still looks like some good riding to me. thanks for sharing
I never noticed anyone storing some para cord behind the headlight mask. I like it! Also, where did you get that mirror? I am currently nursing some sore ribs that were partially caused by my mirror.
I was riding my 09 390 Berg and all of a sudden it just dies in the middle of the trail, like it ran out of gas. Had been running great up till then. It would act like it wanted to start but would not stay running.
After sitting for about 35 minutes, it started back up and run fine again. I'm thinking that it might be the fuel pump getting hot or going bad.
What is the newest or updated fuel pump for these bikes (part #) ?
Is there a aftermarket pump that is dependable?
Sounds exactly like a bad fuel pump.
The search function will reveal the aftermarket pump to purchase. The name eludes me right now. Something like CA cycle works?
Maybe it has something to do with you running semi-synth when the bike calls for full synth...
I've had a little goop on mine before, not quite like that though but I run Motorex 4t synthetic oil.
How many miles on it?
If you still have the old oil you could send it to Blackstone to be analyzed for pretty cheap to really know if something's wrong.
On another topic, my low fuel light came on when I was running low and now it won't go off. Filled it up quite a few times, still on. Unplugged the sensor, it goes off but comes back on when plugged back in.
Any other things I should try? Or do I need a new sensor? I'm going to just unplug it for now, I use the odometer to gauge my fuel mostly anyways, but if anyone has any suggestions that doesn't involve taking the tank(s) off let me know.
I'm all healed up (Thanks chief_lee_visceral!) and the Berg' is getting some proper use, it was getting tired of me riding around on pavement.
Mine went about a week ago. I purchased this CA Cycleworks pump. It is working just fine now. The OEM Pump is something like $525 and this one is a lot cheaper. The OEM and this one both is made in china, that's probably whats wrong with it. Not sure what else is out there. http://www.ktmtwins.com/ca-cycleworks-ktm-690-fuel-pump-upgrade
Oil was in 16 hours. Been changing regularly per spec but ran the Yamalube in there because I had it and read that it was ok.
The dealer just sold me Castro axcero (sp) 4T 10-50 semi and said that that's his shop oil for his customers and his Berg.
I had the motorex in hand and he said the castrol was more than OK spec-wise half the price.
So I'll try that and keep an eye on it. maybe next time I switch to the motorex.
I tried Yamalube 10-50 semi when I first got the bike. It shifted like crap, really didn't like the way the bike felt. It was only in the bike for an hour and a half or so. I have been running 20-50 amsoil and it seems to really like that.
it's like mars or the moon riding out here...
Nice! You out in Moab? Riding any specific trails, or just playing on slickrock?
Looks like a natural habitat for the Bergs!
Not mine and not affiliated. Talked to the guy and seemed pretty cool.
$350 for 70* subframe tank
Where would you go to get a new ignition key? Dealer?
Carabiner I carried my keys on my belt loop failed and just realized that my Berg key is gone!!!
Even worse I had just bought a new to me exhaust and want to try it out and can't!
You don't have a stock 2nd one to cut it from ?
The dealer can order, but they'll likely insist on you having your key number.
You can hotwire it with 1 wire or paperclip. search ktm ignition. here's one that may work, it is just whether the wire colors match.
Is my shifter tweaked?
Riding buddy said it was bad but I really haven't noticed
No, for some reason I only got one key from the dealer. Kept meaning to get another one made. Day late, dollar short!
I will try the hot wire for now, thanks!
Ya, just a tad! Lol.
The shifter thingy your boots hits should be parallel to the foot peg.
Got too jealous from reading this thread and finally caved, I bought myself a 2009 FE570 today. Rode great, had some suspension work done to it and a set of pivot pegs.
Now the bad news, I bring it home, and go through the typical maintenance routine of dropping the oil and cleaning the air filter for tomorrows inaugural ride. Found lots of coolant in the oil. I mean green oil.
Anyone have this happen before? In my last KTM I remember this was common from the water pump impeller shaft wearing down and the seal leaking. Hoping it's an easy fix I'm tempted to just refill fresh oil and take it out tomorrow. Might be the last ride of the season for me.
sounds like perhaps the weephole mod was never done and some crud has ruined the seal inside. heaps of info on this over at unofficial husaberg. start here.
thanks. I pulled the water pump cover off, sure enough the weephole was sealed shut with crud. Cleaned it out with some wire, flipped the water pump seal over which was backwards, and put everything back together. Took it for a long ride today with no leaks, hopefully when I drop the oil again it will be good.
Oh ya. this bike has got some JAM!
