- difficult to start
- mileage drop extremely
- radiator fan starts also when teh engine is cold
- the lambda gauge breaks

is enough to do offroad for a few hours and the thing parts.

they are not so expensive and I've always 2 in my belt bag.

BUT ther should be a solution for this.

At the beginning was bad, HSQ would just replace the thing and the lambda.
Than somebody with knowledge did a remapping, removed and plugged the lambda and since then the consequences are not so bad and cheaper (the lambda is expensive)

ANYBODY knows the problem?

thanks

andy
I replaced mine a year ago after many days of trouble shooting. Haven´t ridden it much since, but it sure was hard to start before replacing.
Still have the lambda sond (Can´t make come loose no matter what I use...).

in may 2008 I had the choice to buy the '07 carb model (new, 1000 EUR less), or the '08 ie. I'm very sure I took the wrong one.

I'll recheck all the wiring loom, clean and redo all the junctions maybe change the complete loom straight away. I hope that the temp sensor will then work a little longer.

I just gave it to a local suspension tuner (here in Calgary). I'm not having it revalved, just serviced. He disassembles it, cleans all the components and reassembles with fresh oil and nitrogen for $110 CDN.

Take some pics and have a great time! We just got a new Husky dealer here in Albuquerque so they are having an open house on Saturday night....Ill be there. I hope to get to ride a new 630 if they have any, or at least a Hypermotard 7 since they just got some.

Learning things the hard way... the only way I know how.

I could not wait one day for the water pump gasket to arrive in the mail, so I used liquid gasket stuff to seal it up. I was happy there were no leaks, but a couple of days later I kept looking at the factory gasket sitting on the shelf in the garage. Since the bike was still apart I talked myself into putting the factory gasket on. I kept thinking how pissed I'd be if I did not and got a leak out in the woods with banjos playing far off in the distance and getting closer and closer as I'm pushing the bike. After that thought I immediately pulled the pump off! Apparently the clearance in the water pump is so close that by not putting the factory gasket on the fins made contact with the pump housing and busted them off. When I screw something up I don't do it half assed, even the nut and part of the cam shaft busted off!


So I guess my TE busted a nut. I still have not found the fins and will be taking the top apart unless some one has a better idea. So don't rush things and use the right part, or pay, pay, pay.

Husqvarna Sales Rise in 2009 Despite Industry Slump
By Dirck J. Edge
Bookmark and Share

BMW's recent acquisition of Husqvarna Motorcycles coincides with the dirt bike manufacturer's relative success in the U.S. market for calendar year 2009. According to a press release from Husqvarna (below), U.S. mortorcycle sales as a whole declined 41%, yet Husqvarna sales in this country were up 9% compared to 2008. Here is the press release from Husqvarna.

Woodcliff Lake, NJ - While the U.S. motorcycle market endured some tough times as a whole in 2009, Husqvarna had a winning year on the track and in the sales department. "Retail sales were up 9% compared to 2008," says Husqvarna Motorcycles North America President Mark Brady. "This was a phenomenal result considering that 2009 was our first full year of operation in the USA."

According to the just-released industry sales figures U.S. motorcycle sales declined 41% in the past year, yet Husqvarna is happy to have bucked this negative trend. "Our sales accelerated through the end of the year, increasing 98% for the last two months of the year!" This late sales spike pushed Husqvarna up to 9% in y-t-d sales overall. "This is a true testament to both our dedicated dealers and great new products, such as the 250cc model range," explains Brady.

Race results also helped keep Husqvarna sales on the gas. Great performances by Glenn Kearney in the GNCC series (not to mention winning the overall at The Little Brown Jug Enduro), combined with Canadian import Cory Graffunder's EnduroCross podiums, Zip-Ty Racing taking Top 2-Stroke honors at the infamous Glen Helen 24 Hours and Adrien Chareyre capturing an X Games SupermotoX medal were all proud moments. However, the 2009 Husqvarna highlight had to be Desert Master Nick Burson winning the AMA D-37 Desert #1 plate and taking first overall honors at California's legendary Elsinore Grand Prix.

"It is clear from the results that we put some early housekeeping in order, offered a top quality product and presented one of the best retail financing programs in the entire industry," says Brady. He is quick to add that Husqvarna will continue with 6.99% financing for 2010 and even better bikes! "We have some exciting new models joining the range, including the all-new TE630 and SM630. We have also updated the popular 250 model range and we will be announcing some serious 2010 race series sponsorships shortly."

Also, great oppertunity for us to let a dealer what

We now have a Husky dealer here in Albuquerque. PJ's triumph, they are the Duc and tri dealer. They are having an open house, tonight. I was thiking of taking a list of stuff we as 610 owners know they should stock....what shall I tell them? I think the parts guy is a member here but not sure. PJ's is a great shop BTW, I am really glad it was them that took on Husky instead of the local BMW shop since they are very BMW if you know what I mean.

That truly sucks. I will be interested to hear where in the cooling system you will find the broken bits. On the bright side - none of the loose metal should find its way in to the oil.

New toy

Picked up my new ride from Hall's yesterday. 09 TE610 with power-up kit and Leo Vince can. What a great bunch of guys to deal with at Hall's, everything this forum has said about them is true. This will be replacing my beloved KLR. Thanks to everyone for all the info that is shared on this forum.

I'm afraid you've made a horrible mistake. Holycaveman says the KLR is easier to ride off-road than the 610.

SO easy a caveman can do it, so I guess it must be true.

Maybe you'll be that ONE lucky guy who thinks otherwise
