Hahaha, you don't miss much do you?

I sent in two orders a week or so apart. Everything from my first order is already here and I hope to get news later today that everything from my second order has also arrived. Want to pick up everything in one go.

Believe me, I am missing riding my Husky - getting withdrawal symptoms.

No, that is the bottom hole through which a longer bolt passes to secure the cover to the frame :thumleft:

Yes, I also noticed the KTM branding.

My second order includes the rubber boot connecting the back of the carb to the back of the airbox inner, as well as my new fuel petcock.

Can assemble and ride now, but then I would just needs to dissasemble again. Should have the rest next weekend.

Ok - I see now. I turfed the complete shyte air box in favour of a pod filter. http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=141436.0

Do you know that especially on a SM it benefits from the air box cover being opened up for better breathing? (Problem with the TE is that it could mean easier ingress of water with river crossings etc)

Yes, I was also contemplating it. In fact there was no factory ETA for the airbox part on the order and I was surprised that it turned up. If it did not I would have gone the pod route as this bike will only be used on road.

Must do a bit of reading on opening the airbox - do they drill bigger holes in it?

I have the standard jetting - maybe one would need the larger jets of the 510 (e.g. 180 vs 172) for this too work?

One thing about the SM - due to the nature of the beast and the way I ride it the fuel consumption is dismal. If I remember correctly the last time I checked I filled the tank and hit reserve 88km's later @ around 9km/l. That is just slightly better than my V6 bakkie ;D

Yes the guys drill larger holes and cover with mesh and then there are aftermarket solutions which you also cut the lid for and have a special breathable mesh - cannot think of the name now but if you do a search on Cafe Husky (4T thread) you will find info.

Can't be right, I once managed 26km/l with my TE and that was with knobbles and offroad low gearing, same carb as yours  ???
On average I got around 20 -22km/l.

Might be very dependant on size of the rider and throttle usage
You are small in comparison to kykdaar and hardly rode your's hard.

Also interesting to see the KTM branding on spares!

Make sure you put lots of water proof grease on those brass insert threads and DO NOT tighten them too much,  just a barely nip works fine.

Your bike is getting all the attention my is missing over the last month or so!

Really need to make time to go on a ride.

The problem is after the last Swaziland trip with all that superb riding terrain, everything around here is just too flat and boring, and the 60 k ride to DeWidlt is just such a pain!  You have to get up at sparrow fart.

I really wish I could find a short little technical circuit I could do in an hour or so not far from home.  So when I get the spare chance in the week or something I could pop out for a quick ride.
