power mods for husaberg 450 fe

Recommended Posts

I am still breaking in my 450. I am just getting used to the bike and the power it puts out. It is a bit mild ,as I am used to mx bikes hit. any reccomends for getting a bit more out of this bike? It is stone stock. I do like the quiet sound It has,and am very pleased with the bike. I just wish I wasnt working 6 days a week so i can ride it more.

It came with the racing map. I took the ball check out of the gas cap. I need to locate the breather tube that is routed to the air box and remove that.

The map loaded in the ECU is not the same thing as the map switch. The map switch is a 3-position switch that selects "soft", "standard", or "aggressive" ignition timing. When you start the bike the ECU senses the resitor value selected by the switch and selects one of the 3 timing maps. The switch is only examined when you start the bike, so you can't switch it on the fly.

Call Richard at http://www.houseofhorsepower.com, he made the FE450 RIP. Some exhaust stuff like a head pipe inversion cone and a few other things really wakes the bike up if thats what your looking for.

I suppose it is the same as a harley fi system. It comes with a pre programed setting. A stock harley is set for 14.7/1 ratio. This is lean for emissions. I donno if the berg is a closed loop or open. But I asked for the competition map setting as they called it at cliffs cycles. The thing seems so much faster when i leave the pavement!

If you want more power, the best way is to swap the 450 for a 570

The shop that sold me the bike said they installed the competition map as I asked. I still have the screen in the muffler in, I red loctited it! I was just looking for free power info. I really havent made the full 4 st to 2 st conversion. mayby I need to take my kx 250 for a beat run?

I'd change the gearing for more power. Try a 51 rear maybe. Pipe will get you a little, more of a weight savings IMO. An aggressive throttle cam will put you a little farther back on the seat too. Better rear tire too?ha

Removal of the screen at the end of the muffler will provide a little extra power. Note that this screen is not the spark arrestor.

I removed the screen on my 570 and it just made it pop on deceleration. I put it back in.

      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
