It might be cheaper to box it up and ship it to me. I'll tear into it for free. Shoot me a PM...I even get 75% off shipping at Fedex.

That's mighty generous of you! Heck I could drive it down and maybe still make 1 day of the Tahoeacr ride this w/e!

I just dropped it off, and already having second thoughts about it. They are gonna take like a week to even look at it, I got 4 days off for this big ride I wanted to do and I could at least get it apart saving $100 or so.

Yeah, bring it down. If we fix it you go to your ride, if not..you order parts and go home. It would be nice to have the chassis here to test fire it. We've got MotoXotica within 50 miles and without me to clear out his parts shelves he should have most everything in stock.

Shoot me a PM if you need me. I'm working swing shift now without internet access between 1PM and 11PM.

Thought I might need to check my cam chain tensioner, since I haven't checked it since 3000 miles. It now has 7572 miles, looks like 5 clicks. Probably need to check my valves, they haven't been checked since the 600 mile service. But its running sooo good right now.

My Husky is now worth 25 cents more than it was a few hours ago.


So last summer up in Montana the 610 fell over in a parking lot on its right side and the brake lever punched a hole in the case. I pulled it off and jb-welded it. This spring in Moab it fell over on the same side again and popped the jb weld off. It has only been seeping but time to "fix it" again.







Since the damage occured in Montana.. I figured this was only fitting:





...now I just have to figure out how to fix this thing (again)



The great thing about having more than one bike: When one is broken you can ride another.

The sucky thing about having more than one bike: There's always one (or more) broken.

OK, well I took the motor to the dealer this morning. But then Larryboy offered to help diagnose it, and I thought at the very least I could take it apart even if I might not be able to reassemble it. Anyways, I went and got the motor back from the dealer.

I got into the Stator side this afternoon to see if maybe I mis-installed the flywheel. It looks good to me, nothing that looks like the scrape sound-maker I have. No metal in the oil. Anybody see anything weird about anything in these pix?

Tell me about it. I'm still fixing a bike that got crashed two years ago.

Nice thing for me is that it's always summer here.

xymotic: I haven't been following this thread too carefully so I dunno what your symptoms are... but whenever I see the left cover off the first thing that pops into my head is the times the stator side is the bushings fall out/get lost. They are very loose.

You probably already know this.. but I'd double check every gear has a bushing it rides in in the case cover itself.

i.e. the little round suckers in the bottom right of this collage.. you can see where they go in the *cover* above them.. the one is missing in my pic

I bent my rotor the first year I had the bike ('08) and put two blocks of wood on either side of the rotor with a c-clamp and pried it back straight. 2 and a half years later, still good to go.

...now I just have to figure out how to fix this thing (again)




I'm working on my fix for that dumb-ass sub-sub frame as we speak. In the meantime, I thought I'd post some pics of my mods to the sub frame.



I fabricated some 1/8 in 5086 AL gussets and had them welded up (TIG'd) to the weak struts that Xymotic managed to break. The cutouts are for the dirt bagz racks that will be installed. I had to slit the fender well (who cares?) with a Dremel tool and a cutoff wheel to make it work (left side).



Right side.



I also gusseted the crap out of the muffler heat shield. You can see where the aft bolt hole started to crack and the majority of the bend under the bolt holes started to crack. The big gusset is to keep the whole shield from flapping in the breeze, which started the cracking in the first place. I used 1/8 in 5086 again. The back side of the bolt holes are also gusseted. The extension that is riveted on is to protect the Wolfman saddle bags.



While I was at it, I gusseted the battery tray, which also was starting to crack.

I will post pics of the sub-sub frame when I get it done.

I will be riding with the Jerzy Boyz (DockingPilot) in Sept out West and it's never too early to prep the bike so it's bulletproof.
