Anyone know if you can remove the 2 attachments that the wind screen is bolted onto?
Since I prefer to ride with removed screen I would like to remove those 2 but without cut them off.
Grateful to find out if it is possible.

No, that is part of the main headlight stay. It's an intregal part of the front structure and most everything is bolted to it.
23P-28356-00-00 $80 or so if you want a spare to cut down, and are willing to wait a while to get it.

Mark, I can see the where perhaps some levity could help this thread occasionally, but 'glass house?' One bike has an occasional rich start condition, which is easily overcome by opening the throttle. The other won't start because either the engine went KATOOM, or the bike has an electrical problem.

And YAMAHA didn't put the cart before the horse. What kind of operation requires local programming of the ECU before the bike will start, but ships the bikes to dealers before they ship the specialized programming modules? AND they allow dealers to sell and deliver to customers with the bike in that condition?!

Our 'glass house' is starting to look like 'transparent aluminum' now, is it not? :cool:

The media and Mark. You gotta love the hyperbole. :

WTF are you on about ?

If you mean the start problem, I had that once. Had the common sense to realize it was flooded due to me messing with the ignition and just whacked the throttle open to clear it. No problem.

You really ought to think before typing. Your negative attitude is getting tiring as it has little foundation. You may have had a starting problem but you now know how to deal with it. If you really don't like the bike, sell it to someone who will and and go buy another bike.

Either way, FFS get over it.

New handlebar

I have a new handlebar: Protaper Raptor.
When I saw it on the bike it looked too high but I tried today and it’s perfect to my size.

Feeling a bit queasy? :)

Talking about reliability and such.........

We S10 riders are in agony when we "self-inflict" our riderless moments.
That's the ONLY time our bikes are down.

Cheers Anticyclone. It will seem like forever, but it will be back and worth it!

On that note, how about we talk about accessories...

I think I've found the perfect farkle for those folks like Old Git Ray and DaFoole who seem to carry everything but the kitchen sink on their Super Tenere travels...

I especially like the part where it says "Not for use when vehicle is in motion. Can get slippery when wet"...



I'll bet Pluric gets a couple of these for his UTV!!!
