Been running like a clock on this trip other than this. Any ideas?
Pissed you were in Ks? ..

Don't feel too bad though, offroad I'm a total wuss so not quite the riding god you may have thought.

Damn. I have to find a new idol.

I find the S mode to be too abrupt for subtle throttle adjustments and the T mode too tame.

Another First World problem for sure.

What are subtle throttle adjustments?

If I'm not on the brakes I'm WFO on the gas...

Uphill more S mode. Hard to keep a smooth roll on in S mode. Harder to switch
from T to S to exit a corner. Not much straight away between corners so the
FJRs didn't get to launch as much.

They also didn't have as much engine braking. If I led they wanted to see more brake light
to know how set up for corner speed. I tend to drop a gear or two and let it engine brake.
So they were impressed by the twins compression braking. I don't need a forum lecture on
how to ride public roads so I will leave it at we had a lot of fun and no one got hurt.

MPGs in the 30s. They get thirsty when revved.

Lack of brake lights provides a more sporty experience for those riding behind you.....

Riding through corners on the Tenere in that sweet spot with the engine revving and no brakes is just about as Zen as it gets

It's what we mere mortals do, when not braking, to accelerate in corners.

To settup for corners I like to use a little rear break to settle the suspension.. trail braking. Ya gotta show the brake light or some silly cager will turn you into road pizza, especially here in Florida. Oh wait, we have no corners in Florida, sillly me.

I agree that even with the reflash throttle management/fuelling is not perfect. Hopefully that will be remedied on the 2014 model.

That's not exactly what is meant by "trail braking". In fact, typically, when "trail braking" the FRONT brake is used to "setup for corners".

I used to think the same thing until I read up on what "trail braking" really was. I thought it sounded backwards, but avc8130 is correct.

Back in May I had a high idle whilst riding in the rain for about 1.5 hours. Coming to a stop it kept going. Pulled in the clutch and it stayed at 2500-ish revs. Puzzling. It eventually dropped to normal after the rain stopped. The rain may or may not have been a coincident.

Thanks. Got a little wet in Indiana that day. Whole lot of wet yesterday and today in Colorado. Camping in Mesa Verde now. We'll see in the am.

If it is related to riding in the rain, I wonder what component was the cause?
So many of us ride wet, it isn't something that normally gives trouble.
This might be a tough one to figure out if you can't duplicate it.

Rear wheel removal?

Hi Guys

I want to change out the rear tire on my S-10 before the weekend cause the one on there needs to be replaced.

I've taken out the axle and disconected the ABS sensor, but the rim seems to be hooking on something and I can't get it off the bike

I've never owned a shaft drive bike before, what am I missing?

Zen and art comes to mind.

When I remember the name of the rubber thingy carrier that tends to cause mischief I will get back to you with an intelligent answer.

Cush Drive !!

One side of this tends to get stuck on the spline and the other side moves with the wheel.

So you have to make sure these 3 bits stay together. If you do that then there WILL be a gap, if you don't you end up with cush drive rubbers all jammed up and causing mischief. It doesn't hurt anything except your temperament.

It's on the left as you are sitting on the ground swearing.

When I get home in 3 or four hours I may be able to post a pic of the trouble spot.

I usually loosen the four bolts on the pumpkin as well just to give a bit of play.

Thanks very much, this helps, I'm glad I wasn't trying to force something when it was still bolted on. I must admit there were some fierce fighting words flying around the garage for a time there
I'll apply a little more patience to the task
