    What are some recommended mufflers these days? Hard to find a Leo Vince X3 (hard to find lots of things really)
    Anyone tried GPR?

    Hi all of you!

    I'm Kjelly, 26 years old and i live in Belgium.
    I spend some time reading through this topic as a non member and now decided to become one. Seems to me that there are some experts here! Hope that i learn some stuff! I've been ridin for some years now. Started on a 750 intruder(sold it after a year. Couldn't get used to the lack of ground clearance, bad brakes,...) then wen't to a kawasaki zr7. I now drive a gsxr 750 srad en have recently bought a supermoto! A Husky te610. Papers say a 2000 model.

    I still have some questions (in order to figure out some small details) so i think this is the place to ask them?!

    I have begun with the teardown and need some advice concerning the engine. Is it really a 2000 engine? (So that i order the right parts). Personally i think that i have a 97/98 engine.. seems really clean though! Valves are like new. The new gaskets seem to show that the engine was pulled apart recently.

    Thanks in advance!

    Kjelly

    Does anyone have iBeat software (plug and CD) they'd be willing to part with? (or lend me :thumbup)


    Also, kickstand broke. Where is a good place this side of the pond to get one?

    I'm guessing some of you in here are using the Barnett clutch cable. I'm thinking of finally installing mine today. Anything in particular that I need to watch out for?

    Make sure to sufficiently lubricate the upper cable end barrel where it attaches to the lever. They tend to "stick" and don't rotate when the lever is pulled, which puts stress on the cable.

    I put a Barnett cable on the TE and it never smoothened out. I tried letting it break in naturally, then using cable lube, then straighten out the top and bottom routes. No dice, it was always 'notchy.'

    So I ordered a standard Motion Pro and it's smooth as silk. I'd like another inch or two of length, it's just barely long enough with my bar risers.

    I'd be curious to know your opinion of how the 525EXC compared to the TE610....

    Thanks for the tips, fellas. Stupid question, here: I'm looking at the end that attaches at the clutch lever. Is this round "cylinder" thing supposed to go inside the lock nut assembly by the lever? Or in front of it?

    I've been using Cannon Racecraft for years. Excellent springs.

    The "cylinder" at the end of the cable goes inside the cylindrical recess on the clutch lever itself. You will have to rotate the locking knobs so that the slot lines up and you can place the cable in properly.

    Tip: remove the lever (remove the pivot bolt) so that the lever can dangle freely and allow you to fit the cable easily. Once you have everything connected, both at top and bottom of cable, then place the lever back into position and reinsert the pivot bolt.

    Also...The last owner turned the air box into swiss cheese. Would anyone have a spare stock unit ?

    Thanks.

    Undo the wrap and there should be standoffs for the screws to bolt into.
    I would leave that Swiss cheese cover as is and run it as you'll get better breathing that way. For some dumb reason the factory chose to put the hole at the lowest point rather than the highest point. You're not gaining anything but appearances with an original cover. However, check Bills, Halls or Motosport for a new one if you're dead set on a new one. Save that one for someone that wants a clean cut opened up cover!

    Hazaar :) Checking in: I just picked up a peach of a Husky 610SM 2008 plate FI model...best part...265 miles from new! Dry stored after the first month and has sat ever since....it's basically a new bike and not even broken in...that's nuts 20170813_134111.jpg

    I'll be tinkering around with it tomorrow so any tips for a bike that has been stored since 2009 will be greatly appreciated :)

    If you dont mind me asking, what did you pick it up for ? I got this 09 610SM with 2300 miles for $4200. Not too bad, i think ?

    Quick question if anybody can help. My new toy (2008 610ie) seems very low, I'm wondering if the previous owner had a lowering kit installed.

    I am 187cm (6`2ish) an can flat foot this bad boy with bent knees...it feels tiny...which is no bad thing but I am wondering if anyone can point me to info on identifying if it has been?

    it looks like I can relocate the shock to a different mounting location but am not sure yet :)

    They're fairly tall bikes. (Of course I'm only 5'9") Check to see if it has a Kouba lowering link, which you'll want to replace if you plan on hitting any big whoops or g-outs. If a PO lowered it right, it can be undone as well, but you'll have to get into the shock.
