Bend27 runs a coyote over the rear tank on his ktm, maybe ask his opinion on how it fits for a rough comparison? Will try fond one of his pics.

Thanks guys,

Appreciate your input; that gives me some peace of mind to go and try something like the Coyote...

Cheers

Where do you hide stuff on your Husaberg?

Gents, in the spirit of sharing cool and useful info I'm looking to learn where you stash tools, spares, tyre pump, etc. I see on Finn's pics some little bits here and there which greatly interest me to know more. Also I think I saw some sort of hand fasteners on the bash plate or some such (those yellow things), what are those?

In other words, I'm accumulating spares and bits for proper trail riding, such as grip wire + glue, spare levers/pedals, a hand pump, tyre irons, patch kit, tyre valve tool, spare throttle cables, cloth tape, tow rope, chain breaker -- some of these are just backpack fodder but if it's all in the pack I'm using up all my pack space and I'd rather be able to hide stuff around the bike. Also my geigerrig is not the biggest one so I don't have a large backpack space after the bladder is full and I would like to avoid having the two "bike rolls" to put into (and fill up) the backpack, but that's all I have been able to do so far. Been leaning towards building two bum bags and just strapping on the one matching the bike I'll be taking.

Unfortunately my FE570 Australian version does not have the "secret compartment" along the left rear there, so I'm looking for sneakier places to stash things like the hand pump. I've seen people wrapping rope around their bars and such for tow ropes. I even bought one of those fender-top-bags but that needs to go somewhere else when I need the light...

What tricks do you guys use to stash things around your berg?

Chris

A small/medium sized tank bag carries all my bits and pieces in one place including tool kit, pump/levers/tyre repair kit and tape and zip ties etc, with room for wallet and a small bottle of water. With the Berg being light on the front end it doesn't affect the steering or seat space and I can still refuel without removing the bag.

Chris,

The FE Bergs have very little empty space anywhere on the bike.

I did a tool tube mod to carry my tools off my back, and always have them with me whether trail riding light, or packing heavy.

+1 Bruce, I use the small Wolfman tank bag and it works a treat.

BTW a new 2012 FE390 70deg snuck in to my garage for XMAS replaing the 2010 model. Very subtle improvements but noticable.

Besides the good posts above, I stash me tire irons/wrench combo tools here:






For those folks that do mixed dual sport riding, you might want to stay away from Dirt Tricks front sprockets and get a cush hub...

See the Husa owners thread for the full story.

Nice one, what improvements are there. My 2010 has needed a new battery and that is it.

hey cruz
so sounds like about two years for the stock battery (assuming it's been regularly charged)? good to know, with the rekluse there's no bump starting the bike so i'll probably replace the battery before it dies, although i carry jumper leads around.

only thing on mine has been the countershaft seal has started leaking.

After the t/a I didn't get near the Berg for months and it can't be set up for a tender so it wasn't well looked after. It was fine before then.

Rear clips on fender - tighten this strap before tightening front straps.


Straps around plastic frame guards. Too close to exhaust if wrapped around frame. partially melted strap on old loop bag!

Picture of bag on bike in Post #476

Carry tools/tube in/on bum-bag. Spare filter etc in back-pack. All gadgets in GL tank bag PUT IN PLASTIC/DRY BAGS - drowned 2 cameras the first time i used the tank bag in a whole day torrential rain.

Which size dromedary bag for the back of my 390?
Leaning toward the 6L but the 4L may fit better
I'm also using a Mojavi Bag which I really like.
