I love you but I hate you-----------
washer looked good on Front drive gear, did not move. No junk anywhere in my case, screen looked good! yeah I have one!
torque on drive gear? Less than 5 ft bls. The weight of the damn torque wrench loosened the nut when I flattened out the washer--
It gets better!
Clutch basket hub nut? same deal, hardly any torque at all on the dam nut. No wonder the clutch basket wobbled some.
hOLY SHEET BATMAN, WHAT A HACK JOB!
This is clearly someone that either had a major case of head up ass or was out to get folks.............
My woodruf key under the drive gear was in 4 pieces...........All recovered and I can reconstruct the key thank god...........so no shit running around in my cases.
Damn what a joke..........
I love this bike, but that i s just total BS.........
OBTW, my timeing marks were aligned and not offset with any other mark, so I am good there, I hope! RE-ASSEMBLED AND EVERYTHING TO PROPER TORQUE.
Buy the motion pro gear tool, makes this job so easy.
Okay venting over. Easy job, time for a few "Great Divide" yeti's to get me back to my happy place!

Should it take two years?
This is a test post.
As a new 2008 TE 610 owner with 1300 miles and having read hundreds of pre purchase posts, it is discouriging to think
all this discovery by owners of total mis-torqued assembly situations has not been responded to by the factory assemblers.......since 2006. Maybe BMW is the best thing to happen to the Husqvarna brand as owned in Italy after all.
I wonder what the dealers do with our feedback.............or maybe they don't get much of it..........we keep it here?
I just want to monitor how this post........posts. I'm back to the garage for my re-assembly check list.
My Husky is head and shoulders above my 2002 DR650 in performance............but the ol DRs are pretty sorted out.
Well, I just "reviewed " it and I guess I'll post my worthless rant............as a new ADVrider inmate.

As I don't think this has been mentioned do this issues also apply to 2004 and earlier TE610-E 's? I have just bought a good one with 17000klms on it. Is there anything else I need to watch out for. When do I need to do the timing chain? Your input would be appreciated.
always look on the positive side, life is much easier that way
