    I don't mind it being low at this stage...I was just surprised how low it felt in comparison to my DRZ...I'm no motocross rider so I rarely even leave the ground :)

    I'll have to do some more research:)

    Had a quick look at that link (thank you) and mine does not have that fitted for sure...

    Seems strange that it is so low.

    I'll get the tape measure out and check it...sure I've seen the standard seat height in the manual somewhere...I assume the measure is taken in the middle of the seat or perhaps at it's lowest point actually?!

    OK so I measured the seat height at a hair under 36" as per the specs for the SM (TE is taller)...it feels so small...it's brilliant...all this power and fun in such a tiny package!

    Yeah the SM wheelset will sit substantially lower than dirt rims.

    Factory specs on seat heights seem about as accurate as weight and horsepower claims.:deal I'd say with the original seat and proper static sag, 38-39" as in the above photo is a fair number. Is that a "low" Renazco?

    Can flatfoot mine, but would feel better if mine was a little lower,
    which seats are working for you well? -short of going to the lowering link (thank you so much for posting!)

    Well I'm chuffed and surprised. It feels lighter than the drz by far and i am tip toe on that so being lower and feeling far more flickable is all gooood.

    Now I just need to put the miles on it to get out of this break in period of 3000 rev limit!

    No, it's a custom built for me, adds 1.5" of foam in the dish for comfort and better leg positioning.

    That sounds perfect...do you mind sharing how much that costs?

    If I recall correctly, it was around $300 for the custom build. Don't hold me to that, though. It's been quite a while.

    I looked through my owners Manuel, and did not find any info on setting the sag for the shock spring. Any one have an idea ? I have a 09 610SM. 95MM ?

    Thanks.

    Does anyone have a link for the instructions regarding the removal and re-installation of the right side engine cover in order to prevent screwing up something (woodruff key I think it is)?

    Something about making sure it is lined up properly before torquing it down.

    Greetings. Just picked up a 2009 SM610. Seemed like a steal at $1k. It's definitely fun to ride, but obviously has it's issues...reading through all the pages of this thread has been enlightening. I had no idea I picked up a Swedish nameplate, manufactured by an Italian subsidiary of a German conglomerate, which was then exported to the USA (and various other countries). So far the engine stuff is pretty par for the course for Italian manufacture - quality control isn't their strong point. At least they aren't assembling engines the same way they did in the sixties. New Ferraris were getting engine rebuilds due to metal shavings from crank machining operations working their way out and into the main bearings, destroying the crankshafts. Although I did chuckle at the fellow finding the staple in one of his crank seals...apparently there's still some of the old guard actively employed there.

    I am going to be performing the cam chain R&R soon, along with the clutch basket washer/cup repair. I had read in a few threads that there was a "kit" of sorts for the cam chain repairs. Is such a "kit" still available, or should the pieces be purchased separately? So far Hall's is the preferred vendor.
