Spoke with the dealer, he said if there is no damage to indicate that it was broken by bumping it or dropping the bike they will replace it. So I'm happy.

Good to hear --

That is true, but I already have an idea of how I am going to support it with two struts.

But apart from that I have to say I absolutely loved this bike on the gravel and it handles great even with the standard Metzeler Sahara tyres.

My 610 gives me around 18km/l, if I take it really easy (not possible!) I might get 19-20. Only 210km on a 12l tank. Real value for money!
The tank on the Terra must be the best looking  on any bike! reel pretty.
?? I get between 20 - 24km/l on my carbed 610

Yep same on my efi model -- between 20 and 24kmpl ---

Best was 305 0n a 12 liter tank

I don't know how you okes ride, because my reserve comes on at 120 - 140 km's. I very seldom see 180 km's on a tank.

When my 610 had a normal tank I also battled to get much over 200ks range. Fuel light would come around 180 and you maybe had another 30-40 is after that

Ja they are very expensive, ugly, and adversely affect the bikes handling when full. But 400 ks plus range is still nice!

I would prefer tail tanks like they put on rally bikes they would look nicer and not affect the bikes handling as badly when full. Pity they aren't available for the bike though.

Agree - fugly as all hell. Will not inflict that on my svelt filly. I bought a Nomad bumtank and it works great -  easy on, easy off and can be tranfered to other bikes. On standard tank alone can get 200km gravel travel and the Nomad adds probably at least 80-100.  I do not need another mothership - had a 1200 ADV!

Now that's not nice, comparing my bike to a 1200!

She may have lost her looks and put on a bit of weight, but she still performs like a pro!

Normal riding, I always get more than 20km/l. I weigh less than 80kg maybe that helps as well ?

All 610 te should give at least 20kmpl if ridden on the torgue and gears --- the moment the hooligan factor climbs in you can expect less than that with a back wheel spinning constantly -- The worst I ever got on mine was 150 kmp tank set the tp settings and she was ok again ---
And I RIIIIDE that Hussy of mine  ::)

When I did 305 I was running the bike in and doubt if I even exceeded 3000 rpm --Never seen that fuel consumption ever again in my life

SW Motard offered some nice extras for the Terra but only ship to the country's importer, which is Bike Gear for SA.  When I contacted them they were just in the process of having a container packed and added some stuff for me (handguards, crashbars, side cases, sump guard etc).  It arrived 8 weeks later just as they promised, too.

I will post some pics in due course.

Ok... Sooo I noticed oil sweating from the side of my bikes engine from the gasket... Took it into Sandstorm who retorqued the bolts and cleaned it up. Rode it for a bit same issue, they said the gasket will be replaced.

Booked the bike in last week Monday, after hearing nothing phone them today only to hear that the mechanic doesn't see an oil leak... Now the owner/manager needs to ride it to check... I showed it to him when I brought the bike in!!!! :dousing:

Anyway I am still without my Terra, luckily I have other bikes to keep me busy.

I also bought from Echo... :dousing:
I was promised a bashplate with the sale of my bike, but am now told the salesman Richard, wasn't allowed to make such promises and that this is now my problem...

I have in the meantime contacted Hyde as I think their products are quite good.

When I have the bike back one day... If I don't sell it immediately... I will let you know about the crashbars, as it shouldn't be too difficult to manufacture.

Mine never ran hot, but the fan did come on as I was doing the mass ride at the toy run.

My only other gripe with the bike itself is the low rev stalling and stuttering.

I was told on the first service one would only pay for consumables... Oil etc... But after they made a mess up with my licensing, Richard told me he would do the first two services for free.

Also when I purchased my bike Richard was the one to do the sale, I did all my communication via him and he handed the bike over to me. Seems as though echo doesn't really know whats going on there.
