Here is the 660 one. Note the date on the owners manual (not quick start).

https://support.garmin.com/support/m...hManuals.faces

It is seriously out of date. Without going through it, it still talks about Audio books. This feature was bought out by Amazon years ago.

BTW, as soon as you get time, plug it in to your computer and get it updated.

Seat comfort.... actually seat discomfort

My Super Tenere seat is a real pain in the bum after a while. I had an air hawk on my last bike.... but it is too long for the S10.

Anybody else have comfort issues with the seat.... and how did you overcome them?

Not too happy with the seat either, especially super slabbing when there's nothing to keep my mind off of it. Tried a sheepskin cover, slight improvement but not enough. Might try Sargent when I have the bucks.

Now for the oil filter relocation kit i think it a good mod because you can save time from removing the bash plate to have access to the oil filter. Does it need to be positioned again in horizontal or it doesn't matter if you install it in vertical position???
Today I was looking to move the oil filter... it's not easy, heavier, more lines... more possible troubles… I'm not sure about it.
A much easier option could be replace the OEM filter for a shorter one. Just 10 mm could make a big difference.
Do you know if this is possible?, does the engine can be damaged?
Thanks!

I have found the Tenere stock seat to be more comfortable than the stock seat on any of the bikes I've owned so far. After about 60K miles, I switched to a Sargent. The Sargent is firmer, dished, and somewhat wider. I put 900 miles on the Sargent between Friday and Saturday, stopping only for gas. With the stock seat in the same riding temperatures, I would have been squirming after the 3rd fill-up. I felt totally fine with the Sargent. I'm planning on doing a little bit more long distance testing over a wider temperature range in the next few weeks and will post results afterwards.

I plan on adding a heating element or buying a heated seat at some point so probably won't try beads.

Before spend a lot of money in a new seat you could try to modify the OEM.
I asked an artisan to do it.
He rounded the sides and lowered it in the middle, so the front it’s higher than before to avoid slip forward. Now my weight is distribute in the whole surface and is much comfortable.
He put a non slippery material on top that also helps. I love it!

Price: 70€

All of the aftermarket seat makers have offerings, and then there is the one that sells the cover and differently shaped foam. Google this:
