Hhhmmm....that good, eh? Sounds like I'm headed for a MOSS adjustment, as well, then. The only issue I have is occassional rough/low idle and stalling after a hard charge/throttle chop. Glad to hear this is a permanent fix.

Ps. PCV module wouldn't hurt none either. Wonder what the status is on that over at DJ's?

I don't know how far away your dealer is, but it's worth doing for sure. Mine is about 1 1/2 hrs away. I just rode there on the bike and took the long way home. Good excuse to get out.

So I have about 800 miles on my Terra and have done some accessories. Killer bike, I love it. I do have one small, maybe stupid question, thus I thought I may ask it here. I need to adjust my chain tension, but I do not have a skid plate on yet to jack the bike up....

What are you guys doing to adjust chain tension? I am correct in assuming that the rear wheel needs to be of the ground to adjust? Stupid questions abound! Help me out fellas.

Chain adjustment

Others will chime in...but adjusting the chain is fine done on the side stand. If you tighten too much and need to go backwards I use a rubber mallet and whack the rear tire to move it back(forward) ...of course this is after you loosen all your 2 jam-nuts. And the axle.I hope this makes sense to you. I bet utube has tons of videos of similar bikes..you'll be fine.

yeah the manual and youtube will work as far the actual adjusting go, was just fuzzy as to if the bike needed to be in the air or not. thanks for the response.

New stupid question

Ran a bit in the dark the other day: does anyone else see the Husky logo in the headlight spill pattern, caused by the tab on the fender tip?

Or am I just getting foggy?----

I put the Touratech headlight guard on and it changes the light pattern a bit, does not block any light, but casts some cool shadows. Full Brights is still super bright. I also plan on putting on some additional lights like bigdog or something. I wanna be able to run trails at night in case I might ever have a mechanical and have to ride at night.

Development is complete and they go into production shortly. They said somewhere around 6 - 8 weeks until they will be available for sale.

It was mentioned on another forum that those who are seriously interested in a PCV for their Terra should get a groupbuy going.!

Rotopax- easy mounting

My Rotopax 1gal with mount came in this morning. After some head scratching, I came up with the following:

The tan bag is my tool kit, everything I need plus spares tubes for the front and back, and a bottle of slime.

I utilized the rear hole on the rack which holds a 5/16" bolt in place perfectly, and drilled out a hole further up to mount the other 5/16" bolt.





Seems pretty stout. We'll see how that plastic rack holds up to the 1lb container (7-8 lbs w/ fuel).
Hopefully it'll last longer than the flimsy plastic tail that I cut off.

I think you're headed for trouble there, RE. I don't think this little plastic tailback is that strong. Especially with the weight being cantilevered so far out the back, like that.

You better add some support from your super-tail section. IMO

I have the same feeling too. But when it snaps I'll have a reason to fab up my own rack.
Next weekend Bullitman281 and I are going to attempt to ride the US/MX border road from El Paso, TX, to San Diego, CA.
If its going to snap, it will definitely be on that trip

any word on longer seat?

the wife and i took the tr650 for a test ride the other day, we both liked
that said the seat is to short both for my 34" inseam and the wifes rear side

so it needs to be a bit taller and longer.

all around looks like a good bike
