Hammerhead?

StolenFant, if you are still engaging where you were, your gap should be close to what it was. You might think about dragging the rear brake to smooth things out in the tight stuff. Maybe a LHRB too.

I can think of two, $650 cost and it requires fairly regular adjustments and tweaking to keep it working in top shape. It is not a set it and forget it setup. But still a very tempting addition, especially when installed with a LHRB.

Xymotic, I do need to drop the rear brake pedal some how. I've heard a part from the Honda XR650 has a lower profile clevis that allows this, but haven't confirmed yet. Right now I can't ride with foot over it at present.
Xcuvator, Since the TE doesn't have a cush hub I want you keep the clutch lever for asphalt for my occasional commutes plus all that engine braking really scrubs knobs off the rear fast.
Silver bullet, I'm hoping it won't take much adjustment once I settle on spring configuration. I may even add three Tungsten balls for harder engagement if I move the engagement much higher. The motor didn't have any issues pulling from 1500 in sand, but I do fear a much higher engagement would allow the motor to over work the clutch. I'll keep y'all posted.

Brake pedal mod with Honda clevis detailed in Husky Cafe - I did mine with the standard one, also there. You shorten the plunger rod slightly and I removed the top nut above the clevis... read here:

Brake Pedal Rivet

Here is a tip: Grind off the stock rivet on the brake pedal tip and replace it with a countersunk bolt (head facing the clutch) and nylock nut. This lessens the sharp contact against your clutch cover and also makes replacing the tip easier also. I use a KTM replacement brake tip.

Took this

Up here

With these guys

The 610 was amazing! I only fell once and didn't get stuck at all! We went through, up, over some crazy stuff and I was blown away at how the 610 just went and went! No studs and tires I would have likely changed by now if it was summer time. The 4x4 quads broke through some bogs covered in ice exposing stuff that would make most including myself think twice about, but I was able to power through no problem. The only bad thing was I didn't charge the battery in the liquid image googles, so no vids this time.

Hypothetically speaking, can a EFI 610 engine get damaged with running a straight pipe?

I can say, not hypothetically, them things are really loud

And has anyone done anything creative to repair/re-enforce the subframe when the muffler support studs rip out? Again, ya know "hypothetically speaking"

Needs some advice on used Te 610

Thinking of purchasing a used 2003 te610 from owner in different state. He states that bike will only start in neutral so if you stall at traffic light you need to find neutral to restart bike .Does bike have a safety switch similar to a kickstand safety switch ? He does not know about switch but also states that neutral is hard to find. Is this normal or a sign that there may be other issues ? I know that some bikes are harder than other to find neutral but thought by 2003 that all bikes would start in gear with clutch in.Have not ridden a Husky so I have no insight on this issue. Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated as I am about to pull the trigger on bike. Thanks

Sounds funny to me. Clutch dragging maybe? May want to follow your instincts that there are other issues.

Hi - Yes indeed the Husky has a clutch micro switch much like a kickstand switch. Many (myself incuded) bridge it out and is very easy to do and leave in place at the lever. Re the finding neutral = this is a norm with these bikes ... one learns to live with it and can find neutral before coming to rest, blip it etc. No biggie just a quirk and one should avoid trying to adjust the clutch too much to enable an easy neutral find as it puts stress on the selector rod arm which can then fail.
