About 7k. A lot of that was last year and on the road. Now I'm never on the road and the miles have slowed down. All day in the woods is 50/60 miles and I'm lucky to get that once a week. I need to ride more! Yes, the bike still looks good, but don't be fooled, it gets ridden hard off road! I just clean it after every ride and fix what ever needs to be fixed. Its a great bike that's never let me down!


Life is good!

Thanks 1lunger!! Makes me want to change my plastics to the white/red. I'm definitely debating to keep or sell, but your pics are making me think that I should keep it.

The red & white is sharp! I do however like blue & yellow.
Keep it! You'll never replace the 610 unless it's with another 610 & if you do, get an FI model! Don't get me wrong, the carb'd bikes are awesome, but FI is so nice!! I've read a lot about performance modifications on the 630. You really need to do them to get the bike running right, but very little about the FI 610 is documented. I'm finding that all the mods guys are putting on the 630 really help the 610 too. I think because the 610 was pretty good out of the box w/ just a slip on and PU, not many look any farther. I ride proof that the FI bikes can be made better!

That's the TR, not the TE. Different critter for a different purpose.

Funny how everyone immediately bitches about how horrible a bike will be on trails that's not intended for trail use.

Few photos

I thought I would post up a few photos after my recent farkle session I had with the bike. I also wanted to show How I routed my Barnett Clutch cable for anyone thats looking to replace the stock cable.








Heres how I routed the Clutch Cable. It seems to work the best with the lest amount of binding. Also, It has a straight exit out of the clutch lever perch with the setup.




Thanks guys,

Mark

G'day all, anybody had issues with the switch block. I have no headlights , as in low and high beam. Can get the high beam on the flick switch at the front, indicators, no horn. Seam to have power coming into the switch but nada coming out from the headlights and horn. I pulled it apart to give it a clean but still no go. Looks like i will have to pony up for a new one.
$200.00 at our local dealers, i asked if that was for the complete switch and headlight, nah he laughed, just the switch block.

Yeaah had some shit with my red button - high/low beam - had off in mud and was some ingress. Had it open and cleaned it ... very finicky. Still not 100%. I use an aerosol switch cleaner and if you can get a contact pencil cleaner is also good - it has an abrasive retractable tip that is made up out of glass fibres that cleans up contacts.

While I am interested in the pre-filter mod the general poor design of the 610 airbox still worries me. It is really vulnerable to water ingress through the mesh and the poor seal around the edge. I wonder what that Outerwares material is??? Some kind of Gortex fabric I guess?

Anyway I am still tempted to see if one can eradicate the airbox and route an intake to under the seat or upper side cover with a Uni filter pod on it.

Go to EHSracing.com they should tell you what it is made of. Give the guy a call he's very helpful.

Just found this.

They look pretty nice. I was looking at the Pirelli Scorpion MT90 but I might have to take a look at these as well.

My 606s are great for about 600 miles then quickly drops off . I cant afford the 6 to 800 mile tire change anymore. They claim the scouts are a 5 to 8000 mile tire.

Working on installing my Leo Vince silencer. Spent probably a couple hours with a piece of 320 grit dressing the edges tonight, then mixed up some epoxy to fill the porosity in edges of the thick sections where it actually gets bolted to the bike. Anyone else do that, or am I the OCD king?
