TE-610 Skidplate "work of art"

I just got off the phone with George at http://www.uptiteracing.com
discussing the CCT and other Husky info.
I wanted to make sure you guys were aware he made a really nice Skidplate for us and we should show the man our gratitude and support. He is a dedicated Husky Dealer and is there for us.
And without further ado:
Georges website is currently getting upgraded. Here is his number:714-540-2920

The hell with the skid plate, where is that beautiful lake? If I had to guess, it's Tahoe. Really though, the skid plate is beautiful. If I go with the '08 TE610E in the spring, rest assured, my bike will have this "work of art."

Uptite is also a wealth of interesting technical advice. I have Uptite's exhaust guard on the way and will be ordering his skidplate shortly.

He said "the chain could go till you had 4 clicks left" that is one more than the manual suggests. "he has had bikes go 30,000 before needing a new camchain...he suggests good oil, specifically Spectro(not sure which type) helps minimize wear on chain and bearing, and another contributor to camchain wear is, hard - on and off, on the throttle. Sprockets aren't necessarily replaced when the chain is worn.. the cush hub was not needed as the cush clutch was performing well." He is also "considering making some wheels for the Husky, but it will be a while..."

I am curious what Larryboy's CCT will show as he's been using his bike with prejudice ...

Dan

p.s.
for my part I have used what I hope is good oil and while not babying the bike, I also, have not thrashed it, especially on the road. The more of us that check the CCT the better overall guage we should get...wish I had checked mine when new and more often, but I am sure it's going to be a non issue for us...

The Y is for the smaller bikes, there were issues with the stock piece on the 450 and 510's...
