Husqvarna TE310 Owner's Thread Sign In

I believe this *maybe* the first dedicated thread for TE310 owner's on ADV. I know a lot of Husky riders are Cafe Husky, but I really like ADV and would like to have a sign in thread here, as ADV is where I spend most of my time.

So, sign in! Post pics of your girl! I'll start:

I'll bite! I've had a 2009 TE310 that has served me well for two seasons. I just bought it's replacement but absolutely loved the bike and would recommend it to anyone.

I have about 1260 miles on mine right now. I typically do my own maintenance, but took it to my dealer for the first go-round. Not cheap, $280 without an oil change (which I always do myself).
When you do maintenance, are you going by hours or miles? In the workshop manual, it shows it can be calculated by miles.

Has anyone put any major mileage on one of these? I'm trying to sell mine to get something more dual sportish, but if that ends up not happening I'll probably go to 14-50 gearing with my Safari tank. I'm more worried about gearing than the motor being able to handle it. I have a lot of faith in the longevity of the pre x-lite mill and it had been hammer reliable.

It doesn't vibe any worse than an LC4 and the subframe seem strong enough for a giant loop.

Eek 2013 TE310R chain guide

Picked up new te310r about a month ago. I've changed gearing fron 13/40 tko 13/50, added under armorment and a low seat. My question is; with the larger rear sproket the lower chain guide seems to deflect the chain slightly, is there a different part on the TXC310 (whick uses 13/50) that I should get or will the chain just wear in the plastic? The deflection is about 1/8 of an inch.
Waiting for spring is torturous!

Waiting for spring? Are you crazy, or do you live far north? I live in Atlanta, GA and winter is prime time to ride! It's too damn hot in the summer to ride, you can only ride mornings and evenings.
Sorry, I don't know the answer to your original question. I ride with a 13/40 right now, cause I'm dual sporting. When I do tight woods it's a 13/50. Considering an ironman 45T rear. Heard good things about it.
Edit: Answered my own question, you are in upstate NY...

It should be fine, it was a rock that eventually did mine in so I went to a TM designs chain guide, it's good stuff.

I'd like to know that as well. The dealer seemed to think when I brought my bike in at 1260 miles that the mileage was high, but I think he's confusing the TE with other Husky MX lines. I thought the TE was a dual sport thumper, not a super high revving MX. Am I missing something?

Hi. Just bought the bike, less than 2 hours on it.

Did not stay clean very long.

Thank's, I haven't ridden other than in a snow filled driveway. Do you know if the TXC mapping will go into the TE? I've never owned a FI dirtbike and it may be fun to play with different power delivery curves.

I'm kind of shooting from the hip here on the 2011's but the 2009's you had to buy the TXC ECU. I'm not sure if the I-Beat will let you accomplish the same thing. For $200 and change I bought the JD Powersurge tuner and while it didn't add a ton of power at my altitude (6500ft/1985m) it really smoothed out the throttle response across the range.

Rear Trials Tire

I've seen in above photo's trials type tire on rear. Some of the rides I do on PA are slick and was wondering anyones thoughts, which make and model, if they likes it or not, how they handle, ect? If a tubeless will go on with the use of a tube and how difficult they are to mount? Also the bike came with one rimlock are two required? I'm not a particularly fast rider, I preffer single track but I enjoy hopping ditches, logs and such.

I want a TE310!!!!!

I ride a 1200GS mostly, but want a lighter bike for some Great Lakes Dual Sport rides coming up in Michigan. After exhaustive web browsing - I think the TE310 is the bike for me. My CRF230 isn't dual-sport equipped. My TW200 is fun, but a bit underpowered to lug my ass through the deep Michigan sand. I would need to pony up for knobbies on the GS and it is really heavy...

I love fuel injection (starts everytime) and the TE310 seems like the right power/weight trade-off for me.

Anyone wanna swap for a '09 CRF230 or a '10 TW200????
