A sealed box with a top opening/snorkel and the a/c type drain would be better IMO. [/quote]

A frame mount filter under the tank or on the steering head like a Husaberg would have been nice but I'd not want to lose the thin central frame tube design just to get a conventional airbox.

Question Parts availability

Anybody having issues getting Parts?

I have had an order in with Halls for over two weeks.

They say Husky is taking forever to ship parts orders.

Anybody else have this problem.

I was just handed a box of Husky parts by the UPS driver. I ordered parts from Hall's online on 2/20 and 2/25. The parts were charged on 2/26 and arrived today - that's 4 business days or 6 actual days shipping. And 6 days to get the earliest ordered parts. Pretty darn good.

Jeff was batching the two orders or I'd probably have gotten some parts even earlier.

Two parts are on back-order... that may be the case with your parts. Sometimes they have to come all the way from Italy (or China ).

fwiw... the bottom of our stock airboxes does have a drain (assuming yours isn't plugged with grease like mine is ).

I just got home from spending the afternoon with my 610 on a motocross track setting up my suspension... only to find coolant all over the right side of my bike.

Argh.. will dig in tomorrow to see what's gone wrong.

I rode my TE through a pretty deep water crossing last June at a national dual sport event. Some of you guys may remember the clip I posted of it. The bike never coughed or hesitated. Yea, the bottom of the air box was wet but as far as I could tell she never drank it into the mill.

I'm pretty sure there is one washer under the lower bearing, but where does the second one go? Above it, or on top of the upper triple clamp?

Hope someone here has been through this and can steer me straight.

Thanks,

I just did my 450 and put both under the bearing. It looked like they were needed for clearance.[/quote]
I just greased the bearings in my 610. I didn't see any washers, but I didn't remove the lower bearing, so that probably is where they go.

Which other two, front? What is brake side rear?
There are three bearings in the rear, one 25x47x16 and two 25x47x12. If I remember right the two smaller ones are on the drive side and the big one is on the brake side. Could be wrong there...

You may be able to go to a local body shop to do this, they usually have a rivnut tool and may be able to help with this.

Yup.....

My new bike has a seam in the tank that weeps and it's been quite the ordeal to get it replaced. First I had work my way up the chain at my dealer till I got the owner. He called Husky and they shipped the tank out that day. I went away for a couple weeks and when I got back the dealer shipped the tank to me. I open the box,,, nice new tank.... ?????? what's this???? a big hole in the bottom of the tank where the fuel pump should go!!!!!! Husky sent the wrong tank even though they had my VIN. No the dealer can't get HUsky to return their calls,,, or so they tell me.

Actually the local guy happened to be a friend of mine that I didn't know had the tool until I was lamenting about the lameness of my dealer.

Can someone tell me what the center to center measurments are for the bolts holding the bar clamps are? Umm for the 08' I guess.....

And I should be able to find this one easy but I'll ask anyways.... what's the steering head angle? I've heard tell these turn like old caddys.......

Well i did the install today on the full Leo Vince x3 system, at first start up i smelled the new exhaust then i was like hmm whats that smell? smells like plastic. yep that was my front fender melting on the head pipes, looks like this headpipe stick out futher then the stock one> had to cut the fender to keep it from melting anymore and will have to reroute the gas tank overflow that runs down the front of the frame. I was impressed with the power gains just from a short rip down the street.
