That's the sort of protection the bike needs but I wonder how hard it'll be to get the right side cover off to access the battery and tools etc...

Cheers,

You take a high pressure hydrocut machine, put a plot in it, and presto... :-)

Just like Yamaha didn't do his homework with the standard screen, if they had done, it would be nice in laminar wind, instead of waking turbulence...

I really don't understand why they don't put them bikes in windtunnels to check what happens with *different* people in the sadle, and why they don't do something about the durt hurling upward through the headstock area?

Don't let this happen to you!

(or alternatively, I bet you wish this was happening to you, especially if you're one of those who can't get hold of an S10)

Nah, nothing to sort out really... It's not bugging me and I cant feel anything given that there is allready a lot of vibes and bumps in the back while running on knobbies.

Question

Hi Guys!
Have any of you worked out the speedometer error on the S10? Mine seems to over-read about 9%, i.e. when the the speedo says 109km/h, my GPS says 100km/h. My GS800 also over-reads, but only about 4%.

I would imagine that the fuel consumption indicated is then also 9% too low?

Anybody know if this can be calibrated to be more accurate?

Tiers

I saw there was some posts about the tires on the S10. I have no experience with these type tubeless big bike tiers.
I really liked my TKC 80s on my xt660z and would like to go with them on the S10 as well. But I felt unclear about the size of the rare. It seems the 150 leaves no room for the knobbies ( i thought I saw 3 mm) so 140 is the next size that seems to fit. My question is by going with the 140 will there be a great loss of traction and performance? if the answer is a yes and as I ride mostly on tar but I do on a regular basis take to the dirt , are there other suggestions you guys can make for an option for tubeless tiers that will give a nice combo tar/dirt and give me peace of mind for a long time?

Thanks

Dan

Nope, just a big *win* in handling, ive been riding TKC since 1999 or so, and we tried almost every consievable tire to find a optimal allroad tire for my girls bike, but none gave me the uncanny pleasure of the TKC, which almost is roadtire with grip (on dry tarmac) like tourances, but what a dream on not too muddy terrain, and for a knobby quite nice endurance when used sensibly.



After a few hours play on a handling course racing track (Lelystad) i even filed through my beemerbra on the left side.

You also can take them to the Track, but then it's a very short lived experience, two deays max i think, but you can slice of the fearfingers under the footrest easily. since they are made in Korea, they are however as tricky as tourances on wet tarmac (the Hanover made one's were as good as bridgestones in the wet) so beware on wet tarmac.

The 19" and 17" TKC's are way nicer to ride as 21" and 18" which have quite a square profile, where the 19ër is perfectly round from side to side.

The 150 will fit too, and give a somewhat more complacent behaviour, the 140 gives a quite quicksilvery bike costing some stability, the 140 has a tendency to let the bike fall into the corner, so it needs a bit of experience and Wasps©trust :-)


In all the years and 40 stes or so i only twice had a puncture, and no loss of air although the 140 officially is a TT tire.

Nope, thats quite accurate, the display gave a AVE of 20 and second filling was 14,12 at 277 km's so 19,6 km/l
