Its an XTZ 750 only meeting, there's lots of guys from the UK coming as well.
What kind of mods were you doing to the XTZ? (its money well spend) (and i'm not saying this because i own one,but when modified properly there's not many bikes that have the all around quality's of the 3LD)
SHould come too, there's many 3LD enthousiast from all over Europe, with bikes in many different stages of modification. maybe we can get JCO over as well!
hey mate, picking up a 650 X-Challenge this weekend. The S10 is just too heavy for the trail riding i'm doing now... it's very hard to part with it but i live in a one bike household!!

i was tryign to lighten the s10 a bit - tidying up the rear end, switching forks and trying to get a smaller lighter tank for it...

Hej Orlando yeah i could imagine that
I did all that and got the bike down to 170 kg's and its really easy offroad now, but also great on the highway.
Did you get the x-challenge with the air shock?

Hello Tenere fans!

I'm Zoltan from Hungary, dedicated xtz750 lover. My beloved ride:

[IMG]https://picasaweb.google.com/1079584...56717863113090[/IMG]

WP shock in the rear, with remote oil reservoir, hyperpro springs in the front, air valves in the fork caps.
Open exhaust, washable foam filters in the airbox.


Further modifications on the way, but I have not enough time, so its going slowly. The fork gives its place to
a 48mm WP fork.

Hi hookeniggy!
Last year summer there was a hungarian tenere meeting, there was Gerke and his dutch friend. Maybe you know them.
They both came with old TT600-s, but somebody told me that the old hollander has some heavily modified superten at home. I forget his name, but he is a 50-something skinny ex-racer, always wearing bandana.

Plutonic, what are you doing in the land of the freedom? Born there, migrated, just working....? U have superten too?

My white beuty


Here is mine white beauty
Bought it in pretty bad shape, cracked fairing, rusting frame, rotted wires, and oil hungry with burned valves :)
I took it with idea of full rebuild. Price in those 3y ago seems to fair enough and I took it.
Finished first season and in winter start to rebuild.
Bought TDM 850 engine rebuild a top end, raised compression, ported head...
Stripped to every bolt and powder coated a frame and other details
Bought YZ450F 2008 front suspension, mounted to it
Bought New stainless steel exhaust
Repainted to original colour. Made crashbars and luggage frame

One thing that I miss is good rear shock! It should be adjustable and most important with remote adjustable pre load option. (Can anyone recommend some good alternatives?)

I know my bike to every bolt and never will give to any work shop to work on :) I am jealous, selfish dude ;)
Love this bike a lot. Actually this is my second bike after 15y :)

I am too thinking that this bike is really underrated. Tried HONDA AT 650 to compare and it felt really boring and it convinced me that I my chose right. It is really fun to ride and travel.

You can call Harry Essens (pro max suspension), in Schijndel NL, former wp and technoflex , they have build a twin piston piggyback unit for my bike, fully adjustable high and low speed and rebound, they did both the front end and rear end, and are similar to yz 450 with 320 milimeters of travel, and they set the bike up for rally type riding style.
I'm very happy with the way it works, and can adjust the suspension to the conditions i'm riding in with just a few clicks, promax or former technoflex is known for that.
Now with the right suspension my bike is a lot more stable than a single cylinder in offroad conditons is what i've found out.
Can't tell you about the price because they gave me a sponsor deal

As I understand, there are some problems with microfiches, is it?

Here`s the link: http://www.megazip.ru/ru/bike/yamaha/view/1270 It`s half-translated from English to Russian, but all the fiches are there, and it`s possible to understand.

There was a discussion about steel braided brake lines at some previous page of this thread. All I want to say - it works great, I cannot ride S10 in the city with stock brake lines. With steel ones it`s a completely diferent bike.

There was a question about a broken carburetor`s diaphragm. As a temporary solution it`s possible to glue a small piece of a condom onto the broken diaphragm and ride on. It realy works.

And some more pics of my S10 to this thread.

My wife with her Suzuki Freewind and my Super Tenere in Gumush-Hane, Turkey:



Redressing near Tunceli:



Parking near a local 2-stars hotel:



Welding the broken rack, Bitlis:



Somewhere around Tatvan city:



Super Tenere and Ararat mountain:



Somewhere on Turkish highway:



S10 and Georgian police car:



S10 near Krestovskiy pass in Georgia:
