Early 2009 FE 450 any Recalls ?

Any recalls on early Dec 2008 sold dates , 2009 FE 450s ? Mine still pops ( backfires ) a few times . One time off a jump to ground ( BOOM ) then CRASH . Then the impeller bearing went out . weep hole was leaking . Bought bike used with 30 hrs , now has 45 hrs. Anything I should change or do to a EARLY 2009 model ? Thanks !

Does it stall when it pops/backfires ? I guess it does if you crashed.
Mine is end nov 2008 and it pop stalled a lot in the first 20 hours especially on the soft mapping. I turned up the idle and put map on aggressive, problem solved.
Once you have that many hours (45) it really should be ok, i have turned my idle back down and its ok in any map now.
I tested the 010 bergs today back to back on enduro course and noticed they were all set at high idle but zero problems with any of them.
No recalls i know of with the early 09s.

The 010 models handled very well indeed, especially considering they were stock and my fe570 has been resprung and revalved.
I am not sure how much difference the 22mm clamps make as the 010 fe 570 got smashed up early on and was unrideable. This meant i could not do a like for like comparison with my 09 570.
So, i ended up doing a few laps on my 09 570 which has rekluse , damper and set on soft map (normally on aggressive), then a few laps on the 010 fe450, then a few laps on the fe 390.
The course was half woods , half open, sandy soil with small tight berms in the woods, quite a few polished roots, open straights on grass, soil rutted looped sections, a couple of bogs, hill climbs and whoop sections.

Into the woods on the fe450 and it was more agile than my 570 on this section of the course, holding a tighter line around trees and into berms, it had good stability, less of a battle therefore faster timewise.
Still in the woods , the fe390 was faster still and the most 2 strokish of the three bikes having razor sharp handling and flickabilty. It did seem to have a more flighty front end, tried to climb out of berms a couple of times. Maybe because ti wants to go faster and requires less respect than the 450/570 to get the job done.
Out in the open on the straight (not a long one) all the bikes felt as fast as each other. yes, im sure you would need a longish straight for the 570 to get any advantage over the 390 !
Traction on all three bikes was the same, they all kicked out on the worst roots in the same manner and none lost traction in any area.

Verdict: All three bikes are great and do everything well.
I would need to do a full 4 hour race on the 390 to be conclusive, but if you are out to win cups in H&H, enduro races then the 390 certainly has more than enough grunt to tackle anything in its path.

I still love my 570. Honest!

Hi Gooch you need to take your bike back to a dealer as there is a new map for the 2009 bikes that had a misfire problem.This is a warranty claim

the dealer will reprogram the ignition mapping inside the computer. Nothing to do with the map switch.
