Front Fender

Anyone tried the white KTM fender as a replacement for the blue Husaberg fender? $30 price difference and wondering if it fits.

Hey SR, Just curious if your bike was bone stock and it melted the wire? Or, had the tank been off before? Hoping to learn how to avoid this potential trouble. Thanks!!

Thanks man. I hope this sorts it all out for good.

As far as the Akra, I figured it couldn't hurt and maybe could only help as far as the heat goes. It gets mighty toasty in the summers here...

Heat Mitigation Mods

Just finished up all of the heat mitigation mods on my 390 last night. Most of these have been talked about on this thread but an idea or two I also learned at the unofficial husaberg forum.

I'm thinking about one of these for my Berg in Texas. Wonder if it might be possible to put the inspection sticker in this spot and then cover it with some sort of clear tape to minimize wear.
