Removing the Safari is needed for valve work as well. Some folks say it is a 20 minute procedure. Being a creative wrench, I turn it into a several hour exercise ....draining, re-routing fuel lines, , worrying about stripping Allen bolt on sides, etc....

The screw holding injector (Phillips, I believe) needs a tap to loosen as it could be easy to strip (should be a Roberts ).


But I have been wrong before.
Txs for the info, sounds like a job for a workshop then, in the meantime i will use injector cleaning fluid!!

I thought I posted this yesterday but it must have gotten lost in the series of tubes.

I welcome Husky getting the 690 motor. Maybe they will be able to take the "risk" of building a 690 adv. Plus, we will get some more color options for plastics and bling parts

What size thread & pitch ?

Does anyone happen to know what size thread/pitch the KTM 690 has on the mirror mounts ? I'd like to order a RAM mount 1" ball with male thread, but my bike is 50 miles away right now...

Thanks

You know, at the risk of having my KTM man-card revoked, given the choice between Orange/white/black, or Blue/white/yellow, I'd take the Husky colors any day...

Double take lists all KTM mirrors as a 10mm x 1.25

My first bike was orange frame, white fairing. I wanted to put Husa fork guards and front fender on her. I thought a small amount of orange, white and some blue would be good. Time will tell though. Fingers crossed. Exciting things to come it looks like.

That sounds kind of Miami Dolphins 80's color esque which I was a big fan of!

The post a couple above SethS's made me dig around a bit last night. There was a bunch of info out last Spring about this. From what I can gather it seems that...

1. It wasn't KTM per se but the CEO of KTM Stevan Pierer using a personally owned company to purchase Husky. http://www.mcnews.com.au/NewsArchive...Husky_Sold.htm Maybe to expedite things? Maybe to help reduce friction with anti-trust legislation?

2. This coming year Husabergs will be rebranded as Huskys. They will switch colours to White, yellow & blue. The Husaberg factory will be shutdown soon.

3. In 2015 The Husky's will start off from a KTM platform bike, and will have a focus on off-road (as opposed to dual sport use). Husky's production in Italy will be shut down and moved to Austria. Husky will develop an off-road only 690 variant.

4. The Husky deal excludes certain models using a BMW engine--the 450 in particular was mentioned. I'm not sure if it includes the 650 class Rotax engines.

5. BMW is moving towards electric scooter production ("e-mobility"). As a segment of their line up.

There is a thread on ADVRider and other bits and pieces out on the web.

There maybe some erroneous info in what I put together above--it was the best I could piece together with about a hours searching/reading. If anyone finds errors in it please post up the correct info.

Addendum: I see from the Husky SM concept bike posted above in this thread that Husky is probably not doing *just* off-road in the future.

Preferably, with the yellow frame of the '12 Husabergs.

I suspect this will drive the value of my 09 Husaberg up significantly so if anyone wants to get in on a piece of gold before the value departs from your price range let me know. Lets start the bidding at say $12000

I bought an 09 a few months ago. When I'm riding snottier and tighter trails, I tend to clutch a lot. Several times, I have lost my clutch completely, look in reservoir, no fluid. Where does it go? Is this the bad clutch slave issue, and will replacing the clutch slave solve my problem.

I would start by flushing out the hydraulic system with fresh fluid. If that doesn't do it you might have a bad clutch slave...they have been problematic on some bikes.
