Is anybody having any stalling issues on a 2010 fx450 ?
We started up my friends bike last night for the first time and riding it around the yard and up and down the street in 40-50 degree temps, and the bike would continually stall out on decel.Sometimes after restarting as soon as you move the throttle it will stall, even after warmed up.
We just received this bike, its a brand new left over 2010.

Turn the idle knob to increase the idle speed of the Berg. Most people turn the idle knob (left side under shroud) down to idle like a carb'd bike, but they need to idle faster than you think.

See if that helps, and ride hard.

FMF question

Question, I have two FMF mufflers a Q4 and a Powercore 4 (both used). I have not mounted either on the bike and I would like to repack one and put a new end cap on before installing on the bike. Problem is I only have a kit to do one. For those with experence with them which one would you run?

Depends on your type of riding. I've got a Berg with a Q4 and a Berg with the Factory 4.1 Ti. Both have screens in them. Considerable difference in the sound levels. 4.1 is loud. I run the 4.1 on closed course and where noise isn't an issue. I run the Q4 when DSing and want to operate in stealth mode.

Thing I don't like about the Q4 is that there is no exhaust spring holder on the can. I like that extra little bit of security that comes with a spring compression fit and PermaGasket at the junction. I know it's belts and suspenders, but still like to run the spring so much that I'm getting a spring holder welded on the Q4 this week.

Know that didn't answer your question directly. 4.1 is the best FMF pipe for performance imho ( short, compact and free flowing). Q4 is larger, quieter and a better all round DS pipe.

Okay,thanks for the info,we will try that.
I pull that knob out for the cold start but I did not know it turned for the Idle speed.We just recieved the bike from New York and the dealer did not send the manuals yet .

Hey guys,

Is anybody using the Hard Parts triples below (8120109902268) in combination with a Scotts damper? All the submounts I have here for billet and cast KTM clamps won't work, due to the different offset as well as the handlebar mounting.



Since the steering damper arm axis is supposed to sit as close as possible over the center of the stem, I am assuming the mount would ideally place it in the center of both both adjustments, so 20.5mm. Is 1.5mm offset from centerline ok for the Scotts?

I know Husaberg sells a mounting kit (77012005544) for their own damper (81212005000), but I have no idea if this will also work for the Scotts. Any advice?





Thanks,
Lukas

We turned the idle adjuster screw up, but it didn't change the idle speed much and still has issues. It gets worse as it warms up. Part throttle (1/4 or less) the bike runs ok part throttle to wide open it bogs terrible. The bike is new 2010 and had a varnish smell in the tank was complete drained and 100 octane aviation fuel added.

Nah, bought them used on Ebay, after selling my stock black triples to the KTM guys who like the 22mm offset it should be a $50 upgrade.

There's a ton of guys on this thread who know more than me on this subject, but I'd check the fuel pump and then move onto cleaning the injectors in that order.

Read back in the thread and you'll see where some are running the CanAm external fuel filter, a fuel filler filter and Phaser or StarBrite Ethanol and Additives neutralizer. Highly recommend all 3.

Hey Lukas, If you have any Scotts submounts and posts for the 22mm that you want to sell let me know. I need 1. Good luck with the search.

Oh, sweeeeet blue Berg parts ya got there.

As TW suggested, I would start disassembling the fuel delivery path and see if anything is clogged, i.e., it may flow enough at idle to keep it running, but the flow is too restricted at more open throttle positions. First thing I would do there is remove the tank and take out the fuel pump and inspect everything. In particular, the fuel filter - it's possible it is clogged, see #2 on the diagram below:

If you mean the aluminum fuel adapter on the main tank, then both sides of the quick disconnect for the 70 degree tank 'curly' hose connection have check valves and won't leak. You should protect the quick disconnect valve left on the bike to keep dirt out of it. Do you want to put the stock plastic subframe back on (leaving the 70 degree adapter) and ride it, or just run it on a test stand?

Yes I want to leave the fuel adapter on the main tank.
Yes I want to run the plastic subframe back on.

Do you have any suggestions for covering the fuel hose connector?

Thanks for the fast response.
