Wierd that looks almost the same. I know mine was claimed 9800lm which is absurd, but it is pretty bright. Might have diff drivers. I hooked it to the bike 12v running power. Here is comp shots vs my HID... In person the HID appears a bit brighter. You can see a bit more grain on the LED shot. I have a SkyRay King 4x XM-L2 light that is not quite as bright and it is pushing the emitters hard enough to burn your hand after a few minutes.

Here is the one I got .. $72 on Ebay

Water pump seal

After finding antifreeze in my oil, I pulled the cover and decided to try to flip the seal around. Looking at some seal pics from past post, I think the seal might be in backwards. I have never removed any pump seals before and I am a little worried about damaging seal. How do you remove the seal without damage?

I personally would not reuse any engine seal. They are too easy to damage / cut lip seal , & also cheap.

I think I will replace the back seal also.

it's o' beer thirtay!

wrapped the harness in an old tube
cleaned the injector & TB
added the CanAm fuel filter
removed O2 sensor
added KTM headlight (soon to be LED...)
removed the old kill switch & added the CEV switch

i'm loving working on the Berg. all those comments i read about them being "difficult" and "awkward" to work on were totally misleading. every wire connector was in place, the proper length and ready to connect up, plug & play.

i can't wait to get this thing in the dirt!

next up will be the low fuel sender, brake lights, UHD tube in the rear, remove the Tubliss front (soon for sale), install some black hoops, cush hub and a safari tank.

Thanks for posting the shots. It looks very bright. So you wired it to 12v, when it came stock with a 8.4v battery pack? That would explain the extra brightness. I hope the regulator is multi-V and handles it no issues.
That's a lot of lumens for the $$.

Big bore kit for a FE390

I am thinking about converting my 390 to a light-rally set up (safari front tank, & 70 degree tank for a total of 5 gallons) and a nav tower setup. If I had a 450 I wouldn't think about a big bore kit. But since I have a 390, I am wondering if anyone knows of a big bore kit to bring it up to 450 or close. I do have a 690 with a full rally set up that I used at the recently held at the 1st Baja rally, but I thought a 450 would be more better suited.

Thinking the same thing. What's the downside of keeping the 390?
Granted that the goal was not podium finishes?
