I think the solution is to put it out in the sun and warm it up.

Warming it up really does help, match up the front mount first then it'll drop onto the pins.

Does the YTX14-BS fit a 2009 610? I can't seem to find the answer, but seen it mentioned earlier in this thread where batteries are discussed. Not sure if they changed the battery in 2008 or 09.
Yuasa YTZ14S is the one you want. It is about an inch shorter than the stock unit.

Thanks, I was hoping there was a cheaper option to hold me for a bit. I am wanting to switch to a lithium, but just short on cash right now. My dad put a lithium in his bike and it seems to be working out really good. And its a ton lighter.

Did not work. If every time u have to pull the tank it has to sit in the sun to put it back on I will return the Pos.

I'm with you, getting it to fit on that first time was very frustrating, but I had to have the fuel range and the tank was only $200.

Yeah, after the first fitting I never had another problem. The shape gets messed up when the tank sits empty on a shelf.

IMS 2006/7 tank fit

With the weight of the fuel and the engine and radiator heat, it will shape itself well enough. Mine has taken a serious beating and keeps on ticking as well. You should see the gouges and scrapes on the lowers. Using it as a trail bike for a bit did not help. Have over 15K miles on that tank in 2.5 years now.

The only issue with fitting the OEM plastics I had is the screw on each side, very front over the radiator. Hole is somewhat oval, and I put a rubber washer under the screw head to help hold the piece from slipping outward away from the tank.

FYI, the bottom light is on high beam. Not bad for a $50 set up.

Hey 1lunger, I am curious about how you mounted it. A semi-permanent mount, yes? As you know I followed your lead with the light, but want to put it on the bike for certain occasions. i modified a RAM mount for that purpose. Can you share how you mounted yours?

It is extremely bright -- going to look into some night exploration!

We had ourselves a little tech day on St. Patrick's day. Ridealot, R6Jon, Little David and I did some fiddling with our 610's (three SM and one TE). In all we wound up with three valve adjustments (mine were way out, Ridealot and Jon's were pretty good), checked the cam chain tensioners (all good, one's gonna need a chain this summer I think) and I replaced my front and rear wheel bearings and seals as part of my annual.

What's was the mileage on these? Had the valves been checked before (600 mile check up)?

the zip-ties held it in place while I put hose clamps on. I also put some black duct tape around that part of the bar so it won't get messed up. I have 2" Rox risers which help the light clear the head light shroud. I assume the ram mount will do the same if you're at stock height. Did you get the spot or flood light? I got the flood and I like it. It lights 20' or more each side of the bike. I also have a 45 or 50w head light that's a bit better than the 35w stock one. The LED works with the head light and seems to send the high beam further and stronger. I know that sound weird, but it does. All in all, I like it! $50 was worth the chance and it ended up working really well! I know the high end lights are very lightweight, bright, smaller and look cool, but you just can't beat this for the money!

does anyone have a picture of the 610 with the tank off? im putting her back together and the left side radiator hose routing is giving me trouble, seems no matter where i put it, its twisted and squashed.

does it go inside or outside of the wiring harness?
