I'll be heading to Big Bend in a few weeks for some riding -- shoudl be fun.
Congrats Magus. You'll find all the TE-610 guys around here very helpful. I've had some early issues to deal with on mine, but they seem to be sorted out and I had a great high sierra ride with it this afternoon. I can tell there are many days of fun ahead on these things.

Valve feeler gauges

Hey guys I haven't seen these mentioned anywhere so I thought I'd bring them up. I just saw them hanging in the bike shop & picked up two. I'm not sure how well they'll work yet but they look better than cutting & bending a regular set of tappet gauges. Nice & compact.

I saw some but easy to miss in 15 pages of chat without much technical info. There is a great index of KTM technical info but they are each in seperate threads so you can do a search. How about getting the same level of info for Husky.

You mean something like this:Husqvarna TE/SM-610 Index Thread

Keep in mind the 610 as released in 2006 is just getting to be known. I have over 5000 miles on mine and have done my best to become knowlegable but only time will give us a more comprehensive resource of info...

Dan

btw you can recommend and or start threads for the Index

Once we get 20,000 views I am going to petition the management , but in the meantime I guess we need to bump it more often perhaps by adding new threads. I am gonna do a complete tear down this winter and do a write up on regreasing and at the same time do a write up on most of the mods I will have done including tank, rad guards, lighting ...winter, I will have the time to dedicate to some write ups and work a little more on the Index as well...

email from IMS today:
The tank is still about 4 weeks out & will cost $225.00. They still don't know if petcocks will be included. They are shooting for 5 gal but won't know untiil it's done.
They must be doing things the old fashioned way. If I did a tank in my CAD software I could tell exactly how much gas it would hold. Oh well, my credit card's starting to quiver.

Mine too!

Magus, I will see you in Terlingua. I haven't seen a photo with two TE 610's in it, yet.

Well, I would really have liked the tank a few months ago...

Anyway, by the time it comes out, the snow and ice will be on the ground, which will be frozen.

Next spring, maybe
