ceramic coating head pipes

Has anyone had their headpipe ceramic coated and if so what do you think? Is it worth the effort and would you remove the space tropper guards with this?

I've done it on my Triumph Daytona and liked the results. Am going to do it on my SM since I have the stock/ugly stainless headers. Still deciding on whether to go silver or blue.


Here's a pic of the Daytona in blue.

colored rad hoses?

So has anyone here found a maker of colored rad hoses yet? I see them for all bikes but the 610.

RE: jetting

NMHusky, I haven't even removed the smog crap. I guess I'm not picky enough. I haven't had any problems at all (except the little stutter at about 4k) and have had it up to nearly 13K in CO. It did fart a bit up there, but how often does one ride that high?

Rode the 610TE this weekend at Big Bear..

Milage off road sux! (Compared to my ol' DRZ400s with the CV carb - 55+ mpg) Is this normal with the pumper carb? On the street it's fine about 44 mpg and not a bad trade off concidering the power it has..

Other observations - jetting seems a bit off so I will probably need to rejet as you all suggest, and I had to shave some metal off the shifter lever to avoid it digging into the case. The bike is definately as good as the DRZ, probably better off road!

Looking like it really needs that 5 gal tho... and some work on the suspension.

Center Stand

Does anyone have a source for a center stand? I think the TE 610 comes with one in Europe, or is an option. Mine is a 2006 if it matters.

Finally brought her home. With a set of cycra handguards, a bash plate, and a set of SM wheels. This is the only other woman my wife would permit. This being my first dual sport, it was quite the change from my sportbike past...It's absolutely the most fun on two wheels, I've ever had. I never thought I'd get that w/o triplle digit knee dragging speed. I'm amazed however about how freakin tall it is. I'm 6'0 w/ 30" inseam and man, it's like getting on a horse! I guess I need to play w/ the preload a bit. The SM wheels haven't been mounted yet, I plan on sending them to the great woody wheels works to see if we can get a cush drive installed.

Good luck! I've asked this question many times, but to no avail. I've seen the attaching points and it's obvious what they are for. The EXC KTM's have the same thing, and there is a KTM shop in Ontario Canada that makes a steady business of importing the KTM centerstand from Austria, then selling them all over North America.

How about a 2000 610????

Can someone give me some of the ins and outs of an 00 610. I am going to take a look at one this weekend and I would like to know what to look for. I am going to try and give Sethro a call for some local help, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I don't think he got enough orders to produce them.

Had my name down with him, but that was the last I heard.

too bad, it looked like a good idea, easier tire changes & oil changes

Husky 450 TE

Glad to see a Husky tread, I have an 06 450 TE first Husky I have owned. Rode several back in the 70s even rode the automatic a friend had purchased from LA. I am really impressed with the Husky to date it has handled eveything I have asked it to do. Live in South AL. also ride in southern MS the bike is great. The only problem I have had is what I believe they call flame out. I h ave rode Honda's (4 and 2 strokes) Suzukies (RMX, MX) Pentons never had a bike to just turn off at low speeds like this one. I have gotten use to keeping the Rrrrs up in the tight stuff. It handles great and had been very dependable so far. Plan on getting back into the endro's but at 56 the wife thinks I am to old. Gald to be a Husky owner. Later.
