In my 08` (will be the same) if I drain it really well (make sure the oil is hot and lean the bike side to side pretty low with both drain plugs off) should take 1.8L. Better to have bit less oil than too much ;) a bit of a pain if you overfill it.

Just looked at my new RK z-ring chain and its missing a bunch of the rubber "z" rings. It felt heavy and just not right from day one. I pulled it off and it's a stretched out as the renthal will 3x the use it replaced. It rattles when you shake it. The renthal didn't do that. I've put the old renthal back on. It's got plenty of life left and was soaking in motor oil for the last 5 months. If anyone local wants to pick up the RK sxo 114 link chain I paid $120 for its yours. 06002. I'm going to post it on the karma thread too.

I may be going to take a look at a used '07 this weekend and was hoping for some guidance in lieu of reading a 1700 page thread .

Anything specific I should look for on a pretty much stock 2007 with approx 5k miles? Is there a way I can get an idea of the cam chain condition without the luxury of being able to take the bike apart on the spot? I assume a slack CC will make a noise?

Are service manuals and/or parts microfiches available online somewheres?

Thanks in advance and maybe you'll be seeing me sign in here officially in the near future.

I used a t-bolt hose clamp wrap the end in tape to prevent chafe and it make a nice stand-off

Started bike after cam chain, and valves were really loud. Bike prolly ran 1 min.

Already readjusted the valves, the engine is not hot to the touch but do I really need to let it sit 'just to be safe'??

Yes. The head may not feel too warm, but those valves (especially the exhaust valve) are nice and toasty. Let them cool

Hey, new advRider here. I don't have a te-610 but i do have an sm-610. Anyways I am planning on converting it into the te-610, and i have a question about using handlebar risers. I recently changed the clutch cable and it seems to just barely fit. So does anyone know where i can find a longer cable? I don't have the risers yet but I plan on picking some up soon.

MotoXotica, Taskey's, Hall's should all have extended clutch cables. The one I've never seen is the throttle enricher dohicky.

I use a DID X-ring and would not use anything else. Definitely do not use anything cheaper than a O-ring.

Barnett and Motion Pro actually make them.

Been a while since I posted in the TE 610 forums, mostly due to the fact I moved into a new bike last year, a 2012 Triumph Explorer. The Husky opened my eyes to the fact riding the street can be almost as much fun as riding in the dirt, plus, most of where I live in CA is off limits where the dirt is concerned.

So, last year I started thinking about what street bike would I like to get and it came down to either the Stelvio or the Explorer. In the end the Explorer won me over on many levels and took possession of it June 14th last year. Two weeks to the day from buying that Explorer, I had the misfortune of hitting a deer while doing about 50 MPH at the apex of a corner, with out thinking about I threw the left foot down, ala dirt biking style, to get back over in the corner and not cook the double yellow. That momentary contact pretty much destroyed my left knee with multiple tibia plateau fractures and displacements. Just over a year past that accident and I am back to work and beginning to ride again, the Triumph and not the Husky, no way to possibly get myself onto the Husky with out carrying a milk crate around.

In that year I went through surgery and therapy both bikes sat there, the Triumph at the dealership I bought it from and the Husky in my garage. The Triumph was pretty much pampered by the dealership and kept on a battery tender the Husky, not so much. Last weekend I was feeling frisky and rolled the Husky out of the garage with the total expectation of that battery being 100% toast, it had been over a year since the key had been inserted and the bike started. So I check a few things over, toss key into slot and turn to on, holy cow, a few lights come to life so there is some juice in that Varta still. Not expecting much I hit the start button and the motor turns a couple times and fires right up??? Are you kidding me?? Never expected that in a million years, I did get a small ride on the bike but with out the ability to firmly stand on my left leg and throw my right leg over means it is probably not going to get ridden for quite some time. I was just blown away that battery is still alive and kicking, most died in the first two years of ownership. Thought a few of you might get a kick out of that, I can now be called a 1% with regards to batteries...

I have the usual extra master link, tire tube and patch kit, etc. I am only wondering what might break on thebike that would be hard to acquire on the road.

Just a quick followup. TAT completed. Bike worked great. I did not even rejet for high altitude (although it was noticeably down on power over 6K ft). I broke the "reinforced" kickstand. I had it rewelded and then it held. I broke the Lynx fairing (operator error), but was able to get it band aided in Colorado.

Fantastic bike for the trip. I am shipping it home. It's a keeper for now.
