    I bought my R/R from a bike breaker in Edmonton. It was actually for some kind of side by side that blew the motor or stolen with only about 30 hrs for about $20. All the part numbers matched up exactly. I mounted mine in a similar location to Bob just used adel clamps instead of steel tywrap. I think the problem with the stock regulator is how it deals with the excess voltage (converted to heat) running at max., best described in Bobs thread.

    That's both ends of the 3 yellow wire connector that are part of the harness. I ended up cutting all of these off, and replacing with new connectors, but you can clearly see the heat cycle damage. Hard insulation, discolored, and close to burnt.

    With any of these, resistance build up would be high enough to cause poor connection, no recharging, battery drain, and likely set myself on fire at some point.

    I have yet to do another test ride, but hopefully this week.

    Check your wires!!

    Is it normal on my 610 '09 I can't use the 6th gear under 80 kmh? Stock sprockets, just changed along with the chain of course... and about this, the old ones only had 13000km :(

    Can't use 6th as in "it has no pulling power" or that you cannot physically shift into 6th? If the latter, then there is an issue.

    822A9413-6389-407D-9BFE-2382F3F92182.jpeg This 610 is now Maryland re-inspection ready as the final part (chain guard arrived on Saturday from Hall’s) is in place. Also had to replace front tire, brake/tag light, and add back side deflectors. I replaced all of the blinkers with some numbers from Baja Designs. With a new grease zerk, also from Halls, was able to add some much needed grease to the back pivot point... kind of scary how much it took. Back tire gets replaced this weekend. Will be nice to finally get this thing registered and on some trails. Hope you all had a great weekend.

    No problem to shift into 6th luckily, it's just that under 80 kmh there's not enough pulling power and the bike is jerking (sorry can't find maybe the right translation!)

    Understood. I went to a 47 tooth rear, if I recall correctly, and it's been a much better overall drive ratio.

    +1, I like 15:47 for dual sport, and for off road duty, I’ll just slap a 14 on the front.

    ^ I would agree with Hensley. 6th gear is best above 100 km/h.

    I can imagine the 47 sprocket is much better, but with the 45 at 100 kmh I'm already at 4400 rpm, with the 47 would be around 5000? Maybe too much for long highway transfers

    Last ride was with a friend on a 630, that engine works completely different, much closer to the Ajp PR7 one. I tried offroad so no idea if you can stay under 80kmh in 6th, with the Ajp PR7 absolutely was, and it was the "racing" type I had the chance to ride. For the kind of use I do, a 630 engine on my 610 would be great (the 630 is too low and soft, suspension talking, but the double exhaust is way less noisy that mine, which is a stock one).

    I believe the AJP PR7 uses the exact same 600cc engine as the TE630, so it would make sense that they felt similar. The PR7 (and the SWM SuperDual models) are very nice continuations of the old Italian Husqvarnas. I hope they do well here in the United States :thumb

    I just brought my '03 TE610E back to life, after a 3 year slumber. I bought the bike new in '04 and have always fought with a fuel siphoning issue on the Dell'Orto carb. Friend found a used carb at a swap meet, We gave it an ultrasonic cleaning and swapped the jetting and needle over..... all good! The old 610E is just slighty more street biased than the later 610, but a great bike.

    Glad that CafeHusky is still going. I never would have met up with other Husky owners to do my Baja trip 10 years ago without it.

Been a while since I have posted but shamefully it’s been a long while since I have been able to ride. The bike didn’t skip a beat. Handled superbly in some pretty gnarly stuff. Subframe stayed intact and the bike felt great on the single track.

    Have been thinking about replacing ‘07 (had since new) with a 701 or 500 but the 701 has suspect handling and the 500, odd 5th gear and $$$ to get it to run “right”. People hate carbs but I threw a $100 jd kit in the te610 when new and never looked back.
