I changed the rear to a 46 from a 45 - not much change but I wanted to run an Ironman steel sprocket instead of the aluminum OEM one. I have always thought that aluminum sprockets on a dirt bike lead to rapid wear.

I wish I had wear on the rear sprocket instead of the secondary shaft splines. I'm still on the OEM rear sprocket with over 10k miles.

Most of us have changed one or the other sprockets, factory gearing seems high for the dirt. I went to a 48t rear from the 45t. Some others have gone to a 14t countershaft sprocket from the 15, this results in about the same ratio either way you go. Some have done both to get it even lower but this seems too low for the limited road use I do.

mate with the O2 sensor in the bike runs in a road legal mode when u remove the sensor and they remap your fuel injection the bike runs in a mode for off road or compertion only as in its technically illegal to ride it on trhe road in australia same as a carby bike when you derestrict the air cleaner and pipe .

I spoke to my dealer about this a year ago and he said it wouldnt make much difference.
Whats your experience? Is it worth locating another dealer (Ive moved and now have 1 000 km to them) to get it remapped?

Did you replace the sensor with a resistor?

Off topic:
Its illegal to ride with dirt on the license plate here since a couple of years. Its not illegal to ride with mud on the headlight though...

I just bought a 07 TE 610, and this bike is fantastic!!!

My question for the knowledge bank here is how close is the clearance between the front wheel and exhaust under full compression? The previous owner had installed a Leo Vince titanium exhaust system (pipes and muffler) and wrapped the pipes to deal with the heat. After one ride where I caught a few feet of air a couple of times I noticed a spot where the tire chewed through the wrapping on the pipe right at the bend coming out of the head. The wrapping is about 1/8 in thickness.

Any Ideas???


***Edit***

Metzler Karoo 90/90 21

Thought Pictures might help.





**Edit #2**

PO had bike setup for Supermoto and installed Leo Vience full Titanium pipe. Full Ti pipe and 21" wheel like to kiss when front end is fully compressed. Now I got something else to figure out, have the pipe reworked or work a trade for a stock pipe.

You using knobbies? Could be caused by a new tire perhaps?

I have gone to a 14/48. You can keep the same chain and the ratio's are IMO just right for NE woods with the exception of the tightest, steepest rock gardens (wish it were lower) and any extended asphalt (wish it were higher).

Anybody know where the emissions sticker is on a 06 husky 610? I am looking to buy one out of state and will need to enter the twilight zone of registering it in California.
Without that sticker saying its okay, I'm doomed!

I have pipe wrap but only where the pipe straighten out, not on the curved part of the pipe. It keeps the pants from melting. The wrap goes from the front pipe guard pictured all the way back to the slip-on.

On my 08, if the seat is removed, there is an emission sticker visible on top of the rear fender. Cannot say for sure if it's same for 06.

I would remove that wrap from the front pipe - it doesn't really protect anything and will just collect muck.
PS. Put a skid plate on that thing before something bad happens!

Hey, this looks just like mine.
I did the same, because my rear heat shield cracked at the rear mount from vibration. The wrap does a fair job and looks better in my opinion.
