After Jim from easternbeaver asked me if both filaments could be lit for low beam, it prompted me to look on-line for an H4 plug pin-out. Even though this headlight uses an HS1 bulb (35/35w), it is the same wiring. I know some others have had this problem, so here's the correct wiring (as viewed from behind the lamp, center pin oriented up):


left pin = ground
center pin = low beam
right pin = high beam

Works like a champ now.
Found the same thing as you when I installed a new Baja Design headlamp assy this past weekend. The 55/60W setup really lights thing up well and the pattern from the reflector is great. One of the best improvements I've made to my 610 yet!

new owner here

I picked up my 08 TE610 today. Spent a couple of hours going over the various bolts some of you guys said might be loose. Good advice. One motor mount was not tight at all. Also the bushings for the rear turn signals were installed in the standard (wrong) place hanging on the wires. All easy fixes. I installed the Uptite skid plate, the front axle nut, and cut off the auto-retract sidestand thingie. Still to install are the Moose handguards and the Dirt Bags. I'm waiting on delivery of a Pro Moto Billet rack since the 08's don't come with the Husky version. I have not seen any obvious wiring loom issues such as wires pulled by zip ties. Too few miles for any real evaluation thus far, but my initial impression is a good one. The welds on the frame are top-notch. They are either done by a machine or by a real pro welder. Nice to see good work. I'll get a tank of gas through it this weekend, then delve into the filter cleaning procedure.
Thanks for all the info. Amazing thread. I'll report back when I have something to contribute.

greenlizard,

Welcome to the club, you should enjoy the bike! I have just over 2,000 miles and am loving the bike. I actually am in the middle of my first tire change, just came in to eat dinner before going back out to finish the job. Look through this thread for some very good info. Mostly just get out and get some miles on the beast.

I spent the entire day enjoying some of Colorado's finest single track.

Yeah.. some of it was a bit gnarly on a big bike like the 610... but that just made it that much more of an adventure

some people think if the lash is a bit loose they will sacrifice power...if you do the math, it would have to be very loose to affect lift and duration enough to be noticeable.
+1
But also be aware that too loose allows the rocker arm to hammer the end of the valve stem and accelerate wear. This applies to the 610 more than the shim/bucket adjuster of other bikes.
Just a data point Nothing else to see here

My shop has a set of Acerbis universal bar clamps hanging on their wall. I've never paid too much attention to them, but if they are what I think they are then Acerbis may have something.

Cycra has the "Magura" mounts that will fit the stock Tomaselli bars. I assume they will work with the Acerbis guards, but you'll have to verify. I have a set on my ProTaper Contour bars (KX Hi). Oddly enough their Protaper mounts did not fit them, but the Magura's did.

Dirt Bagz and LD pipe

Hey all - Just put on my Leo D slip on.

Was wondering if I still needed to put on the heat shield that came with Dirt Bagz.
