Wonder how much light those LEDs put out. They make it sound good.

"white high brightness LED’s ensures exceptional visibility at night, and is produced by two groups of 10 LED’s, with two 20W spotlights placed in the center for optimal visibility."

It's pretty mean/alien looking. Looks like it came off a Cagiva Raptor.

If you mean filter you can't go wrong with a Twinair. I'd have to look but I'm pretty sure that's what came on my '08.

The manufacturer probably assumed everyone was gonna leave the bikes in the barn till the temps went above 50.
I'm not sure of the level of sophistication RR. FI Husky's have a "choke." I always thought it was odd for an FI bike to have such a thing. I'm not even sure what it really does because I haven't looked to see if it actually operates the butterfly. But, one can assume that Mikuni recognized that a choke would "help" cold starting and actually put one in there. It suggests that the ECM is not very sophisticated and a manual device was the best (cheapest) thing to do. I have used mine on occasion, when it sits for a long time but take it off almost immediately. All I know is that I have gotten over 70 calculated mpg with a fully loaded bike in Geek's back yard this past TAT trip. I luv FI!

There are some videos on youtube showing them.
They don't put out sh*t for light.
Though the white LEDs might make you more noticeable to oncoming traffic.

here's a random one:

It's just a "fast idle" lever. It doesn't change the mixture or anything, since the FI take cares of that. Adds a few 100 RPM to the idle. I always use mine when the engine is cold, regardless of ambient temp.

..... now that sounds like a good idea. I still have the side bracket's for my set up if ya need them. In my Motorcycle Consumer News they have a product review of a light relay kit that gives you more out put from your headlight. You will take a hit on the life of the bulb (Sylvania runing more than 12 V from 7500 to 1400 hours) but it could be worth it. The kit runs the bulbs at 13.68 V. It hooks right in with out having to cut anything. I might try this on the setup I have and lst ya know how it works. The name if the company that makes it is Eastern Beaver.... H4 Headlight Relay Kits.


Just a little update on my '08...... the battery is done. One year and kept inside in the winter. It will not hold a charge for long in the cold even riding it everyday. I've had to put it on the charger to keep it so it will start the bike. Picked up a Deka (gel) today and will put it in tomarrow. Two year warranty so we shall see how this one holds up.

Finally got around to doing something about my subframe. With a few pieces of .062 galvanized sheet (all I could find laying around) I bent up some L shaped brackets. Painted all the parts trying to ward off rust and oxidation, but we'll see how it holds up.

It seems much stiffer now with the whole thing sandwiched between the main subframe and the Dirtbagz brackets. Hmmm, looks like I could do a little cleaning under there...






I'm hoping this isn't too much load for the tail. There's a lot of weight in that bag full of camping gear. I refuse to give up my heavy air mattress!
Hmmm, looks like I could de-clutter the shop a little too...

I'm still on the original and haven't looked for a spare yet, but I'm guessing it may be hard to find other than at a Husky dealer. I looked on the Twinair site and didn't see one, but that doesn't mean they don't make it. Maybe someone else has purchased an aftermarket one.

Hey Gents,

I'm going to put speed bleeders on the 610... anyone off the top of their head know which diameter the Husky uses?

7mm? 8mm? 10mm?

I bought a spare.. its a twin air.

We pulled the air filter out of a brand new 2008 610 on the show room floor to match it up (since the dealer couldn't figure out the part number).

The "from the factory" 610 had a twin air in it.. same as mine.
