Hope you have good luck with the guarantee...
For most of us that have had spoke issues, it is due to spokes coming loose. Usually sorted by vigilant maintenance, as it states in the users manual. Yours appears to have snapped at the end of the thread.

The wheel rims should be checked
for cracks, bends or warpage, and
the spokes for looseness or damage
before each ride.


However, I am with Markjenn on this. It must be a bad spoke as they will have been all torqued to the same spec on assembly.

I would say you have a good case for a warranty claim, especially after such short mileage.

Agreed ...100%

But crucially, it does not state the spokes need to be checked for torque (or over-tightness) so he may be OK.

Thanks markjenn for your speedy and comprehensive reply.

I got a chance to throw a leg over an S10 yesterday. Fit like a glove (well, handlebar risers might be in order) but dealer had no demo bike for me to test.

I'll call around this week to other area dealers.

Grab handle bolt specs needed

I'm in the midst of installing Givi racks. The Givi directions tell me to re-use the original grab handle bolts. Problem is that my bike doesn't have the original grab handle bolts since I have the OEM pannier mounts which use different bolts. Plan to go to the hardware store tomorrow, would appreciate it if someone could let me know the specs for the bolts.

They are part No. 32 in the fiche shown at this link.

Thanks.

Thanks.
I think they are 8mm x 30mm. Not sure of the pitch, though 1.25 seems pretty common. I say "I think" because they are the only 4 matching bolts I have in the box of take-offs.

Anybody else?

Thanks that helps a lot. The pitch should be the same as the bolts I removed from the grab handles when I removed the OEM pannier mounts.

Probably doesn't matter but are they threaded the entire length or just partially?

The ones I have are threaded the entire length. Each bolt also had a flat washer on it.

Thanks, and that's with a hex head? Much appreciated.

These have an allen head. After further inspection and looking at parts fiches, I think the bolts I have are from the stock plastic engine guards, not the grab bars. I'll look around a little more later after the wife wakes up and I'm off of baby duty.

She's (the baby) starting to get mobile, so I can only leave her for about 30 seconds at a time. On the other hand, maybe it's time to introduce her to the garage...

If you are going to demo one - bring your checkbook.

OK, I found the right bolts in a different box. I knew the other ones looked too small...

These are 10mm x 50mm with about 28mm threaded and an allen head that uses an 8mm key. I'm sure these are the right ones. They were in a box with spacers from the Jesse racks.

Good luck finding them. I always have to go to Fastenal and order stainless metric bolts.

Hey thanks a lot. Was hoping to find the spec online but so far no such luck.

This is the best fiche pic-wise. http://www.ronniesmailorder.com/fich...12&fveh=141266

Sounds like the right ones, thanks a lot for that info!

No shortage of metric bolts here in Japan so hopefully can find some tomorrow.
