    The clutch may fit both but you might watch the case cover clearance. For the 450 I think there is a spacer (thick gasket maybe) they offer to use the stock clutch cover for certain models of clutch. I am using the Z-Start Pro. On my 2006 TE450 I used a 7602 aftermarket clutch cover with oil window. Does the TE610 require a spacer also? Do not recall seeing mention of it so probably does not. I found mine at discount at Thumpertalk store, combined it with a birthday discount they had offered. Not a place I think of by default.

    Looks good! Just need to change that fluid in the rear brake res. and you'll be all set. They use shit from the factory, it all turns black, but once you change it it will stay clear.

    on my husky.. :D

    I've been searching for a nice led tail light and never found a decent looking one.. So I just bought the brightest and best looking tail light I could find and retro fitted it. Its from a ninja 250 wich was $114 on ebay (blaster x model).

    I probably wasn't going to upgrade the light until I busted my original one while failing at doing a wheelie :uhoh anyway...

    Came in last night and this is what I've come up with..

    It isn't done and there are a few unnecessary holes in that piece of plastic :freaky but Ill buy new under fender plastic from husky, if it isn't much moneys of course, and itll be stock looking, intensely bright tail light with integrated orange turn signals....

    cheers

    You are correct, no spacer required for the 610/630 Zstart Pro.
    Good thing, because it be a tough one. Oil pump drive, filter etc.

    Yes. How far are your tubes raised in the clamps?

    The Motosportz guards rub too, but very little.

    Maybe not, mine looks like that also but it's not black it's blue. Flushed with the best value in high quality brake fluid you can buy.
    ATE Super Blue

    Then next flush switch to their identical formula brake fluid but amber colored TYP200 Amber. Makes flushing so easy and no waste, you know exactly when the old stuff is purged as the color changes. Keep alternating back and forth. Comes in metal cans also to keep out moisture for a longer storage life also.

    Could you remount the fender a little more forward?? Just re-drill holes to get the clearance?? Or hear gun and mold plastic a bit?? Motoz just touch, can't even feel it at all. [​IMG]

    Btw uska, nice job on the tail light! Did you know Sicass makes a plug and play unit that's pretty bright ( led ) and really cleans up the back of the bike

    "Does anyone else have this problem with 7602 radiator braces??"

    Yes, mine rubbed on the 630. I rounded the offending corner of the braces with a small grinder or could use a file. I also added a couple of washers on the rear bolts of the fender mount. Lots of clearance now.

    Looking good! Needs to get dirty. Wait until a bit of a thaw, then hit the level B roads over in the Loess Hills. You will have more mud than you know what to do with!

    Don't know about 7602, but I did have to trim the fender quite a bit to clear my Bulletproof Designs guards. Not a big deal to me.

    Just use masking tape to make a nice, smooth, symmetrical line to trim to. If you're going for perfect, you'll probably have to go back and do it a few times, since the fender is bent by the contact. As the interference reduces, it unbends itself, making more interference.

    I think he got pissed off when I argued with him on if the the TE610 engine was stronger than a Suz DRZ 400 - I owned both concurrently and rode them both for different rides - my DRZ had the pumper carb and other upgrades.

    I KNOW the TE610 kicked the Suz but LB thought not.

    I made the mistake of saying that HIS 610 might of been a little sick and he got pissed off.

    22,000 miles on my 610 and going strong.

    Thanks... And yeah, I've come across that light but I didn't really like it either... the price is pretty steep for this one but I think its money spent well due to the fact that it fit really nice and how bright it is.

    About the fender/radiator problem.. Thanks on the input. I'm going to find out how much the fender is from the new huskies. Maybe I could make it fit and it solve this little problem, plus I really like the way the flatter ones look.

    Another thing, while installing the light, I found out my rear fender is off to one side by maybe half a cm. Must've bend the rear sub-frame when I looped the bike. :( :muutt
