    This is my first time doing , took me two nights to have everything a part. Nothing too difficult. You just need the fly wheel puller and a gear jammer.

    Don't need no manual, follow this

    Hall's Cycle, Cam chain is 60 bucks. Add another 30-40 for gaskets and washers.

    Same for me. The cam chain replacement took about 8 hours +/- 'cause I was going slow. The clutch basket is easy to access, but you may need a local service guy to do the riveting and spring retainer installaltion.

    There is a link to a repair manual somewhere in this string. A word search may turn it up. If no, send me a PM with an e-mail address as I may have a .pdf copy somewhere on my PC.

    I did the clutch in my garage and only needed a hand when punching the rivets. It was easy.

    Where can you get a replacement side stand . One of my buds 09 610's stand broke .
    A slightly longer one would be better too .

    Also i am getting uneven front breaking . Most noticeable controlling the bike on slow downhills . Pads still have a bit of meet on them so thinking the disc must be warped ?

    Had an 01', loved it, then rode a buddy's 05', had to have one, so I bid on an 06' through ebay, won it, lovin' it ever since...the 06' is truly an amazing machine.
    I love to race it in the mountains, and take it on forest service roads for fun, and haul gear on long trips to Arkansas, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. It's my "lifer" bike.
    So, this 610 will be my exploration bike and keeping up with my buddies on their KTMs :evil

    Sounds like its time to change the brake fluid. It should be done at least every 12 months.

    Got my TE yesterday. Started tearing into it today. The thing was filthy with oil mess and what appeared to be some black mold. I think the garage it was stored in had moisture problems. The exhaust valve cover seems to be leaking, I'm hoping from just the screw holes. Checked the cct tensioner, its at 6 notches. Valves are super loose at .005. Will set them tomorrow. Also going to tear down and clean/regrease head bearings and rear suspension bearings. As I'm going through it, I'm taking apart every connector I come to to clean and apply dielectric grease.

    I've got oil filter coming and also chain and sprockets.

    Does anyone run Shell Rotella T6 Synthetic 5W-40 in their TE? I run that oil in everything, and even though the TE calls for 10-60 I was planning on running the Shell in it as well.

    Do any of the other model Husky footpegs fit the TE?


    Does anyone know what the disconnected plug under the seat is for? It does not appear to have a match anywhere. I will try and get a pic tomorrow.

    Check the spring cup washers on the clutch [​IMG] they get beat up. [​IMG][​IMG] PM Indy Unlimited on here and he well sell you some better than OE ones. You'll need to call Hall's for the rivets. Under seat?? Could be the tip over sensor wire, but only comes on the SM version

    What ends up being called a "warped rotor" is usually uneven deposit of brake pad material on the rotor, not an actual mechanical deformation of the rotor due to thermal stresses. Even if it is a measurable runout condition, you'll need measuring equipment, not eyeballs, to detect it. On an off-road bike, you might hit something and bend the rotor enough to see it. That would be a "bent rotor".

    As long as you're planning to replace it anyway, you might try straightening this one. Just grab it with a crescent wrench and very carefully bend it back into position. If you can get it to 0.004" or less on a dial indicator with no "kinks", it should brake smoothly.

    Loose valves are a sure sign of follower roller wear, they're about $36 to replace them, dig in there and check it out. Look for rocker shaft bushing wear too, the shaft wears on one side, you can flip the shafts to get some more life out of them.

    The bike only has 3000 miles on it. I can't see them wearing that fast. I'm going to set valves and will recheck in 1000-1500 miles. I'm almost wondering if someone didn't "set them loose" earlier in its life.

    I've seen them wear that fast, they'll be fully wasted by 7,000 miles.

    Thats not good. I went ahead and set them all to .002. Will check them in about 1-1.5k miles. If they've moved, I'll get parts ordered. Thanks for the heads up. Are they a bitch to change?

    Ok, does anyone else's spark plug boot not seem to fit down low engough on the plug? It snaps onto the plug, but the boot is just barely in the counterbore hole. Definitly not all the way down to seal the hole.

    Does anyone have a picture of proper clutch cable routing? This cable has been routed wrong at some point, don't know where it's suppose to go.
    thanks
