This bike has a real harshness in the 3 - 3.5k rpm range like what you guys have mentioned. Feels like fuelling to me. The bike feels like it has a fair bit of restriction, i'd say add a new exhuast can and fiddle with the fuel map and it'll be real sweet.
I expect i'll drop a deposit on the bike on Monday.

One thing, you guys are talking about meddling with the O2 sensor readings i think? Does that have the same affect as having a Power Commander fitted?
Thanks

Hey Bill, looks like you're making exactly the same transition as I am with selling the GS Adv and going with the S10. I'm hoping to pick mine up this week.

It'll be a sad day leaving the GSA as I have a lot of good memories with it.... I hope the S10 lives up to expectations.

Cheers,
Dave.

I was amazed at the leg room and comfort. The centre of gravity was a real surprise as was the ease at which you can get it up on the centre stand.

Hi Bill good choice,

The power commander has adjustments right across the range but doing the Co basicially is like opening or closing the tap as it affects a wider range. then again i read on the 660 thread the fuel mod on them only affects the low range.

Cheers Rick

Yeah Dave i am. I think its a combo of the light weight of the s10 and its stability. The 1150's are a good thing and i'm gonna miss that fuel range (at least until i work out a way of fitting an aux tank to this beast), but that top heavy feeling of the 1150 i won't miss. I think the S10 will live up to the promise, there are a few area's that need some attention (plastic guards etc) but after having a BMW you should be used to adding a few things

The DOMESTIC AUTHORITY has given me her blessing so its off down to Parisi Motorcycles on Monday morning to drop a deposit on the bike!

well done mate... looks like these are going to sell well...

don't hold your breath for the accessories though

although YMA did have the tank bag and tank protectors in stock..
the tank bag is well worth the $$ IMO.. it's a very nice bag that fits perfectly and looks the part too.. not to mention it's massive storage capacity

Hey mate, how is the tank bag when you're standing on the pegs? I know from using a tank bag on the GSA that it really gets in the way and I cannot get forward enough, end up stooping over the front.

If it isn't a problem I may get one when mine arrives. I'm giving the panniers a miss though and will stick with soft luggage.

Cheers,
Dave.

ABS turn off

I was talking to a journo with a Yamaha loan bike, who reckons there is a way to turn off the ABS? Anyone know the procedure??

did the deed

Hello Mr. Wasp,
Thanks for the great thread and info.
Well unfortunately I got the full price for my 660z from the dealer and so made the order for the 1200. Must be the most e logical thing I have ever done .

Here the first edition comes with topbox, side cases, hand guards, front light protector and sump guard.
I have asked them to put a big plastic topbox as the bike will be my daily form of transport and a 30 liter box is not practical and when I go off road I never go with a hard box in any case.

What I am contemplating is what to do with the engine guards.
As I wrote before we do ride here some trails that get complicated (for me) and I do make frequent soil samples using nostrils and taste buds.
Do you think you may come up with a solution that will be able to protect the radiator and fan? and allow persons of my sort to continue their geological surveys free of the fear of frequent credit card usage?
And if so will it be based on the Yammy engine guards or will you fabricate a system completely from scratch?
I would appreciate your input on this subject.

No, teh CO is more like the old airscrew on a carb, while the PC is a whole box full of idlejets mainjets and needles to really tweak every conceivable mapping.

Cheapest and best way on a budget tweaking is a NTC (negative Temperature coefficient resistor)in serie with the airbox NTC, you make the bike think its a few degrees colder , so it will enrich the fuelling accordingly, but your tempreader in the dash will give a lower reading also...

Went into the local yamaha dealer (Bunbury WA) today and ordered the tank bag as he said there was plenty in the Sydney depot. Should be here early next week. Still waiting for the bash plate and headlight protector...... Tank pad arrived early this week.

Congrats on your new purchase.

I am waiting (still sizing up as I wait) for the SW Motech stuff to arrive before putting too much effort in.
My bars will be a full set.. Not using any of the yamaha barwork.

I will be doing a full incremental adjustment mechanism for this bike at a later date but just though I would try these in the short term.

Greg.





P.S - I had the bike serviced on Friday and DID get them to put the paper filter element back in temperarily so that I could have a listen to the mid range knock... I am riding the bike again tomorrow and will re-install the foam filters and ride again before offering a report.

Greg.
Will listen with interest, I have been out for a couple of hours this morning and tried a couple of different Co settings with the stock foam filters so when i get back from my daughters school fete i will post my feelings on the Co method.

Cheers Rick
