Ok. i registered here to at least save others off my worries.

I own a 450FE 2010 after 6 successful problem free years of owning the old 2004 version of Husabergs.

to clear this out

This needs to be said. the old Husaberg is unbeatable when it comes to trail riding. No bike has ever come remotely close to its handling and its error corrections. you simply survive on mistakes you wouldn’t survive with any other stiff bike.

The throttle response cannot be compared to EFI or the way the new Husaberg loves to climb or wheelie but try installing a Powerball on the FCR and an open filter (KN, DNA) and you will notice a very close to EFI response.

So, KTM actually destroyed these bikes by buying over the company which is a smart thing to do. Sad for us Husb lovers but the way things are. Can’t blame the manager for creating global dominion 🙂

The new Husb is experimental. I have heard around that the engine will not be produced again in 2013 by KTM.

Only blue KTM’s will be produced (2stroke Bergs). Unfortunately i did not hear this before i buy it. I waited for two years for any problems to come around and i bought the 2010 model.

so. the fuel pump is a SERIOUS problem NOT to be taken lightly! But not a reason NOT to buy the bike. i will explain myself 🙂

The exhaust on the new design passes right under (and in a closed area) the tank.

This results in heating of the fuel which (taking the degradation of horsepower out of the discussion) creates a big problem.

It warms up your pump.

The pump is located in a plastic casing and there is no insulation from the fuel. The chinese building it (Dont fall for the CaCycleworks pump being made in California. It prints Made in china at the bottom instead of the default!) have paid very close attention to NOT care for heat expansion therefore, when the fuel gets hot the fins of the pump are touching the walls of the inner casing causing friction, leading to failure and a lot of black residue on the filter (remnants of your old pump repeller which now needs changing)

I have purchased the extra tank (the rear frame tank) so as to use the aluminum casing that comes with it. This could be a simple fix to a seemingly enormous problem! As long as i remember not to full the tank up because i will need a crane to lift the bike 🙂

My pump blew at exactly 100 hours and before i register for a 5 day event the new (CaCycleworks) pump failed me after an additional 24 hours of use and on the 3rd day of the race.

You will notice some hesitation of the bike when the pump has expanded. if you notice this and dont throttle up, instead allow the bike to relatively cool (hard to cool a 4 stroke i know) you can save it .

I have come to the conclusion that it all comes down to how you use the bike. if you are not a competitive racer you might never eexperience problems. But when it comes to racing and abusing the bike the pump is going to fail you! period!

Now, if you are a professional who is able to carry spares with him and change them after a couple of race days (official pump retail price :250eu ,CaPumpworks costs half but comes without the high pressure harness) this is a HELL of a bike to ride

It will help you up the most impossible hills. as long as you don’t have to pick it up often (engine design has brought the weight up at the center so lifting the bike you lift the whole weight of its engine)

I am selling my awesomeberg if i dont fix this

i need a lighter bike anyway!

i hope this saves people from troubles!
