From the engineering aspect, it very well may work for two reasons. First, as somebody else mentioned, a designer would typically want a slightly richer mixture for starting, which is just what we are doing by turning out the one screw for the throttle body sync. Second, the ECU is typically as unencumbered as possible when starting a motor.

The cool part is that you don't need a dyno to see if it works. Time a few passes through the bottom 3 gears or between two fixed points with the jumper, and several more passes without the jumper. The difference in averages will either be there or it won't.

I'm sure somebody will start posting numbers soon.
Use a Mini fuse. Twist the connectors 90 degrees and plug it in.

What a ride! I've seen Rema come and go, suspension discussions, engine discussions, oil and tyres but the one thing that runs through the whole thing is just how good these bikes are .....................................so mine is on order

I have ordered a white one, like this.
Congrats! Same thing happened to me...bought mine this past weekend

We aren't lucky enough to have the white one here, though

And then had to go with the Worldcrosser kit as I'm a bit of a tart

So that will get it more like this




Do you have the list of parts that come in the world crosser kit? How much do they charge for it (in your currency). Haven't heard of it being available for order here in Oz.

You have a beautiful collection of bikes!

Have you tried take-offs from stops with T and S?

I'm pretty sure I feel a difference between the two but very little compaired to before the mod. "T" to me tones it down just a bit. I'm sure I can tell more between the two when I try it riding two-up.

Thanks.

The dealer showed me the English version of this German spec sheet re the Worldcrosser



And also showed me a sheet for the secondary accessory "kit" which may be just a Yamaha UK "thing" as I haven't seen any mention of it anywhere else. The kit contains, the Akra., panniers (in black) and fog lamps.





Just out of interest the Worldcrosser kit is around 1000 UK ($1578 US).

And whist talking of pricing I was interested to see any number of mentions of the Super Ten being cheaper than the BMW, well, not here it isn't! I visited my local dealer and was quoted 9800 for a GS Adventure with no options at all, the Super Ten is 10,400.

Note. These are not UK mainland prices, I live offshore and tax free, UK mainland prices would be plus 20%.

It seems the S10 is cheaper than a R1,200GS only in North America, excluding Mexico.

It may be due to tariffs imposed on Japanese imports back in the day when everything was made in Japan.

it was quite funny here in South Africa....

In Jan12 Yamaha SA put the price of the S10 up from around R138 000 to R160 000 - which is more than an equally equipped BMW

The dealers were furious and I doubt if many/any S10's were sold...

Suddenly in May12, they reduced the price to R140 000 again - greedy farkers!

In the mean time the Explorer has been launched here at R144 500 and the Crosstourer at R150 000

Mine is coming up on a year old in Aug and 12k miles on it, hopefully another 4k between then and now. Been a blast and I've really enjoyed it.

Planning a trip to the Trans Labrador Hwy next year.

I see you have your old (2003 ?) ST lurking in the background.

What do you think of the S10 when compared to the ST. I had 3 STs and a GSA before getting my S10 and IMHO it does all what the STs did and goes off road too.

I sold my 03 and got an 05 Wing.. rode that 50k miles and traded it in on the 08 ST1300... last year I changed the candy red plastic for white.

I agree the S10 will due pretty much anything the ST1300 will.. the only issues are the ST is quieter wind-noise wise and you can push it 300 miles and it's as smooth as glass.. I keep wondering if I'll get rid of it but it's just great.

The S10, handles the occasional farm road quite nicely and tours very well also.

When I get on one, it's negatives are the other bikes' positives and visa versa.. it's a terrible thing to have such great bikes in the garage, not sure I've ever been happier.. LOL

Congratulations Tim, IMHO this is the best looking ST!!

In Spain the ST is cheaper than the GS.

It's more like the Subaru WRX of motorcycles. Works great on road and offroad, has a somewhat cult following, reliable, not everyone gets the concept and quite a lot of them come in bright blue!!
