Love everything else about the bike but I have to figure the overheating out.
Is the jetting set up properly? Do you have an UPTITE "Y". Those help keep the bike nice & cool. You can add a fan as long as you're not running the IMS 3.9 gallon tank.

Aside from the overheating, it runs just fine and the PO did say he had re-jetted so I have to assume yes. It does have the Uptite Y and I am running a Clarke tank. My 450 was definitely jetted correctly and had the Y and it still over heated.

So where do I get the fan - does it come stock on the FI 510's ? Can I get it from Halls or somewhere like that ?

Cheers

The fan is stock on the 2010 and runs off a thermostat.

I'm just assuming the bike is running a bit hot in the tight stuff because the fan was on most of the time. It could also be that Husky has set the bike up w/ a relatively low temperature thermostat and that the bike is running properly. I kind of wish I had a temperature gage.

Thanks

I found the fan and bracket in the parts PDF at Halls. I'll give them a call and see what the scoop is. If nothing else, if I can make it fit, I'll wire it up to a switch so I can turn it on and off myself.

As for a temp gauge, I hated the stock speedo/odo (on mine it only comes on when the engine is running which, quite frankly, is stupid) so I put the Trailtech computer on there (I forget the model) but that does have a temp gauge. It also offers a lot more functionality than the stock speedo, but the model I have does not have neutral lights (you can get them) but I have learned to live with that.

Pull that big plug (DB Killer) you stuck in the end of the exhaust and try it.. I'll bet you notice a significant difference right away both in operating temps and performance.

I looked at this pic again:



Did you use the OEM bracket or just attach the fan to the rad guard ?

Cheers

Where did you find a HID that fit the stock housing? I had to do a ghetto mod to make my HID bulb work.

Im with you on the loud pipe, Im a fan or quieter is better.I just ordered a quite insert. Loud bikes get trails closed around here.


Another solution to the Overheating is try a higher temp radiator cap, that will keep the bubbles out of the radiator fluid longer.

Not sure why your 510 is loud without the db killer??

My 08 TE510 with the Arrow exhaust and sparky in only puts out faint 96db,, hardly anything that is going to cause a concern. I was actually surprised at how quiet it is.

The rad fan is mounted to the OFG Radiator brace as per design.

The HID is a cheap Bi-Xenon HID from VVME with a digital slim ballast.

Vendor Link

Great service and speady delivery.

I had one one my KTM 950 Adv w/ the euro healight and it worked great.

The Bi-Xenon is not as good as a single HID, but still better than stock.

Not sure of it's the Husky reflector or the Bi-Xenon HID that is the issue. I suspect a combination of both.

This is what my bulb looks like:
http://www.vvme.com/bixenondual-beam....html?cPath=15

It fit right in just like the standard bulb. I do have the new and improved 2010 headlight on the HUsky. That might be the difference.

96dB is actually quite loud, certaily loud enough to get our favorite riding areas shut down.

My 2 cents

If I recall correctly , my stock exhaust was stamped at 92 db right from the factory all plugged up with the cat-con and sparky.. There wasn't a noticable difference on the 08 version from stock plugged exhaust to the power-up kit arrow exhaust.~ 4DB.

Does your state have a db limit for their sound compliance checks? Most do.

That's not the issue:

1- I think the Husky exhausts are ambitiously rated for their dB output.

2- The local mandates are still a bit high on the dB side. They are closer to race mandates than practical sound levels that will keep our riding areas open. I prefer to err on the quiet side than be to loud.

Having said that I'm the kind of guy that likes to go on a 500 mile DS ride and cover all kinds of terrain and come back in the middle of the night!

Trailer-queening it to the local riding area and ripping it for a couple of hours just does not do it for me.

I was going to post the same thing - 96 decibels will piss off all non motorcyclists in the forest.

Also, I'm not sure if its a DB-optimism thing or something else, but I've noticed that if a two stroke with a <93db exhaust and four stroke with the same dB rating are riding together and coming toward me I can hear the thumper long before the pinger. I think it is extremely wise to keep it quiet, especially off road - noise is probably one of the biggest reason riding areas get shut down and so very easy to fix.

IIRC its the KLX450 that makes good power in stock form and is extremely quiet - perhaps if nothing else that muffler could be adpated to fit the husqvarna if its not quiet enough for you:)
