    My 2000 with road compliance came with a single muffler but two inlets into it and two pipes running the whole length.. What's quieter ? Two mufflers or one . Also would a new stock muffler which has only done 1300ks be quieter than my stock one ? Its so so loud and I even re packed it and still could only get it down to 104db? Wtf is wrong with it /me? Thanks ! I know its a old post.... The one I want to buy for $350 used is different to mine but still only uses one muffler . But the muffler only has one big inlet . The pipes meet back near the foot pegs . Would this be quieter? Its costing me heaps to quiten this beast and can't find a good quiet aftermarket one either ! And can't afford $1200 for a custom made one ..... :-(

    My 2000 TE610e has the OEM duals with the catalyst removed and it is pretty quite. Personally I love dual exhaust and I think it's one of the really cool things about the bike.

    I was actually talking about the radiator shoruds for the 03-04 models fitting on my 2000 since there wasnt an option on motoplastics website.

    DC makes old style '91-'93 white shrouds that will fit the twin pipe model TE610e up to '03. They are not exact reproductions and may need a bolt on inner air foil. https://www.dcvmx.com/xcart/product.php?productid=19838&cat=316&page=1

    Being in OC, I would give George at Uptite in Santa Anna a call (714) 540-2920 he might have some NOS stuff left. Dan & Ann at Motoxtica might have some stuff, but I think I cleaned then out of that type of shrouds a few years ago. http://www.motoxotica.com/

    I did the same swap and love it too. Fcr mx 41 is such a superior carburetor IMHO . It starts , rides and idles better than ever . Maybe lost a bit in the top end but I haven't fine tuned it yet.... Mine has the tps wires . I have nowhere to plug them in with mine being a 2000 model and all. It runs so sweet . Apparently the tps allows a third circuit in the carb to work which is in the mid range . May make it a bit smoother when cruising at a constant rate ? Not noticeable anyways ...

    Dunno if that is a typo because I thought the 630 came out recently but if you mean a 1998 610, I'm pretty sure it has an oil pump, you can tell from the brainded oil line which runs up the right side of the engine, there is a banjo fitting on each end and the bottom comes out of the engine just above the clutch cover. I can't remember exactly where the top banjo fitting sits but I think its near to the spark plug. I'm pretty sure its low enough down so that you dont have to remove it when you take the rocker cover off.

    Anyway, look for the external oil line. There are various figures I've seen for the oil amount, I always just use the sight glass in the clutch cover. I think it was as low as 700ml for race specs but I think I put in a litre last time. Memory is hazy though!

    Here's my 2003 610. Pretty much stock except for the tank, mirrors, and rack. Took it out this weekend and the bug has bit.

    It is custom/homemade by a buddy.
    Check out their work here http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=962967.

    They both have 350's, but I had to have the 610 instead.
    They are working on their 350 projects, and I'm slowly getting 610 projects to them.

    If interested in getting one let me know. I'm sure we can get some out here.

    I bought a standard luggage top plate from b&b off road and modified it with brackets running down under the plastics bolted to the exhaust mounts. Works perfect for me.

    Yeah, I'm interested. How bout something in the shape of this plastic one I made so tool bags can be mounted and the blinkers have some protection.

    Sure, I'll get some stuff drawn up this weekend and get some input from my guys.

    That looks pretty good too. I like the reinforcement on the exhaust mount.
    What seat do you have on your bike?? Looks nice and comfy

    On a side note, to anyone who has the bigger tank.....

    What did you do with the radiator fan??
    I had to take my fan off to fit the larger tank. I've tried looking for smaller waterproofed fans, but it is proving more difficult than I would have thought.

    Hey aerophoenix, the seat is just the original one I have had recovered and new foam. I've had it done twice now and I'm still not happy with it.
    I've got the husky17l tank the same as yours with the standard fan fitted and I don't have issues with anything not fitting. Show us a picture of your fan to see if it's the same.
    I'll take a picture of mine on Monday. my bikes at work while I'm doing some renos at home.
    Cheers Dan

    Here's a picture of the radiator fan with the 17L tank.
    Does it look the same?[​IMG]

    After much sleuthing, my friend Christopher managed to uncover a 4.5 gallon or so desert tank that was on a 1998 TE610 kicker. In mounting it up on my 2000 TE610E, there does not seem to be any room for the fan. TEDan -- just curious if your tank is a little different design, or what you did to get it mounted if it's the same tank.

    It looks like the same tank to me. If you have a look on the under side it has a small acerbis stamp. I think it's near the fuel tap.
    Your fan shroud on the back of the radiator looks the same too. So I don't know why your having a problem? Mine just fits straight on and have never given it another thought.
    You did well to find that tank, I hear that thoes are very hard to find over there.

    Yes, it's an Acerbis tank. But from the looks of it, your tank was designed to give clearance for the fan. There is a portion of the tank that protrudes into where the fan needs to go. The only way to even get the tank mounted is to take off the fan. Given how hard these tanks are to find here, I'm reluctant to break out the heat gun, but that may be the best option if I want to keep the fan.

    So going by the paperwork, looks like it was originally for a 97' te610....right now its mounted on a 2003. It fits perfectly except for the spacing for the fan. Looks like the opening on my tank is smaller than on yours. With the mount removed the fan butts up against the radiator and tank.
    See below for pics.
