Previous owner put on a scott dampener, 5 gal safari tank and Fluidyne rads/pump. Also got an oil cooler with it, still in box. And it has an 8" LaPaz headlight.

The only fault I can see with it so far is a bent front rim. Mine usually end up looking like a stop sign anyhow, so not such a big deal to me.

I'm pretty excited to put some miles on it.

I wouldn't call it "common"...no more so than any other hard core dirt bike that gets used as such.

9000 mile report - 2010 TE450

The only things going wrong on this bike are the fault of the mechanic! Waiting now on bearings for the linkage, 18 months of ignoring the maintenance led to complete rust and pulverization of 3 of the 7 bearings in the linkage. Otherwise, the bike runs strong, no oil usage, had to start using octane booster, I think I am getting carbon build-up in the combustion chamber. I'll tear it down at 10,000 miles and install a little thicker head gasket. Mobil1 15w/50 every 800 miles or so. Started getting some golden hair-like stuff in the filter, can't figure that out. The bike eats rear tires for a snack, when a tire gets to 50% and below, the bike cannot maintain any traction on the powerband. Still love the bike, it rips.

Yes, as far as I know there were only two oversized options. IMS in 3.9 & Clarke I think was slightly smaller

I thought Safari made a super tanker for the Husky?

I think they are talking carb and the Safari is for FI, isn't it?

Sun Valley Riding

I was working up in Sun Valley, ID the other week and had my bike with me. My friend and co-worker lived there for 10 years so knew the trail systems. There much be hunderds of miles of single track and double track up to ride. So amazing!!!! We rode so much I did not have much time for pictures.

I did have one issue that caused a bit of a problem until I figured it out. I have replaced the fuel filter and in-tank line as many of us have and for some reason the fuel line slipped off the fuel pump (CA cycleworks pump) resulting in fuel starvation to the engine in the middle of no where! After an hour, figured it out and fixed it (yes, I take nessesary tools with me on these kinds of rides as ya never know what might happen!). All was good again and blazed some more single track! I am going to run some safety wire around the hose clamp and the pump to keep it in place as the pump has no flange to help keep the hose in place. I'll snap some pics when I open it again.

OK, now some pics:

Silver stock pump on the left- notice barbs on top to help keep the hose in place- one on the right does not have this hence why the hose was able to slip off.








My buddies 2 stroke GasGas on the right. Sweet bike.

right, 07 was the last year with carb. i was looking at the safari website some time ago, and from the description there it should fit. BUT that thing is serious money.
i can get a new IMS 3.9gal for about 190eur/235$ while the safari would be something like 700Eur. tha australian dollar is very strong currently.
except for the price, i would prefer a safari tank, had one in australia on a xr 650 r, zero issues.

cheers

Is there anywhere I can get an inexpensive aftermarket rear rotor. I've only seen some on ebay for about $150. I know I can get the oem at Halls but I can't stand the "tinging" sound coming from the floating rotor.

I'm guessing you would also need a new rear caliper then for solid mounted rotor so the combo would not be cheap. I recall of some people putting "O" rings behind the rotor around the mounting bolts & claims of being rid of the rattle.

Where do you get online parts from a reputable place for a Husky?

For Canucks like us, Ross Rocher works. I've used Gnarly Parts out of Richmond BC as well. I like to avoid waiting for customs to release packages when possible.

Great, thanks.

My bike is in Phoenix though. A US distributor will work just as well!
