My TE weighs 340#. That is with stock tank with fuel, tool bag on rear luggage rack, dirt bag brackets, skid plate, tank bag, fender tube bag, gps mount w/gps, and hand guards (I think that's everything).

+ or - 8 or 9 lbs if you have the stock can w/ cat or not and another 8-9lbs + or - with/without the passenger pegs.

It would be interesting to see a side by side weigh in with two bikes with similar options. I have always thought that the two bike weigh close to the same.

TE610 has what 38 hp at the wheel and the DRZ 35? The DRzE is even lighter with more aggressive cams, many a drag race between my old 610 and a buddies DRZ400E had them exactly equal.

You're right about one thing, an XR650R will smoke 'em both.

As I recall you have said that you never touched your carb. The emissions passing stock AFRs are very lean, great for gas mileage but power output not so much. Both my 07 and 08 ran way stronger with richer AFRs..

Handles great on evrything but so cal super slab! All of that and it pulls off 60+ mpg no matter how bad I flog it.
The reason for getting rid of it is that I have been doing some rides with my friends down in Baja that are off of any dirt road or jeep trail. I am looking for a reliable, carburated bike with a kick start. Not that the WR has a bad rep for reliaability I just want to be able to do more than scratch my head if the bike up and dies in the middle of no where. The DRZ is another bike I am considering.
Thanks for answering my questions,my brrother offered to sell me his 08 DRZ for a god price, I picked up a kick start kit today that someone was selling on CL. The TE seems like a great bike.

First thing I did when I got my bike, totally stock, was put it on some race car corner scales. Full tank, 100 percent stock, it was 335 lb.

Nice day today. Not very adventurous, just shaking it down in the nearest legal riding area for non-plated bikes, but still a good day. First day for this bike on dirt with no issues and not even one tipover. It's always been fine on the street, but dirt rides have always brought something out, and I keep forgetting it's not the YZ. Was solo today, so took it a little easier. Fuel filter and all-new vent hoses seem to have kicked the pilot jet clogging problem. Ready to actually start exploring.

Butt dyno is tough to pin down, way stronger might have been higher or lower horsepower. My 2007 started out at 42 mpg stock, then the FI bikes came out and everybody was reporting 60 mpg stock, threw the Uptite muffler on and it leaned out to 60 mpg and ran great.

Pretty sure that dyno run that got posted in this thread way back when was a stock bike at 38 hp and the topic right now is that the 610 has 1/3 more power than a DRz which isn't true. The 610 has 3 more ponies and the best transmission ever made.

They probably are 38HP with the stock exhaust and lean jetting.

I think I found my problem. I'm almost ashamed to admit it. After taking the tank, air filter housing, etc off, I was removing the carb when I noticed the RED hot start knob was pulled out. DOH!! I haven't got the bike together to test it, but quite sure this was the issue. I never use that hot start, but it was obviously pulled out by mistake. I had some other things to check so it wasn't a total waste of time. BTW, the carb to cylinder boot looked perfect and this on a bike with over 20,000 miles. MAYBE, this will help someone else from making this stupid mistake.

Who runs stock? I would love to dyno mine with the JD tuner and EHS filter mod.

I had it wrong, 35.58: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...ostcount=11101

Follow the link to the dyno post.

Many others including myself have found the 610 with a carb to be jetted rich out of the box. When I put the pipe on it I got rid of the high rpm stutter and got it to 102 mph on a playa with camping gear on board.

I really don't think there is much more HP to found in the 576cc 13 to 1 engine, it's making about all it can.
