I'm not sure I got the O2 plug. It came installed, but not hooked up (for the power up).

Is the spare filter denser? The dealer didn't know why it was included.

I don't think I got the noise plug. Eetz kinda loud.

I noticed the brackets, but is there a preferred location to use them? They stick out big time, just wating to be torn off. I wound up ordering some flush LED signals and and Rear light/frame from DRC.

Nice, did you get it at Taskys?

I have an 09 TE310. (Uncorked of course) The bike is great for what I bought it to do. I picked it up new for less then 6K. I couldn't see paying over 8K for the (New and Improved) 2011 since I'm not planning to race. As mentioned in this thread, its no real dual sport more like a dirt bike with a plate. I have ridden it to ride locations but its vibes on the highway are taxing. I really like the power. You can't compare it to the anemic 250 DS like the WR250R and KLX250S for off road work. But the gear box is tighter and its not as highway freindly. If you had to only pick one bike to own, this wouldn't be my choice becase of its offroad oriented nature. Luckly I have others, each set up for their own special use.

The biggest drawback to this bike.......mine is an 07 TE250 is its ability to go more than 50 to get around. I did my first spring ride yesterday up the Scroon River Rd. to check out the flooding and the bike just wants to go 45 or less. All those gears and why not just give us an overdrive gear? Yea, I'll try 14/50, the bike came with 13/52 and 13/50 and I like the 52 for woods riding. This is where the bike is at home, in the tight woods.

Sometimes I really miss my trusty KLR250, it didn't do anything really good but it did do everything I asked. This is why folks have more than one bike, there is no one bike that does it all and shines doing it. Again, I think Husky missed an opportunity here, give me a 6th gear beyond the ratios of the first 5 that will let me run 60 mph at 5500 rpms. It may seem strange to hit that gear but who runs 6th gear in the woods. Just the factory boys being true to their 6-day roots which always includes some road work but they decided to run top speed on the rev limiter.

Solid bike. I love mine. I've clocked over 400 miles off tarmac on it.

Protip: don't let it fall on your foot after going over the bars on a landed jump.

What the hell did you do that for?

By chance, did you have Mark (MXTuner) set up your suspension? He had a few TE's through his place last year.......looks like a cool bike, I'm kicking around the idea of one for myself.

Well, a testament to this bike: I didn't break a single thing on this bike in the crash. I wish it were the other way around, me breaking the bike rather than my foot.

My suspension was adjusted by the previous owner who was a good 1/2 foot taller than me. I still haven't adjusted it to my height which is probably why I high-side often

Should I PM Mark?

WTH? Wasted 3 hours. Most disappointing RR I have ever read. Seriously, some explanation deserved. Shit happens but to just desert?

'How well would this bike work for a 6'2" 190lbs guy? I have been doing some research and watching vids on it and it looks rather small? I have been mainly looking for a crf450X as an all around singletrack to slickrock type bike thats legal. Im not a super fast rider but i like putting the gas on. right now I ride a 96WR250 but its not easily plated and was hoping to make the big move to 4 strokes.

I'm 5'8'' and weigh 165lbs. It's a perfect fit for me. You will prob flat foot any dirt bike you are on due to your height. I would at least try to test ride this bike. Me thinks you may need a KTM though.

I'm the same size and the bike feels like it was made for me.
