Yeah mate, I will win Erzberg on the 630 for ya! Because Erz is just what a 630 is built for eh! Its a lightweight competition bike not a dual sport!

Nice!! My Wolfman fender bag spent many a mile on my 610, now on my XRR and maybe someday on a 630.

You guys saying it's too heavy are goofy. My 2007 610 set up and ready to go with 5 gallons of fuel was 360#'s on a certified scale.

I happy you like your 610, and that you can beat 450 and 300 2T bikes on it. Were those dual sport 300 2ts?

Anyway If you think adding 30lbs. when redesigning an alredy heavy bike is good, well I dunno. . . . guess this is adventure rider.

I think it's sad that Husky has reduced the bike that put competition four strokes back on the map to a 330 pound pig. Anyone here remember Jacky Martens, 1993? Of course not this is adventure rider, silly me.

I have a 2000 TE 610 kicker, which was 259lbs. dry as tested by Cycle World in May 2000 and an '05 estart Berg 650 which weighed 251 dry as tested by Dirt Bike. The Berg is a competition machine, the 610 was a competition bike but detuned to trail bike status, but still pretty light, and reliable.

There's no reason a big bore reliable dual sport has to weigh 330 lbs. and dual exhaust is just more weight, but to street guys I guess weight is a plus.

FWIW, I weighed my fully fulled DR (ok, somewhat undressed, no blinkers, no pillion rails, no mirrors, but with different forks and an 18" rear wheel as well) at 158 kgs.

You do realize the two pipes was only to pass the sound requirements that they were already ultra close on????/ Two pipes, tall gearing, detuned power are usually always because of sound. The price we have to pay for a 50 state walk in the DMV plateable bike... big Fin deal. Give me 20 minutes and I'll pull 30 lbs off almost anything if need be and still stay road legal enough.

At least they have changed the airbox, but whether it's an improvement remains to be seen. Looks like they still have the same cheesy footpeg mounts.

I do remember Jacky Martins and still have the DirtRider from then. You are dead-on and I'm with you. Carry on.

KTM is doing the same with their 510cc displacement. It was used in the 520, 525, and the 530 bikes.

TE610's when the suspension is set correctly are lightning fast and easy to control through anything you throw at them. You have got to get your sag and clickers right!! They dont need a dampner, but if your 6 feet or over you need a set of 35mm risers and decent bars. Immideatly get rid of the standard muffler and let the thing breathe.

The Mallee masters in South Australia is 2 days of 1st and second gear single trail. Tightest monkey butt inducing snot you could ever get con'd into riding. Lower the front 3 notches then set the sag and it handles like a 250. Then in the straights, no-one stands a chance. Not 530's not 510's not 300 2T. Out of the hundred or so riders I sat in about 10th the whole weekend!!

This new TE630 will not be a step backwards I assure you! The engine and EFI will be insanely smooth. The suspension will be adjustable. Just because they have no compression clickers means nothing. KLX450's dont either and they are winning endurance trials.

The Airbox is different not the same as some have said. It obviously seals a heck of a lot better and Im sure that when broken down it will be different too.

I am looking forward to my next bike and I will show you how good they are when I get one.

Stu
I sure love mine.....

so, worth waiting for a 630? or......

pick up a used 08 te610 now with low miles for around $5K - seems like dealers are letting go of the 09's for around $6.5 too....

spoke to Uptite today and they said 2010's will be in limited numbers and not until May/June

IMS 5 gallon tank with new frame?

Does anyone know how extensive the frame revisions are from the TE610 to the TE630? Will the existing IMS after-market gas tanks for the TE610 fit the TE630? I'd hate to have to wait another 2 years for a large fuel tank! Aqualine has left the Husky market to other manufacturers, and IMS took quite a while to put their 5 gallon tank on the market for the TE610.

There isn't even an IMS tank for the current EFI bikes, so there is no way it will work on the new 630.
