There is an upgraded part for the air filter wall available from Husaberg.

I have replaced a couple for customers under warranty on the 2 smokers , no problem.

Seems like almost every new model, no matter what brand has a few small issues to sort out.

Later,

I am curious how this merge will effect the current Husqvarna dealers? One of the dealers I do business with currently sells Husqvarna and Beta. He use to sell TM and Husaberg as well. TM was too hard to sell to the local public due to the high cost. Husaberg he had to stop selling because of some sort of clause that the dealers have to use KTM financing. Which means he would also have to sell KTMs and that KTM Corporate did not need another KTM dealer in the area at that time? It was something to that effect anyway and even though he sold Bergs like hot cakes, he had to pull them off his floor.

So if KTM is now in charge of the Husqvarna brand, which is good for us as consumers who want great product, I wonder if the wrighting is on the wall for "smaller" dealers such as the one I described? I am really hoping this does not hinder his buisness. He is a really good guy and I really prefer the "mom and pop" dealers who treat you right as opposed to the "mega giant" dealers who forget who you are as soon as you leave the shop.

Funny how things happen sometimes. As soon as I typed this, I received a mast distributed e-mail from KTM stating this in the body....

An all new Husqvarna lineup is in the works to be debuted in October, 2013 and will include Enduro, Motocross, Sportminicycles and Supermoto segments. The new group company "Husqvarna Sportmotorcycle GmbH will be operational in Mattighofen, Austria as of October 2013. It appears all Husqvarna dealers will be retained and all Husaberg dealers will become Husqvarna dealers.

I really hope this is true! :thumbsup:

Nice, we'll go from zero dealers with bikes within a couple of hundred miles to zero dealers with bikes within a couple of hundred miles. :banghead:

I want a TE300 to replace the GasGas 300.

I love my GasGas but absolutely DESPISE Marzocchi forks. Absolutely NOBODY seems to be able to valve these things.

I have a 2007 which seems to be one of the best years. GG has been having a number of QC issues lately. My GG is pretty much beat to death and I'm looking for another 300. It may well turn out to be another GG.

Then I guess your in luck. Now the news is that 2014 will be the last year of Husaberg. Better grab your TE300 early!
