610 price

In socal, demand far outstrips supply, I think partly because even at full price, the TE is still a lot less than it's orange cousins. A $1000 off on a new 06 610 would be a steal out here. I paid full price for mine, but the dealer went through a lot of trouble to get the thing lowered for me. There are very few Husky discounts in Disneyland. You're situation may vary.

read a good bit of this thread. got all excited over the possibility of trying one out, then found out that once again, canada sucks.

Talked to all the local dealers (spread over 600km) and they all said they can't even get one, and even when they could, our lovely government would strip the signal lights out of the packages as they wernt dot certified.

Took some wind out of my sails. Rode a husky years and years ago, was hoping to do the same now. :(

(ps, been lurking the site for a short while now. Awesome resource, and great conversations!)

you don't need signals, are they still not offering the 610? I know for a fact the 250\450\510 are available, but I'm guessing you are looking for something more pavement friendly?

hey ruffus,

Yeah, they said they could get in the others, right up to the 510. But no te610 :( The bike (whatever it ends up being) is going to be used for commuting during the week, and weekend trips into the mountains. (well not INTO the mountains, but well you know) so week days = 99% street, weekends, probably 60/40.

Did you talk to Scott Rocher?? I noticed he managed to get an SM 610 last year?? didn't ask how, but it might be worth asking

It's the Enduro 2 and it does fit like it was made for the rack!

TE610 on the TAT

Just got back from putting 2700 miles on my Husky. Rode the TransAm trail from TN to Tulsa,OK and back to northeast TN on the tar. I LOVE this bike!! Put in several 400 mile days. A slightly leaky gas cap was the only problem. Dirt roads or tar twisties, it is a blast to ride! I have zero complaints. I even developed a method to keep my butt fairly happy on the narrow seat. A few pictures at www.imageevent.com/motogo1/tat if your interested.

Awesome photos, thanks for sharing them.
Now, we are going to need you to share the method for keeping the butt happy on the narrow seat.

Sure, just move around a bit. I slide over just a bit so my whole cheek rides on the flat part of the seat. Left, right, center, stand a bit when you can. In the dirt I move around quite a bit, so it isn't so bad. YBMMV

Im out in Calgary. I have seen a sm610 somewhat locally (edmonton). guess is should ask what the main differences are between the te610 and the sm?

Can i still fit a 5 gallon tank on a sm610?

The SM has less supension travel, different headlight and better brakes for the street. I don't see a reason why the big tank would not fit a 610SM.

Adjusting valves

Could someone point me to a tutorial or tips on adjusting the valves on the 610. I need to do it, and just don't have time to search. TIA

Moto G,
Nice to hear your retirement is being executed as planned and the bike is proving worthy . The pictures you posted are great and they've inspired me to post a few of my own from some recent rides. Please forgive that I'm in them, I don't have the still-life, Husk-art flare that you, Dirtbag and Husky123 have. Keep up your admirable retirement and be safe out there!
