so what's the consensus on the Yamaha side cases? I can get a good deal on them and I like the way they look, but how durable are they? I understand they are plastic clad aluminum, and worry if a spill will do serious damage.

SW motech crash bars

Hi all,
Just thought I'd pass on some info on the SW-motech side crash bars.
I joined the puss brigade and put some heated grips on my bike yesterday. To wire them up the right hand side plastics had to be removed to access the Supertenere's battery...
I can say that with my bike fitted with the crash bars I was easily able to remove the side casing by unfastening it and rotating the fairing piece anti clock wise and lifting it out...gaining access to the battery..

just a little snippit of information,
Horseman.

Dont know if its the best, but I decided on the SW Motech myself. Price was one factor, availability another(couldnt get it locally when i was looking), but the main thing was i didnt like the very vertical front face of the Altrider one, the SW Motech is more angled and more likely to slide over an obstacle to my way of thinking. But thats just me and what I decided.

I like the Altrider bars and might get them when they finally become available. Why? I like the mountings, the way the load is spread and I like the look of the stainless over the blue/silver paint (can't chip like powder coat). And I don't want my bike to look like it's surrounded by builders scaffolding.

I really want more info on the unit made over in South Africa-

http://motogear.co.za/75/shopbrowse

Combined skid plate with crash bars. Looks like a pretty good set up!

That looks good. Never heard of them over this side of the pond. Any chance of a link to where you purchased?

Thanks.

Paul,

Take a look at Wasp's exhaust also. http://www.motorradgarage.com.au/cat...oducts_id=1183


Here are some youtube clips of it. I have yet to hear a Super Tenere exhaust that sounds as good as this: (though it is a bit expensive)

with baffle




without baffle

Excellent stuff. Sounds and looks great. Pardon my ignorance as i'm new to the 10 and it's farkles, but is the motorradworks stuff Australian and linked to Mike of Waspworks?
I only ask as far as shipping is concerned.

Hi Tim,

I understand your concern. I have been talking with Traxxion Dynamics about their building a front end kit for the S-10. Depending when mine arrives, I am planning to ship them my forks so that they can use them as a fitting mule for production.

I have their front end kit on my KTM 990 and it is superb, I also have the Penske Rear Shock on the 990 and it is very nice.

At 6'4" 245 I expect that all MC stock suspension will be stressed for me and just change it over at purchase. I already have the rear Ohlin purchased for the S-10 and in the garage so I am halfway there.

I sat on the bike and it seemed fine ergonomically for me. I believe that stuff like suspension can be fixed and it is a constant on all our bikes.

You are almost correct. Mike is the guy that runs the motorradgarage website that sells the product.

Wasp (whose name is actually Greg) of waspworks is the guy who designed and produced a number of products for the super tenere including that exhaust. He's the guy in that video.

Yes they are australian and based near Perth, I believe.


Here is Greg's thread down in the vendors section. He discusses all of his products http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=595933

no problem. To further clarify, I think he refers to anything that is sold through the motorrad garage website a "Motorradworks" product as opposed to waspworks product.

Another product that you may find very useful is the windscreen adjustment bracket http://www.motorradgarage.com.au/cat...oducts_id=1191
