    Wow, very nice build rally bike, but can you still do the 2010 Dakar in this one, since it is 450cc max (or 660 with a restrictor)?? It is a shame not to see a bikle like this cruising the giant dunes in Chile.

    Gday, Your FE looks choice.
    Can you give me a quick review on the new Ohlins damper, Ive just bought one for my 450FE and I'd like to know how they compare to the older Scotts.
    Also do you intend to service the Ohlins yourself, how do you change the oil? I've been told it has to go back to a dealer, and at the recommended 20 hour service interval, as far as I'm concerned thats not on!
    Thanks for any feedback..Sav

    Love your work Mr Berg, preparation is the key to any good result and you and the team look as though you have knuckled down and are putting in the hard yards to get these bikes humming. Good luck with the rallies and hope you can give the jap bikes a touch up.
    The husabergs are lookin good and even better in rally trim. Good luck guys :clap

    Hey Berg, For more gain consider getting in touch with Wayne McDonald from Tuneboy. He does a lot of work remapping KTM ECU's. Once he has a base map of your ECU he then can upload various maps via a connectible cable and laptop which you have stored maps. The guy is a genius and can also address fuel maps etc. He can spread the torque, make it more linear down low and certainly fine tune to any pipe and header mods you have doen to the bike. Only problem is he is in Sydney.

    Cheers

    Steve

    thanks for that.

    Richie Nyhouse the team head mechanic is in Melbourne and is talking to Richard Muurling of Vortex ignition etc along similar lines, but I will keep Wayne in mind as well.

    I was talking to richard from Vortex the other day , he add allredy started is KTM injection project ,( he owns a 690motard) i believe the Berg & KTM are the same type ECU's I think ,the 690's have more bullshit hanging off the injection ( fly by wire butterfly valve )

    If more people show interest he will get craking , he is currectly working on RMZ, KXF

    the Berg & 690 injector is the same part, ECU likely to be very similar as well.

    The "Flush mount LED blinkers courtesy of CPW Safari" what brand are they? I've been looking around for something similar and they are the best looking example I've seen, a brand name or part number would make it easy to track down over this side of the country
    Has CPW got a web site?

    Are you using the flush mounts for the front and rear indicators? I tried wiring them up today using the DRC LED flasher unit to find that there wasnt enough resistance for the system to realise they were there and thus flashed all 4 indicators!

    Whats your setup?

    I used them front and rear and replaced the standard flasher relay with one that SuperCheap had on sale the other week. Works a treat:clap . I have noticed that if only the front or only the rear are connected the remaining ones do not work at all.

    Or give the shop a ring because he's going on holiday for the week so the shop will have to look after you.
    (08) 9434 1653 WST.
    The shop is Cycle Products West.

    I bought mine from KTM-Parts.com. I'll go and find the packet and let you know what brand they are but CPW's price is good and he has heaps of them in stock because his new order just came in.

    I spoke to Wayne and he reckons he can apply multiple maps to the Berg for different riding conditions. The difference is he re flashes the ECU at each throttle position rather than say a Vortex where it corrects the ECU. He has already flashed a mates 690 with some success. You could have a map for hard racing, a map for snotty trail where you want the throttle less peaky and more linear and you could even have a map for economy for the transport legs. Ahhh.. The magic of Fuel injection :wink:

    The 690 map switch has a heap of unused positions after #3 on the dial. I assume all of these could be assigned a different map. Just need to get that switch on the handlebars somehow.

    After trying out the programs that are available, you can really notice the difference. I have the Akra map in mine now and it's better than standard one. The #1 position really slows the throttle response right down. it feels like a slug but has a definite purpose in really greasy conditions. I haven't tried the #0 position yet - bad fuel supposedly. Wonder what that does..

    I'll be extending the map switch cable to handle bar mount or next to the ignition key if possible , I'll let you know how i go, ( hoping just to make a double ended cable with the same connections a simple plug and play , ) but hours of work to make the bloody thing ,
