To answer your question, no, no issues that I've experienced with 15,000 miles or 400 hours on mine that wasn't operator error caused. @ 12,000 I replaced the rings since we were in there fixing the countershaft I wore out after not running a cush drive, and riding lots of pavement, but only because we were already there, not because it had to be replaced. 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.

We'll talk about that when we go down to Baja next month, if you finish the race.
You better hope you don't break down!



Heading out tomorrow for some Lost moto-fishing-riding-camping alone time on my favorite bike, the crappies are hitting, the trout are hungry and the mountain single tracks are finally opening up!..








Nice riding with you last week in DV reshno, we had 4 Husa's that glorious day - good times!

reshno in front, me second, reshno's friend 3rd and pinevalley's sweet Rally setup Husa towards the end.

I've just seen a brand new in-crate 2012, 70 degree FE390 at MPE Caloundra....must be last on planet!

(no affiliation with MPE, bought my last bike from him, seems a good dealer)

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?
