I have been wondering the same thing. Surely somebody must be a muffler expert around here and can chime in on that question...

I wonder if capping the second pipe at the split with a temporary fix would be a way to test the idea? I have the Leo slip-ons, and these cans are generic thumper cans. They sure look like each one can handle the full exhaust flow.

When cold starting the bike, you pull that lever. The manual calls it the "starting device."

Fast idle? Enrichener? Dunno, but my bike starts right up on cold start when I use it.

Te 310 2009 model

Hi Guys,
Maybe you can help with some input.
Got chance of the 310 te '09.
Have heard good and bad, mostly from unreliable sources. It will be used for tracks and trails, nothing competetive. Looking to have a step up from my xr 250 with perhaps a bit more power low end ?
Any advice appreciated.
Thanks.

I'm baffled by the lever. I've never seen a fuel injected machine that requires user input to raise the idle for the first few minutes until warm. That is what the freakin' fuel computer is for. I've had six bikes with FI and none of them required anything other than a push of the button before riding away. Maybe there is no water temp sensor input to the ECU so it doesn't know when it is warmed up? Haven't looked at the wiring diagram yet.

I've already got two 1oz spoke weights, and another ounce glued on the rim. Helped a lot -- the bike used to get a bad head shake above 50. Now it is more like 65...

Yes. HDB supplies the tap with their kit.

From what I've heard, the lever just lets more air in just before the throttle body. Essentially, it's like giving it a little throttle while you start it up.

I have never had to hold that lever for longer than it takes to just start the bike. I don't have to sit there and hold it until the bike is warm.

How did you make that determination? Did you dismantle it to determine if the cat has started to come apart?
Did you remove it from the bike and shake it to determine if you have anything loose inside?

photos?

Pretty common with Husqvarna. My TE510 had the same mechanism although it was located right on the fuel injection system and not as convenient of location as the 630. Not sure why you would worry about such a thing.

I've found it valuable on cold starts if you run your idle speed lower than the recommended 1650 RPM.

Must be an Italian thing... both my wife's Ducati's had the same "enrichener" lever on their FI systems.

That's the second time I've heard Italian associated with this bike. Isn't Husqvarna Swedish?

Not for many years.

No... 100% pure Italian but some Swedish heritage lingers.

The thing rattles like hell, buzzes and clatters (which noise depends on which RPM's I'm at.) I also get poor gas mileage, which supports the idea that it's likely the cat that's toast. It doesn't really matter if it's the cat, per se, or something else in there...the bottom line is that the right can needs to be replaced.

It won't be the source of the poor mileage, the bike doesn't need both pipes to run right.

When the cat goes bad how does it contribute to poor mileage?

Have you removed the can and peered inside it yet with a bright light yet to determine what you see? both ends?

What does the cat look like when you do this?
