    I'm really stoked about a Rekluse for the 610. I'm getting one. I can't stand the clutch pull as is, and I like having "all hands on deck" when wheelie-ing.

    Plus, Rekluse's are made in my home state. Way to go Idaho.

    please post up your experiences with it. I've been drooling for an auto for a LONG time. And my clutch is slipping a little bit and I'm pretty sure adjusting it would be a complete waste of time

    ie that's my rationalization :norton:

    Rekluse Z-Start Pro is nice on my 2006 TE450. Never thought to look to see if it would fit my 2007 TE610 or not. On the 450 you need more space under the clutch cover. Either use a replacement cover (mine is from 7602) or a gasket shaped spacer. Do not know if the 610 needs the same.

    The 08-09 TE6109 has a one piece clutch/oil filter/oil pump cover, and didn't require a spacer. Here's a photo of mine. Also commuted to work a couple times last week. VERY nice to just leave the clutch lever out as you stop for lights and such. Also makes practicing your balance (try not to put feed down on an 18mi. commute) much easier.:D

    Hey stolenfant, what tank is that? It looks like it fits an FI model? I have a 2008 610 and I really want a larger tank for the TAT. If you could fill me in that would be great.

    Thanks.

    That's the same tank that I have -- the 6.6gal Safari tank. Fits both the 610 and the 630. Works just fine with my Scotts sub-mount steering stabilizer. Nice piece of kit. :thumb

    Very expensive :cry

    Don't ferget he got's a Rekluse in there too. Bastard!:deal

    I think Huzar's still got a regular clutch, but only because he has been traveling around Europe so much and hasn't had the time to add the only farkle that bike ain't got yet.

    Man, I really gotta get me a more betterer job.:cry

    Hey Marcin, (or anyone) can you see the fuel level in the White Safari like you can in natural?

    Wouldn't know -- mine's red.

    In other news, looks like shipping the TE610 over to South America for two months is still an option, so I'm going to have to hold off on the Rekluse for now. I got a quote for $1900 from Vancouver to Lima, air freight, one way.

    I did order a set of the Indy Unlimited clutch spring cups, and I think I'll have time for Tasky's to do some work on the bike before I crate her. I'll bring a spare water temp sensor and a spare set of wheel bearings. If Tasky's doesn't get around to doing the timing chain and chain follower rollers, I'll bring them with me and do them in SA. Plus a couple of spare, extended clutch cables.

    Last I'd heard, you and West Marine had parted ways...

    Sorta kinda, I took a leave. Now I'm back, but Thinking real hard about Baja :)

    Where are you gonna get your clutch pressed back together? I have those cups I need to install too. Does the Rekluse use the stock basket? Mine's lurching again so I think I've probably trashed a second one.

    If my girlfriend weren't in South America on her bike right now, I too would be looking at a month in Baja :deal

    Looking at the writeup on cafehusky that StolenFant posted, looks like the Rekluse is using the stock clutch basket.

    I'd love to get the easy clutch pull of the Rekluse, but for now larryboy thinks if I replace the clutch spring cups plus the clutch bushing, it will make the clutch pull more manageable.

    ADV's Indy Unlimited, Dan, did mine, fast, very reasonable. He makes the washers too if you don't have the harder ones. He also said Barnett cable had the least friction, but nothing else lightens the feel. Admittedly all I ever tried was three cups, and didn't notice any improvement in feel.

    Thanks I'll probably just send the cups back to him and have him do it. I haven;t ridden in like two months, If I had half a brain I woulda already done it :)

    :cry Hello Everyone --- I'm new to this even though I have been reviewing and checking out all the good information you have to offer for all of us cool 2006' Husky TE610 owners. Well I am starting off with a dilemma. Not trying to be a drama person but have a beautiful bike with a fresh motor: rings, upper gaskets, timing chain, tensioner. Pretty much a new clean sealer upper end, well riding it back in late September a San Diego Cop pulled me over at night with no tail light plus out of date registration of one month. (Police Suck) They impounded the bike which I had to get registration and sticker. The impound was a huge joke of an amount $1450, well I didn't have that kind of money so had the shop that sold me the bike float me the money to get it out with the order that I pay them back in two months. The two month is up and I paid them $300 but still owe $1150 to recover the bike. In order to make this arrangement they wanted the title and sign an agreement that if I didn't pay by said date they would keep it. Well December 25th is the date and I can't come up with all the cash. It sickens me that the very shop that sold me the bike and all the add-ons will possibly be getting it back for pennies on the dollar and it is in perfect condition. Well does anyone out there have a heart for a fellow rider in need. I have been on a streak of back luck with employment and collecting money I have due to me. Hopefully someone can help me out till I get the $$ together and don't lose my pride and joy. Please get back to me for December 25th is next week and I'm getting pretty damn nervous. Contact information for me is dantnicholas@gmail.com or 619.846.0870. I try to post a picture. Thank you everyone.......:cry
