    Hi Guys,

    Here is a shot of my custom vitpilen 401. I have been a member for some time, but never had the chance yet to post my bike. You can see many more photos on my Instagram channel @paul_vanml.

    Here are the things i changed.

    – Hyperpro suspension

    – DNA racing filter

    – Akrapovic exhaust

    – Motogadget blinkers front and back

    – new paintjob

    – new seat

    – custom license plate holder

    – small OEM parts from Husqvarna, like plates, mirrors, levers and so on.

    The only thing i will change this winter is a new set of wheels and Pirelli Scorpion tires. Hope you like it!

    have followed you on insta for a while, love this – was thinking of having mine wrapped, a blocker has been the yellow stickers on the body work and where i guess they’d leave marks if removed as they appear to have been varnished on… how did you over come that problem to achieve a very smooth finish?

    cheers!

    Thanks for following Jamie! My initial thought was to wrap it as well, but you are very right about the yellow stickers. I decided to take it all off and after sanding it i spraypainted it in lambo grey. Same count for the back end which has the yellow 401 which i did not want anymore.

    Congrats! This is the most beautiful Pilen I have ever seen!

    I have a Svartpilen since one month, with the same akrapovic and a cat delete, and I ´d like to put off the yellow stickers from it.

    After that I would like to put away all the varnish to have a black mat bike.

    I have no idea of how to make this varnish dissapear… Does anybodybody can tell me how to do?

    Anyway those Pilen are really a lot of fun to ride!

    Keep Enjoying!

    I want to get a rear shock. Do you have the model so I can contact my local dealer?

    @bettercallpaul Love the direction you took with your bike. I’d like to know where you had your seat done. It looks so much more comfortable than the stock one.

    I absolutely love what you have done with it @bettercallsoul! Got some questions i was hoping you could answer tho.

    Ive ordered the Svart and waiting impatiently for it. In the meantime im looking around for moods and better upgrades. I wanna make mine a bit more scrambler friendly. Mainly for fire roads and gravel, but you know…Also for the looks of it 🙂

    – Hyperpro suspension: Which modell is it and how does it ride with the front cartridge. Do you know of any other more scrambler suited suspension for these bikes?

    DNA Filter: Does it make any sense to purchase this filter if i dont upgrade the exhaust?

     

    Thanks!

    Did you use Motogadget pin lights? Are they on either side of the tail tidy?
