That is the Squadron kit that comes with the Polisport mask.

Personally I don't like that one as much. Depending on which mask you have now, you can get the 08+ KTM kit and it should bolt right on, or if you have the Euro style mask then get the 05-07 KTM kit and do the mods as described perfectly by Cyborg here:

if you want to use your OEM mask you can order the KTM kit as well



The thing is insanely bright.. makes night riding a breeze... please excuse the dirty bike. it is plug and play.. the fader is kind of big and hard to get behind the mask.. but it was simple.. I suck at anything electronic and even I could install it. You need to dremel down some plastic on the tab to get it adjusted low enough..but it is no big deal.

Does anyone have any new info about when the 70-degree racing sub-frame tank might be back on the market?

The Pirelli MT16 rear and Bridgestone M59 front are a proven combination for riding the knarliy trails of New England .... mud, roots, rocks, hills ... this is a proven combo.

I'm not involved at all just providing information.

Thanks Dave - I've also had an email from Dale Convington, and it seems they are still having some problems with the mold.

That I don't understand.

Not sure why production hasn't resumed where it previously left off.

Must have been some issues I guess, but people seemed pretty happy with the old tank ...

The old tank would leak at the 5mm bolts that held the battery box in place... also the holes where the rear side pannels would mount were giving some folks issues. My understanding is that the search for a new manufaturer revolved mostly around getting these areas beefed up.

Tks – well, that’s a good thing.
Getting a bit urgent for me now – might need to look at the Safari rear tank soon – the Safari front tank seems to get the thumbs down by a lot of people ...

One of my 5mm bolts leaks at that spot too, after 1200 miles of use and
beating the hell out of my 390 in the Rainbow Trail. I still ride it but don't fill up past that bolt. I'm on the list too. I love the tank, and how well it integrates with the bike and balance.

That's one of the changes in the new tank, better inserts and more uniform thickness in the walls among other things. Dale can tell you more. He had to try and find a better roto molder to make the tanks since the previous fab house had too many problems. I hear he's had to go through many, many bad runs developing the better mold and spin/heat process, and that he intends to make enough for for all the new orders, warranty and other special consideration tanks, plus hopefully some left over for the remaining 70degree converts. Dale is probably easier to contact on the Husaberg.org forum. He doesn't frequent ADV very much as I understand.

How to reduce vibration at handlebars?

I just installed some HDB gaurds, and wanted to reduce vibes at the same time. I see that HDB sells some inserts. I thought I saw another company that only sells inserts for motos too.

What are people's experiences with attacking this? What did you use/buy, and is anyone else using something like this with HDB gaurds?

I have the stock Husaberg grips. My right hand will go completely numb after 20 mins or hwy riding, this is with very light touch/grip on the bar.


TIA
