Stock gearing is perfect. The sixth gear is magic. You will not even use 6th under 100kph (62mph), seriously. It will cruise all day happy as a clam at +65mph.

I looked up a few places and they had conflicting information on the RPM / speed calculations. They sprockets are a bit on the worn side so I was going to go with the Ironman sprockets and chain combo from cyclebuy. I was thinking 14/52. What are you out there running for DS use?

I also heard that people have been converting the stock subframe to a gas tank...?




Welcome and congrads!

I have a 2011 570 I use for dual sporting and trail riding in upstate NY area. I found that 14/49 works best for the riding I do. ( not a great deal of single track). Cruises along at 55-65 comfortable and get about 45-50 mpg. I have a rear 70 deg subframe tank and stock tank and can go ~ 150 miles between fillups. I currently have ~ 1800 miles on mine and is just starting to break in



Make sure you check your counter shaft splines, invest in a dirt tricks counter shaft washer and consider a cush drive if you plan on DS for primary use.

sorry can't find it. i sent him a PM on the unofficial husaberg forum but that forum doesn't save PMs. checked a few threads and cant find his posts. google search didnt turn anything up either. all i remember is he did post about his berg fleet once or twice on the husaberg forum on threads where guys were talking about how long they'd go before needing rebuilds.

EDIT: nice find below by lukas. this will have to be the guy, i remember he was dutch and the site is in dutch. http://www.algarve-offroad.com

The Adventure Rider Center in Malaga (South of Spain) has all the 2013 Husaberg models to rent and do tours and/or training courses on:

A couple of hours further West on the Portuguese side of the border is Algarve Offroad, I believe they have been running a fleet of 70° Bergs for a couple of years now.

At how many hours should I look at replacing the filters on the fuel pump? (have a tank sock-filter). 2012 model, 70 degree.

btw I LOVE the induction roar.

thanks for the tips. I'll get a washer.

and now the mods...

$25 EBay HID

H4 Bi-zenon 4300k bulb with a mini ballast. zip tied in place. fits like a glove.




Use the wires from the running light for the ballast. White is + brown is -. Blue wire is bulb + brown wire is -.


I'll get beam shots later. storming outside... output is fantastic.. pattern is almost perfect with a nice cutoff on low.


tool box. from an old XT350 or something? it fits in the left rear fender well.


fits all my tools and clears the 120/100 Desert IT


zip tied in place


mirrors


Tubliss, Desert IT 120/100


chainsaw rack




Akrapovic

Anyone know how to replace the pickup magnet mounted on the front disk? My magnet's fallen off... Or I guess I should be asking where to get a stick on or glue on replacement?

rare earth magnets are cheap as chips on ebay. just superglue to the disc. keep the rest for spares or sticking your photos to the fridge.

I think a red or black rtv will hold a neodium magnet in there as well.

I use rtv to keep the magnet housing from vibrating around on the rotor.
