2005 FE 450 should I buy it?

Hello a really clean 2005 FE 450 came up for sale, it has 30 original hrs on it looks like new. I was hoping to find a 2007 or 8 but this one is available, does need the carb cleaned from sitting, it has some popping and sputtering going on, but starts up well and rides very nice. Well do you guys think should I go for it

My Berg

Thank you for the reply, I did end up purchasing the bike and am very happy to have a Berg back . I had a very nice 550 not to long ago but sold it and wish a hadn't. I do need to go through the carb or send it down to Tokyo mods and have them give it there magic. I have not ever had a FCR39 MX apart but might watch some videos and maybe tackle it myself. Also are there any parts suppliers in the USA if I need something, or who has the most stock of parts left? Also I attached a few photos of the bike, check it out.

i definately have the most parts for these. just clean the carb yourself? part of the Husaberg love is the bonding you get from cleaning the carb!

I would like to do a valve check and if needed an ajustment on my 2005 FE450. Is there any information available on how to? I do have a manual but it doesn't have that information.
Thanks for any help

If valve springs are still "conical", I'd replace them. Not sure about the 450, but on the 650 it's not a matter of if, it's when they break. Cheap easy solution to switch to Dual Valve Spring Kit (DVSK) and can save you from an unfortunate 'splosion. Otherwise, set valves, clean carb, have fun! I love my FS450! (and all 4 650s). Some argue the 450 is underpowered, and perhaps it is, but I know I turn better laps on my 450 than I do on the 650 (450 allows for so much more throttle gaffes - on the 650, not a lot of room for mistakes). Have fun!

Thanks for the information, who sells the DVSK spring kit? I have also found a good bit of valve adjustment information here on the forum, and I think I can work my way through that now.
I just got back from a ride on this bike and have a small review: It handles very well and is really planted, also it feels lighter then my Beta 500 I'll have to side by side weigh them . Power is great for putting traction to the ground, there is very little compression braking compared to other 4t bikes and I prefer it like that, It does not have the front wheel lifting power of bigger or new bike bikes so it takes a little more finesse. I would say it has more power then a KTM 400 but not as much as a 450. I still need to add hand guards and a new seat cover along with some general maintenance, but I am very happy with this bike and I am sure it has a lot of hrs of fun left in it.
