Think I have the same one on my Duc, which will share time on the S10 when it arrives. V36 Givi.

The bike is virtually just run in with 1970 road kms. Has never been in the dirt. Is fitted with Motorrad billet adjustable foot pegs, Motorrad bar riser kit (not fitted yet), Ventura rack, have the optional Yamaha lower seat as well as the original seat, custom made highway peg brackets fitted with Kuryakin billet adjustable pegs.

Basically, the bike is ready to go anywhere. Always garaged, had 1st service with engine and diff oils changed. $18,000 and take it away.

I hope you have had many good memories of riding, Sam! It's difficult to come to grips with physical problems that can cause one to change doing the things they love most.

Physical problems will cause me to hang up my spurs in the coming years. I figure the S10 will be my last, two wheeled bike. It's been a wild ride, and I wouldn't trade the decades of riding I've enjoyed for anything.

Have you considered a trike? Much lower impact on the body and you still get your knees in the wind. Any two wheeled rider worth his salt understands a trike rider on a brotherhood level. No further words need be said.

I figure I'll end up giving one of those bad boys a try before I leave for good.

Small scary world eh?

Here's the side on shot of my bike + E52 topbox. Very useful tool. Did about 300 miles today. Started bloody cold but warmed up nicely. I think after the proper Givi mount turns up then a set of heated grips are the next must have.

Thanks for the pic. Gives me something to think about. I'm not sure which way I'm going. It would appear I have plenty of time to make up my mind.

knock sensor

There was a discussion a while back about whether or not the S10 has a knock sensor. The conclusion was "not".

This is a link to a manufacturer of engine knock sensors - I doubt it's a user-installable farkle, but interesting is the unit cost - $2 in quantities of 1000. Seems like it would have been cheap insurance against engine problems caused by bad fuel, if Yamaha had wanted to go that way...

I have that box on my S10. Looks a bit naff when placed against the metal mule panniers but it eats 2 lids and gets my thumbs up.

How are you getting on with the stock screen ?
I found the wind blast hit me centre of the visor stopping me riding with my visor up. On top of that the wife's head got a real buffetting. Sorted with an MDA Vario screen and Waspworks screen adjuster.

Congrats on the bike BTW.

Aussie air filter

This thread is about the filter conversion of the old S10, but is sort-of relevant to us XTZ1200 owners everywhere except Australia (I think - Sarth Efricans, do your bikes come with the unifilter?).

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...7#post15644237

As I said there...

I find it curious that Yamaha installed this filter only in Australia. Somebody said it was because of the fine dust there, but there are plenty of places in the world that have equally fine dust. Europe, maybe not, but every other continent has places I might (will...) take a Super Tenere, and that have fine dust.

$48AUD sounds very reasonable...

Trevor

what is the benefit of installing these filters instead of whatever we get here?
