Thanks for the info.

Oh wait. Didn't you modify your case so that there's more space in there?
Not so much for that part tho.

15/47 gets me 70mph at just under 5000 RPM. A 16 would be great for highway cruising. 17 seems excessive.

Mounted up a couple new Motoz tires last night. It was painfully simple, I assumed they would be a PITA due to their stiff sidewalls. Going to romp on the bike finally this weekend and see what I can get myself into with em.

Fuses / lights

Another question

Looking in the manual, they point to 3 fuses in the fuse area, one of which is a spare. Either I am blind (it was a bit dark in the garage), or something as I can only find 2 15A fuses.

Looking at the Parts manual, they show a different fuse location away from the central fuse area, for another fuse?

I was fiddling with my lights last night (Trailtech HID/MR16) on a relay. The symptoms are that the lights (tail light and head light) do not come on. However, if I put on the park lights, the tail light and headlight (which is wired via a relay that will cause this) come on, which tells me that my custom relay / fuses are fine.

I"m going to head down to see if I spot anything else: anybody got any other ideas on where to look?

Added: One parts diagram seems to show an additional fuse that I can't find in the owners manual, and the dealer claims there is one up in the front headlight area...

Yup. Problem solved. Contrary to what I could find in the owner's manual, there are two additional fuses front of the stem, a pain to get to, given that I'm running aftermarket lights. So the bike has 4 blade fuses, one of which in theory is a spare....

Has there ever been an over-front-fender steering damper for the Husky line? My KLX has a WER damper that sits atop the front fender; I like that it is very unobtrusive while doing its job.

Ooh , can't wait to hear your impressions! Which ones did you go with? I can't decide if I should run the Desert H/T or the Enduro I/T...

Has anyone here given up on the bolts and simply welded the footpeg brackets directly to the frame? I don't know of any bolts available in the right size that go beyond a 12.9 grade.
Yes.

IIRC, the rear is a Desert and the front is an Enduro, but I might have them backwards.

There is a heck of a step on the bead giving the rim a lot of protection. Lugs are beefy as ever.

I've read lots of great reviews on the Enduro I/T front...think it might finally be the tire to help this front end stick.

I rode yesterday for the first time in a month and a half. It was bee raining and I have been out of town a lot...bummer! Anyway, I was flying along and thought....this thing sure has loud tyres, a lot louder than I remember. Then it dawned on me that they felt squirly....yep, both were aired down to abo9ut 12~15psI! I rode home and filled them both to 25 since I ride mostly street durring the week, and now the bike feels tight, taught, and is WAY quieter. Also put the screen back in the Leo Vince since having it out made the bike louder than shit and not a ton faster. Man, quieter sure is nice for a change! The thing also needed new turn signals, the little ones on it all were intermittent and one broke and one had a bad lamp. I just replaced them all and now everything works flawlessly and it's safer anyway. Rode in today might get some puddle jumping opps since it is supposed to rain.....hope so as I remembered my rain suit!

I have the MT21 front still, D606 rear, good combo for me.

That's the beauty of it. All riders are different and I am far from skilled off road.

Can I get, or would it even be advisable to go to something like a 17/47 for a long highway ride?
The stock gearing is good for triple digits and the wind wins before top gear runs out so I see no value in gearing up. Seems that others have reported that 5th will get them more speed than 6th.
