What did my Husky eat?
« on: February 27, 2016, 06:29:45 pm »
Spent a few pleasant hours servicing my SM610.

Just after I got the bike about 2000km ago, I did what I normally do and serviced it replacing the normal paper oil filter, the oil, cleaning/oiling the air filter and oiling the chain.

Did the same this time, but now knowing the bike a lot better as a result of my project SM, I also removed the cartridge filter located just below the gear lever.

The paper oil filter was clean, the oil was clean and there was hardly any fine shavings on the magnetic plug.

The cartridge filter had a bit more metal particles, but when I felt inside the cavity I found these particles lying there and I fished them out.

Anyone have an idea know where they came from?

Looks like parts of a cylinder base gasket...or similar

I agree with Superfoxi, colour and size definitely looks like gasket.

It would make sense, the bike had a new timing chain and piston rings fitted by the previous owner which would have necessitated the replacement of the base gasket. A piece could have fallen in and made its way to the mesh filter.

Those two screen filters seem to be very effective,  I've never had a bike that had them before.

On the DR's clutch and magneto casings, there are large sections of the casing gaskets that are "flapping" in the oil, and are not squeezed between the metal sections of the casings.

Have not seen them break off by themselves, but they are brittle and brake easy, when removing the old gasket material.

Could be from these gaskets on your Husky.

As long as it's not metal!

They are very effective. Husky has three different filters - great design to protect the bike :thumleft:

But I'm pretty sure Jap bikes don't need them because they dont end up chowing their own enternals  :biggrin: I agree a very good preventative design.
