Sweet. :thumbsup: Welcome to the fold. Post up some pic and info when you can. Thanks.

Your going to love it. My 07 is by far the most fun I've ever had!!!:thumbsup:

Sweet! Can't wait to see some pics.:thumbsup:

Congratulations and welcome to the fold. You are going to love that bike. Gee if we get just a few more 610 owners around here we might be able to call our little group mainstream instead of a cult.:thumbsup:

Fantastic!! Enjoy!!!!

Give a few updates once you get a few miles on it and post a couple pics...:thumbsup:

Great, finally. Please, please type up some ride reports, impressions of how it looks, what you might do with it (e.g. new pipe etc) and LOTS of photos. Make this thread the biggest 610 thread on TT.

If there is ANY possibility you might be able to confirm if a 08 TE610 12.5 litre EFI tank fits the 08 TE510 (with it's 7.2L tank) you will make us 510 owners very grateful... :thumbsup:

Do you have any TE510 buddies ?

have fun with the bike, i kinda missed this is mostly a dirtbike forum,(smr450) bigger gas tanks, I get it. was there somthing wrong with your kick stand or is it awkard with equipment /spares strapped to your bike?

I think he is talking about the auto retract feature. It's a love/hate thing. TW

Awesome! Post up some pics!

What's going on, is the 610 now stuck in the shed and you aren't riding it? How about a ride report/review and some pictures.....please!

How's the 610 break-in and your recovery coming along?

malhusky,

Congrats on your purchase, and I hope you heal up soon. I can’t wait to read some ride reports and enjoy some pictures of your adventures. I am days away from acquiring the 08 TE610 myself. I would really like to know what your first impressions are of the bike. I am mostly curious about the FI and the feedback from the front suspension.

      So I just sold my bike 2017 TC250 with only 17 hours on it. When it left it was in brand new condition. But 2 days later the engine cases were being split.
      Turns out the Idler gear had snapped off during the new owner’s first ride. Of course I am not paying for the fix as one it is clearly a manufacturing defect. I told him If needed I would help by me claiming it as warranty issue.
      Anyways I did some research and discovered that the KTM/Husky expected a 6x12 to hold the idler gear sys together on 2017.
      Well this seems to be an issue and KTM did fix it for the 2018 models. They actually updated the whole Idler gear sys, but if you still have a 2017 2 stroke the fix before it happens which it could on the first kick would be to replace the bolt with a 6x20.
      You will have to tap the hole for more treads. Actually the 2018 engine case was also updated for this and that’s all they did.
      I own a 2018 TX300 now. One reason why I looked into it. 
      Just thought I would share.

      Greetings to everyone. After a lot of searching I finally decided to join this forum in order to finally find a solution to my problem. Here's my story. Bought in a hurry an sm610 2005 (cylinder with the small tensioner) which wouldn't start cold. Only if I connected it to a car battery would it start but not always and not easy. Got a new 14amp battery and nothing. Spark plugs,starting spray etc nothing worked out. If the engine was cold it would start in an instant very very easily. Took it to a mechanic he told me that it had no compression so he grinded the valves. When I got there to take it back he told me that my pick up coil was in bad condition and needed to be replaced in order to start cold. Of course nothing changed after the valve job and after 5 hours of riding(not constant) my new head gasket blew and when I took it apart I found a crack in the water passage on my head right next to the blown up spot on my gasket. I don't know if it was already cracked or if it cracked after gasket blew all I know is that it was tightened properly as I was in front when this happened. I'm just trying to figure out why i can't get it to start cold. All answers are welcome. I had the head fixed and I'm ready to reassemble the engine. Could the pick up coil actually be responsible for this? Another thing I noticed. My tensioner had an apostate welded up to it so i needed a new cam chain as well as a new tensioner. I have these. Could the ruffled chain be in charge? The engine was perfect when hot starting and working like a charm. Please someone help as I'm ready to take the damned thing and throw it into the ocean.
      PS is the pick up coil from an lc4 engine compatible?

      As I was inspecting my new-to-me bike that I just purchased, I noticed there is a grove on the back side of my front brake rotor that goes completely around it, and you can feel it with your finger nail. I have noticed some poor performance, but I figured it was because of the new pads that the previous owner installed just before I bought it hadn't seated yet. However, I've ridden a couple times and it doesn't seem to get much better, if any better at all. Is that enough to explain why when I pull in the brake as hard as I can, it only slows me down a little, instead of going into a stoppie and over the bars (as I wish it would)?
      Should I look into buying a brand new rotor?
      I have no pictures of it, I'll try to post some when I can.
