Dave at suspension matters beerwah . When we dropped off he said he had just done a few 630's the week before.

He is a mad keen rider and does the work himself , has a good rep so ? He is also doing marios n wades bikes too .

Say hi to Dave for me. I may be sending him my Yamaha IT 175 sticks to rebuild.

Said gday for you Gordan - he seems to know your family well .

New set up seems good -bike is taller, i am right on my tippy toes so going to be tricky pulling up on uneven ground but should be right - haven't hit the dirt yet but feels nice balanced on the tar . Got a good run happening next weekend so looking for to that .

Saddle time at last

The fun part of riding is returning and the bike is running great after all last years "issues". Let the Mods begin

Change the rear to 47T to get rid of the doughy feeling, makes big difference. Power and accel is about where i want now, rolls up 130kph much better

I wrapped the exhaust in kevlar from the twin header junction to the slipon joint, takes away that "cooked leg" feeling and cooled the shock resevoir too. Added the optional baffle to the barrett slipon and gained some more bottom end and pretty well got rid of any decel pop too. Had a trailtech on the dr for lighting and will probably go the same way for the 610. Any other options for lighting?

When funding allows a scotts steering damper is on the cards.

Just need the rain to bugger off so i can get more dirt time and less mud clean up time....

Lizard.

Oh, and i ditched the DR650 username bit, now its just, like, nevermind. all i could think of that sounded funny...

yeah me too

hey man,

i just got mine back today after a top end engine rebuild. also new suspension, heaps of new stuff like bearings and clutch and other bits. also "the power up" mod. it sounds good in the garage, but my front yard was not quite enough to let me check if there's a difference or not.

and don't ask me how much.

i'm a sucker for these kind of toys.

Faaark!

So the last few rides even though the bike has been running great (see post above) but I kept getting this weird "hot fluid" slpash on my leg.

So being bored with all the rain today I went investigating and found the front valve cover had an oil leak. Easy fixed, I'll have that sorted in an hour...

Strip down time. everthing was going to plan right up till i began removing the tank. Unclip one connector and the balance tube, readust the tank for easier access to the 2nd clip. Small "cracking" sound is heard. I knew exactly what it was. you guessed it, the elbow connector for the high pressure fuel hose.

So now i'm on the avoid new fuel pump costs and fix this damn thing. Seems quite a few have done and there is a bit of a problem with these connectors and there is a good write up on it on Cafe Husky. Has anyone had this issue and repaired it with local shops, I'm thinking performance shops or hose/fitting specialist might be able to help.

I wish it wasn't Sunday so i could start getting it sorted, but I don't mind a challenge Except when it stops me riding...

Lizard.

Nearly fixed

I've nearly fixed the fuel tank issue. The solution is cheap and adds some robustness to those connections. Should get out of it for less than $100. I'll post up a pic when its done and ride tested.

Very similar fix to the ones shown in the global TE610 thread, just using a local auto hose shop on the nortside of BrisVegas - Bike shops just looked at me funny - what youve never seen one of these before You do know EFI bikes have em right, CYA......

Cheers Lizard

Gave the 610 a good work out in the glasshouse today - suspension work well worth the dollars.

Front was handling big holes and bouncing off rocks very nicely and lighter shock spring helped with better traction a lot .

Wade had his done too - a different set up to me as he a fair bit heavier and is extremely happy .

Bensl , i got set up for me 70kg plus gear, average trail rider .

I had front revalve ( got rid of the sudden dive the top 100mm has - some sort of mid valve work so basically it is more progressive and much much smoother ) .

I had a new lighter .58 spring and revalve also . Bit over 700 but i brought bike and would have been 100 less if i stripped forks n shock .

Wade 90 ish kg had heaveir front springs revalve and shock revalve - that was 680 from memory, again would have been 100 less if we stripped suspension !

And new seals included

David of suspension matter beerwah did the work - very happy with service and work .
