Any idea on how to fix this ?


What is it??? struggling to see.

PS Be very careful with the QD's (quick disconnects) ... been more than one unhappy Husky owner due to those.  ::)

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 --
People DON'T Change --we just get to know them better

It took me 2 hours to get the tank off and fix that  bloody airbox !!






When I was about to put the tank back  found the  culprit that got wet an gave me some trouble the other day


Any idea on how to fix this ?
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.

Ai, dis vir my bitter moeilik om julle ouens nie moelikheid te gee oor julle knaend stukkende huskies nie.
Is daai RXV al uit die workshop uit  :biggrin: Met mooi beplanning so tussen deur herstelwerk  kan ons almal eendag n ride saam doen.

Went to look for a spedo cable. , but nobody has stock and must be ordered . 2 weeks .

So I found a broken one Hennie gave me and just cut off the bottom piece and joined it to the  current cable  and it works !! So this will do until the new one comes

Henko,
My brak het daai speedo kabel twee keer afgevreet - dis hoekom daar 'n stukkende ekstra een was.
Ek voel half skuldig dat jy so paar probleme gehad het langs die pad - ek het maar ook gesukkel met daai exhaust. Het ook al ewig los gerattle.
Hoop jy het darem nie buyers'remorse nie?

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  ???
