Thanks for signing in Jon,
Good luck on the ignition issue and keep us informed especially if you dyno as I have yet to see any for the 610 Before and After...
Btw, Is that an Axe? ...

It's and axe and a chainsaw. We were doing trail work that day. The guy's I was with were on a Gasgas 250 and a KX250F.

I'm HERE!

I bought the TE610 off of another member of this site (you can probably guess who!), and I can't be happier. He really took great care of it and shared a ton of information about the bike w/me before I bought it. Everything runs great, and the Renazco seat is super comfortable.

I really wanted something with a little more 'umph' than the DRZ without a lot more weight, and the TE fits that perfectly. I've not taken it off-road yet as the knobbies are not yet mounted. I went w/the stock MT-21's to replace the street tires.

Here she is coming home for the first time about a month ago.

Thanks for starting this thread Dan - it's really great to see how much attention and dedication you're giving the Husky's on this site.

Thanks Everyone,
It's great to see everyone signing in, I know there are a few more of us ...
I am really thankful Baldy has created a home for us here.
Many people on the board have taken the time to give me advice and assistance and what little I can contribute is really my way of saying thanks to all of them.
Nice idea for the Sign in Link...

I thought the TT mounts worked with the crossbar?
I just ordered the 60CSx lockable mount, am I not going to be able to use crossbar?

Dan

p.s. You're welcome Hoder, I will keep up with the index and build our info base...

Thanks for signing in Ditch,
Does your handle imply bad habits

Bad Habits

Yeah Dan, I tend to gawk at neat rocks, trees, perky nippled hikers, (there were plenty of them in Aspen last Sunday!) , I ran off the road once on my H-D and the moniker was applied by friends who saw it happen.

Had mine since mid-March, but only really started to ride it about a month ago: too many other bikes, and the saddle is a butt-breaker for longer rides.

The Renazco has just gone on, which should rectify that problem, and the Tecate (Baja Designs) headlight is mounted, debugged and a huge improvement over stock.


Jury is still out on the Renazco for multi-day adventure rides. It's much better than stock, and not at all too wide for trails, but still a bit narrow for those 500 mile days... Maybe the Sweet Cheeks will be a useful add-on option.

Look closely and you will notice the impressive way the head angle has been modified so that the front wheel is closer to the frame via custom "arched" forks

The fender is a one-off custom - don't even bother to ask about getting one of your own. Handlebar bend is high end OCC stuff as well



Stay tuned and I'll post when I get her back together again. Looks like she'll be gettin' some high zoot front suspenders (maybe even rear too) and some hoity toity tree/clamp/damper mount too
Passmore,
Would that light work for street riding? Could you tell us more about it please? TIA
