Hi Justin

I;ve never replaced the two O rings on my oil filter and cover.and have done dozens of changes
It could be to much oil OR
Are you sure you put the seals back on?
I know its a dumb question but it happened to me on my first change.

Well I solved the oil leak and here is something interesting:
I had heard that the 610 was the only 08 husky that wasn't getting fuel injection and that is why it wasn't released with all the other models here in Aussie, but looks like that is wrong and it is FI... wonder if there are any new trick bits that may be retro-fittable to an '07?

Ray, I had put the filter in the right way round to start with and then went to look in the manual for torque settings for the cover screws. At which point I noticed that the manual showed the filter the other way round... so I went and flipped it, and then the problem started... So eventually (after trying everything else!)I got suspicious of the manuals diagram and rang a Husky mechanic and he said I had it right the first time (which really was the logical way anyhow) and that the manual is inacurate. Sure enough no probs, except... there was a little paint from the exterior of the cover which had run around to the machined surface and broken away when I had removed/refitted the filter cover, I scraped this off as this would of been enough to cause a leak as well I think. PITA!
Have you picked up the new KLX450 yet mate? I could here some braaapbrraaaaappp sounds coming from over your way last night?

kouba link

Well I ordered a Kouba Link to lower the suspension on the Husky and it has turned up... but in the meantime I have gotten used to the height and the only time it is a drama is getting on the bike or restarting on a hill (I am going to fit a bum tanbk as well which may make throwing a leg over harder??), so considering that the link needs me to do a bit of abrasive surgery to fit it, I am considering not fitting it and just playing with suspension settings and dropping the forks a little in the tripples... The bike just rides so well as is I don't want to mess with it. I need to get it up to the suspension tuner in Perth and see what he can sort out before I fit the link, I think.

Picking it up at 4.30 today,the Braaaaaap sounds are from the guys over the back they have a full size mx track on their 50 acres,the noise travels up the valley and I'm always getting accused of disturbing the peace.There are often up to 10 bikes over there and they make a hell of a racket when the wind is blowing in my direction,even though they are on the other side of the hill and about 2.5 kms away.

Good alternative for day rides, but what happens when you got camping gear?

IMS tank is the same total capacity, and also comes with the added bonus of offering radiator protection.

IMHO the IMS makes the bike look like the Exxon Valdez, the bum tank is easily removable and can stil have a duffle strapped on top. I have just ordered Dirt Bags Ranger panniers and brackets and a Wolfman enduro tank bag, between those and a duffle leashed on the bum tank with tent and sleep pad in it and I will be right as rain. Plus the IMS is way more expensive and semi permanent, so if I am just hacking around the bush for the arvo I would have to have that big branch catcher slowing me down... I am sure it is great for some, but doesnt work for me.

Unaware you could strap anything to the Nomad tank - let us know how the install goes and post up some pics

Man it is sweet looking isn't it... it looks kinda lighter than the carb model... I think it is just because of that black plastic



I am super happy with my TE610 so wont be in any hurry to trade up
