bar risers and tall seats

Recommended Posts

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.

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:

      Long story short I bought this 2011 WR300. The thing is mint, looks brand spanking new. The thing ran like a top, but only had one problem, a low idle. I was to lazy to fix it and just dealt with the fact that I always needed to keep a little bit on the throttle. My third ride on it, I took it to the florence dunes and the top end burnt up. I have just finished fixing it and all I need to do is break it in. I need to adjust the idle first though, and don't know if I'll have the idle too high until it starts. I don't want to hurt the motor on a fresh rebuild and want some opinions on what to do. Do you think it will be fine? How many turns out should I set the carb just to be safe?
      Any response helps
      -Dean

      Just bought a used 2017 Husqvarna FC450. It's my 1st EFI bike so I'm hoping someone can help me out with this issue.
      After starting the bike cold and idling for about a minute or two, it blows a puff of blue smoke from the exhaust pipe if I roll the throttle. It also does this if I stop to talk to a riding buddy on a trail or on the side of the track, let it idle, and then start out on track again. After revving it once the blue smoke is gone but riding buds have told me they smell and occasionally see a puff of blue smoke when following me - not a constant stream just a puff and then it's gone for a while. I'm talking to myself over trying to locate the cause of this as a leak-down test shows no issue. 
      Bike history
      Bought used with 70 hours on it. 
      Original owner had an FMF header and tailpipe on it which he kept. He sold it to me with the stock pipe. He never had it remapped for the FMF pipe
      Started it's life in Atlanta GA 
      Now mostly ridden at sea level
      He told me he used mineral-based 10w-40 Yamalube oil. The manual calls for 10w-50 Ester-based synthetic - which the bike is now running. 
      This is what I've tried so far:
      Leak-down test produced only a 3-5% loss.
      No bubbles in the coolant with the cap off
      No air leak at the exhaust pipe
      No leak at intake
      Barely, barely noticeable hiss when I remove the oil fill cap - but again not enough to lose any more than 5% pressure during the leak-down test.
      Wouldn't matter but checked the valve clearances while the valve cover was off. They were in spec.
      No loss of power
      No milky engine oil from a coolant leak
      No loss of engine oil as seen at the engine oil level window - never needed to add oil between changes
      Talked to someone who builds motors for a living and he said "all KTM/Husqvarna's do it especially when cold because the EFI delivers more fuel on startup as opposed to running at operating temperature". I guess I can see that but why does the bike blow blue smoke at operating temperature then if I pull off the trail or track for 1 minute to ask one of my riding buds something? I'm not letting it idle for minutes at a time. 1-2 minutes tops. Is this just normal for KTM/Husqvarna/4-stoke racing bikes?? Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Former bikes where 2-strokes (CR250, RM125) and a 1993 DR350 which I could've let idle for 20 minutes an not seen blue smoke - but that was a carbed bike. I've always known if a 4-stroke is smoking blue it's burning oil and you shouldn't keep riding it. So I'm a bit concerned about whipping it around the track or taking it out a few miles on trails.

      As the title suggests, I've been debating the idea of throwing in a high compression piston. It will bump the compression in my 2014 KTM 350 XC-F from 13.5:1 to 14:1. First and foremost my main question is, because I live under 1000 ft and usually run 97 octane REC gas, will I have to change the fuel I run or not? Also, will I have to change out the cams to aftermarket and re-time the whole motor and ignition? I guess I really don't know what to expect so any advice will definitely help! Attached below is a photo of the bike I plan on putting it in.
