I like your numbers Flashman!!
I read "curb" weight - not sure if that is with or without gas.

Yeah, that means no fuel.

If you guys are like me, when you get a new bike, first it gets lighter...aftermarket exhaust plus removal of a few things.

Then you gradually start bolting on doodads (racks, handguards, skidplate) and it gets heavier

I quit weighing my 610 when I hit 360 pounds on a certified scale. It was probably 375 at the end of our time together.

Nailed it. Still nowhere near the weight those GS folks haul around, then they still have a bike under all that cool gear.

Curb weight should mean with the gas tank full.

So what bike is next?

Once our beloved 610's are gone where do we go from here?
Not sure I want a heavier bike for single track, that requires more maint.
I love mine now it is the best of both worlds but is already heavy enuff for the single track here in NE.
What's out there is closest to what we have now?

Has anyone had a problem at ALL with the fuel system on the TE630 or the FI 610's?

never here and never heard of one.. Alot of people worry about the plastic fittings. If it really bothers you you can replace them.

I havn't heard of any eitehr, but it sure seems like guys are worried about it even though the FI bikes have been out a while and no one is relating fuel related issues. Weird.
