    GP of Leon Results

    April 2, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – American MX2 star Thomas Covington has claimed an impressive overall MX2 class win at the GP of Leon, collecting a fourth place result and a race win at the rough Mexican track. In what was a great GP for Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing, Gautier Paulin earned a podium result getting third overall in MXGP class. Confident of strong results at a track where the American had earned his first GP victory in 2015, Covington didn’t fail to deliver in Leon. The weekend started with Thomas getting a convincing qualifying race win to place himself on pole position for MX2’s final motos. Getting a good jump out of the gate in the opening moto, Covington found himself in sixth at the end of the first lap. Making some crucial passes he crossed the line fourth. With his FC 250 machine powering him to the holeshot in moto two, Thomas made a smart and well-calculated race. Following Pauls Jonass for the first six laps, he made a successful move for the lead on lap seven and never looked back. Earning 43 points from the GP of Leon Covington climbed to eighth in the provisional MX2 championship standings. Making the most out of a challenging GP, Covington’s Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing MX2 teammate Thomas Kjer-Olsen wrapped up round four of the series with a seventh place overall result. Starting both motos outside the top 10 the FC 250 mounted rider had to push hard to collect two seventh place results in Leon. Earning valuable points Kjer-Olsen remains fifth in the MX2 championship standings. Following tough times during the last few rounds Conrad Mewse sat out of the Mexican GP. The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing MX2 rider will return to action at the following round of the series in Italy. In the MXGP category, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Gautier Paulin enjoyed a solid weekend of racing in Mexico. The Frenchman kicked off a highly positive round four with a strong runner-up result in the qualifying race. Capitalising on a great start in the opening MXGP moto Gautier found himself fighting for the runner-up spot, before eventually settling for a strong third place result. Getting an even better start in moto two Paulin put himself in third at the end of the opening lap. Successfully defending his place until the end of the race, he wrapped up the GP with one more third place result to get on the MXGP podium for the first time this season. Earning important championship points Paulin moved to fifth in the class’ points standings. The GP of Leon saw Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Max Nagl battle through a challenging race weekend to claim eighth overall in MXGP class. Showing good speed in both motos the German collected 7/8 moto results and is currently placed ninth in the MXGP provisional standings. For Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Max Anstie the GP of Leon was an event of mixed fortunes. Earning third in the MXGP qualifying race the Brit was confident of positive results in the final motos. Making a small mistake after the start of the opening moto Anstie pushed hard to finish the race in ninth. Getting a better start in moto two the Brit suffered a crash that forced him to settle for 13th. The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team will return to action at round five of the 2017 FIM Motocross World Championship in Italy on April 15/16. Thomas Covington: “It was one of the best GPs of my career. I felt good throughout the weekend and that helped me stay focused and do my own races. Following our qualifying race win we had a great gate pick for the final motos. I didn’t get the best of starts in moto one but got my head down and managed to get fourth. My start was a lot better in moto two. I got the holeshot and soon found myself in second behind Jonass. I spotted some good lines and was able to make my move for the lead a few laps later. Winning the second moto and getting the overall victory is a great confidence booster. We had a rough start to this championship but things are a lot better now. I’m looking forward to the races to come.” Thomas Kjer-Olsen: “It was a difficult weekend but we did our best to collect points for the championship. We struggled a bit with the track and the high altitude but worked hard and made progress during the weekend. My starts were not good so I had to push hard in both motos. In the first race I went as high as sixth but made a small mistake before the end and had to settle for seventh. Then again in moto two I was outside the top ten at the end of lap one. I made some passes and got seventh again for seventh overall at the GP. Despite tough conditions we collected valuable points and remain fifth in the MX2 championship standings. We’re heading to Europe now and we will keep fighting to go even higher in the standings.” Gautier Paulin: “Everything is coming together for us and it feels really rewarding to get on the podium. We’ve made big improvements with the bike and I’ve also managed to improve my starts. We were strong throughout the weekend in Mexico. From the time practice to the qualifying heat and the final motos we were always inside the top three. In moto one I made a good start and managed to cross the line in third. My start was even better in moto two. Despite feeling a bit tired I managed to get a good race pace to end up third again. I can’t thank all my team enough for all their hard work. I’m having fun on my bike at the moment and our goal now is to consistently battle for the podium at each GP.” Max Nagl: “It was a tough GP for us and I’m glad we managed to salvage some good points. I feel that all the travelling we’ve done this season has affected my body and I felt tired throughout the weekend. Despite a not so great gate pick I got two good starts. In moto one I was running in fourth before eventually dropping to seventh. Then in moto two I was again running close to the top but had to settle for eighth. The work continues for us and I can’t wait to get back to Europe for the next GPs. I’m looking forward to returning to our normal training and racing schedule. I know the speed is there so it’s up to me now to show we can battle for the top.” Max Anstie: “Overall, I’m satisfied with my performance. I rode strong and showed the speed is there. The weekend started quite well with a top three in the qualifying heat. In moto one I was a bit too eager to get a good start so made a small mistake after the gate dropped. I made some good passes during the moto to end up inside the top ten in ninth. Then in moto two I was running in sixth but made a mistake and crashed. My bike works very well and I’m confident we’re moving towards the right direction. It was great Gautier got on the podium and I’m hoping we’ll have more than one Husqvarna machines on the box in the following GPs.” Results – FIM Motocross World Championship, Round 4 MXGP – Overall 1.

  2. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Colton Haaker put the finishing touches to a near faultless 2017 SuperEnduro campaign at the final round in Albi, France to wrap up a second straight FIM title.
  3. Battling his way through a challenging weekend of racing at the sandy track of Lommel, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Gautier Paulin has wrapped up round 14 of the 2017 FIM Motocross World Championship claiming fifth overall in the MXGP class. Delivering a solid performance in Belgium, Thomas Kjer-Olsen placed fifth overall in the MX2 category.
  4. http://racerxonline.com/2018/06/06/phil-nicoletti-to-fill-in-at-rockstar-energy-husqvarna When Jason Anderson went down after a practice crash last week at Glen Helen, he joined his Rockstar Energy Husqvarna 450 teammate Dean Wilson on the sidelines. With both 450 riders out, Rockstar Husky team manager Bobby Hewitt told us the team would have to get a replacement. Hewitt mentioned quite a few wild cards to us—such as factory Husqvarna riders from the GPs during a few off weekends, or former team riders. The final answer is surprising—it's Phil Nicoletti, who, up until now, was racing for Autotrader/Yoshimura Suzuki. Phil, though, was only a fill-in for the team, and fill-in roles in Lucas Oil Pro Motocross have become a specialty for the New Yorker. He was apparently able to get out of his JGR deal and is now part of the Husqvarna squad for the remainder of the summer. Nicoletti is currently seventh in 450 Class points. “I am happy to have the opportunity to finish out the Pro Motocross season with the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team," Phil said in a Rockstar Energy Husqvarna PR. "I look forward to getting on the bike and showing everyone what I have. Thank you to everyone backing me—see you at the High Point National!” No word on JGR Suzuki's next move. Nicoletti was filling in for Justin Bogle, who is back on the bike and testing, but we're not yet sure when he will return to the racetrack. Suzuki has its other 450 slot covered with the steady Weston Peick. “It has been a devastating week for all of us here on the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team," Hewitt said. "Losing Zach [Osborne] for the remainder of the season is unfortunate, but he will be back just as strong as ever. We are excited to have Phil for the rest of the Pro Motocross races and know he will mesh well with the team.”
  5. Okay, so I've been researching and craigslist/eBay surfing for about 3 weeks straight, and I've settled on these three. Now for some details: Husky - 2008 TE510 (Street Legal) $3550 asking price Approximately 120 hours; forks have been overhauled to fix persistent seal leaks; replaced faulty stock odometer; claims that there are no EFI or electrical problems The guy said he checked the valves 500 miles ago and they were perfect. Recent oil change, has the Arrow exhaust. This bike comes with both a supermoto wheel/tire/rotor set and a dirt set, in addition to extra plastics, extra shifter, oil filter, lights/blinkers, extra 3 gal tank, extra sprockets, extra batteries, stand and loading ramp, etc. --- tons of extras. This is also the only bike I will be able to see physically as it's the only one even remotely close to me. I have heard these bikes have bad rod bearings and it's just a matter of time until they let go. I've also heard of all the electrical gremlins and EFI problems. Yamaha - 2006 WR450F (Not Street Legal) ~$3750 with shipping This bike belongs to a member on advrider who would be willing to ship. This one has 0 hours on a fresh top end rebuilt by "race engine tech" plus new valve springs. Rebuilt and cleaned carb with JD jet kit, revalved forks and shock, new brake pads, several other farkles. This one is not currently street legal, so I would have to go through the process to set it up for D/S. Pretty much the only downside to this one as far as I can tell. KTM - 2005 450EXC (Street Legal) ~$3750 with shipping This one is being sold on eBay by a guy who owns a small motorcycle repair/renovation shop. Verified VIN, have spoken with him on the phone -- seems to be legit. This one has been completely gone over by his shop. Adjusted valves, rebuilt forks (stock specs), greased bearings, new brake pads, 'ultrasonically cleaned' carburetor, custom skid plate, custom LED headlight and mount. A few other things but you get the gist. The engine is stock as far as I can tell. The guy made a video of the bike running and riding around. The engine sounds great, no weird noises or anything. Definitely seems to be as advertised. SO... What would you guys do here? I like the idea of the tappet valve adjustments on the KTM. I like the fuel injection on the Husky. I like the completely new top end on the Yamaha. They all sort of speak to me in one way or another. I'm afraid of the longevity of the Husky, and parts availability, but I'm tempted to go that way just because I will be able to test ride it first, something I won't be able to do for either the KTM or the Yamaha. I plan to do mostly trail riding, but the only trails near me are about 20 miles of pavement away. I like the idea of not having to trailer the bike, but I am not looking for a bike that will amaze me with its road capabilities. I also am planning to do a week long, 500-750 mile trail ride sometime this summer. I'd like to do more adventurous rides like this from time to time, but most of the time I will be just taking day trips to nearby trails. What do you guys think? PS Sorry this got incredibly long, but I've really been wracking my brain on this one. Thanks in advance for any help! EDIT: Oops, forgot there is also a 2012 KTM 450XC-W with rekluse/rad guards/steering dampener/radiator fan and only 30 hours on a top end rebuild only about an hour away from me. He's asking $4200 which is a bit out of my budget, but it may be worth it to stretch for such a newer bike? I would also have to convert it to street legal, though, so it seems like this one would end up being way more expensive overall.
  6. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Colton Haaker Clains Victory at the 2017 King of the Motos 7 02 2017 February 7, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Offroad team headed to Johnson Valley, California this past weekend for the kick-off event for the 2017 King Of The Hammers, King Of The Motos race. Colton Haaker pushes through a flawless race to finish the 2017 King Of The Motos in 1st place! Photo: Tanner Yeager Colton Haaker was ready to take on one of the toughest offroad moto races in the country aboard his Husqvarna TX 300. The race consisted of 3 races where scores were combined for the overall outcome. The 3-race format started Saturday night. This was a 10 km long loop with a land rush start. Haaker rushed off the start and worked his way up the infamous Chocolate Thunder, cresting the mountain trail in 2nd. The dark grew troublesome with the dust, making navigation to hit virtual checkpoints difficult. Colton rode smart in order to hit these checkpoints and not loose time due to penalties. He finished race #1 in 4th place. Racing continued to Sunday with race #2 starting at 9am. This loop was around 35.5 km and consisted of one of the hardest hill climbs of the race. Colton Haaker got a bad jump off of the line but rode fast to catch the leading pack. Colton came into 3rd place when he came up on a downed competitor who was unconscious. The rest of the racing pack had caught up to Colton, and stopped as well. This closed the pack together and shortened Haaker’s lead. As the race continued, he rode fast and hit every checkpoint. He physically finished 3rd, but was given 1-minute of time back for stopping and helping to aid the recovery of a fellow competitor. After corrected time, he finished in 2nd. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Colton Haaker triumphs at one of the United States most difficult offroad moto races. Photo: Tanner Yeager The third and final race took place Sunday afternoon and consisted of a 19.5 km loop. The land rush start was extremely sandy and rocky. Colton Haaker crested the hill in about 5th. The extreme enduro course fit well with Colton’s riding style. He navigated flawlessly and was awarded 1st place after the actual leader was found to have missed a checkpoint. This first place finish resulted in Colton’s overall win of the 2017 King Of The Motos. King Of The Motos Results: 1. Colton Haaker (HSQ) 2. Max Gerston (BET) 3.

  7. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Welcome Andrew Short October 1, 2017 Motor Sports Newswire American Motocross Star set to Switch to Rally Competition Aboard Husqvarna’s FR 450 Rally October 1, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Husqvarna Motorcycles are pleased to announce the signing of Andrew Short, with the American joining the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Rally team with immediate effect. Turning a new page in his illustrious career, the former US SX and MX racer is set to pilot Husqvarna’s FR 450 Rally machine throughout the 2018 and 2019 seasons. One of the most acclaimed riders in the recent history of US competition, Short wrapped up his 16-year-long career as a professional motocross and supercross racer with a total of nine wins and 49 podium results. A force to be reckoned with throughout his career, the Colorado native has finished among the top three in the AMA Pro Motocross championship no fewer than five times. Heavily involved with the off-road motorcycle industry in many ways, Andrew possesses a wealth of experience as an official test and development rider – an activity that the American focused on after announcing his retirement from professional motocross competition at the end of the 2016 season. Since then Short has also been a spokesperson and mentor for the younger generation of motocross racers. Never ceasing his active involvement with off-road riding, Andrew took the decision to switch to rally racing having taken part at this year’s Sonora Rally, round one of the 2017 Dakar Challenge. Enjoying an impressive first outing the highly-experienced racer wrapped up the four-stage-long event by claiming third overall in Mexico. Short is set to make his racing debut aboard the Husqvarna FR 450 Rally machine at the 2017 OiLibya Morocco Rally on October 4 to 10. Looking to gain more experience in navigation and demanding rally stages, he is expected to be a strong asset for the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team for the upcoming Dakar Rally in January. Diego Clement – Head of Motorsport at Husqvarna Motorcycles: “We are really excited to have Andrew join the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Rally team. An accomplished racer with a very long and distinguished career in motocross and supercross racing, Andrew is now highly motivated to succeed in rally racing. Taking advantage of his wealth of experience and knowledge we strongly believe he will further strengthen our rally team. With his speed never in doubt, our goal is to provide him with all the necessary tools so that he can learn and further improve his navigational skills. Andrew will make his debut at this week’s OiLibya Rally in Morocco. It will be a perfect chance for him to gain some racing miles on the FR 450 Rally machine ahead of the Dakar Rally.” Andrew Short – Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing: “I’m really excited to be part of Rockstar Energy Husqvarna. It’s an awesome opportunity to take a new step forward in my career as a racer. Rally racing is something I’ve always been interested in. I love riding and racing and to me it seems like rally is the ultimate adventure you can have on a dirt bike. After retiring as a pro motocross racer at the end of 2016 I started riding my bike in the mountains of Colorado and fell in love with it. I took some navigation training lessons and then had a blast at the Sonora Rally. The biggest challenge for me now is to get some more experience and improve my skills in navigation and that’s exactly what I’ll be focusing on this week in Morocco.” Husqvarna Motorcycles.

  8. hey everyone, I make youtube edits and with Ken Roczen and Anderson having a close season so far in points, i figured i'd make an edit on it! I also post many other edit videos if you want to check them out! Channel : Ken and Jason Edit :
  9. Every once and while I throw together a "Moto Moment" video, usually a short minute or so video from some specific singletrack trail out in the Pacific Northwest. Here's my latest, please like, share, and subscribe if you enjoy it!
  10. So this is a question i have been wondering about for a while. I have seen on youtube many people blow their 125/250s up flying down the highway and let off the gas(coast) and not use the clutch. So my question is, is it harmful to engine brake a 2 stroke while woods riding? Might seem weird but i need an answer. I trail ride and ride some technical stuff on a TTR230. A lot of it's tight and open straight away's into corners and up and down steep hills (So i won't really be getting into higher gears, rpms as say you would like on an mx track). Say i am flying through the woods down a straightaway into a corner, i only use my front and back brakes, no clutch, is that bad for the engine? Also going down a hill, locking up the back wheel, feathering the clutch, is that bad for the engine? The questions i asked above may be stupid but if someone with some experience riding woods on a 2stroke could fill me in, i would definitely appreciate it. thanks TT!

    Following a solid, week-long outing at the 92nd edition of the International Six Days Enduro in Brive, France, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team riders Christophe Charlier and Ryan Sipes spearheaded Husqvarna Motorcycles’ efforts at the prestigious annual event. With Charlier playing a vital role for Team France, helping them become Word Trophy team champions, FE 250 mounted Sipes wrapped up the event by claiming second in the highly-competitive Enduro 1 category.
  12. The rest of the guys were late so I set the camera up to take a shot every 1/2 second and got a few 52 and back after a 24 year break
  13. Electrical Help Please - Unknown Current Drain I know electrical problems can be a can of worms but I’m hoping someone has seen similar issues on husky/ktm before. Troubleshooting tips appreciated. 2016 Husky FC 450 Vortex ECU 0.2 Amp drain found when all stop and off. Findings - Battery voltage at 12.7v when stopped. 14.2v when running. - Amp draw reduces to 0.1 Amp when ECU is unplugged. Why? - Noticed that the fuel pump turned on when I reconnect the battery. Shouldn’t this only happen when I bump the start button? - Removed Fuel Pump Relay, drain stopped while unplugged. Replaced relay with new, drain continues when connected. - Main ground connections at frame look good and tight. - Bike rides fine but battery dies overnight if not disconnected. - Battery replaced, no change. - Other forums mentioned failing fuel relay and rectifier, does that make sense? What/Where is the rectifier? How do I test it?
  14. Me and my buddy's are always arguing about what dirt bike brand is better in different categories. Recently it has been about what company produces the most reliable engine. My personal opinion is KTM. What do y'all think from your own personal experiences.
  15. Hi everyone, new to the forum seeking advice. I want to buy another bike. I've been riding a 2002 KTM 520 EXC and it's been a great bike but looking to upgrade to a newer 500 KTM or a 300 XCW. I ride mostly Northern California single track, double track, and occasionally fire roads. Having a plate is not a priority since I have a plated xr650. I'm 6'3'' and have always ridden big bore bikes, so bike weight hasn't been an issue....But I haven't ridden a 300 yet, and I hear they're awesome. Which model would you buy? Should I look at a Husky? If I buy used, what year range is best? Thanks!
  16. MXGP and MX2 Team Riders Wrap Up Their Pre-Season Racing Activities on a High Note in France February 12, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing riders have concluded their pre-season racing activities in style during the 2017 edition of the Lacapelle Marival International Motocross event in France, collecting three top three moto results. With the hard-packed circuit in the south of France hosting the final international race before the start of the 2017 FIM Motocross World Championship, the event proved to be the ideal warm-up for the 19-round-long season that kicks off on February 25. Enjoying a good day of racing in front of his home fans, Gautier Paulin delivered strong performances in each of the three motos he contested. In his first race on hard-packed terrain the FC 450 mounted Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing rider put in a strong opening moto performance to finish third. Wrapping up the event with seventh in moto two and 10th in the Superfinal, Gautier now looks forward to the start of the MXGP season in two weeks’ time. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Max Nagl landed in Lacapelle Marival with one goal in mind – to make the most of his time on the French track and to test different bike settings in real racing conditions. Wrapping up the event with 9/15/11 results the German rider ended the day satisfied with his progress and speed. Working hard to improve some minor details, Max Anstie’s highlight for the day was a seventh place result during the opening MX1 moto. Continuing to build his speed aboard his new FC 450 machine, the young Brit will be looking for a strong MXGP class debut in Qatar. Continuing to impress aboard his Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing FC 250 machine, Thomas Kjer-Olsen secured a sixth and a third during the two MX2 motos to earn an impressive podium result with third overall in the 250cc class. Finishing ninth overall in the combined MX1/MX2 Superfinal the Dane was the third fastest MX2 rider during the day’s final race. Conrad Mewse rounded out his participation at the event with fourth overall in MX2 class behind teammate Kjer-Olsen. Getting a great start in moto one the British youngster brought his FC 250 home in third. Despite missing the start in moto two, Conrad battled his way from 13th at the end of lap one to eighth at the chequered flag. Mewse’s Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing teammate Thomas Covington showed some great speed in France. Third out of the gate in the opening moto, the American suffered a few small mistakes that dropped him to seventh. Finding himself in the provisional runner-up spot in moto two, Thomas went on to take the lead of the race before further mistakes dropped him to fourth. He placed fifth overall in the MX2 class. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team riders will now head to Qatar for the start of the 2017 FIM Motocross World Championship on February 25/26. Gautier Paulin: “It was good to race in front of my home fans. It was my first race in hard-packed terrain aboard the FC 450 and I felt we made some great progress. My highlight for the day was the opening MX1 moto, where I managed to get third. Overall, what I definitely take out of this race is the fact that now I feel a lot more confident to push in any kind of condition on my new bike. All the members of the team have been giving their best since day one and now I’m a lot more familiar with the bike. The MXGP season that starts in two weeks will be a long one. The goal is to take one moto at a time and push hard to reach the top.” Max Nagl: “This weekend we decided to focus on testing different race set-ups without overly stressing ourselves about the results in any of the motos. Our goal was to try new things and see what suits us the most. I’m really happy that we managed to find a really good set-up that we tried during the combined MX1/MX2 Superfinal. Most probably this will be our base set-up for the opening round of the MXGP series in two weeks’ time. The plan now is to take some time off the bike so that both physically and mentally I’m 100% ready for the Qatar GP.” Max Anstie: “It might not have been the perfect day for me, but overall I felt we took some more steps in the right direction. My goal for the weekend was to try new things with the bike and with my riding on the big FC 450, and I’m glad everything worked well. It was a great training event and a good way to wrap up our pre-season preparations before Qatar. With the racing now done, we have two weeks to perfect some small details. The work never stops so we will try to make the most of the time left to get the best out of the bike and myself before the start of the MXGP season.” Thomas Kjer-Olsen: “It was a good day and a great event. We got two good starts and that was very important. Overall, I’m happy I showed once again I can battle for the top. In the opening moto I got a good start but had a small crash in the back part of the track that dropped me to 10th. I got back on the bike and started passing people to finish sixth. Considering the track was one-lined, I think it was great I could make passes. Then in moto two I had another good start and battled my way to third at the chequered flag. We will continue working hard and I’m really looking forward to the start of the World Championship in Qatar.” Conrad Mewse: “I felt good on my bike this weekend. All the hard work during the winter is slowly paying off. I know the speed is there and I now need to work on some small details such as my starts. I had a good jump out of the gate in the opening moto and pushed hard to end third. I missed the start in moto two and had to work my way from outside the top 10 to eighth. I feel that we made some good progress in that kind of hard-packed terrain. We still need to work more in fine-tuning our set-up and suspension, but we now have a good base for the first GP of the season in Qatar.” Thomas Covington: “I’m satisfied with the progress made this weekend. Despite not having fully recovered from my sickness I raced two strong motos to get 7/4. Unfortunately, in the Superfinal I felt the effects of my illness and decided not to take any unnecessary risks. My speed was good during the whole day and I even managed to lead the second MX2 moto for a while, before some small mistakes dropped me to fourth. It was another good test for all of us and now we will be focusing on doing the best we can to start the World Championship with a good overall result in Qatar.” Download all high-resolution pictures here.

  17. Good Day people of the interwebs I recently ran into a problem on my Husky The radiator fan keeps running flatout even when the bike is off?!?! Basically, I got back home from work, parked my bike in the garage (The fan wasn't running at this stage), went off to do some stuff around the house. Then 3-4 hours later I went back to the garage to lock up my bike and the fan was running full blast. Bike was off obviously, keys not in the ignition. I had to disconnect the battery to get the fan to switch off, and then when I connect the battery again the fan starts up slowly again building up to full speed. Coolant levels are all topped up. Any ideas what could be causing this? Electrical gremlins? From what I've read up on it could be faulty relay? Thanks in advance
  18. I just spent my first 10 hours on a 2017 Husqvarna FX 350, split over 2 weekends and I figured I'd post my experience with it so far in case anyone is in the market for a new bike and considering this one. Just a little background: I'm 34 and have been riding for about 12 years. Nothing competitive, just trails and practice track, but I'd like to think I've pushed myself pretty hard across varying types of terrain and I seem to be able to keep up with most people I find out on the trails. I do a mix of tight woods, riverbed mudding, moderate hill climbs, sand, whoops and rocky stuff across the span of Texas environments including snow, rain, bitter cold and blistering dry and humid heat. I always have to go to work on Monday so I don't try any trick riding or crazy jumps or any of that wrist breaking stuff. I started on a Honda 230F, then a CRF250X, then a KTM 450 XC-W before this Husky, with some rides on a RMZ-250, WR250 and YZ250 mixed in. I had to pick a new bike out because my KTM 450 got trashed when I sucked a bunch of sand into the engine. Going from the CRF250X to the KTM 450 was a pleasant jump in power, but felt alot bulkier and less nimble. I got used to it, but never really felt as agile as I was on the 250, so I had been contemplating the idea of a 350 as an "In between" for a long time. I was also getting really sick of working on carburetors so fuel injection was a big selling point for me. During my first ride out I was really impressed with the fuel/air system. It was really cold out, so usually I'd have to choke the bike, coax it to life, baby it for a little while or maybe play with the idle speed until it warmed up, then put the idle back to normal after everything was warm. Not anymore. The FX350 is fuel injected of course, so no choke. It has a little light on the handlebar that lights up for a second when you first hit the start button (no stock kickstarter, but comes with lithium-ion battery stock) to let you know the fuel pump is building pressure. Then the engine cranks up instantly. In the worst case scenario there is a little knob on the throttle body that you can press in to temporarily set the idle speed higher, but when everything is up to temp you don't have to stop to put it back to normal, you just twist the throttle forward and the knob pops back out. The throttle response I got was perfect. Better than the most perfectly tuned carbeurated bike I've ever ridden. That instant power delivery was actually a little problematic at first. I found myself tending to tail slide in greasy clay and leaves quite a bit and I had to use a little more focus on controlling my throttle hand until I got used to it. Luckily the FX has a traction control setting on the left handlebar. It supposedly works by altering the ignition mapping to reduce engine power output if it detects a sudden increase in engine speed without a corresponding increase in throttle position. I couldn't actually perceive this "power metering" in action, but I could definitely tell that the tail quit sliding around as much when the TC system was active, as well as I seemed to have less trouble ascending hills in sand and loose gravel. The stock gearing didn't cause me any issues when I was moving at a good pace, but I did have alot of problems stalling out when picking through technical climbs and woods. I dropped down to a 13 tooth front sprocket and that problem disappeared entirely. I may go up a tooth in the rear later on, but that'd just be to take up the slack in the chain that I created by loosing a tooth in the front. The suspension is pretty sweet. The reviews I've read said that the suspension was too plush from the factory, but you always here that from motocrossers riding a trail bike. I found the ride to be a bit rough on the standard setting so I dropped compression and rebound damping everywhere by 2 clicks and it made it perfect for the rocks and roots I was bouncing around. When I opened it up and hit some ledges and landings pretty hard I did feel like it was close to bottoming out so I turned the fork compression dampening back up to standard. On this bike there's a knob on the right fork for adjusting the compression dampening that I could actually adjust while riding so when the terrain changes you can adapt on the fly. The spring preload works with air pressure, comes with a pump with built in digital gauge. No springs to change out. Overall the bike is incredibly nimble, responsive and forgiving. It feels like it likes a more aggressive riding style but not to the point of alienating the laid back weekend warrior. I spent a lot of time at idle watching my kids pick their bikes up off the ground and fight there way up muddy, rutted out hills and I did boil over a few times. I'm going to buy the cooling fan kit even though that's probably a relatively rare situation for most people. The lithium ion battery and electric starter seem rock solid. I killed and started the bike in cold weather a dozen times an hour helping the kids get up off the ground and I never had a single hiccup or a hint of reduced power output. Maintenance seems pretty easy. Only one oil circuit so its half the time and filters and crap of the KTM 450 I came off of. I don't know if that's a change on the new KTMs or not but either way it's a welcome feature on the Husky. The air filter goes in and out really easily, no fighting with alignment and seals and getting tacky filter oil all over everything while the filter laughs at you. I'll know more about any issues in the next 100 hours or so, but as of now I highly recommend the FX 350 for just about anyone.

  20. I see the 701 manual shows engine maintenance done with the engine on a stand. How can I take the clutch cover off without removing the right footpeg/frame bracket which will mess with the swingarm pivot??? There's nothing in the manual and I don't want to cause an issue with the swingarm if I can find a work-around. ONE cover bolt is behind the footpeg! What a pain! Thanks!

    Fe 501 Idle Problems Help!

    I have a 2018 Fe 501 with only about 60 Miles on it. I noticed today that at idle, if I blip the throttle quickly and then let off the engine will either bog down or die completely. I thought it may be related to the JD tuner I had just installed last night, but I unplugged the tuner and it is still doing it. Has anyone else had this issue? Please help!

    1993 Honda XR250R

    Time Left: 5 days and 14 hours

    • FOR SALE
    • Used - Like New

    Up for grabs is my 1993 Honda XR250R. I'm offering a one owner, clear Texas title XR. I am the original owner, I purchased this new from the dealer all the way back in 1993! I have all documentation as far as manuals that are authentic to this exact model. It has been stored in a barn up until about 2016 where I pulled it out to ride it more. Since then, I've put <1000mi on the bike. The bike has about <3000 original mi on it. About half a dozen times out of the year (if work allows it) I take it up to Sam Houston National Forest to ride the trails. The 250 is a lightweight, powerful trail monster to take on tight technical trails. I have also added a few addons onto the bike. I am looking for a Yamaha WR250R that eases the time of loading the XR up and around to different trails. I installed a oversized IMS tank, aftermarket hand guards/grips (For the trails) and a new headlight to freshen up the looks. The bike has different jetting to improve performance and a supertrapp muffler as well as a K&N filter that was installed from the dealer when bought new (Wild West Motoplex Katy, TX). With every add on installed as noted, I have kept the stock parts as well including tank, muffler etc. The bike is in perfect riding condition. I also had the whole bike serviced which included new fork seals, carb rebuild and fresh fluids from a reputable shop. I am flexible on the price. It is an extremely low mile XR which has not been ragged out like many other bikes are. I am looking for a private seller or a collector. I will not accept trades, only cash. If you have any questions pertaining to the post, please do not hesitate to ask.

  23. Hi guys, I recently bought a second hand husky txc 250. I did a couple of bush rides on it and loved it. It gradually became harder to start, eventually I could only bump start it, it refused to start on the starter or kick regardless of the engine being hot or cold. And now it won't start at all. It will fire and rev a couple of revolutions and then die again if I try bump start it. Here is what I have checked so far : New iridium plug, sparking well. New fuel filter. Fuel pump working and pumping fuel Electrical connections cleaned with contact cleaner and connected well. Fuses are good. Temp sensor is good Efi throttle body is clean Battery is charged up and strong. Exhaust is clear of obstructions Air filter new and clean. Anybody got ideas? I guess I could pull the top off and check valve clearances? But I think this model is shimmed. Also the compression still feels great under the kicker. Thanks for reading Daniel

    17-18 Husqvarna Desmog

    I have a 2018 Fe 501. I’m curious about removing th emissions from these bikes and the ktm 500. Is there a performance gain by doing this? Is there anywhere anyone could direct me that has a detailed write up on this and what exactly is involved in the process? Im just curious as to why I hear people are doing this. I don't see what there is to gain from it. Please enlighten me Thanks
