Airbox mods

The only problem I've had on my 2003 TE610E is in deep-ish water. The air box design has two very low intakes. The lowest intakes allow water in fairly shallow crossings and the bike stalls. The good...

Peter,
Nice pics. I did almost the same trip in 2001 but it was very dry no mud. It looks like you had some hard work (fun) in the mud!

On that trip I used MT-21 front and rear. The rear lasted...

Mt70?

How about the Pirelli MT-70?
Does anyone know if an MT70 will last 6000k. I had an MT-21 on a XTZ-660 years ago which lasted 5,500k in similar terrain.

Size matters

The 2001 TE-610 was only a 575cc.
The seat on the 01 model was a absolute bum killer. Too narrow, too hard, I can feel the seat base through it. Not good for long distance riding.
The engine is...
