I love dry stuff, especially this time of the year when us west coasters are constantly doing laundry because our riding gear is caked in mud and slime.

Dirtbag, are there any maps available that show these trails? Or can you recomend a dealer or shop nearby that can direct us to these? I smell a roadtrip coming up!! Keep the pics coming!!!!!!!

Awesome pics, from a fellow Idahoan. Born and raised in Twin Falls County!

Have you explored Hidden Valley area near Glenns Ferry?

I just picked up my new 610SM. Got that 4200rpm stutter. Did yours have that and how'd you fix?

I'm actually not sure. These little roads don't show on my GPS. I just happened to find this one going down into the canyon and I kept wondering who maintains it way out in the middle of nowhere. I just point the bike toward the mountains and ride around til I find interesting stuff. I can share my GPS tracks and you can open them up in Google Earth.

I bought my 610 at Mototech here in Boise, ID. I think they do have some people who get together and ride. I need to get back in there and meet some peeps myself.

Not yet but it's on my list.

I made it from Boise to Grandview going through the desert and I can fuel up in Grandview and keep going I suppose. There's not much after Grandview though and I mean nothing. But you know that. :) My father's family used to own a station way out there called Grasmere.

My TE doesn't have a stutter that I'm aware of. This is my first thumper though so perhaps I'm just not aware enough.

No stutter on my TE610 either.

Has all your pollution stuff fallen off?

Yes pollution stuff was taken off. NOt completely sure it was routed the proper way but I'm going to try the iridium spark plug fix before anything first. That way I know it's the problem.

Another Husky owner here, I bought a TC450 as an engagment present for my fiancee. We went riding a couple of weeks ago she let me ride it for the better part of the day and I could not believe how well the bike handled. It did take a bit to get used to but I liked it so much that I bought another TC450 for myself. Right now it is in the shop getting a light kit, speedo and kickstand installed. I pick it up next weekend, I can't wait.

Just wondering....anyone in this thread in Flagstaff AZ, I am very interested in a 610 Husky, and I was wanting just to take a look at one and see if physically I am interested in them. Found a couple, but they are a distance and I want to know if I really want one before I make that trip. Thanks

JD JET Kit

I played with my Jetting allot and could never quite get it, Had to lower my needle all the way and then went down a couple of main jet sizes, down two on the pilot to get it to run without sputtering down low on tight trails, but was lean on top.
I bought the JD Jet kit after emailing them and did it according to his instructions for the 510, 42 pilot, 180 main, His custom red needle ( 4000-8000ft) new leak jet , It is fantastic, more power everywhere, Idles better and gets better mpg. Best $80 bucks spent so far
Just my results
Love the bike

Michelangelo, is your bike an '06? I know a lot of people have written that the plug helps, but the problem appears to be in the ignition mapping. The plug would just make it less noticable. Talking with Loyal at Moto Tech, they beleive it was fixed in the '07 model. They have filled out warrenty cards on the '06 610's they have sold, and I've asked them to investige the use of the '07 mapping on the '06, assuming it is fixed.

It doesn't bother me as I tend to not ride at that RPM much, but I do notice it.
