According to ML512 on here many factory riders do it also and races have been won using Cone and regular midvalves. The mid valve piston in already there you just remove the cone adapter that sits on the piston, the cone and spring and then place a shim ... more »

That’s what I did also!

I remember reading that they were more rigid than the solid design. It would seem to be the opposite.

It comes on the Rockstar Huskys and FEs, but of course it is not for the 52mm forks that they run.

Yes, that filter fixed it. Shine a light in your tank and hit the starter button and you will see bubbling like its boiling if your filter is cracked when you fuel pump kicks on. It causes a loss of pressure to the injector. The filter is a Mahle KL ... more »

The filter fixed it. It was cracked and losing pressure. I found a filter online (Mahle KL 97) the same as original for $6.99.. KTM/Husky wants $70 for a filter set. If you look in your tank and the fuel is bubbling, then you have a cracked filter.

I just pulled the pump out and the filter is cracked at the seam. I'll pick up a new filter set and see how it goes. A lot of my fuel pressure was leaking from there I'm sure.

Thanks! Yes I did that in the beginning and tried another one just to be sure. You are correct, they will put a halt to your fun!

I may have found my problem. When I look down in the tank and hit the button turning on the fuel pump, it bubbles like crazy. I read somewhere the filters were cracking and doing this allowing a pressure drop.

Something I always do on an oil change is soak the filter. I pour oil in my ratio rite measuring cup and drop my filter in it before installation. The manual says to fill up the oil cavity where the filter is, but think this does a better job.

I'll try that, but it runs very well after it starts.

Added reply in a thread Hard to start Husqvarna FC450 12/20/2019 11:26 AM

This sounds crazy, but it's worked like this four times now. I can uncouple the fuel line where the inline filter is, snap it back together and it will start right up! I am thinking I may have an injector going bad.

I may have to go that route or spring for a Vortex or Get unit.

Same here on the same model bike (Rockstar 450 Husqvarna)..

I am really interested in the Vortex ECU, but it is a bit pricey.

Added reply in a thread Hard to start Husqvarna FC450 12/16/2019 5:13 AM

It has an idle adjustment knob and a start button which I think just cracks the throttle open slightly.

Added reply in a thread Hard to start Husqvarna FC450 12/16/2019 5:08 AM

Hit the starter button to prime the fuel pump, push up on the start button, hit the starter button once again to warm the battery and it used to would start on the third time spinning it over. This is the same I used with my 2017 KTM 450 SXF and it always ... more »

What I have is a Husqvarna Fc450 Rockstar bike 2018 (or some say 2018.5) which is very close to the 2019 450SXF. It is a bear to start when cold. I ran the battery down today trying to get it started and had to put in my spare battery. When it starts ... more »
