    Anyone have a 6.5 or 6.6 shock spring they want to get rid of?

    Made the switch to the Barnett clutch cable today. Install was easy - did it in my driveway in about half an hour.

    Result: definitely a smoother pull, smoother engagement, and easier to find neutral from a dead stop. Not amazing, but a big improvement.

    Also: does anyone in here have the Giant Loop pannier pockets on their TE610? I've got some coming in the mail this week, and I'm having trouble envisioning where they'll mount to. Curious if anyone else has tried them. Cheers.

    You should specify how much longer than stock. Halls Cycle orders them 2" longer from Barnett. They should have stock.

    Ah, good point. Apologies.

    I didn't think to put the OEM cable side-by-side with the Barnett before install, but if I had to guess, I'd say it's two inches longer. The fella I bought my bike from was from northern Illinois, and got the bike new from Hall's. I'd assume he also got the cable there, too, so I'm thinking it's two inches longer.

    OK a pretty boring subject for many I know but I am wondering which tyres people are using for off road on their 610's:

    I run 90% road but when I do go offroad it is usually accompanied by sadly thick slippery mud...i need a great front tyre as washout is my least favourite thing in the world.

    Rear I am not overly fussed with as any knobbly looking thing will be fine (narrowed to TKC, MT21 or army special)...front's I hear good things about the army special in mud but awful on wet roads (which we get a lot of here in the UK), tkc seem a good all rounder but not great in mud, same with mt21's...

    I am open to suggestions for those who have run in similar conditions?

    I run an SM by the way so 17" rubber all the way baby :)

    Had the wrench and oil can lights come on this weekend. Easy to reset, no big deal, but found this thread on ThumperTalk while searching for the steps to reset them: https://thumpertalk.com/forums/topic/274432-te610-speedo-setup/

    Most of you are probably familiar with how to reset the lights already, but in case anyone isn't, ^^ there ya go :thumb

    Hi all. New 610 owner here. I have lots of reading to do. I love my bike and am currently working on a windscreen. I've made a few simple mods based on what I've read so far. I'm open to suggestions. IMG_0802.JPG IMG_0803.JPG IMG_0805.JPG

    Finnyfire, I like the start of your homemade windscreen. Have any finished pics, and/or details on how you made it?
