NO -IT WOULD HAVE TO BE MORE POWERFUL THAN JUST PLAIN OLD NITROUS---MAYBE BORROW A RAPTOR FROM THE AIR FORCE

Think I can get him on the straights but there just is not enough straight roads where we ride to keep him in sight unless he wants to be seen -but he does wait patiently on us slow pokes

I have a weekend off from taking my son hunting forest rats, but my Katoom is in serious need of a valve check. Maybe the valve check can wait. I might be in!

Just curious because I'm still using the original battery on my T8 & I've never put it on a charger. I guess the huge alternator is doing its job.

Wonder if he has checked his S10 wheel spokes. Heard from several people that have had trouble with spokes coming loose... Yamaha won't admit it is a problem but the message boards are full of people buying aftermarket wheels from Woody to fix the problem. I'd go after Yamaha as many as their are out there failing...

The wheels are soft if you ride in rocks. It's a 575lb bike before you add a (usually) overweight rider/hard bags/crash bars/espresso machine. Don't ride it in rocks like it's a KTM 450exc and the wheels are just fine. As for the spokes coming loose, that happens with spoked wheel bikes on occasion. It's good practice to check them periodically. If I find a loose one, I sure won't go crying to Yamaha or Got Gear about it.

The wheel issues may say more about how hard folks are riding the Tenere vs. how they are riding the other bikes...

The battery has never cranked the bike over with much authority. If I lived in Jackson I'd go to GG about it. I let it sit for a week over thanksgiving in a cold garage and came back to find it dead. As in instrument panel wouldn't even come on kind of dead (about 4.5 volts, I measured). Put it on a trickle charger and 8 hours later it would slowly crank over, so yeah, it's shot.

Gonna put a new battery in it tomorrow and start checking for any voltage leaks. May have just been a weak/old battery from day one... Bike has about 8k miles on it. When I sold my strom it had 45k miles on it on a 5 year old original battery, so who knows

I replaced mine under warranty after the batter tender failed without me knowing it and the GPS376C drained it( common to the GPS276/376). Now I unplug the Garmin when I'm not riding it. The S10 firing order and compression may have something to do with the slow crank.
