I had a 450 -08 before wich i felt like it was a 250. easy to ride, fast cornering.
Now i bought a 2011 and it feels heavier in trails. it wants to go straight forward in the bends. the 70 degree works alot better at the gravel roads for me.
from all ive read before it suppose to be the other way around.
I need your opinions on this. you, who have tried em all or just both.
the chances of getting the right information on this site are the same as getting the truth from a politician.....zero accept that the one that told you the truth was lying as well.
Bushie has got this crank thing COMPLETELY upside down. the crank is 160mm further back as well as the 100mm up (or is it the other way around....where's the truth when you want to find it?
the important bit it that the crank is further back.
the LDC/70d engines are lighter to steer for sure but they have too much trail on the steering. turn the steering stem so that the forks are as far away from you as possible. if they are 18/20s then set them to 20. better still, buy an old set of 22s from just about ANY husaberg from 2003-2008.
also, your rear sag wants to be nearer to 90-95mm and not 100-100-120mm like some people. I won a championship and was runner up by about 30 seconds (after a seasons racing) in another three years ago on a 570 at the age of 52.
