Under mount steering dampner....

Recommended Posts

I have been searching for some time for a good undermount steering dampner mounting bracket for the Huskys, but to no avail. I had the BRP over mount but I wanted something cleaner like their SUBmount and that raised the bars a bit higher.

But I just founds these guys. They do make one for the newer Huskys. I had a good conversation with one of the owners and she will be getting back with me to let me know if their mount is offset, And how much forward or back from center. But the pieces look very nice on their web site and the price is very fair.

I will let everyone know the details when I get them but assuming that everything is a go, I will be getting two for the TE450 and CR125 and then just share a Scotts dampner between the two bikes.

But if your interested give them a call. I don't think they have had other request for their mount for the Huskys but I think they haven't gotten the right exposure.

Big bob,

Just doing my job 8-)

Just spoke with Robin at Pro-Tect the dampner mount is 6.7mm froward of center or 1.7mm forward of stock flipped to the forward setting. I figure that will be about right.

So I will be ordering two for my Huskys.

They can also anodise them for about $10 more.

So last week I ordered two under mount clamps for the TE450 and CR125,

http://www.ptenduro.com/under.htm

They should be here in a couple weeks. They are able to Hard anodize which I am also considering for duribility. But the machined silver will match the stock triple clamp nicely.

This will be great on the TE450 but really needed on the CR125 as it is pretty flighty.

Now I'm trying to figure which bar to use, as I want it higher but is 1 inch too much? The CR-Mid or KTM bend (same) might be good as it is 13mm lower then CR-High so I would be a net of 10-12mm higher with a few less MM of pull back.

Robin called to let me know that my mounts will likely be shipped off Monday!

And that she was following up on my request for hard anodizing which they can also do, in both natural color (slightly darker silver/bronze) and black. But it would take a couple extra weeks. And being the "right now" kind of guys I will take them as is.

Robin shipped me a under mount for my Scotts...a local welder in Baja cut and welded the standard tower to the frame and we bolted the thing together and raced with it------FREAKIN AWESOME SET UP.

I only have good things to say about my expereince with ptenduro.com -- excellent service, excellent product, fair price.

If you like to ride standing up, need a stabilizer or just some fat bars--this is the way to go :)

the bike is awesome. it WANTS to be raced. everything works better. the suspension comes into its own. the steel frame starts to flow, the brakes are smooth, and the narrow and nimble machine gets happy.

it was weird hitting the woops with the stabilizer--i just started going faster and faster doubling and tripling the giant truck woops. i'd seen guys race like that--but never been able to get to that point. it was faster to just sail over the woops than look for the mellow lines around them...

the other thing that hit me was that i wasnt exhausted after my 85 miles second section...

for the open countryside move the forks down to the first line, add the stabilizer, 16 tooth sprocket...and she is ready to run.

we had one flat and smooth section that went on for about 10 minutes...kept it pinned in 6th for 4-5 minutes at a time...valves are fine. try that on a CRFX!

cant say enough about the 510. raced Baja last weekend--and its off to Glen Helen for a Grand Prix this weekend...its a bike that can do it all.

I just got my two undermount bar mounts from Pro-Tect. It took a bit longer then expected because of a little delay in the USPS (not Pro-Tects fault) but it was worth the wait. The pieces look great and I hope to fit them up this weekend!

3 weeks and 2 races with the under bar mount from ptenduro.com and i am very happy with it.

i had to cut a standard tower from BRP for the Scotts stabilizer and weld it to the frame-just clearing the gas cap and tank. I re-routed the radiator 'equalizer' hose 1" longer and in front of the tower as it loops over the frame.

Everything is working great.

I am a bit nervous about how all this will fit with the Clark and or IMS tanks when they come out.

Hopefullly IMS or Clark will make a tank that can handle radiator guards and a stabilizer...

ANyway :):) for the under the bars mount. Great product, great price.

a little follow up.

I had mounted my Pro Tect underbar dampener mount to my 04 CR125 a month or so ago (have yet to ride it) and just mounted the other mount to my 05 TE450. Both look great and I like that they raised the bars about 1 inch. But because of lack of time I have ridden either yet or fitted a Scotts dampener to it yet.

Robbin of Pro Tect had contacted me recently concerned about the dampener holes not lining up right. So I checked for her and it seems the alignment was off. I really wasn't worried and figured we would figure out how to fix it. But they were totally proactive and sent me a new design they seems to align correctly, and I think as a bonus, they sit about 7 or 8mm more forward. I will let everyone know how it goes when I dial in the dampener and get a sense of the new riding position.

But I wanted to give another plug to Pro Tect as they are great to work with!

      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

      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.
