might be a problem when racing a hare scramble

Why!

Would you race a Hare Scramble on an S10? Maybe you could do eastern Enduros on a Goldwing!

Super Tenere..The models choice.

That's an insult to blue bike owners. Clearly he should be on a black one.

Hmmm, maybe he swings both ways. Yikes.

And those side lights are a little....

My condolances to your wife, I didn't know you could break them.

As long as you are replacing one you might as well do them both
and really get your moneys worth.

Dunno how much in real money 64 Euros is but if it's more than $5, you can just build your own switch...

If I was picking on you I would have done the above fix. I have a KLR so I've got to
be able to take a few punches too.

For the two castle nuts below the top triple, the book process is to tighten lower nut to 38 ft-lb, back off completely, then tighten to 13 ft-lb. The upper nut is simply a lock nut so you just snug it finger tight against lower nut, then check for alignment of the slots so the lock washer will fit. If you need to tighten the upper against the lower to get the slots to align, you hold the lower so that it isn't overtorqued.

After installing the top triple, the big nut on the top is tightened to 94 ft-lb.

To use a torque wrench on the castle nuts, you either need a special socket or Yamaha's spanner. And if using the spanner, you need to pay attention to the geometry to get a proper torque reading.

The widely used shadetree method of tightening a loose steering head is simply to use a hammer/punch to snug the lower nut until any looseness or play is removed. On many bikes (not sure about the S10), you can do this without even removing the top triple. You can do a good job this way if you have a feel for these things. I'd bet most dealerships use this method.

If you're asking about the triple clamp fork pinch bolts, the lower bolts (2 on each side) are torqued to 14 ft-lb. The upper bolts (one on each side) are 19-ft lb. If you remove the fork tubes, to avoid mis-alignment, it is important to tighten these first before you do the final tightening of the top nut.

But I thought you couldn't do that sort of thing with a road bike.
