    Let us know what other TE fender you go with and some pic of it installed. I like the 449 and 511 fender too and assume that's what you're going with?

    Hey All,

    I just put on an Uptite muffler from George at Uptite Husky. It is pretty and quite effective; the bike runs much cooler now and about 25% faster (seat of the pants measurement). I have already done the resistor/PU upgrade too. This bike rips now, and the muffler is so cool you can almost touch it immediately after a ride. Way to go George.

    I am getting my bike ready for the TET S in a few weeks, the portion that circles Georgia. I've got a Giant Loop Great Basin bag for the rear and a Fandango tank bag upfront. I'll be installing a cigarette lighter to run my gps and phone this next week. I can't wait for this trip.

    I have a 2008 610 with 2400 miles, and the suspension has just started to break in. This is turning out to be a fantastic bike.

    The suspension on these bikes is a bit harsh in stock from. I highly suggest you have the suspension set up for your weight and riding style. It's one of the best improvements you can do next to a seat or tuner.

    I weigh 270 lbs; built like a "World's Strongest Man." So the suspension in stock form is quite alright.

    I put on a seat concepts seat - huge improvement. Also added an airhawk.

    I haven't done a tuner yet but I don't know what it would give me since I have already done the PU mod with a muffler. Please educate me why I should get a tuner for the 610. Will it give me more power?

    I could not believe the 2013 te449 front fender was only $14 from my local bmw dealer. Should get it by end of next week..

    Even with the power up these bikes run a bit lean. Add a pipe and pre filter air box mod and its even leaner. The tuner will allow you to ad fuel all through out the rpm range or if you're low on fuel and miles from gas, you could lean it out. You'll get a better throttle response, more power and cooler motor. Call JD jetting and they'll explain it very well.

    Mine is definitly not running too lean. I was thinking about getting a tuner so I could lean it out a bit. Its close, but just a tad on the rich side.

    I'm wondering if the settings can be a bit random, even after the power up, from bike to bike depending on how there were set at the factory? Another good reason to get a tuner.

    I think the magnet on the brake disc fell out and got lost and my speedo isn't working because of it. Could someone post a pic or send me a link of a pic of what these look like so I can verify one way or another? I don't have a clue what it's supposed to look like.

    Unhook your battery for 20 min and it will reset.

    No I have the Leo. Stock the bike was so lean there was ash on the plug. I wouldnt ride it until the kit came in. Mileage went from 65 mpg to 40-45 mpg after the pu kit. I'm Right around 10k miles on the motor now and the plug is a chocolate brown. I like to shoot for maybe a little closer to a leather tan. Most of my riding is close to sea level. Local Dez, Baja etc and it does run nice and cool. I think I've seen my fan come on maybe 3 times. I'm guessing having a tuner installed would allow me to make small adjustments depending on the conditions?

    Thanks for the pic. I'm a bit confused with the pic. Which side is that? Is that the side closest to the pickup sensor or on the opposite side of the disc? Reason I ask is that I've got what looks like the pic on the other side of the disc from the pick up sensor, but the side facing the sensor looks hollow...like a magnet may have been there and fell out. Anyway, I did unhook the battery and.....no luck.

    Can anyone with a 07 610 take me a pict of the clutch cable routing near the tank rad area? Mine seems very close to the rad cap almost to where if it moved just right it might open the cap up

    thanx

    I have the big IMS tank
