:thumleft: glad you sorted and had a good laugh regarding the filler cap :biggrin:

I filled the oil, replaced the cap, idled for a few minutes to temperature and to make sure that the oil runs through all the parts. Then opened to top up, but was too excited to ride around the block, so completely forgot to replace it after the topup.  ::)

I felt like such an IDIOT, but it's too funny not to share, which is why I took the time go grab a photo...    :3some:

Ja we all fuckup sometimes - years ago I forgot my oil drain plug on my 1150GS only ever do it once as you do not want to see expensive full synth bleeding profusely from your scoots belly  :eek7:

Which reminds me of the guy who used a screwdriver to lock the gears when doing the torqueing of the counter balancer shaft and broke a tooth it is so tempting but you want a softer metal and the 'penny trick'' works great (as does a breaker bar on the flywheel on the other side to lock it down - may as well check the nuts that side while about it).

Yes I think we have all done that one Dom, and disturbed the left hand throttle cable so it only runs on one.  :biggrin:

The new selector shaft is a couple of mm longer than the original (not sure if this was an upgrade or mistake), so it's a bit of a mission to re-position the foot lever, as you have to make space by loosening the chain.

I seem to remember back in +- 2011 there was a factory recall on the gear selector input shaft for the TE630 and SM630 (the 630 having the same bottom end as the 610).
The new replacement part had a slightly longer shaft.

Thanks for the info! Good to know.  :thumleft:

So I checked the recalls on this bike and according to Husky, there were no recalls for this model. Surely they should've recalled all the models with that same bottom end?

Anyways, the problem is fixed now.

Just a quick update of her current state, riding as an enduro bike. The KTM tankbag makes for a nice tail pack, just big enough for a lunchbox or extra undies for the overnight trip.  :thumleft:

Apparently, it's even good for a nappy run when you select "Collect at Warehouse" from TakeAlot.com on a nappy special and the supposed collector had to deal with other baby related issues...
