    Picked up these babies but not sure if ill have to replace the bearings and spacers on both wheels?
    Maybe just the spacers between the bearings? Couldnt find out even though its been asked previously.

    Anyone have sm front brake/caliper would want to sell or trade for te + $ ?

    Edit: After speaking with Dan at Motoxotica, I found out they should bolt right up.

    Fellas my mates 08 610 broke down last nt . Just stopped like it rang out of petrol .

    Went and got trailer and upon return it fired up and ran fine again.

    Bike often sits a month between rides not on charger so thinking battery may be cactus ?

    Any other things i should check over ?

    Got a descent ride coming up and don't want bike failing miles from no where .

    They are starting to age the newest 610's are 4 years old now, this thread will naturally turn from a "new bike" to a "how to fix" thread.

    I'm looking to change the rear wheel on my 610 to a cush. Not really interested in this turning into a debate about whether that's necessary. I'm convinced it will be worth it in the long term, at least enough to spend my money, not yours, on it.

    I've priced out RAD hubs, and they have been a site supporter at times.

    I also discovered Haan hubs, which may be lighter, stronger and mo betta. They are made in Holland from 6082, which is the new 6061. Similar material breakdown and cost, but about 10-15% better mechanical properties across the board. They use Excel rims, which is obviously good. Pro Circuit recently started distributing them, but the flat-hatted mouth breather I talked with at their HQ on the phone today told me if it's not on their web site, please GFM.

    Anyone have any experience with Haan hubs? Know if they make the TE610 application?

    Battery test on 610 that died .

    Battery read over 13v on multimeter , while idling over 14v and when reved to 3000 rpm droped to about 13.5v.

    I know f all about this so googling as i go . From what i read drop in volts = bad battery , stator or rectifier ????

    Mmm where to next .

    They have an excellent reputation overhere, but we might be biased since they are Dutch :wink:
    Here's the 2011 catalogue (the 2012 is on their site, but for some reason does not include their wheels). As you can see, for other brands they have hubs with cush drive, but for husqvarna they don't list them. On the other hand, the Husqvarna Speedbrain team uses Haan wheels, so perhaps they have added them.
    You can always drop them a message at sales@haanwheels.com

    Check the battery terminals, make sure they are tight. If it cranks and the other electronics seem to work, may not be a battery. Do you hear the fuel pump prime when you switch the key?

    GFM??
    If you haven't, I'd pick Woodys brain. Before the Husky specific RAD hubs, he was adapting a cush hub for them. Whether it was a RAD or not I don't know. Then there is the Husky cush from around 2001+-.
    I would like to get one too. But$$$ and I don't do many asphalt miles.
    Good luck-

    Won't a rear wheel from a 2000 model 610 fit? The 2000 to 2003's for sure had cush rear drive hubs.

    They will fit. I have been trying to come across one for 3 years or so. I checked into buying the hub only from Husky, but the assembly is NLA and one of the main parts (can't remember which one) was too.
    On top of that there is a difference in spoke angle, between the cush and standard hub.

    Edit, I'm not so sure the axle size is the same. I have converted standard pre 03 hubs by changing bearings seals and spacers.

    Terminals good - fuel pump primes and bike cranks ok .

    Just called my local dealer to get price on regulator and rectifier ..not sure how to test but might be worth replacing .

    I use them on my YZ250. I have them moving the bars almost entirely forward, not up (RC High bars). It was a matter of safety for me to get the bars forward, as I'm 6'4" and was whisky throttling constantly until I put them on, then pretty much never with them.

    Don't need them on the 610. Moved the footpegs back and flipped the bar mounts forward, good to go. I'm running a CR bend bar, because it was actually closer to the stock bend than the "Husqvarna" bend. Google "te610 foot peg" and the first result is my writeup on another site.

    I have had a fleabay search set up for many, many months and no hits. I checked with Halls. The '00-05 hub is available, but the cush rubbers are on backorder and the sprocket carrier is NLA. Would for sure be adaptable if you could find one, as some of the bearings are the same part number.

    I called Haan in the Netherlands this morning, and they don't support the TE610 with a cush.

    Will be doing RAD, probably with an Ironman and Michelin Desert Race.

    Post up the details once you have them. Something I've been contemplating doing to mine as well.

    I got the 2 inch risers. I'm 6'3" and run Pivot Pegz without adjustments. I like them a lot (except the price), cause you have alot of freedom to adjust just bars.

    I don't think I have properly introduced myself here yet.

    The name is Vincent, 35 years old from Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Riding my TE now for 2 years and I have been using this topic as a reference. So much info here :clap

    I'll only chime in when I can add something meaningful, so my contributions will be limited. Plus, I'm not a native English speaker, so bear with me.

    The stock flasher on my '07 610 broke at the little pins. Doesn't appear to be a very robust design, so I thought I'd replace it with one that has 1/4" spade terminals.

    Picked up a generic 2-terminal 12 V flasher at auto parts store, but now the signals come on, but don't flash on/off. I can hear the flasher click once, but that's it.

    Is there some special flasher I need to use? I'm not running LEDs, just the stock signal lights. I have the "B" terminal wired to the hot lead (red/green), and the "L" terminal to the load (blue/black).

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    It sounds like the lights don't draw enough current to operate the relay coil and you need a flasher with a lower amp rating.
