Hey Cyborg,

I am getting ready to install my Squadron light and the Skene Design controller. I have the same bike, and was wondering if you could help speed up my wiring or is it pretty straight fwd. Thanks.

Xmoto, I did not (and won't) go into the wiring in my install thread. That would have taken a lot more work to document online and it's too late now, I didn't take pix of that. The wiring is pretty easy if you know electrical wiring well. The Skene dimmer comes with a simple schematic and it is also on their website. How you wire it depends on your switchgear.

Cool, things are looking good for me and I hopefully will be picking up the Husa tomorrow. Let me know if you're coming, though it shouldn't be hard to spot since we should have the only 70 bikes there in a sea of Orange.
I'm not into big group riding at all, but could be fun if we could go ride and get some dual Husaporn photos.

Looks like 3 long 3 short. Check your users manual should have an error code list. Page 77 in my manual " check the injection valve". " Malfunction in injection valve circuit cylinder 1". There is only 1 cylinder so not sure why they say that ;)

Makes sense. I searched my manual - I knew it was in there somewhere, but for the life of me, I couldn't find the codes. Thanks.

I replaced my OEM Yuassa battery right off the bat with a Shorai... I know there has been a lot of discussion about their problems with starting in the cold.. and there are youtube videos that support those problems. Those videos seem to be all about bigger bikes, where I think the CCA of the Shorai battery is fairly close to the OEM requirement.. I thought I would head to the garage yesterday and see how the bike would start after sitting, not on a charger, in a cold garage for over two months. Temps here in RI have been as low as 8 F and some days have prob reached 45F.. but the average has prob been in the 30's. Yesterday it was 30 and snowing.. sorry about the goofy phone video and piss poor commentating

Did my Shorai at 20 degrees stored overnight in a cold trailer and it took about 5 minutes of short bursts and wait - pulse cranking before the battery final woke up. I do not recommend the Shorai for cold weather winter riders that commute daily in cold weather.
I got Shorai batteries in all my bikes but then again I usually don't ride much below 30 degrees.

Started right up first push.. I could try it again later when it is supposed to be in the teens.

I have a Shorai in my New Berg FE 350. We have had some real cold weather (-8) and mine would still start no problem.
