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.

Just to report...dealer says my fuel issue ('11 FE390) was due to badly plugged up filters and a kinked hose in the tank. Fuel pump is one of the newer ones and is fine. They also rinsed out the tank...which I insisted upon.
Looking forward to getting this bike back and moving 'er beyond the 12 hour mark.

Hey HF, by friends bike is an '09 too, so maybe the swingarms are different on our '11's, who knows...
