The '07 TE610 is carbed, the '08 is fuel injected. There are other minor differences. Hall's has the '08 Parts Catalog. See this page for a link:

Iridium plug gap?

I have read that you shouldn't try to change the gap on these plugs (NGK CR8EIX), but I was clumsy enough to drop it and unlucky enough that it landed on the electrode end, and I'm not going to throw it away. So, does anyone know what the gap is supposed to be? I'm fairly certain its larger than what the manual specifies for the OEM plug.

Thanks,
Robert

Have SM 610 looking for a TE 610 Wheelset, Ideas?

Ridin a 06 SM 610 right now and I'd like to be able to play in the dirt some more with it. A little spooky ridin the gravel and mud on the stock dunlops. Does anyone know where I can find a TE 610 wheelset? Any ideas how the 610sm would handle some light enduro riding if set up w/ a 21 front and 18 rear? Thanks for the info!

your front tire will rub if you put 21" on a SM suspension. you'd have to do brake caliper swap or rotor swap.

If i where you I'd buy off road tires for it and be done. SM guys have had luck with putting a rear tire on their front rim to fit the ?18"?

this thread is a reference index. You'll get more feed back maybe even more than you want at the 610 owner sign in thread. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...40#post9481740

seat rebuild

Radioman http://www.advrider.com/forums/member.php?u=20825 Did this great rebuild here's how


As I purchased my 08 TE610 about a month ago, I really needed to rebuild teh seat. So I went to a local foam shop and bought some scrap foam, then an Uphostery supply shop for some stiffer rebonded foam, online for info..... Then I started jumped in to modify my seat for some comfort.

Stock seat with bit of mud...... Too narrow and too hard for my dual sporting.


out with the staples, and off with the stock cover




Measuring and marking the centerline


Marking my position on the seat..... and ADV reference


Thinking about how wide to make the seat.....


OK.... Start in on the Point of no return.... OK hold my beer.....and watch this.... Standard Turkey slicing power kitchen knife.


Seriously no turning back now!


Focusing on a straight level cut, (but alos operating the camera remote!).



Gluing the "wings" to support my wider "tractor" seat area.


These will glue left and right .....


Adding the new and wider rebonded foam. Laied it out and then trimmed to the right shape.






Roughed to shape.


Sat on the bike, and decided I needed a bit more stiffness. I added a 3/32 ABS plastic sheet and glued this in place.


Also added a small piece of blue foam to make the seat a bit flatter....sanded this to feather it in on the front and back...


Then glued the Rebond foam and "wings" under the left and right sides...


Once trimmed again to get ride of excess foam..... Airsanded with coast grit paper to shape the foam...




I got the overall shape that felt good...


Added a slight foam wrap at the back




Once I got the shape correct, then glued on a headliner layer to smooth out the entire seat. Spray adhesive 3M #80 applied to the seat foam and the other materials. Let them dry and then stick them together.




Applied the center part first, smoothed it all out and wrapped it all around to avoid any wrinkles..




Looking good.


Then I marked out how the new seat cover should be applied. I cut up the original seat cover in black, and laied it on the top of the seat cover to see how it will look.






With a quick Photoshop work.... It could look like this....




I will find an auto upholstery shop to sew up some marine grade vinyl ..... and then staple it to the seat pan...

I will show some photos of the final product! not too bad for a few hours work.

Maybe a bunch of dumb questions..i searched this thread but couldnt zero in on any clear answers.

I own a 2006 TE510 and intend to buy a 09 SM610.

How many hours before i do a valve clearance check on either of these bikes (I heard different figures like 40 hours at race-pace vs 150 hours of normal riding etc)

Related Question : How often do you replace the piston rings on both the above machines? Heard some scary stories from a competing yamaha dealer..

Can the SM610 handle a long distance trips (with on/off road tires)..Like 300kms a day for 13 to 15 days

Thanks

Check valves every 10,000 Km
Change oil at 5,000 Km or more, I think you cal leave a good synthetic oil 6,000 Km between changes
No change of piston rings or something like that, the TE610 has a dual sport engine and you can make a long trips, a made like 900 Km in one day, no problems.

At this oment mi TE610 model year 2008 has 17,000 Km on odometer.

Great bike for travels.
