My first post and it's a question. I've tried searching the forum till my eyes hurt [really!] so it looks like I'll have to ask.
I'm after a single cylinder bike that's going to remind me of my long gone Honda Dominator. It'll be a second bike alongside my 1100GS.
Frankly, my heart's set on a TE610 '06 but a couple of issues are holding me back. I'd appreciate any comments on these points from more experienced hands.
1. The TE610 owners manual I've downloaded calls for a new conrod every 6 000miles. Since the bike is described on a Husky dealers site as a "Road legal, off road style motorcycle, designed primarily for the road but capable of moderate off road use" isn't a major engine overhaul a bit out of place?
The manual also calls for a new timing chain at the same interval.
I believe there have been some amendments by Husqvarna to the service schedule but I've not been able to find out what they are.
2. The same manual calls for the valves to be adjusted to .002" - both in and exhaust. That correct?
I hope you can give me the answers I want to hear, because if you do it's going to be real hard staying away from that Husky dealer.
