I Ride: Triumph Sprint ST and Husaberg FE501
New 501 owner in Wiltshire, UK

Hi all,

So I had never really known what a Husaberg was, until Thursday when I was sent a link to a local one by a friend. I've been in the market for another off-roader ever since selling my XR400R about a year ago and seeing loads of bikes out on Salisbury Plain near where I live.
Well, the long and the short of it was that I fell for it when I saw it, and just had to have it. It appeals to my desire to have something a little bit different, and on the test ride it confirmed that it really is a bit of an animal and will need some respect!
There's quiet a few tidying up jobs I'd really like to do, but it isn't going to be a show bike by any means as I know I'll fall off more than a few times!
Some intriguing things are the Hi/Lo switch by the throttle, which the previous owner said was a power switch. Is that true and, if so, am I right in assuming it's just a slightly different ignition map to change the power delivery?

yes, what the red lever covers is the map it is using, NOT the letters you can see!

Lo is for steep climbs and deep mud, heavy loading.
