yes, I was the guinea pig for the soft bag pannier frames..

I prefer soft bags as you can really stuff them full of gear, are easily repairable and are more "crashable"..

Andy has sold a few sets of pannier frames now I believe..

here is a pic of my S10 with soft bags..

Softside luggage

Thanks for the input on the soft bags. I put in a query to Wolfman, we'll see what they say.
I still miss Swan Draught....But we have Sam Adams, so I'll survive. Wife and I met and were married in WA, we'll have to come back some day...We were even tossed off the Governor's mansion property in Perth, we wandered in and didn't realize where we were. You know us lost Yanks...
And, I know what a Holden is. Along with getting rooted. Still have a copy of the Naked Vicar Show around here somewhere....
Thanks again. When I get my S10, I'll show you what we've come up with.

Forgot

So busy reminiscing that I forgot. Any special precautions for the bag on the left side over the exhaust?

nope, the pannier racks hold them off enough... I just did a 2000km trip with that setup and it was perfect..

Thanks

I have apparently been having a thought (gasp, shock, amaze!) in the back of my mind: when yamaha Australia put those socks over the intake horns in the airbox, is the intake side of the crankcase air system still being filtered? On all of other Yamahas of recent manufacture, that air is supplied in the downstream side of the airbox from the pleated filter. See this shot:

It looks like that tube coming up between the throttle bodies. More obvious things have been overlooked. Just attempting to think.

Yes, please do start a therad on this. I have a spare Audiovox CCS-100 and would like to put it or even a Rostra on the S10 if possible.

Yamaha Aus have that covered... In the pic below you can see that there is a yellow foam plug in the airbox water drain (clear bulb at the bottom). The same stepped foam plug is pushed inside the middle spigot (crankcase breather).

Wasp.. have you removed the foam filters yet.. and if so, how do you feel about the springs that are inside the filters..

my feelings are that they would seriously be restricting or at least impeding the airflow..

The S10 is only "throttle by wire" down at the throttle bodies and does in fact have push-pull cables from the throttle grip to a cam wheel (go figure) so it may still be viable.

Very keen to find out more...





Greg.
Greg, here is a link to instructions on how many of us adapted the Audiovox unit to our ST1300's (Pan Europeons). I made a few changes to with my setup, such as not using a vacuum cannister and incorporating the controls into the OEM handlebar switch pod, but you can get the general idea of what is involved in that link.

When engaged, the unit monitors the speed of the bike and matches it to the speed you have selected. It maintains the set speed whether just cruising or going up and down hills. Not much use in twisty bits, useless off road, but very handy when you can't avoid riding some of our long interstates here.

Looks like another kind inmate is doing some research on fitting the later model Rostra units to the S10 and will hopefully post what he learns in another thread. That would e wonderful, as I sure hope that I can fit a real cruise control to the S10. That is one thing that I thought I would lose when going from my ST1300 to the S10.

Thanks again to you and everyone for sharing your wisdom concerning the S10. This is one incredible group

I guess I missed something here. What pannier racks are you using with soft bags? Any pics? I already have waterproof Ortleib bags that I use on my 08 KLR650 and would like to use them on the S10 when it gets here. I had some racks that kept the bags off of the body work and exhaust on the KLR and am interested in the same for the S10.

Thanks,

Fred Z.
