Question about 2008 Husqvarna TE 510

1 Answer

Spark problem I noticed that the idle is a little rough. When I pull the spark plug wire out away for the plug a little, the engine revs higher. Put it all the way back and engine idles lower. If I pull out completely away, then engine dies. Does anyone know what would cause stronger idle when the cable is not completely plugged on the plug? Thanks

Maybe when you are pulling the wire just a little you are making a better connection, make sure your wires are all in good shape, it may be just loose

Had a noise like a lifter pulled the plug wire off the front cilinder and the noise was gone


Now, the question is "what happens if you put the wire back on"? If you have put the wire back on and the engine is running correctly, the only thing I can think of is that the wire wasn't on good to begin with. What you were hearing was the spark popping under the spark plug cap. I used to set the initial timing on an engine using the pop of the spark plug. Simply turn the ignition switch on with the spark plug out of the head but lying on it. Rotate the engine and watch for the timing mark on the crankshaft. Notice the position of the timing mark when you heard the spark plug "snap".

If the spark plugs you use has the screw on ends where the plug wire connects, make sure you keep these tight.

Good Luck

2000 honda 1100 shadow spirit. Rough idle, little power.


Replace the spark plug caps and try again. On Honda's the cap is often part of the wire (a dealer part) NGK makes some inexpensive plug caps about $5 each. They should OHM out to 5000 anything above or below and you need to replace them. This should fix the problem.

On power when pulling away


You probably have a fouled spark plug or bad spark plug caps.Try plugs first. This is the cheapest thing to try to fix the problem. spark plug caps should be 5000 ohm . If they read higher or lower than that replace them. NGK makes cheap replacements. If they are part of the wire you may have to get from dealer.

Carb settings


Hi Stephen,
Its simple , just remove the air filter clean it and check the spark plug and reset it to its right specs the gap.
Locate the air-mixture screw on the carb and warmup thebike's engine.
Turn the air-mixture screw in tothe last , but very slowly as to not damage it as its very sharp at the end of it, at this point increase the idling a little thn turn the air-mixture screw outwards 1 and a half turns and you will notice the difference in the engine , it may rev a little higher and be stable , here you will have to reduce the idling speed and again try to readjust the air-mixture screw outwards a little or inwards alittle depends how the engine responds.
Hope this will help!
