Flashman,

I also rode part of Rincon Trail, but loaded down for a trip it was really wrestling for me. Also being out alone I try to pick and choose my battles a bit more. You could get a Chrysler up the road pictured, might lose your muffler around the corner where it gets a bit rougher. YMMV

I could go fast enough on that road with my Husky that a Chrysler driver would have to be pretty bold to keep up.
I´m no very fast... But my bike is.

I am loving this bike!



The TE610 has loads of low power, rides light and quick in the dirt, and can make some good distance on 3.3 gallons at 60+ MPGs.

So, after 750 miles and some other nonsense, I settled on a handful of minor additions to my TE610 that i'd like to pass on - as most of them were gleaned from these pages from all of you - thanks!

THE NUMBER 1 most important thing I needed for this bike! A new seat - i found the stock to be literally un-ridable after 100 consecutive miles.

I settled on a custom seat from Renazco Racing! I have found A** Bli**! Very Impressive work by Chris and worth every penny!


NUMBER 2 - luggage
Not sure how durable the panniers will be, but I still see them on several of 06-07s. Recommend promoto billet rack and panniers. Dirt Bagz toolkit on top.

NUMBER 3 - should be standard....SKIDPLATE
I got mine from Uptite - looks cool, but no true bash tests yet. I'd like to see how others have held up. Photos?

I also added 1 inch risers to the bars - now i can stand very comfortably in the dirt.



One thing i'd like to find is a smaller license plate and light rear assembly.
Any one recommend any winners? Or any other must haves?

Cheers! hope this can help someone.

Thanks for posting up your modifications. A Renazco seat looks like something I'll be getting.

Baja Designs makes a rear LED light & fender that replaces the stock fender; I think several other owners have them and like them.

I have been using the Baja Designs rear tailight fender assembly, LED, for the past 3,400 miles. It takes just a bit of whittling to fit the way I wanted it to but works great. I will try to post a picture later if I can uncover my camera.

RPM question

Can you TE610 owners tell me the RPM's the engine is at when going the following speeds in 6th gear with stock factory sprockets?

55 mph
65 mph
75 mph

Also, what RPM does the rev limiter kick in at?


Next, with stock gearing, what rpm does the engine turn at 10 mph in 1st gear?

Well I just had another battery bite the dust!! This will be the bike's (2006 te 610) third. (The first one thats died on me). I know the stock one is crappy, but how are your batteries holding up? Any good alternatives? I know batteries were recently talked about here.......I guess I can't operate the "search" function correctly.

My first post as a TE610 owner, I bought a 2007 w/ 1000 miles on it early September and have been loving it so far. I've been thinking about dropping down to a 14T in the front, and did some calculations on how it would change the RPM at different speeds.

As a reference to the following charts, I did verify the calculations at three different points, 4th, 5th, and 6th gear w/ speeds of 42, 55, 62, and RPMs of 4200, 4500, and 4200 respectively. The black numbers in white background are in MPH.

This may be one of your site's or already be posted here somewhere, but I just found it and thought it was worth posting again for anyone who didn't know about it. Some good info, descriptions and insight - maintenence etc.

After the first one, then oil changes every 3100 miles (not km). I do it more often.

This bike seems to be the perfect compromise. 220 lbs of me and 50 lbs of gear and it kept right up in California bay area freeway traffic. (Not saying I enjoyed it....) And now that my off-road skills are improving, it does fine in tight single track as well. (Though I'm sure a lighter bike would be better.)

For comparison purposes these are the results to a TE510 with changes to the front/rear sprockets for dual sport use. RPM is limited at 10,500.
