I made this thread a while back , http://www.supermotojunkie.com/showthread.php?t=57342 , ranting about Husky SA and waiting months for parts etc etc etc.

Thought id start ths thread fresh as its a new page for me:laughingr.

I got my bike back!!! Picked up on Friday. was rainy most of the weekend but i had a ride on monday and tuesday night.

What a differnce the new cam chain made.. Wow. . my engin is so quiet in comparison to what im used to.. almost feels wrong. That metallic tapping/pinging/knocking sound is gone. I will be able to hear when my cam chain starts eating away at the reed valve this time. That noise that disappeared now has been with my bike for loooong. More than 3500kms without a doubt. Maybe i just had a bad chain?

I did have this odd random clutch slipping issue after the service. But i think i figured it out, the clutch cable was routed wrong so it was pinching the cable. I re-routed clutch cable and did an oil change and so far it seems fixed.

My mid RPM stutter was getting less but seems to have returned..maybe with the new plug??

Anyhooo.. just saying i`m STOKED i have my bike back and i will go about getting parts differently next time i need them.

In the two months plus i waited for the camchain i kinda fogotten what these bikes are like.. I know everyone says this but, my Gahd!! these bikes make me naughty. No matter how much i premeditate against it i end up being a psycho on that bike(and loving it) at least once everytime i ride it. SO much fun that its hard to not get a bit wreckless. And i look at every other bikerider on the road(thats not a motard) and they all do seem so bored and tamed. So sedate.

O my fuel warning light snapped a wire by the plug and i discovered that this morning on my way to work. Via an empty tank next to the road:laughingr

Glad to hear you got it back. Two months is FOREVER to go without a bike!

I know how you feel about finding empty too. I had my warning light sensor unplugged while working on things a few weeks ago and neglected to plug it back in until I ran out of gas on the road!
