  1. Found a 2009 Husqvarna SM510R with 4700 miles on it for $4,000 and it is in mint condition. This will be my first bike and I heard about the maintenance schedule such as oil changes, the oil filter changes, and valve timing. What do you guys think about it?
  2. Recently bought a Husky WR 125 the one without restrictions. Since this is my first two-stroke I need some questions answered, a big thanks to all people that spend their own time to help me. This bike was ran 50:1 so 20ml of oil per litre of fuel. It ran ok when started but never wanted to idle it would just cut straight out not BOG but just die I winded out the mixture screw completely and it still wouldn't start the only time I actually got it to start is if I hold the throttle open about a 1/4 of a turn and it would start up on the second kick sometimes lucky on the first. Because it's road legal I spend a lot of time at traffic lights which meant I had to keep the throttle steadily open so the bike would keep running, if I let go of the throttle it would just die. I recently switched oils from Motorex to Castrol but still rocking the 50:1 ratios. After every ride I have to clean the swing arm and exhaust tip because of black spooge. Earlier today I set out and 30 seconds down the road the bike bogged out and died, it then wouldn't start at all even the 'bypass - hold open throttle 1/4' wouldn't start the thing. I then ripped out the carb cleaned it out entirely and cleared ALL jets, I took off the air filter and cleaned inside the air box it seemed a little wet/oily inside and oiled the air filter slightly as it felt dry. It has decent spark but the plug was black and wet which I then cleaned and tried to kick over baring in mind I just refuelled. It would start with a 1/4 turn throttle and then rev up then bog out and die, of course it would not start with choke and without throttle. It has nice compression but when it comes to power if I don't pull the throttle crisp/fast enough it would snag and sound a little like a 4 stroke then all of a sudden power comes, to me that just sounds someone is going to say 'that is a two-stroke for you'. Thanks best of luck!
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. CORONA, CA – May 22, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Troy Lee Designs rider Cody Webb took the Day 2 win on his way to second overall at the Red Bull Minas Riders, part of the Hard Enduro Series, nearly giving him the win over reigning series champ Graham Jarvis. As a rookie to the competition Webb was quick to learn what was needed to succeed, but with rain canceling the final days he had to settle for second overall. The “Hard Enduro” in Minas Gerais, Brazil lived up to its name with challenges spanning over 150 miles. From sketchy bridge crossings to cliff climbs, Webb’s skill was tested but in the end he excelled in the conditions. After getting a grip on the style of racing that makes up a Hard Enduro, he took the win on Day 2 and came within just two minutes of the leader before the race was called due to unrelenting rains in the area. “After the first day, I knew it was going to be an challenging second day,” said Webb. “It was probably some of the hardest terrain I’ve ever ridden. I was able pick up my race a lot in the second half and I pushed through to gained time on Graham (Jarvis). It’s pretty awesome to be right there with him. It would have been interesting to see how close I could have gotten to him if it didn’t get rained out.” Webb was wearing the SE Air Streamline Orange and Navy Jersey with the SE Air Pant, along with the Air Glove, all from the brand new 2018 collection.

  6. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory racing’s Jarvis Earns a Hard-Fought Runner-Up at Erzberg’s Hare Scramble with Billy Bolt Seventh June 18, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Graham Jarvis has finished as runner-up to Alfredo Gomez at the 23rd running of the ErzbergRodeo Hare Scramble. Just over three minutes behind eventual winner Gomez, Jarvis rode yet another highly impressive race around the Iron Giant. Once again overcoming a cautious start and having to work his way passed countless riders during the faster, dustier sections of the course, once into the more technical sections he worked his way towards the front but ultimately ran out of time to challenge for the win. Once again showing himself to be one of the best ever ErzbergRodeo competitors, Graham Jarvis made a typically steady start before increasing his speed as the unforgiving Erzberg terrain intensified. Making up time on his rivals through the extended Karl’s Dinner section, the veteran racer worked his way towards the front, passing all but one of the early pace setters. Closing in to within just over three minutes of Gomez, Jarvis claimed a well-deserved runner-up result. For Billy Bolt getting to the start line at Erzberg was arguably a bigger challenge than finishing the race. Riding a bike just once during the three weeks prior to the event following a foot injury that required two operations, Bolt showed incredibly determination and focus to earn a highly creditable seventh place finish. Reigning AMA EnduroCross and FIM SuperEnduro champion Colton Haaker endured a challenging Erzberg 2017. Claiming an 11th place result, Haaker suffered with arm pump and a number of small crashes while charging hard during the early stages of the race. Battling his way through the hugely demanding Karl’s Dinner section, he then pushed as hard as he could to claim his first Erzberg finish in 11th. Graham Jarvis: “I’m happy with second. Hats off to Alfredo he was very strong, he rode a great race, and I just wasn’t able to get close enough to him early enough. I didn’t get a good start and then lost five or six positions when I messed up one of the hills. I was behind then in some of the single file wood sections. I had to fight my way back. But I felt pretty strong during the second half of the race. I pushed through Karl’s Dinner and made up some time there. I seemed to get a little energy back after Karl’s Dinner, things were pretty close to Gomez – if he’d have made a mistake I might have been able to catch him. I don’t have any complaints, it was a difficult as it always is but there’s not too much I’d change. The younger riders are getting more experienced so I’m pleased with second.” Billy Bolt: “It’s hard to be disappointed with a Hare Scramble finish, especially when I’ve only spent one-day on a bike in the last three weeks following my foot injury, but I feel like I could have delivered more. I felt like my speed was where it needed to be, but I just made one or two mistakes that were costly – against riders like Alfredo, Graham and Cody you just can’t afford to do that. My foot was sore, so I was trying to ride in a way that I didn’t use it too much. But when you’re trying to ride across Karl’s Dinner that’s not easy. I guess a seventh place result isn’t too bad. Congrats to Graham and the other podium finishers. I’ll be back stronger next year.” Colton Haaker: “It’s certainly better to finish this year, rather than not finish. I put a lot of work in this year because I really wanted to be one of the finishers. I thought I was in a pretty good position early on, but suffered with arm pump. I pushed crazy hard, passing riders, but had so many simple falls. I kind of came good after Karl’s Dinner, had a cool battle with a few riders and eventually got to the finish.” RESULTS – ERZBERG HARE SCRAMBLE 2017 1. Alfredo Gomez (KTM) 2:17:06 2.

  7. So I took my txc to the sand dunes for the first time and I made sure that my bike was ready, by that I mean antifreeze was checked, air filter cleaned and so on. But when I was riding there my bike was overheating in the first 20 minutes. The fan was working it's butt off and I could hear a swishing noise when I put my ear up to the radiator which I don't know if that is normal. Also my clutch wouldn't engage so I couldn't shift when I was riding but as soon as I stopped the bike died and the clutch would engage again. And my friends bike was doing just fine, his fan didn't even turn on and I want to know if anyone else with Husqvarna is having the same problems or even anyone with the same model?

    Stunt pegs

    I've got the fe501 from 2015. Since I've been looking to up my wheelie game I've come to the conclusion that I will be needing some stunt pegs for the axles. Any know where I can find such a thing? I only seem to find for the 500exc. Will they fit? I mean, it's basically the same bike..
  9. I am looking for a skid plate to fit to my 2017 FC450. Not having much success with the carbon fibre one I had, I am now looking at the two genuine options that are available. These both look like they are a great design with minimal weight being quick n easy to remove for servicing and cleaning. Has anyone tried these? if so what are your thoughts? If anyone could supply some photos that would be amazing. I am not sure If I have posted this topic correctly, please let me know If it is in the wrong area.
  10. 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.

  11. I purchased a 2018 TX 300 in November and I been hearing about the magura slave cylinder failure on FE/FC/FX 450/501 but I was wondering if the 2 stroke models were having the same problems
  12. Hey all, My name is Jay and i'm new to the forum community but not new to the sport. However I have reached my limit with my expertise and am hoping some of you may be of some help. Without further ado... I've stuck to a track most my life, I.E. Motocross, arena cross and outdoor national style tracks. I've made the difficult decision to leave to tracks to the young guns and ride more single track and trail riding up in the mountains. So i started by selling me Factory SLM racing 2012 Yz450F, yes i cried when he drove off with her. But i looked to greener pastures with hopes to have a KTM 500exc, Beta 500rr-s or a Husqvarna FE501. However, almost a year later and I still don't have a shiny new dirt magnet in my shop. I'm in the final deliberations and have narrowed it between KTM and BETA, with me leaning towards the BETA. This is where you come in. I would like to know the following. Is the Beta service intervals as daunting as the KTM's? Is the cost of parts between the two noticeable? And are the just as readily available? Those that have a 2017 of either bike, How are they holding up? Can I expect this bike to hold up like a 1985 XR250 (An almost impossible feat)? What are any major concerns about either bike? and finally what made you choose one or the other? Thank you for your efforts and advice. I appreciate it.
  13. In your opinion, which Factory Team would you race for? -Suzuki -Honda -Kawasaki -Yamaha -Husqvarna -KTM -Also, 2 stroke or 4 stroke?

  15. Hi all, I'm new to the forums but I've always used them on my other bikes. I currently have a 2014 Honda CRF250L and I have riden some MX on friend's bikes. I'm 16 and I want something aggressive and fun, some things that I want are: 4 stroke Newer than probably 2015 Electric start (possibly a kick-start backup) Easy maintenance (no crazy rebuild schedule)/common parts Mid-High power EFI Thank you in advance
  16. I own a 2013 TXC310, and would like to hear any suggestions to make it competitive in the hard enduro scene (specifically re-gearing). -SLR Fanga dagen
  17. Hi! I'm thinking about buying an 03' CR250 and the seller did a rebuild, new piston, pro circuit exhaust, new crank, carburetor, spark plug, all new bearings and some other smaller things (seals etc.), on the picture bellow you can really see she's a beauty... okay so the problem is that after the rebuild the bike goes into false neutral every couple of shifts eg. every 10 min of riding. It didn't do that before the rebuild so any ideas? Also the bike is selling for $1450 and the price isn't final so that's why I'm so interested. Thanks in advance, ulajemuzica
  18. My 2012 KTM is having issues starting. When I pull out choke and start it it takes forever to fire up. And if it does not fire up after 4-5 seconds I have to stop and try again. Oftentimes it will flood or the battery will get drained. Once my bike finally starts when I try to put it in first gear it cuts out on me unless I let the bike get hot first. Also if I just let it sit in idol without giving it throttle it will end up dying on me as well. Any guidance would be very appreciated and yes I’m pulling in the clutch when going Into first gear lol
  19. Today I want to shift gears, open the floor for discussion, and talk about the state of dirt biking as it relates to the bikes we buy, ride, and maintain. In my relatively short existence, a number of things have happened in the industry which has been interesting to see. A few examples, which are not by any means exhaustive of all that has gone on, include the emergence of the four-stroke power plant, electronic fuel injection, improved tire technology, electric bikes, and the development of air forks. On a more micro-level we’ve seen improvements to materials, new manufacturing processes, and coating processes which have allowed ever increasing performance. As a fellow rider and someone who has no bias or stake when it comes to manufacturers and product offerings, I’d like to hear your thoughts as they relate to today’s machines. My question to you is a simple one, are your needs as a consumer being met by today’s manufacturers and bikes? What aspects of today’s machines do you love and what are pain points for you? If you could do things your way, what would you change? Are there machine variants that aren’t being offered? Leave a comment below that addresses these questions or share your historical perspective! I look forward to your responses. Thanks and have a great week! - Paul https://www.diymotofix.com/
  20. Peter Weiss is a name in the Hard Enduro world that you have most likely heard of. This is the guy that gets contracted by race organizations to build hard enduro race tracks. Look him up sometime...He has a long list of great race courses under his belt. In addition he does enduro schools and exhibitions that usually accompany his travels to various parts of the world. While Peter was in Peru laying out the route for the El Inka Hard Enduro, he wanted to come out to Cusco and do some tourism stuff as well as pack a couple of good days of riding into his schedule. It was ON! This is what its like to ride the Andes with a pro! I don't always have the chance to ride with pro level riders like Peter. What I like about it most is that I get a chance to stretch my ability by trying new things. I can't take big risks when riding solo, which is what I do most of the time. So Peter shows up and my buddy Alex and I decide to show him some of what the Andes are all about. Big mountains that stretch up to the 16,000 ft mark just behind my house. He was stoked to give it a go. We rode for two days, covered a bunch of types of terrain, and returned home with huge smiles on our faces. I will let the video do the talking. This guy likes the routes tight and crazy...He got what he wanted! Keep your eyes out for Peter Weiss. He puts down some killer GPS tracks for a number of races in South America and other parts of the world. Check out The El Inka Hard Enduro(ZICK is the race organization) in Peru which takes place around the beginning of December. Peter's route this past race left only a small handful to reach the finish line... Mario Roman took home the prize. I always look forward to riding with Peter. If you get a chance to take part in an enduro school of his, you won't be disappointed. Enjoy the video and make sure to follow this blog so you can stay tuned to what's happening in the enduro world of Peru... Wheels down, Scottiedawg Scott Englund of MotoMission Peru is a social entrepreneur who puts together hard enduro tours in the Andes of Peru.

  21. I have a Voss helmet and really like it I was wondering if anyone else has experience with their products and what they think.
  22. Just bought a Husqvarna TX300 and the stock mikuni is giving me the worst gas mileage I have ever experienced on any 2 stroke. There is a little bit of spooge but not enough to seem extremely rich. Also, when I began running out of gas I would shut the gas off and the remaining gas in the bowl seemed to go forever. Perhaps the float if too high?
  23. The FMF 125 Dream race Triple Crown is our way of bringing back our roots. The origins of motocross was bred on premix and race gas, and some of these legends only dream of ripping a national track on a 2-stroke. After the kickoff in Hangtown that saw a packet gate and some intense racing, we took it Thunder Valley and finally Washougal this weekend where we will be giving away this custom built 2018 FMF Husqvarna TC 125. For the racers that competed in the first 2 races will have their chance to win the bike at the Washougal round. Winner will be chosen at random, so you don’t have to be winning, you just need to have the passion! Build Video
  24. Good morning everyone. My first post on here been lurking for a while and thank you all for your info you post. I am interested in buying an 07 tc 450. I have never purchased a euro bike before and i am here to see if anyone can tell me if parts are hard to obtain for this bike? our if there is anything specifically i should be looking for other than the norms. Any personal experience with this model would be great as well. Thank you in advance for your time.
