I did compare them side by side. The original was pretty stretched out. Let me see if I have a pic.

Nope. Don't have one.

Battery is caput.

Mine has not run since labor day weekend. I've had the trickle charger on it a few times but thought I should at least fire it up and warm it up even if I wasn't gonna ride it....

Would not start. Put the charger on it for a half hour...would not start. Even the dash completely reset - dead battery. So I jumped it with the car, ran it for a bit, runs like a clock, shut 'er down and put the charger back on it. Next day same deal, would not start. Jumped it again so I didn't have fuel sitting in the barrel, but now the battery has to go. Fully charged is has no cranking power at all.

I usually just pick up a agm from walmart but they had nothing but bad reviews online so I thought I better try something else. MCSS I could not get the ytx14 battery to come up. Stupid website.

I hope those batterymart agms aren't a total POS. Got one coming in a week or so. $50.

It's the original...it's a 2011 model, so I would imagine about 3 years old.

The guy in front of you keeps looking back like "damn, that big bike is still there..."


Yikes, our thread went a month with no posts.


I've got my Sept ride report going now. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=941760

It contains a pic of a rare four 630 sighting

Wow...quiet thread. I got curious and looked up Tagati's history and he hasn't posted on ADV for a year. Post above was from January 2013.

I love riding my 630 but I joke with my friends that I'm riding a "Relic" because of the surprised and shocked reaction I get from others on the trail when they see me riding it.

I take by the lack of TE630 reports here that we have a real group of riders and a good bike because 90% of most threads on ADV is negitive B S or complaining of bikes.

GO 610/630 RIDERS!!!!!

Winter Upgrades: New LED lights and heated grips

Just installed a set of these on the TE. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=926884

As nice as Jim's ADVMonsters and $140 shipped. No worries about getting caught on the trail after dark now...











Also added heated grip wraps from Aerostich. http://www.aerostich.com/a-to-b-util...rap-grips.html


And tested both last weekend on a 40deg ride.




Jim on his 630. Yes, that's ice floating in the puddle.

Agreed. They're either negative or the same questions get asked over and over and over. I have yet to see another one in my area. I've also had two offers to buy it and I'm not even selling. I guess that says something huh?

Bob, you keep bolting stuff on your bike while I'm trying to figure out what else I can take off. I guess that just shows the versatility of our bike huh?

My 630 hasn't looked as clean as Dyno's for a long time. Guess I'll have to get it out and spiff it up tomorrow. Love my 630 too.

Hey guys, sorry to intrude on the 630 thread but I have a question. I'm the owner of a new TR650. The forks suck. Can someone tell me what the OD of the 630 forks are? Thanks in advance.
