I finally saw the light and picked up a used 2007 TE610. Being new to Husky, could you guys help me out with a few questions? Yes I have searched.
1 - Quite a metalllic ping on idle. Is this normal? I have 3600kms and will check the valves as soon as I learn how.
2 - Lots of drivetrain play. I've ajusted the chain to spec, but the on/off throttle transition seems harsh and abrupt. Not smooth and quite a "clunk". If this is normal, if it is I can adapt no worries, just don't want to hurt the bike.
3 - Brakes do not engage until halfway down the lever and are very loud "ie - squeaky whine/wail" under hard braking. Check pads? Adjust freeplay on lever?
4 - Clutch lever freeplay. Can I tighten this on the block? I want the engagement closer to the lever.
Thanks for helping out a noob, I've had 2 KLR's a KLX and a DRZ in the past. I know that the 610 will be more "hands on" as far as maitenance but worth it!
