Leds were easy to install on my 390. Previous owner had installed the ktm cev multi function switch. I bought Sicass racing handguards with integrated turn signals. Mounted them to my KTM barkbusters. After that I swapped in a Sicass led flasher http://sicassracing.com/store/produc...signal_flasher

And this:

End result works perfect with rear led flushmounts.

Damage report...

I've seen the damage... and it's not good

I'll post pics later. EDIT: Pics here

At a minimum, I'm going to need a new head (and all associated parts) - it got REALLY hot and one valve impacted the piston, so that means a new piston too. Also will need a new cam chain & all associated bits. Most of the debris in the oil was from the melted cam chain tensioner & plastic parts. Possibly need a rod - won't know about the bottom end until we can split the case.

Also needed - does anyone know where I can get a primary gear puller and a case/crank puller for the 570 motor? With Husaberg disappearing, these tools seem to be hard to come by.

My mechanic/shop is asking for the primary gear puller and/or crank puller so that he can split the case and check the gears/gearbox to see what (if any) damage the gearbox suffered. With all that melted and shredded plastic debris floating around I don't want to leave some bits to clog up a bearing somewhere and repeat the mess again.

Big bummer Bogeyman. Sorry to see. I'll look around if anyone is selling motor parts.

Husaberg 70 Degree Owners Thread!

Installing a Rekluse clutch slave and in the process of removing the OE slave, the paper gasket got ruined. I'm going to make one from a sheet of gasket paper. It seems a c-hair thicker, but I don't think that should matter. Anyone disagree?

Edit: won't work:( need OE gasket. Very small and my ham fists can't do it

Life is good!

Got some info on the primary gear extractor over on husaberg.org. But I'll ask the same question here - anyone know of a source for a used (or even new for that matter) 570 engine?

Contact Cyclebuy. I usually get all my spare parts from them.

The graphic template.

How horrible was the front safari install?

It was horrible to begin with. But after reading the problems posted by riders in this thread and on Husaberg.org, my mechanic was able to sort the installation issues and he did a good job. The issues are mainly due to the cross brace at the bottom not lining up with the holes at the bottom of the tank on either side and also the filler adaptor is too big ( by about 1mm) to fit in the OEM tank filler hole. So it needs to be grinded. For the cross brace I just took it to a mufler shop and gave them a small template and had them weld an additional piece of metal on either side to extend it to line up with the holes. Because I had the sub frame tank which comes with a aluminum fuel pump housing I used that to drill an additional spigot and plumb all 3 tanks. This was the hardest part as we realized this was the best way to go a little too late. Initially we used brass compression fittings to plumb all 3 tanks but that was taking up too much space and causing the hoses to kink. Simply drilling an additional spigot resolved the issue and we used quick disconnects in all possible locations to quickly disconnect the tanks.

Having done all that and after spending a lot of money on man hours, I can say that I am happy with the final finish. I have a 5+ gallon range and the weight of the fuel is evenly distributed and sits low and doesnt interfere with the riding position.

Thanks for sharing. I'm toying around with idea of doing the same on my own. What do mean by "drilling an extra spigot" ? You modified the base of the safari tank to allow another point of fuel to be drawn from?

Anyone have a JD tuner on their 570 ? Where do I find the plug to plug in the tuner?

Cranked my rear brake foot lever on some low cut trees today. Will a Ktm lever fit the 2011 Berg 570? Or a link to aftermarket lever would be cool. Thanks!
