I finally found a dual spaot mirror that I like. The Ram mount mirror from Double Take mirror. It folds out of the way for off road nicely and I can actually see what is behind me. :

Plug???

Found the plug. Feel like an idiot. Goes to the radiater fan, DUH. Had put the radiaters in a box out of the way, out of site out of mind. Thanks for your help, mystery over.

Does anyone know off hand what the stator output is on an 09 TE610 and how much of that the FI uses up?

Edit:. Looks like it might be 240w? Still curious how much of that the FI system eats up?

Can someone give me an authoritative reason why it's mechanically "bad" to multiple downshift without engaging the clutch in each gear?

I never heard of that, and if someone told me that, I would scoff. I've done that on every bike, every day, for 35 years. I know exactly how transmissions work and I can think of no reason why that's a bad thing.

I seem to recall it's closer to 350 watts. I can run a heated jacket, heated grips and a 55w headlight and still show full charge. My old KTM640A had a carb and 200w alternator. I could run only 2 out of those three items. Sorry that I don't know how much the FI takes. Hope that helps a little

Same here, word for word, for 32 years. I'm trying to help one of my riding buddies but he "coasts" into turns downshifting each gear rather than "charging" the corner and double or triple downshifting on the brakes. He says that he's been told "by someone that should know" that downshifting without engagement (skipping a gear) is "bad for the transmission."

If you are slowing down from a high speed and you shift down and release the clutch one gear at a time, you are slowing the gears down incrementily so their speeds are closer to each other and minumizing the job of the engaement dogs.
On the other hand, if you come to a stop or slow down considerably, shifting multiple times makes no difference because the gear speeds are close.

Head Shake...

I have had my 09 TE610 for about a year and have had a head shake problem at speed on the road. It was pretty bad with the stock karoos. It got better with the D606s. recently it got bad again as the D606s have worn.

I read the raising the forks in in the triple clamps may help. I gave it a try, and it made a significant improvement. Did 160 miles on Sunday and most at freeway speeds and I never experienced it. Whoever suggested it... Thanks!

TE630 Alternator output

I can't find my research on the TE-610 alternator output. I recall that it was just a little less than the output on the TE-630.

The TE-630 is rated at 290 watts at 2,000 rpm, and 360 watts at 5,000+ rpm.

I believe that FI adds an additional electrical load for the computer and for the fuel pump. The computer doesn't take much power (watts), but requires a steady voltage. If the voltage drops below (12.2??? volts - someone check me here - I've read it on another thread but can't find it now), the computer output becomes unpredictable and the bike runs poorly or not at all.

The fuel pump requires wattage but I don't know how much, and different pumps have different requirements. Are the fuel pumps on the TE-610 / TE-630 on a dedicated circuit? If so, the wattage of the fuse for that circuit should indicated the pump's power requirments.

Regardless, 300+ watts will run lots of stuff, especially if you reduce the lighting load with LEDs and Xenon lights.

Bikes like the XR-650R that don't run batteries, and dirt bikes that were never intended to run as Dual Sports usually don't put out enough wattage to run lots of accessories, let alone FI systems.

There is a terrific Alternators for Dummies thread somewhere here in the Archives of ADVRider.

The only thing I can think of is that you can screw up, either going to far or letting the clutch out too fast and then lock up the rear tire and crash. and that, would obviously damage the transmission

I think it's some "helpful" advise someone thought of for newbs, like: "just don't use the front brake and you'll be fine"
