    You can drill out the pop rivets and disassemble the muffler.
    You know, to clean out debris or remove burned up catalyst and stuff like that.

    I need help my husky startred losing spark after 10min of riding the tacho needle starts going all over the place its poping stalling backfiring,the rpm drop to 500 then go back to 5000 then fall to 2000 its jumping all over the place when I give it throttle,and eventually it dies I let it cool off for 30min runs fine then same problem,I am assuming it is ignition coil,I cleaned the carb and put fresh fuel in 100octane.Does anyone have any other ideas other than coil?

    Have you checked the throttle cable for binding, hanging up on something, or stretching?
    It runs down between the tank and triple clamp.
    It routes like this:

    How does husky handle bigger distance rides I am planing to go on a ride this weekeend atleast 300km in a day,my only concern is that I have dirt tires on it,I have 15/42 gear ratio so it is good for cruise speeds,what are your toughts guys?

    I'd say you are geared a little high at 2.8:1, but you can downshift and run in 5th into the wind or up a hill.
    OEM is 14 x 45 or 3.21:1.
    The seat will be an issue.
    I hope your bar height is comfortable for standing on the pegs.

    Depends on your weight, your load, and the terrain.
    Lugging the engine at low RPM with high gearing puts a lot of stress on the drive line.
    IMHO, yes, gear down. 15 x 47 would be good for the highway.
    You really need lower for off road. But again IMHO.

    I have a spare 13 tooth front sprocket can I put that on so I have 13/42 would that be ok.

    That's 3.23:1 and close to stock. You will be able to cruise at 70 mph at around 4500 RPM with that setup.
    But, it's always better for chain and sprocket life to run the largest sprockets that yield the desired reduction.
    More teeth to absorb the wear and the chain doesn't bend as sharply around a larger sprocket.

    Hey guys,

    A big pat on the back for keeping this thread alive. :beer

    I have some doubts about my jetting. It seemed to work fine before, maybe a tiny bit on the rich side (which IMO is better than lean), but after cylinder honing, new piston and rings it seems to be very rich. I barely need any choke to start the bike and it smokes a bit for a few seconds when cold. Also, the spark plug is dark and the fuel consumption's through the roof. Finally, it idles quite weak and stalls every now and again at a traffic light.

    Any ideas on why this is happening after installing new piston and rings? Cause everything else is the same as before (everything more or less stock except for the sporty aftermarket 2into1 exhaust system). I figured it could be the extra friction in the system due to new components, but now I'm 400km into the break-in and no improvement. Another idea is that the compression has increased drastically with the new top end and sucks a whole lot more of the mixture, but I'm not sure... :2cry

    Maybe you could share what jetting you are on and your usual altitude? I'm riding not more than a couple hundred meters above sea level and my Dellorto set-up is: slide - 50/3, needle - K32/3, idle jet - 50, main jet - 180, atomizer - AB260, pump jet - 30. :D

    Was the exhaust on before you rebuilt it?

    Yes, and I have. And it worked fine until the rebuild.

    The two into one exhaust may be more restrictive than the OEM dual exhaust.
    That would explain the sudden rich condition.
    At the end of the day, the two into one may turn out to be better for low end power.

    Hey everyone I have an 07 TE 610 and I am going to be doing an 8 day endurance event with 600 mile days and I am wondering if anyone has experience with adding oil capacity to help deal with the heat and such?
