Nope. I tried another 45 watt bulb and it's doing the same thing. Steady and/or blinking high beam indicator on low beam?

I guess I'll just live with it. And my battery icon will still flash on low beam with the 45 watter. On high beam not as much so. I don't think it flashing indicates an overcharge, just that it is charged? A little annoying though.

Thanks. FYI I switched the stock 15t CS sprocket to a 14t CS (A 12 spline [spline?] Moose Racing sprocket) that made a huge difference in the woods with hardly any compromise on the street. In fact I can still do 72 MPH comfortably and the revs seem happier in every gear on the street. I never got out of 1st much in the woods with the stock sprocket and found I had to use the clutch a lot more often which made the bike run really hot in the technical stuff. I'm not sure how much chain wear a 14t sprocket causes but other than that it really sweetened the bike for under $20!

I don't think this answers your question but here are the only changes I've made (I'm 178 lbs.):
- Adjusted cold sag to ~3.54" (service manual setting). This took 4 turns more preload relative to stock.
- No compression or rebound changes on the rear
- Went up 3 clicks on front (fork) compression, 0 rebound.
- With the new sag I had to move my forks down to the last ring (lowest / tallest) on the triple clamp. The bike came set to the highest (shortest) and I originally moved it to middle after adjusting sag but the steering was still too quick for my MT21 front tire. I'm 6'-2" so the last ring and new sag made the bike taller and feel great.

Later men.

Husky 610 video

Here's a little diddy I made the other day to try the helmet cam out.

Not fancy or high speed. Nothing like a big single, big torque, tall gearing and bald Karoo's!

A little Anthrax for you in the background too and don't mind the gratuitous wheelies....I can't help it.

Head banger or Hooligan?

Thanks for posting, that was fun. So what kind of folding mirror is that?

Also, can someone help a newbie out and tell me how to get the front wheel off the ground? I've only been doing this offroad thing since Feb when I got my TE.

I don't need to ride wheelies now I just want to learn how to get the front wheel up and over stuff and then I can graduate to hooligan status. :)

Oh and very nice place you have there!

Awesome video, the little bit-O hooliganism at the end was a nice touch, I'm sure there's people wondering about the offroad abilities of the bike, they won't wonder after seeing the video, thanx for posting it & do more

The folding mirror is the stock one from the TE 250/450/510....I love it! And on the wheelies just sit back, preload and rip it up!

Thanks for the video, 123

You've answered my question as to whether the 610 is to heavy for the places I want to go.

Lovely! Makes me glad i bought an -07 myself :)
You´re fast in the woods! And that folding mirror is now second on my wishlist, after a skidplate.

"No trees were harmed during the making of this video" = precious!

Solid work 123 (both analogue and digital). Any affection for TOOL or Mudvayne by chance?

Love Tool and Mudvayne. Anything that's gets the head bobbing and blood boiling!

Thanks for all the comments!

Thumb 610 on the trail

Woohoo!! If anyone has doubts about a 610 on the trail husky123 answered it.

Why doesn’t my bike handle like that?

AWESOME!!!!! Man I'm putting a helmet cam on my X-mas list!!!!! Are you shifting from 2nd to 3rd in the air????? I thought I heard a shift during the wheelies...... Your light is stressing ME out..... With all do respect.... is the bulb a 45w. only or a 45/45w. I'm sure you have the right one but I'm losing control of myself again, this is another icon that I MUST conquer!!


Great vid!!!! SG
