That's something I noticed to. There is a bit of steer available. I think I might go out and practice and see if I can get a bit more info, It's the least I can do

I like that shot because I'm down a few pounds.

Everytime I walk by the bike I swear I hear a little groan.

Me and Old Git Ray may just have to come by and straighten you out.

I was going to ask which one was me ....silly boy.

As for the ABS thing... sigh !

Iv'e said this before but, I had an 09 GSA that ran on, on a wet grass slope on my farm. I bought The S10 a short while later and it just stopped on the same piece of wet grass.

It's as simple as that. As was said above, the BMW has given bike ABS a bad name.
If you want a disconnect switch for fancy riding then fit one. The rest of the time the Yam will look after your ass in a brilliant fashion.

How do you say "Bitch Slap" or "Whoop Ass" in Spanish?

We'll have to get Jaumev when he's not near a bike other wise we'll never catch him.

He may be better looking, slimmer, have more expensive sunglasses but he ain't got the fa*ny magnet gene that Pluric has. Besides, the dork still has his little leg gouging stick on his side stand.

Steering bolts and nuts torque

I am going to adjust my steering to get rid of that annoying noise. Do you know whats the torque for the two nuts beneath the top triple clamp, the nut over the triple clamp the one with the rubber plug, and the bolts that tighten the suspension bars in both triple clamps????

Thanks.

Nicolas

These guys have a switch that turns the ABS off.

Lower nut. Tighten to 38 ft/lbs. Then loosten and retighten to 13 ft/lbs.

Top nut. Finger tight only (against the rubber ring) until the slots line up to allow the top security ring to be put on.
