RE: build a good enduro engine

hello mate

the danger of a question such as yours is that someone will look at the day you joined, the type of question and think that you joined in 5 minutes and asked the question in 1!

i'm not like that, i prefer to beleive that you read the owners doc thoroughly, that you read the 'tuning; engine rebuild, modifications, updates; and the 'carburation' section right through....

so if you need even more help than the doc - fire away!

you know it makes sense!

regards

isn't this what forums are abound asking what ever one else is doing, my question is simple what do the other forum members think is the best engine for enduro use and what are the best mods to help.

now the lads here know i love my films. and there is a great quote that i WANT to use but i won't. maybe they can guess it?

cool hand luke has just been re-captured and is laying prone when the trilby headed warden bends forth and says: now, wh.. .. .... .... .., . ....... .. ...........!

sir! i think you misunderstood us all. we will help you, but try to use the search feature and the doc first and then we can cut out the first three rounds of crud. we enjoy the detail but not if it's old ground. it keeps us all fresh. how about showing some respect for the old guy at the back?

"Now what we have here is a failure to communicate" Classic!!
How about some info.. Type of terrain?? Size and ability of rider?? Year and model of the bike available for the project? If you really want a good enduro bike, just buy an 07 FE450, add armor and a checkmate and your done.

Hey Log,

Not that I endorse reckless behavior, but, it only becomes a special test when you need to go and get the second six pack.

swsupermoto,

I am a newish member here as well, the guys will give you heaps of support in time, there is a wealth of knowledge here! For an enduro/trail machine, look at the basics, and be assured that the Bergs are very competent machines.

look at getting the suspension right, protect the engine with a real bash plate, not some plastic one, and pay attention to the radiator hoses, they are vulnerable, get some good tyres that match your terrain, and stock up on the highest quality oil you can afford, and oil and air filters, then keep up the maintainence she requires.

the more specific issues will come to you along the way.
