I put the OEM ones back in for now, but I'll switch them back. What's the torque spec for those bolts? I got them as tight as I could with a 6" box and Allen wrench. It would be hard to over do them that way I think...


Life is good!

I have been considering a te610-630 for about a year now. I'm just not happy with the performance of my current stable.

I just got $2900 for mine with 16,000 miles on the clock, and well used.

Mine is sticking, after the "L" going into the throttle body. So the bike is running fast idle, hot, and it's backfiring like a b*tch on decell. Does it advance timing?

Anyway, anybody have any tips on how to fix its sticky-ness AND has anyone been able to extend the damned thing? I'm seriously considering removing it cuz where I live it's never been so cold the thing won't just start. (I think)
My EFI 450 also has this. I honestly believe it is just an air bypass to introduce more air at idle when it starts cold...coolant sensor will enrich at cold start, but it has no idle stepper motor to bring the idle up some...and cracking the throttle open will mess with starting due to TPS input change.

I know this isn't a popular thing around here, but I'm trying to install the passenger footpegs on my 610 (my girlfriend wants to try going for a ride). However, I've got Dirtbagz brackets which I want to leave in place, and it looks like the left side pass. footpeg bolt needs to be replaced. I've tried threading a long M8 in the hole, but the bolt seems too big. It looks like the parts catalog calls for an M8x55, but I can't tell.
Does anyone know what size bolt I'm supposed to use? It's for the bottom mount of the left-side passenger footpeg.

I have the Dirtbagz and passenger pegs. It was easy to measure it. Just stack the parts up, incuding the spacer. I just measured mine - 80mm on the lft, 60mm on the right side. I also upgraded the bolts to 12.9 hardened bolts.

Use thread locker. Seen too many subframe bolts fall out (and bend) on KLRs and TE610s. I carry extras for others, and have donated more than a few to the cause while on the trails. :-). If you have to order or select only one bolt size, get the longest that might work and use a hack saw to cut it to the right length once you assemble it.

Anyone here know what size/length spokes go in the rear wheel (non drive side). It's a 2000 TE model if that matters. I was working on the rear brake today and noticed a couple broken spokes to go with the bent rim...

Speedo pickup cable?

Before I take the rotor back to Tasky's for the magnet being in the wrong place, I want to try and bring the pickup a little closer to the disc, but it looks like I have to detach the cable... so, how does one remove the speedo pickup cable from the front rotor? Just pull off the sensor? I'm not seeing anything in the manual for this, and I don't want to break it.

Never mind... figured it out. The cable does not detach at the bottom, near the pickup, but rather detaches at the top...

Now, how the hell do I detach it up top without taking apart the Lynx fairing...

Wave rotor

Well, the wave rotor will work just fine on the TE610. I had to bring the pickup sensor a little closer to the magnet, which involved cutting and soldering the pickup cable (I didn't want to take apart my fairing, so this seemed like the simplest way to go) so that I could give the pickup a few turns to thread it deeper into its hole. I'm back to having a working speedo.

Kilometers to MPH

Can somebody tell me how to change my speedometer to read MPH instead of Kilometers? It's a 2008. I've checked the manual and it's not in there.

Don't forget that the first post in this big ole thread has the link to the 610 index page that has the answers to these things.

Grip shrinkage?

Has anyone else had the original grips on their TE shrink on the bar? Mine started creeping inward as soon as I trimmed the end out to attach the Probend. On its way to being a donut. Getting replaced soon, along with the bent stock bar. Renthal FTW.

BTW, I measured the unbent end of the stock bar, and the CR bend is closest.

My OEM grips got completely smooth and disappeared in just a few hundred miles. I really liked the grip but they are way soft.

I have a 08 so I'm not positive but those don't look like OEM to me either.

Thanks. So, I mounted the pegs (which took way longer than it should have), and we went for a ride... probably 4 hours of seat time (total trip was 6 hours). Fun, but not comfortable at all (for either of us, and we are both pretty small). I took her off-road for a bit (went reeeal slow) and almost lost it a couple times in some mud and sand, which was pretty funny.
I may have opened an expensive can of worms with this ride.

Expensive can of worms = her own TE bike :-). That is a a good problem to have if you can swing it that direction.

I gave a riding buddy a lift up a hill for a 1/4 mile once on a forest road. Tight squeeze, would not want to do that for long. My wife does not drive a motorcycle, but likes to ride passenger. So we have a luxo-barge touring bike. She also does not ride on motorcycles in dirt. So we also now have a Jeep for the dirty roads. Luxo-barge is now for sale.
