Valves STILL in spec from the 300 mile service.
There's folks with more miles than me that have not rebuilt a thing. Jimmy Lewis has more hours on his and it hasn't needed any major service. As long as the owner changed the oil now and then and kept a clean air filter I wouldn't be afraid to buy the bike for the right price.
These aren't Orange bikes that need to get rebuilt often.
Thanks dude. Price agreed and deposit wired. Agreed I can pull out if it's not as described (I haven't seen it yet)

fuse 2 keeps blowing fe390

I've got a quick question about fuse 2.
I took my 2011 fe390 out today and it died on me. One of the first thing I checked was the fuses and fuse 2 was blown. I replaced it and when I tried to start bike the fuse popped again immediately. I looked it up and if i am correct fuse 2 is for the fuel pump.
So my question is, do the faulty fuel pumps pop fuses? Or does this sound more like a grounding problem? The bike only has 150kms on it, which isnt enough to chafe wires, which leads me to believe it may be a stalled fuel pump which could be drawing alot of current and popping the fuses.
Does this make sense? Im not an electrical guy


Edit. Never mind guys I found the answer over on husaberg.org
My fuel pump wire melted on my heat shield

Hey SR, Just curious if your bike was bone stock and it melted the wire? Or, had the tank been off before? Hoping to learn how to avoid this potential trouble. Thanks!!

It was my fault. I just put a lighting kit on my bike and had the tank off to run wires. I did not realize those wires were so close to the exhaust.

Our 2011 570 is in the flea market again. The new cam and fuel pump have transformed it. Kid has a new job and can't risk injury for a year so he is off the bikes for now.

lost rider is to blame for my upcoming berg purchase, picking one up tomorrow.

Anything to look out for? it's an 09 570, its got 6000km, all the bits and pieces to protect the bottom and radiators. Mostly want to get it reliable for solo hammock camping trips in deep gulleys of the jungle.
Do you guys carry spare injectors, and batteries for remote trips?

Try different types of pads, less grabby ones.

Pull the pads off and rub them smooth with sand paper. That should work for a bit.

????

Could you convert the super Moto to the dirt model with out much headache? I get the wheels are different but so is the front caliper. Would the caliper clear the spokes on the 21" set up? Are there any other differences between the two bikes? Suspension travel etc...

Thanx
