TC Electric start question..

Recommended Posts

Why did Husky choose to remove the E-Start from the TC's the last couple of years??

To lose some weight.

I added one back on. I was told it was a direct result of magazine feedback.I think they were just ahead of the game.The 450MX thumpers will all have them as soon as they can trim the weight.(My opinion)

CowboyBob had the right answer. It was a weight issue compared to Japan MX bikes. Of course you only see KTM represented in off road shootouts on 450 MX bikes these days. I called DR back in early Dec (10th) leaving a message with the editor, that we would provide a new 07 TC or TE 450 for the 24 hour test if they wanted it with a mechanic. No one ever returned the call.

We added ES onto both Baja bikes since the weight isn't an issue in off roading vs. the ease of starting in the middle of no where or in a rocky streambed or the likes. Plus, OUR BD stators were rewinded for ES as well.:applause:
