Talk me Into Buying Berg

Hello,

I am considering purchasing a 2008 FE450 but am worried about parts availability. I am getting older but still quite hard on my bikes. Will I be able to source the parts for a rebuild without too much trouble or unreasonable expense? Thanks for any advice.

Shouldn't have to talk you into it lol.

I think most of the problems that the earlier years had were ironed out by 2008. I think it would serve you well if it is in good shape and runs good.

All frame and suspension are KTM and replaceable without a worry. Motor I am not sure about availability but think most stuff isn't an issue.

Got a 2014 FE350 plated with min hours and low k and is in mint shape that might come up on the block lol, Tons of extras done. On the fence right now about selling

If your worried about parts avalability its probably not the bike for you.
If you've ridden a Husaberg you probably wont care too much about that because there are ways to keep them running for some time.

Thanks for the response! After doing a bunch of research I'm still undecided. I really like the Idea of riding something out of the ordinary. Its a trade deal so it might not even work out anyway. I guess I'll go forward with it and see what happens!
