For some reason it looks like you may have your rear brake rotor on backwards to me. Was looking at some pictures of the Geico bikes with the Moto Stuff rotors and their rotors look like they were on the other way.
Yea, it should have a slight angle to push dirt out, vs a sharper angle facing forward. Thing is the name is facing outward on that rotor so i dont actually know if its backwards or not haha. Possible design flaw? Probably not a big deal

You guys are exactly right! I honestly did this on my last Honda CR 250r build too and had several people comment saying this same thing haha....I just threw it on there real quick to see how everything was going to look and give Motostuff a little logo love on the pictures :-) When it's finished, it will be installed correctly.

Good eye though!

Hey Moto - do you know exactly what color of Cerakote they used on your brake components?

I just got the parts in the mail to do the same thing on my Husky. The picture of the Honda axle blocks on the Yoshimura website are not correct. You get what moto120 got and not what's in the picture just an FYI

But I purchased mine of eBay because they were cheaper

FINALLY....some good progress on the bike :-) Sorry for tall the pictures but I'm quite pleased with the progress now. Just waiting on the forks to show up from FC (with some extra love involved haha) and we will be in business.

Too many pictures to sort thru and organize...maybe in the future I'll organize these a bit better and write some captions haha


Still need to take care of that orange on the # plate


Love the right side of handlebar setup...ARC lever, ARC clamp, Motion Pro throttle tube, re-routed KXF cables (to in front of the handlebars), Trick Engineering coating, and Race Tech Ti pivot bolt :-)


Still really liking the look of the Cycra KTM front fender and Stadium plate


Really excited to have these Xtrig ROCS clamps paired with the bar clamps...seems like anyone who uses them love them. Also to note, the Nihilo gas cap...really nice. Maybe SLF Motion needs to come up with a carbon fiber gas cap for these KTM's/Husqvarna's ;-)


Yoshi Ti full system, Hinson clutch cover, Boyesen SuperCooler, BUD Ti pegs, all mounted with Ti hardware. Also, I really like the looks of the Acerbis frame guards


Rear brake...solid






Had to spice up the rear axle a bit haha


Trick Engineering coated ignition cover and TM Designworks sliders/covers throughout


New wheel, sprocket, chain, and slider




ARC clutch lever


Those clamps though :-)


I have a problem with paint marking major bolts haha....just makes it easy to check for movement




Love me some rainbow colored Ti bolts :-)


Pumped to find a drilled washer and drilled Ti bolt that fits the shifter perfectly!


Of course have to mount the Cycra front fender with drilled Ti bolts and drilled washers


From behind ;-)

Was going to wait to show the graphics installed BUT I just can't haha....absolutely love how these turned out. The photo don't do it justice but the yellow will be a flo/neon yellow. Might not be for some but I love 'em :-) Thanks to Bryar over at 180!

Looks insane! Did you find a good deal on the Ti axel or just pay up? I've been thinking about going to the CRF style...Evil

Is it just me or the pictures, but all these bikes lately that have swapped to the crf rear axle, does the nut on the brake side stick out really far? Maybe it just appears that way

I was thinking that very same thing. Mine sits fairly flush with the CRF axle and Ti axle nut.

Sorry for the lengthy hiatus, been busy trying to keep up with my part-time nights/weekends job SLF Motion...it takes up any free time that I might have AFTER the 2 kiddos get the attention they need AFTER I get home from my regular full time job...so motorcycles are pretty far down the list at the moment.

Not much to update here, really just been acquiring some more parts. Installed a lot of the Ti hardware and a few small bits but that's about it. I'm pretty much ready to ride this thing HAHA...far from it.

Hubs coated and back from Trick Engineering...damn these things are badass!


Front brake system looking awesome! Coating done by Trick and lever is the ARC composite model.


Titanium footpegs from BUD. These things are trick looking!


Seems like getting the springs into these pegs is going to be nearly impossible haha


Colored Ti bolts holding the brake line guide :-)


Got the Boyesen Super Cooler installed...of course with Ti hardware :-)


Received the shock back from WP


More aggressive brake pedal tip installed with colored Ti hardware


Will install this FasstCo. return spring kit on the rear brake pedal...always loved these things


Build is awesome! What did you paint the Brembo logos with?

I agree with you guys about the nut BUT I will say that all threads are engaged. If I was too concerned with the looks, I could mill off the top/lip of the nut and the recess wouldn't look so sever...maybe I'll do just that ;-)

Is it ok to get partial wood from just looking at a dirt bike ? I DID NOT SAY THAT.
4/18/2017 5:19am
That's a totally normal and natural response ledger.

I like where this Husky is going!! Wow.

Just a heads up, you might wanna watch that shifter bolt like a hawk. I tried using a different bolt and washer with some loctite and found out there's a reason they usually have two lock washers.
