"08 TE610 Forks

Recommended Posts

I think we have a small problem. The forks on the '08 TE610 have NO compression adjustment …… Take a look at your forks and post here what you find.

From the Husky USA site.

The rear arm is the same as used on the TE 450/510 models and has a new Sachs shock absorber with compression and rebound adjustment using a redesigned link. At the front is a pair of Marzocchi 45 mm inverted forks with adjustable compression and rebound damping. The Brembo brakes feature a floating 4-caliper 260 mm front disc while rear braking is left to a 220 mm disc.

Is it the same on the brake side? Compression damping only on one side maybe?

That is what I was thinking as well.

My BMW 650 X-Challenge was like that as well. Look at both fork cap adjusters. I bet one is for compression, the other is for rebound.

First thing I did was go out to my 07 and looked and sure enough I have a small screw in the middle of that nut in the pic( I knew I adjusted it once but you guys had me freaking out.) So there is a fork difference between the years (06, 07, 08)besides color.:confused:

What I’m wondering is how many other models have the same shock and could it be a mistake at the mother ship. :confused:

Just spoke with Les of LTR suspension. He suspects he can retrofit an adjustable base valve on the 08' bikes. He has a set of 45 Zokes on hand to scavenge parts. If you are interested give him a call.

Any Euro members on here that can verify whether or not their 08' 610's have the compressions adjustments? Be interesting to know.

It might be the way KTMs were dampning on one side and compression on the other what does the manual say

I didnt see any compression adjustment for the rear shock either. :prof:
I thought I have read the shock has it. Your forks do not have the adjusters on the bottom?

My buddy bought a '08 TE 610 last week. Went to the desert with him to break it in few days ago. Got down in the sand to adjust the forks, but there was just a great big nut like in the picture.

Took a quick look at the shock and couldnt find any compression adjustment either.

We are going riding again this weekend, i'm gonna take a closer look at things.

Anyway--it does appear that the '08 TE610 in the US doesnt have compression adjustment on the bottom of the forks.

Sorry I'm getting a bit confused here. Trust me it ain't hard for me to do. :bonk:

Your location says Sweden, so I assume you have a Euro version 08' TE610. However, you say you went to the desert :prof: and then mention the US model not having the adjusters, which I'm already convinced of. I'm trying to determine if the Euro-release models have it and we do not, which has been the case at times with features/options for other manufacturers' models.

Thanks

The shock has the compression on top, high and low speed, and the rebound on the bottom. The link could be turned wrong towards the chain and therefore you overlooked it.

Why in the world any manufacturer would build a bike with a hi/lo compression shock and no adjustment in the fork is beyond me. It has to be a mistake I say. :prof:

Round one

I got a call from my dealer today and he wants a email stating how I was lead to believe the bike would have the compression and rebound on the shock and how disappointed I was to find the shock doesn’t have it.

Then he is going to send this to Husky USA and they will send it to Italy.

More when I know more.

      Long story short I bought this 2011 WR300. The thing is mint, looks brand spanking new. The thing ran like a top, but only had one problem, a low idle. I was to lazy to fix it and just dealt with the fact that I always needed to keep a little bit on the throttle. My third ride on it, I took it to the florence dunes and the top end burnt up. I have just finished fixing it and all I need to do is break it in. I need to adjust the idle first though, and don't know if I'll have the idle too high until it starts. I don't want to hurt the motor on a fresh rebuild and want some opinions on what to do. Do you think it will be fine? How many turns out should I set the carb just to be safe?
      Any response helps

      Just bought a used 2017 Husqvarna FC450. It's my 1st EFI bike so I'm hoping someone can help me out with this issue.
      After starting the bike cold and idling for about a minute or two, it blows a puff of blue smoke from the exhaust pipe if I roll the throttle. It also does this if I stop to talk to a riding buddy on a trail or on the side of the track, let it idle, and then start out on track again. After revving it once the blue smoke is gone but riding buds have told me they smell and occasionally see a puff of blue smoke when following me - not a constant stream just a puff and then it's gone for a while. I'm talking to myself over trying to locate the cause of this as a leak-down test shows no issue. 
      Bike history
      Bought used with 70 hours on it. 
      Original owner had an FMF header and tailpipe on it which he kept. He sold it to me with the stock pipe. He never had it remapped for the FMF pipe
      Started it's life in Atlanta GA 
      Now mostly ridden at sea level
      He told me he used mineral-based 10w-40 Yamalube oil. The manual calls for 10w-50 Ester-based synthetic - which the bike is now running. 
      This is what I've tried so far:
      Leak-down test produced only a 3-5% loss.
      No bubbles in the coolant with the cap off
      No air leak at the exhaust pipe
      No leak at intake
      Barely, barely noticeable hiss when I remove the oil fill cap - but again not enough to lose any more than 5% pressure during the leak-down test.
      Wouldn't matter but checked the valve clearances while the valve cover was off. They were in spec.
      No loss of power
      No milky engine oil from a coolant leak
      No loss of engine oil as seen at the engine oil level window - never needed to add oil between changes
      Talked to someone who builds motors for a living and he said "all KTM/Husqvarna's do it especially when cold because the EFI delivers more fuel on startup as opposed to running at operating temperature". I guess I can see that but why does the bike blow blue smoke at operating temperature then if I pull off the trail or track for 1 minute to ask one of my riding buds something? I'm not letting it idle for minutes at a time. 1-2 minutes tops. Is this just normal for KTM/Husqvarna/4-stoke racing bikes?? Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Former bikes where 2-strokes (CR250, RM125) and a 1993 DR350 which I could've let idle for 20 minutes an not seen blue smoke - but that was a carbed bike. I've always known if a 4-stroke is smoking blue it's burning oil and you shouldn't keep riding it. So I'm a bit concerned about whipping it around the track or taking it out a few miles on trails.

      As the title suggests, I've been debating the idea of throwing in a high compression piston. It will bump the compression in my 2014 KTM 350 XC-F from 13.5:1 to 14:1. First and foremost my main question is, because I live under 1000 ft and usually run 97 octane REC gas, will I have to change the fuel I run or not? Also, will I have to change out the cams to aftermarket and re-time the whole motor and ignition? I guess I really don't know what to expect so any advice will definitely help! Attached below is a photo of the bike I plan on putting it in.
