Man it doesn't take long for the sharks to smell blood in the water around here.


Wish this weather would warm up so we could get our lives back.

Many thanks.. I will have to find another way as my light has a larger alloy bracket with a foot that won't fit just there.

Thinking cap tine....

I did cut my 'foot" down some to fit in there. You can see how the bolt head looks
off center. I cut some of the top off of the bracket to have it work.

I dunno'... That shark looks like it's pretty close to being black, and with a mouth like that you gotta' wonder about what kind'a bars it hangs out in...

I think I'll stick to being an ol' hammerhead.

Experience with low octane petrol?

Sorry about change subject in this very interesting conversation about big mouth sharks… At least is more interesting that KLR conversations….

I’m planning a trip to Morocco. In there is quite usual to fill petrol with low octane. Does anybody has any experience how it works in the Super 10?

Thanks!

I've been stuck in a couple of situations where all I could get was regular, low-octane gas and had absolutely no problem with my Super Tenere. I couldn't tell any difference in performance, and had no pinging, etc. either.

Of course, each time I only had to run tank of it through, finding premium at the next fuel stop.

Honestly, despite the bike not having knock sensors, I think the ECU compensates well and you won't have a problem. After all, you've got to figure Nick Sanders couldn't find premium fuel all along his 52,000 mile jaunt, and when they took his engine apart it looked damn near new.

Just my two centavos... OMMV.

Basically the same as trip to country areas in Australia. You have a choice out there. Diesel or 91RON. Guess which one I tend to go for?

Just make sure you don't "lug" the bike in high temps. Works for me. I use 95RON nearly all the time, 91RON if I have to and I have used 100RON once, 98RON twice. Bike just seems to work best on 95 but the differences are minor.

The only thing that is an issue is BAD 91RON doesn't leave you much wiggle room. But if you know the bike then you know when the wiggle has run out of room.

Just put a high octane sticker on the bike. It will never know.



I too have run the bottom of the barrel stuff and would have never known the difference.
