SW-Motech crash bars

I'm just trying to make a choice for near future.

I have SW-Motech Crash bars installed and can still remove the side panels. They stick out about an extra 1-2 inches. Hope that helps.

Picture about 5 pages back.

Found it. Thanks!!! Do you have any other shots - like maybe some that show how far the bars stick out on each side?

Does anyone remember/know of some footpeg "extensions" (as opposed to complete pegs) that are available for the S10.

I have it in my head that some were shown but try as I might, I just cannot find them.

Of course, being old, I could have dreamt it up - who knows ?

Hope this helps, they are very solid. I'm a mechanical spaz so I had them put on with my first service. I also have long legs and they don't get in the way. Still trying to work out how to add more than 1 photo ...

Yeah, thanks for the pics of the SWMotech bars. At present, they are the leading candidate for me. I also think I can mount some highway pegs on the lower portion of those bars. I've had a lot of SWMotech products in the past and always been pleased with their quality.

Funny you should mention that JDP.
Steve (cul8rr) dropped in on Friday and grabbed a set of SWM crash bars from me, and at the same time spied the highway pegs sitting in storage, (I only ever had them fitted to the Yamaha bars).
A short negotiation later (actually he stole them) and he was on his way back to Bunbury feet forward and touring in style

Keep an eye out for his upcoming report.

Greg,
What was your overall opinion of the SW-Motech bars?

Sorry if this has already been answered, but is there a power outlet plug on the S10, from Yamaha, to attached heated gear or plug in a GPS?

Only a little over 4 months until the first S10's arrive in the USA.

Thanks.

Yep, its a large cigarette lighter type one below the clocks in the right. Comes on with the side lights so, works when the ignition is in "park" mode and the keys are out.

Thanks for the info.

The BMW's I've owned all have a recommended service interval of 6,000 miles at a cost of $300 - $450 for each service.

If you take an S10 to the Yamaha dealer and let them do the recommended service, what is the interval and what is the cost?

I sure hope Yamaha comes out with a better "heated grips" option by the time this bike comes to the USA.

I used my heated grips on the BMW's I've owned on most of my rides. With the S10, I might just buy heated gloves and attach them to a heater liner.

I have found my thumbs would get cold even with heated grips when the temperature dropped below 40 degrees.

I love to ride in Canada in the summer and it is not unusual for it to be raining with temperatures in the low to mid 30's during the warmest times of the year that far north.

Thanks again.

I'm thinking this started life as a silver Super Tenere due to the (coveted) silver wheels, and someone did a nice paint job with the neat graphics. Did you notice the matching jacket the guy had on. The Valencia helmet would look nice on this bike too.

..........
Now this is the good part.....

The servicing is so easy you can do it all yourself till the valves need checking at 24000.

The intervals are 600miles initially and then at 6000 mile steps.

Either way, it is realy simple and it will not cost much.

My BMW virtually ordered me (the SERVICE sign on the clocks) to take it to a dealer for horribly expensive servicing .... not any more
