08 TE610. 11,000 miles on original chain, 7 clicks.
06 SM610 just replaced at 4600mi with 11 clicks and no wear on the reed valve.
Just put it together.
Hope it starts....and does not leak any oil!
'06 TE610. Got to 13500km before it just started rubbing on the reed valve.
Just curious as to where the replacement cam chains are being procured from, I will be keeping one on hand.
Are they identical DID chains just with different packaging?
Any Cafe Husky endorsed suppliers of said chains?
Thank you in advance.
Dunno, it looked the same to me. The new one was shorter.
At 3,500 miles, I had the valves adjusted and the CCT checked on my '08 SM610. I was at 4 clicks out. I would be willing to bet, however, that I am the slowest 610 rider on Cafe Husky, so I expect to get better than average lifespan out of mine . I don't plan to check it again until my next valve check at 7,000 miles (currently at just over 5K).
Well, it does not leak anything but I did have a tough time starting it.
Seems I once again tried to start it w/o letting the carb fill up and flooded it with the a/c pump.
Anyway, it runs nice and quiet now but it seems a little lean on the pilot with the 45 pilot and cold weather.
My first 610 had the first 1 changed at 21000km's because the dealer didn't realise they were meant to change it at 10000km's! It made it but just (they said) but ever since then it's been replaced every 10000km's. The chain they use (Husqvarna) is a pretty poor design and surprising they haven't used a roller chain.
For the small cost the dealer charges over a normal service I just get it done when it's due. I dont' think it's worth the hastle of risking a full rebuild.
2007 SM610, 3800kms. I checked mine on the weekend 6 Clicks.
09 sm610 just checked@ 4100miles 6clicks out.
Checked mine today on my 08' 610 with 18500km on the clock and it was out to 4 clicks.I was expecting more to be frank but im one the lucky owners i guess...
How do you know when to adjust the MCCA?
When it make noise I guess.
My '08 TE was gone @ 4k miles. I've gotten 12 out of the replacement so far.
I am at 8500 miles and 8 clicks. I got all the stuff to replace it. Will do so in the next 500 miles to coincide with the next oil change and valve adjustment. I spent about 4000 miles going from 7 clicks to 8.
16,000 plus, got to sounding like it needed it The 07 SM 610 was running fine though. Runs just great now, thanks Dave, Brian and Bill @ BMP
The entire point to this thread was to possibly find a pattern.. in the hope that if there was any issue at all it might be addressed. I certainly do not see any pattern at all and the life span of those things seems incredibly random.
About 5k miles but that was a hard 5k miles of track days and off road.
2006 TE, changed it 6000 miles at 8 clicks out (was about to head out on a 2000 mi Baja ride)
Has anyone had (or believe) to have a better cam chain life from a MCCT or cutting the spring to reduce the tension?
MCCT was a must back when I owned a DRZ400, everyone had to have one. I'm not sure why the Husky would be any different...
