Husqvarna TE310 Owner's Thread Sign In

I believe this *maybe* the first dedicated thread for TE310 owner's on ADV. I know a lot of Husky riders are Cafe Husky, but I really like ADV and would like to have a sign in thread here, as ADV is where I spend most of my time.

So, sign in! Post pics of your girl! I'll start:

I'll bite! I've had a 2009 TE310 that has served me well for two seasons. I just bought it's replacement but absolutely loved the bike and would recommend it to anyone.

I have about 1260 miles on mine right now. I typically do my own maintenance, but took it to my dealer for the first go-round. Not cheap, $280 without an oil change (which I always do myself).
When you do maintenance, are you going by hours or miles? In the workshop manual, it shows it can be calculated by miles.

Has anyone put any major mileage on one of these? I'm trying to sell mine to get something more dual sportish, but if that ends up not happening I'll probably go to 14-50 gearing with my Safari tank. I'm more worried about gearing than the motor being able to handle it. I have a lot of faith in the longevity of the pre x-lite mill and it had been hammer reliable.

It doesn't vibe any worse than an LC4 and the subframe seem strong enough for a giant loop.

I'd like to know that as well. The dealer seemed to think when I brought my bike in at 1260 miles that the mileage was high, but I think he's confusing the TE with other Husky MX lines. I thought the TE was a dual sport thumper, not a super high revving MX. Am I missing something?

just getting on this thread for the first time, but i bought mine used with over 10k miles on it

good news is i got it for a phenomenal price
bad news is i'm getting some oil drips out of the bottom of the air box, it's dripping just a little bit at a time right in front of the mudflap in front of the rear tire (there is a gap in the bottom of the airbox there, presumably for this purpose to let oil drip out?)

it's due for a valve check at the least, possibly a top end, but i've little experience with the former and none with the latter. anyone want to take an educated guess to what might be causing that? i'm guessing that oil might be getting past the rings and being routed into the airbox, then dripping down, but i could be speaking nonsense, i only half know what i'm talking about.

I usually end up with a little air filter oil dripping out of there sometimes, but never engine oil.

hey i just cleaned and re-oiled the air filter a few weeks ago so yes that makes way more sense. i just got off the phoen with no-toil as well and they concur. thanks for the response.

i think i used too much air filter oil, also. i'm cleaning it and re-oiling again, less liberally this time. was actually hearing a kind of sucking noise when the bike ran, like it was pulling air through a straw kind of noise (ran fine despite that but it still freaked me out). hoping a less liberal application of filter oil will negate that.

its a new bike to me, and my first dirt bike so i'm learning everything for the first time :)

As to the 09 fork seals, don't use Marz OEM, they are garbage, SKF or even All Balls will solve the problem of the oft weepy seal.
i'm not good enough to spend time upside down yet :)

the bike did come with a leaking fork seal, i replaced them with race tech seal kit. way more expensive than all balls, but i didn't know if all balls were reliable and figured it worth the extra scratch to (hopefully) not have to deal with taking the forks apart again soon

Eek 2013 TE310R chain guide

Picked up new te310r about a month ago. I've changed gearing fron 13/40 tko 13/50, added under armorment and a low seat. My question is; with the larger rear sproket the lower chain guide seems to deflect the chain slightly, is there a different part on the TXC310 (whick uses 13/50) that I should get or will the chain just wear in the plastic? The deflection is about 1/8 of an inch.
Waiting for spring is torturous!

Waiting for spring? Are you crazy, or do you live far north? I live in Atlanta, GA and winter is prime time to ride! It's too damn hot in the summer to ride, you can only ride mornings and evenings.
Sorry, I don't know the answer to your original question. I ride with a 13/40 right now, cause I'm dual sporting. When I do tight woods it's a 13/50. Considering an ironman 45T rear. Heard good things about it.
Edit: Answered my own question, you are in upstate NY...

It should be fine, it was a rock that eventually did mine in so I went to a TM designs chain guide, it's good stuff.

Thank's, I haven't ridden other than in a snow filled driveway. Do you know if the TXC mapping will go into the TE? I've never owned a FI dirtbike and it may be fun to play with different power delivery curves.
