Moped shop turn sognals & 60/60W bulb

I forgot to mention....Husky 610 turn signals are the same as my F650GS Dakar BMW...but at the moped shop, you can buy a set of 4 TOMOS (Italian) turn signals, same style as BMW & Husky, for $37.95. ONE from BMW is $35!!!!

They also have a 60/60 W BA20D base headlight bulb, $6.60...but I'd bet that puppy would melt your reflector anytime except winter!!

DUH!!! Yup, the sticker under the seat. 1500 to probably 1600 RPM. The screw goes thru the top of what looks like a 6 or an 8. It's got valve lash, spark timing and other tidbits I didn't read.

Somewhere around 1200 it gets low enough to start clacking, and above 2000 just seems too high so in between there

oil change

I'm kind of curious what type of oil and oil weight is being used in the 610. I just changed my oil and filter for the first time at 400 miles and put in a 20-50 blend. The manual is a little vague about recommendations. As I recall it says use a 10-60?

Finally checked my valves, and like everyone told me they would be, they were well within spec. I won't be doing that again for awhile.

Dirt Bagz and Wolfman Enduro tankbag coming, thanx Big Dog.

Will be going to TKC -80's as soon as the Karoo's are worn out.

Abanta,

The oil question has been beat up pretty good. Seriously, I'd run whatever and change it often. Personally I've used Mobil 1 15W-50 for awhile and like it just fine. Never heard of ANY motors blowing up because an owner put in Pennzoil instead of Amsoil. The point is make sure there is oil in it and you'll be good to go.

Let the games begin.

I checked the hot start knob and it's in, so I adjusted the idle down to 1600 r's. Still getting instantaneous throttle response, and having kept it below 5500 r's during break-in, haven't noticed any surging or dead spots.

I called Uptite about their skid plate, and he said he ought to have them available starting next week $$$$$

I ordered a Ray Halogen headlight, so that'll be going on this weekend, along with the Pastrana bars and Scotts clamp. And Fastway pegs. And Wolfman Enduro tankbag. And...

It never ends!

Cheers,
Tom

Oil

Thanks for the response. I guess the question I meant to ask is synthetic or mineral. I know this oil thing was kicked around early one, but I thought maybe as we all accumulate mileage thoughts might change.

Jambie, please post when the skid plate for the 610 becomes available from George. I was about to order the one from Utah, but would prefer the lighter one (hopefully) from George. Got tired of emailing him though.

For those of you with the Leo Vince slip-on on your TE610, is that the same one for the SM610? The LV site only shows one for the SM.

Also, my '07 TE has two heat shields, and I'm wondering if you can still keep the rear one with the LV pipe. If not, it looks like a passenger would get an awfully warm left leg...

One more thing: does the LV pipe have a USFS approved spark arrestor? What about how loud it is with the inserts intalled compared to the stocker?

Cheers,
Tom

Don't have it yet,but I understand this is one and the same for the TE.

Haven't seen any with the LV that retained stock heat shield.
Yes, could be roasty toasty!

Yes.

About the same at idle, a little louder when you get on it.

Tons of info on these mods & others on the net at Supermotojunkie and Thumpertalk sites.

Let me know if you try to order one (LEO VINCE). . . . .

Anyone??????

Some of the Kalifornia SM610 boys recently said they were backordered & they're having to wait for the factory to get them done ship them out to places like Motoexotica, etc.

Thumpertalk store said there were two in the warehouse. I got one...

Lokking at the pics, it looks like I might be able to mount the rear heat shield to the front cf strap on the LV. I'll have to check it out when I get it. Anybody that's got one think this will work?

Cheers,
Tom

jambie, you are about to find out how this works with the Leo Vince...rear strap looks like it won't line up, but will. You lose about 2 lbs...not as much as I had hoped, but still helps. With smallest/quietest insert but no screen, it's got a nice reasonable exhaust note at idle and small throttle openings, but gets "significantly louder than stock" when you really open the throttle. Sounds nice, but is louder. And, louder yet with thte other (larger) inserts.

Yes Virginia, there is a significant increase in power in the midrange. Low end seems the same, although logic tells me it could be a bit softer since backpressure tends to help low end. Top end is probably better as well, but i'm not revving it so much since i'm still sorta breaking it in.

Regardless of heat shields, the pipe runs cooler than the stocker by far.
