Hi Roberto.

We (Twisted Throttle) actually have a kit for sale that hard bolts the SW-MOTECH Side Carriers to the bike for more heavy duty use. I don't have any pictures right now. I am expecting stock of the kit in the next week or two.... When they come in I will add pictures to the product page: http://www.twistedthrottle.com/trade...view/6880/161/ The part number is KFA.00.840.10000.S

Question:

I looked at an S-10 today. On the front lower section of the fairing on each side, is a protrusion that looks like a grab-handle, but it's plastic.
What is it?

It is an engine guard. There is a video by Edog on Youtube showing it working. Not bad, but will surely be replaced by those looking for better protection.

it's the OEM "crash bar" - surprisingly efficient, when you watch the video where a guy crashes his bike on a tar road

Thanks.

Freeflow (Yamaha's on-retainer crack dealer) made me ride his sooperten a couple of weeks ago.

Yes, made me. Kept badgering me until I rode the damn thing. Dood is evil, if you haven't figured that out already.

I liked it.

My main ride is an 07 GSA, though I've ridden them all. Used to that weight, I found the s10 more nimble. Prefer the telelever front end because it makes it easier to push the front tire compared to a conventional fork. Damping and springing was a bit softer at both ends, not spongy by any means, but I didn't mess with the settings. Throttle response made it more difficult to rear-steer the bike, too. More on that in a bit.

The seat was better than the stock on my GSA at first blush, have to wait and see how it is after a couple of 1k days. He had the Rox risers already installed, which worked well for me, so I can't comment on the stock positioning. The windscreen was not stock (IIRC), dunno which one he had mounted, but the air was pretty clean, better than my Adv screen, anyways.

The feel of the transmission is quite smooth compared to my BMW. slick shifts, no clunks. The motor delivers power in a very similar way to a Moto Guzzi Stelvio. Visceral, lumpier, and feels like it revs up quicker than my GSA.

Which brings me back to the throttle response. I'm pretty sure there's another motor in there, struggling to get out. The motor feels lean, and the timing retarded, things which are done at the factory to ensure emissions compliance. I'd love to get my hands on a power commander (or the like) and start messing with these settings, because I really feel that this bike is capable of more, significantly so. In either sport or touring mode, the motor just felt really lean, on the borderline of surging. It wanted to spin up, but couldn't, it felt like. It does makes good power as is, I just think there's improved response and midrange to be had.

I'm eagerly awaiting the results of an inmate in the know coming back with some definitive data after some tuning time.

Using GS tire sizes was a smart choice (as Suzuki did with the Strom), it gives the owner plenty of selection without being too pricey.

The blue is purty...


And Freeflow? She doesn't know it yet, but I think he just made my wife's 'I don't like him much' list.

I understand you tried 'sport' mode. Did you also reach up with your left hand and press the button on the left side of the instrument pod to select TCS-2?

I don't recall, so I'd assume that I didn't. Wazzat do?
