Thought I should just see what you guys suggest..

Well the usual thing - set the sag and adjust the dampers to taste.  The manual has some suggestions on the damping settings that are probably a good place to start if the riders weighs around 80kg's or so.

My front shocks have absolutely no adjustment possible (although you can apparently retrofit the damping adjuster by just ordering the part from Husky).  But they work well enough for me as is :thumleft:

First service oil filter air cleaner etc at 1,000km approx R650

Thereafter every 5,000km between R850 to R1,000 and maybe more depending on if they fit tyres -chain -sprockes brake pad's etc

I service mine every 4,000 km's oil is cheap -and when i have ridden her hard on a  trip -- i just drop the oil anyway -- and replace it 20 to 30 minutes job on your time

I paid R975.00 for a 5000km service. The next service I will do myself. Can not justify the cost of changing oil for that kind  of money.

Some useless info BTW. The Battery from a 610 is the exact same as a F800GS.

If you are waiting for their sales numbers to rival other brands - best you go buy a BMW!

Once my hand is healed, I'm going to take Sidetrack's uncorked bike for a spin.
If it pulls as well as he said, I won't mind owning one of these bikes myself.

Anytime - still not a Husaberg though, the gutted pipe is a big improvement. Maybe you can buy Blazes uncrated 610  :biggrin:

Michelin Deserts will sort out that problem; they are about as tough a tire as you can get.  :thumleft:
