But there is already a *TON* of information about both plugs here on ADVrider as well as on the Yamaha Super Tenere forum site. Just do some searches, or use Google and just use "ADVrider" or "Yamaha Super Tenere forum" in the search string line.

Remember, the "Search" is your friend...

I did not know the S10 had a prewired system for aux lights and heated grips. There are two of them just in front of the battery. Lights connector is the one with three wires, and the grips' with four wires. But what if i use one of them for connecting my air compressor?? Will it work?? Plugs even came with the female plugs.
I wonder if the light connector will work for any kind of aux lights??? Can I connect a pair of rigid dually lights??

Thanks for your help!!!

Aux light plug has 2 12V circuits.
Constant 12V on the red/white wire - 20 amps - labeled O/P in fuse box.
Switched 12V on the tan wire - is part of ignition circuit.
Negative is black wire.

I run the constant to a relay and use the other to switch it.

I guess all the comparison talk was true.

I think you also managed to single handedly turn a blue Tenere into chick repellent.

Almost a matching set. Both Sampsonite, but ones almost double the cost of the other. I think the moral is that Goodwill is a better adventure bike value than St Vincent De Paul.

I know, I know... I understand you...

Dont steal it please! If you like you can have a ride with it in your way back to the UK

With the 21" wheel I didn't reach the floor so I lower the seat. Its custom made by an artisan in Barcelona who does very nice bike seats using the OEM so its a lot cheaper than a complete seat.

At the same time I asked to change the shape making it bit narrower in the front. The shape and the non slide material on the top helps to avoid slip forward as in the OEM seat.
I like also the materials and colours!!

Haha, not my bike. Just saw it. I love it. I'm sure he's got some real bags, but I dig the anti bling of them.

Chicks? Haha. Classic bikes draw old men to you, Harley's draw girls to you (God only knows why), but an adventure bike should be in the dirt where there aren't any girls around anyhow.

I agree, but I find myself wondering what he keeps in the squirt gun. Whatever it is, I'm afraid. Very afraid.

After needing a tube two times now I decided to try and come up with a spot
it would always be on the bike for those non bag rides. Bought a fender tube
bag and after holding it all over the place this made the best sense for easy
removal and not in the way of anything else. Cut the little hooks off so they
wouldn't vibrate on the cover.



Tucked it inside the Altrider side guards running the strap so it won't blow
back. The other pipe angle should keep it from coming forward.



Then Christmas came early and a Zumo 660 was on my porch. I hard wired
the mount. In the past I've always used the power outlets. The last couple
rides kinda did my Garmin 276c mount in. Also where the power cord went
into the GPS wouldn't stay in anymore. Rubber bands and tape got it out
of Baja. Anyway, this new unit plays music too so I can get rid of the i-pod
and it's charging cord as well.



My other motivation was the 276c never worked over the border. I had bought
Garmin's Mexico map set and it was useless on a Copper Canyon ride.

The mount feels solid. Still, I think in the future if it's bad off road I'll put
the unit in the tank bag until it's over.




You can plug audio into the unit or it had cords on the hardwire for headphones
and computor connections. I just ran a headphone jack here too.




I had an assortment of zip ties out while routing wires. My grandaughter always
loves to be involved and was quietly so busy on the other side of the bike.
When finished I noticed this......

You will have to give a few minutes with it. I took it out of the box,
mounted it and played with it for a couple minutes on the bike.
I don't know screen options, how the music works or much about it.

Reviews seemed good and it's suppose to be motorcycle and
glove friendly.

Kinda pricey compared to what you can get other systems for.
Nothing but the best for my baby.

Here is a little size comparison. My original GPS V, a Street Pilot, the 276c
and the new Zumo 660 in front. It's a skinny little thing compared to the others.



Just playing with it it's way more intuitive on entry items.
After about three letters it already has options for me
to just touch and load. Big letters easy to see. Kinda weird
you have to go between screens for more letters because
of the size. Just a little something to get used to. People who
text a lot will love it. I don't text much so little slow for me.
So were my other Garmins to type into.

I like it's suppose to be pre-loaded with North America detail
maps. Meaning you can type an address or search for about
anything in detail. My old ones needed detailed areas uploaded
from a computer. Sometimes taking two memory cards for a trip
into high population areas.

I'm actually the last person who should be giving an opinion on one of these.
I don't know how to track, upload pre-determined routes or half the crap
these will do. I just like knowing how far to go, arrival time, and something
to glance down at on a long straight away. It's the ultimate backseat driver
because you can shut it off.

Thanks Pluric...I was really disappointed with Garmin when they discontinued the [X]76C series.

I was disappointed when their own web site said the 276c was compatable
with Mexico mapping. Bought the unit based on that and it was useless.

As you see I have forgiven them and came crawling back. Reminds me of
my in-laws kept buying the same model of car that gave them fits. When he came
home with another one I just said "You sure showed them for building a crap car".

I stopped at the Iron Pony store in Columbus last night and they have a mate black S 10 on the floor. I really like the look in that color and have been thinking about selling my 2007 KTM adventure for the Yamaha. I wanted to see if anyone has had a KTM and a S 10 and can provide pros and cons of the Yamaha over they KTM.
I find my riding is 100 % on the road and dirt roads, not getting off on trails so I want to get a bike that is more touring oriented. I want cruise control, good wind protection with out buffeting, good ride on rough and bad roads.
I enjoy a bike with good power and do not want to get anything with less power then the KTM.
How much do engine mods wake up the S10?
I would go with a slip on or full system, not sure if a ECU reflash is needed or are you guys going with a Power commander with auto tune? I see some are doing a clutch mod to improve power in lower gears?

I looked at BMW's, Triumph's, and Multi Strada. I just have had my share of European bikes poor dealer net works and want to go shaft drive this time so the S 10 is top on the list. Like the new FJR but the up right seating of the S10 is more my style.
