    450 -> 570 start issues

    I wish I could help you I think though your piston is for a 570 I wonder what you deck height is? with the 450 crank. if that is ok? I think the only thing you can do is put in a 570 cam shaft.

    Buying a Berg a bad idea?

    A new KTM is 10.500$ thats a lot of cash. The husaberg is a ktm with blue plastic body. it sound like a good deal. Ktm single cam engines are very strong engines that wear well. I have 3 Husabergs that have the 70 degree engine. they re great bikes. But those motors are very different than the KTM the same year. You won't have any problems with parts It is just a blue KTM!!!

    What's this worth

    It looks like a good bike. I have 3 late model 2010 Husabergs. 2 fx 450's and a fe 390. these are 70 degree motors. KTM engineering very strong product! I do not have any experience with this earlier model. By 2001 KTM had changed over to the much better ignition. I would love to try out your bike.These bikes where famous for there power and handling and light weight. These bikes made the way for ktm rfs Racing Four Stroke Engines.What did you pay for this?

    know nothing about bergs....fe390 setup for mx?

    I have 3 Husabergs. 2 fx 450"s great torque. Different steering then my FE 390. The 390 ECU is lean and mild EPA legal. I send mine to fun mart in Moline Ill. They reflashed the ECU and when i put it on my bike it had twice the power.I did not have to rev it up to get that pull. It was "the european enduro map". I would very much recommend this mod!!!! I also put on a FMF slip on muffler.It is a great bike. It feels 30 pounds lighter than the FX 450 but it cannot be!!!! all the parts are the same except the crankshaft. Fx 450 has a longer stroke!!!

    450 FE Map and Diagnostics

    I sent my ECU on my 2010 fe 390 to fun mart and the flashed a new racing map. I worked great. Gave the bike great low end and over rev!!! The stock fuel map was way lean. Very doggy!!! Fun mart did this for 50$. they are in Illinois.

    On going OEM support?

    I have a 2010 fe 390 and a 2010 fx 450 Husaberg and love them both. I would love to buy the 570 if you ever find one!!! there is a youtube video of a austrailian who says he has 15,000 km on his 570 Husaberg and has yet to rebuild!!I think Wisco may make a piston kit for them so a OEM parts and synthech oil are my plan!!!
