    Hey all,

    This project has been sitting for over 5 years now and I am getting motivated to see what I am dealing with. It's a 99 TC610 that was converted to supermoto. I picked up from Austin from a fellow who bought it off eBay and who had planned to fix it but never got motivated. It had a blown bottom end because of the 4speed TC motor. I had the bottom end rebuilt a few years ago but its been sitting collecting dust due to move, grad school, babies, etc.

    I am not much of a mechanic but like to tinker. This is as good as any project so I'll post some progress if I actually make any.

    As one of the guys here who also has a SuperMoto (nothing fancy, just a DRZ SM) I say cool bike.
    Good luck with it.

    Alright, good news tonight. We have spark! This was my biggest concern as the magentoss tend to be problematic. It has the Ducati Energia mag.

    Still need to check compression. I just need a 10mm adapter which I'll pick up tomorrow. New rings, so I am pretty optimistic.

    Bad news is carb is going to need to be rebuilt which is new territory for me. Anyone know of a good place that rebuilds Dell 'Orto carbs?

    Well I managed to check compression and it only got tto about 70psi.The motor has new rings and such so I am hoping that they just haven't had time to seat. Seems pretty low still. I made sure that I had the throttle wide open (no gas connected though). Having spark makes me feel more optimistic though.

    I am pulling the carb off tonight and going to take a look. It's going to require a rebuild for certain so I took some advice from Pete off guzzitech and obtained the Dell Orto tuning manual and I found a link on ADVrider with pictures.

    Pulled the carb off and it is a PHM40MS. The bike has never ran since I bought it as a project and sat it in the corner of the garage. t was raced in Oregon and the 4speed TC toasted the bottom end. I bought it from a fellow in Austin who bought it off ebay and didn't do much with it. I had the bottom end rebuilt a few years back and recently got it back into the frame.

    I thought of having it rebuilt but since it isn't a priority and I really want to learn how to do it, I thought I would spend the time learning. I downloaded the Dell Orto Tuning Manual and reading it now before digging too much deeper. I just need to order rebuild kit and keep reading and documenting so I don't muck it up when I get started.
