on mine I get right at 100mph in top gear down near Albuquerque...up here at my altitude, I need to tuck in good to make 92. I live at 7240ft. Mine (I think) is 15~47

That was my experience, 6th topped out below 80, 5th went to 94.

I've geared down, so I want to go 'back up' for a long highway. Is stock 15 or 16?

I do not know if there ever was one, or if someone made one work, but I do not see where this is room to mount one without interfering with the light fixture. On a DRZ400 there is lots of open space below the headlamp fairing so it is no problem for a weld-on WER damper. Not true on a 610 (at least '06+).

I went with an underbar damper (HDB in my case) on my '07 so I could raise the bars as high as I wish and keep the area above clear also.

Thanks!

2008 te610i for sale (only 1,600 miles, no dirt)

I've spent time adding some key upgrades adventure riders will appreciate. Sadly, the new family has kept me off the bike and dirt. All 1,600 miles were on pavement. The engine was broken in properly and all the service has been done by the dealer on time (only an oil change and tune so far).

here is a link to the craigslist posting with pics (hard to include on this forum)

http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/mcy/1886727333.html

$6,500

Some key dual sport upgrades:

Scorpion dual sport tires
Highway Dirt Bike Hand Guards
Uptight skidplate
Renazco custom seat (hard to get!)

Lost rear tail light again

I lost my rear tail light again yesterday.


This will be my third tail light.

Anybody else have this problem?

Any suggestions?

Seat attachment screw upgrade / issues?

I have a Renazco seat that seems a bit thicker than some. I've trimmed the area around the seat attachment pin, but it still does not want to bite properly.
Even with the stock saddle this was really tight.

Anybody tried a longer pin, or an alternative attachment? The only thing keeping the rear of the seat in place this weekend apart from my shifting butt was the front strap of my Ortlieb bags, which were strapped down tight.

Apart from that, I'm pretty happy with the Renazco. Put on 500 miles last weekend, and 555 miles this weekend (almost 600 if I count Friday night). This weekend was about 1/3rd dirt roads of varying quality including some class 4, 1/3rd bad / bumpy minor paved roads, and 1/3rd good 2-lane.
Considering that the Renazco is really only 1.5 butt cheeks wide, it works really well. I was starting to suffer some discomfort after yesterday's 320 miles which was a lot bumpier and slower than today's as the majority of it was dirt roads, but all aches were gone by the time we got back on the bikes this morning.

I ran a 3/8 drill bit thru it including the plastic and used a 3/8 bolt with a nylock nut. Don't over tighten or it'll crack the plastic, just tight enough to hold the seat on.

610 value

I would like input from those of you that are more up to date on the 610.

Found an 08 610 stock with 3400 miles on it in very clean condition. What would you say that is worth? Asking price is $5000

Seems like a decent deal. There's one in SFO with 1/2 the miles and they want $6500 for it. (which seems way high to me, I paid 6500 in Jan 09 for a bike with 126 miles on it.)

That's a good price. Any accessories?
