Probably kind of, but not quite.

The 570 was the halfway model between the earlier model 610 series, and the current models.

The biggest problem you will have is fitting over the airbox on the right hand side. The angle is different and in a different location.

This is mostly to do with the location of the battery.

The 570 had no battery, whilst the 610-e had it beside the airfilter.

The 570 plastics are more similar to that of the current model 610's.

The reason why this works on the current model 610's is because the battery location is behind the rear shock, near the guard.

Probably the shopping list to acheive this would be:
- replace exhaust from 2 outs, to a single.
- relocate the battery to behind the rear shock
- replace airbox - from 2000 era, or 06 on era 610. (late 90's 610 may work also ??)
(Finding a rear subframe from an 06 onwards 610 would make this a lot easier)
... i think then you will be ok.





Dont replace the seat though, it is different at the front to suit the differnent tank.

Hope this helps,

David

Just happened to find this thread, I have been the happy owner of a 2003 TE610E since October of 03. I Glad to see a thread just for this era of the 610!

I am interested in some info on the timing chain, expected life and how to go about checking it. The newer TE610 has a lot of info on this but the tensioner is different than ours. Anybody got some advice on the TE610E timing chain?

Here's a pic of mine, complete with the large tank from Aus now in the real OZ (Kansas)

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

I have what is titled as a 2000 model. Photo below. During recent oil change and my first filter screen cleaning I could not locate the right side filter screen. The left side is of course a no brainer. I pulled the RH case off.
Surely you dont need to pull the clutch to get to the right side filter screen? And I dont see the screen under the clutch anyway. Do some have the RH screen and some don't? Thanks in advance for any help.

Nice bike. I can tell you that as regards the cam chain there is a WORLD of controversy on the subject. Some claim life, as measured by the adjuster position, as short as 2800 miles while others are at 15K and with half to two thirds adjustment used. Some swear by pitching the auto adjuster in place of a manual adjuster. And then there is the oil variable. ( did I say oil, I am sorry ) All I am trying to tell you here is do alot of research. And as is typical, service manual instructions are vauge and the type of adjuster used varies. Photo of the one from my 2000 mod. below. It is fully extended in photo. You remove the screw and retract to install. Then gently release.

Carb. boot to air claener box clamp

Anybody know where to get a stainless steel clamp to hold the carb. boot on to the air cleaner box? The factory one is aluminum and has stripped out. I was able to make a temp. fix by covering the calmp with heat shrink tubing but would like a new, mo better, clamp.

This clamp has a maximum opening of 5 1/2" diameter and a band width of 5/16"

Woohoo, glad this thread exits. I'm surprised I haven't found it sooner with all the searching I've been doing. I recently picked up a 2003 TE610e, I got it with only 600KMs on it (~375 miles). This was truly a garage queen Anyways, I've been desperately looking for one of these mythical 17 liter tanks. If anyone find anything, please let me know. I've sent an email to UpTite but haven't heard back yet. I love the bike so far and this thread has been great.

Fritz, for a SS clamp you should be able to check most boat supply places. I know when I was a commercial fisherman, we used SS clamps on everything and 5"+ was not uncommon. If you can't find one, shoot me a PM and I'll pick one up for ya.

It feels good that there are others out there with the exact same issues (aftermarket support ) as me!

Been following the thread. Bought a 2000 TE610E this evening.....It is in desperate need of new plastic! Has anyone tried upgrading to the new plastics with any success? I did see there was talk of it, but did anyone actually try it out? If so post a pic or 2!

EBay for stock used and NOS. Or you could find a graphic dude to make some custom design to cover up the old plastic.

New plastics aren't too expensive from the dealer. About $25 for each tank side and $50 for the front fender. You will have to purchase decals separately, but that will get you brand new stuff.
