bar risers and tall seats

I don't own a Husky yet but may one day. The TE ergos are pretty tall and spacious compared with some bikes. I have sat on a TE-450 at the dealers show room. I guess it was an 04. It had that 100 year graphics on it. The bars looked flimsy factory oem as I remember. So I would replace the bars with a bend I like. I assume I can find a universal adapter mount to fit some 1/1/8 protapers on and not have to buy a new triple clamp. But my qusetion is are there aftermarket bar risers available for the Husky TE bikes?

and while were on the Tall subject - what about replacement Tall seats?

OR am I so new to this forum, that huskys don't do bar risers and tall seats? if so that ok, but I am 6'5" and I will want to adjust or modify the bike somehow to get more room in the cockpit, get the bars out of my lap and taller up and further out cause I ain't no 185 lb 5'11 average size guy that they make these bikes for.

I'm just the opposite of you...being 5-8 but I know they make tall seats because a buddy of mine got one for his 510. He also put on after-market bars but I don't know which brand or whats mods he needed to accomodate them...

I know they make bar clamps for the pro tapers,I've talked to a couple dealers that said they could order them call Summit cycles in Grandview MO. 1-816-525-7223,or Halls in Illinois 217-789-0107 or Uptite Husqvarna in Santa Ana CA 714 540 2920 if anybody would know George at Uptite would! I weigh 230 ,and 6'1" tall,and my son is 6' 4",and weighs 280,we ride '01,and '02 570's,the stock bars are tougher than they look he goes down pretty hard sometimes,and hasn't bent em yet,but he did bend the bars on the 360.The 570's we ride have a taller feeling seat than the newer models(my opinion),and really don't need any taller. Ask them about taller seats for the '04,and '05 4 strokes!They might be able to help you!

Those bars are NOT flimsy. The aluminum tubing is thicker than any aluminum bar on the market. In fact, if you want to mount handguards, you'll need to drill the end of the bars or the aluminum fasteners won't even slid inside. Replace them for comfort or style, but not for strength.


ok thanks....guess that bar question is its own question and you've answered it for me............still I will want more room and moving the bars or replacing them with an adapter and a higher sweep bar would be my aim to get the room.

now I know the stock bars are strong.


I went with the fast by ferracci bar clamp and pro tapers,the clamp can be turned around in the forward position to open up the cockpit. Im 6'5 and weigh 205lbs I havent got a seat kit yet but was thinking about it.I changed the rear spring 5.8 I think.

hey BigBob,

The factory bars are pretty sturdy but I converted to Fat Bars so I could get open up cockpit (6'2" 200lbs). I went with Pastrana Freestyle bars (extra tall) and TAG CR/KX Fat bar Adapters (part# 4098). When you install the TAG adapters, the post will press out the metal sleeve in the stock rubber bushings. The TAG mounts are offset so you can move the bars +/- 10mm (might be 5mm) so it totally opened the feel of the bike.

GUTS Racing makes standard or tall, soft or firm seat foam and covers for the Husky's. I think you can order the cover from them but if you want a tall seat, you have to UPS the seat to them. Right now I am running a Factory Effex B3 Ballistic seat which is killer but it would be a little nicer if it was taller/softer. I sent them a seat for my VOR 530 Enduro on a Monday and it was back on my doorstep on Friday. Very cool bunch if guys.

later, Rick

thanks rick, just what I needed to know that there are options to open up the bars and raise the seat...all good news.

I rode a CRF-250X today with some height adapters and aftermarket bars that gave me good room. the bars felt good relative to the bike and seating/standing positions for me on that bike, but the over all the back half tailend of the bike is just too small framed for me...and power is good but not right for me and even mild hill climbing.. I decided today the 250 4 strokes are too small for a big guy like me. That means yes the 450 and 510, 525 size bikes are very much my market.

looking forwad to test riding a husky one day as I know a couple owners.

I'm 6'3" and well fed at 235lbs and the BRP top clamp and Guts tall seat did the trick for me. I also changed to the Windham high Pro Taper and have all the room I need. I have seen others who also cut the footpeg spacer off the top and reweld it on the bottom but I didnt need that, so the room is there if you need it :cry:

      Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Rider Starts his Quest to Defend Cross-Country Rallies World Championship
      March 15, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Pablo Quintanilla will re-start his 2018 international rally racing campaign on March 24 to 29 at the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge in the United Arab Emirates. Working hard towards returning to full competitive fitness following a foot injury sustained during the closing stages of the Dakar Rally, Pablo’s teammate Andrew Short is expected to join the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing squad at the 2018 Merzouga Rally in mid-April.

      With the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge playing host to the opening round of the 2018 FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship, the event in the UAE will see Pablo Quintanilla begin the defence of his FIM Cross-Country World Championship title. Securing eighth overall at the 2018 Dakar Rally in January, the Chilean rally star is already looking forward to a solid return to racing aboard his FR 450 Rally machine.
      Successfully wrapping up his debut participation at the prestigious Dakar Rally with a top 20 result, Andrew Short has been recuperating from a fractured tibia and fibula on his lower right leg. Resuming his training sessions in the middle of March, the American has his eyes set on making a return to racing at the Merzouga Rally on April 15/20, in the dunes of Morocco.
      Celebrating its 28th edition in 2018, the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge is a six-stage-long rally taking place in the southern part of the United Arab Emirates. Kicking off with the traditional Super Special Stage on Saturday, March 24, the event will continue with five more days of racing in the Liwa Desert before competitors reach the finish line inside the Yas Marina circuit on March 29, 2018.

      Pablo Quintanilla: “Abu Dhabi will be our first race after the Dakar and I’m really looking forward to it. It’d be good to start the season carrying the #1 plate on my Husqvarna as the reigning champion. With it being the first race for the new season, it is important for everybody. My goal is to get a good race pace from the beginning in order to be inside the group of leading riders. The season will be long and my plan is to continue improving my pace as the racing goes on. I want to get back my racing speed and also remain strong throughout the event in Abu Dhabi. Taking place in deep sandy dunes, the Desert Challenge is always a tough event and it is also highly probable that we will have to race in high temperatures. It’s going to be a challenge but I’m looking forward to it.”

      Looking for some Wiring Harness, Connections and Installation assistance for installing a Tusk Universal Under the Fender LED Taillight with Brake Light on a Husqvarna 2017 TX300
      The UTFLight comes with a plastic connector that would work with the tusk enduro lighting kit which i'll be removing so that I can plug into the stock harness.
      I've been told the stock harness is the same as what would be included on the TE Model, minus the actual headlight/taillight being present; which is the case for the headlight wiring . it's all there ready to go.  For the taillight/brakelight however there is a bit more to be done.  There are NO wires running to the rear of the bike or within the SubFrame as some have noted
      I'll need to run to existing wires, and could use some guidance for which connectors are needed, if a supplementary harness is required(if so which one) and which wires to connect to on the existing harness.  There is very limited info in the manual (for either bike: TE/TX) or complete color harness diagram with info and connector information anywhere that I could find.
      I also picked up the Tusk Brake Switch Banjo bolt for the Brembo brakes (two wire, bullet connectors) - switch instructions.pdf 
      On the Brake side under the front/bottom of gas tank near radiator there is an existing connector (I think for radiator fan) and from it, two unused wires, I would say for tapping into the existing harness.  1 Solid Brown, 1 Yellow/Red - 
      Shifter side, near the bottom rear of tank I found taped up cylinder style connector (Someone can enlighten me) i think switch wires ? maybe some terminator,  each with the same color wire in as out.  One is Gray/Black and the other White/Black
      Under the cdi box is a three plug connector with two wires, 1 Brown and 1 White, third unused- i was hopeful this could be the tail light connector but am unsure
      Help on harness, connector names /types and setup is very much appreciated

      I'm just putting the finishing touches on my streamlined version of the BOZZA DRAFT shop manual for the 610. I've removed everything but the english language & made it easy to find what you're looking for. I re-wrote the part about the computer with many thanks to Xfool but I'd like a little proof reading here. In particular I'm not real sure about the Service Interval section. If any of you would be willing to double check what I've got here & report back with any errors or omitions I'd be greatful. (I added another section on adding & removing screens) Also I don't know if it's legal to post this for public consumption but I'd be happy to share it with anyone who want's a copy.

      10/17/08 UPDATE! I posted more photos on page 2. Not all pictures are on page 1. I will constantly be adding more photos as I go along.
      Many of you have heard of my starting/idle problems with the 610. Carburetion has been ruled-out time and time again. I sensed something else was going on. The engine has never wanted to idle down, sounded like there was a load on it even in neutral. Since I had metal filings in my oil when I first got it, I have now decided to overhaul it and make everything ship-shape. It turns out that I was correct- there is some valve damage that I will talk about later.
      I don't like to take apart dirty engines and get the dirt inside 'em

      A little gross.

      My cleaning station:

      A little better now

      Clutch removal:

      after removing springs

      bottom of pressure plate

      everything looked decent as far as wear

      after removing plates

      basket after removing hub

      Area after removing basket.

      Removing the starter gear with snap ring pliers

      More to come. I'm uploading pictures of the case splitting, etc...
      I'll try to ease off on the photo-over-obsession. The next batch of info/photos will be a little more interesting.
      Comments and suggestions are appreciated. I'm already ordering parts from George so before I know it, I'll be just waiting on new parts (after a little more cleaning.
