I think you are largely correct, but a bit here and bit there add up quickly especially when they are up high and at the tail end of the bike. I hate weight on the rear rack and try to pack light enough that I only carry rain gear and warm outer layers there. Doesn't matter on the pavement but on the dirt it sure does. At quart of oil mounted to the front of the skid plate matters less than a few ounces on the rear rack...

So what is the sub frame made from on the 630?

I've read several different things. My 03 TE610E looks like it's aluminum (paint) but it's steel.

For somebody on the east coast. 2011 TE630, 270 miles for $5,299

Stumbled on this today. I don't have any interest in this bike/dealer or know anything about it but sure seems like a great price. Probably won't last long, that is if even still available. I find the dealers on CycleTrader very slow to remove ads once sold.

Have you put in a Shorai battery yet? Pounds, not ounces right there.

They will put/leave anything on there just to get you to call. Most are bait and switch offers, or you get there and they've tacked on a grand in junk fees.

was going to order a Shorai last PM in fact but was reading complaints and a thread about low temperature problems. Some were dissapointed at temp of 50 F, most were in the low 40's or hi 30's. But the Shorai response was to turn on the headlights or grip heaters for 5 minutes which would warm up the cells, however one person stated leaving the headlight on for 5 minutes did not accomplish much. So this is a problem.

I suppose for $30 I could stick a set of grip heater panels to the battery, so that running current to "warm up" up the cells would in fact do just that ! The weight savings is such that even bringing the battery inside on occasions when cold would be worth it...

Mpg?

What kind of Miles Per Gallon are the TE630's getting?

Trying to decide if the 3.2 Gallon tank range equals the 4 Gallon tank range on my TE610E.

The tank holds 12 litres and the low fuel light is meant to come on with 2 left, although mine seems to come on slightly earlier.

During break in with standard pipes & gearing, with no power up, the light would come on around 195km. Now fully run in (3,000km) it is ridden harder, and with the Twin Arrow pipes and 14 tooth CS the light come on around 165-175km. That's a mix of tar, tight dirt backroads and light/medium off road trails. I am 6'4 and weigh around 14.5 stone.

+1 Same setup. No wait, I run a 15T counter. 14? Wow, that's some low gearing.
Mix of on and offroad.
I imagine if you rode 55-60 on the hiway it would improve a bit.

When the light flashes I can't get quite 3 gallons in there, usually comes up about 2.85 to 2.9 or thereabouts. Never run it completely out to know total miles to empty.

Do-able unless you're in remote areas where you need a couple of hundred mile range. I'll probably end up with a rotopax setup for Death Valley. The Kolpin tank holds a gallon and a half.

A bunch of different factors and tuning options but 45-55 generally with a guy at cafehusky riding thru Canada getting as high as 65ish if I'm not mistaken. Most dirt pounding seems to produce about 45.

I'm 40ish, maybe 42 depending on the right hand w/ 14/42 and the JD running a couple spots richer than stock. FMF exhaust.
Motor is still tight I'm sure.

15/42 Is stock you went down one on the front which would be the same as mine, i'm sure i read that in one of your posts.

Power Up kit and stock gearing averaging 44mpg. Cruised one entire tank at 60-65mph and got 50mpg. You can view details in link below. I keep track of mpg not for economy reasons but for a leading indicator for any running issues.

MPG no bueno

14/42, FMF Q4, Power Up, JD tuner - rode hard this weekend and got 35mpg. Pretty disappointing... I weigh 250 lbs and was in mountainous terrain. Oh yeah, just turned 600 miles. I hope this things frees up a little with some more use. I need at least a 140-150 mile range out of this thing and I don't really want to add the weight of a big tank. The bike heavy enough as it is off road. Otherwise I'm pretty happy with it compared to the 610 I moved up from.
