Hello my big husky brothers... And my fellow big single husqvarna mates.

I have a te630 and have seen two different craigs ads for 610s in my area for around 4.5k and was wondering if it would be stupid to go from a 630 to a 610...

Would I be disappointed in the power? Would it save me any *appreciable* weight (I did put on a leo vince full single exhaust on my 630)? Some other benefit I am not aware of? The aftermarket sure seems better. There are so few options and supported aftermarket parts for the 630 it is really very frustrating. Not having access to a larger tank outside of dropping 800 bucks on that ugly safari tank is a real bummer.

craigs ads in question:

Both of those are 2008, so they're fuel injected same as your 630.. Which means the exact same aftermarket tank limitations as your 630.

it's served me well, but just too twisted to get back on. I'm not sure why I spent the extra $ for the red one, it's going to get beat to shit the 1st time out. Oh we'll, it'll look good on the way to the trail.

BaronVonDarrin,

I'm relatively new to the TE610 world. Bought an '09 with the same Renazco Racing seat as is on the 1st CL add ($300+), a Baja Designs aftermarket headlight ($200+), one of those "ugly safari tank(s)" you love so much ($700+) (plus the OEM tank), Pivot Pegz, hand guards, etc. + a Rekluse Z-Start Pro auto-clutch ($600+), which I have come to love... Flew from NJ to NC in February to pick up this beauty/beast for $4,000, and it was worth the trip and the effort...

Also, CL add #2 has been for sale for almost a year now --- and folks with way more knowledge than me have suggested staying away from an SM converted to a TE, if you're really looking to use it extensively off road...

Good luck!

Just joined the club

I just recently traded my old sport bike for a new to me 2006 TE610 to get back into dual sporting. I have had the usual DS in the past, DRZ400, KLR650, Super Sherpa, and can honestly say after just a week of riding it that it is the most impressive bike I have ever been on.

Hours of reading these forums on night shift at work convinced me to trade in my sport bike and i won't be looking back.

There are a couple things I have been trying to remove that the past owners felt the need to change around including a TON of stickers. I have noticed that on level ground at low speeds of about 35 to 45 the rear tire seems very out of balance. The previous owners had some weights on the spokes, so I took the wheel off to see if this was the culprit. Sure enough, the wheel was heavily weighted to one side and I began removing weights until it seemed balanced (removed almost every weight. Don't know what he was thinking). After a short test ride it did seem much better, but still would come and go, just not as harsh.

Anyone have any suggestions? I would like to commute, but this may get old quickly.

Thanks,
Addison

RMATV sells a wheel balancing stand for about $70. Works well for me. Balanced wheels made a big difference. Might as well throw in Motion Pro Lite Locs before you do it.

Doesn't sound like out of round. Have the rear spin balanced. Well worth it. If you are that close to balanced w/o weights, you can try Dyna Beads (aka balance beads). They didn't harm tubes in the 3000+ miles I ran them, and kept the knobbies balances as they wore down. I had already balanced the rim with the rimlock installed & glue on weights.

IMS lower petcock leaking

Both petcocks on the lower wings of my Husky IMS tank leak. Not a bunch, but enough to annoy me. The upper two petcocks are fine.

Anyone have any good fixes? The petcocks just screw into the plastic tank (no brass insert), so over tightening is a concern. I am sure it is leaking where the petcock screws into the tank.

Thanks

I use several wraps of Teflon tape at times with success. Try to make sure there is no excess or loose bits on the tank inside area to clog passages.

Thanks guys,
I will try getting the rear spin balanced to see if it makes a difference. I have heard how smooth the te610 engine is, but i have a fair amount of vibration at 70 mph. Is this still normal being a dualsport, or should it be pretty smooth? I bought it with 13,000 miles already on it so I am not sure if this is normal behaviour. All I have to compared it to is the KLR650 I used to have. Are the two a pretty close as far as vibrations go at highway speeds?

If so I won't worry about the woodruff key being sheared and might just check engine mount tightness for now.

If you remove your oil filler cap, you can observe the balance gear rotation. If it's not moving when you rotate the rear wheel in 6th gear, then you probably have a sheared woodruff key.

Check the top motor mounts under the tank. They are famous for working loose and causing vibration. If it was your woodriff key you wouldnt be comparing it to a KLR, you'd be comparing it to rototiller.
