[QUOTE=b18c5rodney;18789877]i guess i jinxed myself with removing the fuel sock...


The sock probably had nothing to do with it. Sounds like a pump but for the noise you could hear. Your impeller may have come off the drive or was spinning so slow it didn't build enough pressure. Most lock up and will cool off and spin again for a few times b4 just crapping out completely. The newest pumps are probably OK, I have one in my 2011 570. The Ca pump is probably the only way to get on the road right away, or within a week anyway. Ask your dealer if he has the OEM updated pumps in stock. On my first pump it took 8 weeks to get a new one.

I pulled my sock filter too, what a PITA.

Sounds just like mine did on the first ride.. I could hear the fuel pump spin so I thought it was something else..but after reading hundreds of posts on this, and talking to the dealer they said it sounded like the fuel pump.. so I took it into them.. they pulled it.. it was the old style solid black model... they had assumed it had the new green topped model because the bike had been delivered so late in the year... Dec 2011. So they put the green topped one in... and I have done two day long, stop and go trail rides since, and the bike fires up on the first push of the magic button. It is definitely your fuel pump, IMHO.

You can see in this picture that there is some clearance.




We rode lots of rocks and mud that day and I didn't see any issues with his setup.
Looks about same as mine. And yes, I've tried with a new chain +1 link. I'm betting you didn't ride down the highway at 70 mph. I think that is where my problem surfaced. High speed centrifugal force expanding the tire. Its probably ok for slower speed trail riding. But what do I know....

Seems like a good theory HF. Been told the MT43 really lasts well on pavement, but I think you are right about the clearance needed for it to "grow" at speed. How convenient. The tire "gears up" for you as you ride faster down the road

Here is a little video of my FE450 in action on one of the rougher rocky mountain trails I know of. Had to turn around as my buddy on his GasGas 300 was crying like a baby. Gotta love the 'Berg. They eat rocks for breakfast, lunch and dinner. No bike I have owned craves rocky nasty terrain like the Berg. It was a sunny day, with thin clouds that we went in and out of. That is why it looks a bit foggy here and there. High elevation mountain riding is a trip.

Not viewable on your fancy handhelds as music is mixed in. Did one of those half and half jobs where you can still hear the bike clearly but with music. The song chosen suits the trail, particuarly around 1:30 into it where it gets crazy sidehill with a drop off of death to the left. Mrs. Duke slapped me when she saw that

I'm wondering if my fuel injector is plugged and in need of a flushing? It idles high also after riding it for a little bit.

Anyone have any ideas? It has started to be a bit tougher to start, I actually need to use the choke on the throttle body for the fist time since I've owned it.....hmmmm, sounding more and more like a plugged injector.
Have you ruled out valve clearances being out of spec? Could explain harder starting and even maybe the exhaust note.

Well actually HF, he has a lot of fast miles on the MT43 too, both high speed gravel and paved. He's 6'3" and weighs 250 as well and has stiffer springs on the bike. Dunno.

Brought my '11 390 back to the dealer to get fuel problem sorted (luckily still under warranty)...whether it's the filters or pump we'll see. Hopefully they replace both parts and I can get back to riding asap.

I second this thought.

I've had no problems running the rear MT-43 on my Berg. Mine is an '09 though, which came with a longer chain. The chain length is definately the issue here IMO.

Does anyone have the manual and willing to post the section about the valve adjustment? I have the CD but no windows machine to view it

for the valve adjustment, go look at Husaberg.org. Someone there has taken the time to explain it clearly and provide photos. It's very easy to do, once you remove a few things to gain access.

Guess I got a dud....

Should have kept my Trials bike instead.
