Okay... back from the dead again. Since my last post, my bike was stolen and recovered the same week. Morons didnt even cut the chain round the back wheel. HA

My newest question is if any of yah have modded your airboxes? I haven't submerged it yet, but I'm sure I'll find plenty of streams green laning this spring. Technically speaking, couldnt you just run a plastic/rubber snorkel up higher around the radiators (kinda like the 4wd'ers do) and mount some sort of filter in line? The empty air box could make a sneaky spot to hide some tools too!

Yup, the air box needs help. What were the engineer thinking? Mine is a 2000 and the box has an intake just above the peg!!!

Bike looks good. As soon as I got it I tore it down and checked the valves and cam chain. Valves were way out at +.013" clearance. Chain and tensionner Ok. I will get that photo for you next week.
Here's pics:

As you can see, It will need some cleanning up:

I dunno... that thing looks pretty clean to me. How does it compare to the XRL now that you have the valves in check?

Not sure yet on the carb tweaks - mine still isnt quite right. I have an appointment with HMR Racing outside London to dial in the suspension, and I'm gonna have them tweak the carb for me too, or they actually sell a hopped up race carb for a few hundy.

I'll get back later next week or early the week after with what they do...

Been asked that several times.
I have been working on a compairson story with photos regarding the XRL and Te.
Basically, if you were to buy a new XRL and spend the difference in cost between the two bikes in upgrades, and you were an average rider, you would be better off with the Honda. For the simple reasons of ease of maintenance and parts availability. No doubt the Husky is a steller bike. And there is no compaiarson in the style/coolness department.

Maint example:
Valve adj. Honda, tank off, remover valve adjuster caps and timming mark caps, adj. away. worst case new O rings on caps.
Husky valve adj: Tank off, radiators off, valve covers off. Worst case gaskets, possible hoses, and coolant.

But I am louven this Husky!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well sir, I finally got around to shooting some photos of the sub frame in my 2000 Te610e. Here ya go!:

Brake side, black tape over rack bolt holes:

Ah-ha! Thanks! I don't have that entire section that the top plate bolts on to. I don't believe the exhaust mounting locations are the same either. I'll need to buy a used 2000+ tail or have something welded up.

I'll get some pics this weekend too - installed a TechnoFlex rear shock (the orig was actually cracked ) and the 17l tank! I still need to install the GPS (anyone have an extra RAM handlebar mount?), higher bend bars, full-on bark busters and some sort of wind screen....

Oh, and nice truck BYW. That's exactly what I'm going to own when I move back to the states - another OLDER TE610e (heck, I already have all the trick parts) and a new F150!

Thanks for the kind words regarding my F-150.
This one has the higest GVW Ford offers in the F-150 .
Whats cool too is Ford puts a huge sway bar in the FX4's.
This truck corners like a car.
Check this photo out. A Harley and a Moto Guzzi in the bed, the rear suspension is barley loaded.

Airbox mods

The only problem I've had on my 2003 TE610E is in deep-ish water. The air box design has two very low intakes. The lowest intakes allow water in fairly shallow crossings and the bike stalls. The good news is that the bike stalls very quickly before sucking a gutfull of water into the cylinder.

My first solution was to gaffer tape the lower intakes which worked really well but signicantly affected fuel economy and probably performance.

Later I cut one hole in the airbox (see photo originally from Tony T who used 2 holes) and sealed up the lowest intake near the footpeg with a rubber insert.


http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo...eat=directlink


It's not sealed so tight that water can't get out. The intake at the leading edge of the airbox can also be a problem but I tend to leave that one open. Tape it up for a wet weekend.

Hi All

Am a new 2000 TE610E SM rideras of about 2 weeks. An absolute hoot and more potent that I was expecting coming from a road rider background.
I have a couple of issues that I am takling and one is shabby bodywork. Am seriously thinking of new side panels and rear fender...I really quite like the look of the SMR570 side panels and rear fender anyone know if they fit the TE610E subframe (they look pretty close)

Thanks in advance, it seems Husky advice is quite rare so I appreciate any help.

Cheers
