    My TE250 is for sale up at Taskys in Everett.

    Got a super sweet deal on a Xchallenge, and I am obliged to adhere to a one-bike-in, one-bike-out policy...:cry

    I'll have a TE again someday!

    Sorry if this is 205. I just saw on the Husky site that the '08 is not street legal. WTF? Only the 610 is still street legal. So I guess I gotta find an '06 or '07.

    That was a bit confusing. They only list the 610 as Dual Sport, and call the others Enduro. Also, I was not able to spot the blinkers on the pics of the TE250. Now I see the page where it says "DOT Legal". Damn, they used to make a big point of it being street legal. Now no mention of it in the description. Huh.

    Yup. But you can still buy my '06 if you want to. :D

    Really wishing I'd had THE TE250 in the silt of the Millican Plateau instead of my Xchallenge. All my initial reasons behind buying the TE were correct. Wish I could keep it. :cry

    OK, I guess it's confusing now, since they don't have the giant banner page like they did in '06:D
    The pics are Euro versions without the blinkers, etc.

    I doubt they would go backwards, since KTM copied them and made *their* bikes street legal (no 250 though).

    Best place for Husky info

    Hey Guys...

    :clap Dropping a hello to this cool forum from Singapore! I just got my 2005 Husky TE250 Converted to a Motard Setup and will be bringing down to track, just would like to check if there are lowering springs available for front and back online? This bike beats my DRZ400SM hands down on weight and torque even though its just a 250...(stock vs stock) :freaky

    My TE in some shoal pits in PA. Just got it buttoned back up with the 300 kit. Now my clutch line is weeping out of the metal to hose crimp down by the slave before the 90 degree turn.:becca :baldy Besides the assorted problems the bike is great.:D

    Hey, we have our own thread, how about that! Me and my '07 TE250, out and about last spring. Over the summer I had my suspension lowered and revalved by LT Racing, and it rides even better now. :clap

    Planning to sell off my R1150GS and get myself one of these. All my mates are advising me not to but I just dont enjoy the GS. Riding on the GS in India is a PITA, I know the TE is no tourer but seems like will be great fun on the dirt and easier than the GS in this maddening traffic...and I get some extra cash from the GS sale to repair my W124 :D.

    I think its a 2008, will be checking it out in a few hours. Any thing specific to look out for? I'll be doing the services on my own as no Husky dealers here.

    Update - I guess its a 2007, brembo calipers, aftermarket ignition switch, '37' etched on the carb. 240 mm rear rotor. Its got amazing power and throttle response but rattles like F&$@, is that normal or I should be worried? The bike has done a genuine 3000 kms.

    Howdy everyone. Looking into getting a Husky to replace the old XR.

    What are the maintenance intervals for the TE250? How does it handle cruising on the highway (60-70mph max)?

    Trying to decide between the 250/310 and the 610...

    If you want 55mph +hwy cruising the 250 is not for you.

    I've got one of each. The 250 is an awesome trail bike that just happens to be street legal. The 610 is a true dual purpose bike. I can take it on almost all of the trails that the 250 goes on if I take it easy. Once the terrain opens up the 610 is magic. The handling is very similar to the 250's. It's obviously heavier by 40 lbs or so. If you like nasty trails the 250 is better. If you have more open trails and need to be on the road you can't beat the 610.
