toroweep

Took a bikepacking trip through Utah then down to Toroweep. North rim of the Grand Canyon. This bike is truly amazing!

What LED signal relay to use?

I have a 2008 TE610 and have LED's on the rear and want to put them on the front also. However, I realize that if I put LED's on both ends I'll need to put a LED specific relay flasher on but I don't know anyone that carries such a thing with the two round pin style that these take. Anyone know where I could get one or will I have to do a mod and hook up the flat blade style?

air filter

Maybe a noob question, but getting to know this 06'....

Can the air filter be re-used, washed, dry, and replace?

If not, is there a cheap source for them via the internet?

Muchos gracias!

Riding Highlands Park (Cedartown, GA) tomorrow after changing the oil, should be epic!

The twin air filter that comes as OE on the 610 are $30+-. Yes, you wash and reoil. It might be a bitch the 1st time if you don't know what filter oil was used, as they all have a different solution to break down the oil.

Gas works good on any oil, but will mess up filter glue if used more than a few times.

Or a purpose filter cleaner solution from bike shops. If you use kerosine (avoid using gas!) make sure you wash it out with detergent afterwards and dry well before re-oiling with filter oil. Be very careful with the bolts on the air filter cover - do not over tighten ... the studs are a known failure.

No-Toil makes a very good detergent powder filter cleaner that you mix with warm water. It works very well on their filter oils (2), but neither are as highly rated as some of the old standards, PJ1, Uni, etc. Each has a proprietary cleaner, but kerosene followed by No-Toil detergent works very well. I strongly suggest getting a second filter so you always have a spare that is clean, dry and ready to oil. Bel-Ray's waterproof is surprisingly waterproof. It is very important to distribute evenly. A gallon ZipLoc makes this less messy for the pour on or spray on, but Lasted gloves are simplest. This stuff is very messy and doesn't clean up without solvents. They all have alcohol or similar solvent to help make distribution easier, and you should allow a few hours for it to evaporate, otherwise the engine can suck some of the oil out (or in). Lastly don't forget the filter grease! It seals all the joints between filter box and the filter foam. I like No-Toils filter grease because it's so easy to wipe off with soapy paper towel if needed. Next time you have the filter box off, go ahead and JB-Weld those nuts into the back so you can fearlessly use Loc-tite on the screws. If you don't care about aesthetics, use a strip of duct tape to keep screws on the bike WHEN they do back out.

That's my two cents.

How to deal with the thread inserts.

I use grease on the filter seat in my YZ, which has a different style of filter, but on the Husky, I've seen no evidence that it would be of any benefit. There's good contact all the way around. On the other hand, make sure the rubber boot from the airbox to the carb is properly seated on the airbox. It's another place Mario or Luigi has been known to be sloppy at the factory.

If I could get some billet shift levers made for the 610 would you buy them?? I have a friend / riding buddy that owns a shop with laser cutters and I'm thinking about having him do a run of them. I just need to know if people would buy them? I would have them made so the Hammer head tips fit perfect.

It is usually enough to just dry the filter, but the detergent certainly won't hurt anything.
For the benefit of TIGER indeed - I was just noting that it is best to clean any solvent residue out for best life of the foam...and that one does not want to oil a still damp filter.

I am sure you will have takers as nothing plug and play out there that I have seen. I am sure you will get takers from the CafeH side as well. I have an alu one off a 510 I think that I am still going to see if it works ... or can be made to
