I pulled the tank and opened the airbox last night while it was cooling, nothing to report here.
I gave the starter a tickle at 6:30 this morning, started no probs.
I think it was just punishing me for ignoring it for 9 days.
My place is high and dry despite the torrential downpours.
Cheers

Could it have been some condensation pooling in the tank? Seems like a possibility after the last week, although I would have thought at least it would have fired with the remaining fuel in the lines. Greater minds than mine would probably work it out.

The bike definitely doesn't mind a bit of a swim, so I would have to agree that is not much of a possibility.

Cheers

OK, so I read what happened to Robbo's bike not starting and as I live in the Illawarra (the heart of the major storms and heavy rain lately) it got the better of me so I went to my garage just to start my baby for self satisfaction.
The dam thing took ages to START !!! . Just cranked over before the battery packed it in... I have 11 thou on her and have never had an issue before. I have also ridden through and camped out in some heavy rain before...
Maybe it is a condensation issue and I had not ridden her in 2 weeks.....
Anyway as I type this I can hear her sitting idling away happily and we are still mates.....
Something for the masses to ponder.

I've been out and about riding in heavy rain and then had the bike out in the rain all night with no issues the next morning. This is very strange.

The humidity has been greater than 80% for 29 of the last 31 days where I come from, and lots of rain. Gets hot and humid then gets rainy and cool. Perfect condensation weather.
I'll be trying my bike tonight, next to the charger with a bottle of Metho at the ready I think.

By the way it's a DL1K, be interested to see if there are any differences though.

Robbo and Horseman,

Now I am wondering on the wisdom of Saturday's meet up! Your bikes have clearly been infected with the "S10 won't start after no riding and it's pissing down" virus.

My bike is working fine and I'd like to keep it that way, so on Sat can you blokes please park your bikes AWAY from mine!!

Oh yeah, go and get some of those asian flu masks to wear in case its carried by humans.

See you Sat. (BYO floaties)

Those heat shields really change the look too. Probably one of the last things I'll be picking up for the bike. Nice.

It is strange none have engine guards or panniers, one would think that since it is a Yamaha commercial they would showcase the bikes as well as the farkels.

I for one love the way the S10 weightlessly glides on dirt and sand, what a pleasurable bike it is to ride

I will maintain a respectful distance. There may be a couple of ringins too, a Wee Strom and a GS12 but we won't talk to them.......

Thats because they have finally realised that they are crap and an embarrassment to the rest of the bike.
