Ya, I made it back home no problem, thanks again to everyone for the trailside troubleshooting help. Ben even rigged up a sweet battery support out of some ziptie's and I didn't even have to stuff that stupid thing in my backpack, Ha.

As it turns out poorly designed battery trays are a really well know problem with the TE610's and I should have fixed it long before it chewed a hole in the damn battery. Time for one of those lightweight ones!

As it turns out poorly designed TE610's like all Huskys have lots of problems!

The battery tray was welded to the sub frame with 2 cheezy little welds that look like they had been broke through for a while. The broken welds left a couple of sharp edges for the battery to rest on instead of the tray and one side actually wore all the way through the plastic and into the battery.

It caused the whole damn bike to short out and we ended up chasing wires and checking fuses looking for a short till all that was left was the battery. After realizing that it wouldn't even spark with a screwdriver across the top we were pretty sure we had found the problem, Doh! Haha.

We wrapped up the battery leads, bump started it downhill and I was careful not to kill it riding her home. Now I want to Velcro in one of the small LiPro ones but may just remove the rear subframe and have it welded.

Thumb Like the new ride!

Did 112 miles today on the KLX. I think I'm in love It is so much smoother and quicker than the old XT.
The seat sucks and it is a little tall for me, but it is all fixable. Already ordered a skidplate. Haha
My range is 95 miles vs the 120 on the XT But I was heavy on the throttle until I reached the reserve.
Need to do some rejetting and eventually a suspension tune-up and I think it will be a keeper. Knowing I can take it up to a 351 is also reassuring. Once I get the stock tires replaced I will be ready to try it out on some local trails.

Lets ride!

Monti - as much as I made fun of the Husabergs (aka: dooseldorfs or husabrokes) I have to admit the weight of the new fe501 (http://www.husaberg.com/360-View.316...ash=7864e29149) seems a little awesome for 112kg (if that's correct and wet).

The one time I swapped with Tom I found it to be enjoyable and the power hit right away (unlike the smooth powerful bmw), but more like Dave's XR and way more terrifying.

Don't ask me why I was looking at a bike that I can't plate or ride much on road.
