    Never happened to me and i have been with it in some gnarly stuff (my plastics are all messed up :( from it ).
    Regarding the front end if you install the compression adjusters from the Te610 it will be way better.

    Thx mate I'll check em out. I got the new stickers put on along with the B&B bashplate and Barkbusters. That will do for now, though a better set of tires would be nice

    I think I read in this forum that some new owners who faced the similar/same problem solved it by remaping the ecu to latest version.

    Had no issues with stalling when i went out the other day so I'll wait till the first service in 400ks and get them to install the latest map. The headers are very blue so i wouldn't be surprised if its running lean for euro 4 and thats where the problem lies.
    Ordered some tractionator hoops, a 14t sprocket and some fold down enduro mirrors today.

    I might take it to a suspension guy here in aus to get the ride better, might also get it lowered an inch but that will bring on problem with the kickstand length

    You mean the bike just shuts down? I had the same problem when I got the bike, turned out the latest ECU software was not installed. Solved it at the dealer's place.

    Yea it seems to cut out just off idle when im working it up or down a hill, although it has done it just riding along at a moderate pace. I spoke to the dealer who said it just needs revs and not to 'snatch' the throttle like a 2 stroke, which i dont really think is relevent. But yea i asked him to check it out and make sure the newest map is installed. Thx for the info
    Replaced the coolant yesterday and saw the overflow tank was nearly empty. After filling it there is now a leak at one of the mounting bolts.
    Other than that very happy

    Thanks... so if I understand correctly RS650 front forks are (compression) adjustable but there is no screw on it and you put this screw from 610 forks..??

    Crashed mine the other day... Im fine, the bike is fine too. Have to replace the handlebars, the clutch handlebar, the shifter, and the tail.
    Any idea where to get the parts, except from the dealer's place? My guess is Husqy TE630 parts will fit.

    Halls cycles are where I got some Husqvarna parts for my RS650. The Te630 gear shifter is very nice and longer than the swm one too. Brake and clutch levers I got ktm ones from a local dealer.

    Have any of you done any modifications to the exhaust? The OEM one? I am short on money and can't afford to buy arrows or whatever, I am thinking about cutting the originals and opening them up, so it will be LOOOOOUD :D

    So it's a RS with Dual Sport fairing? ANd where the luggage carrier comes from, Dual Sport again? Prices? That's exactly the bike I would like to have if I'll be able to sell my TT

    It is an RS650 with the additional windscreen from the "Super Dual" - original SWM accessory
    It is a great setting for rally and off road riding! ...the windscreen disturbs slightly if you ride supermoto style on the pavement.

    The rear rack is an original Husqvarna 630 accessory - it bolts straight in
