I have been riding a FE 390 for the last two years and have it!

My faithful Swedish Girlfriend now has 2400 miles and 136 hours on and has *never* missed a beat. cold, wet, muddy, no And the fuel injection just

Heck, even did a 5-day trip with Baja Adventures on the annual Hooters on ride with zero Which is great to be able to say you are in the middle of BFE and watching someone gas into your bike out of an old jug. ^)

Plus, I love how the Husaberg is on the trails and the power is *perfect* for me. I also want to major thanks to Rick at Boss Offroad Services (BOSS) for all his great support and I highly recommend his shop and if you’re interested in the Husaberg

But then this last I entered the Lone Wolf in the Tillamook National Forest year and an idea got planted in my brain. The Lone Wolf is one of the tougher races in our area and I myself wishing that I had a bit bike for some of the really sections. I thought how cool it be to have a direct-injected two-… for tight races like the Wolf and Devil’s Head

But the rumored DI-2T ship may arrive at the rate they’re LOL. I also thought about regular two-strokes but care for mixing my gas, the and the peaki(er) power bands. yes, yes. please the cards and letters.

I grew up and racing and loving two-smokes. But and the smooth 4T power band is works best for me these

Then KTM announced their new KTM 350 EXC-F. Fuel-injected, 10-12 lbs than Inga, electric *and* kick starter. AND street-legal. oo-o-o-hhhh.

Thought a while about trading in the power band of Inga for a bit race bike. But to make the even harder — I that I couldn’t afford to two dirt bikes. In the ideal I would love to keep my as my dedicated dual-sport bike, riding, and going to Baja. but I can’t.

So that made the even harder to make.

But the heck. It’s a proven that none of us is going to get out of alive and no one knows when their time to leave the So bingo-bango-bongo . say hello to my little

Now, for anyone that has following the story fuel-injection introduced into the dirt world. it has been a bumpy here and there for all of the dirt manufacturers. You can get away with dirty, ethanol gas on a carby But that kind of stuff wreaks havoc on fuel and fuel injectors with little spray orifices.

And for that know me well. I. tend to be a little on the paranoid/preventive of bike set-up and maintenance. maybe a lot. (grin). But

It’s no fun pushing your bike 10 miles over nasty trails!

So I proposed an with one of my local KTM dealers, Hillsboro (MH). First a little history here. I bought a boat-load of bikes MH over many years and have come to know me well.

For example, I worked closely them and KTM through the ’08 de-compressor (ADC) issue and up with a documented solution.

So agreed to let me pick up my bike in the and do all the initial setup and PDI by myself! was primarily so that I could the gas tank and flush out any bad stuff the bike was ever started. So I am grateful to the trust shown me by Russell and Nick Schreiber at Hillsboro.

Okay, okay, I’m rambling again. I But I think it’s important to set the

The point of this post is to a ‘brandy-new’ Katoom from Day 1 all the way break-in and riding.

I will be all of the set-up procedures and tips I have accumulated over the through personal trial-n-error well, that didn’t very well) and the fantastic of information from all of the riders and builders on KTMTalk.com. I will be documenting what I think are the aftermarket additions and bling for bike.

Not every one will agree some of these set-ups tips. but they are the ones have worked best for me many, many years of and all are proven. One other thing. A LOT of the will seem to be *VERY* to most experienced riders and

But one of the reasons that I am doing at such a basic and detailed is for all those brand-new motorcycle who have just joined our and can use all the help they can get. is my way of helping pay back all those who helped me out when I started KTMs and Husabergs.

So. Shall we get started? Good. ^)
