Instead of mashing pennies, is it possible to access the crank/stator nut from the other side like in this pic?

BTW:A few DRZ's have had similar issues with the primary nut, hence my fix on it.

Well, I thought I'd revive this one because I just went from what was to be a glorious 5 days in the Olympic mountains




To this




Because of this




This happened at about 3700 miles & luckly I wasn't 50 miles up in the hills somewhere. I had checked the nut on my 2nd oil change but didn't know to stuff a penny in the gears & so I did the best I could with it in gear. It seemed tight to me. I thought the bottom end had been a lot noisier lately especially since my daughter thought it would be fun to put the garden hose in the exhaust & fill 'er up . The fix only cost 65 cents & she runs smoother & quieter than ever but I really should have checked it properly in the first place. The nut went about a 1/8 turn past where it was originally so obviously it was nowhere near tight enough.

Sorry to hear of your badluck, thankfully you weren't in a really isolated area...hopefully others will learn from your misfortune and make sure the nut is checked. When mine failed I tightened the nut and it ran fine afterwards. Thankfully Jim made me check it to be sure the Woodruff key was intact and he was right, once you get the rumbles you definately have a sheered key.

Eek

Hoder,

Too bad about your trip being cut short . . . . Guess it's all part of the adventure. I'll definitely be checking mine for this issue.

Thanks for the reminder.

I thought I had the dreaded "loose nut vib" going on. I felt a unusual vibration and heard a new noise so I checked it out. It turned out to be the forward engine mount bolts were loose and the engine mount bolts (2) on top of the head were completely missing. Checked and tightened eveything and she's smooth as butter, well maybe not that smooth, but she sounds good.
Look over your bike!

i dont own a 610, but i can give you guys a common tip for motorcycles..instead of mashing pennies ( ) or unbolting other things.... just stuff a rag inbetween the gears.. its that easy.with a rag jammed in there, the gears wont turn, and you can tighten... or put the rag on the other side, and you can loosen.... and theres zero chance of hurting the gears or anything.this is common for clutch changes on other bikes.... it also lets you use a torque wrench instead of an impact.

Is this nut still a problem on the 07's?
Just picked mine up a few weeks ago and would like to head off any potential problems

I don't recall reading of any 07' bikes having this issue.

Another one

I just picked up (another) used 06 TE610 with 1900 miles on it. The first thing I did was ride it home after the purchase, rip it apart and torque the nut down. Sure enough, I got a good 1/8th of a turn more out of it.

Just looking for an update - any evidence that this affects '07's, or does it seem to be an '06 issue?

There has yet to be any reports of issues with the 07's.

I ripped my 07 open when I got it to check... It didn't budge.

My shame for all to see

When I got my 06 TE610 the first thing I did was to torque down the nut, but it was bugging me that I didn't actually check if I had sheared the woodruff key and got things out of sync, so today I decided to take a look-see.

First, I stuffed a rag between the gears, but all I got was a shredded rag and bits all over the place.

Second, I tried two pennies. One for each gear (clutch and counterbalancer). I mangled both of them completely and still didn't get the nut loose.

Finally, I stuck a screwdriver between the two gears. And guess what, I broke a tooth.





So let that be a lesson to all you boys and girls - don't stick hard stuff between the gears!
Oh! And I broke the screwdriver too!

Perhaps an impact gun would have broke it loose without placing as much leverage on the gears...aluminum also suggested in the manual I think, would be the next step up from the pennies. Sry about the mishap and hope you get it sorted
