Thanks for the congrats and have fun at Tahuya. I don't have enough time to get out there tomorrow but am planning on heading out towards North Fork and some of the south of I-90 stuff to see what is accessible.

A note to K7MDL, this is John who was minutes behind you at Tasky's when you bought your 610 if you remember.

Hmmmm... I might just have to do that. I considered getting the sticker when I ordered the light, but thought nah ... Now it sounds like a good idea.

My light and sticker will be here next week. I'll let you know how it looks.

Idle speed adjustment is just a turn of the screw. It's kinda hard to see/get to with the air box on but once you know where to get to it's not that bad.
I have found the screw and have turned it at least 3 full turns CCW and it has not changed the RPM. This seems like a lot of adjustment for no response?

I use Osram Night Breaker H4 bulbs and they put out a LOT more light than "regular" H4 bulbs. Do NOT buy Sylvania Silver Star from your local auto supply store; they do not last and burn out in short order.

Hand gaurd woes

Been looking over my 610 and testing the fit of some Cycra Pro Bends. It appears that the right side gaurd is going to be very close to blocking the key switch. I may have to relocate the switch, but before I do I'd like to hear what anyone else has done about this.

What if you get them from wal-mart?

To my knowledge it's nothing you can do in the garage with a screwdriver. You need to get into the brains and reprogram it. I will post up here after I get this all taken care of tomorrow.
I turn my idle screw and it changes idle just fine. The bike is all stock.

If you are using Pro Bends I would recommend that you opt for the triple clamp mounts; they will not interfere with the switch, though it is a bit tight in there.

Thanks. I may end up doing that, but it looks like I can cut a mounting bracket out of an old street sign and turn the switch sideways and mount to the upper fork pinch bolts. I haven't looked at it with the guards in place, so that may not work. Beautiful weather here tomorrow, so I'm riding, farkling can wait for later.

My bike is not stock and neither is the OP's. That might help some, but appears he is not having any luck

Halls fixed me up right. My water temp sensor was bad, tuned it and did some work on my throttle to the tune of $120 out the door. Bike runs WAY better and I am supper happy with that dealer and see why all reccomend them.

Almost done. Coming up before my Moab trip in April:

1. Highway Dirt Bikes handguards, mirrors, and underbar stabilizer mount, and steering stabilizer. I was impaled by my stock mirrors too many times.

2. D606 acquired today for the front. The D908 front only made it to 2600 miles.

3. Coolant temp sensor somewhere. Looking at drilling a hole in the top of the radiator and welding a nut (or weld a small bit of aluminum and drill and thread it). Threads from sensor included with the Trailtech Vapor look to be 3/8"-28, maybe 3/8-27 NPT.

4. New windsheild to replace the one I snapped off. Probably add a upper reatainer pin for severe offroad support.

5. Dirt tricks 47 and 15T sprockets and Z ring chain.

There is always more to do. When I am done, it is time for a new bike! In fact I was at Tasky's today (getting a replacment rear reflector - done - check) eyeballing the TE250. It is calling my name somethin' fierce.
