours on my WR450F would wipe me out. It's the strangest thing....in a wonderful way. But then, mine is the magical 390.

Personally, I think your Honda is in trouble...
