Sorry for the long wait. Been busy sorting out little problems on the bike and getting the snowbike kit ready.


So it all started off by chopping the downtubes to make more room for the std engine. It's a little bulky too compared to the ktm 505 i had...


Then test fit the engine and build a new craddle



And build engine mounts too (cardboard mock up in the picture)

And build upper mount too



Then i built a cardboard mock-up of the oil tank (ds engine is dry sump)




Then i made the 3D cad of the tank and had the alumimium laser cut. Welded myself

Thanks from bigberger

Looks great you have some mad skills .You could make an aluminum subframe with tank inter grated init for fuel . It would solve two problems for husaberg adv riders fuel and subrame strength for bags or passenger.

I would actualy like to make an aluminum tank that replaces the stock one AND the subframe. All in a large single tank assembly. But that would be one hell of a project. Just that small tank was like 2-3 complete week-ends of work. Replicating the awkward shape of the stock tank and the complex shape for the rear fender to fit properly would take huge amount of time to get right.

sorry guys, Flickr wasn't cooperating and been busy finishing the snowbike build !!

So i was saying: Custom fuel rail to have fuel line straight from the tank and down to the TB. Fuel line is about 4 inch long.



Then i used duct tape to make the mold for the air box. used some kind of epoxy filled tape for that duty hoping it would remain somewhat flexible, but it's not very strong, result is kinda sketchy. And i had to coat it with rubberized paint because it was porous too.





Then modified the swingarm to fith the KTM 640 caliper bracket on the left and i've cut all the other (now useless) brackets.


modified the 640 brake pedal and made a 90 deg adaptor for the brake hose



Then i managed to merge the two wire harnesses together to get the bike harness to power up the ATV's fuel injection properly... countless hours in there too. No pictures worth showing, just a bunch of wires everywhere.

Just missing some brackets for the hand guards and chain guard to pass tech inspection for on-road duty but it will wait for a few weeks still because it's got the snowbike kit on right now.


So looooots of work!! and still more to do, because it only has 45 HP stock and it's damn slow!!! But working on the engine will be the fun part
Thanks from jon andersson and tourist

P.S. Got a friend and colleague at work to design me a wrap kit for the bike, inspired by the original Sonic 500.







So i'll be wraping my black plastics in red and the whites ones with those decals... can't wait to get these done.

This is one cool looking bike! Looks like factory built from the pictures. You have some good skills. Next put those skills to the engine because 45 hp won't do. For supermoto looking this good and awesome snowbike you need at least say 75-80??

Thanks. I am putting lots of efforts to make it look pretty stock. Apparently people get around 55hp with very little mods to these engines.

last year i was running the snowbike kit on my KTM SXF 505 (apparently 66hp from factory) and it felt pretty good power wise.

So my guess is that anything above 65 would be enough to have good fun on a snowbike. This bike is quite heavier than the ktm 505 so my goal of 70-80 hp sounds realistic to keep a similar power to weight ratio to the 505.

I weighted it in at 295 pounds full of fuel and all, ready to ride with the supermoto set-up. The KTM 505 was 251 pounds with the supermoto set-up but it had race slicks which were much lighter, smaller magneto, smaller battery, no external oil tank (1.2L less oil), no thermostat, no speedometer, etc etc.

i realize i didn't put up the "almost final" pictures just before i instaled the snowbike kit on, only missing chain guard and master cyl reservoir mounting bracket. Yes it's low, i lowered the suspension 2 inches so i can touch the ground :P
