1999 Husqvarna redo

Recommended Posts

10 years ago I owned this plated TE610 and she looked like this. Kind of an Anders Eriksson theme world enduro look.

Looks like she could use a little TLC...

the best thing is that the tires are still the same.....they are like hardened steel.Lots to do. Next pic will be as is now rolling chassis with engine in. Will do a nice pressure wash then drain oil clean filters and adjust valves. Then begin to sort out the wiring harness to create a full FIM enduro spec layout (plated of course). And I found these simple cool sorry but made in china battery powered clamp on bars horns (120dB!!). Tested on my 300 for durability.

Heres that horn, super light low mass. I put it on my TX300 and rode around and it was still on the bars when I came back!! So it passed the dirt test, I will get another one for the 610 now. I like horns on my dirtbike they are very effective when catching up to racers/riders to let them know you are there, and for some ingrained reason folks tend to move over when they hear a horn on the trail.

the problem with that is the full hand required to operate the squeeze ball!!!. BTW if you look at many ISDE bikes from the 80-90s the racers would use squeeze ball horns because they are fool proof and always worked when called upon for op inspections/FIM DOT compliance regulations.

progress, is moving forward. Those odd graphics are already peeled waiting for a set of my OEM 1998 TC610 graphics, I also have a set of YEL Y2K shrouds for another set of clothes for the old gal. If anyone know the color code or a good rattle can (duplicolor etc.)for the gold engine paint let me know. Carbby is done and ready for reinstall. going a little less period and into bling status with my new set of coolant hoses Silicone BLU.

progress is going well, valve clearance is now at OEM spec. happily they were not tight, both sides were on the loose side (noisy side).

basically is is now in fix up the wiring mode and final assembly.

Gotcha.     In that case get it outta there.  lol.  Have seen a couple bikes burn up though from filters catching on a good pop back into the box.

Leave it in place as is. Is the answer. You can see it in the mouth of the airbox

I got my real answer.

TwinAir  Tech data dual layer foam WHT outer larger pore, to ORN inner smaller pore.  And their 3 layer filter design,  same as dual but with a BLK layer inside that is fire resistant designed to eliminate backfire screens installed in many 4 stroke motorcycles. So I will leave the screen in place, the TwinAir filter for the 610 is the standard dual layer foam type.

I'm doing a little research with other brands Motorex, UNI etc to see if they are fire resistant on the inside layer

Also due to a few hurdles I am going for the all WHT Cemoto Plastica Italia plastic set up, so Front and Rear fenders will be WHT along with the OEM WHT shrouds and side panels. So she will have a more modern/retro (80s) color scheme.  Man I sure will have alot extra stuff boxed for this bike!!!
