 ;D Sy weet, maar se maar net altyd "Jou koppie raas" of iets soort gelyks.

Al lank getroud en ken my streke, maar ek koop te minste redelik goedkoop bikes. Het nog nooit n nuwe bike gekoop of op HP nie, want dan sal sy minder gelukkig wees. Basies vat ek net dieselde geld en rol dit net die heeltyd om op ander bikes.

Almal is anders, maar ek sal nooit een bike vir te lank kan ry nie. Soek altyd na nuwe ervarings.

Nee, anderste as vorige kere hou ek baie van die DR en het ek geen planne om hom te verkoop nie. Hy bly my DS bike en die ou staatmaker. Het nog baie planne vir hom.

Hou eintlik van my garage soos dit nou daarna uitsien.

This board needs something to talk about  :biggrin:

 :biggrin: I have been reading up on the Husky board quite a bit and see you were very active. I hope you will help a noob like me along? 

I will be wiring up the new instrument cluster to the bike this weekend. I am wiring up a new male connector plug and there  is a magnitude of different wires and functions involved, so I will do a pictorial and an explanation thereof if someone will find it useful for future reference. 

Right now my challenge is to prepare the bike for COR, which means that I must -

1. get the instrument cluster and its associated functions (speedo, rev counter, etc) working fully
2. get the headlamp's dim and bright functioning properly after having removed the spotlights and their wiring.
3. fabricate a supporting frame for the plastic front-sprocket cover. One of the casted "pillars" to which the cover bolts just in front of the sprocket has sheared off flush against the casing. I suspect the reason might be that the front sprocket fitted was oversize to enable easy highway cruising (the bike was used to commute with) and that, as a result, the chain knocked the pillar down. On my DR the PO did something similar with the result that no normal chain guard can fit anymore.
4. I also want to also confirm the gear ratio's and reduce it to up the torque and lower the top-end.

Beautiful bike J :thumleft:

Do you perhaps know what the plastics are made of - ABS, etc? Got two small cracks I have to sort. If it is ABS I can do the Acetone and lego block fix, but if made of another type of plastic I will need to look for a professional plastic welding job.

So a few quick posts to document pre-weekend progress thus far.

First off, I will have to make a plan with the front sprocket cover. I suspect that a bigger than 15 is fitted up front and knocked it clean off the casing. The below two foto's seems to confirm that fact. Will attend to it this week-end.   
Title: Re: Kykdaar's 610 SM thread
Post by: Kykdaar on June 26, 2015, 10:17:23 am
So after stripping, cleaning and re-assembling the carb, I turned my attention to the tank, the petcocks and the tank vent.

Started by washing out the tank and this round sponge like thing fell out. No idea what it is.

Cleaned the pre-filters on the petcocks on both sides. Apparently the tank is divided into left and right side compartments and this design is necessary to ensure both sides drain. Personally I think it is to feed that big carb with enough fuel and I suspect you will run into fuel starvation if you shut the left hand side off - even with a full tank.

Also gave me the chance to have a look at the low level indicator mounted in the stack - clearly something going on in the top part there. Don't know if it contains some kind of sender, but remnants of the wiring to communicate its message was still in place. I soldered new wires on and fitted it into a decent connector plug that I would later marry up with the wiring harness.

Fuel sorted.
Title: Re: Kykdaar's 610 SM thread
Post by: Kykdaar on June 26, 2015, 10:37:59 am
Now the wiring -

First off, I removed the previously mounted LED spot lamps. I do not like the ide that it was spliced into the bike's main beam and prefer spot lamps that are individually controlled by means of a separate switch mounted on the handlebars.

The previous owner bought a brand new instrument panel (apparently over R4K). That is the good news. The bad news is that the male connector block, as well as the wires that it must match up to has been butchered.

I dug around a bit and found the wiring sequence for the connector block. The plugs are made by Mouser, and I would normally have had to import. Either that or a new wiring harness as the plug is at the end of the harness and most of its wires are integrated into the main loom. Luckily I have well-informed friends and two days after hitting this seemingly dead wall I was busy wiring up the connector.
Title: Re: Kykdaar's 610 SM thread
Post by: Kykdaar on June 26, 2015, 10:55:57 am
Right, so I first fit a spare second hand instrument cluster and power the bike up. It flickers but does not seem to want to complete its start-up sequence. Eish.......my heart sinks.

Decide to try the new unit and plug it in. Immediately powers up and complete its start up sequence. Every light on it works - indicator, light, high-beam, whatever. I am ecstatic - mission completed.

Then, as I touched the wiring lower down where it connects the main loom to re-arrange things, the unit flickers and re-starts. So, there is either a short somewhere or an issue with the power cable further down the loom.

Just one thing for it - I cut the plastic sheath from the loom as far back as I dared, including each separate branching thereof. The next hour is spent examining every single wire, looking for a crack or exposed insulation. Nothing. I sit around for a while, a bit uncertain how to proceed.

Then I get up, take a large roll of insulation tape and decide to "re-build", isolate and properly fasten this loom. I build a logical path for it, making sure it is tightly wrapped and properly secured whilst still leaving enough space for the headlight to be re-fitted. Job done I reassemble everything and switch on the ignition. The unit powers up like normal. I press on the loom in a few places, as well as move the bars from left and right a number of times - no issues, everything stays working the way it should.

Now it is just the rear light that must be sorted out. The brake lights work, but not the main light - and no I am not so lucky that it is only the bulb ;D There is probably some wiring there too that needs some care.

Post by: Kykdaar on June 26, 2015, 11:05:08 am
As you work through the bike you examine, observe and can draw some conclusions.

I would describe the bike is being in very good condition for a 2006. The issues I picked up thus far is fair wear that can be expected.

When I bought the bike I was given a bag full of previous parts that was replaced by new ones - these included an impeller, piston rings, timing chain and timing chain adjuster. Looking at the gaskets and gasket material it is obvious that this took place, and not too long ago.

Certain rubber parts have become cracked or perished - but again that is to be expected and will be attended too.   

Fact is these are great bikes and once I get it up to my standards, I hope to have many miles on it.

Replicating a previous post on my carb here, so that it is all together -

Found the bottom fuel cap to be full of crap ;D

Must fit some inline fuel filters to prevent a repeat.

The inside of the bowl is reasonably clean and I spend some time checking the float hight spec and looking fir wear in the needle - everything cool.

Then I take out the jets to clean. This thing has some monster jets - a 172 main, a 50 pilot and a 85 starting jet. Holy smokes - no wonder it pulls like it does

Between the DR and the SM's challenges you're fast becoming a master mechanic!

Well done for sorting the issues out yourself! So rewarding, and half the fun of owning the bike!

So the weekend arrives nice and miserable - great for spending in the garage though :)

First order of business was to finally wrap up the wiring. First I put the finishing touches to the front - now it is neat and logical.

Last remaining issue was the bike's backlight - it refuses to light up, even though the rear brake lights work. The globe is fine, both filaments intact, so I had to start digging deeper. Identify the correct wiring and start tracing back - I get 12V power all the time, yet the thing remains dead. Take the rear light fitting itself out and have a closer look. I test each terminal for continuity and quickly discover that the terminal feeding the normal backlight shows no continuity.

Fortunately I am able to source a replacement from Blazes - and there was light  ;D. Next I cut off all the connections made for the aftermarket indicators previously fitted and moved then backwards so that the rear light loom and integrated dust grommet could fit inside the rear light housing the way it is supposed to.

Next up was getting the remaining issues for COR out of the way - bought a new legal plate and fitted that as well as the license disk.

The remaining big challenge was to re-engineer the fitting off the sprocket cover. It was basically hanging on by one bolt after the front pillar mount snapped off against the casing.

I remover the metal remnant of the pillar, cut the plastic part that it rested on off to act as a small spacer for the top bolt. I then fabricated a frame clamp with a side flange, fitted a aluminium flat bar to that which went in behind the front cover bolt hole and which could act as a support for that bolt - whilst keeping everything away from the sprocket. The last touch was to strengthen the rear of the cover to keep it still and the whole thing nice and fixed.

From a flimsy to a solid mounted cover - not too bad. That, together with a good clean of the chain also took care of the last possible COR issue and I will put the bike through the test this week.
Title: Re: Kykdaar's 610 SM thread
Post by: Kykdaar on June 29, 2015, 09:18:10 am
Next I refitted the carb, air box and filter.

As picked up by Sidetrack earlier air box has nice fine cracks running through it and need replacement - when viewed next to a TE 610 air box it is evident how wide the throat of the SM is and why it eats petrol like it does ;D

A more serious concern was the inner part of the air filter box assembly. This looks to be the part which fared the worst in the bike's 10 year history. It is seriously old and fragile and needs replacement as soon as possible. Its plastic has deteriorated very badly and if you push too hard at some places it feels as if you will break right through without any issues.

Nevertheless, back for now whilst I order and await the parts.

Start the bike up - which by the way is never exactly the same like, for example the DR. Sometimes she like some throttle, at other times you need only press the button. As temperamental as the come, but when you get on and twist her ear you are grinning like an idiot within a few minutes and all issues are forgotten. At least I do not forget to notice that the rev counter, speedo and odometer is working perfectly. 

There is something special about Italian bikes.

Title: Re: Kykdaar's 610 SM thread
Post by: Kykdaar on June 30, 2015, 11:42:49 am
Last night I put in a loaner air filter box inner and air filter filament - thanks Blazes! - whilst I await my parts order and in order to ensure that here are no ingress of anything into the engine via a possible broken air filter box.

From the word go, the filter that came with the bike looked wrong to me - surely the holes should sit on the inside towards the carburettor feed and not to the outside.

When I compared the proper Twin Air filter to what I have it is as if it is an inverse of the original - i.e. made for an air box that is fitted to the left side of the bike.

I re-fitted everything including the plastics and the bike is now ready for COR.

It is cold in the garage - even the dogs think that I am nuts spending so much time there  ;D

Post by: Kykdaar on July 12, 2015, 06:00:24 pm
So what to do on a weekend with a bum ankle? That is obvious - disassemble the Husky and fix something off course.

The exhaust has been bothering me for a long time. Below the dirt the exhaust was painted black - that has deteriorated over time with bare spots of metal all along the pipe. Although mostly covered by shields it looked k@rk.

So with plenty of time the process began. Took off everything except the front header and got stuck in with a combination of a copper wiring brush,  fine water sandpaper and steel wool.

Once all the paint was off and the imperfections progressively sanded down, it was time to get down to some serious polishing.

Used a combination of drill mounted polishing pad and polishing compounds, dremel polishing and free hand polishing with Autosol.

Very happy with the way it came out.

Post by: Kykdaar on July 20, 2015, 08:33:08 am
So what to do with a "broken" foot and suffering borderline OCD? - well, you clean and polish your bike of course. And then you clean it some more. And then you fiddle around after that ;D

The wheels and swing arm was already polished by the previous owner so I decided to add the triple clamps to the equation to get the balance right - and to keep me busy. Then followed small stuff like the hooter. Cleaning and polishing it I sat and marvelled at the beauty and solidity of it - it is a piece of art.

I am also currently awaiting the arrival of some spares. For those put off by the perceived "spares problem" with Husky's I have experienced none of that so far. Orders are mailed in, EFT's and the parts are available 8-10 days later at surprisingly good prices. For example, my left hand fuel petcock is fubar - a new one from agents R148.48. That is not bad.

Where something is not immediately available they give you a ETA at factory and you can then decide if you want to order in the meantime, or wait.   

So after I am done I run through the switches to check on the electrics again because I had the instrument cluster off and have re-routed a number of electrical connections. Everything worked as it should. Not expecting anything to happen (as the bike has been in a semi-stripped state for some time) I touched the starter button just to check if the starter motor would swing over. The bike roared into life instantly.

Did I ever mention that I love this bike?

It seems to me that the more interesting a bike is to me, and perhaps the more temperamental (or Italian), the more appealing it is as it satisfies both my mechanical and riding needs. The Husky seems to be more than just a bike - it has some real soul.

I can hardly believe it, are we talking Primrose here for spares or ordering from overseas ? My friend waited about 6 months for a chain slider when it finally arrived he had sold his bike a long time ago and told them to keep it  :biggrin: Not their fault as the factory was in between the BMW/ KTM takeover at that stage. I found it to be a big head ache. Granted I never bought from overseas and Blazes always helped me out.

No I like the Z, yes it's big and bulky and I put it down 10 times in one ride but it has a strange attraction for me. It looks the part, walked out of Midas and looked at my bike and thought yeah that looks good  :biggrin: . It's a great commuter in town as well. Plus it's a Yamaha so nothing ever needs done to it. I  straightened out all the tumble related mayhem with a hammer and it's good as new, seriously  >:D I was thinking if I could afford a lighter second bike without money being a concern it would be a toss up between :

2007 KTM 525 (that bike has proven itself to me)
KTM 500 (just as good as the 525 from what I have read, will skip the 530 imho)
2006 TE 610 (love the carb but good luck finding another low mileage one again)
2012 and UP WR450F (again looks and goes great, do not like the older models)

But yes I was looking at old ride reports and there is just no way the XT660Z will give me confidence to do anything remotely technical ever again  :( Looks like I'm going to have to stick to the main dirt roads for now.

I put in two orders, but asked them to only let me know when both has arrived so that I only make on e-toll trip. The second order was placed 13/7/2015 and they say 8 - 10 days. So we will wait and see ;D

Yes, I also noticed the KTM branding.

My second order includes the rubber boot connecting the back of the carb to the back of the airbox inner, as well as my new fuel petcock.

Can assemble and ride now, but then I would just needs to dissasemble again. Should have the rest next weekend.

Ok - I see now. I turfed the complete shyte air box in favour of a pod filter. http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=141436.0 (http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=141436.0)

Do you know that especially on a SM it benefits from the air box cover being opened up for better breathing? (Problem with the TE is that it could mean easier ingress of water with river crossings etc)
Title: Re: Kykdaar's 610 SM thread
Post by: Kykdaar on August 02, 2015, 08:00:11 am
Yes, I was also contemplating it. In fact there was no factory ETA for the airbox part on the order and I was surprised that it turned up. If it did not I would have gone the pod route as this bike will only be used on road.

Must do a bit of reading on opening the airbox - do they drill bigger holes in it?

I have the standard jetting - maybe one would need the larger jets of the 510 (e.g. 180 vs 172) for this too work?

One thing about the SM - due to the nature of the beast and the way I ride it the fuel consumption is dismal. If I remember correctly the last time I checked I filled the tank and hit reserve 88km's later @ around 9km/l. That is just slightly better than my V6 bakkie ;D

Yes the guys drill larger holes and cover with mesh and then there are aftermarket solutions which you also cut the lid for and have a special breathable mesh - cannot think of the name now but if you do a search on Cafe Husky (4T thread) you will find info.

One thing about the SM - due to the nature of the beast and the way I ride it the fuel consumption is dismal. If I remember correctly the last time I checked I filled the tank and hit reserve 88km's later @ around 9km/l. That is just slightly better than my V6 bakkie ;D
Can't be right, I once managed 26km/l with my TE and that was with knobbles and offroad low gearing, same carb as yours  ???
On average I got around 20 -22km/l.

Yes, I was also contemplating it. In fact there was no factory ETA for the airbox part on the order and I was surprised that it turned up. If it did not I would have gone the pod route as this bike will only be used on road.

Might be very dependant on size of the rider and throttle usage
You are small in comparison to kykdaar and hardly rode your's hard.

Specially for Sidetrack ;D



Also interesting to see the KTM branding on spares!

Make sure you put lots of water proof grease on those brass insert threads and DO NOT tighten them too much,  just a barely nip works fine.

Your bike is getting all the attention my is missing over the last month or so!

Really need to make time to go on a ride.

The problem is after the last Swaziland trip with all that superb riding terrain, everything around here is just too flat and boring, and the 60 k ride to DeWidlt is just such a pain!  You have to get up at sparrow fart.

I really wish I could find a short little technical circuit I could do in an hour or so not far from home.  So when I get the spare chance in the week or something I could pop out for a quick ride.

Yea but 9km/l is not normal, Kykdaar I reckon you have a 250 main jet in there  >:D

Ja, I ran out of fuel when I went riding with Blazes and Dakota because it caught me out to.

Have stripped and cleaned the carb again today whilst busy with the rest of the bike. When I go riding next time I will keep an accurate recor and see if I was mistaken.

One thing though - with that bike it is nearly full throttle all the way, so I do not expect great fuel consumption.

So I had occasion to put some fuel in the bike today after filling it a few days ago when I remembered to zero the trip meter.

It did 55.5km on 4.31 lites. That equates to 12.81km/l or 7.80l/100km (if my math is correct)

On the 12 litre fuel tank that gives me a range of 153km's.

So if you buy a SM, good fuel consumption should not be on your list :biggrin:

So this weekend I spent fooling around with carbs - the SM included. A further reason of wanting to open up the FCR-MX 41was to try and find out why my consumption is so awful.

Started by taking a look at the squirt coming from the Accelarator Pum (AP) when you yank open the throttle. The idea, I believe is that is squirts a little bit of raw fuel for the engine to chew on whilst the revs can catch up.

On my bike the AP squirts a stream of fuel about 1.5 meters far for about 3 seconds :o Think I have found out where all my fuel is going. The AP actuator setting looked normal so I had a look at the bleed jet. The jet was blocked off which meant it did not bleed any fuel from the pump hence the cannon shots of fuel. I swapped it out with a size 60 bleed jet to restore some normality.

Next up was the rather rich size 50 pilot. Bike was battling to idle evenly with the fuel screw 2 turns out so I substituted it with a size 40 pilot. Will result in a little popoing on decel, but a small prize to pay for a better running and idling bike.

I retained the stock DVR needle but lifted it from 2nd to 5th clip position counting from the top.

Finally I swopped the standard 172 main jet for a 180 to wake up the top end a bit.

Bike pulls like a freight train through the entire throttle range without hesitation or bogging.

My SM610 did a constant 18km/l and I was usually going everywhere at 145-150kph.

Was vir so n rukkie in die dogbox, maar ma weet my koppie raas.

Sal my net vir so n rukkie mooi moet gedra.

I must admit - the thought crossed my mind. Didnt some dude recently finish Amageza on a converted SM?

Maybe, will not rule it out.

So today I spent prepping the bike. Added rear indicators and wired them up, got the plate on and did what felt like another 101 little things. Finally I spent a few hours cleaning it up.

Not my favourite colour scheme, but it is looking a hell of a lot better than yesterday

Cant wait to get rid of this horrid red/pink colour scheme.

White hubs near a chain isnt the most practica choice either.Black and gold coming up ;)

Also horribly short geared 13/43 - going to take it back to stock 15/45

Today I went to work on the bike and put it through roadworthy.

Got home this afternoon and stripped it down to its frame on wheels with engine still in.

Enjoyable exercise apart from the normal story of butchered parts, stripped or cross-threaded bolts, sloppy previous work, etc.

Going to rebuild this one to my standard and looking forward to it.

Thanks :thumleft:

The problem with red anodising is that it fades over time and ends up an eyesore.

The current look is a bit too extravagant for me. Want to tone it down a bit and give it a more subtle and classy look.

It already has some gold parts (suspension, brakes, etc), so I will add a black frame, gold anodised rims, black anodised hubs, carbon fibre shrouds and covers, black and gold x-ring chain, gold sprocket, ceramic coated headers, and a few small touches of chrome.
