Great vid!!!! SG
Stroker,

I appreciate your attention to my light! Yes, it's a 45/45 watter from Dan at MotoX. The same ones he sells to everyone.

Yes, I'm shifting in the air. I usually bring it up in 2nd then shift to 3rd and 4th to ride it out depending on how fast I want to go. 3rd or 4th have plenty of juice to keep her in the balance point for as long as you want to go....just got to watch oil scavenging!

Thanks again for trying to fix my light. I guess you noticed it on in the video huh? And that was low beam dammit! Just so you know I bought two from Dan and tried them both...still doing the same thing.

You could take him on a date too..........




How are those 45 watter bulbs compared to stock? Should I spend the 50 bucks and get a higher output bulb or will the 45 be sufficient? I rarely do night riding, and if I do its in the city....

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

-Ted out there taking chances

PS I'm glad the humor wasn't lost in translation. It's never sound policy to risk homo jokes on motorcycle forums; it can go bad real fast. I mean that's what I've been told.

Hi 123: I'm stumped on your light, and I think I saw your icon in the video......LOL I'm wondering now if it's the whole head light that's the problem with all of ours???? Nobody with a 610 SMR has had the complaint that I'm aware of. We'll get to the bottom of it some day. The last time I tried shifting in the air, guess what happened???? Are you useing the clutch???? and are you dropping the wheel a little before the shift, then powering back up????? I'm fascinated by the darndest things........


Great video again..... SG

I'm in!

Last week I asked for a little advice on the Te-610/510. Well I made my decision and am the proud new owner of a 2007 TE610! Thanks for sharing such great information. Looks like I'll get the IMS tank, a more comfortable seat, and some Dirtbagz.
I'd like to recommend Don at L&D Race Tech in Warrenton OR. He was awesome to work with. He handled all of the tax and licensing work for my state (WA) and the plate and rack were installed on my bike when it was delivered. Don even drove the bike several hundred miles to the halfway point to meet me!!! I thought customer service like this went out in the 80's. Somewhere along the way about 5 lbs. of hoses and other unnecessary stuff fell off too! Thanks for the great service Don!

Thumbs down for my local dealer who had no interest in my business. Unfortunately I've already purchased two new bikes from this shop in the last 3 months yet they stated they were not big Husqvarna fans and wouldn't take the time to order me a 610. (can you believe they are the local Husqvarna/KTM/BMW dealer in N. Idaho) In the end I'm glad they forced me to go elsewhere.
I just returned home with the bike last night at 11:00pm. After a few shorty blips around the "Hood" I had to turn in. I rode the bike about 12 miles to work this morning and all I can say is wow! I think I made a great decision- more to follow when I have something better to share.

P.S. It wheelies just fine

Laugh Got curious today - brought out the bathroom scale:

Front Rear Total
Drz400s 148 165 313 about a gallon and a half so - 8lbs(?)
TE610 147 168 315 about a gallon in the tank so - 6lbs

For all intents and purposes the bikes are the same weight. The performance differences are astounding. My Drz400s has a 3.9 Clark plastic tank, dirt bagz on back , and TT case savers (weightless really) both have bash plates..
Suzuki was off by about 4.7% but then, it was a bathroom scale, and I'm damn sure it's been lyin' about me! Subtract out the fuel in the Husky and it's 309.

The TE610 really is the upgraded DRZ!
