Cam chain

Well I have had my 06 now for 9 months. I have just about 3k miles on it. My cam chain tensioner is at 8 clicks. I checked it at 2k miles and it was at 6 clicks. So it looks like I will be due for a new chain just shy of 4k miles. Is this a record?

I don't know what the record but I think Woods Chick changed hers at less than 3000 miles and there have been some that last close to 20,000.

Weird how inconsistent the wear can be. At this point I really don't care how often I have to change the timing chain, I love this bike and plan to stick with it through all the quirks. Its funny to think I will get many more miles out of a drive chain than a cam chain.

FYI, make sure you take the bolt out of the end and watch from the spring ( it will fly out ) before you remove the 2 bolts from the jug.

Hi All,

I just did the Trans Eastern Trail - South (TET-S) on my 2008 Husky 610. I did a write-up about how the Husky performed too.

have one in my sights

Might pull the trigger on an 06 te610, is there anything to be weary of when looking at the bike?
Oil leaks? Cracks anywhere? Beside the usual?

Never owned a husky, but hear great things....it's either this or a DRZ400.

Is this husky a reliable machine?

Thanks!

It's everything a DRZ wishes it could be

'06 seems to be the worst year for timing chains (NOT the end of the world...they are not bad to do), but otherwise pretty straight forward and reliable bikes.

Other than that, a good machine for exploring every once in a while the mountains of north Georgia?

Is this easy to do for someone who wrenches occasionally?

I'll see if I can find a maintenance schedule somewhere....thanks, I'm excited but nervous thinking of owning one of these.

Get it and use an APE manual cam chain tensioner after you replace the old one. It will make it last a lot longer!! The 610 is a great bike! It can run 100mph down the road or you can gear it 14/50 and its a monster offroad.
