    Educate me!

    I took this 2009 husaberg FE450 in on trade for my ktm I sold recently and really don’t know anything about it. The bike seems to have some nice upgrades but I’m really not sure what something like this is worth. I will likely end up selling or trading the bike because I’m really after the new ktm 300 TPI. Can you guys give me an idea of what this bike should sell for? I know these bikes have a bit of a cult following.
    Here are the upgrades I know about -

    New battery
    New D606 (150 miles)
    MT16 up front with 90%
    Radiator guards
    Ceramic header and mid pipe (no boiling gas issues)
    Heat shield
    Radiator Fan
    Aftermarket coolant hoses
    Trailtech headlight
    Baja designs buttons on the bars
    Cycra Hand guards
    Renthal High Fat bars
    Powdercoated cases
    70deg subframe tank with small hole that needs to be patched.

    Bike has 4350 miles and about 225 hours on it. I’ll need to double check!

    Thanks for any info you all can provide! This bike is sweet!

    It’s not a 1999, it’s a 2009.

    How many hours / mileage on the bike? So, you have the subframe tank, plus the OEM subframe?

    Yes I have the subframe tank and the oem subframe. It’s got 4350 miles and about 225 hours on it I believe.

    Adrian,
    It's an awesome bike. Take it for a spin, you probably won't want to sell it. These are really special machines.
    Where are you/the bike located?

    I’m in Atlanta Georgia! I went ahead and listed it for $3900 as I felt that was a good deal for someone

    Well, I just spent an hour reading through this forum and now I’m leaning towards keeping the dang thing. Seems like it’s a pretty great bike! I just don’t know anything about them lol

    Welp, no luck with my FE570.

    Finally finished swapping new:

    - Cacycleworks fuel pump
    - Injector
    - zip ty racing filter
    - fuel filter, hoses
    - Lithium battery
    - Fresh gas

    Still just sits and tries to crank. When I press to prime the pump, I get 49 psi. It then drops down after priming to 0 psi. When you push to start it, it jumps up to about 43 and then goes to 0 psi. Have no idea if that's normal or not, can't find info anywhere. Probably isn't.

    FI light flashes. Bike won't start.

    No clue. Really demoralized.

    Fuel pressure regulator? Mine failed recently.

    I believe that flashing sequence is indicative of specific error types. I dont have the guide for what those represent, but someone here likely does. Maybe a good place to start.

    No idea. If anyone can confirm their bike holds pressure and it doesn't drop, I'll replace it, but I can't keep throwing parts at it randomly.

    If anyone can confirm their pressure during priming and starting (does it hold around 45-50 at all times?) I'd appreciate it because so far it's been all guesses, none of which were right.

    A husaberg.org thread says:

    4x long, 5x short = Lambda sensor heater circuit
    9x short = Manifold absolute pressure sensor
    1x long, 3x short = Intake air temperature
    1x long, 2x short = Engine coolant temperature sensor
    6x short = Throttle position sensor
    1x long, 7x short = Lambda sensor
    3x long, 3x short = Injector
    2x short = Crankshaft position sensor
    3x long, 7x short = Ignition coil
    1x long, 5x short = Rollover sensor
    4x long, 1x short = Fuel pump relay

    Mine APPEARS to be doing 3 long, 7 short but it's hard to tell because the ecu cuts off. but that'd be my guess.

    So that should mean it should have no spark? Does it mean the ignition coil is shot, or it means it's not got spark because the plug is?

    If it's a coil I'm not even sure what to do there...Haven't even looked into that....

    Yes when the pressure regulator fails it pressurizes the fuel tank. Easy fix with aftermarket regulators available.

    Would I be able to feel that through the fuel cap hole by placing my hand over it with the cap off and priming it? It does seem like it's just leaking the pressure so... *shrug*

    Also the ignition coil fault code... I mean what are the odds both are bad....

    Looks like a new coil, plug & wire, and regulator is around $120. So at least it's not murder to do it if that's what the case is.

    I'm dyin' from parts bills.

    There should be a test procedure for the ignition coil. Have a close looks at its wiring and all grounding locations. How did everything else in the fuel tank look when you pulled it apart? If there were signs of o-ring/plastic degradation in other areas I would suspect the regulator or the its sealing o-ring.

    Everything in the tank should be good. Looked fine and replaced what was replaced. Hoses, filter, pump and all that. I'm not really worried about anything in there except maybe the regulator now...

    I'll have to look at how to test the coil...

    Do you have a copy of the Service Manual?
