I've pretty much given up on it. I've come to believe it's actually kind of dangerous, esp on a dual sport.

When it dies, and it will. you're screwed and have NO thermal protection.
I do really like it though, but for me, longer term and esp on backroads trips I'm switching to down thermal undies :)

So rather suddenly I find myself looking at the prospect of shipping my '08 610 to South America. I would be looking at a two month trip.

The bike currently has ~6500 miles on her. Tasky's did the 5K mile service, then the bike (but not me ) ran the WABDR, then I did the oil/filter. The CCT was at 7 clicks when Tasky's checked it.

Is there anything I should be preparing for, repair or maintenance-wise? I'm looking at 10k miles tops for the trip. I have at most 3 weeks to get anything else done (I did say this is short notice)

I'm running a LiON battery, so the battery tray shoud not crack. I have Dirtbagz Rangers, so the rear subframe should be good. The suspension has just been redone. Overall, the bike is ready to ride.

Also, short of installing a Rekluse clutch, anything that can be done to reduce the huge clutch pull ln that thing?

bastard.

Have you reenforced the subframe?

And I'd have a real good look at the footpegs and make sure they are mounted flush.

Probably a good idea to check the woodruf key.

the only other way I know of is the hydraulic clutch from Uptite (if George still makes them) but I don't think it actually changes the pull that much.

Someone makes a steel disk that epoxy adheres to the left engine cover, and protects our from farting punctured by the shifter. Soon as I find one I'm ordering. Also going back to garage to finish brake-in on Rekluse.
Currently C200L4, C150M3, WR250 throw-out spacer, 6TC balls and 21 ss balls. Engagement seems be 2100, so lots of tweaking left. All details will be posted here and in cafehusky.com. Clutch is so light I didn't think it was working API I installed that wr250 spacer. Probably not needed. More later. Oh nothing works until you adjust clutch lever pull at 4500+ rpm.

4500 RPM clutch adjustment, you read right

It's part of the Rekluse Z-start Pro initial configuration. I'll be posting all the details on Husky Forum, but it's in now, works as advertised, engine braking like stock, one finger clutch if you want to use it. Sits still while idling in first gear, and starts moving soon as you move the throttle. Engages hard enough to loft the front end if you've got the traction, but as hard as dumping the clutch would.
Not a difficult install, but can be a bit confusing if you've never done before. I had not.

The Rekluse site lists an autoclutch for the 510 but not the 610. Did I miss something?
