    My bike doesn't want to go into neutral. I have the updated shift rod I'm putting in tonight. I also have a noticeable rattle that goes away when the clutch is pulled in. 4500 miles on my bike. CJBrown, does the glove and impact work to tighten the clutch basket? I figured impact will remove but I wasn't sure about retorqing it back on. I will comb the back pages and see if I can find who is producing the new spring cups. Thanks!

    Last night I went to change out the clutch rod and it had already been updated. I was replacing it because my bike doesn't want to go into neutral at a stop. I also frequently get false neutral lights. Since the clutch rod was done I decided to change the oil. The previous owner put in royal purple 10-40. I put in 20-50 Valvoline and the neutral problem is noticeably better but still not perfect.(still some clutch drag) Are these bikes really sensitive to oil type? I saw a thread recommending golden spectro 10-60. Suggestions?

    You know, I can't remember on the basket nut, I may have just put it in gear and stepped on the brake. Or maybe I stuck a screwdriver in the gear. Mine wasn't that tight. Or maybe I did that putting it back on. Sorry. Maybe track down Indy's instructions.

    Clutch drag has always been an issue with this one. If you blip the throttle and then drop it to neutral that works pretty well.
    IMO 10-60 is too heavy. I've always run amsoil 20-50 and virtually no drag. I tried that same oil in my new GSW and it didn't work so well so I went back to Rotella t6 (5-40). Since it's so popular I decided to change out the husky with it too. Seems to work the same, same clutch drag and everything. LOL. $20 at walmart. :)

    I think it's less a function of oil and just the clutch basket spinning in there. Try the throttle blip or hit neutral before you roll to a stop.

    Getting into neutral while sitting dead still has always been an issue with Husky gearboxes, mine takes some rocking to get it into neutral without jumping to 2nd.
    The easy way is to click into neutral just before you actually stop.

    I run Castrol RS 4T 10W50 btw, it gives me the best oil life of anything I've run, you can tell when the oil starts breaking down in these bikes by the way it shifts.

    I purchased one of the first new 1999 TE610e dual sports. At 1,200 miles the valves were clacking. Way out of adjustment. The dealer found the two fowl pin holes for the oil pump were drilled too deep and the oil pump star housing turned cutting off the oil to the head. I refused to take the bike back. The first problem was the half moon on the shifter guide for the pawns it was too small of an arc. I never got to ride the 610 off road the dealer purchased the bike back. I had words with fast by ferrachi too the man himself.
    Thank god I didn't sell my left kickers.

    What does everyone think about changing the springs when you change the washers? Also how many people have changed the clutch springs when changing the washers? Also I thought I had read they had updated the springs and were a bit beefier now.

    I did not replace the springs. AFAIK there was never an issue with the springs. [shrug]

    No spring change here. Just finished the western portion of the Trans America Trail on my 630, including the return trip via Interstate. No problems at all whether on the trail or at 75-80 on the Interstate. I have Indy's spring cups.
