    klr hub to suit husky rear.

    cush drive conversion.

    custon axle (smaller dia)spacers for swingarm disc, bearings

    Turned the husky 610 into a super smoth enduro machine with extra service life for the transmision.
    very easy conversion if you have a decent lathe . wheels are cheep too.

    Life is WAY more fun w/ a small mill and lathe (and a bunch of other tools). It was either do this sort of stuff or hang out at the local bar with a beer in one hand and a pool cue in the other... which isn't a bad way to go either.

    Just finally found a few square feet to park my toys. Still working on getting my power situation squared away and then I hope to start turning perfectly good hunks of metal into chips on the floor.

    nice..... i've been dreaming about doing this for my ZRX. it's a total pain trying to tune the pilots on 4 carbs, would be way easier w/FCR style aftermarket needles....
