What I took that converstion to mean is he will race the smaller bike in the other desert races but will (might) ironman the 610 in the Baja 1000 in preparation for multi-day rallys. BTW that's not Mike's bike.
But what do I know? I'm from warshintone

Officially on board

Hey, just throwing my hat into the ring.

Found a new 2008 in Oregon with the help of an inmate.

Deal has been struck, so I'll be counting the days until the delivery of the new bike.

There is a power-up kit from Husky that is a Leo Vince pipe, chip, and airbox. The dealer is putting it on the bike & tuning it before shipping. Total cost for the option was $350 installed.

Also got an Uptite skid plate for it.

I'll be looking at other upgrades and would welcome anyone's input on the following:

Headlight
Bars
Handguards
Seat
Tail rack
Pegs

Thanks, I'm looking forward to joining the H family.

Thanks Geek! That would be great.

And congrats! You're gonna have a blast.

Am I correct in assuming the chip contains a different ignition map? I also assume that's a can only from the price. What about the O2 sensor?

I miswrote. Sorry.

Most bikes that I've put an aftermarket kit on, have come with an airbox or air filter modification. That apparently is NOT the case with the TE610, and it was through my assumption that I got that notion.

There is no airbox mod or replacement with the powerup kit. It's a Leo Vince pipe, aftermarket chip for new fuel maps, and maybe (don't know) an O2 sensor bypass. Still for a mere 350 bones it seems like a decent deal.

Timing Chain

My theory that the DID timing chain is prematurely stretching has led me to the Tsubaki chain.

I emailed Dustin at A.P.E. and asked him if he could get a Tsubaki chain for the TE610. They use the Tsubaki chain in some racing applications. His reply was that he could not get one from his supplier, but that Tsubaki did make one for the 610. He gave me a part number of BF05MA-100. When I saw the part number I thought it might be wrong because of the dash 100 (it should be 122, no?). After some searching I came across this nice little PDF. If you look at the Husqvarna applications you will see that for a 95 and up 610 the part number is BF05MA-100. If the BF05MA is correct then all we have to do is find one of the many other BF05MA applications listed and find one that ends in a dash 122.

The following applications use the BF05MA-122; Honda VF1000FF,F2F '84-'85 BF05MA 122, Suzuki GSX750T,ET,EX '80-'82 BF05MA 122, Suzuki GSX750SZ Katana '82 BF05MA 122, Suzuki GSX750ES,EF '80-'89 BF05MA 122, Suzuki GSX1100F-J,K '88-'89 BF05MA 122, Suzuki GSX1100F-L T/M T '90-'96 BF05MA 122, Suzuki GSX-R1100G,H,J '86-'88 BF05MA 122, Suzuki GSX-R1100K '89 BF05MA 122, Suzuki GSX-R1100L,M,N '90/92 BF05MA 122.

Now all we have to do is confirm that the 06-08 TE 610 uses the same timing chain as the 96 and up 610 (except for the length, 100 versus 122).

So my question is, who wants to be a test rat and order one of these chains and compare it to the stock DID? I would, but I am only 6 clicks out on my CCT. If no one else volunteers I will order both in the future and take back the one I don't want.

Thanks,

Oro D

Why 122 and not 100? If it is the stock chain on the above suzuki's it should be easy to find.

Unless my memory fails me (definite possibility), the stock timing chain is 122 links.

From DID, it appears that most years used 100 links ('91 to '04). Unforunately, they don't have an updated list. You could email them since it is OE on the Husky. They should be able to confirm the links.

The type of terrain in which I feel the 610 really shines.

Don't Know if you are the type who drops or lays down your bike occasionally, but if you are get collapsable mirrors. My mirror mounts no longer work because I did'nt.

The motor in the current 610 is the same as all the TE-e (electric start)
I don't know why the chain would not be the same as the 01-04 models
i.e: 100 links
