07 Husky TE510 Overheating

Help, my 07TE510 boils over in less than 10 minutes of regular 45mph riding.

have engine ice, recent valve adj, Bike runs great until hot. It is AZ but I cant wait for winter. have ordered Y pipe but looking for a TE610 fan Kit.

Any help or ideas wold be appreciated.

Get a higher pressure radiator cap, It will prevent it from boiling longer. The owner of trail tricks told me that. since mine boils over sooner than expected.

Thanks, I will try the cap and the Fyre Jacket. its bad enough when its over 100 outside to start with but the hoses do get hot from the exhaust!

I think there has to be something more going on here..I am no expert by any stretch but it just does not sound right..

I had overheating issues with mine but never at speed, it was always in slow technical sections or long steep climbs when I was using a lot of clutch..

How are you determing that its overheating? If the radiator cap releases which is normal it urps excess intot he coolant recovery tank, correct? (My 05 TE had one). If yours does not have the tank and it urps onto the exhaust like a KTM then your going to THINK it overheated when it is working normal.

How long have you had the bike? How long has this been going on? There is no way that the bike should be boiling over at 45mph. Head gasket? I have never looked at the coolant passages in relation to the combustion chamber.

If your not sure then take it to someone that does. If it keeps overheating its going to damage the engine.

what gear and rpm are you at 45mph? is it just flat street riding?

Only a few months and barely ridden. Just got out of shop for overall checkup, valve adj etc. Bike got very hot and lost fluid ( ice ) from overflow tank. Engine started to crap out etc. let cool and now runs fine but still seems to run hot.

Has IMS Tank, Flatlander rad guards. fluid is circulating through rads well.

Ordered Uptite Y, silicon hoses, fyre wrap...

Dont know where to get a 1.8 radiator cap???

Not happy having the old XRs wait for me...

Just quick dirt road riding through all gears.

no where near race speeds. Sprockets 13F 50R

If you have the original tank, try running with that and see what happens. I hear some of the IMS tanks hang over the engine and can restrict air flow. Hopefully it's something simple. Good luck and keep us posted.

I have heard that as well(IMS tank blocking air) plus buying the fan kit was mentioned, but I don't believe it'll fit with the IMS tank. I know it fits with a Clark, but didn't think it would with the IMS.

have you had a exhaust fitted or anything that might need carby jetted ?? lean = hot engine !

hot start button in correctly ? (not pulled out )...

All looks to be fine, but I will be rejetting also.

I have a '07 TE 510, w/ JD, Y splitter, 4 gal IMS, no rad guards, Engine Ice, std rad cap, run 93 oct gas and do not have issues now. I did when running in tight first gear clutching situations, but the the Y and E Ice, I have not boiled since. Note that my "boil" was first.) the stock cross over tube (rad to rad) burst and 2.) the hose at the overflow tank blew off. Also, I have had the rad cap release a bit of pressure also, but never lost more that 1/2 a cup. Could you have a hose with a hole the only leaks coolant when under pressure (hot)? Let us know how it works out. Also, remember to keep a bit of coolant in the tank to minimize the chance of a steam melt.


Check the water pump

I had the impeller fall off due to a lock nut coming loose.

Same symptoms. Fix it before you blow a head gasket, like I did.

Good luck

Circulation looks very good, Thanks to everyone for the input and sources. I will install all the parts and let you know how it comes out.. Still waiting on the Uptite Y which I think is crucial to my success....

Heres the plan...

Uptite Y...

Silicon Hose kit

Fyre jacket on hoses near exhaust..

Engine Ice or XF+ non boil coolant

Uptite adj air screw and Carb line filters ( This is a Great add-on! )

Fuel injection Line on crossover hose

JD Jetting if needed..

Remove or mill out 50% of the fins on the flatlander Radiator guards

( they are guarding the radiator from the AIR-Flow ) I think this cold be a major heat contributer..

Stick with the IMS tank..

Fan Kit at last resort...

Anything else? :-) Thanks again!

Anything else? :-) Thanks again!

If you've got the 3.9 gallon IMS, the fan kit won't work, unless you make it into a pusher in front of the rad, won't fit as a puller behind the rad. Make sure your jetting is good for your ride altitude. Good luck :busted:

After riding a pretty fast 5th and 6th gear sand road my 09 TE 510 blew the hose that connects the two radiators at the top. She had been running pretty hot ever since new, and during the slower sections of this ride I noticed it slowly filling the overflow tank.

I plan to do desert racing with this bike, so it'll spend a lot more time in top gear in the sand. I am replacing the hose that blew with a heavier hose, as well as the rest of the cooling system hoses. I am worried however that this will just mean that it'll blow at a higher pressure. Could there be a blockage there somewhere? How can I tell if the water pump is working properly without stripping it?

Any help appreciated, Rohan.

      Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Rider Starts his Quest to Defend Cross-Country Rallies World Championship
      March 15, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Pablo Quintanilla will re-start his 2018 international rally racing campaign on March 24 to 29 at the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge in the United Arab Emirates. Working hard towards returning to full competitive fitness following a foot injury sustained during the closing stages of the Dakar Rally, Pablo’s teammate Andrew Short is expected to join the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing squad at the 2018 Merzouga Rally in mid-April.

      With the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge playing host to the opening round of the 2018 FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship, the event in the UAE will see Pablo Quintanilla begin the defence of his FIM Cross-Country World Championship title. Securing eighth overall at the 2018 Dakar Rally in January, the Chilean rally star is already looking forward to a solid return to racing aboard his FR 450 Rally machine.
      Successfully wrapping up his debut participation at the prestigious Dakar Rally with a top 20 result, Andrew Short has been recuperating from a fractured tibia and fibula on his lower right leg. Resuming his training sessions in the middle of March, the American has his eyes set on making a return to racing at the Merzouga Rally on April 15/20, in the dunes of Morocco.
      Celebrating its 28th edition in 2018, the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge is a six-stage-long rally taking place in the southern part of the United Arab Emirates. Kicking off with the traditional Super Special Stage on Saturday, March 24, the event will continue with five more days of racing in the Liwa Desert before competitors reach the finish line inside the Yas Marina circuit on March 29, 2018.

      Pablo Quintanilla: “Abu Dhabi will be our first race after the Dakar and I’m really looking forward to it. It’d be good to start the season carrying the #1 plate on my Husqvarna as the reigning champion. With it being the first race for the new season, it is important for everybody. My goal is to get a good race pace from the beginning in order to be inside the group of leading riders. The season will be long and my plan is to continue improving my pace as the racing goes on. I want to get back my racing speed and also remain strong throughout the event in Abu Dhabi. Taking place in deep sandy dunes, the Desert Challenge is always a tough event and it is also highly probable that we will have to race in high temperatures. It’s going to be a challenge but I’m looking forward to it.”

      Looking for some Wiring Harness, Connections and Installation assistance for installing a Tusk Universal Under the Fender LED Taillight with Brake Light on a Husqvarna 2017 TX300
      The UTFLight comes with a plastic connector that would work with the tusk enduro lighting kit which i'll be removing so that I can plug into the stock harness.
      I've been told the stock harness is the same as what would be included on the TE Model, minus the actual headlight/taillight being present; which is the case for the headlight wiring . it's all there ready to go.  For the taillight/brakelight however there is a bit more to be done.  There are NO wires running to the rear of the bike or within the SubFrame as some have noted
      I'll need to run to existing wires, and could use some guidance for which connectors are needed, if a supplementary harness is required(if so which one) and which wires to connect to on the existing harness.  There is very limited info in the manual (for either bike: TE/TX) or complete color harness diagram with info and connector information anywhere that I could find.
      I also picked up the Tusk Brake Switch Banjo bolt for the Brembo brakes (two wire, bullet connectors) - https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/docs/Brake switch instructions.pdf 
      On the Brake side under the front/bottom of gas tank near radiator there is an existing connector (I think for radiator fan) and from it, two unused wires, I would say for tapping into the existing harness.  1 Solid Brown, 1 Yellow/Red - 
      Shifter side, near the bottom rear of tank I found taped up cylinder style connector (Someone can enlighten me) i think switch wires ? maybe some terminator,  each with the same color wire in as out.  One is Gray/Black and the other White/Black
      Under the cdi box is a three plug connector with two wires, 1 Brown and 1 White, third unused- i was hopeful this could be the tail light connector but am unsure
      Help on harness, connector names /types and setup is very much appreciated
