Thanks, Larry
I ran the spark arrestor and I think it is louder for shure. At first with the stock insert installed I thought it was as quiet as original muffler except when getting on it...I don't think it will be as quiet as stock regardless of insert but it definately runs better. I did some Hwy riding this weekend and now in 6th it pulls much much stronger. There is a very noticably difference with the pipe and jetting...
There is one forum member who installed the quiet insert from another pipe...will track down the info again and add it to thread.

I installed the prescribed jets that came with the JD kit.
#180 Main Jet
Red Needle 5th clip
Edit: Dan at Motoxotica informed me he sent #45or #48 Pilot Jet will check next time I mess with carb...
Leak Jet installed
Thick O-ring on linkage
Zipty fuel screw 1-1/2 turns out from seated. I have yet to attempt to fine tune the fuel screw but I need to adjust idle in the morning until the bike warms up...
I am at 800' asl...

Fast forward. I was holding out real well but then I read BuffaloDan's report of this "new" bike with the Leo Vince slippy and JD's kit. So I figured what the heck.

Well I'm here to tell you the TE six honey runs as intended now for sure! Night and day, black and white. It's just that much better. Gosh I love this bike.

Glad you like it Lee,
I got a chance to ride mine this weekend and did 260 miles with 20 miles of trail and man it ripped . I installed a 14T to experiment but more importantly I rode with confidence for the first time. I knew it wouldn't bog on me so I was able to jump all the holes; I can't say enough about how much fun this bike is...even with tools and some camping gear on the bike it handled the fairly tight trail with ease.

Oh and those Bridgestone Ultra Heavy Duty tubes are the real deal. I hit a few ledges hard at speed and no pinch flats , I was running 18psi but I could feel the rim getting some love from the sandstone...

Right now I have the "open" end cap in. I may try the 96 here soon. I went with a 178 main, 48 PJ, new leak from JD and the red needle in the 5th. FS is set at 2 turns out. I'll do a plug test shortly but she feels real strong right now. Vibes (I know, what vibes?) are better too but that's probably from freeing up some backpressure.

Right now the end cap is probably as loud or a little louder than stock....but not much though! 96 has got to be pretty tolerable I'd say. I'll try that one this weekend with and without the spark arrestor.

14 toother huh? I'll bet that made it more fun on the trail! Where does that put you on the tach at 60 mph in 6th?

I wouldn't bother getting dirt wheels for a SM. I tried taking my SM610 on several dirt routes, and it sucked. The suspension on the SM is not setup for rough pavement, it's not just the travel, but the valving is different. Going the other way, I think you would still have a good time, with either wheel set.

I like to ride at 4000rpm:

14T at 4000rpm 50mph
16T at 4000rpm 60mph

The rear tire caught it trying to keep up with Ned and Terry MC (aka sucking their dust) in the sand whoops. It lasted about 3 miles before looking like a peeled back sardine tin lid.

Rear bags

I brought up the idea of using bicycle panniers last year I think but it took me until this summer to get off my ass & try it. I had a bracket made to bolt onto my Promoto Billet rack with the optional pannier supports.
The bracket is made of 3/8 rod & 1/8 plate 6061-T6 aluminum:



Here you can see the Schwinn Voyageur panniers mounted (I've had these laying around the garage for years). The right side has a sleeping bag stuffed inside just to see how it fit.



Another shot of my big test last weekend. I rode about 260 miles combined off-road & 70mph+ freeway. I wasn't sure how these would react to both bumps & sustained highway speeds but they worked great.



Now that I know this is a viable alternative to what the dirtbike aftermarket has to offer I'm going to step up & buy some good ones. I've got my eye on these Arkel bags. They cost about the same as a set of Dirtbagz Rangers but are almost twice the capacity & have a pretty slick attachment mechanism. (54 liters vs 30 for the Dirtbagz)



Just thought you guys might like to see this as another alternative for carrying several days worth of gear.
Happy Huskyin' everyone!

Hoder,

Any thoughts on how the brackets will survive getting laid down, especially on the exhaust side? That seems like something I'm going to do to my Husky some day.

Before I found out about the Dirt Bagz, I was also eyeing the bicycle bags and mounts available.

But I'd love to be able to mount a set of hard bags, perhaps from Touratech, with good long term results (no frame cracking, etc.). I always worry when I leave my junk on a bike in soft bags when I go in to a restaurant to eat, etc. Especially some of the places I'll be going with this 'un.

I haven't had the joy of crash testing the pannier supports yet, maybe someone else that has them can chime in (these are a stock Promoto Billet item). I've only seen one post on this & they survived fine. One thing to note is I really need to get some different turn signals. With the 2 spacers that Husky provides to prevent melting they stick too far out & mash into the bags. The Arkels have adjustable mounts so they may be able to be mounted far enough forward to clear but I won't know until I get them. I've been meaning to get some bendy ones any way
The Touratechs from what I understand are a $1200 setup. I don't carry $1200 worth of crap. We were discussing theft on my last ride with the big bike guys & one mentioned that he's only had one problem & that was at a Mariners game someone went thru his tank bag. With this setup or any other soft bag someone could take the whole bag if they wanted them that bad. I'm not going to worry about it & only keep what I need for the ride in them.

If anyone wants a cheap alternative for a windscreen, the one on my 950 was scratched up from tree branches etc so I ordered a new one, ($69 I think). Took the old one and cut off the lower portion so from the middle of the screen at the top to straight down it measures 12". Made some simple brackets by cutting some Lexan and used the top fork pinch bolts for anchors and voila!! I still get some air at helmet level but it doesn't buffet and it takes a lot of windblast off my chest.

If you go to Orange Crush and see how many people complain about their stock wind screens I would imagine you could pick one up cheap.

I'm going to replace the steel bolts that hold the screen to the Lexan mounting tabs with some kind of quick release fastener or maybe just some wingnuts for quick removal. I still haven't found it obtrusive for off roading though.

I've posted this before but as it is a current topic...I am ordering my shield this week.

This will be my solution:



This shield is from a BMW F650 Dakar years 2000 to 2003. It is installed onto a Baja Designs Tecate Headlight.

Fred - can you post some pics of your set-up so we can see what it looks like?


I considered doing something like you did but went with a Laminar Lip held on by dual-lock connectors (description in this thread).

Simple add-on, fairly effective. Here's one pic:
