Have the 47T and 15T Ironman sprockets on the last week with a new chain. I like the combo for general duty and freeway commuting. Tonight I swapped in an Ironman 14T. So will find out what 14/47 does for me on the freeway enroute to the trails - buzzy I am sure, but should be decent compromise for weekend duty I expect. Will change back to the 15T for weekday commuting. Had 14/45 before all of this new stuff whcih was not bad on the trails, but still too high, too much clutch work required, so this ought to be nicer experience on the trails this weekend. I like the circlip (snapring) CS for fast changes.

My Highway Dirt Bikes system should arrive Tuesday. Moving from stock 7/8" bars and Cycra handguards to Henry Reed bend fat bars and folding mirrors, handguards, and the 1 3/4" lower clamps. It will come with one of the first of Paul's new damper submount (for a Scotts damper) so will be testing that out next week and soon posting the good news on that. I want some rise over stock so hopefully I calculated it all correctly. If it is not high enough can still go to 2 1/8" lower clamps. The submount will lift it all up some.

I have about 3/8" clearance between the IMS tank and head tube. Still looking at pin mounting options. The Scotts '07 510 mount ring/post looks like it might fit. Mostosports has a new 2 piece one out for the small bikes, might fits the TE610 also? Worst case I get creative and make my own.

Let us know what you figure out as far as the damper goes...I've got the full HDB setup on mine and it's SWEET!! I love the front and rear LED turn signals, much cleaner looking and nothing to break off. I also have Paul's upper clamp that has two Powerlet sockets in it...I might just have to get his exterior mounting brackets for the Powerlets if you can use a damper with his new one...Damn, more farkles...

Enduro model. It is just right for the Husky. In the case you are standing and leaning enough, it will bend to the side easy enough. Just the right size for my superzoom camera (in neoprene slip cover (Zing) and trail goodies, gloves.

When you view the picture on smugmug, click share. I chose medium size.

Size doesn't matter (I know, I know), what's important is the URL needs to end in a viable image extension, like .jpg, .png or .gif

The one you used didn't. I pasted the URL into my browser and it loaded the page, then I clicked Share and went from there.

It's a great bag and is the perfect size for this bike. It swivels out of the way easily to fill the fuel tank and holds more than you think it would. It also has a clear map/phone pocket on top which is useful...

I broke off one of the little plastic fuel hose connection thingy's underneath the fuel pump

Whats the latest fix for this? I saw a few post in which one guy drilled and tapped the fuel pump base (I'm hoping there's a quicker fix).

The bike's still under warranty, but seeing as it broke due to my own stupidity I doubt that its covered!

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

To my Knowledge that's the only fix. I had mine done by George @ Up-tite.

Course, you could be the trailblazer we've all been waiting for to try that external Honda ATV Pump!

Thanks a lot Xymotic. I'll try getting hold of him tomorrow. Did you break yours as well? How much did it cost to get it fixed? How long did it take?
