The big deal with the forks is getting some straight rate springs in there. That is the major difference.

The valving/shims are more subtle, but really get the compliance of the bike to come out and really tame that high speed compression response.

Make sure you mention me when you deal with Nick.

In your dreams.

No one down there even seems to understand: "please reply to my e-mails... Pretty please".......

I have finally managed to get them to send my Gen 2 re-flash to the UK. Its taken 4 months.

Made a deal on a 2012 Tenere today. Gonna pick it up in a week or two.
Currently riding an 06 FJR. Probably can only keep one.

We'll see..... In a month I will either have an s10 or fjr for sale.

Considering the riding available in your area, the FJR is gonna get a new garage.

Virgina Beach is great for fishing but God awful for motorcycles. At my camp in WV I keep a DR650.

In a perfect world I could own all three of these bikes. We will see

The S10 will have to be pretty close to the FJR on road with some pretty good gravel road 4x4 road abilities.


The FJR is a fabulous bike.

There are a bunch of us here who came from the FJR side. At first you'll miss the turbine power and then you'll realize that the big twin is a lot faster than in your first impression.

Put a set of bars and skid plate on it before hitting the WV roads and trails.

I'd also like to add that the motor in the S10 only gets better as the miles accumulate. Give her some time to really break in before you make your decision.

Also at a minimum do the clutch jumper mod. 50 cents and 10 seconds of your time will transform the bike. If you decide to keep the bike then maybe you could get the reflash.

+1. Couldn't agree more.

It's used with 27k on it. Should be plenty broken in

I'm hoping it is a winner. It would be way more practical for me in WV.

My biggest worry is when I read about vibes. I have problems with my right hand and bar vibration could be a killer.

I just picked up a new '13 Friday and put 120 miles on it Sunday. I have to say I'm loving the bike. It will be my commuter bike and a little Adv duty.

For some reason certain bikes are worse than others. When mine was new it vibrated horribly. All the research I came up with said that the engine will smooth out after putting some miles on it. I know mine has improved drastically. With 27k on it, you should be good there. Also a careful T/B sync seems to work wonders on most bikes. Lastly, I bought a $10 set of Grip Puppies which help soften the grips and isolate my hands from any remaining vibes.
