I'm not a particularly fast rider, I preffer single track but I enjoy hopping ditches, logs and such.
If you are on slick wet dirt/mud, forget about a trials tire. A Bridgestone 404 rear running tubliss at 8psi is a lot more versatile.

Tubeliss, so I can convert my rim to tubeliss setup? Did you do this only for the rear tire and run a tube on the front? Sounds cool, who manufactures the kit you used?
Tell me more!

It wasn't a misspelling, the name of the company is Tubliss

Just follow the installation directions to a T and dump in about half a cup of Stan's sealant into the tire and about a 1/4 cup into the bladder and you'll be in like flynn. As of now I only run it in the rear, but I'll probably be doing both ends soon enough.

I got a puncture flat which put about a 3/8" hole in my tire and I didn't even notice it was flat until I got back to the truck. To fix is all I did was stuff in two plugs and another 1/4 cup of Stan's and it was good to go.

Oil and filter help!

Ok, managed to get 1/2 hour of riding in (in the snow), now time for an oil change; my dealer is having trouble getting filters, the reccomended oil I can't find in New York! Of course I still don't have a manual from Husqvarna yet but internet tells me use Castrol Power 1 10w-50 which doesn't seem to exist in USA. Who's using what oil out there and where are you getting filters?

Oil filter

The TE310 uses the same oil filter as does the Honda CRF250x, HiFlo HF116, I believe is the right number. Those filters are readily available.

Seems high to me, but I don't know what your regional market is like. There is a 2012 TE250 for sale locally with 75 miles for a grand less. I'll bet it is worth it on grins alone, but you can probably do better price wise.

TE310r oil change, is there a screen??

I was able to find Spectrol 10w-50 so thats what went in, rather pricy at $16 qt. The bike has a drain plug with magnet which had a little black on it. I'm guessing typical breakin no metal shavings. I wasn't able to get the oil sump hose fitting off it's a 12mm I think and my wrench seemed to want to strip it so I'll pick up a new 12mm for the task. I wanted to look to see if there is a pickup screen behind the fitting that needs cleaning!
Does anyone knows on the 2013 model if this screen exists?? (still haven't recieved owners manual) I'm also trying to purchase the shop manual but Husqvarna isn't replying to my dealer, maybe lag due to new ownership. Pretty quick easy job maybe took one glass of wine (too cold for beer still snow on ground).

Next question/ airfilter removal?

Ok removed seat, the electrical wire were tight across the air filter. after an hour of removing panels plugs ect.. made enough slack so that wires could be moved aside without having to unplug 3 plugs. While I was there I also taped up some battery connection that were close to the frame.
Ok now onto air filter removal, removed battery and platic bracket for battery and regardless of what I tried the filter seems larger than the hole I should be removing it through! Along with the correct manual maybe they forgot to send my the magical pixy dust to shrink the filter?
Anyone have advice?

Just picked up a new 2012 a few weeks ago.

I've only had it out for a few miles on road but so far so good.

Light, nimble, and responsive. It is a very different bike from my DR 350.

Can you rotate the filter 90* and "roll" it out towards where the battery used to be?

Damn what a Husky crew!

What octane did you end up running? Please keep this thread updated!

Either is is the camera angle or it looks like you fixed the subframe.
