I doubt those purdy Husaberg decals last very long on MTBjeff's Safari tank.

I had a Safari on my WR250R Yamaha, and the decals would bubble off within a couple weeks. Gas fumes seeping thru the plastic, it seemed.

Good luck with it. Beautiful graphics job anyway!

Anyone having any luck finding the lower temp radiator fan switches? Last ride the fan only came on when the bike was hot hot! The ATM 1435033 part that everyone recommended from NAPA is no longer available according to them. Can't find it online either. Anybody found one recently?

I'm assuming (yes I know...) that all of those are compatible with the BMW and should have the same thread and temp switch. Looking deeper at the descriptions I would not assume that the temp switch is the same across the board.

What temp range are you looking for? (A switch that trips at 203F and turns off at 193F)

I don't know how to give you a definite answer - sorry.

You could try directly ordering from them: http://www.altrom.com/cgi-bin/altapp...0:::0:&CD=9676

I did however go the Beck/Arnley web site. At the top of the page there is a option to view their Catalog. At the top of the catalog there is a option to search/cross reference parts. Cross referencing the 1435033 yields a Beck/Arnley 201-1310.

Amazon is now your friend: http://www.amazon.com/Beck-Arnley-20...words=201-1310

Hope this helps - pinevalley

Got mine in today.



It is a 95/90c versus the 100/95c that came with the kit. Thanks again Pinevalley!


Heading to the RMAR event in Silverton, CO at the end of July and had a question about tire choice. I have a 60-70% dunlop 606 on the rear but thinking about getting a pirelli mt43 dot trials tire before I head out there. Never been riding out there. What do you all think? I think I can do fine with the 606 but would like to try the mt43 and have heard it does really well in the mtns. Some of that single track looks nasty so I would really like the best tire.

I switched from a 606, my "wet" tire,, for winter/spring to a MT43 a couple of weeks ago.. it promptly started raining constantly.. had a great ride today.. very wet and muddy and the MT43 did great. On dry rock it will kick the 606's butt every time.. I don't see any downside to the MT43 at all.

just spent the last hour watching the CBDR video a friend gave me today.. thinking about a Sept attempt.. Not sure how my months are going to play out as I move to CO in late July.. August is already gone with family time in CA and fishing time in MT.. Maybe we will get a late winter start and I can squeeze it in in late Sept/early Oct.

I have never had any... but I am running a 13/50 drive train and the chain adjustment is pretty much all the way back.. there have been several discussions on the forums that say the mt43 requires a 50 rear not to rub.. my simple brain doesnt quite understand why that would be..but it has worked for me

I too switched to a MT43 to try. I don't reco a 50T rear with the tire, as you cannot run a 14T front. The swinger does not have enough adjustment range. I ended up running a 15T because I had it already. The 13T obviously works.
I would have bought a 49 or a 51 next time.

So far, I do like the MT43, but don't have enough time on it yet. 2 rides, 350 miles.

I'm running tubliss as well (new to me), so lot's has changed.
