I would give the motor a good first run and let them work out the bugs prior to getting one.

I reckon you are right, it does look like a good match. Re clutchless changes, I'm going to be disappointed if that was the cause, as I find the clutch quite heavy for my dainty wrists. I suspect it was fine 99% of the time, but just took a couple of dud shifts to do the damage. I ordered a full gearbox off a wrecker in the UK yesterday. Looks like time to bite the bullet and learn how to strip the engine. Cheers Peter

I gave up on the petcock on my 07 TE610 - I am always pulling the tank off and have had to repair that little wire on the petcock too many times.

Dan at Motoexotica sent me the old style one from a pre 2006 610. It has as on/off/reserve setting and no wiring.

Any one know how many gallons until reserve needs to switched on?

This will be of no help, but I have nothing to do!
My 2000 goes about 75 miles to reserve #1 goes on, then another 10 miles till reserve #2 goes on. Unsure of total distance possible.
It had a low fuel light but it was disconnected before I got the bike. I get around 42 MPG at highway speeds.

Quick question. I know wheels from older 450-610's fit my current 08 610. Does going back as old as 2001 still apply? Also the guy says it's off a TC. Wheel is complete and cheap, but not local, so I want to make sure before I commit.

Wanting to source hubs and have them laced to 17's and save me some funds since it seems only Talon makes hubs for this bike other than OEM of course.

Uptight Tank

Was ordering some things from George yesterday , I asked him about the tank for the FI models. He said soon, it will use a remote pump; he is currently working on how to address the high amount of water and such in the gas we currently have to burn. The pump housing sounds like it will have to have a drain so it can periodically be purged of water and crap from the fuel. If you have seen small aircraft being flown this is a daily ritual for the pilots. I would gladly go through this to get a larger capacity of fuel. I also asked about the hydraulic clutch, and he said it was also not long off, being tested now.

Awesome! I would love to lose the stock tank and the massive fuel pump and all its plumbing.

Rad also makes hubs that work. I have a set of their Eagle hubs for my SM setup. I got them through Woody's Wheel Works in Denver.

I don't want to answer your fitment question since I cannot say with certainty that it will work.

Thanks, Did Woody put a cush drive out back on yours?

That was an option for $200 (at the time). Since it has a "cush clutch", I passed on that option for my setup.

I can't take credit for this picture...
