My stock mid exhaust pipe is leaking at the weld on the mount for heat shield. It's an 09. Can I get a welder to fix and what's it made of SS, TI, tinfoil?

Looks good and I'm totally with you on the price point and overall value of this application. I got the flood light too. It's bright as hell! I also have 2 inch risers (Highway Dirtbike); depending on how I angle the RAM it either sits at about the height of yours or up to 3-4 inches higher. I haven't ridden with it yet, but might get in a DS run Friday. We'll see if the tension mounting of the RAM is sufficient for 2 lbs. . . says it's rated to 5, but I'm a bit skeptical.

6000-ish miles on Ridealot's 08 TE and R6Jon's 09 SM, barely 3500 on David's 07 SM, and my 07 SM has almost 22,000 miles on it. Jon's is gonna need a chain later this year, he was at 9 clicks out, Ridealot was at 5 or 6 I think, we didn't check David's cos it's so new and didn't check mine cos I did the chain last fall at 19,000.

Hopefully helpful.






Light looks good 1 lunger, makes the stocker look like a candle, can you take a pic from behind the light so we can see the projection.

Has anybody put a kicker on their later model TE or SM? The bosses are in the clutch cover for it, I wonder if it's as easy as punching out the knock-out and installing all the bits?

From the research i have done on the FI models its not worth doing. Apparantly they cant be kicked fast enough to get them started.

I lost the worn one form my TE610, but this picture is the same problem.

The left one is a brand new, the right one is a worn out bearing shaft

Is that the cam follower? Are we not feeding it pressurized oil?

Here you go poppy... withoutwith.
The pic is with a phone sitting on the bike and really didn't do it justice. It lights up the sides of the road very well and out as far as stock light. I got it for woods at night and I think it works great for $50!

I guess when I said "later models" I shouldn't have said that, mine is an 07, the last carbied year. FI "slow-spin" starting issues aren't a concern.

I've done a couple of conversions and they start easily with between one and three good kicks, however none have, nor were ever tested against the stock ECU. I use uS controllers which come before the kick starter so that when necessary the bikes could reliably run 91RON or Opal fuel and closed loop under cruising load conditions while addressing a few other fuelling and timing issues properly.

The mechanical side is relatively straight forward. There are a couple of minor niggles with the biggest being the stock airbox getting in the way of the lever. It required a cut and shut in two places to offset the lever. I was able to get a working compression release which makes all of the difference.
Kick start gearing is fine and is pretty much as it should be for a large capacity single regardless of what you'd read elsewhere. If it is too low, then it is only in relation to the electrical/electronic components. I came at it from the other end with the electronics the problem, not the kick start mechanicals. In the case of my 630s, the mechanical components work exactly as they should.
Wonderful, excellent information, thank you. Again FI issues are irrelevant with my bike, I should have mentioned that, didn't even think of it.

But it sounds like it might be wasted time, money, and weight. I've just always been a fan of having a back-up.
