the mighty Husqvarna FE350S

Any other owners of the Husqvarna FE350S? I would love to see some photos of other specimens! :)

First impression of the bike is that it's so good, it's hard to find fault. Except of course that the stock gearing is WAY TOO TALL. Nothing a sprocket and chain swap can't fix.

Suspension is amazing and the bike feels lighter than I expected. I'm glad I chose the 350.

These are such great looking bikes! Very nice, I'll be watching this thread for updates. Was a possible option for the lady in the future.

I'm loving the 350... It doesn't look brand new any more :)

Any recommendations for handguards?

How do I keep the kick stand from automatically popping up? I don't understand this "feature" - is this an evil plan to sell more parts when people knock their bikes over? Makes no sense to me.

Any thoughts on suitable gearing for offroad riding?

2ride, check your blue folder, there should be a countersunk screw in it. Remove the one on the bike and put that one in place, problem solved.
Kickstand is for DOT legal bikes, Its a PITA.

Gearing: what do you want the bike to do? How much road work how much climbing or desert? The stock gearing is terrible for anything other than running 120 down the freeways.

Im at 13/48 now, likely going to 14/52. Mostly forest and desert for me.
