There is a technical service bulletin from HSQ to replace the kick starter gear assembly on 08 TC's only as HSQ IT felt the TE/TXC kicker isn't necessary anyhow. If it fails it can crack the crank case cover, so use your kicker sparingly, I'd hate to have to try kicking it over to life in the boondies only to wind up with metal bits floating around the case and oily air blowing out the freshly formed crack

(that ought to give the 610/630 crowd some ammo)
What is the number and date of that TSB?

BTW, mine starts first kick.. FI not carbed like the TC...

regardless.. rumor has it that it breaks external to the cases.. Does the TC run higher compression than the TE?

How long should the kick lever be? Is it better to have a shorter or a longer leg?

When folded should it be more forward or straight up? Which gives the best leverage? I think a hand crank from a model T would be best.

I heard the same arguments when we started moving away from points ignitions.

make sure your battery is servicable, i've never had a battery failed that I didnt know was going to.

Talk about going backwards... Nothing but sealed and lightweight batts for me. If you're worried about it you could carry two high-tech cells with less space and weight than a wet cell.

And, IMO the risk of a wet cell corroding OTHER components is not worth it.

subframe

How strong is the subframe on a 630, does it need reinforcing to carry 15-20 kgs of gear as well as my 105 kgs

The 610 definitely needs some gussets, and from what I have seen the 630 looks very similar in design.

Have points in my 67 Camaro along with the condensor.. and gapped appropriately..

ABS on my FJR1300 is fantastic and worthless in my Tacoma IMO.

and now did you get a read on the TE630 long term review?


If I'm not mistaken, the TE630 received revisions to the subframe from the former TE610.

The subframe on the 630 is beefed up compared to the 610 but that's alot of weight to mount right at the end. i don't think it would stand up to continus washboard. You should use a giant loop bag to spread the weight out / lower the weight.
