The 650 GS has a hydraulic tensioner, is a different mechanism.

Oaxacuzano, I stand corrected, I thought it was a constant tension, spring-type CCT.

510-610 skid plate compatibility

How hard would it be to adapt a 510 skid plate to a 610 frame? What are the differences in the two? I haven't had a chance to check out a 510 so i've got no idea.

Question Help!!

I am purchasing some new wheel bearings (front and rear wheels) for my 2007 TE610 and I looked up the Husky part manual... and you can call me stupid if you want ... but I can't work out what the part numbers and sizes are for the bearings and seals? Can someone who is familiar with this please help me out??

Found this posted by Geek earlier.
Front Bearing Reference
(I'm posting this here for anyone searching in the future.. i.e. next time I need front bearings and I search this thread )

Microfiche is wrong.. front wheel has two bearings dimmension: 25x42x9

The bearing number is 6905-2RS and is also known as 61905
(the 2RS means 2 rubber seals).

Local bearing place has to order them: $10.95 each.

Thanks to MSU Yooper for the PMs and Indy (who has the number correct above but the dimensions incorrect).
The outer seal rings are 32x47x7... and this is what I had confused in an earlier post when I claimed there were 3 bearings.

Also see post 6199 for rear bearing info.

Thanks Bass, that was super fast mate! I hope that Geek has an 07 and not 08 or that the two bikes share the same bearing parts though?

Nobody else has answered yet because it 3:30 am here in the states and most all normal people are still asleep. BTW, Geek's bike is older than an 07 judging by the color. However, Mrkartoom's bike is an 08 if that matters.

If those dimensions are correct, the bearing number is the 61905-2RS.
Atleast in Aus anyway.
Not sure where the 6905 number comes from?

Geek, I don't know but I can tell you this: get rid of it and replace with 5wt and lower oil to at least 120mm to increase air volume. I weigh 185 w/full gear and sometimes I'd like it even softer, especially for slow, stutter-type ruts and rocks.

Geek,

Sorry, I didn't notice you had an '06 with comp adjusters, I have an '08 w/o. I am a big believer in lowering fork oil level. It's easy to experiment with because you can add oil easily if it's too soft. When I put my comp adjusters in this month, I'm going to go as low as 160mm from the top and see how I like it.

The removal of the Copm to the front forks is tanks to the BMW, I hate those stupid cost reductions.

Other cost reduction es the removal of the cap in the left side of the generator to move the crank in order to put the piston in TDC to adjust the valves, for the 08 you need to remove all the left side cover.

Next cost reduction that i found is for the rear shock absorver, only has 2 adjusters instead of 3.

The last cost reduction is the removal of the switch to turn off the front lamp and leave on only the little light, some times called candle, I do not care this removal, but it is a cost reduction.

I think BMW should not keep making these stupid cost reductions and concentrate the efforts to fix the epidemic issue of the cam chain tensioner or the principal crank nut gear.

If you see their Xchallenge or X some think bikes are crap, they look like cheap chineese bikes.

What are you talking about ? BMW had not taken production over. Certainly not when the 08's were being designed. Thats Cagiva. Production cost reductions yes, but not by BMW.

Stock fork oil weight is 7.5w.

Reducing oil height beyond 4 inches is good for rocks, but I found I couldn't keep the front end up in whoops. So I am back to running a 4 inch oil level in the forks.

Tuning is definitely a personal deal. YMMV.

Hi guys, I'm about to buy a 01 TE-410 of a friend of a friends. This will be my first bike. Is there anything that I need to lookout for when checking the bike out? I plan on using the bike for some off road and more commuting. I understand that I'll have to learn the 4stoke shuffle kickstart.

Repair manual, where to get one?

I checked Clymers, Haynes, Chiltons, etc. and no one has a repair manual for the TE610. Those really came in handy over the years that I have owned bikes. Is there a good quality repair manual available for the TE610 '06/'07 model? Thanks.
