In 2010 the first batch of bikes did not have manuals, contact your dealer.
There are many good things about the new Husabergs, my valves have not moved in 90 hours and that is usual for this engine.

I have had my 2010 FE450 for one year now and have clocked up 100 hours. The more I ride the bike, the more I like the bike.

Had the shop fit frame guards, radiator guards, case saver, pipe guard, rear master cylinder guard and Barkbusters. I swapped my Pivot Pegz with my 640 Adventure.

I am a riding gumby and this bike fills me full of confidence. I really like it's low speed balance and manoeuvrability. I am amazed at the way the thing climbs hills. I have never bogged the engine on a climb and I have never even used the clutch to prevent the engine stalling. The EFI is fantastic.

I have purchased a Safari tank and that will be installed soon. I am in the process of cleaning up an smoothing the sharp edges of the brackets. I also purchased a Rekluse clutch earlier this year. Still in two minds weather to install or not.

Love the way the bike cleans up after a ride and the ease of air filter maintenance is brilliant.

I love this bike.

2011 suspension

I am considering one of the two, so by any chance, anyone here know what rider weight the 2011 FE390 or 450 are sprung for from the factory? I weigh 154 lbs without gear and am wondering if the stock F/R suspension would need to be redone.

Thanks in advance

I went down to the garage and found it, here's what I got:

A couple stickers with the VIN number
A couple pieces of paper with the VIN number
Owners manual (in English)
Owners manual (in Spanish)
Spare parts manual, engine
Spare parts manual, chassis
Toolkit (almost forgot that because it's on the bike)
A copy of my Certificate of Origin
A copy of the diagnostic printout showing the installed MAP
A copy of the Bypack List (everything that was in the box with the bike)
Husaberg pen

That's it.

I also got:
- a larger rear sprocket
- longer chain
- spare clutch perch bracket
- steering lock keys (maybe masterkeyed for the PB mansion)
- husaberg CD with sales video

Only the 2011 570 is street legal from the factory in the US.

But all the '09 and '10 models as well as the '11 390 and 450 can be made street legal very easily, mine is.

I believe this is the default springs:

Weight of rider: 75... 85 kg (165... 187 lb.) 4.4 N/mm (25.1 lb/in)

I am not so sure it would be easy here in NJ if the title says "Offroad Only". But it would be worth a try to just walk in to a DMV and go through the process and hope it works.

Thank you. The stock suspension then should work fine for my wieght. I am 154 lbs without gear. With riding gear and hydration pack, I should be around 175 lbs. I don't really care for taking the bike apart to send out the forks and shock for retuning.

The COO for my '10 said motorcycle, so the DMV never questioned it.

But if you are buying one that is already titled as off-road, then you may have a problem.

May I ask which dealer you bought yours at? Maybe I can get one from them.
