It will be Husqvarna specific. There are enough changes from the BMW Rotax that will require different mapping.

Is it required? probably. Every service service on my F800 requires a hook up. Both to read codes and send the data to Spandau if requested.

I doubt if that is any different than any modern fuel injected bike with an ECU.
FWIW the my 650 Strom and 650 Versys are both EFI/ECU and neither "required" any special hook up at every service.
Perhaps under special condtions (dont know, never needed), but not at every service
BTW neither needed to "update" the maps either....they got them right the first time.

My BMW X-Challange did however.
I suspect its a BMW thing not an EFI/ECU thing.

My Tiger 1050 has had several EFI map updates, I recently put on a new Arrow exhaust = new Arrow specific tune. Runs great, and my dealer charges me a whopping $25 to do it...

I'm digging the Husky crowns on the exhaust,

Ok, Stu now imagine your dealer is 7 hours away.
Ill bet you would not feel as happy about having to do updates and that an independent shop can't do anything with the bike.

The only thing they can't do is load new EFI maps or look for fault codes.
If the EFI works well, it's a non-issue.

I own a 2008 TE610, it's fuel injected and has never been to the dealer, runs like a frickin' race bike!
Smoothest injection ever, I defy anyone to ride it and be able to tell the difference between it and a carbureted bike.

Yup if the EFI works well its a non-issue.
I am really hoping the TR 650's have more husky and less BMW in their EFI performance.

Just throwing it out there. DLs will throw codes for a malfunction. The odometer will say "chec". You don't need a dealer to put it on some crazy machine to figure it out either. Pop the seat off find the dealer mode plug and stick a paper clip in there and the code (or codes in case of multiple faults) will show up on the odometer. Keep a pdf of the service manual on a laptop/netbook or smart phone and you'll probably be able to figure out what is wrong before someone stops to ask if you need help.

Now on topic, I may seriously consider this bike when it comes time for my DL to get a little sister. I think it's a pretty good base platform for what a lot of people would do with it. Including myself.

I was told the Husky "crown" was actually a gun sight with the barrel end....... ??? ...... and that came from the time in the past when they made guns????

Apparently so ..... from Husqvarna's website......

"The Husqvarna logotype
The symbol being the Husqvarna logo refers to our gunsmithing history. To the right you see the oldest form as the hallmark of a passed musket, symbolizing the sight over the barrel. You see also the modern version indicating that Husqvarna is still keeping the future in sight."

Congrats Mark! Been following this for quite awhile, but not ready to retire my 610 yet.

Diagnostics, wonder if the gs911 for the f650 singles will work on this?

Big Dog,

Is this bike replacing your 250 for your longer trips?

is this a crazy idea?

looking at the specs of the strata version and not much different so I was thinking I like tubeless tires so if Igot a strada instead and slapped a set of heidenaus on them would that work. not sure how much you would lose offroad being cast and not spoked wheels. street riding would probably be better. it would be like having a smaller version of my r1200gs except for the cast rims. I have taken my bike on some pretty bad jeep trails and I think this bike would eat those up.
