Agreed. This "catch all" TE-610 thread is difficult to follow. We should just start a new thread for each component e.g.: "TE-610 Bars", "TE-610 Tires" etc.

+2

easier to find specific info using the Search function without having to look through >1,400 posts!

along these lines I posted some suspension info and bumped an older thread entitled "TE610 springs".

Rear spring mods?

Levity:
Did you go with a different rear spring or just concentrate on the front forks?

We have tried to do that with the Index, but we can't eliminate discussions on the general thread. It would be nice to point people to the Index or to search for threads and then do follow ups that way but even within those threads there is going to be a certain amount of Hijack ...I mean you guys should follow the LC4 crowd around , they even post nude photos to totally derail a topic

Question Honda oil and how much is too much

Hi List

They had a promotion on Honda oil here in Australia so I thought I would give it a go - best oil in my Honda so far.

I am sure we have talked about this before, but whenever I get my bike serviced, it comes back with more oil in it than recommended in the manual. How much more is too much do you think and what are the consequences of too much oil in a Husky?

Thanks

Adam

My Husky dealer here just puts a synth blend of 10-40 in the 610s and doesn't bother with 20-60 or whatever it is the manual calls for. At first I was concerned but he doesn't seem to think it's a big deal. OK then.

So whaddya think? It's time to change my oil. Should I just use my Honda stuff?

The shock spring on my '07 with 2k miles seems about right for my 175 lb bag of bones.
Setting the preload gave 1" static sag and 3.5" race sag. Might try softening it up a bit now that the forks are dialed in.
I left the high and low comp clickers fully open as recommended in the manual.

FYI - Xfool says the stock spring on his bike is rated as 6.4 Kg/cm (post #11 of the 610 spring thread).

I got my Renazco seat in the mail today!!! Upgraded to the suede top by James to make up for a snafu in the stitching on the first cover they made for me. Took a little longer than I expected, but I'm thrilled with how it turned out!!!







The seat is 1.5 inches taller and I can still flat foot the bike with my legs straight now.
I've got a plan to get rid of the quarter turn seat latch, it has never worked that well.

Larry,

The seat looks great! Red matches up very well against the tank.

As long as as I don't get butt scabs like the stock seat gave me I'll be happy.
