You have to mix the bad with the good and at least, it was not straight up a hill.

I plan to ride this Sunday so I will send you one back...

Question

How can I adjust the correct tension of the chain, because it seems that, whatever I do, there is a difference between the lines of the chain tensioner/ adjustment ?
Some pictures of your rear axle would help me a lot.

Thank you !

does not matter so much if the lines match up, so much as you look straight down the chain from the back, and adjust so the chain is straight.

Exactly that's my problem...the lines does not match, even if I look at the rear wheel that's looks straight.
Thank you for your answer.
Tomorow I will upload pictures with my rear axle adjustments.

Ignore the lines, i dont think the axle blocks are the same size, which would mess up a visual measurement. Just make sure the chain is straight, and neither the sprocket or spokes/rim are damaged :)

Goodluck!

I didn't think that : '' the axle blocks are the same size '' ...
From the pictures, it seems that the right block it is a little too open. Am I right ?

Let me ask you something else : what point do I have to consider to match with the lines? The head of the screw, the front/ end of the block...that's my problem.In the service manual it's not specified WHAT to align with the lines.

Thank you once again.

Using the center of the axle as the reference point, it is off.

Make sure the swing arm is located correctly. Make sure the swing arm bearings are OK.

Keep us posted.

Dropped price to $225 rim is true, less than 25 hours on the complete front if it isn't sold off the the metal bin to recycle. Great for a spare for a racer or just to have a front for when you taco your current rim.

I have a used front rim off of a G450X and it may fit the Husky line also.

The rim started getting a crack in the factory seam and BMW warrantied the crack with a NEW complete assembly so I had this one rewelded and kept as a spare. I no longer have the bike so its time for it to go.....

Its a good idea, and a decent price, but of course the weld makes me nervous.

Now that BMW has sold Husqvarna to KTM, I wonder if the new models will still use the CTS feature (coaxial traction system) seen on G450X & HQV TE 449 / 511

Axle Block Index Marks

"What point do I have to consider to match with the lines? The head of the screw, the front/ end of the block...that's my problem.In the service manual it's not specified WHAT to align with the lines."

The problem is BMW forgot to include index marks on the axle blocks. Based on the location of the marks on the swingarm, it looks like there should be an index mark on the axle blocks directly above the actual axle centerline. I added these marks to my axle blocks with a tri-corned file. Then I filled in the mark with red paint to spot them easily. See pic. I do believe that the blocks are the same size (easily checked when off the bike) so one could just measure the adjuster bolt exposed length as an alternative. Hope this helps.
