Can anybody give me any advice regarding polishing the ports

And what does the JD kit do?  Is it a fuel controller?

So here is what I have done so far.
(pictures from the web because my bike is at home and I am not)

Installed a matt black Fatbar, similar to this picture.

Still looking for Rox Raisers like picture 2.  It is a bit awkard standing and riding at the moment.

Ktm 950 adv foot pegs

I needed to grind off small spacers on the sides to make them fit, but 5min install and done.

Post by: BOER! on March 12, 2014, 09:29:58 am
Headlight conversion.

I ordered two of Extreme lights 3600Lumen spots.  Like in photos 1 and 2

My idea is to build a bracket to hold them on the front and then put a bit of a screen on like in photo 3.

Title: Re: Husky transformation V2.0
Post by: BOER! on March 12, 2014, 09:38:30 am
I am also thinking of doing a copy of AlanB's headlight bracket and move the dials higher up.

Roxraisers done. Love the new handlebar height.
Will make the technical stuff a bit more manageable.

 Also makes the key positition less akward.

Let me just say the Leo Vince is the best mod I made to my Husky. Gutting the stocker is ok but does not match a true aftermarket pipe. However it is not worth buying one new for thousands (7k or more ?), you will never get it back. If you have money to burn no problem though.

My one 610 has a Arrow on sounds and works well with the PU Kit ---

Arrow was the official pipe used for Huskies --- just not worth the price -- :o

I have the JD Tuner and it is great. Your other mods and farkles are all good but I would say one of the best things one can spend money on on a DS bike before a zorst and bling is a steering damper. I have the Scotts setup and really fits and works well. Once it has saved your ass once or twice you will understand.

I have a steering damper on the gsa, coincidentally I bought it from Big Dom.

Transformed the bike. 

My problem is that I am a mediocre rider at best, so I need all the help I can get.

Post by: BiG DoM on March 13, 2014, 11:41:55 am
Boer - forgot about that  ;D  I have dampers on virtually all my bikes, admittedly some like KTM's demand it more than others but what I can say is when it comes to sand, fist size rocks, mud ... it is a life saver. Oh and great in cross winds - dial it up and track straight  :3some:

I agree,  especially with the husky's being prone to weaving on high speeds. 

I currently run an aggressive knobbly enduro type tyre on the front which I got with the bike.  It creates massive headshake at 120-130km/h.  I have learned just to push forward on the bars and it's sorted, but a damper could improve that a lot.

And in crosswinds as well.  I haven't even thought about it yet.

The only question I have left:  Why did I wait so long?  :biggrin:
Title: Re: Husky transformation V2.0

@Dom,  Another question.

Can you show me you husky's steering stabilizer setup pls?  I would like to see you triple clamp and if you just added a bracket or did you import a new triple clamp.

@Dom,  Another question.

Can you show me you husky's steering stabilizer setup pls?  I would like to see you triple clamp and if you just added a bracket or did you import a new triple clamp.

The kit is an underbar one specifically for the 610 made by Scotts and BPR (make the perch riser. I will see if I can take or get a pic.  It is all plug and play. BPR make the perch that bolts to the OEM triple clamp and raises the bars a bit ... you may want to sell the Rox's once you have the damper.

(sorry I made a mistake earlier- the GPR is on my G450X ... my Husky and HP2 have Scotts dampers).

So I am back after my weekend in a wet and muddy Thabazimbi and surrounds.

I loved the lighter weight of the husky compared to the GSA. I do miss the topend speed on tar nd open gravel sections, but I knew it was a compromise. When we hit the mud and wet conditions the husky came to its full right. And I loved it!

I had a front tyre blow out at 110km/h on a straight solid gravel section and went down really hard and really fast. Also got hit by Smokes' 950SE, but lucky for me he lowsided his bike just in time and saved my life! I just got a slap to the back of the helmet with his rear wheel.

Some photos to follow.

Ou Subie, Smokes het regtig my lewe gered.

Hy is 'n moerse goeie bike pilot en as dit iemand anders was, was ek heel moontlik moer toe.

Ek is baie dankbaar vir my pel wat sy bike (en sy eie lewe) gewaag het vir my.

So I was traveling along nicely on a nice solid and compacted gravel highway between Rooiberg en Marekele Nature Reserve when I had a full frontal tyre blowout.

Front wheel deflated in less than 1 second and I hit the ground solid at 110km/h.

Mark Hardy helped me up, and we picked up the bike.

Busted shoulder and busted knee made for an uncomfortable night's sleep.

Title: Re: Husky transformation V2.0
Post by: BOER! on March 17, 2014, 09:58:16 pm
The cause of the tyre rupture became clear when Mark Hardy and I started to fit a spare tube (thanks Mark)

The Rim lining (? correct term?)  was like a solid plastic lining, and not rubber.  It was also severely twisted and it was clear that the tube must have been rubbing on the inside of the spokes until it decided it went pop!

Not much I could have done differently.

Sorry to hear Boer --I had a front blow out last year from a --Snake Bite - at about 120 in a corner -- also deflated in a split second as I looked down I saw the tyre trying to climb off the rim --all I could do was look for a place to park my arse and shoulder --

Jeez, Boer bly jy is OK. Gelukkig crash Huskies baie goed, gewoonlik baie min skade.
Ek het 'n groot klip raakgery teen so 90+ en toe snakebite my tube ook en die voorwiel was baie vinnig pap, dit was 'n interressante paar oomblikke om bo te bly tot ek kon stop. Het gelukkig besef die wiel kan pap word, so was nie besig om te versnel nie.
Geluk met jou nuwe bike, jy gaan hom nog baie geniet, miskien ry ons eendag saam.

So after my crash with the Husky, I had a check up on my busted knee, and confirmed that I cracked my patella.

I'm obviously tough enough (read stupid) to bite through it, and it's bitten me in the arse a bit.  I have bumped my knee so many times at work (in construction) and every time if feel it. 

I can clearly feel a new dent vertically across my kneecap after my front tyre blow out.

In short, I haven't been riding since, and I am desperate to get back on the Husky.
Title: Re: Husky transformation V2.0
Post by: BOER! on May 21, 2014, 11:03:02 pm
On the upside, I dropped my bang up bike off at Blazes to give it his magic wand once over, and boys!  I promise you I am glad I did.

So we all know Blazes is the local King when it comes to carbon.  This gentleman has honed his hobby to a fine art, and I am truly grateful that he allowed me to twist his arm in making me up some extra stuff as well. I went to see my Husky at Blazes house last night, and it felt like visiting a friend in prison.  I've been working, and he has been resting and pumping iron.  :biggrin:

So the Carbon fibre bits are all on and it makes the bike look amazing.

I also had the header pipes ceramic coated inside and out, and it also looks really great, and Blazes will fit them for me.

But best of all is the headlight conversion.  A few posts back I posted the lights from Extreme Lights.  Those little round bobs with 3600Lumens each. 

Now look what Blazes got up to!

Title: Re: Husky transformation V2.0
Post by: BOER! on May 21, 2014, 11:08:53 pm
The carbon screen fits onto the existing one, and lifts the screen by 150mm, which will give a lot better wind protection. I am 1.9m short and I get a lot of wind on the husky standard setup.

He also made up a custom bracket and fitted the two LED lights to the bracket, and it does not fit to the screen anymore, which is a lot less vibration on the lights.

The one light is on dims. And brights equals 7200 Lumens of bright white light when both the LED's come on. 
Seeing as I also lost my glasses during my fall, I need all the help I can get to see where I am going.

Title: Re: Husky transformation V2.0
Post by: BOER! on May 21, 2014, 11:14:56 pm

CAUTION:  These lights WILL blind oncoming traffic.  They are not meant to be used as your primary driving lights, or daytime running lights.



the last sentence could be a concern, if the bike is used during the night with oncoming traffic....  :deal:


Easy to sort out --Fit a Perspex diffuser on one and a yellow one on the other --That's what I would do --and when you in the bush where you need the light clip them off -- ::)

Hi Guys

Looking for a steering damper, Leo Vince pipe, and somebody that can do the tubeless conversion on the rims please.

Thanks in advance.  :thumleft:

I don't understand why you need a damper.  The 610 is one of the most stable bikes I have ever ridden.

I think so too, coming from a GSA.  :thumleft:

Lets call it a confidence/snake oil thing.   :biggrin:

But in all seriousness, I saw the deep sand ruts at Marekele few weeks ago, and I don't have enough confidence to pin the throttle yet.

I sound like a pussy....  :-[

These guys seem to be an option.

Quoted me R3500 for new pipe with carbon fibre end cap....

My bike bike tends to squirm around in thick sand, especially with the big tank that makes the front a lot more nervous when full, but once you get used to it, its fine.

But I don't go much faster than 130 or so even on good surfaces.  In thick sand I doubt if I do much over 110 or so, maybe much less, depending on circumstances.

I sometimes get a bit of a fish --tail on the back at high speed in thick sand --just move body weight a little back and its sorted .
They are most probably one of the most stable bikes in the market.

Just a note  ::)

When fitting a new front tyre you are going to get a bit of a wobble over 100kmph in thick sand --until the tyre has settled in then its fine --

Just what I have experienced with tyres --will also feel unstable on tar with a new front tyre till its bedded in

Ek dink ook enige bike fishtail so n bietjie in die sand. Mens moet dit maar net gewoond raak.
Ek is maar self redelik relaxed op my bike met n ligte hand op die handlebars gewoonlik ( vang ook maar so af en toe n skrik met gevolgelike death grip op die stokke :-)  :spitcoffee:
Kry vir jou n sanderige paadjie ,nie diksand en gaan bou bietjie confidence op. Ry die kolletjies sanderigheid aggresief. Niks mal gaan onnodige gespin nie. Net n lekker positive accelleration deur die sandkolle. O ja bande en banddedruk sal die lewe bietjie gemakliker maak in die begin.

It has been quite a while since I have posted here.

So below is a quote from the original post on page 1, with the items updated to date.

Quote:
Finally bought a Husky 610te from HK on the forum.

Been going it over and reading up on some of the mods available out there and here are some of the things I am planning on doing.
 
1.  Airbox conversion.
2.  Battery box support gusset
3.  Subframe support gussets
4.  Tubeless tyre conversion - Still in two minds about the gains on this.
4. Aluminium radiator guards THE PLASTICS ARE FINE
5. Carbon fibre sticker kit to rear panels. - WOA Centurion Naah.  Not doing that anymore 
6.  Bigger tank (maybe) I am still unsure about the costs vs the gains.  Right now I don't ride enough to justify it.

Things I have done so far.
1.  Renthal Fatbar done
2.  KTM 950adv Footpegs installed
3.  ROX raisers done
4. Pannnier racks
5.  Keyless fuel cap done - Nice to have but not a big deal.
6. Wiring sorted. - Wiring had performed without any issues more than 2 years running.  :thumleft:
7. Ceramic coating of the two header pipes - Powakote.   
8.  Carbon fibre bits and parts - ordered and fitted by Blazes
9.  Headlight conversion. Done, thanks to Blazes.
10.  Stealth Exhaust End can fitted.  Sound better and pulls better.
11.  Bought a steering damper and bracket.  Still need to fit it though. 
12.  Fitted a new smaller sprocket at the front and a bigger sprocket at the back.  I've got around 146km/h last time I checked. But not for long.
13.  I have done a tail tidy, and fitted a new brake light and LED indicators, after mine took a beating on the Zinyala ride last year in June.


Things that was  already done to the bike which I like
1.  Hyde Bash plate
2.  Rear carrier -  I have cut a new CNC alu carrier and fitted it with the tail tidy.
3.  Probend Cycra Handguards.
4.  Exhaust Heat shield painted black  :thumleft:
