Bummer you had to do it that way but at least it worked out for ya
At least you won't have to worry about it ever coming off again and if you bend it, it's nothing a new peg and grinder cant fix in the long run.

One of you should have 3 wheels.

Chain Roller gone

I broke a footpeg bolt today.

While working on it I noticed a broken boss on the frame about 6" above the shifter. I assume there was a chain roller there, can't remember, but nothing now!

Anyone have any experience with no roller?

My battery box has been broken from subframe for a year or so, it just hangs from fender, no problem yet.

UVO Tail/Turn light works for me.

FINALLY taking my bike into Hall's in the next couple weekends to get the EFI remapped. Bought the bike uncorked with Uptite's goodies and a Leo slipon. Called Hall's and service guy said they have 7 maps that "usually" work and they tweak it from there if need be. Would it be worth it to call George and get his $0.02 so I look like I know what I am talking about when I go in there?

It's a ~4 hour one way trip for an hours worth of labor, so I want to be prepared and not waste any of their time.

Set aside an hour and call George. He'll not only help you, he'll be glad you called him.

I have heard he is a talker. I might be able to get more details as to what all the PO bought and installed on this bike. Sometimes it's good to buy it already done, but sometimes I like knowing what is what and how it all works....

Thanks

Yep, it's gone, so is mine. Has been for about 3K miles. BTW, I'm supposed to be getting a NEW frame because of it under warranty. I keep hearing the frame is in Italy still. No damage from not having it yet. I do worry about the case getting slapped by the chain someday.

Weld the footpegs on, that is the first thing I'm doing when I get the new frame.

Here are some pictures of my Husqvarna/VMC road registered sidecar outfit which I use for enduros and for greenlaning (trail riding) with my girlfriend (who lets me out to play on it as often as I like with no hassle!). Lucky me!

Well my local (30 miles away) BMW dealer might be able to remap it. Waiting on a call back from the tech there that sounded promising in a voice mail. saves me a 4+ hr road trip....

How well do those leading link forks wrok when the hack is off the bike? Are they as heavy as they look? How much do they weigh compared to stock, and where did you find leading links for a Husky?

Whoever does it, make sure they or you actually ride it a couple times while it's warmed up after they tune with it. Thats the biggest part of it. Every bike is different. Thats why experience where to start and what direction to head with the iBeat is key. Personally I'd go with who ever has the most experience with the iBeat and Husky's even if it's a longer trip. But then again, I'm one that drove 7,000 + miles round trip to have George do it and ride a couple days od Baja... It was worth every mile though..

I am not ruling out making the road trip at all and I understand your views as mine are very similar.

The sidecar isnt removable it is a one piece chassis that has been modified to fit the Husqvarna parts.The chassis is a three year old one called a VMC made in Holland.Yes the front end weighs more than conventional forks but they stand up to the rigours of sidecar racing better.
