    Default Tips on Making Your 2017 Husqvarna TE300 Easier To Ride

    As I Get Older, Less Fit, Less Riding Practice, The More I need Help Controlling My Dirt Bike.

    MY PERSONAL RIDER SPECS:
    My Actual Rider Weight With Full Enduro Riding Gear = 187 lbs.
    5'-8" Tall and My Pants Inseam Is Approx 31 Inches.
    59 Years Old Novice Riding Ability with 24 years of dirt bike racing and riding experience.

    REMOVE EXCESS WEIGHT:
    (Remove Starter, Battery, Lights, Kickstand, etc.) and Install an OEM 250 SX Front Front MX Number Plate and Rekluse Radius-X Auto-Clutch.
    Resultant Actual Bike Weight Without Fuel on Bathroom Scale = 221 Lbs. (Std = 230 Lbs.)

    ENGINE PERFORMANCE MODS:
    12 Tooth Countershaft Sprocket.
    REKLUSE "Radius-X" Auto Clutch.
    STEAHLY 13 oz "Ring Type" Flywheel Weight.
    Power-Valve Aux Spring = Yellow at Std Preload Adjuster Position.
    Map Switch = Higher Performance.

    CARBURETOR MODS:
    "Easy" Throttle Cam.
    JD Jet Kit.
    2018 TE300 Intake Manifold Flange.

    SUSPENSION MODS:
    MX-TECH Shortened Suspension 49mm With Stock Valving.
    TUBLISS II Rear.
    Tire Pressures: Front = 7.0 PSI, Rear = 7.5 PSI. (Front & Rear Std = 15 PSI.)

    SUSPENSION SETTINGS For 49 mm Shortened Suspension:
    Fork Springs: 0.44 N/mm, 250 mm Free Length. (Std = 0.42 N/mm, 277 mm Spring Free Length.)
    Fork Oil Level = 100 mm. (Std = 100 mm).
    Fork Comp = 19 Clicks Out. (Std = 15 Clicks Out.)
    Fork Reb = 17 Clicks Out. (Std = 15 Clicks Out.)
    Fork Preload Adjuster = +3. (Std = +0.)
    Fork Tube Installed Height = 1st groove (Std. = 2nd Groove From The Top).
    Shock Spring = 45 N/mm (Std Rate 45 N/mm.)
    Shock.HSC = 2.00 Turns Out. (Std = 2 Turns Out.)
    Shock.LSC = 21 Clicks Out. (Std = 15 Clicks Out.)
    Shock.Reb = 17 Clicks Out. (Std = 15 Clicks Out.)
    I These Suspension Settings Work Well For Me, But Are Preliminary, as I am Still In Process Of Improving My Suspension Performance. I might Reduce Suspension Shortening To 34 mm To Increase Traction.

    RIDER COMFORT MODS:
    SEAT CONCEPTS Comfort Foam & Seat Cover.
    PRO-TAPER "EVO Hi-Woods" Bars.
    "ROCKY MOUNTAIN" Clutch Lever.
    "MOOSE" Gear Shift Lever, (To Lower And Extend Lever Tip).
    ENDURO ENGINEERING Oversize Brake Pedal Tip.
    OEM 250SX Kick Starter Lever. (Better Grip when muddy and wet because It has a longer Foot Pedal.)
    Skateboard Tape on Frame Sides (Glue On Soft Rubber Strips, opt.).
