i'm thinking about taking out my seat foam and drilling some 1/2" holes from the underside, to soften it up some...this is a temporary measure as it might be several months before I get a Renazco.

anybody out there tried this? Good mod or waste of time?

It was my fault they cupped however as I didn't check my tire pressures and ran them too hard on the twisties ...hence back to the MT90's hoping they can take more abuse .

low 30's though sidewall says 38 max... Maybe I should ease up on the gas and break?

Those numbers seem really high for a 330 lb bike!

20-24 psi seems like it would be plenty for the street, 15-16 psi on dirt.
Ride and handling will improve significantly.

Why do you expect/need more than 3k miles out of tires on this bike?
Afterall, using the gas and brakes is the reason we ride!

GPS sensor

Has anyone done anything with the "electronic unit GPS" wire(white wire with red stripe behind head light)? It goes to the ECU but looks like an output from the alternator.

I was running low 20's for mud and trail which worked out pretty well considering the tread, looking at the max I assumed low 30's would sufice for street and country back road.
I am open to suggestion.

I would be careful with that. I heard of at least one guy frying the ECU by hooking up a GPS, don't know all the details...I'd feel better either getting a blessing from the dealer, or just hooking the GPS to a lead that's always hot and is fused properly.

You raise an excellent point:

Shopping Cart Items Qty. Price
HEADLIGHT GRILLE - $32.71 remove
HDLIGHT ASSY. RH TRAFFIC - . $46.80 remove
MOUNT, HEADLAMP - . $18.84 remove
WINDSCREEN KIT, ARCTIC WHITE, W/DECAL - $48.69 remove
HDLIGHT ASSY. LH. TRAFFIC - . $46.80 remove
Total: $193.84


Seems there is a LH as well and I'm guessing you need the matched pair This might explain the high dollars mentioned in an earlier thread though this does include the optional grill cover. No, I haven't made the plunge and ordered yet. I love the look of the Buell lights, but need to get geared up for the install...

My guess is this indicates the direction of the beam dip. It would dip to the right for those that drive on the right, as oppose to the left side of the road.

Check with Chris at Renazco before doing this as I believe they need to use some of your original seat foam when they are reconfiguring your seat.

Got the pig ready to ride

I finally got the last mod done so I am reasonably happy with my TE610. I could not ride the stock bike because of seat height and suspension that would not move. I now have 4,000 miles with no serious problems except several missing bolts. Sprocket nuts are crap, use nylocks and/or locktight. Modifications in order of importance are

Dunlop 606 Rear, 739FA Front
Renazco Saddle "leather"
Softer Damping 2 1/2" lowered by ESP
Utah Skid Plate
Cyrca Guards
WER Damper
ICO Odometer with bike power
76C on RAM mount with bike power
Countdown Roll Chart Holder
Baja Designs H4 Headlight
Chase Harper Number Plate Bag
UFO Tail Light
Heated Grips
Leo Vince Slip On
JD Jetkit
