I'm one of those guys. Both times I was standing on the pegs and hitting the transition to a steep hill climb. The 610 peg mount is the issue.... you have to make absolutely certain that the frame and peg face are 100% flat. Even upgrading to higher strength bolts won't prevent them from breaking if the faces are not flat.

I ground it flat some, but not perfectly and still broke the peg off with stronger bolts. Twice! ended up welding it. Problem solved.

My field repair in Hanksville, UT.

The stock bolts, like has been said are adequate if the surfaces match up evenly.The area surrounding the holes on the frame need to be checked too. Having a gap makes for a levering effect that multiplies the forces many times..

Good to hear your countershaft is holding up. I would like to get a cush hub, but the 800$ or so price makes it a bit expensive.
Woods Chick, who is around here some times, has ridden a lot of offroad with 17s on her 610.

A friend of mine gave me a barely used 110/100 Dunlop 695 rear. The Karoo is a 140/80. Is the Dunlop to narrow to use on 610?

Anything will be better than the Karoo off road!

FYI, can't this weekend and next weekend, I'm heading for 7 days of trail riding in KY, WVA and PA (on the 310). Keep in touch though. A friend in Windsor has taken me on some of that stuff. I'd really like to learn it better.

Wow! You really get around! Have fun! The 610 is getting the gasket replaced this week, so it wouldn't be until next week or so. Have fun.

I've got an '08 SM610. I'm trying to take the tank off. Can someone tell me how to disconnect the miserable plastic fuel line connectors before I destroy them? Thanks.

squeeze the white & red buttons on both sides and pull.

If it's not coming you gotta get the buttons in deeper. They are a bitch.

Also, be prepared for one to spew fuel, I take the crossover off the left side so I can attach it to the spout on the pump.

Maybe if you can get a squirt of lube to them it may help release - they are a bitch and often twisted away from one. Need to be very careful not to break the L connector into the fuel pump under the tank ... many have done this and an expensive mistake tht involves a new pump or lots of engineering tapping a new thread etc etc. As Xy says you need to press deeper and pull apart at same time. Also when replacing make sure they clip together well as they have a habit of not doing so and pissing gas everywhere

BTDT. Was on my way to work one day on the 610, some guy at a stoplight points at my engine frantically. I'm thinking, "yeah, I know it's a cool bike, buddy." Turns out that he was trying to tell me I was dumping gasoline all over the place. It was a loose connector; rectified in seconds once I'd pulled over.

Yeah and how I know ... ran out of gas and discovered a boot full of gas as well ... try and get that smell out!
