    Great shot, and I like how you pack nice and light too.

    How's the bike so clean! Even the rims are gleaming:dunno

    Front is supplied with the Radegarage Kit, the rear blinkers are cheap Ebay crap but they have actually lasted 2 years !

    Clean because they have been spinning in 2nd and 3rd gear through (clean & dry ) red Madigan track sand for 3 days, and any dust got lashed off when careering through grevillea and acacia bushes when Husqvarna decides to make short cut off track !!! no mud on this trtip.!

    Hey Outbackflyer, sounds like a great trip! Would be interested to hear how the Rade airbox / filter setup performed. I’ve got the same setup and am happy with it but have yet to ride in dusty conditions with it.
    Cheers,
    Viktor

    Victor, hey yes it was a great trip across the madigan,hay,qaa line, then was great to relax in Birdsville (we rented a 5 berth cabin at the Birdsville caravan park), was very nice to unpack and clean up, enjoyed good foods/beers at the pub etc.
    We retraced to poeppells then 40 Ks of the french lint to Knolls track and rig road across to Mt Dare.
    I like the upgrade to the Radegarage airbox/tank assy, and although Rade says the replacement tank had to be reduced to accommodate the new airbox I found I can still squeeze 6 litres into it on a cold day.I found the filter to work very well in bulldust conditions on day rides up here where I might spend time running through others dust, as for the Simpson there was no time that this happened, its clean air for the most part its only out blatting through cattle properties that we really get dusted up here.
    I have retained the small K&N engine breather filter from the original Rade Kit and attached that to the short tube coming from the breather box, it just sits under the left side cover , so I blanked off the hole in Rade airbox where that would normally attach, as I dont like any breather debri (oils/condensation)coating the filter or being ingested into the throttle tube and coating the sensors within.
    I found the top section of the Twin Air element comes into contact with the seat base, leaving a "clean spot" on the surface and a bit of filter oil on the seat base but this is a minor issue.
    Its very handy to carry a spare filter sealed in a plastic bag on the longer trips as changing out takes only 2 minutes.
    Some folks report seeing dirt in the throttle tube and blaming the product but I have not seen any such problem, I suspect its due to improper fitting of the foam element , like all systems they need to be handled carefully.sure is better to be using the original intake tube in the new kit makes fitting more secure and precise.IMO.
    Hope this helps, cheers. John.
