Good luck with it! I love barn finds, I wish I got more of them.

I'd help, but you're in the wrong Claremont.

TE 610 Info

There is a TE 610 thread under Thumpers here on ADV. Good resource generally. I have had a 2006 model since 2007, and I do nearly all maintenance myself. The bike is pretty good in OEM trim. There are a few mods that I feel are definitely worth the expense (Ex. IMS 4 or 5 gallon tank), depending on intended use.

The best advice of all is a reliable source of parts. MotoXotica in Vacaville is best for parts 707-446-4282. Malcolm Smith is OK in Riverside. George at Uptite Husqvarma in OC is very knowledgable, but sometimes hard to reach, and not timely on getting stuff done at least by phone (Ex. I asked for a replacement rear bracket for one of his bash plates. Three months later I still did not have one. I bought another bash plate from a competitor. My riding buddy bought one of his clutch lever assemblies, but the hole for the cable was not right. He shipped it to George who promised to ream the hole bigger. Months later he still has not gotten it back. Maybe George is better if you walk in the door. His products are very well done though.)

Feel free to e-mail or PM me if you have questions.

I'm missing something. Did someone make a barn find of this bike and bring it to you to fix? Or did you find and acquire the bike? If so, do you plan on selling once you get it fixed up?
It's a friends bike and he brought it to me for diagnosis and possible fix. (on a budget, free).

I have tons of time so am giving it a go. I really don't know if it's a suitable bike for him, what with the tempremental kick start and all. Plus it's basically a titled race bike.

I'm going to do the usual no cost stuff to try and start it. After that we will see what pans out.

I bought my 610 from George and he is the Husqvarna master. They are race bikes, but spend a little time and they pay you back with some serious fun.

Carb cleaning is the big issue.
