Husqvarna 500XC - when enough isn't...

Postby subarumy98 » Mon May 05, 2014 12:05 pm

Going to be playing with a Lectron carb in the near future.
Will keep you posted of progress.

By all accounts, should make everything even easier and cleaner in the midrange. Promises easier starting too - not that its been problematic as such, but lets see.

A plain brown box arrived yesterday.
Not a sex toy - but will probably have a similar result....

The intake and airbox sections have machined spacers and bell-mouth already fitted.
Looks very good.
The overall length is some 5mm shorter, which actually fitting into the frame that much easier :)

Mounted up and ready to fire.
Roll on the weekend - hopefully.

Postby subarumy98 » Thu May 08, 2014 7:09 pm

I went for the base installation which Kelly on Caf???? Husky has used to great effect. Hamm's requirements for sustained high-speed are different.

Having said that, I am keen to see how the stock replacement system works.

Updates to follow.

With Hamm and I both on The James Gang team - sharing is caring....

First I dispelled all the hype from overseas on these carbs. Starts easier, runs smoother etc etc.

Headed into the garage
Std Husqvarna starting procedure.
- Fuel on
- Hook 3rd,
- Rock back and fourth 3 times
- Check the alignment of the planets (optional)
- Find TDC
- Kick hard (with a boot of course)
- 3rd kick and Swedish Steel fired

Starts easier - check
Warms up easily.

Smoother pull off - check
Tootle around a little, till thoroughly warm
Boot it.

Pulls hard - not
She F%&%^*N RIPS - check

Next up is some track time asap !

There is a definite difference before and after. Much crisper all round.
The powerjet - need to go do some more reading as to setup still.
But she feels more happy now than before.
