I initially put a GS Dakar screen on my bike, but eventually took it off.

I found the slight relief in wind pressure at highway speeds was more than off set by buffering, noise, helmet vibration etc.  Also I was getting sick and tired of being whacked in the face and chest in technical sections.

I far prefer it without the screen now.  I still have the Dakar screen lying around.

PS the 610 was fitted with two types of chains fromthe factory, a Regina which is good and a "CZ" (or something like that cant remember the exact two letters but it features a "C"), this was crap and known to break unexpectedly. Just some info I picked up from AdvRider

The best value for money chain is the DID X ring gold, normally buy from Biking Accesories. Well priced and lasts !

Any idea for foot pegs?

I have Pivot Pegs and very happy with them - managed to pick them up 2nd hand for a good deal. I also have them on my 450 and HP2 - not cheap but they just work!  :thumleft: I am surprised no one is a dealer here in SA?

Any idea where I can get white side covers?



Thinking it would go well with the white front mudguard and headlight.

Unfortunately were never any 610 aftermarket plastics. Best bet is have them plastic wrapped in vinyl - is quick and also reversible if not happy.

Beware!!! your side cover is not fitted properly, the front edge needs to be on the outside of the tank not underneath the tank. The way it is now that side cover will be rubbing against the shock reservoir and will rub a groove into it very quickly.

Anyone know the eye-to-eye length of the Sachs rear shock by any chance?

Anyone fit a stearing damper? I need the mountt and bar for a Scotts damper made up or to buy if available
Surely if I was obsessed with motorcycles I’d have more than one; no two; no three; no no, four… ah, never mind…

Apparently an overkill on the 610 TE.

Due to the rake on the 610, it is an extremely stable machine.

Sorry, can't help.

I have a Scott's on mine with BRP mount if I remember correctly. Will check when home tomorrow - at an enduro with my son. Nice setup with risers and damper under bar. Can take pic. Has saved my ass a good few times 👍🏽

This is what I have on mine: https://www.brpmoto.com/index.php/husqvarna/product/1616-brp-sub-mount-kit-b-06-09-husqvarna-te-610.html
Definitely bought it a few years back when exchange rate was not so hectic!

I had a damper so just bought the rest. This one shown is complete. Look at just the bracket and pin separately and look here for a second hand damper.
Scotts themselves also sell but think are made by BRP anyway
