No, it doesn't.

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.
The difference between the 610 and 630 is mostly in the top end. You will need to spend a few $ on some mods to get the 630 running to its full potential. Once you've done that, it's a great bike with a tad more HP than the 610. The trade off is, more $ spent to get it running right, dual cans ( more $ for aftermarket slip ons ). All in all, the 610 and 630 are great bikes and you'll love either one! The DR is a solid bike, but it's also heavy and like the XRL, has not changed much in the last 10 years or more. You will not get the high end components (brakes, shocks, FI proformance, etc... on the DR that you will on the TEs. I'm not sure if you get the same deals we get in the states, but BMW offers really good financing and dealers can sell for lower price if they want. The TE 630 was selling for just over $6k last year during the fall and the sumo version was even less. They come with a 2 year warranty also. If you can buy new and get a good deal go for it!!

Thanks. I used to bounce off the limiter more frequently than I do now, maybe I just learned not to abuse the bike.

Thanks. I thought I had the right amount in there, the manual said 2.11 quarts. A Motorex quart probably isn't a US quart, is it? D'oh.

My 2011 came with only a one year/unlimited miles warranty in the US. I think you get two years most everywhere else though. Since OP lives in Australia this is probably why you stated that but just clarifiying for others.

Motorex comes in liter bottles not quarts.
2 liters does equal 2.11 quarts

That part I understand, I mentioned it in my original post, I was (temporarily) worried that I had mixed up US and imperial quarts.

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?
Funny how everyone has their own thoughts on tires. I had a rear Rally Raid for a short time. Hated it. Unstable on the road, poor traction everywhere. Traded it for a 12 pack at around 1000 miles. Best deal I every got (the 12 pack that is).

MT43; love it on my smaller bikes, not so much on the 610. I break it loose too much. Trails tires are best when they are sticking, not spinning loose.

T63; OK, It did very well this last week end at the Dessert 100. The course was very muddy and I was impressed by the traction of the T63 in the mud and rocky sections.

Kenda 270, my all time favorite on the rear. I will go back to it. Impressive on the road as well as just about every kind of off road situation I want to be in on my 610.

I run a D606 on the front and I think I'll stick with it.

My $.02, for what it's worth.

You weren't happy with the 606 rear?
I may have to try a 270.

I was wondering about the K270 also. What size are you running, the 4.50 or the 5.10?

Coolant Overflow bottle cloged

So as I am disassembling the bike for a cam chain R&R, I noticed the coolant overflow bottle was clogged. I tried blowing into the tube that connects the overflow to the radiator and I could not push air through it. I unhooked the tube at the nipple on the bottom of the overflow bottle and the nipple had melted shut!! The hose over top of the nipple looked fine.

This nipple is right between the exhaust pies, so I am sure it gets a lot of heat, but it was strange seeing the hose over top of the nipple in good shape, but the nipple itself being melted shut. It is melted the length of the nipple, as I tried to cut little sections off to see if I could find any remaining hole.

Has anyone else seen this?

I am debating whether to fashion an aluminum replacement for the nipple, or just going to a new OEM bottle (if mine is a one off problem). ~4700 miles on the bike. (2006 TE 610)

Mike

PS: I am now visualizing everyone going out to their bike and blowing into the overflow tube.

606 rear and front both great, high mileage also. 980RR rear mediaocre, wide and wore faster than the D606 rear,. 980RR front, massive 70mph wobble. Running T63 front and good for road and FS road. wearing OK so far. D606 is probably my favorite so far, but more expensive, though I would see what the cheaper T63 was like.

I run a MT43 on the rear of my TE450 for some highway, mostly desert and trail riding. Takes all the abuse I can show it. Highway is fine too. Maybe try it on my TE610, but so happy with the D606, probably won't. I try to watch the sales and pick up the D606 on the rare sale well in advance of my date of need.

exactly my experience. I had 908's on front and rear and got rid of them in like 300 miles. The pair were outright scary. I later tried the front by itself with a 606 in back and it was better but never 'good'

my 'go to' setup is 606 rear and mt21 front, I'd like to find the exact same tires, but cheaper
