I wonder if they ever changed the gear ratios from the original Italian Husky that the motor came from? It was a fairly close ratio transmission for a street legal bike.
Can't beat the price for a street legal D/S w/ KYB susp to boot
As far as I know they are the same.
That's WR250 area. They may be low balling it then pack in a grand or so in fees or dumping them with no support. I didn't see SWM in their listing of brands.
Doesn’t look bad......at that price point I’ll bet folks will give them a try. Tempting?
The huskys that motor was originally used in sucked as a DS, it was a CR tranny.
Husky couldn't give 'em away ether.
My riding buddy had a TE610 and rode the shit out of it. It was a darn good motorcycle. He also had a TE310 that was even better. SWM is coming out with a RS300 that is similar with what I would say is better suspended.
I think mega bang for the buck factor.
The TE610 was a great bike so was the 310 depending on what generation motor was in it. I hope SWMs take off over here, choices are always good. The SWM 6XX series is the one that will have a big impact over here if it takes off, by that I mean some aftermarket support and decent parts supply. I have no doubt DS riders will buy the bike if it becomes available.
$1000 more (MSRP) at Motoman which is close..ish to Simi Valley
Here’s the transmission spread
1st = 2.000. 2nd = 1.611. 3rd = 1.3333. 4th = 1.087. 5th = 0.920. 6th = 0.815.
Transmission sprocket = teeth 13. Rear Wheel Sprocket = teeth 47. Transmission ratio = 3.615.
What I read was that the 300 has the first gen motor, that was super ,reliable. A friend bought a second gen 310 because my other buddy had such great luck with his gen 1. At the end, he was leaving it outside, hoping it would be stolen, because gen 2 had such a horrible rep that no one would buy it.
Yep the 300 is the 2010 Husky 310(as is the 500 the 2010 510), so the "big block" engine, not the X lite.
The 500 now has the counter balancer. My biggest complaint about the old 510 was the vibs.
I often wondered why they stopped putting it in, I have one ready to drop into my 08 250 as soon as I have a reason to split the cases (or build my second engine).
There was quite a lot of people who were disappointed when they stopped putting the counter balancer in. Good thing about SWM using the old motors, parts for the older Huskys will become available again. I wish there was somewhere on the East coast that had a few SWMs to look at.
Did they start selling the PR7 here? I see it on the US website. That interests me much more then the 500.
did ajp get a new us importer? last i heard their us importer closed
Back in the '70's getting a new brand into the U.S. was easy. There had to be at least 40 brands available. Now, nuthin gets in. AJP's importer probably threw up his hands in disgust or ran out of money. I spoke with him several times a few years back and he was really enthusiastic. Federal regs probably left him a broken man.
I hope SWM is hugely successful
