OEM Map Switch question...

I found the the three settings that matter 0 - 1 - 2. Then there's all the other extra numbers that don't matter. My question...how do I know what map I'm on? I couldn't feel indentation clicks to count it out. There is no arrow on the housing I could see.

How can you tell what map on you're on?

If you're like me and your bike likes to take trail naps too, check out this new product from Trailjammer Designs for the '09-'12 FE390,FE450,FE510,FE570 Berg's. It'll protect your OEM clutch cover so you won't punch a hole in it leaving you stranded w/no oil and metal in your engine. ADVinmate Rensho helped me get these out to you. Thanks! Free shipping for ADVinmates. Spread the word. It looks similar to this picture of the WR450F. This product is so new, I don't have a picture of it on a Berg yet. sorry for the self plug. just wanted to let you guys know.

Look really hard! Small white dot.

2-fast
3-0-medium


Life is good!

I keep it on 1 for the woods around here (mines a 570). The mid and high make it scary to ride in the tight stuff with 13/52 gearing.

got my Berg last week. Its a '11 FE 450 and im loving the hell out of it!

great bike, its a beast and it got tons of low end torque and the touchy accelerator is amazing

One thing though that i noticed was: i got a fair bit of dust on my air filter in only one 80km ride, it was a fast paced ride on a very dusty dirt road, but it this normal? or maybe my seat was not put on properly?

Thank you very much. It's nearly warn off on mine! Can't wait to see the differences in the maps.

They've listed another one on eBay. Still $99, but no more free shipping. I bought one a few weeks ago when they were offering free shipping.

I have started to see dealers beginning to liquidate their Husaberg branded stuff and related parts. I have been taking advantage of the clearance prices and am picking up parts as I can before they become difficult to find and priced accordingly.

dust and dirt bikes kindof go hand in hand.

You just use a good silicone sealant. Clean the case with alcohol -- same with the inner surface of the case saver cover. Spread a uniform layer of silicone on the inside of the cover and press it in place. Clean off the excess that will squeeze out and let the silicone cure. I've done this to a DR650 and a DRZ400 a number of years ago. They're still tightly in place.

Thanks JWDUB! That's a text book perfect explanation. Very easy to install.

bummer. i know some have said the 570s could have good resale value eventually if they are the last of the true big bore dirt bikes. at least most of the parts are KTM exchangeable and i heard EU regulations ensure manufacturers keep parts available for at least a decade after a model is discontinued so parts shouldnt be an issue.

I think you will do OK selling a 570 as they are the big boy and can be plated for the street. I believe Ted is selling a FX450 that would be a more limited market.
