This is my third Husqvarna motorcycle. I have owned Husqvarna motorcycles from both the Castiglioni era and the BMW era. This KTM era Husqvarna is one the best motorcycle I have ever ridden. The stock jetting on the TX300 is horrible, but this motorcycle handles so good it compensates for the shitty factory jetting.
Time to work on the carburetor and get this motorcycle running right.
P.S. : The YZ450FX is gone and I am glad to be back on a two stroke.
I miss lane splitting. And that’s about it.
I live in AZ now and the time it takes to get to the nearest riding area is 25 mins instead of 2 and a half hours. I like it here already.
A Yamaha YZ450FX and a Montesa Cota 4RT replaced the Husqvarnas.
I started racing district 37! Sadly, the racing season has been cut short because of a hairline fracture on my right heel bone. Transferring trials skills (if any) to a dirt bike is no easy task, and I found out the hard way.
Riding this bike is a visceral experience…
When I saw the launch videos of this motorcycle back in 2008, I fell in love with it. I thought I’d never end up owning it, because it was/is pretty expensive. But here I am, 6 years later, with a brand new 2014 Vmax.
I don’t think I’ll ever be able to own a Singer 911 😛
And it works great !
1100ml of oil instead of 800ml…
I also removed the ECU controlled secondary throttle butterfly. The result is better throttle response, and the willingness to wheelie without using the clutch 🙂
