I think you could sell a lot of oil coolers if it will increase the oil capacity and therefore lengthen the mileage between oil changes... I called the folks who make them for the KTM's and they just laughed at me when I asked if they could make one for a Husaberg.

Lost, I'm just back from the KTM Rally in Bend OR, so late to respond. Thanks for the details on your packing setup, very tidy. I now use all Big Agnes too for tent and sleeping, they rock. I just recently camped a few days in the BA Copper Spur UL1. Very small and light tent, but surprisingly roomy and comfortable.



On another post, regarding the bar tank that was posted:



ADV FE 390 rider HighFive has noticed that any added weight to the FE Berg's front end seemed to adversely affect handling of the bike. When he put a tube carrier on the front fender he said he really didn't like how it changed the stability, and removed it. I have not tried that myself and wondered what your (or others) experiences are with that since I see you did add a front fender tube carrier to your bike.

I just discovered, thanks to another ADVRider inmate Rensho, the "secret compartment".

The compartment houses emissions stuff but somehow mine isn't there and there's a nice size storage area to be filled up.

I posted what I put in this secret compartment over on the ADVRider 70 degree thread and thought I would share it here too.

Photos below.....


Yellow bag:

2 "T" handles are to prepare the puncture and install tire plugs....I run TuBliss and LOVE it !

Glue for tire plugs

Lots of tire plugs...can't have too many.

Spare valve stem cores

Spare key

JB Weld

Elastic Bands


Black Bag:

(3) 20g CO2 cartridges

Adapter for cartridges

Spare bolts kit


Here's the compartment, I removed the three protrusions located at the upper aft end, or to the right as you're looking at this photo.

Posted on the other section but never got an answer.

Looking to add some electronic accessories (mainly heated grips right now) and was wondering of any of the 3 loose sets of wires that are behind my head light and run down the head tube can be used for that? If not, anyone know what they are for?

I have my grips spliced into a wire found by the headlight, they only power up with ignition on so I don't kill my battery by leaving them on.

Once I get my bike back from getting tuned at Bazzaz I'll be happy to let you know what wire, though I'll answer your question in the general Husa owners thread, since this thread is not really meant for general Husa owners stuff.

The other 70 Husaberg owners thread is filled with an excellent broad range of knowledge, but I'd like to have a more specific thread with info not to get lost in all the pages of other general info, tech support, troubleshooting and banter.
I'm going to share how I do my adventuring on the FE, and hope others will join in with their own experiences, suggestions or questions about gear and anything else related to riding or maintaining the current model 70 Husaberg for long distances away from home base or camping off the bike.
Photos of your Husaberg in action traveling, especially while packed are most welcomed here.

I just ran a wire from the battery up to the Garmin rugged mount.. has worked like a charm so far.. I use simple ram mount.,..it does make it hard to see the speedo though. If I was to do it again I would find a keyed power source up under the headlight, but when it comes to all things electrical I am just clueless.

I would also know if anyone's got a "montana like" GPS that will do bluetooth for music. Sometimes a little crunchy guitar makes the perfect soundtrack, even through earplugs.

Not sure my Zumo 660 will be appropriate for the berg, might want more data points and ruggedness for tracks and trails. Spose I cold just run a BT mp3 player...

any preview or hints on how you are doing it? or just building the suspense?

had a few husky sprockets lying around for the cush drive hub rear wheel so thought i'd experiment with gearing with the new chain and 15 tooth front. put a 45 tooth on the rear and thought it would be ridiculously high even with the rekluse auto clutch, but very surprised. still no worries in gnarly stuff and hill climbs as it just slips as you get near walking speed. change into fifth at about 80kmh and sixth at 100kmh, which i figured evens out the wear on the higher gears with all the adv riding i'm doing. but given i'm doing a mix of dirt and adv i'll probably settle on a 47 for the back. i like having the 15 tooth up front, it'll last longer and a bit less wear on the rubber pads on the swingarm.

i put the stock wheel back on for yesterday's dirt ride just to see if it felt different to the cush drive hub. surprised the difference it makes even on dirt, the cush definitely takes away a lot of that jerkiness especially at lower revs.

dammit i love this bike. we'll probably be legalising same sex unions in australia soon, how about for our bergs?

Which Rekluse do you have? I have the Z-start pro on my 2011 570s and I can not get it adjusted so it is ALWAYS creaping forward. I love it most of the time, but man it can be a real pain in the ass when I want to flip a three point turn or back the bike up.

just the base model rekluse exp 2.0. not sure how the z-pro works, but on the exp you have carefully adjust the throw-out before you bolt the clutch cover back on. your instructions should tell you if the z-pro adjustment works the same way or not.

if you've never messed with your idle, its probably still set at the factory standard, 1500rpm. if the rekluse is only just engaging, you can just lower your idle to 1300rpm or so and it will probably be fine. with the added bonus of the clutch staying engaged on downhills at lower revs. but you dont want to go so low on your idle that the cam chain is slapping around.
