Hello everyone. As a lurker of these forums for a while... :clap:

Sorry for my lack of knowledge... i come with questions about a spontaneous purchase i recently made. I purchased a bike over the phone and for delivery. Argh.

1. The dealer and I discussed removing the restrictions before it was sent... this sounded great, they said most of the people who buy them have it removed also. Opens of the throttle by 20-30% yadda yadda. Then they would put it on ibeat. Turns out the next day when we spoke on the phone, they thought i was getting the sm 510 at that moment. They said the 2009 sm 610 ie doesn't really have any restictions, they had no real clue when i mentioned the 2.2k resistor... the race map... power up kit, he had no idea. This was disappointing. Can anyone explain this?

2. Handguards, anyone know any easily installed (no handlebar cutting or drilling out,) that's wide up and down to block wind/bugs/rocks etc. I like some of the Acerbis, but it looks like they require the cutting and drilling. A link to one that's slick, easy to install with some assurance that it is an easy fit would be nice!

3. How scared should i be about the kickstand? Kind of hoping that was fixed by the 2009 model :thumbup:

4. What kind of speeds do you guys have at the top of a gear, stock. 1st gear would redline at 30 mph+-? 2nd?

5. I'm 6 foot 5, 220 pounds, am i too big for this thing? :rofl:

6. Worried these 2 friends i ride with, both with street triples are going to be faster than me in the 40 to 80 mph range (loved the bandit for this, pretty much always faster and i did it with little care of what gear i was in, they need the correct gear for the right speed even). What am i expecting? Sadly stock, see question 2. :damn:

7. I haven't read the manual and plan on purchasing a couple gallons of gas in a can, for the first couple fill ups (over cautious heat cycles for engine break in, idk) 87 octane for her or?

8. I had them put on frame sliders, but they didnt have axle sliders. Can anyone recommend some? Pretty easy to put on?

9. If i didnt care much about 80 mph +, should i go ahead and get a new sprocket? I'd probably like some more rip. Which one for a stock chain and all? Link if possible please!

10. What should be my first set of tires, upgraded of course.. ?

11. Power wheelies for your average rider. Easy power up in 1st & 2nd, clutch for 3+?


12. For the engine break in, i guess im going the drive it hard (especially the first 20 miles,) but not too much RPMs and change oil at 20 miles, 100 miles, 250, 500 method. Sound good? Suggestions?

Well, i know that's a lot. Sorry :bowdown:

Links to specific parts wins you a :thumbup:

Thanks SMJ

Yes, there is a power up kit, it includes a plug for where the O2 sensor connects to the computer, and also a cap for where the O2 sensor was mounted on the exhaust.

You can make your own:

http://www.supermotojunkie.com/show...ower-Up-Kit-Lambda-Bypass-Fuel-Injected-610SM

With either the factory or home made kit, you will need to adjust your idle speed. Your gas MPG will drop by 20% or so.

And for the exhaust plug you can go to NAPA part No. 704-1037 . The plug is 18 mm x 1.5 mm.

You can tell me once you find out :D

3. How scared should i be about the kickstand? Kind of hoping that was fixed by the 2009 model :thumbup:

You can just cut off the pin with a dremel.

4. What kind of speeds do you guys have at the top of a gear, stock. 1st gear would redline at 30 mph+-? 2nd?

I have a stock 45 rear sprocket, and the stock front is 15, I just changed to a 16T front because I am on the freeway commuting. I am at 6000 RPM at 75 MPH with the 16T. I have no issues with power wheelies in first and 2nd (no change from the 15T).

5. I'm 6 foot 5, 220 pounds, am i too big for this thing? :rofl:

I am 6'1 and 180 pounds. I am not cramped.

6. Worried these 2 friends i ride with, both with street triples are going to be faster than me in the 40 to 80 mph range (loved the bandit for this, pretty much always faster and i did it with little care of what gear i was in, they need the correct gear for the right speed even). What am i expecting? Sadly stock, see question 2. :damn:

They will drop you on the straighaways but you can corner and brake harder.

7. I haven't read the manual and plan on purchasing a couple gallons of gas in a can, for the first couple fill ups (over cautious heat cycles for engine break in, idk) 87 octane for her or?

I use 87 and have no issues.

8. I had them put on frame sliders, but they didnt have axle sliders. Can anyone recommend some? Pretty easy to put on?

Most go with these sliders.

http://www.supermotoengineering.com/home.php

The front and rear axles are hollow so you can use a piece of threaded rod and skateboard wheels and make your own.

9. If i didnt care much about 80 mph +, should i go ahead and get a new sprocket? I'd probably like some more rip. Which one for a stock chain and all? Link if possible please!

If you want to lower the gearing you can go with a 14T front sprocket. Your chain should be 520 x 114 links. You should be able fit the 14T with no issues. Give the stock 15T a try and if you don't like it then experiment with the 15T. A new front sprocket will cost you $25-$35.

10. What should be my first set of tires, upgraded of course.. ?

A lot of guys go with Avon Distanzias. But there is no single unanimous choice.

11. Power wheelies for your average rider. Easy power up in 1st & 2nd, clutch for 3+?

Power wheelies no prob in 1st and 2nd. Probably not in 3rd unless you have the PU kit and a new exhaust and then get the map adjusted.

12. For the engine break in, i guess im going the drive it hard (especially the first 20 miles,) but not too much RPMs and change oil at 20 miles, 100 miles, 250, 500 method. Sound good? Suggestions?

Did you mean you are NOT going to drive in hard during break in? Keep it under 5500 RPM and avoid droning along for the first 1000 miles. I don' think you need to change the oil at 20 miles but the rest of your intervals seem good. Check the left side bag filter at the 500 (rider's left side). Go with natural motor oil for the first couple thousand miles and then you can switch to synthetic if you like.

Well, i know that's a lot. Sorry :bowdown:

Argh. Guess i'd have to take it to a shop to get it done... i dont want to mess it up.

Nice, i can't remember the last time i was on a road with more than a 55mph speed limit. :rolleyes2: Any idea what each gear redlines at? I hear 1st and 2nd maybe 3rd gear with mods, power wheelies, but what speeds are we talking with these gears?

Probably a controversial topic... My sources im using.

http://www.cafehusky.com/threads/break-in-for-new-motor.8359/

General idea is a decent amount engine accel and deccel for enough pressure to set the seals properly. Just stay out of high rpms. The logic is sound, but idk...

20 mile oil change because supposedly that's when most of the metal is going to be knocked off anyway, might as well get it out of there asap.




Thanks for the help! Bike is delivered on tuesday :arsenal

For the handguards, contact Motostrano, they can likely recommend a bolt on solution.

Cycra handguards!!!
I built my own set... I think I saved about $20 doing that way...
Also, I wanted mine mounted on the bars, not the tripples.
Bolts right on, only cutting needed is the grips

The mototune break in method is what I believe in for the most part. I believe in breaking it in how you want to ride it. A little hard to do it when on the street tho. Its how I broke in my 510.

I think I changed the oil at about 50 miles. Make sure you put in new filter every time too. Not sure if the 610 has screens... but clean those really well too. Definitely do not wait any longer than that. I think I changed it about every 100 miles after that until the oil started looking cleaner. Now I change about every 250-300ish miles with filter every other. The 610 is not as high-strung as the 510, but these damsels love to be spoiled.
