Gotta fine tune the PC-V and Autotune a bit more
I think there is new info on this bike on ThumperTalk
I have an '07 TE510 and have slowly but surely been losing the functionality of all the lighting equipment. First the signals went, then the headlight and tail light. I fall down entirely too much and am thinking that I have probably knocked a wiring harness connection loose but I am wondering if anyone else had something like this happen to them. The 2 fuses under the seat test OK. Thanks.
I thought that all those wires on mine were awfully light and fragile. I cut off the rear signals and looking at the wires, I figured that I would have to run new ones. Not many wires and anything exposed to the air would corrode in a hurry.
If you crash a lot, check the wires. Cracked will cause corrosion and on light wire, corrosion = death.
I'm looking at the Husky, and wondering if your still happy with the Husky 510????
Looks like he's selling..........
Hey Dan, why ya selling?
Indeed, i'd like to know as well.
I ended up going with a KTM 500 EXC
The bike is well sorted out now. I did 600+ miles in 4 days around Utah in November and the bike ran flawlessly.
The issue I have w/ the bike is the narrow ratio gear box. The smaller ratio gears work great in the technical stuff, but not so well when things open up. I tend to do a lot of dual sporting and long 200-300 mile day rides and need the longer legs of a wide ratio gear box.
At 75 mph the Husky is running at approx. 6500-7000 rpm, while the equivalent wide ratio KTM is loping along at 3500-4000 rpm.
Simple as that.
Here the bike was fantastic:
Here not so much:
So long Husky fans. It's been a nice ride, but I've betrayed you and gone Orange.
Let the modding begin:
In the end I could not live with the vibrations and the short gear ratios. I also preferr the simplicity and reliablity of a carbed bike versus an EFI bike.
PS The Huskys are rocking the Dakar this year w/ the TE449 and Team Speed Brain.
Nice bike man...enjoy
Let us know the pros/cons of each bike after you get some miles on the KTM.
Hey Dan its Devin from Cincinnati just wanted to say hi . By the way thanks for the best day of ridding I've ever had at the R.M.A.R. nice KTM.
Great hearing from you Devin. Hope all is well.
Let me know next time you are headed this way.
I am looking at an 07' TE510. Any thoughts/likes/dislikes?
My new to me husky. Will likely be a dedicated ice bike.
I have a TXC450 studded up. The extra bit of power of the 510 would be nice with the heavy tires. I'll be using the power of my 510 to push a Timbersled this winter. Just need some free time, now.
has anyone ran lights on a TC510? im wondering how difficult it will be or will I need to buy a harness
