Has anyone been able to determine what was added to the TE630 45mm front fork to shorten the total range of compression and ride height from the TE610? My assumption is that there is a spacer somewhere in the 630 fork that is not in the 610.

Here are links to the shop manuals with a schematic of the 45MM forks and I can not determine where there is a difference..

Looked at one today...dayammm they are nice. If I could afford one and keep the TE I would do that. I just really like using mine as a dualsport though.

Out to Chapparals to pickup a Michelin Desert front. They are getting very difficult to find online, backordered everywhere. Chappy's had two of them, $95. Nice aggressive knobby - gonna give it a try out. Getting ready for Death Valley Rally.

i have shortened conventional forks by placing a spacer on the damper tube .It pulls the damper/topout spring down.Without pulling a set of 630 forks apart it would have to on the damper or a shorter damper tube is used on the 630

Happy 630 owner

I haven't been on here for about a year. Had to check out some of the 650 talk. I have to say that I am glad that I bought the 630 when I did.

Yep, just south of Rocky Ford crossing near Neal Kansas, the terrain may not be the most challenging but the great thing about the Flint Hills there's always a road you haven't been down yet!
And how about that "custom" rear rack that mounts to the stock hand holds, if I do say so myself.

While I would be happy if the current rebadging of bmw's into husky's is brought to an end I don't see to what benefit it is for KTM to buy Husqvarna?
Would it be to eliminate the competition and expand their production facilities? Have they turned Husabergs into blue KTM's, would Husky's just become red KTM's? If Bmw would have just pumped money and management into Husky and not made them take the failed bmw models they would have had better success imo.

BMW did pump money into Husqvarna.... and while I wasn't a huge fan of the G450 based 449/511, they were better performers when revamped into Huskies than they were as BMW's.

The TR650 Terra as the new bargain "upscale KLR", if left in the marketplace, would be a huge seller for the re-entry and cheapskate sector
As a BMW, the 650 wasn't that popular for it's price.

It is strange to think what the lineup will shake out as....Husaberg no longer does the 70degree motor, so they truly are just blue KTM's...and Husqvarna's only non-BMW derived motor is the X Lite in the 250/310.
What happens to it?
KTM has the very popular 350 that the Husqvarna 310R redhead was designed to compete with...

I agree they pumped money into husky, what i was trying to say is they should have stopped there and not forced the bmw designs on everything 450 and above. I never bought that line about the 630 engine not being able to be made to pass emissions, that was just and excuse to kill it off and replace it with the 400lb+ red klr, and it wasn't just the engine, all husky engineers did was try to polish that "turd-a" imo ..... I would much rather see ktm sourced parts as part of new husky's than bmw parts, if you have to choose one or the other

TE wasn't replaced by the TR. TR is for a different market at a different price point. They decided they wanted a piece of the 15,000 a year KLR market instead of the 1,000 a year KTM 690 market. Looks to be a great decision thus far and will help the entire brand more than any other bike Husky has released in the states.

If KTM dealers will start selling Husky parts then I am 110% behind this change. BMW dealers supported nothing and the lack of Husky dealers across the US has always been a limiting factor to their success and survival.

KTM buying Husqvarna

Let's not confuse ownership of Husqvarna as a company to 'combining the brands' so to speak. We didn't find husky parts at BMW, I don't think we will at KTM either. Unless they intend to completly absorb the brand, I think you'll find Husqvarna as a company to stand on its own. Husky has it's own factories, management, dealer network, parts distribution, etc. Sure there maybe some consolidation, but my take is the parent company sees growth opportunity of the brand and profits going forward. These are business transactions, not a desire to maintain any given brand history other than how it can attract retail customers for the product, and thus profits.
