Sometimes they just get crap in em up against the diaphragm. Does it click or make any noise? Maybe blow some compressed air up in there?

You obviously need to make sure it's got power, and then after than it's just a replacement or something like a stebel and make your own bracket. I'm actually pretty happy with stock, it's surprisingly reasonably loud so depending on cost I might just do a like-for-like replacement if it were me.

Does anyone know what size oring is used for the oil filter cap? I have an oem part number but I'd rather run to the hardware store and pick one up today - for cheaper

Just finished up the Shenandoah 500 Dual Sport Rally (through the mountain of Virginia and West Virginia). My Saturday ride was 9hrs 30 min / 160+ Miles of 90% dirt. My Sunday ride was 6hrs 30 min / 125 + Miles @ 60% dirt. I love the 2006 Husky 610 even more now than before.

No mechanical failure / 1-tube. Does feel like upper motor mounts are loose (vibration @ grips). Bike ran flawless! Cracked front rotor survived and I was aggressive on the brakes.

My first group ride and my first ride in the Mtns








On top of Reddish Knob 4397 ft.

What Kind Of Shop Does This?

I ordered a oil pump cover from BMP for my 07 Husky (bashed a bolt head on it and busted an ear off the cover removing the bolt). BMP did not have it in stock, so I placed an order, called them back 2 weeks later and they said "we got the bolt and gasket, but the cover is on back order"............"when do you need it?"

Me: "two weeks"

BMP: "OK check back in a week"

So a week goes by and I call them up.

BMP: "Uh, Husky doesn't seem to have any right now, when did you need it?"

Me: "next week"

BMP: "let me see if I have a used one laying around for you, call me back in a few days"

Me: "that was going to be my next question, Thanks"

A few days later I call them back.................

Me: "did you find a cover"?

BMP: "yeah, but since we can't seem to get the cover from Husky right now I sent the cover to the machine shop so we could have some custom ones made up...............when did you need it?"

Me: "in a couple of days"

BMP: "OK, how about this? I pick up the cover from the machine shop, send it to you for the weekend, and you send it back after your ride?"

Me: "I'm only 45 minutes from you, I'll pick it tomorrow"

So, I picked up the cover, had a good weekend ride and sent it back to BMP

What's the best sand / mud tire, min 120/100/18 130 or 140 works too. I need a good sand tire for the Hammer Run in NJ, Nov 2-4. I don't care if it only lasts for the weekend. I just want good traction in the deep sand.

I would guess the Dunlop 908RR would be pretty good in sand with those wide center lugs and still capable if not heavy for most other terrain.

Maybe OK in sand but my most hated tire on the 610 EVER. If it's a one time deal all in sand there's gotta be a better non-dot tire than the way too expensive, hard & heavy 908.

I think I'll go with the Shinko 540, it's cheap and has good reviews.
