First thing I did was to replace the alu bash plate with a HYDE bash plate ( thanks sidetrack)

I rerouted the clutch cable , and it looks better , I still need to get wider foot pegs , a Leo Vince exhaust and better head light .  :thumleft:

Try this for footpegs, should not be difficult to get hold of stock KTM pegs

Cool bananas, HK enjoy your new steed!
I saw a LED light that is rectangular with 9 led's and gives 1600 lumens (27W) used as spotlights on 4x4's
Maybe you could make it fit in the existing cowling.

Thanks for the info will have a look  :thumleft:  ,  your light still standard ?

For the moment I am running the std light, but am busy building a cowling/bikini fairing with 2 of those 27W LED muthers in, should be done soon, look at "610 custom mods" thread for pics of that project.

Ja welcome to the Husky kennel ... well we actually do not sleep in kennels ... are too wild and tough  :biggrin:

You do not need to drop money on a LV end can. Although maybe a nice to have the standard exhaust decatted is just as good IMHO. It is then quite light and is a good extruded alu unit. You also retain that lovely H end pipe :)

Also while looking at pegs see if you can pick up a set of Pivot Pegz - have them now on 3 bikes and are the dogs danglers! Also while talking pegs you really must do a bolt replacement and check the flats on the contact areas of the peg mounts ... a good number of related failures due to some poor mating and fitting here ... and some of the Husky bolts are made from old Fiats!!

I agree Dom --Total waste --paid R7k for my Arrows on my one 610TE and catted the other one myself --No difference at all except --The Arrows cost big Moola -- ::)

Hi Guys

Im in Zeerust just arrived now 320 km trip , on close inspection  i see the baffle inside the exhaust broke of , and is loose in exhaust , can i drive back to Pretoria like this tomorrow 320 km ?
Title: Re: Husky 610 TE
Post by: BiG DoM on October 19, 2013, 01:34:34 pm
Should be no problem at all - will just rattle around. and may sound slightly noisier. I did the decat conversion on my exhaust and the rear rivets came a bit loose and when I opened it up the baffle which was spot welded in place to the end piece was also loose. Just rewelded, repacked the exhaust and rivetted back together. I think blazes did your zorst - speak to him but no biggie IMHO.

Ha ha ha !!


Made it back safe  in 3 hours , rain all the way !!!

Bike preformed well  , suspension , brakes , handling all awesome .

This is genuine a legende bke


Only issues I had was :

1. Number plate broke off
2.  Exhaust baffle inside broke  and is loose inside
3.Bike stood in rain last night , this morning it statetd easily and afther about 50m it started to back fire and  starve , after a few starts   All was good .
4. Spedo  cable stopped working on the way back  ( i suspect water , as it was moer wet )

Nice one, how do you rate it as a trip bike ?
Title: Re: Husky 610 TE
Post by: BiG DoM on October 20, 2013, 02:12:34 pm
Awesome HK - maiden trip is important. I think I lost 2 or 3 number plates off mine until I made a permanent fix with a smaller, albeit illegal, one. Exhaust is a real easy fix as it is just a weld at the outlet that is loose. Speedo could be water I guess or dirt on the magnet pick up on the front wheel ... or worse case scenario you have lost the magnet which is replaceable.

Yip I agree its minor , now I have a few things to do this week

1.Fix exhaust
2. Replace spedo cable ( first to find one )
3.get smaller number plate
4. The try to get the Airbox  open -  2 bolts are striped - any help here wil be appreciated
5. Do a lube service.

Post by: BiG DoM on October 20, 2013, 06:22:46 pm
OK - shit that is a common problem I hear. Luckily not had it myself. Essentially the bolts get over tightened and the threaded brass insert spins! Early advice is always to coat the bolts with copperslip but this will not help you. Once you get the bolts out there are a few fixes - one is to apply a small hose clamp to the plastic stub to tighten and hold the insert another is to drill down a few holes next to the insert and fill with epoxy or Q-Bond. To get the bolts out I have heard that a drill in reverse with the appropriate 8mm socket attached can work - evidently the spinning heats the plastic which then grips the brass ferrule. Search on Cafe Husky as well documented there.

I will help you with the airbox. Removed mine from the bike and used a soldering iron to enlarge the area around the brass inserts then used epoxy to keep them in place.

With the speedo, check the wire close to the dash, mine broke off there as the forks move up and down, the wire broke close to or at the little white plastic connector thingy. Just soldered the wire on and this time tie wrapped it so it does not bend there all the time. Quick fix if that is the problem. :)

Leo Vince, can get one in Milan for 300 euro, here they are ripping us off as usual.....if you ride a bike or go camping you will be ripped blind in this country of ours! I just gutted my Husky can and shortened it while I was at it. 50mm perforated pipe and some pot scourers...... Sounds really loud, even taxi's get out of my way! :thumleft:

Just a note to All Husky buyers --

When purchasing --in the past or a 2nd hand 610TE --Take the time to strip it and do all the mods that need to be done on them --air -box etc --even if they may have been done --just make sure,,,, will make your time on the bike more pleasant --One can not take too much for granted--- Got new ones that were not put together up to spec---Café Husky and Adventure Rider have pages of what to look for - Think that goes for all bikes --- just my 2c worth --- These bike work hard --

Also check the pipe that connects to the back off the airbox, crappy fit and it can easily suck some dust.

It's needed, put some plumbers tape on the fitting / pipe for a tight seal when plugged into the airbox.

Hi Hennie , nee glad nie , die bike ry lekker . Net n paar dinge wat ek moet  doen maar  dis maar klein goed  , no worries
What I found on my bike :

  • Loose bolts on the top motor mount
  • Fixed that breather pipe that goes into the airbox
  • Fixed the inserts in the airbox
  • Replaced the bolts on the footpeg brackets
  • The battery holder was cracked but I just put two big cable ties around it
  • Siliconed the mesh type covers on the airbox as it seems they held in place by a glue gun from the factory  ;D

All done in a day, not a big deal

Yep --small stuff imho --

I ended up doing all the mods to both my 610TE's and still I picked up other small issues --But the smile factors of these bike far exceed the odd  thing that crops up.
My one with 30,000 km's on has just been a pleasure since day one --replaced rocker bearings on cam and did the chain tensioner all at the same time 26,000km

My new one when I took it out the crate the radiator fluid was leaking out at the screw by the water pump and at 3,000 km the TP sensor went --

True, however, their severity differ between brands.

The KLR, has a red alert fix, which if left unchecked, might result in a melt down. I believe there is something of similar severity on the DR650. (I might be wrong)

On XR's for instance, you don't have to worry about replacing rocker bearings, bushes, or crank bearings.
You don't have to fix cracking parts on the frame or leaking air boxes.
In fact, you don't have to fix anything, you just ride them.

You have to run them without oil before damaging the crank bearing. With only 300ml oil, I still could not damage mine.
When you reach 40 000KM though, you will have to split the motor and replace the counter shaft.

I have always been told that the 610 is as reliable as any XR and believed them to be, but now I'm not so sure anymore  ???

Hi Dom

Its the spark plug cover . What do u mean with qd ?

Ok - though it may be. You should be able to pick up an NGK replacement at Midas, Autozone etc. They just screw onto the HD lead normally. Superglue would give a temp fix but I would look for a good quality replacement.

The QD's are plastic and quite a tight and tricky fit are often broken and the part on the petrol tank is a real bugger if broken to replace/fix. They just need extra attention when dealing with them.

Post by: BiG DoM on November 04, 2013, 07:26:04 am
I must say I have never had an issue with mine. I would look at some fibre/composite washers between the guard and the exhaust... or may just need a normal washer on top under the head bolts. Sometimes the bolts are just too long and while you think the guard is tight there is in fact a slight loose tolerance that starts the vibration.

As I have said - save your money and decat and slightly shorten if you want to. This has worked brilliantly for me. If you really want to go drop money on a zorst the Arrow is probably the best bet as you get a newly programmed FI module with it which is unobtainable on its own.  :3some:

how the hell do i get the oil out of the bike.

Im going to open the metal filters now....

Is the filler open?  - also oil should be warm for best flush but too late now if not. Also I like to tip the bike on either side and then let drain again.

Just to be sure, its only the one metal filter underneath the counter shaft?

Post by: BiG DoM on November 06, 2013, 10:11:36 am
There are two metal bag filters - first is on RHS between cover and the sump (transmission to the scavenge pump) you need to pull the cover - the other is set on the left sump (a twin filter - transmission to the pressure pump). Clean filters with petrol and compressed air. Insure you not the order of twin filter for reassembly.

Post by: adv on November 06, 2013, 10:26:55 am

Thanks boet.

I was a little concerned to only have 400ml in the tray. Luckily after I pulled the left hand side bag filter, it all came out.

Nope didn't fit the LV , to expensive and secondhand is impossible to find these days , I will look for that contact details of the guy who imports it but it is 6k + ,  I just fixed mine , welded it better . If it goes again I am going to fit a STEALTH exhaust they are about 3500 .

Typo? You probably mean 7000 rpm which is max available revs for that motor  
Your theoretical top speed with 15/47 is 159.2km/h. This does not account for drag at all.

Don't want to call you a liar but it is theoretically not possible to achieve that speed.
http://www.gearingcommander.com/ (http://www.gearingcommander.com/)

When I say "theoretical" I mean your gear ratio and available RPM's can yield 159km/h. We are thus not adding wind resistance and required HP to overcome said resistance.

Post by: alanB on December 05, 2013, 10:49:42 am
I've never tried a top speed run on my bike - not really interested.  I didn't buy the bike because of its top speed.

But when it was newish I went on a trip up to Louis Trichard, mostly on tar.  Outside of Polokwane, cruising on the highway I noticed a speed of 154/5 odd, and backed off - I normally cruise at 130 odd.  I wasn't pushing, just cruising.  It was going down a very long hill though, but it wasn't a steep hill, just one of those long rolling hills.  And I did have a Dakar fairing on the bike in those days - maybe that helped?

And my speedo was very accurate when ever I compared to GPS - so think that was the true speed.

Post by: BiG DoM on December 05, 2013, 11:00:08 am
Yes sorry typo - redline 7000.  Whether my runs have been long slightly down hill, tailwind, slipstreaming whatever ... I have had the scoot over 160 a number of times. I generally though do not look for top speed on this bike as this is not what I bought it for. I have though travelled in a squadron on tar with 950SE's, 1200's, S10's etc and have thus been in a position to fly formation and thus know the top end possibilities. Must also state my bike has the PU conversion, free breathing air box, freeflow exhaust and Power Commander which has helped greatly compared to the muzzled OEM version. I use a Dakar screen 630 light fairing and SM front mudguard.

155 was with 14 43. It runs 160 rather quickly with the 15 front.

I bought my bike on the strength of research I did, without riding it at all, and was quite dissapointed with it riding home on tar, but when I hit the dirt it was a different story. The on-road performance got a LOT better when I derestricted the pipe and did the power up mod on the Lambda sensor (the 2,2kOhm resistor), but its a small DS bike and not a superbike, and I don't like to rev the tits off it on road, so I almost never exceed 140 and mostly sit around 130 with std gearing. The condition of the back tyre must also make a difference, probably not a hell of a lot.
Dom, I heard the KTM front mudguard gives an extra 5km/h  :peepwall:

Many also forget that it is a 576cc bike and and not 610cc.

KTM mudguard would be definitely be faster ... when attached to a 690  ;D  Jokes aside some front mudguards can stuff with handling at speed.

Is this on start up or while riding? I would check the connections at the battery and then there is a common problem with wires  that chaff through at the battery cradle on some bikes. Could also be a loose wire at the ignition switch. Sounds electrical to me.

Can you hear the EFI Pump switching on and off when you turn the ignition on -- Some times a cracked fuse can also do that to the bike ---  or a fuel pump starting to play up

Saw the two of you --Dakota and I were on our way to Cullinan for a Quick Brekkie on our DD's before we joined the super motard club for a charity run --
Thought you were taking a tar ride and staying out of the mud when we passed you guys turning onto the Old Bronhorstpruit road  ;)

I got mine replaced by Conrad from Offroadcycles (Chinese crap by his words - but then I have 630) with something from BMW that should be more reliable. So you can try with him if the pump is the problem.

It does sound like it may also be pump - I would though check all the connectors first though before heading in the direction of replacing it (and buy a Hi Flo not a cheapie). It can happen that water gets into one of the connectors and corrodes and may just need cleaning up. As I have said look for loose battery terminal and then check wiring loom all along frame for possible chaffing.

New pump locally --Nope --I brought in from Cycle works under R1k ------ locally they want 6.5k for the complete unit --Just also check if the pump is clipped into position and best put a cable tie to hold it in place --- they like to come undone and cause havoc if you ride the bike over very rough terrain --

Thank's  :)

Took bike for a hour ride around town and all is good now ! , those bloody wires !! . I did reroute them to prevent this happening again !!

Thanks for all the help with this.

I want to  put a bigger sprocket at the back ,  I am thinking of 48 ? Or should i go bigger front to , the standard gearing is to tall. What u guys think ?

Pleasure boet - pleased I could help  :thumleft:

I have a 47 rear and seems to be a good balance - also gives good wear stats with the 15 front (the standard 15/45 is actually weak in this regard). Check out Gear Commander website for all the info and specs.

I commend your modesty. Rumour has it that the pervious owner spent in excess of 120K on that YZ.
