Hi everyone just after a bit of advice, I picked up a 2017 with supposedly 20 hours on it but it seems like it's done a lot more. Was just wondering if anyone knows how the hour meter wraps around the ht lead as it comes from the factory?

I've got a picture of how mine is, but I believe it may have been disconnected at some point, just looking to compare and maybe say for certain that it has been tampered with at some point. Cheers. Photo Photo

That is exactly how my hour meter is wrapped for what it's worth. Yours looks factory installed. Some people can put 50+ hours on a bike and it will look showroom fresh while some put 5hrs on it and it looks clapped out. lol

My hr meter on my 18 250sx has gone to "error mode" 3 times now. When this happens it does not record the time until I pull it off the top clamp & push the reset button on the back side of the meter, it resets to what the time was before it went into error mode, not zero.....but if you left it in error mode it would not record engine run time until you reset it.

Well that's good to hear, I hope it is a genuine 20hrs.

My experience is the latest generation husky, while beauties, wear cosmetically fast. My bike at 10 hrs looked like my Ktm at 50 hrs. Idk if the plastics were softer/weaker but the thing just wore poorly. Still mechanically great but cosmetically not so much. Have two buddies with new huskies who experience the same fwiw.

I bought a 17 with 37hrs and it had a few normal light marks, cases etc. I have since put another 3 on it and the shroud/sideplates are wearing quick. I blame my knee braces, gonna keep wearing them tho.

Yeah they do look gorgeous, nicest looking bikes out there I think. I'm going to do oil and filters and see how it goes, It starts like a dream and runs spot on so that's a good sign at least. Thanks for the replies everyone.

I think it's just that they are white. Everything contrasts with white. I thought about that before I bout my Husky. Remember the Hondas with the white airboxes? The aluminum that rubbed on from the frames was impossible to remove.

If you take it to a dealer they should be able to download from the ECU exactly how many hours it has done.
