Oil leaks? Cracks anywhere? Beside the usual?

Never owned a husky, but hear great things....it's either this or a DRZ400.

Is this husky a reliable machine?

Thanks!
As said above, the 610 is what a DRZ wishes it could be.

They are ultra-reliable (mine has just over 40k miles on it, and I don't baby it - click the link in my signature), as long as you understand that it's a big single, and as such even though it's counterbalanced, it's a bit vibey and things can randomly fall off from time to time if you don't check them. Blue Loctite is your friend for that.

Replacing the cam chain is a five hour process and isn't hard. You'll need a flywheel puller.

You get a lot of bike for the money with the Huskies, 06-07 are fairly sought-after, the carbed bikes make more power and have better range than the 08-up fi bikes (that I've ridden with).

DO IT.

I'm trying!
I found one about 9 hours away, one way, so, I'm trying to work it out....
there's also one posted in the flea market, a te510, but that's in Tucson, AZ and I'm in Atlanta....then I'd have to look into shipping....

A te510 and te 610 are 2 completely different bikes, the 510 is race bike with lights and the 610 is more of a dual sport like a drz or dr or klr.
The 510 has close range trans and the 610 is wide range.

This might be what you're looking for:

Clutch hub and disc housing fastening nut M18x1 61,7 Nm 6,3 Kgm 45.6 ft/lb
Clutch hub and disc pressure plate fastening screw M6x1 10 Nm 1 Kgm 7.2 ft/lb

I think I copied these from a whole list of nut, bolt , and torques in

Seat anchor pin fix

My search engine words are not finding a couple of posts I read quite a while back on replacing the seat anchor pin with a better locking mechanism.

Thanks.

I had frequent flier miles for the plane. The asking price was low enough that I ended up with it in my driveway for about the same as I'd have hoped to pay locally, including shipping it and everything for the trip, down to coffee at the airport. Got lucky for once.

On the other hand, the repairs, preventive fixes and upgrades have added up. I've tracked every penny I've put into it, and looked at the numbers again recently as I was going over financials. Ouch. I have to keep it until it can't be rebuilt anymore.
