Well the Husaberg decided it was tired of being ridden too slow and taught me a lesson this weekend.. could be a couple of months before I am back out there.

Shims... any chance the FE390 shares shims with the 950/990?

Are there any shim kits out there like the Hot Cams kit that works for the 950/990?

edit: never mind. Found it. So... yes!

ouch. is that a temporary cast for a broken leg or support for a torn ligament. no fun either way! last weekend one of our guys did a collarbone and possibly a few ribs. very conscious of increasingly brittle bones as the gray hairs emerge.....

Bummed to see that pic. Heal up quick and well bud.

Riding like a 46 yo teenager, so that means you needed about 33 years of riding talent headroom. How much riding talent headroom did you have, before you ran out?

I'm 46 as well, and I'd guess I have about -15.

Sorry to hear about your injury, hope you heal up quick and recover fully.That looks nasty. Is the bench racing story good?

You da man. Maybe we can get together for a day of wrenching and B-S sometime? I'd love to have someone more competent than me looking over my shoulder the first time I do my valves. Since no one else is around, you'll do

Maybe I could fit my updated 70 degree tank [still sitting in a box in the garage] at the same time. Gimme a jingle sometime.

Anybody who got this tank, do yourself a favor and before you start the install get a 90 1/8 NPT to 6mm hose barb elbow (usually a couple of bucks on Ebay).




This goes in the right side rear vent hole so that you have the line pointing straight to the front and not up into the seat so that it has to make a sharp bend.

You can add it later but then you'll have to take off the rear subframe support brace again.

Awesome, thanks Lukas! I will stop by the hardware store on my way home from work Thursday and see if I can find one before I finish the install.

Got the tank on last night but nothing else. Have a gap between the battery box mount and the subframe tank. About a quarter of an inch. Not sure if that is normal or not. Stopped there for the night.

On a side. Got the trail tech map switch installed in about a minute in a half. Can definitely tell a difference. Bike still feels and sounds restricted from mid to high. Modified stock exhaust doesn't seem to be cutting it. A FMF can may be on order soon.
