My first Husaberg

Some of you may know I just bought a 2011 Fe570. I have been busy and haven't really been able to do anything with it until today.

Went for a good ride with it being the weather warmed up and I had some free time. Tried to start it and nothing. Dead battery I thought? It seemed to start just fine when I tested it. Took the battery out and put it on the charger. Not even a hr later it was full...

Put it back in and again very little to nothing. Hit it two more times and than there it was working. Got the bike running. Let it sit to warm up. Cant believe how quiet these bikes are.

Went for a ride and when I got back I noticed the bike felt rather hot considering I hadn't gone that far. And the fan hadn't kicked in at all. Dosent look like its switched.

I put my had around the back of the exhaust and I couldn't believe how hot the exhaust coming out of the muffler was. Is this normal for these bikes?

I also noticed on the ride how stiff the shifting was. When I was parking it I couldn't even find any sign of a neutral. And with the clutch in I could feel the bike pulling. Looks like I need to adjust the clutch aswell.

Are these issues normal? Or dose anything sound like it could be a problem?

If you have the standard exhaust its restrictive as hell and instead of the heat going straight out the back it radiates out of the exhaust system. This will warm the fuel tank and can make issues with the longevity of the fuel pump.

The clutch does not have any adjustment, sounds like you need to bleed it. Neutral is hard to find at a standstill normally.

Thanks, realizing now that I know very little about these bikes and there characteristics.

Any information about them would be much appreciated. I think I will see if I can de-cork the exhaust. It's just not something I am used too, kinda freaked me out.
Plus, its got the 70 degreee sub-frame tank so the less heat from the exhaust the better.

And let me apologize for all the questions ahead of time.

I am also looking for advice on a fix for a kickstand mount. The shaft that the kickstand slides onto broke off.

I think I will look the whole bike over now. Just to be safe. The starter is still sporadic. I will see if its just a loose connection somewhere or if I need to rebuild the starter. "could be the cold its got that tinny Shorai battery in it."

they get hot, new exhaust will help a lot. i bought a sxt ktm 450 exhaust for me, straight through pipe and not too loud and bolts right on.
Starter is another problem with the auto decompression cam the lobe doesn't line up right and causes hard starting, only happened on a few of them.
do a search on here theres a thread about it somewhere.

Because they get hot it effects the clutch fluid causing it to boil and clutch becomes sticky, sort the underlying problem of overheating and clutch will be fine. give it a bleed and good to go. there loads of threads about on the clutch aswell.

Finding neutral is an acquired skill, you'll be fine! And the clutch does drag when the oil is cold.

To land in neutral, it helps to have some forward motion. Seems to be slightly easier from 2nd gear than first ..? I learned these tricks from the good people here iirc - it becomes second nature to kind of "help" it down out of 2nd with light pressure as you come to a stop.

If when stopped you want into neutral, just apply pressure on the lever and rock the bike a little - physically or by liiiightly clutching in and back out.

Not easy to describe in few words but it becomes a comfortable second nature.

there's a thread on altering some markets' stock muffler - will find! - edit - can't find the one I had in mind but it's been discussed a bit so good info available ..

Really need to know if this Muffler will fit my Fe570. He has three and only $50 each. I would prefer one that would help the most will opening up the exhaust to get rid of that heat.

looks promising at least ... try searching for "ktm exhaust 570 site:husaberg.org" on Google for some reasonably interesting hits

Yeah I did some searching. Finally found it would mount. I am going to bleed the clutch, swap mufflers from a KTM 450 SXF "Hoping it will fix the heat" and while I am at it. I plan to check the valves. Not that I don't trust what the seller said.

I am also fixing the breather vent from the 70 degree aux tank by connection it to the main tanks.

Other than that I just need to fix that kickstand and I should be all good to go.
