Just bought my first Husaberg!

Hello!

Just bought myself a 450 FE on an 04.

Iíve wanted one for a while but alway shied away as they tend to have a bit of a reputation!

As soon as i got it I did the fork seals, wheel bearings, swing arm bearings and a new battery (that was a fresh experience for me!).

Just went out for a spin, runs nicely! [I] Was expecting it to be a bit more grunty but i think the softer approach will be better off road!

The only thing I noticed really is that it takes a while for the revs to drop when i come to a stop. Maybe an air leak? Blocked pilot jet...needs more investigation!

Looking forward to the idiosyncrasies of the bike! First off road test coming up on Saturday!

Hi Taffy,

Thanks for getting back to me. I tried that, and no joy.

As you now know I have ordered a new carb inlet rubber and hopefully that will do the trick.

I will definitely be back to you when i need more bits!

Incidentally, how many turns out should the mixture screw be?

I normally warm the bike up and screw in until it starts to falter and then wind out until the revs rise and the back in a 1/4 turn. Will that do the job?

there's an "ideal" which is 1.5 turns but in no way should you just dump it at 1.5 turns and leave. it is just a guide.

i just set to fastest idle and don't move even the 1/4 turn you speak of.

I also turn the screw in until it falters or stalls but that is to twig what is happening.

it is not unusual to have to do a PJ change with the Husabergs as they often run the Keihin 'E' needle and the correct PJ is more critical thabn with the 'D' needle.

regards

Taffy
