PS I also leave mine mine on a CTEK battery tender when not in use to keep the battery fresh, big Jugs do like a good battery from my experience.

Got it out of the shed cranked over fine, battery was fine, just didnt want to fire up. After cranking for a while leaving it, cranking with full throttle to bypass choke and clear out any fuel and leaving it, cranking again no throttle, 1/4 throttle , 1/2 throttle. Left it to get the tools to find out WTF..... Gave it another go with 1/2 throttle and it fired eventually... Hasn't missed a beat since..... GMF

Fork Seal Leaking?

The front fork seal I had to pay for, they said its not covered by the warranty which cost me R 530-00."
I had a front fork seal weep very slightly at 1500 kms and Yamaha got replacement seals "overnight" and installed two new seals the next day. Guess it depends on how long the seals have been in service and what kind of use the bike has had?

BTW, in a pinch I believe the R1's fork seals fit but check for matching part numbers.

Also, if some day there is a fuel pump failure the FJR 1300 fuel pump serves but, again, check for matching part numbers.

Thanks for the heads up about the preventative cleaning at the rear hub. Much appreciated.

I asked how cold because I don't the weather where you are. Our temps here are on average a couple of degrees warmer than Canberra. Mine is also in a shed. I usually start it outside the shed. Has started no trouble on mornings close to zero. Sometimes left for a week without starting but starts after a couple of turns of the starter. Hope it was just a one off for you. I have 19 000 kms on the clock.

Thaqua,

been looking at the HDB handguards - any fitment issues on the S10? Which model did you get?

HDB handguards for S10

Hi Trevor ... the HDB handguards are the strongest in the market ... better and sturdier to the other known brands (Acerbis . Barkbusters) but they are meant to be used in Enduro bikes so fitting them to our S10 required buying a fitting from Acerbis to grab the end of the handguard to the handlebar plus a piece of aluminum bar as extension on the left handguard. These handguards came with the wind deflectors in white and black. They are supposed to be attached to the center handlebar fitting also sold by HDB but are 4 inches short.
Cheers,
Roberto

Good to see that you finally received it all Rob.

I have been thinking about the doubletake mirrors,, what are your thoughts compared to standard?
Do they vibrate?
Will they fold right inboard when offroad?
Offer good vision when lower to your fists?
Are they the low mounts or high mounts?

Greg.

Working on a few things at once Combo.

I will be getting the Isoboard for pattern making in the next week or so, but have been waiting until I next striped the bike for a clean.
We were out on Saturday for a great ride through the forest and got nice and dirty, so I thought now is as go a time as any...

The professional side of life has put the brakes on the fun factor a bit as I have been on some fairly tight deadlines lately (hence the limited posts), but I have just completed one lengthy design job and am about two weeks from the end of design faze and start of proto faze with another. This normally allows a goodly bit of spare time as it's really only supervisory and consulting after design.

This is the area of the bike I am working on at the moment and will end up doing patterns for both ends at the same time... Not setting myself any time frame at the moment but it is happening.

Do it once and do it properly I recon.

You wont have seen this view of an S10 very often because it's actually a bit of messing around to strip to this point

Greg.

P.S - All cleaned up like a brand new bike again..

God I love this machine.

Not sure that I posted it here Shaggie, but I may be wrong..

I did manage to find it over at yamahasupertenere.com and you will find it on this page: http://www.yamahasupertenere.com/ind...15867#msg15867
I didnt go into much detail about the install, but I simply designed the bracket and got it laser cut with a batch of screen adjusters then wired all the lights through a relay (high beam signal triggering the relay) with no switch rather immediately on with high beam.

Bloody great set of lights..! 2 x road width pattern and super white and bright for about 100/150 meters.

Greg.
