Oil Leak on Husky 610
« on: August 19, 2020, 01:27:49 pm »
As stated, not had time to check where from but was wondering if any other 610 owners have had issues?

It's not a lot, and emanates from below (ie bashplate).

I have now spent more that 5 grand on this bike and think I bought a pig in a poke.

Look for it in the for sale section soon, or I may just have somebody burn it and claim insurance

Gatvol is a delicate term.

Sell it back to the person who  sold it to you ... you can add 5 G to the selling price ..........How long have you had it and how many KM  have you added.?

Good Luck

What does the seller say about all this .........probably nothing .....    the worm will turn as they say ........ Get rid of it when it is fixed and go back to Jap Scrap that you can ride it like you stole it, put it away wet ... ready to go the next day ........

Ok let me get this straight........ 

You bought this bike for  xxxx Ronts
Had it for 3 months  and 300 KM .....
The ouke you bought it from said  their was nothing wrong with it ........ That he knows of ...
Since you had it you spent an extra 5 G on it to get it going after shutting down while riding it     and now an oil leak ......

Where and who is the ouke  who sold  you this pristine motorcycle ......... He should be made to buy it back from you at the original price as you have 5G plus on renting and  having it fixed for him ...

And I dont care if I get banned but the seller should be named ..... or he will take someone else for a ride  next time ,,, He probably  has buddies on the forum ....

The 610 is a solid bike.

Mine only gave me pleasure.

Have a KTM 500 now.

The issues you have could have reared their heads after the bike was sold to you, or the seller not being aware of them.

We have different standards, and what might be an issue for one person, is a non event to the next.

I'm sure SvR told me who the previous owner was. Well known on here.

Sort it out with the previous owner directly.

Nothing wrong with the 610Te bikes. I have never had any serious issues with any of mine.
oil dripping from the sump plate can only be a few minor things.

1. Tappet cover gasket may have a slight leak and seep down into the bash plate.
2. Oil breather pipe from frame to air box has come off and also running into bash plate.
3. Main sprocket shaft seal drive seal has to be replaced and O ring behind collar on it. aftermarket parts are fully available and cost maybe R50 usually shows when bike is on side stand.
4. Chain lube sprayed or oil put on the outside of chain and blows into bash plate and motor when riding. Quite often the easiest to solve. Lubricate chain on inside and not outside  :biggrin:
5. Could also be a sump plug that may not be tight or oil messed when changing oil filter or filling oil change.
Just what i think.

If they delete yhis it will be like the Gestapo all over again.
I made the seller the offer of returning the bike and getting a refund. Ball is in his court.

I am sure the Husky is a good bike ..... The Husky guys I ride with love them... even if they are high maintenance  compared to my WR 250 r Yammie that will outlast them all .  :peepwall:

 We all have standards I agree but Electrical failure and oil leaks are not acceptable ... not for me anyway and should not be for any bike ,except a Harley perhaps .

The point here is not what  can be done to fix it .... I am not a very sharp tool but even I know that most things give you a warning shot before  something happens .... If I heard correctly the wiring that was fixed was a mess when it was sold ....... Did the owner not know this .???? se maar niks .

The buyer and seller are talking now since I asked questions I believe .... Not before ....

If we cannot ask questions on the forum where can we ask them ... If someone sells you something they say has no issues and is a great bike  he/she 
should have no problem taking it back for the price he sold it in the first place ... as I said before ... that person  will get it back in better condition that he sold it for ....

......and that fact cannot be disputed .....

Lekker Naweek aan almal .. ek se

A very happy  wr250r  Jap scrap  owner ..... and yes I know I may not be man enough to ride a Husky or KTM ....

So why stick your ear in.
The original question was regarding the leak.
The last few times I tried to contact the buyer no response and on Cafe Husky there was no help.

I stuck my paddle in as the Buyer had all the issues with a "pristine" bike he bought that has given all the issues during the 300 km's he has ridden it .. He did contact the Seller with no response I believe until THE Questions on were asked on the forum . .

The Buyer did not  ask the questions on the forum so I did ... They are valid questions are they not .. If they were out of line the moderators would bump me ..
I have never had the spoon ...or been bumped ...

I make no excuses and stand by my questions    I dont know about anyone else but 52 000 is a lot of money.... in my books anyway ...
