Its an SLA. No news. Its the same kind of thing fitted to most bikes.

The difference with the S10 is that you can't swap it out for a flooded plate battery, because of the way it is positioned.

Read all about it.

Okay I read all that wiki. I know for a fact a battery tender does not charge at a high rate. somehting along the lines of 1/2 amp per hour so I think it will be fine on one of these.

Graham or anybody else, do you perhaps know if one can charge the battery in the bike (connected) as I think I recall reading somewhere that Yamaha don't advise it and say the battery should be disconnected before charging?

You can charge the battery on the bike by riding the bike. It really is that simple...

I'm first going to investigate a disclike under or just over the lower triple clamp, because this one looks like hampering cooling of the cilinderhead at low speeds, and i want to travel in relative silence.

Would be nicer too because of its invisibility, i'm having a look into it, as soon as i have thought out a system that easily to mount i will give a holler.

I think it's just the angle, left side of bike hanging tipped over on the sidestand, but what makes my technical eye a bit weary is that it only has mounting ponits at the underside, wont the rip out when the bik gets a hit, like the GS tends to rip out its bar mounting point, and tha angola trippers rip out the bashplate mounting ?

there are brackets that run back to the engine mounting plate..

I think I'm going to wait to see what Touratech have to offer, wait for Wasp to see what he has to offer.. then make my decision

Just by looking at the pics, it would seem the SW-Motech skid plate doesn't attach to potentially vulnerable places like the blokes had with the Yamaha plate on that Angola ride. But I've not seen it up close and personal. Does Waspworks send any of his stuff to the "colonies" ?

90% of my stuff is exported to the colonies (all around the world in fact) but at the moment I am still fact finding and designing components, like everyone else I guess.

When completed, the main differences between my stuff and other stuff will be that my stuff will be aesthetic, functional, light (as possible for the purpose) and not unnecessary. If you want tassels for the end of your bars you may have to look elsewhere.

similar mounting points.... it does look a little stronger.. but still not bulletproof.. take a look at the mounting instructions.. http://shop.sw-motech.com/cosmoshop/...50_10000_s.pdf
