So the adventurization of my TE511 begins. Some say that the bike is just a dirt bike with tags....they may be right but I think it can be more....way more. So as I build it I will post the updates and changes...the good, bad, and the ugly of the build and the shortcomings of the bike if any. So what's my goal.....Minimum 200 mile fuel range, comfortable seat, and able to haul my camping gear and miscellaneous other stuff for up to a short multi week adventure. I am sure I will have more requirements as I really sit down and work through the details but these will do for a start. Check back to this post regularly as this is where I will post updates to my plan and also which post you can go to for each upgrade. First upgrade is the pegs or should I say peg extensions. Since my foot is still pretty screwed up from last years incident I figured that a large platform on which to stand would be a good investment. So I got a hold of Zip Ty racing and placed an order for their peg extensions, they seem to be a leader in aftermarket parts for the Husky. These should make life pretty good! So if you remember back a couple of years ago Bill Conger, an instructor from the BMW off road school, attempted Dakar but it didn't work out so well. In the process of the build of his TE449 he did quite a few things which I thought were pretty good so I took note and waited for the day I got my own TE. One of the things I worry about is that Husky parts may become difficult to locate or that what little aftermarket there is may dry up so some parts may be purchased first just so that when they dry up I already have them, which is the case with my next part. An adapter for an external oil cooler from Zip Ty racing. Upgrade #2, the way I figure it cooler oil is happy oil, to a certain point, and more volume is good as well...especially for the long hauls, so I bought the part that I thought may be hard to come by and the more generic parts, i.e., oil cooler and lines, I will pick up a bit latter as time and $$ permit. The bonus is that the kit comes with a reusable filter so if you are out somewhere and flood the bike out, filter replacement won't be an issue, just change the oil and clean filter and carry on. Pretty nice piece!
