The '07 tail is a single piece, all white. They went to a multi-piece tail in '08.

As far as fitment I can only vouch for the '07 stuff but I didn't have any issues whatsoever, everything bolted right up and fit perfect.
Thanks!

Also, wind protection is great and I have enough room under the light for a bag that I keep my tire irons / spare tube and air canisters in.

Good point! I forgot BeemerPat is running that setup too.
And Olas Atlas is running the cyclops.

Jeez... if I wanna be different... maybe I should mold my own

I don't know wether or not the FI Husqs have something like this built in or not but if it does, this could be the problem. Maybe it's putting in too much fuel, or maybe it's not putting in enough. The manufacturer probably assumed everyone was gonna leave the bikes in the barn till the temps went above 50.

Geek,

On the "stuff" page of my new Cycle News (issue#6) they show some Moose Racing CF fork guards ($59.95), so there is another source for those via any Parts Unlimited dealer. E-Line makes them for Moose.


Rusty Rocket,

That's interesting. I'm not sure if our systems have temp sensing or just the mixture. Maybe someone else knows.

I'm assuming the TE is referring to our 610... and that it'll fit an 06 07 or 08?
I honestly don't know, you would have to call them. I just threw out the links of places that make carbon fiber bike parts.

Another place you might want to check would be SuperMotoJunkie, post the question there. Quite a large 610 following there, & they look for every possible upgrade available. Good Luck

P.S. on your headlight needs, I can't remember if you tried the Buell setup, but I'm happy with mine & it has the Buell windscreen, now I get clean windblast at helmet level & no buffeting on the highway, but all your choices appear to be top notch, it'll be like choosing the best oil. For night time trails I personally would also mount a couple small clear fog lights to light up the trail more side to side (foglights = wide short distance light)

Here's 2 links on the Buell setup, mine & another larger one from the Suzuki forum
New eyes





DR650 Buell Headlight Mod - ThumperTalk


Just did a quick search on the SMJ forum & here's a link to 610 carbon fiber parts from Italy I believe, about 3\4's down the page.

Just some data for you.

My 08 starts up just fine in the 20's F, but I do have to use the fuel enrichener(choke?) to start it. If you are getting funky sensor inputs I'd bet you'd get a code thrown out your Neutral light via some blinking.

Some pretty cool light options here . Would like to try that new Trail Tech X2. Got a 55 w UFO works many times better than the stock one. If you ride that stock one at night it had better be a full moon.

I am also thinking the problem is the EFI. Being that the 08 610 FI is a new system...it sticks out as a likely culprit.

(Especially considering that)
it probably isn't
1. the fuel - we've all put in new fuel and the same problem exists.
2. the battery - there is a variety of batteries in use here
3. Dirty injectors - My bike is still 1000mi "new" and i find it hard to believe.
4. Cold weather - I live in SoCAL...i think it got below 40 once.

ok.. maybe I'm getting old.. but this is the best "performance mod" I've done to this bike.

"Hey Geek.. want 20 more horsepower or that seat?"
"I'll take the renazco Alex. Thanks."

The perfect colorado bike just got perfecter.









and to help with scale, before I return Indy's seat to him, I took some photos of them together to give you guys an exact reference to your existing seat if you are considering the Renazco:





For those not familiar:

The seat is custom made by Renazco. Chris (creeper here on adv) did a fantastic job. Basically you pick your cover (mine is black suede top, carbon sides, & blue lettering) and then tell them your height,inseam, weight, and your riding style.. and they build the seat to suit you.

I do everything on this bike from multi day camping trips to nasty local single track and I think the shape is going to work out wonderfully. Its narrow up front for when I'm trying to drive the front wheel into the ground and its broad at the back so I can get onto my proper "sitting bones" and be comfortable on the black top.



disclaimer: No association; just a very happy customer

Your seat looks great Geek. I got my Renazco back in October and it made all the difference in the world. I got a chance to ride Bass-on-tap's before I ordered mine and fell in . I didn't get the suede top, but I like the feel of it better actually. It's just hard to keep clean, at least in NE mud.

Hmmmm.....seems to me that two twenty watt lights are not going to be an improvement.
