    My Poor abused bike. Today I had a little boo-boo where I was accelerating kinda hard, checked my 6 and when I looked up there was a semi braking hard for a barely yellow light.

    I got on it pretty hard, but the rear started sliding and it was clear I was gonna thump him. I started to veer left but there was a car coming, so I had to lay'r down Lol.

    The rear did a near perfect slid putting the bike horizontal under the bumper and the back tire impacting the semi's tire.

    All-in-all pretty amazing result.

    I got up and got the hell out of there!

    OK, so later, I discovered that I'd torn the muffler mounts out of the subframe. and I got a dramatic increase in my ongoing oil leak where the shifter punched the stator cover (but to be fair there's also a crack that I think may be the cause of my previous leak)

    And I guess I must have been on the brake pretty hard, cuz about 1/2 hour later the footpeg popped off.

    OK, so sorry that was so long-winded...

    Who makes the bling clip-on rear brake toe thingy?

    Anybody got a lead on a stator cover less than $200?

    I slapped some quicksteel on and rode it to Portland an back. Oh and so naturally the cam chain that I've put off fixing for a year is now rubbing the reed valve. I'm gonna give it some love soon, just in time for winter. I promise.

    Sucks that the bike took some damage, but the statement above is the key. Glad to hear you walked away unhurt. Bike can be fixed.

    Yeah, hurt my pride pretty bad, which is surprising cuz really after all this time you wouldn't expect there to be much left.

    Aaron, you can get a brake pedal from Bill's for $25. Since you're up north, maybe try Tasky's. I bent mine beyond repair about 6 months ago and Bill had one in the glass case. I forgot who makes it though, but you could call him and he could tell you. It comes in red anodizing and it's not made for the TE-610 but with some finagling it'll work. I'll try and send you a pic in a few hours.

    For the Stator cover try Fran Bottone @ Jo-Bet cycles. I get all my parts through him and I thought he quoted me that cover for around what your are looking (this was last year though).

    Edit: I called Jo-Bet cycles and they are closed. Fran moved over to 6V motorsports. The number on the machine was 814-368-5500. Not sure if he will be able to help there or not, but couldn't hurt to check.

    Anyone have the torque spec for the rear sprocket on the 610?

    Good to hear you made it with only just a few ruffled feathers.
    It's probably bad luck to say this, but on more than one occaision I have been surprised when somehow I've been able to lay-er down and avoid what I was sure would be really bad news.

    You going to make it down for The Gathering this year?

    Hmm, I've dumped this post in a few places now but I'll throw it here too in case other 610 riders are intersected and haven't seen it.





    An idea taken from PowerCell in this ADV post though I had done something similar with TE610 tapping and threading the EFI plate. I've had two of the KTM/Husky style petcocks fail now, and I hate not having an easy quick release that stops the fuel flow. I mean I really hate having to deal with gas pouring out, so while this is overkill it's also damn convenient.


    I took off one petcock and took some measurements and drew this up. Everything is in mm.

    I might adjust the 34.5mm to be a touch wider, and I did adjust the o-ring depth to 1.2mm. The test prototype with the stock o-ring and a plug has been holding fuel just fine.


    The part I ordered to work for this was from quick couplings LCD10004V - 1/4 NPT Valved Coupling Body w/ Viton seal and the matching part quick coupling LCD23004V - 1/4 Hose Barb Valved Elbow Coupling Insert w/Viton seals and they had the best prices I found anywhere. To give you an idea, fast by feracci sells the same parts for $29 each......


    These are what I came up with using some aluminum and borrowing a friends older mill with homebrew DRO, and small lathe.

    The parts

    Putting one together, wouldn't want to do it while on the tank so I lugged it down with drywall screws to the benchtop.


    [​IMG]


    Installed right side.


    [​IMG]


    Installed left side.

    In either case if the fuel like seems like it is too close to the header I'll get some Fuel Line Heat Shield



    And since I was doing this with the 610 I went ahead and did the same thing for the crossovers on the 950SE too.

    Looks really nice! This will do away with the whole bottom plate that bolts to the bottom of the tank?[​IMG]

    I'm thinking those have to be for carbed bikes...

    I didn't look at it well enough, he's replacing the petcocks on each side, not the pump mount.

    I never had any trouble with those and I've had my tank off more times than I'd like.

    Well, actually.................

    I pulled the plastic 90's. I just know I would manage to break those at some point playing in the rocks. The parts were a 3/8" NPT quick release coupling with a 3/8" barbed 90. You pull out the plastic 90 and tap it out. It was a touch of a scary prospect really. But I did it a couple of years ago and haven't had any trouble with it. Flow volume seems fine.

    The motivation for the new work was for the 950SE mostly. But the 610 crossover petcock failed and I didn't feel like messing with it when I had the other system ready to go...... that one uses 1/4" fittings. I might change the left one out to have a street 90 as to allow better clearance to the header pipe.

    I think this would work for any bike that has that style of petcock.

    The gallery of pictures are here.
