Re: 70 degree durability and issue thread.

Fuel pump died in under 3 hours. Since then no issues.

Does anyone know of a Profill dealer on this side of the planet? I'd like to buy a set.
It looks like the shipping is $2.50 US. from them direct. Not too bad of a price.
Shipping from down under is cheaper than shipping within the US.....at least it was when I bought mine

well tell them from me the '07 & '08 FE650's were a very stong bike & engine, here is the issues log we had after 36,000 km rallye racing

'07 Safari 2 x '07 650 @ 5,500km ea - zero OEM issues, I did a motor on day 2 due to the added external oil cooler line breaking and dropping all the oil , but no OEM issues at all top bike 8th outright

'08 Condo 750 2 x '08 650 + 1 x '07 650 @ 850km ea - zero issues

'08 Safari 3 x '08 650 + 1 x '07 650 @ 4,500 km ea - zero issues top bike 10th outright

'09 Condo 750 1 x '07 650 @ 800km - zero issues

'09 Yilgarn Rallye 1 x '08 650 + 1 x '07 650 @ 500km ea

'09 Safari 2 x '08 650 @ 4,000km - zero issues top bike 5th outright

so after 36,000km rallye racing over 3 seasons we never touched a single motor or bike re OEM parts breaking, and thats with 3 top 10 Safari finishes damn fine motorcylces, our mechanics had it easy

Re: 70 degree durability and issue thread.

thanks guys think i will get a fuel filter soon
in 5000 km my tally is
one head gasket(at 500km) which only leaked at big revs (middle of simpson desert) fixed with 3 bond.
frame rubbing hole in fuel tank (engine mount bracket ?)
standard springs too soft (felt ok but spent heaps of time on arse or doing the rag doll
thermo fan unable to maintain good contact on sensor after getting bogged on simpson trip, tried heaps of things but put in a manual switch
3 kill switches
radiator shrouds prone to ripping off , cable tied inwards a little bit
does any one else have grass seeds etc getting stuck in the air filter? i always put a chux cloth over filter and stuff the excess where the fuel hose comes up
best mod expected to be 22mm offset triple clamps & heavier springs, rekluse clutch takes the edge off the fuel injection / compression braking

Thanks Gazza, top stats I love the 628 engine

will tell em but I bet they will still go for the 570 "because husabergs are more reliable now"

was that in a magazine somewhere?

That is no different than for KTM. There is a very very simple remedy, just a finger full of grease inside the seals and the heim lasts forever. The problem is that the teflon liner works fine so long as it is clean. Easy enough to keep clean on the street but not offroad. Belray Waterproof Grease seems to work just fine.

Re: 70 degree durability and issue thread.

Looking at one of these to cure the (lack of?) fuel filtration problem as the Profill factory seems to be offline at the moment. Not sure if it will fit/can be made to fit but at the price it's no big deal if it doesn't.

Looked at one of these but what worries me is the possibity of the hoses popping off given thet the fuel pressure runs around 50psi. I wouldn't trust standard worm drive hose clips and if you use the stronger crimp-on type then it becomes a PITA removing the tank. Hard to judge exactly how big the filter is from the picture on the website, is there enough room to fit this filter in addition to the OE fuel connector?

There are removable and reusable hose clamps for high pressure applications such as EFI, even used by many OEMs. Check any auto parts store or buy them from a place like Summit Racing.
