Thanks.
(oh, the reward for an answer is a couple of pics from last week, 5 days of offroad riding...)
Yes, I got them. I think you would need it to prevent the bolt threads from eating the carbon fiber.

Thanks for your help, Mrkartoom and Drrags! Ill have my dealer order the spacers for me.

Enjoy the pics! Sorry for the crappy quality, resized and poorified them to save some space (how sad is that in 2008, I mean come on, its not 1994 any more... Gonna have to talk to my web hotel :) )

First one is the view from my seat. All are from the northern half of Sweden.








Next one is a bear track we found when looking for a place to cross a river. Its fresh and on the same beach were on...

Leo

MrKartoom... How do you like the LEO now that you have logged some miles? I like the minimal sound of the stock 610 for hitting the woods... Even though my last ride was an ripped XT500 with about 15 discs in the SuperTrapp. I would go for the full system like you did if there is a real power gain. I think the bike needs some more grunt maybe a cam, header, can & re-map. What about the sound, it is difficult to tell from your video to determine the DB level without a rev or two. Lets here it !

I sent an email to IMS about tanks to suit the Fuel Injected TE-610, and this is their response:

Unfortunately, we currently have no official plans in place to make a tank for the new model. The currently fuel tank is unlikely to fit the fuel injected models, so it will need to be looked into. We know of no modifications that can be made for the current fuel tank. Sorry about that. Thanks for your email!

Howdy boyz!

This Wednesday, in two days, I get to pick up my new 2008 TE610

I have read most of this thread and I think I have suffered some retina damage because of it, what a MONSTER!

I talked-PMed to George@uptite about break in and stuff. I now know all that I ever wanted to know about Auto vs manual CCTs. I now know about the MIA fork adjustment. Hoses that need to be moved, 'Y's that can melt, wires that can be pinched, bolts and nuts loose or cross-threaded, leaky petcocks, melting body panel, disappearing displays, oaken seat.....are you-all sane? Am I sane?

Anything I missed, or any advice would surely be welcome!

Hose clamps are junk, replace 'em.

Regarding the Leo Vince muffler...it comes with several tips and a screen, giving you several different possible combonations. I've been playing with this, just by ear (not getting scientific with a db meter). When I get to more conclusions, i'll post for anyone interested. Overall, I don't notice much difference between the tips.

My mid pipe hits my starter and is grinding away at it. I don't have any more room to lift at the pipe. Anyone else have this issue? The only way out seems to smack the pipe with a Harley tool. I don't wanna do that.

Temporary fix would be header wrap, maybe if a piece of heavy rubber tube would fit over that, it could last a while

2008 TE 610 Price?

Hey Guys- I'm currently looking to buy a new TE 610. The only dealer around me that has any left in stock is asking a few hundred bucks over MSRP. After inquiring further they quoted me MSRP (7369). Are there any deals to be had on these bikes or are you guys just paying the asking price?

Spanker, myself and my friend Jeff did get a deal, but I am not sure if he is still offering this. At one time, he mentioned that he would give a discount to ADVRider members. You can contact Mike at MotoFIT, Danbury, CT @ 203 792-3900. Good Luck!! However... with shipping; you will be about where you are now.

Talk nice to Bill in Salem and he'll cut you a deal. He had a couple when I was down there two weeks ago, but he is moving them - they're hot sellers.
