701 cush drive or not?
« on: May 29, 2019, 06:20:54 pm »
Husqvarna noob question: Has the 701 a cush drive rear and if so would it fit my 08 610 TE?

Cheers Lars

Yes it does and no it won't

Must say the lack of cush drive not huge issue - just stick to knobblies and dirt
Surely if I was obsessed with motorcycles I’d have more than one; no two; no three; no no, four… ah, never mind…

The 610 has cushioning in the clutch that helps makes up for the lack of cush drive.

Sign up for the website group Cafe Husky - lots of info there and pics etc. Were the clutch washers done on your bike?

@BiG DoM
Can not Fin any info on this. See clutch have some springs but that is on the wrong side of gearbox to do the same as cush drive
