Would it be ok to put that size fuse in or should i just clip the pump to battery and just use the aux socket to run a gps and the like
This is the reason I put an auxiliary 12 V outlet under the seat that is connected to my Fuzeblock with larger fuse. I hope I won't need it but easy to get to if need to use the air pump. I will reserve the OEM socket for things like radar detector and small stuff like that.

See my posts on this topic in this same thread as to what my handlebar vibration problem was like, conditions under which it presented and how I solved it. In brief......careful throttle body synch, grip puppies, changed to TT handguards, and added a throttle locker/cruise control and rotated the bar slightly forward did the trick for my situation and anatomy. Look carefully at your ergonomics. YRMV.

By the way, very light grip on the bars.....imagine a crisp $100 bill folded over between your glove and the bar and ride like you don't want to crease it. Of course when in blows like stink or in very difficult conditions that won't work but you get the idea. Think "light hands" and more gripping of bike and turning of the bike with your lower-down bits. Good luck!

I am also very sensitive for vibrations and a few nice bikes had to go becourse of that. First, this bike vibrates in the bars. Not everyone feels it it seems like, could be use of thicker gloves or not beeing sensitive for vibrations.

I have tried to "rubber isolate" the handlebar, didn't work. During the process of removing and reinstalling the bars several times I recently noticed a sudden improvment when I put the bars back. As I belive it just had to do with the exact torque beeing applied and/or maybe the positioning of the bars, whitch is now slightly more pulled towards me (so that I can see the entire dashboard also).

My greatest hope will be the aftermarket pipe Ill get soon in combination with the Power commander (that I already have installed).

There is also vibration damped working gloves to get, ill try those soon also.

Just wanted to share :)

Just score two GS handlebar weight, they are almost twice the weight, and kill them harmonics completely, you will nead to make a bushing to keep them in place because the Yamaha weight go under the grips, but some piping connectors shortened are ideal, and the more rounded tapered weight look better than the cheap edgy blobs...



Look at the handlebar weight okay, not at the bird !

You need to drop the resolution on the photo.

I got fed up waiting for it to load and gave up.

Who wants to join me to look at Hepco Becker gear? Northern VA

Saturday morning I have a appointment to look at HB stuff that Capital Cycles has in stock for the Super Tenere. They have most parts except for a few of the smaller ones.

I'll be taking photos, let me know via PM if there are any particular things you might be interested in.

Anyone wants to come, PM me for details. Maybe we can meet at the warehouse and have lunch after?

Which current S10 owners have Hepco Becker gear installed?

Can we get a report from you? Looks like good stuff to me, but expensive... need to make sure it's worth the money!

Bars closer to you = less pressure on the bars while riding. I think that has more to do with it than the torgue applied to the clamps...unless the bars were VERY loose. Sounds like the poster "Remba in Paluda" has a good cure with the GS bar-end weights.

HB gear

I am interested in their skidplate and quick release saddlebag racks (if they will hold my KTM GOBI bags). Maybe some other farkle that catches my eye, I am a sucker for anything that says "deal". :)



Rema - What kind of bird is that in your picture?
