Is the subframe still bent from the fall?

it's not bent it's warped a bit, it's not the subframe, it's the support "arm" for the rack, and it wasn't from the fall  :deal:

for reference sake, see photo... not going to bother fixing it, it's hardly noticeable and makes no difference to the handling of the bike...

Wes, I apologise for not reading the whole thread - maybe the answer is in there somewhere....

How strong is the sub-frame on these bikes? Is it (much) better than the X-Challenge sub-frame. I'm thinking of getting a TE 630, and want to know if this is an issue. I will not be loading it for anything more than a cold weather weekend, but the terrain could be interesting.


well to give you an idea, the warping you see there was a result of loading the rack with a full 5l jerrycan and some tools, but hitting a big big big bump - bottomed out the shock it was so big! so it's not the strongest subframe around, however, if you take a look on ADVRider, a lot of guys gusset their subframes which makes a huge difference...

I am about to test out a Giant Loop Coyote bag on the Husky, and I am convinced it's the best solution for loading the bike, since it carries the weight forward and low. My mistake was putting the jerry can too far back.

First of all, they do make one, they might just not bring it into the country:
http://www.leovinceusa.com/cart/search.php?Model=SM%20610&Make=HUSQVARNA&Year=
(SM and TE are essentially the same bike with minor changes)

Mine was actually originally intended for a Honda CRF 450 - I got it when I bought my XChallenge a couple years back as part of the deal. I had a connector made to fit it to the XCHallenge, and when the bike got written off kept it for a rainy day.

When I got the Husky I went to the Leo Vince site - I downloaded the schematic for both the Husky 610 and the Honda 450 end cans - to my delight they are identical in length, height and diameter! All I needed was an extra clamp (carbon fibre and a very specific shape, expensive), which I organised with the official importers, going through Cecil Penny Racing (since the importers can't sell direct) - the only thing was, the Husky's connector pipe is seperate from the end can, so I just had Scorch lop off the connector they orginally made for me (leaving a tiny piece) and voila!

Long story short, if they can't bring in the TE's can, you can always try for a CRF 450 can.

However, I'm not sure if the cans are the same for the carb and EFI models - yours is EFI, right? You might want to look into that.
