For that matter, go 'merican and allow owners to service and retain the warranty.  Rather that than using mechanics.

I trust myself and  "my" LBS (local bike shop)  in any case, but then I don't have bikes with a warranty.

Something else I thought of.

It would be beneficial if the 'generic' option of consumable parts like brake pads, air filter etc is available for the guy/shop to do the normal services.  I used generic parts on my buggy but it was a mission to find the equivalent Yamaha part.

Did anybody see the AJP dirt bikes featured on the World's Greatest Motorcycle ride though Scotland? They looked good.

As far as i remember 630 was DOHC 600cc engine, while 610 was SOHC 570 cc engine. Apart from that the same.

Suspension on 630 was lot worse, at least compared to early models 610. Later on 610 suspension was dumbed down, still better. This pr7 seems to have suspension better tgan any of those bikes.

If I recall the 630 was double cam and the 610 single cam, this dealt with the narrow angle on the 610 which caused the chain to eat the reed valve.

Slasher have you got some feedback re servicing and warranty as I am very keen on making a decision on one of these bikes as it ticks all the boxes.

Part of the problem with the Husqvarna TE610/630's was poor dealer network support at the time in SA with the red Huskys. While popular and very well respected as middleweight DS bikes in USA, Europe, NZ and Oz they therefore never found that same following in this country. Instead they became a kind of well kept secret amongst niche ownership. True story. Just saying.  :3some:

I got an email the other day from a a thread I posted years ago on the 610 clutch problems.
AJP have apparently sorted the problem out by changing the springs in the clutch.

Correspondence with them via Cafe Husky only resulted in them saying there is no problem - never any admission of them fixing or changing anything. Those of us who have/had the 610/630 know that it is the spring spacers/washers that were the weak link rather than the springs themselves? The replacement hardened ones have lasted on every bike that they were fitted to. I wonder what the change to the springs is?

I agree, the changing out of the washers sorted the problem.
