Corbin seat on Tenere? Is it much wider than stock? I went out yesterday and test rode a 1200gsa and a tenere. I found the Tenere's seat to be very narrow compared to the GSA.

Once they get caught they'll realize why you flashed your lights.

Customer service Altrider

Hi guys.. Have altrider bars on my S10 and have clearance problems. Altrider state that you can remove the side covers with them on.

Well.... I can get the right hand side one off if I drape a towel over it as it drags across the inside of the bars. Without the towel it scratches the shit out of the paint on the cover.

The left hand cover can simply not be removed without removing the lh bar. Makes lifting the tank to service the air cleaner a pain in the arse.

Have contacted altrider a couple of times (last time a few days ago) using their website contact device re this issue.

Absolutely no reply at all.


I think I will get a local engineering works to make me a new set based on altrider a design but with more clearance.

Will cost me a bomb.... but altrider obviously know they have a problem and are going to ground on this issue. Have a fellow S10 rider here in Oz with worse problems on his bars with virtually no clearance.

Anybody else care to comment on their altrider experience?

Funny, I was just watching Altrider's vid on their bars in which they noted that the side panels can be removed with the bars installed. They are active on this forum, maybe posting in one of their threads would get a response. http://www.advrider.com/forums/searc...rchid=22969225

When a bike flashes its light I almost always assume its some sort of modulator running to increase visibility (I hate those things), but if I don't catch it in time to tell whether it's the bike doing it or the rider, I slow down just in case.

Funny this came up, after I called out the cruiser folks for not participating as I had one warn me yesterday. He pointed straight up with his left index finger and twirled it around, I assumed to signify a police car's roof light. I slowed and sure enough there was a cop running a speed trap around the next bend. I'd never seen that warning before, but props to the cruiser rider that likely saved me a stop and ticket!

I never knew about the tap your helmet signal, flashing your headlight is more common in these parts.

I ran into the same thing on my Tenere with the AltRider bars. I replaced the left side socket head tank bolt with a regular bolt. Now I can remove the tank bolt with out removing the left side cover.

Yes, real carbon, and I think that it goes well with the rest of the Worldcrosser kit.

My bars are a little tight, but I can remove the left side cover with the bars on by rotating the cover forward as I remove it..

Rear brake noise

Hi everybody

Today I was arriving home from a 120km ride when I noticed a noise from the rear end when slow speeding in the garage.
Closer examination shoed that the sound seems to come from the rear brake-disc interface, like if the pads are touching the disc or the disc itself is warped.

Any sugestions on this issue?

I was planning on purchasing the AltRider crash bars and skid plate. I guess I will wait to see if they can resolve your problem. I don't want bars that will not allow for the panel removal.

Can you post up a noise video.?

A few things it could be.
