I own both ('00 DR-Z and an 09 TE610).... I like both.... the 610 feels lighter with a bit more ooomph... You really can't go wrong with either bike. If you wanna farkle, go with the Zook.... if you want "one" in the parking lot, the 610 is really hard to beat. Personally, if I had to pick one, the Husky gets the nod.

Im thinking of replacing my WR450 with a TE.

Currently I gear my bike differently for the application.

Should I flog the Wr and get a TE610 (carb) or keep the WR?

Ride plenty techincal terrain, sand dunes and hare scramble terrain

I would keep it & have both. I have done a hare scramble on the 610 and it was a challenge.

Considering a TE-610 to add to the stable

You guys have got me drooling and dreaming after reading this thread, or at least parts of it. I've got a 2002 XR650R that replaced my 2007 XR650L this summer. I really like both bikes, but the L was stolen, and I could afford a used, plated R, so I went that way.

I really like the looks of the '08+ TE-610 and the EFI would be nice as I go from 900' to 7000' in elevation from time to time. I know the CCT has a limited life and the cam chain tends to need replacement around 10,000 miles, given riding style, maintenance, etc. There was also a mention of the connecting rod needing replacement about the same time, but I haven't found anymore on that subject, (there's a lot of info to wade through on this thread.) Can anyone clarify this. I put 12,000+ miles on my L in 18 months before it was stolen, so this may be an issue for me.

It probably won't happen soon, but I'd really like to park one next to the R.

-Joe

The BRP is a worthy comparison to the TE. But BRP has much more torque...

I think the connecting rod was an error in the manual. Anybody replaced a connecting rod? I got 15,000 on mine.Running strong.

All I can say is I asked all over the planet before I trqaded my ZRX for the TE610 and no one has ever sais anything about reliability except the well known cam chain and tensioner every 10K or 12K. Mine is new wityh about 1000 miles on it now...the cam chain and tensioner that is. The bike has about 10k on it now. Runs great.

I think there is a correction to the manual which lists 50,000 kilometers for the rod.

that is like 32k miles....that is a ong time for a big bore thumper to go which is good! I would alos bet that the factory is very conservative in their estimates like this as well. Ill bet a guy with good maint can go 50k miles easy on one of these.

Power bomb headers...

Why no power bomb headers for the TE610?
