    Not sure I'm still torn between the Uptight and the Leo Vince. Performance wise anyone know has these compare. Its hard to pass up the Leo at that price with the Uptite at $400.00. BTW sounds like George is done with Husqvarna moving on to Gas Gas according to the rumor mill

    I'd buy the full Leo system if I went that direction. My stock midpipe cracked and blew out. Leo doesn't sell the mid-pipe alone, I asked them, it might be a good move to just get the Leo slip-on to make it easy to add the rest of it later.

    Not suprised George dropped Husky, or vice versa. Sportsman Cycle out here went from years of KTM/Husaberg and Husky to Beta and Gas Gas. Sounds like some BMW shops are picking up the Husky line.:baldy

    My local BMW Dealer South Sound BMW picked up Husky early after the merger, and then dropped them last year because they were sick of getting the run-around from Husky and no dealer support wrt to parts and warranty.

    Kinda sad when they can't even keep the mother-ship faithful happy.

    Husky sold 23% fewer bikes last year. Less than 10,000, and that was after giving away TE630s for around $5k

    I love my BMW K12S, but they don't know jack about offroad bikes. Step 1 was to sissify the dirt lineup, step 2 was to swap in their own dirt bikes in place of the previous Husky. Several magazines panned the new model big time, declaring the previous models quite superior.

    BMW have apparently rolled out street versions of the Husky to try to shore sales up. Watch Husky become a streetbike brand over the next few years - BMW's good at street bikes.

    I'm hiding and watching, but there is no new Husky I would buy right now.

    Hey, BMW - get it together!

    Do you have examples of the $5000 TE630 giveaway? The cheapest I heard of was around $6500.

    He'll still do what he can but no new parts from Husky so that's a problem if you need work done and he needs to get parts, although he still has a few tricks up his sleeve, best talk to him, then you'll know. He still will make and sell his own aftermarket stuff and might start making stuff for all brands. Again... best talk to him. He's takin' a blow but he's far from out......

    Do you mean cam follower bearings on the rocker arms or the camshaft bearings? I had one of the follower bearings go out on my 03 TE610E, it has the same top end, basically the same engine as the TE610 I believe.
    How many miles do you have on them and what oil have you been running out of curiosity?

    Husqvarna Market Share and HMNA Retail Sales Up in 2011

    Husqvarna Market Share and HMNA Retail Sales Up in 2011
    The trend continues as sales and market share continue to rise in 2012

    Corona, CA - February 7, 2012 - Despite enduring a tough economic climate in the past few years, Husqvarna Motorcycles North America (HMNA) is proud to report that 2011 was a landmark year. HMNA managed to set an all-time sales record under BMW care for the 2011 calendar year (achieved by the middle of November). Husqvarna is also proud to announce a worldwide market share gain from December 2008 to December 2011, from 1.09% to nearly 2%*.


    "The U.S. market was definitely a bright spot on Husqvarna's global scope in 2011," said HMNA President Kris Odwarka. "Our retail registrations were up over 60% for 2011, and additionally, in our relevant segments of off-road and dual-purpose, we increased by 66%."


    The HMNA dealer network also saw a very positive change last year, and national dealership locations increased by over 20% in 2011.

    Anyone got a TCI Sequoia or Denali rack for a TE-610 they want to sell? I thought I had one used from a guy selling a TE and I was going to buy the rack separately from him, but the future owner decided he wanted it. :baldy:

    Needing to pick this up pretty quick for an upcoming trip. Don't really need the soft luggage, but if the price is right, I'll take it too.

    I just found these and didn't realize they had these side racks for the Pro Moto Billet Rack. I actually already have the Pro Moto Billet top rack on my bike as it came that way, so if someone has the side racks they aren't using and want to sell, that would work too.

    Im back in SoCal again, sorta..Ca.
    Anyone have an idea what the total 'safe' amp draw should be on the TE610. The lights Im putting on are going to draw about 10 amps total I believe. That's 3 LED lights and one HID light. Plus I'll be adding an GPS..
    Am I going to melt down? ;]
