  1. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Colton Haaker put the finishing touches to a near faultless 2017 SuperEnduro campaign at the final round in Albi, France to wrap up a second straight FIM title.
  2. Battling his way through a challenging weekend of racing at the sandy track of Lommel, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Gautier Paulin has wrapped up round 14 of the 2017 FIM Motocross World Championship claiming fifth overall in the MXGP class. Delivering a solid performance in Belgium, Thomas Kjer-Olsen placed fifth overall in the MX2 category.
  3. Okay, so I've been researching and craigslist/eBay surfing for about 3 weeks straight, and I've settled on these three. Now for some details: Husky - 2008 TE510 (Street Legal) $3550 asking price Approximately 120 hours; forks have been overhauled to fix persistent seal leaks; replaced faulty stock odometer; claims that there are no EFI or electrical problems The guy said he checked the valves 500 miles ago and they were perfect. Recent oil change, has the Arrow exhaust. This bike comes with both a supermoto wheel/tire/rotor set and a dirt set, in addition to extra plastics, extra shifter, oil filter, lights/blinkers, extra 3 gal tank, extra sprockets, extra batteries, stand and loading ramp, etc. --- tons of extras. This is also the only bike I will be able to see physically as it's the only one even remotely close to me. I have heard these bikes have bad rod bearings and it's just a matter of time until they let go. I've also heard of all the electrical gremlins and EFI problems. Yamaha - 2006 WR450F (Not Street Legal) ~$3750 with shipping This bike belongs to a member on advrider who would be willing to ship. This one has 0 hours on a fresh top end rebuilt by "race engine tech" plus new valve springs. Rebuilt and cleaned carb with JD jet kit, revalved forks and shock, new brake pads, several other farkles. This one is not currently street legal, so I would have to go through the process to set it up for D/S. Pretty much the only downside to this one as far as I can tell. KTM - 2005 450EXC (Street Legal) ~$3750 with shipping This one is being sold on eBay by a guy who owns a small motorcycle repair/renovation shop. Verified VIN, have spoken with him on the phone -- seems to be legit. This one has been completely gone over by his shop. Adjusted valves, rebuilt forks (stock specs), greased bearings, new brake pads, 'ultrasonically cleaned' carburetor, custom skid plate, custom LED headlight and mount. A few other things but you get the gist. The engine is stock as far as I can tell. The guy made a video of the bike running and riding around. The engine sounds great, no weird noises or anything. Definitely seems to be as advertised. SO... What would you guys do here? I like the idea of the tappet valve adjustments on the KTM. I like the fuel injection on the Husky. I like the completely new top end on the Yamaha. They all sort of speak to me in one way or another. I'm afraid of the longevity of the Husky, and parts availability, but I'm tempted to go that way just because I will be able to test ride it first, something I won't be able to do for either the KTM or the Yamaha. I plan to do mostly trail riding, but the only trails near me are about 20 miles of pavement away. I like the idea of not having to trailer the bike, but I am not looking for a bike that will amaze me with its road capabilities. I also am planning to do a week long, 500-750 mile trail ride sometime this summer. I'd like to do more adventurous rides like this from time to time, but most of the time I will be just taking day trips to nearby trails. What do you guys think? PS Sorry this got incredibly long, but I've really been wracking my brain on this one. Thanks in advance for any help! EDIT: Oops, forgot there is also a 2012 KTM 450XC-W with rekluse/rad guards/steering dampener/radiator fan and only 30 hours on a top end rebuild only about an hour away from me. He's asking $4200 which is a bit out of my budget, but it may be worth it to stretch for such a newer bike? I would also have to convert it to street legal, though, so it seems like this one would end up being way more expensive overall.
  4. April 2, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – American MX2 star Thomas Covington has claimed an impressive overall MX2 class win at the GP of Leon, collecting a fourth place result and a race win at the rough Mexican track. In what was a great GP for Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing, Gautier Paulin earned a podium result getting third overall in MXGP class. Confident of strong results at a track where the American had earned his first GP victory in 2015, Covington didn’t fail to deliver in Leon. The weekend started with Thomas getting a convincing qualifying race win to place himself on pole position for MX2’s final motos. Getting a good jump out of the gate in the opening moto, Covington found himself in sixth at the end of the first lap. Making some crucial passes he crossed the line fourth. With his FC 250 machine powering him to the holeshot in moto two, Thomas made a smart and well-calculated race. Following Pauls Jonass for the first six laps, he made a successful move for the lead on lap seven and never looked back. Earning 43 points from the GP of Leon Covington climbed to eighth in the provisional MX2 championship standings. Making the most out of a challenging GP, Covington’s Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing MX2 teammate Thomas Kjer-Olsen wrapped up round four of the series with a seventh place overall result. Starting both motos outside the top 10 the FC 250 mounted rider had to push hard to collect two seventh place results in Leon. Earning valuable points Kjer-Olsen remains fifth in the MX2 championship standings. Following tough times during the last few rounds Conrad Mewse sat out of the Mexican GP. The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing MX2 rider will return to action at the following round of the series in Italy. In the MXGP category, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Gautier Paulin enjoyed a solid weekend of racing in Mexico. The Frenchman kicked off a highly positive round four with a strong runner-up result in the qualifying race. Capitalising on a great start in the opening MXGP moto Gautier found himself fighting for the runner-up spot, before eventually settling for a strong third place result. Getting an even better start in moto two Paulin put himself in third at the end of the opening lap. Successfully defending his place until the end of the race, he wrapped up the GP with one more third place result to get on the MXGP podium for the first time this season. Earning important championship points Paulin moved to fifth in the class’ points standings. The GP of Leon saw Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Max Nagl battle through a challenging race weekend to claim eighth overall in MXGP class. Showing good speed in both motos the German collected 7/8 moto results and is currently placed ninth in the MXGP provisional standings. For Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Max Anstie the GP of Leon was an event of mixed fortunes. Earning third in the MXGP qualifying race the Brit was confident of positive results in the final motos. Making a small mistake after the start of the opening moto Anstie pushed hard to finish the race in ninth. Getting a better start in moto two the Brit suffered a crash that forced him to settle for 13th. The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team will return to action at round five of the 2017 FIM Motocross World Championship in Italy on April 15/16. Thomas Covington: “It was one of the best GPs of my career. I felt good throughout the weekend and that helped me stay focused and do my own races. Following our qualifying race win we had a great gate pick for the final motos. I didn’t get the best of starts in moto one but got my head down and managed to get fourth. My start was a lot better in moto two. I got the holeshot and soon found myself in second behind Jonass. I spotted some good lines and was able to make my move for the lead a few laps later. Winning the second moto and getting the overall victory is a great confidence booster. We had a rough start to this championship but things are a lot better now. I’m looking forward to the races to come.” Thomas Kjer-Olsen: “It was a difficult weekend but we did our best to collect points for the championship. We struggled a bit with the track and the high altitude but worked hard and made progress during the weekend. My starts were not good so I had to push hard in both motos. In the first race I went as high as sixth but made a small mistake before the end and had to settle for seventh. Then again in moto two I was outside the top ten at the end of lap one. I made some passes and got seventh again for seventh overall at the GP. Despite tough conditions we collected valuable points and remain fifth in the MX2 championship standings. We’re heading to Europe now and we will keep fighting to go even higher in the standings.” Gautier Paulin: “Everything is coming together for us and it feels really rewarding to get on the podium. We’ve made big improvements with the bike and I’ve also managed to improve my starts. We were strong throughout the weekend in Mexico. From the time practice to the qualifying heat and the final motos we were always inside the top three. In moto one I made a good start and managed to cross the line in third. My start was even better in moto two. Despite feeling a bit tired I managed to get a good race pace to end up third again. I can’t thank all my team enough for all their hard work. I’m having fun on my bike at the moment and our goal now is to consistently battle for the podium at each GP.” Max Nagl: “It was a tough GP for us and I’m glad we managed to salvage some good points. I feel that all the travelling we’ve done this season has affected my body and I felt tired throughout the weekend. Despite a not so great gate pick I got two good starts. In moto one I was running in fourth before eventually dropping to seventh. Then in moto two I was again running close to the top but had to settle for eighth. The work continues for us and I can’t wait to get back to Europe for the next GPs. I’m looking forward to returning to our normal training and racing schedule. I know the speed is there so it’s up to me now to show we can battle for the top.” Max Anstie: “Overall, I’m satisfied with my performance. I rode strong and showed the speed is there. The weekend started quite well with a top three in the qualifying heat. In moto one I was a bit too eager to get a good start so made a small mistake after the gate dropped. I made some good passes during the moto to end up inside the top ten in ninth. Then in moto two I was running in sixth but made a mistake and crashed. My bike works very well and I’m confident we’re moving towards the right direction. It was great Gautier got on the podium and I’m hoping we’ll have more than one Husqvarna machines on the box in the following GPs.” Results – FIM Motocross World Championship, Round 4 MXGP – Overall 1.

  5. http://racerxonline.com/2018/06/06/phil-nicoletti-to-fill-in-at-rockstar-energy-husqvarna When Jason Anderson went down after a practice crash last week at Glen Helen, he joined his Rockstar Energy Husqvarna 450 teammate Dean Wilson on the sidelines. With both 450 riders out, Rockstar Husky team manager Bobby Hewitt told us the team would have to get a replacement. Hewitt mentioned quite a few wild cards to us—such as factory Husqvarna riders from the GPs during a few off weekends, or former team riders. The final answer is surprising—it's Phil Nicoletti, who, up until now, was racing for Autotrader/Yoshimura Suzuki. Phil, though, was only a fill-in for the team, and fill-in roles in Lucas Oil Pro Motocross have become a specialty for the New Yorker. He was apparently able to get out of his JGR deal and is now part of the Husqvarna squad for the remainder of the summer. Nicoletti is currently seventh in 450 Class points. “I am happy to have the opportunity to finish out the Pro Motocross season with the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team," Phil said in a Rockstar Energy Husqvarna PR. "I look forward to getting on the bike and showing everyone what I have. Thank you to everyone backing me—see you at the High Point National!” No word on JGR Suzuki's next move. Nicoletti was filling in for Justin Bogle, who is back on the bike and testing, but we're not yet sure when he will return to the racetrack. Suzuki has its other 450 slot covered with the steady Weston Peick. “It has been a devastating week for all of us here on the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team," Hewitt said. "Losing Zach [Osborne] for the remainder of the season is unfortunate, but he will be back just as strong as ever. We are excited to have Phil for the rest of the Pro Motocross races and know he will mesh well with the team.”
  6. I now have a Husky FE 501 and want to carry supplies in both a front and rear fender bag. Tusk, wolfman, etc. are widespread but I'm seeing mixed reviews, especially about whether or not they stay on the bike if using only hooks/clamps. Here's my wishlist in such bags: • As high a capacity as possible (probably more so for the rear one, I'd assume) • Completely secure (stays put) in bouncy/technical riding but hopefully does not need holes drilled into the fenders • Waterproof or at least highly water resistant • Internal strap for securing contents, preventing them from bouncing around • Black, very dark blue, white, or red in color (the 4 colors of my bike) • No bike-manufacturer-specific logos unless it happens to say Husky or "H", e.g., no "KTM" logo on the bag when I'm riding a Husky. Can you guys/gals please advise on the best options for front & rear bags, meeting most or all of the above? Thank you so much. 🙏 😊
  7. Im new to the site so please forgive me if i get it all wrong but im kinda in a pickle. So last year to make a story short i was working on my fuel pump on my 08 te 610 and my over head heater decided to nuke a bird nest amwhich in turned lit up my bike. Everything plastic and electrical burnt pretty bad (non salvageable). The engine is ok with 2300kms. I have recently bought a used 2008 ktm 530exc that had a wristpin bearing go so some major internal failure So the big question is will the carb off the 530 big enough to work well with the previously fuel injected 610? My plan is to basically dlap my 610 into the 530 does anyone know of problems that might occur with the change??? Thanks mike.
  8. I see the 701 manual shows engine maintenance done with the engine on a stand. How can I take the clutch cover off without removing the right footpeg/frame bracket which will mess with the swingarm pivot??? There's nothing in the manual and I don't want to cause an issue with the swingarm if I can find a work-around. ONE cover bolt is behind the footpeg! What a pain! Thanks!
  9. Hi guys, I recently bought a second hand husky txc 250. I did a couple of bush rides on it and loved it. It gradually became harder to start, eventually I could only bump start it, it refused to start on the starter or kick regardless of the engine being hot or cold. And now it won't start at all. It will fire and rev a couple of revolutions and then die again if I try bump start it. Here is what I have checked so far : New iridium plug, sparking well. New fuel filter. Fuel pump working and pumping fuel Electrical connections cleaned with contact cleaner and connected well. Fuses are good. Temp sensor is good Efi throttle body is clean Battery is charged up and strong. Exhaust is clear of obstructions Air filter new and clean. Anybody got ideas? I guess I could pull the top off and check valve clearances? But I think this model is shimmed. Also the compression still feels great under the kicker. Thanks for reading Daniel
  10. http://enduro21.com/index.php/rally/2654-husqvarna-factory-racing-welcome-andrew-short American motocross star set to switch to rally competition aboard Husqvarna's FR 450 Rally. Husqvarna Motorcycles are pleased to announce the signing of Andrew Short, with the American joining the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Rally team with immediate effect. Turning a new page in his illustrious career, the former US SX and MX racer is set to pilot Husqvarna’s FR 450 Rally machine throughout the 2018 and 2019 seasons.
  11. Hi! So I just bought a new 2015 FE 450 as my first off-road / dual sport bike which I'll be using 60% of the time off road. I'm looking at getting a rather cheap spare set of supermoto wheels for the road. I'm a novice at this and after doing online research I understand that going with 17" 3.5 and 4.25 will have an impact on the speedo (says here how's to resolve this) and will impact efficiency of front shocks. Still, I think it'll be for a smoother and safer ride on the pavement... I can't find anyone online who's done this to this very bike and am unsure about which rims/hubs to get. So before I spend the money (perhaps here), I want to make sure I'm buying the right wheels and hubs. Does anyone know if a Husky FE350/FS501 wheel set will work for the FE450? Are the hubs similar across the newer Husqvarna range? Thanks a lot in advance! Alex
  12. Help needed on 1996 husqvarna te410 brought the bike off of a friend who brought it not running had the stator rewound in a better way found the guy who had the contract with husky to repair the bikes as soon as they hit australis shores in the late 96 2nd hand voltage regulater in good nick fly wheel is fine no moving magnets will start up build up revs for about 2 seconds then stalls how do i test the ignition box and what should it read same with the coil also bikes only done 2000ks from the wear marks and original speedo said 2000ks
  13. I have a 2018 Fe 501 with only about 60 Miles on it. I noticed today that at idle, if I blip the throttle quickly and then let off the engine will either bog down or die completely. I thought it may be related to the JD tuner I had just installed last night, but I unplugged the tuner and it is still doing it. Has anyone else had this issue? Please help!
  14. I have a 2018 Fe 501. I’m curious about removing th emissions from these bikes and the ktm 500. Is there a performance gain by doing this? Is there anywhere anyone could direct me that has a detailed write up on this and what exactly is involved in the process? Im just curious as to why I hear people are doing this. I don't see what there is to gain from it. Please enlighten me Thanks
  15. Traveled down to Central Oregon, Bend area earlier this July to ride some of my favorite singletrack in the whole world. Check out the dusty action filmed with new DJ Spark drone using Active Track, Tripod, and Dronie features. Pretty stoked on the capabilities and video quality of this new little drone.
  16. Hi there, I'm in Australia and hopefully someone can help me. I need to find out some information that has been rubbed off my VIN sticker/plate for my 2006 TE510. Obviously the VIN is fine, I have that stamped on my frame. The wording in the top right in particular is what I am after and also what is printed in the box directly above the VIN. I believe there should be 2 or 3 numbers/letters in there. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers, Martin.

  18. Does anyone know if the Husqvarna txc 250 (black valve cover) and the Txc 250R (red head) use the same inlet and exhaust valves? would be great to know please. TIA Daniel
  19. I am thinking of lowering my 16’ TE 125 but i have no clue on options or cost. Honestly, i am not to worried about throwing a little cash into it. At 5’5, im tired of high siding 5 times a day. Side note, I ride a mix of single trac and open woods, hare scrambles/enduros, and a tad bit of mx. Thanks for the help!
  20. Hi Guys, so i have had this Husky for about 4 months now, it's quite a nice bike, though it's a little low on torque at low revs, especially given i weigh 98kg. But I can't seem to get it to run nicely, and I have no Husky dealers anywhere near me available to help. as best i can tell there are only two adjustments that can be made, The main throttle body butterfly end stop, this obviously adjusts how much the butterfly can close when you release the throttle, and the star headed screw on the side of the throttle body, (seems to be a Air screw) I've fiddled endlessly with these two trying to get the bike to run and start better, but i just can't find a sweet spot. according to the work shop manual, the screw is for setting the idle, (which is supposed to be 1950rpm, no idea how to set that without a rev counter, can just guess i suppose) If the screw sets the idle, then where should the butterfly be? completely closed? In that case what sets the richness? is it all done by mapping? My Current problems are: The bike struggles to start cold, i Have to hold the throttle wide open and use a carefully timed combo of starter and kicker. When it finally starts, it splutters and runs badly for 3 or 4 minutes until its warm, then it seems to be okay and it idles alright. Once it gets very hot and the fan is kicking in, it splutters again and wants to die at low and medium revs, which means i have to keep it revving and tackle every obstacle at an uncomfortably high speed. once it's had a chance to cool a bit it runs better again but still not perfectly. I have a brand new iridium plug in it, and the plug looks neither burnt nor carboned up. The fuel pump is priming and whizzing away in the background, all contacts clean and servicing done, the bike is generally in good condition, it just runs badly. I live 650m above sea level, in a fairly hot climate, and our fuel here is 98 octane unleaded. As i previously rode carb model two strokes, I have no experience with this, it's nothing like old fashioned jetting. any help would be appreciated. Kind regards, Daniel.
  21. Hey guys! Thinking about getting a husky TE 250 to start. Finally found a good offer for a 2010 TC husky turned to TE (was cross, now is road-legal). This guy wants 2000 dollars. No e-start. My question is: is the TC a good bike for enduro? Is it good in the woods/trails? What about in General, is it a good bike? Would you buy it? Thanks!

  23. French Rider First Home in Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge Stage Two April 3, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team’s Pela Renet took his first stage victory in the second stage of the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge on Monday. Teammate Pablo Quintanilla, the reigning world champion was fourth. The rally is the first of five in the 2017 FIM Cross-Country World Rally Championship. Renet completed the 510.69 km including 278.90 km of timed special in 4:05.05 hours and was two minutes ahead of second-placed Paolo Gonçalves of Portugal. Austrian Matthias Walkner was third. Riders once again had to contend with the extreme desert heat. Renet was ideally positioned for a good result in the stage. He started in fifth position, which gave him the advantage of some tracks to follow in this rally where strategy is important throughout the five stages. But what benefited him was also to disadvantage his teammate. Quintanilla was second out after Sunday’s winner Sam Sunderland and the riders in front always have the responsibility of opening the track. Where astute navigation is a key part of the sport, this can make the difference. Pela Renet:“It was good. When you win, it’s always a good day. But it was not an easy stage and again very long. I started fifth so I had some lines in the dunes, but I still had to push. I rode all day alone and I only caught Pablo about 50 km before the end. But I’m very happy with the result.” Pablo Quintanilla: “Today was not so good. We knew from the beginning it would be a day to lose time because we started in front, but that’s how it is. This race is something special. Tomorrow we have a really good starting position so we will try to recover this time. This race is difficult, one day you gain time and then you have to start in front, and you lose time the next day. At the moment it is important to focus on recovering time so tomorrow I will try to do it the right way.” Gonçalves leads the overall standings after stage two, Renet is in third overall and Quintanilla is fourth, however there is only 1 minute 20 seconds between the top four riders, and indication that this will be a hard fought rally. Tuesday is the so-called A1 Ain Water stage, which takes riders over a total distance of 371.23 km, with 280.06 under the clock. Results Stage 2 – Nissan Patrol Special: 278.90 kms Pela Renet (FRA), Husqvarna + 4:05.05 h Paolo Gonçalves (POR), Honda + 2.17 min Matthias Walkner (AUT), + 3.45 Pablo Quintanilla (CHI), Husqvarna + 6.43 Kevin Benavides (ARG), Honda, 7.31 Overall Standings Gonçalves 7:41.41 h Walkner 27.8 seconds Renet + 1.12.5 min Quintanilla + 1.21.4 Husqvarna Motorcycles.

  24. Happy Tuesday all, 3 more days til ridin' :). I just picked up a 17' Husky FE 501 and was anticipating having the option to switch my maps and turn traction control on and off. Yet, there is no switch mounted on the bike and I was so damn excited at the dealer that I looked it over. The pamphlet that came with the bike says that all enduro models are equipped with the switch. Haven't called the dealer yet, but wondering if you guys know anything about this. Kind of feels like false advertising by Husky and KTM, aka I'm not receiving the bike that I paid for.
