Found it. It was under seat on rear fender. Or at least part of it was. The PO had stuck some adhesive on it to hold a little tool bag. Not much left of it.
I'm hoping to bring the bike north, hence the need for the sticker. Perhaps someone with a US version of a 2010 TE could tell me if the bike is classified as a "motorcycle" or as "restricted use vehicle"?
That will be on the sticker...
If someone could even PM me with a photo that would be really appreciated.

Thanks for the help.

Replacing my fork seals...anybody have a good write up on how to do it on these forks? Anybody know how much (volume) oil to put back in (other than measuring the air gap)?

Thanks

Fixing Fork seals

I recommend you go to the Rocky MTn ATV site, they have a video on these single cartridge forks and it explains everything in detail. After I watched it, I ordered some tools that was needed and now I feel like I can do all my fork seals with great knowlegde. Go for it.

I'll second that. Vids are great. I have done both the Husky forks and my Yammie forks on my Dakar from those vids. Good company to get parts from also- fast shipping.

Thx for that. Still need to know vehicle classification though.
I'll post up a pic of a badge from a KTM later tonight with what I'm looking for on the husky.

Here is a sticker from a KTM 640A showing vehicle type: MC
(Motorcycle)
I'd like to know if the TE has an MC classification or an RUV sticker.
(Restricted Use Vehicle)

Notice "MC" on the bottom sticker:



Another image from a different angle:



Thanks again.

Got to play a little on my new-to-me '09....

Power wheelies in 3rd already... Interested to see what the PU kit does next week....

Hope to lower a little so I can actually take it on some single track-ish stuff. It's 38.75" with the aftemaket seat shits ridicules. Not much desert in lower Alabama.

Keep us notified on how the Pu kit chages things. I have decided to go against the PU kit and just went with the JD EDI. Once I was able to get through and figure out the changes, I can say that the power is so much more controlled. No more WILD wheelies after the surge. I ride up in the mountains so I can say that TOO much power can be a handful.

I don't think it "needs" a lot more power, I was hoping for a little more bottom end and smoother power really.

It's already too fast for Alabama single-single track. I take my XR250/300 there. But anything where I actually use all the gears, the TE will go
