Hello all,
I have ridden Kawasaki my entire big bike career, after having 3 450s (06,09,11) I decided that I had too many injuries on the big kahuna, and I dropped back down to 250, my last bike was a 2015 KX250F. I have yet to deal with air forks or anything euro. After a few years and watching bikes change, I’ve decided to get a 2019 Husqvarna FC350. So my question for you all is what tools or nicnacs or even mods have been good for you 350 owners? I’m picking my bike up this week, pictures to come! Thanks guys ??

Up one or two teeth on the rear sprocket. Exhaust, re map. Call it a day.

Yellow flo plastic for sure! I went up one tooth on the rear, and I do need to install the aggressive throttle cam. Set your sag and get your fork dialed in enjoy-fantastic bike. I think one tooth on the front would be too much personally. 1 tooth on the rear was enough for me. Next year a nice FMF exhaust, because, well, FMF rules.

It should come with the bike. In 17 I got a goody box with with hand guards, a spoke wrench, fuel line filters and the quicker turn throttle cam.

The older I get, the faster I was.

You'll now be able to use all of those 13mm sockets that you've collected over the years.

Wasn't expecting to see/hear about a foopter. Once again, for all you noobs....."Speaking with your wallet" only applies to buying a new 2-stroke!!!

Congrats on the new bike by the way. smile

I will echo what most have said. I also drilled the side cover for some additional air. Quick turn throttle cam, play with fork pressures 1 or 2 psi at a time, either 1 or 2 teeth bigger on rear or 1 smaller on front (this was too much for me). I did a FMF slip on and remap, and very happy with it. On the 19 its supposed to rev freer than my 17 does, so maybe you wont need as much.

That bike would fit perfectly in my garage....

It started like that, but we’ve gotten to the point where theres so many spoke with wallet four stroke threads that its pointless to keep trying to correct.

Spoke with wallet = 2 stroke thread

Spoke with anything else = everything else

I am 6’1” and 208lbs, hoping the stock setup can be kosher.

Also, anyone with 2019’s having to drill the air box holes that Keefer mentions (or we see on most factory stallions)??

Wow, that is dead sexy my friend! Could I pull off that look being an old late 50s rider, or would it be too fast for me?!?!?!

I never rode a 17 or 18, but this seat was yanking my butt out of my pants all weekend, very grippy.

I am a little "girthier" than you average rider but I did the following:

1) Ktech coil spring conversion - being right around 200 lbs I'm sure you're good for the air spring set up

2) +1 on the rear sprocket (looking at +2 soon)

3) Acerbis skid plate

Buy some torx wrenches/ socket heads, and make sure your foot peg springs are installed correctly. Also, I'm not sure if you installed your WP fork graphics or if the shop did it but they're on upside down, some people don't care but it would drive me nuts!!!
