No and no
It seems to be that it is. Parts manual calls it a "relay"...

Anyway I think we should all sing kumbaya and get along.

I would vote for splitting General into Off-Road / On-Road or Dirt / Pavement.

I don't think that's a slippery slope towards creating too many forum categories.

Motorcycles don't have solenoids as far as I know.



Description: A starter solenoid mounts directly to the starter. Although similar to the starter relay, the solenoid converts electrical energy into linear motion. The solenoid contains a set of windings that, when energized, cause movement of the solenoid?s plunger, which then engages the starter.

Purpose: The starter solenoid supplies the high current needed to run the starter motor and also provides the force needed to engage the starter.

On some bikes (my 97 for instance) but not the 01 or 05, when you turn the key on you can hear the starter relay "click" as it makes contact. Since some relays make noise as they engage you could assume that they are a solenoid of sorts but they are not

Husaberg is one of very few MFG's that produce a SM out of the box.....a race ready one at that.....In my humble opinion this site needs a stand alone Super Moto section....might as well lay the ground work now, its gonna get popular.....although I enjoy wading through all the sections to gather VERY HELPFUL info, I think a Dirt bike set up to ride/race on tarmac has different issues and really deserves its own section..... Just my 2 c's

brian

you have a lot to say and you've asked for a lot of help already!

cams, exhausts, carbs everything-you name it you're up for it-good for you. but there IS nothing about tuning an engine that isn't being done NOW by the MX and enduro boys. that's it-that's us-right now!

so give it a break fella. take a chill pill.

regards

A forum such as this is designed to exchange Ideas, meet great folks who share a common love of motorcycles and build comrodery amongts fellow Husaberg enthusiasts...........Perhaps you are the one that needs to give it a break........as for the chill pill......thats up to you....I'd hate to upset you further by suggesting you take one.......

Hey, this here thread is entertaining! Some of you guys are really getting the fur up. I think I'd get a few more chuckles if I could translate the slang from over the pond; but I get the main intent.

On solenoids, yes there are solenoids on the Bergs. Or at least my 98 has one under the seat. It came that way out of the box. Sometimes they can be called contactors, relays, and other names too.

Where will it end? We will then need a MX forum, an Enduro forum, Hare and Hound forum, desert forum, woods forum, trail riding forum, women's only forum and god forbid we forget to include a flat track forum.

You can't register a FS Berg for street use in California anymore and California usually spreads it disease so your state (or country) will probably be next. I just don't see Supermoto growing by leaps and bounds except maybe in Europe for awhile at least until the pollution laws become stricter.
