It realy depends on what you want, I personaly would keep the 300, cheeper maintenance and a proven track record. The berg is a good bike and a good company but to me the FX hasnt bean proven to be a great bike orall.

If your 300 is allready dialed in, your allready on probubly the best bike you can buy!.:thumbsup:

I just bought a new '10 FX 450 and the bike is great. It feels really light on the trails and the track, very much like a 2 stroke. I've owned 300's before and will again, great bikes. I got the Berg for $5800 new last month, so it was worth it for me.

So far I am very happy with the bike. Once you are moving it feels like a much lighter bike. I came of an '07 KTM 450 EXC, so much of the bike is the same as far as build quality. The FX has the closed cartridge forks like the XC models. The rear shock is easy to remove, but you can't adjust the preload without removing it. The only things I have done to it are set the preload, put on EE hand guards, an EE bar riser, and an FMF Q4 exhaust. The FX does not come with a spark arrestor and I could not find a screen to fit. The power is great and I like having a closer ratio trans for trails. First is a little high for really tight stuff, but sixth goes way beyond where I want to ride. The power is great, no MX hit but much more than my 450 EXC. :thumbsup:

I'd do that trade in a heartbeat. I really like the new Bergs.

+1. I sold my KTM 300 XC-W and bought a FE570. While the 570 is more versitile and I do like it alot, my next bike will be a 300 2 stroke.

I feel the same as MrSmooth, I have a FX450 and I think I'm going to go back to a 2-stroke but I'm thinking another 250. I really hope KTM brings the new 6day 250EXC to Canada!! That bike is dead sexy, and I REALLY have my fingers crossed the Husaberg brings the TE250/TE300 to NA and they have the new KTM frames! Then I'd be in heaven.

      My 390 looked as though the shift shaft was leaking oil after a couple hours of riding. The shifter got stuck in the downward position and was unable to move or come up. After taking out the screw that threads through the middle of the shift shaft, then putting it back in, i was able to shift fine. I will be checking tonight if the splines on the shift shaft are worn down. Has anyone had this issue before?

      As the title suggests, I've been debating the idea of throwing in a high compression piston. It will bump the compression in my 2014 KTM 350 XC-F from 13.5:1 to 14:1. First and foremost my main question is, because I live under 1000 ft and usually run 97 octane REC gas, will I have to change the fuel I run or not? Also, will I have to change out the cams to aftermarket and re-time the whole motor and ignition? I guess I really don't know what to expect so any advice will definitely help! Attached below is a photo of the bike I plan on putting it in.

      Hey guys,
       
      My mechanic says my crank rod bearing is bad on my 2013 Husaberg TE 250.  I'm browsing http://www.hotrodsproducts.com/ProductInfo.aspx?item_id=5626 and I see this kit that is compatible with 2008 - 2011 KTM 250 EXC BIKE,2008 - 2011 KTM 250 MXC BIKE,2008 - 2014 KTM 250 XC BIKE,2008 - 2014 KTM 250 XC-W BIKE
       
      Is that compatible with my bike?
       
      Let me know,
       
      thanks!

      Does anyone know how to, or if you can, change your AMA number? The race number, not the full thing.

      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!
      2010 Husaberg FE450
