I think I said this over on CH, but I ride with prescription polarized Oakley's. I have used them for years. This is my first motorcycle with a digital dash, so I didn't know what to expect.

Needless to say, I haven't seen my dash in the daytime yet. Luckily I can see the tach. I imagine one day I will get pulled over, and the conversation will go like this.

Officer: Do you know how fast you were going?
Me: 4400 RPMs
Officer: No, I asked how fast you were going.
Me: Yes, 4400 RPMs

How hard do you think it would be to make a new one? Everything is electronic correct?

A bunch of idiot lights a tach and a speedo. Has anybody checked the specs on the cluster yet?

Would the BMW parts be compatible?

I'm going on a whim here, but I'd say harder than you think. It seems the Husky has all the processing built into the dash. Some dashes are just digital outputs, but this one has processors in it.

It could be done in a different housing, but all the internals would have to remain.

Dash

I wear polarizes shades too. Can't see the display very well at all. If I'm worried about my speed I'll use my GPS speedo instead.

SC Tall seatr

Finally got around to installing my Seat Concepts Tall seat. Everything was intact and packaged well. In the box there is the new foam, cover.and instructions. The cover is tons nicer and stronger than the OEM and the foam seems firmer.



First you have to remove the cover, Way easy, implements of destruction.





The dimensions of the new foam is very close to that of the original foam only a couple of inch's taller. I was a bit surprised the SC wasn't wider.

OEM



SC





I left the new cover and foam out in the sun to heat em up and slapped the new foam and cover on the OEM pan and stretched it stapled it down with my $15 dollar stapler



The entire install too less than an hour.



I took the bike out for a spin and the only positive to report so far is there is more leg room. My sitting posture is now much better. As far as comfort goes its to early to tell. Going to head up to NC tomorrow and will report back on it. Overall the kit quality is good and the installation is easy-peasy. It will defiantly add leg room but not certain its going to be any more comfortable than stock

If your bike weighs more than 400lbs. You might not make it.

7/8 inch Rox Risers

Rox has a 2" 7/8 bar riser. Will it fit with the stock cable length on a Stada?

Seat Concepts main attraction has always been providing that wider section for real dirtbikes with narrow, hard seats... I've had three and they've all been huge improvements on oem seats.

The TR comes with a pretty decent seat, so I wasn't going to replace the oem seat with a SC until the taller option was available - now it is, and I'm gonna git me one

The stock seat is as good a stock seat as I've sat on but the SC is better.
I'm 5'9" with a giraffe-like 30" inseam so I just ordered their regular seat.
I sprayed a little 3M 77 on the underside of the foam to keep it from slipping around on the pan. Then I ground of just a bit of the ledge at the rear, just kind of rounded it off really. Tried it with my camping load and it seems to provide 2 distinct places to sit, should help relieve pressure points. Heading out for a weekend of riding and camping this weekend so I'll find out.

The is my first seat concepts seat and I'm very impressed with the quality.
It almost puts itself on. First one I've done with no wrinkles.

Fit my Terra fine -on one cable (think it is the front brake) I had to reverse the screwed in holder under the dash. All the others fit.

G'day Precis. I am the Terra rider you spoke to at the bike shop just prior to your wife taking the Terra for a testride.
I don't have a problem reading the dash myself, but I can see how the skinny little numbers could be difficult to read for some people. I think every bike I've owned in the past 11 years has had an LCD display, so I've learned long ago not to ride in polarising sunglasses.

Others either here or on cafehusky reported needing to reroute the clutch cable to install the Rox 2" risers, but like you I only turned the brake clip upside down which conveniently raises that line exactly 2". Perhaps there was a different cable routing between different batches of TR650s ? The 2" handlebar riser is some of the best money I've spent on my Terra.

The TR650 dash unit is an integral part of the immobiliser system, which comprises the key, the ECU and other components to read the RFID in the key and authorise the bike to run. I suspect that removing any of these from the loop will render the bike immobile. This is just from what I have read and heard, but I think any Husky/BMW mechanic will confirm this.

What I did was turned the throttle tube upside down...I guess you could say I "rotated" the tube 180* works great.

Uhmmm.....I'm throwing a flag on the field for this one.

I don't think my Terra has a Smart-key, like my Beemer. I could be mistaken, but I don't think there is an immobilizing RFID thingy-ma-jiggler.

Looks like a plain 'ol simple key to me.

But what do I know....
