I do have a new (used for one ride) motosportz riser set. I believe they're 1 1/8" rise and all the cables were fine with those. Had to take them off since i bought a scotts damper for which i had to buy different clamps. I could throw in the 08` bar clamps as well if you would like. Pm if interested.

There's originally a little rubber bumper that's supposed to prevent this from happening. It doesn't work.

The forward carbon fiber hanger on the LV holds the plastic away from the metal can, so no more melty.

Yeah, but go down the highway for 60 miles or so on an MXer.

Just ordered some ASV shorty levers for the 610. $220 for the set from ASV direct. Is that a good price? Or should I have shopped around?

What's the thought on running a non O-ring chain on the 610 since I'm only ever riding off road? I wash and oil my oring every ride and would take care of a non oring the same way.

Which bike levers did you get? Because I don't think they list huskys. Did you get the clutch perch too?

What's the advantage of running a non o ring chain?

Called ASV direct and got the lever and perch ( pro 3 ) clutch and just the brake lever. I'll post up part #s and review when I get them. As far as the O-ring non O-ring, I feel like the O-ring gets trashed and traps grit.

Did you get the shorties? I was thinking of cutting mine but I will end up with the asv ones since I will soon know the part #`s.

You asked if you think you overpaid.. I think most companies charge more if you buy it from them directly. For example JD tuner from JD is $220 / motoxotica $200. Scotts damper from scotts, over $640 / the whole kit from brp was ~$550, ppegz $169/$130 from amazon. Pretty huge savings just by looking around.

Have you ever considered a left hand rear brake? Rekluse sells one for the te511 but I'm not sure if the rear MC`s are the same on the bikes

Is anyone having problems ordering husky parts from their local BMW/husky dealer? Its been two months since I can't order from BMW/husky of countryside, IL. I know KTM tried to push BMW to sell husky/ktm`s, maybe that's causing it?

Yes, the shorty ones. I was looking at doing the LHR brake with auto clutch, but where I ride, I can stay in 2nd gear 80% and never shift and I've heard mixed things on the autos w/ the big bores, so for now I'm keeping the clutch. However, the ASV lever will fit the hydro conversion w/ small mod, so it will work if I do change over.

oil filter

1Lunger, I'm getting ready to change the oil in my 06' and was curious about oil filters...is there a number of choices as far as aftermarket or other oem models that will work for the husky?
I have a yam, honda, kawa, ktm dealer pretty close to me....I was going to get a filter and some Spectra 20w50 to do the oil change.

Anyone else have info? Thanks, I appreciate it.

10w60 is what the 09 calls for. I like the Motul full syn. For filers I like the Hi Flo and I think the pre 08 bikes use the158 model. Be sure to check the bag filters. The clutch side is not really necessary, but not a bad idea. The stator side is every other time.

1.6-1.8 Quarts, engine has to be super dry to get 1.8 in it.


I found the right side screen to be the most important one to check, it can break and is the last line of defense for the oil pump.
