Nah, but might be able to find it on ze Google...
There is a free 2009 version or you can buy a version that covers all years for $25 or less. Both are cheaper than guessing and buying parts.
I had to replace the ignition coil on my Husqvarna 250, it was doing weird intermittent things before it just finally died, run/wouldn't run. Left us stranded about 30 miles from home. Funny part, couldn't order them any more. My buddy Richard (the EE) sent me one of the many spares he bought for his SV650 (he was developing quickshifter) after deciding they were same type. Worked perfectly. Coil could certainly be an intermittent problem, I tested it just like shown above.
Took the left side radiator off and looked at the coil ... Tested resistance and got nothin'.
"Coils bad then?"
Took off the right side radiator and found the culprit:
That wire is disconnected.
My theory? The pump may have failed, sure, or maybe it didn't ... But at some point while pulling the tank off, this wire was in a bundle that got pulled and unhooked itself.
It's always something stupid! :)
I plugged it back in, zip-tied it to the coil, and put it back together ...
Fired right up like nothing was ever wrong.
I'm officially content for the week.
Thanks for everyone's encouragement and guidance. Turns out sometimes you just don't see the obvious issue!
Oh my, but happens to everybody. Even if the fueling components weren't the issue, I think everyone would agree that replacing and servicing all that stuff was good and now you should be good for 100s hours.
There she is, boys n' girls. Back together.
Just ripped it up the street...dangerous.
Last hoorah from it was the clutch not disengaging fully - shot of mineral oil and she's good as new.
Might take it out tomorrow, still busy with work! Weekend for sure...
Another 115.0 miles on the dot and no low fuel light. I'm really digging the 390 and its fuel sipping...
Skid plate looks good
How in the hell do you get 115 miles on a tank? I get 85-95 before light.
speaking of skid plates, this showed up the other day.
leave the bulb out......
I ordered skid plate in blue also, still waiting.
It is documented now, actual dirt on the fender of Jdubb's pristine monument to Husawesomeness
This was almost all riding country roads. If I were in the trails I would expect it would go down. I wish I would've taken my fuel bottle with me so I could see just how far it'll go.
It get's a little dirty every now and then.
Last time I knowingly tested my reserve range....w/ stock tank only,
From the time the fuel light came on, I covered 12 more pavement miles holding 45-50 mph steadily snaking up and down a rural road up in the ozarks until we found a gas station.
All loaded up, heading to the National Forest for the weekend:

I cheated....a deal I couldn't pass up. 2018 350 XC-F
So you n’ Ferris inspired me get out and ride!
These were about the only background trees available for a photo op out here.
Sorry it’s not a Berg, but the mirrors are off of my old FE650e and the hand guards were on my TE300.
I washed the bike this evening and started it to idle for a bit after I blew most of the water off. After about a minute of idling the low fuel light lit up. So, I guess 115 miles is about the limit before the light comes on.
