I can’t tell you how thankful I am that you posted this. I’ve actually been sitting on a Husqvarna Svartpilen 401 for about a year now and need to give it a complete maintenance overhaul plus a new suspension so I can drop it a couple of inches for QOL. I’ve been wanting to use this as my project to get more familiar with wrenching as well, since I DIY a lot of tech stuff personally and professionally, and want to eventually get a project car for the track. Any guidance/help/pointing in the right direction is greatly appreciated.

Edit: Forgot to mention it’s a 2019.

Thankfully, the person I got the bike from had the full owner’s and service manual. I know that newer versions of the bike have an adjustable suspension included, and am wondering if that will still fit on the older bike. Maybe an adapter plate or something like that? I could live without it, with more time I’ll get comfortable wheelin’ and dealin’. I don’t know what kind of changes were made besides the routing of the exhaust after they moved production from Sweden to India for the newer models.

I definitely need to build up my automotive tool kit. Everything I have now is more geared towards computer repair/light house work. The bike has been sitting for a year straight with a full tank of gas and fluids, so just wanted a checklist of what to attack how/in what order; that way I know how to get started on this thing. I know that the manual will provide steps and required tools. How to flush the tank/lines/injectors safely would be nice, I don’t know if the manual is going to have info like that. Checking if the wheel balance is still good/how to adjust. I have some aftermarket stuff to install which should help with known issues on the bike, like the fuel/air ratio being a little lean stock.

Happy to exchange some info if you want to be pen pals on a project, I appreciate any guidance/wisdom you’re willing to pass along. I’m moving into a new place that’ll give me a dedicated space where I can actually work on this thing and get it up to shape.

Any advice on the battery? Should I just replace it with something like a lithium ion battery outright, or can I just stick it on a tender and see if it’s still good?

I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the guidance and thoughtful responses. I’m not in a position to start getting it going immediately, but will reach out (if you’d like) once I start on her. Thank you again for your time and knowledge-base.

It might be the irony of the situation more than anything.

It’s a character arc. Her love/commitment to Spock falters when she realizes how much of him she gets vs The Federation. Time helps all wounds fester. Eventually, she wants out and Jody is there saying he can take her. Fuckin’ Jody, man…

Have you ever been to the beach? Do you understand? I had to turn against them!
