I sent a PM to the guy down under to see if he has any drawings of the one he made. I will let everyone know what I find out.

So I played motohookie today (how can you pass up a 75 degree day on March 3rd in the Rockies??)

Left at 9am. Got home now.

TONS of great riding from epic mountain climbs to single track to sand berms.
My only bike issue all day is I broke my rear brake's "toe tab" (that triangle) clean off.

I LOVE THIS BIKE

re:airbox

my wr had a dzus quarter turn fastener and a door. why cant we? i am seriously considering cutting the cover in half and piano hinging it with fiberglass

as for box removal... first time was pain in arse for me too... i have since removed/cleaned/lubed the rubber and repositioned the clamps so they are easier to access. last time i removed airbox was saturday and i reinstalled the box & rubber boot in 2 mins flat with no fiddling or issues at all. maybe it is a practice makes perfect thing because i remember cursing it blue the first time i did it last summer

You just reminded me that I have a bunch of dzus fasteners left over from my Ducati rebuild. Looks like I have a new project!

Wheel Brg # ?

I don't have access to my parts book. Can some one tell me the generic number of the drive side rear wheel bearing?

now I can't recall where the 2 washers go (# 73 in diagram below)


I'm pretty sure there is one washer under the lower bearing, but where does the second one go? Above it, or on top of the upper triple clamp?

Hope someone here has been through this and can steer me straight.

Thanks,

I just did my 450 and put both under the bearing. It looked like they were needed for clearance.

It is #63005 (25x47x16)
The other two are more common # 6005 (25x47x12)

I had some trouble finding the 63005, but a local bearing supply joint could order one. Also see here They don't always have the Moose kit in, but it's cheap when they do. Not sure about the quality...

I was hurt at work yesterday so I will be off the bike for a couple of weeks. I have 6 stitches in the top of my head and bruised shoulder and ribs from when the part I was working on fell on me. I'm ok and back to work in the am with light duty. I will take a look and get back with what I find out.
Sorry about the pain BeemerPat. The alloy filter is mine. It was made just with a steel Rule to take measurements. As my box was spinning at all points, i had him drill off the lid, and pattern a box from it. The rear of the box, I had him reshape. Instead of the Box parts at the back it now ramps back from max rear hieght. This keeps it of the Tubular frame part as well. No oil reburn either. I saw a shot or two of that being run to a filter elsewhere. I paid 600 OZ$'s but it did talke the lad his time of bussines to do it. I had the bike here, he only had the filter box and side cover. So basicly i have an alloy copy? basicly...

Air box and water

As I read about the airbox and the inability to get the water out if it gets in, why not (when you have it out, or on a new design) add a drain pipe? Just drill a hole in the lowest point on the bottom and add a brass fitting that you can connect a clear plastic hose to with a plug in the bottom with a spring clamp. Then you can see if waters in the hose and drain it simple enough. My DRZ400 has a drain that looks like an AC drain on a car or truck. The rubber it self closing and it drains itself. My other bikes use the method mentioned above.
My 2 cents,
G

The airbox will leak anything that gets into it, but remember the intake point is about the same as every other dirtbike, at the mouth of the carb. The only real exceptions to water intake height that I know of are the Husabergs frame tube intake and the LC8 KTMs with a sealed boz and top mounted intake. My TE450 & SXF450 will drown out just as easily as a 610. Looking at your airbox out in the breeze may be disturbing but the ones between the frame rails fill with water if they are submerged too...

FWIW I would always pull the 610 carb with the box/boot attached to fiddle with the carb, much faster & easier to do, kinda quick really.

That's too bad you live in such a sorry place for off road riding.
Look how cool Gulf Coast Texas is:

My comment on the low airbox a few posts back was not because I thought the intake was any lower than any other bike but that the actual foam filter is so low below the carb. I've been through water deep enough that the element soaks up enough water that bike runs pretty rich and boggy (is that a word) for quite a distance after the water crossing.

A sealed box with a top opening/snorkel and the a/c type drain would be better IMO.
