Noise

Maybe a small stone caught in the calliper.

Does anyone know if these disc pads have scrapers to warn you when they are getting low ?

Yes it does look really nice, i think this is the best option :-)
Does look great but it just takes one errant stone to ding the Akra's titanium skin. Think I will leave the plastic OEM cover on for that reason.

That would be my choice. Either that or get the OEM shield covered in a Hydro Print carbon fiber skin. Ride on Adv offers that service.

I'm going to do it the other way around - show off the Arka while I can and if it gets too damaged and ugly I'll go back to this.

Same here - very tight but never a question of not being able to get the cover off.

The sale of my TDM's undinged 5-year old Akras paid for my S10's can, hoping to repeat that in due time. Probably just jinxed myself tho...

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?
I can remove both panels and fuel tank without removing the bars. Zero issues with Altrider.

I don't remember if it was here or the other forum, but there was a lengthy discussion on this topic. Some thought the clearances were different, R vs L, etc. IIRC the right side was farther out to allow removal of the panel (required more often) and the left side allowed movement of the side panel (but not removal), just enough to get at the tank bolts for servicing.

Might try a quick search to confirm? Still you would think they would get back to you...

I can get the right side off and the left side seemed tight so I just move it
enough to get to the tank bolt. Nothing I ever need on the left side so
it's not been an issue. Bikes has been flopped on both sides
maybe a couple times I don't think I bent it in.

Eek Great picture

I'd love to do that but S10 is heavy to get out of holes. Looks clean, must have been early in the day.

Hello All ! Absolute Newbie here , Ive been perusing all your fourms the last weeks as i purchased a 2012 S10 in December of 2012 . Im a convert Sportbike guy all my life, this is first semi-dirt bike ive ever owned . Im kitting myself out fairly nicley with the help of the fourms and all info i can conjure up online . " 1 " thing im lookin for and havent really spotted ... A cover , i have a few covers but all far too small for the "Beast" . Im thinking of making my own up Custom like to allow for panniers and all .

Anybody have any ideas or direction/ link to help me on my quest ??

Welcome!

And yea, the typical MC cover isn't gonna get it after adding tall shields and widening the hips with luggage.

I suspect there are large MC covers available, but I have a couple of boats and their covers are made pretty well. Expected to be in the sun. So a small boat cover would be huge!

You could build a nice frame with lumber or PVC pipe that you could just drive right into and pull the cover over. Like a mini garage.

They pack down small enough to carry. On the road it would drape over the who bike with ease. But would drag the ground too.

Hmmmm. You got me thinking. :)

Yeah a boat cover ... ?? thats a direction . I can make a complete sweet custom job for about 150$ Can$$ with light wieght non abrasive water resistant material which isnt bad considering i will design it to be Perfecto BUT if i can can grab one off the shelf for 100$ ..

I have a nice dry place to store my bike although not indoors . The cover will act more as a shield/ blanket , aswell a barrier from wandering eyes . I may have a look at boat covers tomorrow see whats possible
