Question Year 2000 era Husqvarna TE-610 Info Thread

Hello,

The Husky TE-610 deserves more than 1 bloated thread, so let's try to dig up and organize some info on the older models. Most of the threads here were started after 06 when the model got a refresh, so its been hard to find info on the 2000 era Huskies. The index thread and the big Husky 610 sign in thread, google, ebay, etc. didnt answer many of my questions.... and I was hoping the good folks here on ADVrider could help me out.

I recently acquired a bone stock 2000 TE-610 with only 5kmi in excellent++ shape. I know the 610 is no BRP when it comes to aftermarket farkles, but I'm having trouble finding much of anything.

What years are the 2000's sharing parts with?
Is the engine the same from 99 through 07?
Where can I find a larger gas tank?
What are some easy uncorking mods?
Where can I find more generic parts like hand guards, pegs, skid plates, etc.?

What about some "How To's"?
Adjusting + Replacing cam-chain?
Post thrashing tear down maintenance (swingarm bearing greasing, stearing head bearing greasing, etc. etc.)?
General Maintenance tips & tricks?

Anything else would be spec-freakin-tactular!

Here's a couple places you can check for parts

eBay Store - billsmcplus: HUSQVARNA PARTS: HUSQVARNA TC250 FRAME ASSEMBLY 2004 MODEL, HUSQVARNA WR360 CRANKSHAFT 1999 MODEL

eBay Store - Fugi's Factory: HUSQVARNA DIRTBIKE PARTS: HUSQVARNA 250 450 510 TC TE REAR BREMBO MASTER CYLINDER

Also you can try calling Uptite. George knows most things Husky.
Also Halls is a good source for Husky parts along with Motoxotica.


Sorry I can't help you more
A good site to check out & ask questions is

Cafe Husky


Along with the Husky forum of TT

I think the big difference is between the off road only, competition version of the engine and the dual sport version. The off road only version uses a reed valve only for oil "pressure", has a very minimalist filtration system, no counterbalancer and is kick start only. The dual sport version has two oil pumps, an oil filtration system designed to cope with street riding and longer service intervals, e-start, counterbalancer, lower compression and perhaps a more mild cam. The current generation TE610 has only been available in dual sport trim as the TE510 took over open class off road competition duties. The current gen TE engine has several revisions (different carb, I think more compression and different cam, not sure what else) but as far as I know all major castings and hard parts are the same.

Anyway, this is all from memory, I'm not an expert on these bikes and some of this may not be 100% accurate but at least its a start:)

Thanks BP. Good to know. Glad that I have the dual sport version with e-start and the larger oil capacity/pumps. I believe they made that change in 99.

I was able to find this from the fellas over at TT - manual and parts PDFs:

Wishfull thinking - Will a rekluse auto clutch from an 06 fit on an 00?????

Great thread

I've also been looking for data on the older models.

Is your 2000 TE-610 a six speed?

Thanks for the info BikePilot, good stuff, and looking at the TT link now, thanks guys.

edit: looks to have a 6 speed tranny from looking at the pdf, tks What kind of RPM's are you at when riding at 60, 70mph?

I believe the TE610 has been six speed since its inception, at the least for quite a long time anyway:)

Here are some old test. Aparently they came with the oversized tanks in Oz. They're quite rare in the states, but I've seen a few on ebayuk over the years.

The Big question is if your 610 has electric start.

There were a number of variants of the 610 during the years 1999 to around 2003/4.
These were:
TE-610 - Enduro
TC-610 - Motocross
TE-570 - Enduro
TE-610e - Trail/Enduro
There were also some Motard versions of these bikes.

The 610 that was in production up until 1999/2000 changed to being a TE570. That is, was the engine of the 610, but with the plastics and look of the other models of its time. These plastics are similar to what is in current production.

The 610e (with electric start) was the basic chasis and plastics of the 98/99 model bikes, but with an e-start motor. Apart from some minor changes this engine is what is cuurntly in production. These bikes were built during huskies 'dark years' and kind of used up spare parts and tooling from the late 90's.

So the 570 was the hybrid of the Old motor, and the New looks.

Some of the 610's of the 98/99 era was toned back a bit and had conventional front forks, while the TC610 and TE570 had USD.

If you have an E model 610 (2000-2004) which is what i have, you will find that most 'cosmetic' parts fit from the 98-99 models, whilst all motor parts will be as per current.

I have made a number of changes to my 610, and most of these have been to earier model parts:
- Mufflers - 98 model - no Cat
- Suspension - 99 model
etc.

The Chasis effectivly has never had any major changes, and remains the same as what was in production for most of the 90's (if not before)

Hope this helps

You will also find a lot of inconsistance with bike specs during this time.

Some things that seems to vary include Forks, Graphics etc.

This bike appears to be an earlier model plastics, but with e-start from a later model?



I've spoken with husky dealers, and even they dissagree on what model is what.

Here are some E-Start 610's in the Dakar.

WOW! Awesome info/pics. Thanks!

I honestly wasnt 100% sure if the bike I bought was in fact the te610e (with the true dual sport tuned motor). Well now I'm sure. I'm on an 00 TE610E with 5kmi and I believe the original tires. Total garage queen . I'm still going to check every single nut and bolt though just to be safe and start to figure out what to carry on bike for tools.

Anyone here live near London that have a garage and would want to help me do a little wrenching? Beer & chow is on me!

huskyfatman - great articles. I'm going to print and frame those bad boys...haha. Funny, those larger tanks on the AU bikes dont look all that much bigger. I honestly dont know what mine has on it. Its a UK original, so maybe I'll get lucky (but I doubt it).

Quick question for yah - Are you truely a huskyfatman? I'm tipping the scales around 235 lbs these days. Although I'm working on that (kindof), I'd be interested in hearing the best way to firm up the forks for bigger fellas. The articles you linked both say the stockers are on the soft side to begin with. Many thanks in advance.

husky610e - awesome, that model/year layout & description is exactly what we needed! Those Dakar pics are the best swedish porn I've seen in a while . I wonder if Africa Queens or anyone else still has the molds or specs for those Dakar fairings. I think a round baja style headlight in one of those would be the ticket.

To my eyes, the engine looks identical from 00 to present (for the TE610E obviously). I'm REEEAAALLLY tempted to try and stuff a Rekluse in it. Any other engine mods to safely (and cheaply) add a few ponies and uncork from stock? I think you mentioned 99 cans. Carb upgrades or even replacements? What about adding a snorkle or something to the air box? I hear they are on the shallow side, not that I plan on submarining it for a while anyways.

Keep it commin fellas!!!
