Owen: we can get together and you can ride my 610 if you like. Great pics!
I do need to get my valves adjust sometime this week though.. I've a squeaky one right now.
As for yours & Todds observations.. I can think of times/situations that both of you are right with your descriptions of the 610.
My front suspension is set really nicely.. I'm running 5wt oil & a 140mm air gap.
My rear shock is in need of some work... I think I've just worn it out. I'm debating on sending both ends to slavens or superplush or someone this winter... or instead taking the time to learn far more about suspension than I ever wanted to know
Like Todd mentioned.. our bikes had a noticeable difference in power... but yours is the same as mine so it should be similar? (I've a LEO X3 pipe & JD jet kit in mine).
