I thought the power output might be a slight higher... the torque figures look awesome.  Front tyres should last quite long now  ;D rear tyres on the other hand  :ricky:

Newguy, Its still a thumper. Not much Hp to be found on the longstroke motors. Torque, yes plenty.

A Drz400 could match the Hp on the Husky, but its the out of the arm socket pulling torque that matters.

Finally, a solution to the fatbar problem!

After waiting almost a week and a half just for another company to get STARTED on a set of custom handlebar clamps (I won't mention who, but I understand their position as they are busy with a moerse big manufacturer order), I decided to turn to our good friends KSP

Within 5 minutes of looking at the clamps, Fidel had a solution...

Here are the stock clamps...



What Fidel's going to do is machine the bottom clamp out to accomodate the fatbars... the top clamp can't be machined (as the cross braced section is too thin) so he's CNC'ing me a custom top clamp, which will look something like this (the red part):



I should have it by the weekend, can't wait  :thumleft:

That torque increase is what's doing all the talking. Nice one.


+ 1...Check the linear delivery of the open Leo across the rev range, so yeah, the pipe makes a huge difference.

A lot of people tend to think (incorrectly) a dyna tune will give you lots of extra horses, ...not, but the quality of the power, man o' man. In this case money well worth spent!

Plus one  :thumleft:

Quality of Power.

The FI---- Makes a huge difference when uncorked from low down to mid-range. When the lambda sensor is plugged and the resistor fitted with the Arrow pipe made for Husky--it is like day and night. The system sets itself back to race mode  :mwink:

At one stage i thought i had a dud bike till i uncorked her-----like a XR when uncorked--they start to breath again.

At last, an end to the handlebar saga! As I explained in previous posts, the unique bolt spacing on the Husky and the offset (forward) and height of the stock clamps made it hard to switch to fatbars - regular adaptors wouldn't fit, and Rox risers were too high.

Fidel and the guys at Waterjet took my bottom clamps, hacked off the cross brace, and machined them out to accomodate the fatbars. They then CNC'd an alluminium top clamp to match, which looks and works great. You will notice a gap between the 2 - this is down to the fact that the bottom clamp could only be machined so much without compromising its integrity... the gap might not look as great as a flush finish, but it has no noticeable effect on the grip on the bars. I retained the spacers / risers that were already on the bike, and I'll be ordering new rubber bushes as the current ones are a bit worn. I also have stainless cap screws to pop in but I need to shorten them first.

Nothing but praise - their work is outstanding.



The bar I fitted was a Zeta SX 03 in the "Honda" bend. I researched a few handlebar bends and decided on the Pro-Taper Windham / RM Mid, however no-one in the country had stock or could get that particular bend. The Zeta SX 03 Honda bend is virtually identical so I went for that instead. So far it feels great.

With the fatbars on I could also fit the Cycra Pro-Bend Handguards I had bought...



What high-quality kit... quite a mission to put it all together since the bumpers and shields install with self-tapping screws (yes, into alluminium - pick the screwdriver with the biggest grip). At first it feels like it's not going to fit, but as you tighten it all up it falls into place nicely.



At last, all done! It's kief. Like a wolf.



New indicators go on this week (old one got melted by exhaust). Bashplate arrives this weekend. Footpegs should be here any day I am told, but I'm not holding my breath... still waiting on the tank as well...

Very nice Westy! :thumleft:

Wou nou net vra oor die skidplate. Se my het jy 'n groter tank bestel?
sal graag wil sien hoe die bees dan gaan lyk.

En gaan jy 'n screen op sit?
