The power-up kit is a resistor jumper, exhaust plug and gasket.

You remove the O2 sensor from the exhaust and unplug it from the wiring harness.

You plug the resistor jumper into the wiring harness in it's place.

You plug the exhaust hole with the plug & gasket.

Here are the part numbers for the power-up kit:
  • 8000A7724 - Oxygen Sensor Plug
  • 8000A7749 - Gasket, O2 Sensor Plug
  • 8000A6750 - Oxygen Sensor Connector

I wouldn't even bother riding mine without that installed at minimum.

Typically, yes. You have a few options:
  1. You can do some basic tuning with iBeat software and the accompanying cable used to connect it to a computer.
  2. You can get a JD Jetting kit HERE.
  3. You can get a PowerCommander & AutoTune module.
  4. You can get a PowerCommander without AutoTune and have a custom map made by a tuner.

+1. My 610 had it installed so I never knew any better til I traded a friend and rode his. I seriously thought his bike was broken. And after riding mine he bought the kit the next day

Completely transforms the bikes.

Just to clarify, you can (and should) use the power up kit, even if you run with stock exhaust?
Or is it only for bikes with aftermarket exhaust?

You absolutely should be running the power up kit, even stock.

My dealer won't let any Husky's go out the door without installing the power up kit. He said it is the only way to make people happy with their purpose.

edit: 'purchase' not 'purpose' :)

Sounds like a good one. When a dealer gives you the rote line about a PU voiding warranty, you can guarantee they won't fight for you to get *any* warranty work done.

That's what I'm thinking.

When I bought my power-up kit, I asked about voiding the warranty. "We can work around that", is what I was told.

Another way to look at it is.. how many TE630's actually required any warranty work?

From most of the posts in here it seems like I have one of the few bikes with this graphics package?

Yes, the last ones they built. I guess they got sick of people asking what it was.

There are four of them on cycletrader around the country. You'd have to call and see if they actually have one.

There have been just a couple of used ones that have come for sale, so that's always an option to look for. People lose interest or find it's just not for them, or get in a bind and have to sell.

They were easy to buy when the dealers had them. You just walked in and signed your name and BMW Bank took care of the rest.

  • rear sprocket nuts replacement
  • clutch master cylinder leak
  • clutch cover oil pump leak
  • gauge cluster not water tight
