Honestly, I thought the most interesting thing (after the fact that it was a first post) is that there was fault found with the cop (who loves 'em when you are getting pulled over - but no tail light AND out of date reg equals quotas AND safety), and seemingly he has issue with the shop that required that the money be repaid, which seems to be agreed to by the OP, or that they get the bike if the guy goes deadbeat. I am shocked that a shop was cool enough to get the bike out of impound to begin with!

Move to Brooklyn, they would have laughed when you asked them to get the bike out of lock-up, and broken your knee caps for asking.

hmmmm. Trying to see where the charity case is here....

I fell for it too...opened mine up at 15,000 to deal with "honking clutch", and made sure I ordered the washers/cups from Indy because everybody assured me they had already been hammered for thousands of miles...yeah, they were fine.

First I ever heard of these but I really like the concept. Please post back asap some videos and your review of them. I've resisted the bulky GoPro, Contour, Swan, etc. cameras so far but this I would consider buying. Here is their website I found:
http://www.liquidimageco.com/product...-384-all-sport

Also I couldn't find any links for ordering spare parts. For this product to be viable a readily available current and future supply would be mandatory. Don't want to be forced to shelf your expensive camera due to no lenses, strap or foam seal.

Not a difficult install, but can be a bit confusing if you've never done before. I had not.
I bet that is awesome on the 610. I've always liked the Rekluse setups and I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

Glad to hear you are enjoying the 610! It definitely was a fun bike.

Fell for it implies a scam and is really unfair to Indy who's selling a really nice quality product that 610 owners do need.

Your experience is the outlier, PLENTY of us have had the washers come out ground up in the oil. At which point honestly it's too late.

I fell for all the "if you have over 10,000 miles on your bike, you will need these parts" comments. Did I misread them? Yes, it's a fine quality product...that I paid a somewhat premium price for...that I bought based on these comments...that I didn't need.

YMMV and all that.

Yes. The original clutch got a thorough inspection when I did the cam chain at 19k.

My clutch has never "honked" as described all over the internet. I had the same inspection results.

Note that I am neither slamming anyone nor accusing anyone of being a scammer. Indy's pieces look great - for those who need them. But, as we've seen, clutches (and cam chains) and their lives are as different as the riders that use them. We've seen people reporting cam chain replacement at 5k, some around 7500, I did mine at 19k, there are guys in the 20k's that are on the original. Perhaps the TE guys are harder on their clutches, brakes and throttles than us SM guys...But I doubt it.

Everyone in California who purchases a car or bike, must follow up with the sales tax at the DMV. Your statement that "the idiot cop" who pulled you over for a tail light out and impounding for 1 month expired registration baffles me. I looked up the rules in the vehicle code. 22651 (O) VC is...

(A) With a registration expiration date in excess of six months before the date it is found or operated on the highway, public lands, or the offstreet parking facility.(o) (1) When a vehicle is found or operated upon a highway, public land, or an offstreet parking facility under the following circumstances:
This means popo can't impound it until AFTER 6 months expiration. Also, I know motorcycle registration isn't that high. Even for my '09 Ultra Classic, it isn't that high. The fee is usually equivalent to the value of you car/bike. Mercedes Brabus or Maybach= a monthly mortgage payment. A few year old dual sport bike= a couple $100.

I have several motorcycles that are all current in registration AND insured. Some are toys, some are therapy and sometimes commuter. But unlike most of the state, I try to stay within my budget. If I can't afford it, I do with out it..for the most part.

ps, the idiot cop was doing his job. Maybe this month, en light of the Connecticut tragedy and thinking about what 1st responders have to go through, and with the many depressed people who commit suicide during the holidays and the 1st responders have to deal with it, maybe...just mayyybe we could thank the LEO's who are there to trying to keep us safe, Instead of placing fault on them. It's just a suggestion and only my $0.02.

I finally did the copper bushing on my clutch - so yes I had the clutch out of the bike - washers were just fine - even though I have Indy's on the shelf - oh and I have 22,000 miles on my 07.
