Maybe they added 3lbs to the crank plate Or whatever that "not a sump" is called.
Yes, I hear the 'unobtanium' weighs slightly more.

Well, according to Yamaha's website anyway...
It's the extra ego after winning all the shoot outs. I was hoping it would have been
more humble about it.


(Would anyone mind explaining that to jaumev and Git Ray?)

Front end click noise.

I did the steering bearings adjustment today. I torqued all bolts as indicated before. The lower castle nut was out of spec as well as the main top triple nut, the one with the rubber plug. However, there is that annoying noise still coming from somewhere the front end. I have noticed that it also sounds when pulling backward the bike with the front brake on. As if I were trying to lift the bike from the bars. It also sound when the suspension sags when driving and obviously when abrupt diving.
Anyways, I am now confused cause I thought that tightening the steering would end with it. In the shop there was another S10, 700 km old!!!, and it kind of sounds too when hitting the suspension.
So, how come you have not heard yours?? If so, have you found it??? I have checked most of the front end parts such as horn, upper and lower pinch bolts, cables, brake lines. It definitely sounds in upper area.
I would appreciate you help

21" front wheel

At last!!
Today arrives the 21” front wheel so we can start to build the front fender brackets and looking where relocates the horn. Next monday I hope to have the new metallic brake lines (the previous ones needed to be improved) and start with the centre and side stands.
It looks great, I’m anxious to try it!!!

Hey jaumev,

Have they given you the bill yet or is this all sponsorship dollars?

So, how we all going on tyres?Just fitted my 5th rear at 28,000 ks
Sticking with the Mitas EO7



Just asmall tech tip also.............. use the axle in from the wrong side initially to line up the hub splines in the diff, once its in, pull the axle and insert from correct side


Also, am I the first to run a dual battery setup?

Fitted the first set of K60's to the bike before the last trip.

It was interesting.

Tires covered in wax, raining as I set off, road only trip, putty road first...Like I said interesting..

After 500Km I think some of the nipples had actually worn off.

Different world these tyres.

Now I suppose I need some protection to allow me to boost my real off road skills. I knew this would happen.

They did throw some good roost all over my mates RT at one stage though. They have their uses.
