And then their was --LIGHT ---

Silly question but I take it they will work off DC only ? Also how many watts do they use ? No problem with night riding now  :thumleft:

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....  :-[

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:
