Thumb 14 Days and 4000k of fun

Couldn't sleep as I'm all pumped about my trip, 3 days on tar to Bundy and then a week to get back via as much dirt as I can.

Here is my Ten all packed and ready to go.



Cheers,
Dash

Hi Shelbyjet, I bought my temperature gauge of Ebay. Search digital temperature gauge and they pop up every now and then. They were cheap enough so that you can buy a few should you need to replace it in the future.
Cheers, Jan

Did the cush drive mod with an inner tube yesterday. Tight as a drum now - will check it out in a thousand kms and see what's happening in there.

Anyone looking to buy a second-hand Touratech bash plate?

I think I'll go with the B&B model and link it up to the SW-Motech crash bars, which, unfortunately will not fit with the Touratech.

From memory fella's i think i remember something in the manual about checking the oil level on the "side stand" (check it out i could be wrong)
As this might give you a different oil level reading to the centre stand vertical position.

cheers.

Cush drive modification - another option

Folks,

I tried a different take on modifying worn Tenere cush drive rubbers and basically cut pieces of inner tube and pushed the worn cush drives into the inner-tube sleeves. I did over 6000 km with this modification and whilst they were worn when I finally replaced them with new ones, there still was no noticeable movement, so this is another way of doing it that works as well.



Cheers, Jan

Question Fuse Box

Hey Guys, I'm trying to work out what fuse box to get and where to put it under the seat??

I have installed a GPS and USB charger but I want to install Driving lights, heated hand grips and a couple of 12v Cig adapter plugs.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers,
Dash

Hey Dash,

I recommend you just put an inline fuse in. I wired up straight to Battery and run my 12v and accessories off it. I have a 12v outlet (if I use two ports for USB charging then I may run 3.5amps), GPS only draws around 1/2amp, Heated Grips (<3amps) and LED driving lights (2 amps total). That is 9 amps so I have a 10 amp fuse, but always carry a 15 with me just in case...

All accessories can be run while bike is off (except driving lights - they are relayed to the ignition system) so just be careful you don't run down too much overnight (charging phones/scala/camera etc...) - I think this would really only be a problem in very cold conditions with a deteriorated battery.

Can buy them from most auto or marine shops (I bought from Whitworths) and even has an LED indicator to identify fuse condition - all for around $8.

Cheers.

PS - I can't yet upload photos, but Msg me your phone number again and I will sms you a piccie of mine if you like.

Google Eastern Beaver, He is based in japan and has a couple of fuse box options.
The three circuit solution looks like a tidy little unit.
This guy rides and a lot of his stuff is motorcycle specific.
I have just ordered a couple of things from him for my DR, including the headlight relay kit with driving light lead.

At one stage I made a fuse box for the ten. It was smaller than any commercially available one and found that it still saved more space to have inline fuses rather than a fuse box.

Pissed Help!

Is there special trick to removing the rear brake pad retaining pin?

What should have been a very simple job of replacing the rear pads will now cost me a new calliper I think. I've somehow managed to break the calliper piston during my fit of rage and put my finger straight through it

Is there any chance of saving it?

Cheers,
