I just can't justify tearing all the goodies off a great bike to change color and odometer reading.
You can't sell the '06, it's the faster (and highly sought after) yellow/blue model

Your right. This is my 3rd 06 and I love it. The 07 is too pretty to abuse properly

07 is for sale.

And the really sucky shot.



This is the High Park fire in CO. Over 230 homes lost. About 15 miles north of my house and it has taken out some good riding areas as well.

JD tuner is on the shopping list for mine. I have done the PU, got dealer to reprogram ECU and put on Barett pipe but it feels as it is still being held back. Once I have the JD tuner I will open the air box up some more.

common, i am still on my break in miles and already getting hooked on mods. I think it runs pretty sweet as is.. for now
does the jd have pre loaded maps, auto mode or you do the tuning yourself? i'm sure this has been covered so i'm going to search

Take the pads out and with a hacksaw cut a slot through the pad material almost to the steel plate the pad material is on.

The slot must be at right angles to the rotation of the disc. [as per a clock hand bisects the arc of a clock face]

This is an old motor mechanic trick used years ago when disc brakes first came out on cars and were much more prone to squeaking and squealing.

Might just work on your bike too.

Don't know what color the factory fill is, but that fugly green just might have been Motul. 300V is what lets me find neutral when the bike is running, and is a very good oil.

I find that mine shifts into neutral easier and easier the more miles I rack up...honking clutch and all.

does anyone know the ID (Inner Diameter) of the stock TE610 handlebars, towards the end where the grips attach?

thanks
