Husqvarna's Thomas Chareyre and Gerald Delepine on top of Greek GP

18 October 2009 - World Supermoto

Thomas Chareyre made it to his third consecutive GP win and even moved up to third in the S1 Championship, rounding off a solid weekend in Greece. Husqvarna fellow rider Delepine instead took his first season's win in the S2 class.

Lazzarini and Hiemer completed the S1 podium, with the latter being at his GP return after a severe injury. Championship leader VDB (fifth) and Hermunen (sixth) instead missed the podium for their first time this year.

Gozzini took second overall in the S2 but failed on making up ground on series leader Adrien Chareyre, taking third overall with the same amount of points as the Italian.

Massimiliano Porfiri won and snatched the Open class red plate from Monticelli. In the S3 series Karanyotov won the overall despite Janina Wuerterle won heat one.

S1-S2 RACE 1

Starting from first on the grid after winning Superpole in the morning, Thomas Chareyre again took the holeshot to lead the hungry group into the first corner. The Frenchman of Husqvarna CH Racing made sure to escape from a group tangle at the entrance of the sky section starting with the crash of Hiemer, being then hit by Gozzini. The two fell on the ground, blocking the entrance to the sky section to all riders on the inside, including Lazzarini.

That let Adrien Chareyre join his brother Thomas at the lead, with Hermunen and Delepine following as all three went by the outside of the crash. The Husqvarna parade remained in place until Hermunen went down at the turn leading into the start straight. The Finn restarted but another crash took him out of the top ten.

Thomas and Adrien Chareyre took first and second followed by Delepine while SBD Racing's Bussei kept behind a dangerous Lazzarini - the Italian of HM Honda Racing had worked his way up to fifth. Van Den Bosch and Gaspardone followed.

The S1 classification saw Thomas Chareyre take first from Bussei and Lazzarini, while Adrien Chareyre topped the S2 ahead of Delepine and Gaspardone.

S1-S2 RACE 2

Thomas Chareyre of Husqvarna CH Racing took another great start and holeshotted turn one ahead of Lazzarini and Gozzini. This time out everything went well at the entrance to the sky section but later on Gozzini moved past HM Honda Racing's Lazzarini on the start straight, taking second and chasing Chareyre for first.

747 Motorsport TM Factory Racing's Gozzini put pressure on the rock solid French who defended the top spot and eventually finished ahead of Gozzini.

Lazzarini was set on a third place finish but Hiemer's move at two laps to go dropped him down to fourth behind the German of KTM Italia Miglio.

Hermunen settled for fifth after trying to find a way past Lazzarini but left VDB behind in sixth. Delepine instead put together a steady race finishing eighth but securing the S2 overall win.

It was a troubled race for Adrien Chareyre, tangling up with Bartolini and going down at the sky section.

In the separate S1 standings Thomas Chareyre went one-one to take another overall win ahead of Lazzarini, who was third twice. Hiemer made it to the podium courtesy of fifth and second. Bussei was fourth ahead of VDB and Hermunen.

      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
