Husaberg 70 Degree Owners Thread!

The title says it all. I did a search and found no thread for the new 70
degree Husaberg Motors, so here it is!

Lets make this an everything 70 Degree thread, pics, video, questions, problems, parts info, you name it, I want to find it here. I'd start us off with a pic of my new Berg but I take delivery tomorrow. I'll post one later this week.

In the mean time, I'll start. Here are a few links to some aftermarket parts.

http://www.driveonit.com/120511/Husaberg-Skid-plate one of the only people that make aluminum skid plates for the new Bergs.

http://www.hyderacing.com/store/dirtbike/husaberg.htm Hyde Racing make a bunch of carbon parts for the new Bergs and the older ones too.

https://pirieperfprod.com/Home_Page.html here is a link to P3 Pirie Performance Products they make quality carbon stuff for bikes including a nice head guard for the Bergs.

so who's got a 70 degree Berg and wants to talk about it?

it's about the big motor but i think beyong the motor size the 390 & 450 are mostly the same.

Not a berg owner but I would love one.

anyway here is a new approach to fuel tanks and a damn fine one at that!
http://www.70degreeracing.com/index.html

On the berg forums in KTM a lot of guys like this tank. This guy went through hell to get it made and selling them for roughly 400.

BTW subscribed!

I have a 70 degree tank on my 570. It works very well. The OEM pump doesn't pull all of the fuel out of the OEM tank. When the 70 degree tank is added the problem is compounded some. I think that about 1/2 gal is unreachable with the setup as sold. I might try to make some changes so I can get more fuel out.

The rear vent hose runs up to the main tank. I pulled the ball out of my gas cap so both tanks breath. That has helped keep the fuel levels even in both tanks.

I am not sure if I will put one on my 390. It depends on how I use it.

The price has gone up - $50 IIRC. Still worth it IMO. I heard a rumor that Husaberg may offer it in their 'hard parts' catalog. The only thing you really give up with this tank is the handholds, which aren't very good any way - a tugger strap is the remedy.

Thanks, it was still pretty in the first pic. But after dropping it in CO a few times and at home even more, it's got a scratch or two on it now.

Here is the link:-http://www.digitalguarddawg.com/

Seem s like a good idea if you are worried about security.....it is a t least another solution. Bit pricey though!!
Keyswitch from a DRZ400? fits easily. About $40 and come with a mounting bracket. Contacts are a bit strange - wire the starter and fuel pump to it. You can source mating connectors for the harnesses and not have to worry about cutting the one on your bike. That way you can unplug the switch and return the wiring to stock.

www.easternbeaver.com has most of the connectors you'll need. NAPA or similar auto parts store will have the rest.

I want to order a new set of tires this week. Several of you suggested going with a Bridgestone M59 front and Pirelli MT16 rear for New England riding.

Can anyone confirm what exact size for that tire combination will fit my 570 and work best?

(I see the stock tires are 90/90-21 and 140/80-18 but wondering if I couldn't go a little wider/deeper with this new set)

Thanks, Ross

You can go to an 80/100 on the front which will be narrower and taller. In the rear you might be able to find a 150/70 street tire but finding a dirt tire that wide will be a challenge.

Wider than the stock 140 rear tire is too wide for the stock 2.15" rim
