Congrats on the bike, but your post is worthless without pics!!!!

I will post pics when I get her all prettied up....

Actually I know where to get new plastics, what I was asking is if anyone accomplished updating the 00-04 610 E to the new style plastics, like the 570 or even the new 05 610.

Thanks for the welcome!

Has anyone in here updated their stock gauge cluster to something like one of the Trailtech ones? I'm wondering how doable it would be. It would be nice to have one that's not in kilometers, and the digital readout would be a bonus. So, anyone? :)

Can anyone tell me what kind of carb my 03 would have? I see the early ones have the Dellorto, do the later (03-04) ones have the same carb? I need to tear mine down for a complete clean and rejet, so if you know of instructions, that would be awesome too. Also, how do you check the valves and cam chain? I'm a complete newb to this stuff (but definitely not to turning a wrench). My bike has basically sat for the last 6-7 years (~375 miles in that time) so it really could use a good once over. Any helps is much appreciated.

Go to Halls web site and down load a parts manual for your bike. Look in Husqvarna parts and select your year bike. Heres the link:

https://www.halls-cycles.com/Catalog...Husqvarna.aspx

Halls sez Husky did not import in 2003 so you may actually have an 02.
The VIN number should give some info as to year of manufacture.

Valve clearnace setting is pretty straight forward but the clearance to set is a little vauge. I had three different tolerances for my bike, an 2000, in owners/service manuals. I used the tolerance on the emmisions sticker under the seat. You need to remove the radiators and overflow bottle to get to the valve covers. It looks daunting but is quite EZ. A good quality 1/4" socket set is a must.

The cam chain is a hotly debated topic. Do some research and decide for your self. I would recomenmd leaving the OEM auto tensioner in place and monitor the oil and filter screens for presents of metal. The presents of metal may indicate the cam chain is wearing the oil reed valve.

Photo of 2000 model with Dellorto carb:


If you have a Dellorto, here;s the place to get parts: http://www.mgcycle.com/index.php?cPa...b1834f25337282
Some mid 90's Moto Guzzi's use the same carb. I can give you a good set for a Dellorto if you need it, send PM.

My bike was imported (I've got the import papers from the original owner). So yes, Husky didn't import in 03, but there were still a few bikes that got imported by private parties. I was told there's 38 03s in the US, don't know how true that is.

Thanks for the other info.

Year '00 TE610 upgrades

Hey, haven't posted for a while.

Bikes been stripped down over the winter (salty roads + magnesium engine casing = horrible corrosion) to get some work done and I thought I'd let you all know what is in progress.

I've got the 577cc TE610, kick-start only so have gone with the following:
  1. Vapour blast + polished cases, barrel and head
  2. Anodised black rear swing arm, linkages, triples, bash plate, leavers, brush guard mounts
  3. Large capacity tank (couldn't believe I got it for 34 off ebay) resprayed + replica decals
  4. Custom Alloy engine mounts
  5. 102mm KTM high comp piston with custom steel liner
  6. Custom race camshaft
  7. Talon billet clutch basket + up rated springs
  8. New cam chain
  9. Keihin FCR41
  10. Drilled out standard airbox

It's taking a while to come together but it should finally be back in one piece end Feb at which point it'll be Dyno'd and of course I'll get some pics up!!

There's some things I want to get done but they'll have to wait until it's back together!!

Anyone know of a better headlamp that fits the stock plastics?

I'm glad this thread is around because most of the others only cover the later models!!

Man, youre going to have a screaming bike when finished!
It will not fit the stock plastic without mods, but the Buell Ulysses dual head light works and looks good on that bike. Cost is about $114 USD. It is a solid OEM style light and fairly EZ to fab mounts for.

I actually like the stock UFO headlight that came on my 2000 610 kicker, once I replaced the crappy 20 watt bulbs with 37 watt Osram narrow spots. Maybe the Euro madels had different lights though?

No I got it from a breaker off a '94 (he said), don't think he really knew the value of it as I've seen these (Acerbis) go for well over 100 ($160). It needs work but I quite enjoy getting the spray paints out. The only PITA is getting decals, I refuse to pay the 100 Huskysport want for the two sides so I've taken photo's of my original ones and photoshopping them so a local graphics place can print them onto vinyl for 40 the pair! Shortly I'll probably be selling some OEM looking shroud graphics on ebay as it makes sense to get a batch made up!?

Well I hope so. The guy usually works on Husabergs but knows what he's talking about. 625cc and he's also saying we should now change the valves \ sizes for flowed ones...I guess while he's in there!? Having said that I don't have bottomless pockets!!
Really hope the bottom end can handle the extra power!! I'm also hoping to get 60hp+ atrw when it dyno's.

Got any pictures of the Buell headlight fitted to the Husky??

Hmmm, I do like the look of it but I rode a CRM250 with one and the lamps were loose and the connections were flaky. I'm also looking for something that will pass the UK MOT test, which I don't believe the UFO will!?

Cheers, I managed to find another pic. It looks alright and I bet it lights the road up a treat but will the stock stator power it and everything else?

Just picked up a Beringer 4pot caliper for 64... really got to stop spending money!!
