so my idea got away from me a bit, but I'm sure no one will have a cover that will look like this when I finish. Thank god I have another unmolested one for regular use.

BTW, where can I find the same screen that's on these?

Life is good!

I thought you rode a TE? You're not worried about water with all those openings?

I do. I have an unmolested one on the bike. This one was an extra one I had laying around. I saw my friends babies toy ( the shape in the box game ) and went crazy. I did it for fun is all, but want to see it through to the end. Maybe I'll use it if I ever do a sumo set up on the TE.

Baja Designs Racelight - horn location

@1Lunger, check McMaster-Carr.

-------------------

I'm installing the Baja Designs racelight with Boatman's H4 conversion. The stock horn interferes with the plastic housing. Enough other people have done this, someone has to have a clean solution. Where did you put the horn?

Any super-clean solutions for the brake line to keep it from rubbing the bracket on that side?

I'd be interested in what you figure out. My TE-610 came with the BD Racelight installed and the horn removed. I really hate not having a horn so looking for ways to install it.

Also, I had no idea about the H4 conversion, thanks for mentioning it and I just finished reading that thread on here. I like the BD light output when I need it, but not having a low beam has made me keep the light pointed really low to not blind on coming traffic.

I cut the bracket down a bit and put it on the side like this:

Quick help with the FI fuel hoses

Okay, I took my Safari tank off last week and now I'm second guessing myself on the 2 fuel hose connections.

This is on an 09 TE-610 with FI.

I have a red & white connection on the fuel pump


I have these two hoses with white & grey. You would think white would go to white and grey to red, but that's where I'm not sure?


The grey one comes around to the left side of the bike and attaches to this brass piece and then down into the throttle bodies.


The white one loops around, but comes back to the ride sight of the bike and actually thins down and hooks to this piece




So am I correct. Grey line to red connector and white to white?

Well, I just noticed the Red is labeled "out" and the only place that one makes sense is hooked to the grey one for fuel to get into the throttle bodies.

Actually your thread helped with a few other things. I bought my bike with the Safari 6.6 gal tank already on it, so I didn't have to install it the first time and this was the first time I had ever pulled the tank. I see a few things I need to go back and check on too.

BTW, I got mine hooked up and it runs so I guess I got the lines correct!

Very nice pics.

Having the Husky really makes me want to move out west now. I've ridden out there many times on my street bikes on trips, but never off road. My wife and I talked about the possibility of moving to NM late last year, but haven't made that happen yet.

We are getting ready to ride the TN & MS sections of the TAT that have been re-mapped out for 2012 and the MS Hill Country, plus some other stuff I've seen posted on ADV I wanted to add in.

Scott's Damper with Safari Tank

The Scott's damper for the TE610 works fine with the Safari tank, btw. Here are a couple of pics of that, here:
