just picked up 03' husaberg fs 650

I'm totally stoked about my new toy. Just picked it up today, bummed though because it snowed 8 inches up here in Canada. I have a question though did the 03'come with a dual ignition curve. And could you let be know of any problem areas to keep an eye on. Any help would be much :cry: appreciated :cry::cry:

Yes, they had a dual ignition curve. The 2004 and 2005 models changed to a Kukosen igniton and don't have the hi-lo switch.

The 2003 engines have a much improved oiling system for better engine reliability and durability. For sustained high engine rpm operation, we run 1.25 liter of oil instead of the 1 liter as speced in the manual. The extra oil helps keep things cooler and the added oil doesn't hurt the engine performance.

Be sure to follow the 3 hour recommended first oil change and valve adjustment. Then it's every 10 hours after that. You should have received a liter of oil and filter for that first oil change. Then go to Scott's Perfomance and get the reusable stainless steel filter.

You should go to


join that forum and you will get all the info and help you need for maintaining and enjoying your new Husaberg.


The great white north. Yes the snow has fallen. I am assuming you are in AB. Check out the UHE site as Brianc recommends, best place for info.

Nothing you should know besides regular oil changes with a good oil like motorex or Amsoil 20/50. Adj the valves every ten hrs until you get a feel for their movement.

I have rode 501's since 01 and you will have hrs of riding bliss. I rode a FE550 in Poland at ISDE and it was a gem.

best of luck

      Hello to all the Husaberg owners and Thumper Talk members. As stated in an earlier thread by one of the TT admins, Brian Bosch, we "may" have an opportunity to get out of the "exotics" portion of TT and get our very own area to post and reply with Husaberg questions/comments!
      If you are a TT memeber and a Husaberg owner, let's get this rolling and see if there are enough of us! Let's try and do just one (1) post each so they can get an accurate count. Just simply state if you are a Husaberg owner, year and model.
      I will start this off......
      I am a proud owner!

      For the last couple of years I have been riding a Yamaha DT175 (RT180). It has been a great bike to gain experience in and it is as reliable as a wood burning stove. At the end of last year, I was looking into getting a new bike and started out with big bore two strokes. After test riding some of them, I found them too brutal in the bush, as I ride technical single trail. Yes, the torque is lovely at some times but after 5 hours of riding, it is actually a burden. As a result, I did not pull the trigger on either the te300 or wr250 which were my main choices. After watching the local GasGas races, I saw that the first 4 positions were held by Husaberg riders, and all in 125's. This made me consider the smallest of the husaberg lineup. I just finished a 1 day enduro on one of these bikes and frankly, I'm in love. There is good low end, never forgetting it is still a 125 and when on the pipe it is just mental. It has much more usable power than the 250's and 300's and that is why I have decided to pull the trigger. If there are any exc 125/200 or te 125 owners, any feedback on setting the bike up will be immensely appreciated. Any thoughts on the 125's?
