Wouldn't know -- mine's red.

In other news, looks like shipping the TE610 over to South America for two months is still an option, so I'm going to have to hold off on the Rekluse for now. I got a quote for $1900 from Vancouver to Lima, air freight, one way.

I did order a set of the Indy Unlimited clutch spring cups, and I think I'll have time for Tasky's to do some work on the bike before I crate her. I'll bring a spare water temp sensor and a spare set of wheel bearings. If Tasky's doesn't get around to doing the timing chain and chain follower rollers, I'll bring them with me and do them in SA. Plus a couple of spare, extended clutch cables.

Sorta kinda, I took a leave. Now I'm back, but Thinking real hard about Baja :)

Where are you gonna get your clutch pressed back together? I have those cups I need to install too. Does the Rekluse use the stock basket? Mine's lurching again so I think I've probably trashed a second one.

If my girlfriend weren't in South America on her bike right now, I too would be looking at a month in Baja

Looking at the writeup on cafehusky that StolenFant posted, looks like the Rekluse is using the stock clutch basket.

I'd love to get the easy clutch pull of the Rekluse, but for now larryboy thinks if I replace the clutch spring cups plus the clutch bushing, it will make the clutch pull more manageable.

[QUOTE=His Pistolship;20251854]$700 ?! Gees man. I would love that tank but not for that price. Wow. Thanks
No you can't easily see the fuel level in white. Flashlight beam into the fill hole lets you see level. One huge advantage is how low it carries fuel. Three plus gallons are below the top of the motor. You can really feel this in the tight technical, and if that's a long way from home, just fill'er up However, the tank covers almost everything. You can't even adjust the idle with the tank mounted.

clutch spring washers (cups)

ADV's Indy Unlimited, Dan, did mine, fast, very reasonable. He makes the washers too if you don't have the harder ones. He also said Barnett cable had the least friction, but nothing else lightens the feel. Admittedly all I ever tried was three cups, and didn't notice any improvement in feel.

Thanks I'll probably just send the cups back to him and have him do it. I haven;t ridden in like two months, If I had half a brain I woulda already done it :)

My Husy Dilemma

Hello Everyone --- I'm new to this even though I have been reviewing and checking out all the good information you have to offer for all of us cool 2006' Husky TE610 owners. Well I am starting off with a dilemma. Not trying to be a drama person but have a beautiful bike with a fresh motor: rings, upper gaskets, timing chain, tensioner. Pretty much a new clean sealer upper end, well riding it back in late September a San Diego Cop pulled me over at night with no tail light plus out of date registration of one month. (Police Suck) They impounded the bike which I had to get registration and sticker. The impound was a huge joke of an amount $1450, well I didn't have that kind of money so had the shop that sold me the bike float me the money to get it out with the order that I pay them back in two months. The two month is up and I paid them $300 but still owe $1150 to recover the bike. In order to make this arrangement they wanted the title and sign an agreement that if I didn't pay by said date they would keep it. Well December 25th is the date and I can't come up with all the cash. It sickens me that the very shop that sold me the bike and all the add-ons will possibly be getting it back for pennies on the dollar and it is in perfect condition. Well does anyone out there have a heart for a fellow rider in need. I have been on a streak of back luck with employment and collecting money I have due to me. Hopefully someone can help me out till I get the $$ together and don't lose my pride and joy. Please get back to me for December 25th is next week and I'm getting pretty damn nervous. Contact information for me is dantnicholas@gmail.com or 619.846.0870. I try to post a picture. Thank you everyone.......

Anyone need the heat treated thicker clutch cups PM me.
I also do the service on the outer clutch hub to install and re-rivet with a quick turn around if needed.
At around 10,000 miles every Husky on the planet needs to replace these. I stock 1,000s and ship worldwide.



These have held up for over 40,000 miles in a few bikes and the guys are ordering another set when they replace the outer clutch basket due to grooved fingers.

Sorry to be the guy to say it, but it's a bit fishy that your 1st post is so sorry/sad looking for $$ just before Xmas when good people on here are in the giving spirit. If this is all true, them I'll be the 1st to say sorry and send you a $20 bill, but I will need a lot of proof! Happy holidays! Hope it gets better!

I agree with you. Typical panhandler story - complex and way too much detail. Sorry if I seem crass, but I've seen this too many times.
