20 Most Recent 2008 Husqvarna TE 450 Questions & Answers


Hi, Rod engine "BOG" is mainly caused by a rich air and lean fuel condition but it can also be caused by a lean air and rich fuel condition this situation rarely occurs and is only caused by the misinformed weekend warrior that owns a toolbox. If the bike has been sitting for months or years you will have to completely disassemble the carburetor and submerge the parts (except rubber parts) in "Carburetor Dip" It usually comes in a gallon bucket with a wire mesh basket that can be purchased at any automotive store. If it is not the above scenario then the following explanation will apply.
The more you open your throttle the more vacuum you are creating in your carburetor venturi and your intake manifold. When you are operating at higher RPM any unmetered air that leaks into your system can become more obvious.
Unmetered air is the air that is getting into your system after the fuel has been delivered. If you have unmetered air getting into Suzuki Raider 150 your system between the butterfly/slide of the carburetor and the cylinder head this will create a lean condition.
All of the rubber components of the fuel system like vacuum hoses and intake manifold that you mount the carburetor to are made of rubber. If none of these components has been changed they are more than likely highly degraded and probably cracked in places to allow unwanted-unmetered-contaminated air into the combustion chamber. Check all of your vacuum lines and vacuum plugs for carburetor synchronization. The vacuum plugs are in the head just after the rubber intake manifolds. The petcock has a vacuum line as well as part of the emission system.
1. Check the intake manifold for fissures.
2. Ensure the bands used to tighten the manifolds down on the intake are secure and have not bound up the manifold.
3. Make sure air box fittings are not warped and fit completely over the carburetor.
Your airbox is metering air and is the first step in the process of consuming air and fuel. The system requires the resistance of the air filter in order to get the proper vacuum to "SUCK" the fuel out of the float bowl and create the proper venturi effect.
Improper mounting and sealing of the airbox will create a small lean effect. This might seem like no big deal but you are inviting dust and debris in your engine that is doing slow damage by not having proper fitment. Fix it so you know it's not contributing to your issue. Pick the low-hanging fruit first.
Do not go and start adjusting anything at this point. It ran fine before. There is something wrong with the assembly or a component. Do not adjust your floats. Get it back to where it was. The moment you start tweaking everything is the moment you lose OEM settings which are a must-have for fine-tuning and maximum performance.
Fine-tuning your carburetor and multi carb syncing come at the very end following the proper procedure established by the Carburetor Gods.

Hi, Anonymous the vast majority of service, parts fiche, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee of $15 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available and some were never printed in English. The Indian and Philippine markets are usually in E-book format only, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. If there is no $ sign after the manual link it is free to download.

Hi, Lummy and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery must have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
2. Faulty alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Faulty main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Faulty system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Faulty ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Faulty CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Faulty neutral, side stand or clutch lever safety switch.
10. Fuel tank empty
11. Fuel tank contaminated with ethanol sludge.
12. Water or dirt in the fuel system, or clogged filter.
13. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
14. Faulty fuel pump.
15. Faulty pressure regulator.
16. Faulty or clogged fuel injectors.
17. Lean angle switch is faulty or needs adjustment.

Backfiring when you let off the gas indicates a lean condition. You probably need to remove and clean your carb, particularly the pilot jet.

2 stroke or four stroke? If 4, use 20-50, if 2 use appropriate oil for 2 stroke.

the resevoir comes ready to install. Just unbolt the old one, bolt on the new one, fill, and bleed the brakes.

This is a pritty specialist job that requires some specialist tools(compressor,rattle gun,impact sockets,etc to name a few) without them you will really struggle.Plus then theres the issue of bleeding the cartridges(i'm assuming that it has upside down forks as you dont give make model Husky mabey?)before setting the fluid levels.
My best advice is don't try this without a workshop manual & the tools I mentioned or you will struggle
Sorry I guess thats not the answer you really wanted to hear.

I was just fighting this on husqvarna. I re-set the brake by fitting the cover tilted to the front, jiggling the chain brake handle to engage it with the brake sprocket. Once engaged, push handle back to unbraked position while bearing down on the cover. You'll feel the click as it locks back to unbraked position.

2008 Husqvarna... | Answered on Nov 29, 2009


does it push start? if it does.... how much voltage do you get from your battery? you should have a minimum of 12.6v, 13v would be excellent....12v is probably not enough...either trickle charge up your battery if it isn't more than three years old or buy a new one, you might have a cell going bad in the battery you have.

you want to set you SAG which should be around 100 to 110 mm

to check.....with a friend
with bike upright on it on it wheels........no stands or straps take a measurement from the rear axle straight up to the fender and make a mark on the fender so you use the same exact spot, record this measurement.

put on all you riding gear, all of it!!!!!! and sit in your riding position with your feet on the pegs or as mush of your weight as possible on the bike......buddy needed.........take and record measurement from same location

now whats the difference between these 2 measurements....this is your sag, convert inches to mm by multiplying # with 25.4
1.25 inches = 31.75mm

now loosen and adjust your spring preload to achieve that measurement.
YOU MAY ALSO NEED STIFFER OF SOFTER SPRING BASED ON YOU WEIGHT AND RIDING STYLE

I believe they're the same as my 05 sm 450 r which is .004 intake and .006 exhaust.

2008 Husqvarna... | Answered on Sep 18, 2009


Try this before you pull the forks apart.Get some camera film.About 6 inches long.Cut off the notched area on the side.Cut the end at 45%.Now,push the cut end up into the fork seal.With a sawing action,slide the film all the way around the seal.When you get the feel of it you can feel tiny bits of grit that let the seals leak.This will stop the leak 9 times out of 10.When you feel the grit,pull the film out to remove the dirt,wipe film clean and start again.Hope this helps

2008 Husqvarna... | Answered on Aug 01, 2009


get some proof in writing from the retailer noting the issue for future ref.

2008 Husqvarna... | Answered on Apr 06, 2009


Why do you think the valves need adjusted if only 500 miles on the engine? Your bike is fuel injected. Chances are 99.5% that any problems with how the motor starts and runs is the fuel injection system. If the bike was new in 2000, then it has been sitting a Very, Very long time. Gas in the tank evaporates and gums things up. Get the fuel injection system thoroughly cleaned and the problems will probably disappear.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!
