Why so? DOT only means it will not come apart at 85 MPH. Nothing to do with traction etc.

the new AC10 next to what I thought was a big tire the MT 16. Now the 16 isn't so big. The MT 16 didn't see as much dirt as I had hope due to my back surgery. I did play a bit today and even half used up, it still hooked up like a champ even with street air pressure in it.

Steering Stabilizer

Greetings,
Is anyone running a steering stabilizer with the Safari Tank on a Fuel Injected 610?
The front of the tank looks nearly the same as the stock tank, so I'm assuming it will work..
Cheers,
Bitwrench

I am. There's at least one more fellow on here who does as well, I think.

I love the rear T63 for CO rocks. It sucks in anything wet though. The other advantage to the T63 is the lower rear profile as it makes the 610 more stable at high speed and got rid of the wobble for me. The front T63 is not worth using, good for the street but the knobs are too short for grip offroad.

I will try the pirelli ralley raids next, as I had to put those on my ktm 500 to pass my street legal test, and I think they will be very nice on the 610. Has anyone used them?

AC10 rears don't last very long. I think that a 610 will kill that thing in short order, they don't even last that long on my KDX. The fronts wear much better.

To the other poster, I ran a 908RR (rear) on my 610 before the current setup (Maxxis Desert IT). It was ok. They do not have a ton of edges, and once they start to wear the off-road traction gets bad, especially in the wet. I tossed mine in the fall even though it had plenty of "miles" left in it, because it was useless, especially in mud, wet roots, and wet rocks.

This, combined with the cost, means I will probably not run them again.

Clutch Noise

Hey All, I have a 06 TE 610 and the last time I posted I had an overflow of gas into my engine. I had left the petcock in the on position and apparently filled up the crankcase with gas, I did not know at the time and road to work and back ( about a 24 mile round trip ).
On the way home I noticed a noise, when releasing the clutch, on the clutch side, like a growl.
When I got home I realized what had happened, drained the oil, changed filter ran it and changed the oil one more time.
So now every once and a while when letting the clutch out, the same growl makes happens. When the clutch is fully engaged it does not happen, still pulls strong and otherwise no other problems.
Could the gas in the oil caused issues with the clutch plates or the clutch basket?
I have 9,700 miles on the bike.
Any thoughts would be great.
Thanks!
Michael

I simply used Scott's TE-610 SUB-mount kit.

Okay, I just changed the oil in my '08 for the first time and want to check something with you guys (feel free to comment on my procedure as well). Pulled both drain plugs, drained until empty, put plugs back in, pulled oil filter cover, swapped for a new K&N, put that all back together, filled up with two 1 liter (1.057 quarts) containers of Motorex 10-60. Started it up, rocked it around, rode it a few feet, checked the sight hole... The oil level is toward the bottom of the sight hole. Shut it down and the oil filled up the sight hole. The bike was vertical when I checked the levels.... Do I have too much oil in there or just the right amount?

Not a TE expert, but I'd check the bronze clutch bushing...

I dunno if the gas in the oil had anything to do with it, but it can't have done it any good.

You might have a hair too much oil, but it will push it out. The 610 takes a bit less than two quarts. Check oil cold with bike level and you should have a small bubble at the top of sight glass. Look close and you'll see the hash mark showing the high mark.

tires...

Been running the Kenda K270 with good success including about 800 miles in Colorado and have been quite impressed with the tires. Looks like the rear will last about 3000 miles and front around 5000. Good overall tire for rocks, gravel and road.

Thanks for all the replies really appreciated it. Yeah I don't think I can be arsed with that one... just let that one fly through to the keeper. On my next days off I'm going to go into town. The Husq dealer can get be a ride on the supermoto version of the 630 but he reckons he can also get his hands on a '10 model 610 from another dealer... not sure on price but I think in his email he said it was new.

Are there much differences between the engine in the te610 v te630? I'm also going to go have a ride of a dr650 and see what they are like. I'm actually pretty impressed with the dr650 in theory at least but obviously riding it is another matter so best to go check that out too. Thanks again, Lee.

Does anyone know if the power up resistor plug removes the rev limiter?
