The R2 is a great bike and had it come in the 450cc version it would be in my garage as we speak., but as it is it is way too underpowered for me. I'm 210 lbs and live at 5500ft and do all my riding between 7000 & 12000 feet. They say that you looks 3% of your HP for every 1000ft of elevation.

So I start off with 16.5% less power and work my way down to 36% less horse power. The R2 has approximately 25.2 HP to begin w/. This means I would be riding w/ a 15 HP bike. I might as well walk!

I read that the R2 feels just a bit weaker than a DRZ400, which is what I once had and got rid of cause it was gutless. Don't get me wrong the DRZ or in my case the KLX400 was one of the best bikes I have ever had, but it just lacked power.

Don't know and don't plan to find out anytime soon. Although if these single digit temps continue I might just have to.

My 08 TE510 has served me well. With over 7600 miles and still not requiring a valve lash adjustment.

Thinking about picking up a new 2010 TE510 soon also.

I've added some of the items you will be in the near future:
Arrow Exhaust and power-up kit
Zumo GPS
Cycra hand guards
3 gl tank with factory side panels
TE610 rear rack
Acerbis aux fuel tank
Up-Tite Skid plate and exhaust heat shield
Roc stompa pegs
Electro sport LED blinkers
Baja Designs LED tail light

IIRC the WR250R is about the same weight as the XR650R too Totally different category of machine from the TE510

We recently had in an 08 Husky TE250 that had a completely dead battery and we managed to kickstart that. Doesn't work with no battery though, a colleague found out the hard way

Would the rack and tank also fit an 310?

Thanks

I think if you look under the rear fender of your new bike you will see what it looks like. It is the same on all Husky TEs regardless of the engine size (250-610). You can also review the parts manual on Hall's site which includes a schematic.

I just have plastic and the two lateral rails of the frame.

To run the rack you have you need to use the sub-frame off the TE610 that runs under the fender and allows you to install the ProMoto Billet rack or the OEM 610 rack.

That's what I was referring to.

All you should need is part #16 to mount the rack
