Got a chance to put the Terra in some rougher situations this weekend and am happy to report this bike kicks ass.

Got about 200 miles of paved and dirt road and 6 miles of Hogback Ridge just after a 5 inch snowfall melt,which left the black dirt leaf covered trail slick as grease. The smooth throttle and light balance feel made it easy to control the Terra as the wheels constantly slid sideways over the rough surfaces.

It seemed like there were at least a hundred of these mud holes in this section.I know this is not a pic of the Terra,but its really hard to ride and take your own pic...Had I fallen in this muck,I'm sure there would have been plenty of pics..





BTW,tires are the stock half worn rear Sahara and a Mt-21 front

Moving along to the top of Big Walker Mountain,just above the !-77 Tunnel




And down one side following what used to be a two track and is now a creek bed...




Lots of slippery off camber,rocks,ledges downed trees and overhanging limbs most of the way down.





Overall opinions...This bike is great,exactly what what I wanted for normal road/dirt ,I really did not buy it with the intention of using for this type riding,but its great to know its capable when the need arises...

Nit picking....with me weighing in at 235/40 I think it needs a heavier springs in the front,of course most bikes I buy need the same.Possibly some lower gearing.I had to slip the clutch a bit more than I felt necessary in some of the tighter spots,Like to hear from others that have already done this.

I really hope Husky keeps this bike and continues to improve the little bits.

I look forward to seeing how you like the MT-21's and how they hold up.

When the oem tires are done, I'm going to try my current favorite DOT combo, D606 rear and MT-21 front.

606 is not available in a 140 width....at least not that I've ever seen. MT21 has a 140x18. That's why you are seeing so many Pirelli's spooned on.

Terra acting wierd.

I just picked up my terra last week, I have put 150 miles on it so far... I installed a booster plug at about 60 miles in the same fashion big dog installed his. While riding home from work today, the bike started to sputter, kind of like my old bikes do when they are running out of gas... It still had almost a gallon of gas in it, and had been running fine prior to that... Any ideas.. Could the booster plug have gone bad, or something? Any help would be apprciated...

Thanks

What was the outside temp? Was the bike overheating?

Was it while taking off from a stop?

It was about 80 degrees out... The bike idles fine, take off is good, when you are at normal throttle (let's say quarter throttle) it acts like it is not getting gas, (bogs down) but when you give it throttle and raise the rpm it hesitates for a second then vroom... I attempted to ride to work this morning, 60 degrees out side. Bike was of course cold (had been in garage all night), and as I was leaving the neighborhood it started the same thing... I turned around and parked it and drove the car to work... I am completely puzzled.. I have never had such an issue with any bike before...

Thanks

I'm going to disconnect the booster plug and plug the cable back in the factory air sensor, and see if it goes away... That is the obvious thing to do... I can't think of anything else it could be...

If you just got the bike, I'd wager that it no longer has the issue that the first run of bikes did. That would make the booster plug not really needed and could have ill effect.
Try running it w/o the booster plug, I bet it will run just fine.

I took the booster plug off and the problem has seemed to go away... So note to all, the newer Terra's do not need a booster plug... Thanks for all the quick reply's guys! I'm back to enjoying my Terra....
