Interesting idea, but of limited use I think. Certainly wouldn't fit on my bars.

I have the HDB top clamp, with two RAM balls (one for GPS mount, one for SPOT mount). I also wonder if it'll clear a top-mounted Scotts damper for those that have them.

no worries drew. but what was the drama with filling the container up? because it wasn't approved for fuel use, or is it illegal to carry fuel on a bike?! and how do you dredge a cow exactly?

Gidday B1 the dredge back packs have a tube that comes out of the screw cap with a pump gun at the other end when the cows are in the yard you just give them a squirt the there mouth.
Me and my mate,s have been useing these packs for 20 years we just replace the screw cap or plug the hole so fuel want spill out.
Then we would were them over the top of the body armour our put it in your back pack.
The problem know is petrol stations want let you fill a container unless it has an approved sticker on it.

Just got this baby a couple of weeks ago. Sadly due to poor weather, tons of work, and a vacation, I have not been able to ride it anywhere but back in forth in my neighborhood. Pretty excited with what I have experienced so far!

The pipe is off getting ceramic coated now. Fastway pegs, HDB steering damper mount, risers, and ADVx top clamp are on the way. Going to keep the Scott's damper and Cycra hand guards off of my dirtbike. Got the in tank fuel sock filter from Australia and Can-Am filter ready to go in to tomorrow. Still looking at pipe guard and radiator guards.

Anyhow, the main reason I am posting is that I hope to take this bike on the TAT trail next summer and I am worried about fuel capacity. I will get a 70* tank if they ever come out but that is still pretty short mileage. I was thinking of attempting to make or getting someone to make a skid plate box like LukasM's but built around a 4L MSR dromedary bag. What do y'all think?

G'day RTF,

I'm 1 step ahead of you on this journey (not for long I'm sure) -- I have a tip on the ADVdx top clamp -- get the computer protector too. I just installed my ADVdx last night and unfortunately I had gotten the wrong protector (mine's a 4 lamp not a 2 lamp -- my bad for pre-ordering, I just said "make mine like LukasMs and got it wrong lol).

If you don't, it's not a biggie except you cannot directly see the speedo/hours and more importantly the low fuel light/engine management warning lights, as (with risers especially) the computer ends up being a fair bitbelow the clamp... also "apparently" (going on what I read not what I've experienced here), the auxillary fan is a good to have item but is also a pain in the arse to mount depending on which rad guards if any you use. I solved that by having mine put on before I got it.

Grats on a totally rockin bike!!

I believe that tank is for the older non 70 degree bikes. At least his photos show that. Being a tall guy at 6'6" I don't like the idea of really big front tanks as they would seem to get in the way of my long legs when sitting.

The top clamp came in yesterday while I was at work. I am impressed with the workmanship!

I wanted the computer protector but I am trying to get this bike ready with the basics before the Overland Rally here in Georgia next week. Getting my bike ready and trying to diagnose a sick Tacoma has me running out of funds with a quickness. The protector and a few other things will have to wait until after.

Going to try the bike out in the woods first before I get the fans. We will see.

i still felt cramped on the bike (6" 4) so got a piece of alloy plate so i could push the bars forward an inch which made a big difference. and padded the seat higher and wider.

re: fuel, the tanks all cost a fortune for the berg. cheap arse is 5L jerry can in a dry bag strapped to the rear seat between the side bags, then an extra two to four liters in fuel bottles in the tank bag if needed. about 360km range max.

Congrats and welcome to the party!


Having just ran the Nevada and Oregon TAT on my Husaberg, and having ridden most of the TAT once before, I can say with confidence you need more than 4L (1 Gallon) of extra fuel to make it in between gas stations with a stock FE.
I carried a 6L MSR bag and ran out of gas twice. Luckily I scored gas from loggers once and the other time laying the bike down on it's side gave me enough gas to go the few miles needed. While it was a fun adventure, having integrated extra fuel capacity would have been much much better.

I know it's quite an investment, but I see it as a necessity and am saving up for a Safari front tank AND a 70 tank to complete my FE into a bike I can travel on without carrying fuel externally, the only thing I find to take away from the fun of traveling long distances on the Husa.
The Safari should be the first purchase, then I can carry a 4L bag if needed until I can get a 70 tank too. Being a cheap bastard, I'm hoping when the new 70 tank comes out I can score a used or left over v.1 tank for much less.
From what I've read it's not too uncomfortable while riding to have that tank up there.

Now if you do get to having a bash plate with liquid storage capability made, would love to know if I can get in on one, not for gas but for oil or water.

Awesome, does that mean you'll be manufacturing a bash plate for us to purchase?


I'm very interested in seeing what you have going on with your oil cooler, as increasing my oil capacity along with fuel are the last pieces to the puzzle for this bike to make it the perfect long range lightweight ADV bike.



Speaking of oil, on my last 2600 mile Mad Dash due to circumstances out of my control I didn't/wasn't able to change the oil.
Good news is I sent the oil in for analysis and should have the results tomorrow. We shall see how the Husa's oil did after the long ride, especially since the last 850 miles were done at high speed highway riding in one sitting.
