2 big ones and 4 small ones. But there have been improvements so I have heard.

PM Jaumev. He's the Development rider.

I think there is removable oil filter cover and extra holes for the drain plugs so you don't have to remove it.
Don't know whether that is his personal version or a production change though.

That's his personal version. Been in touch with Cedric and it sounds like they are willing to make one-off changes at an extra cost. Will check into those mods.

Yeah... Cedric is angry with me... I'm quicker than him developing farkles…

I’m trying to convince him to do the mods but he’s too busy, hope he can use my bike to do the changes in some weeks.

This is my version: change the front to fit the 21” wheel, add a different filter cover with bolts to take it off and bigger holes to drain the oil. Work fine.

You should add to your already considerable talents and do night sand riding. Glowing pipes at night looks really pretty

. Some of the clearances were a bit off though. Wonder why. Poor thing



But ofter it was modified back to the original shape it was easy enough.

In a few days I'll be off showing anyone who is interested.

My black s10 will be used mainly for comfy long distance touring on the blacktop, and therefore has no off-road modifications.

It has been fitted from new with the yamaha touring kit, which included OEM panniers and top box, heated grips, tank bag, tall screen and fog lights. I have added givi crash bars, and a touratec adjustable screen mount and GPS lockable bracket.

I thought that the yellow world crosser decal kit would brighten up the black, and I am very pleased with the resulting look.

Looks very nice

Wish mine was still in that pristine condition but after making it to Prudhoe Bay the engine is showing some corrosion from all the salt

Did you have the panniers painted?

Imitation and flattery and all that. Simple and rock solid. Stabilized the wind screen and the GPS and all that fun stuff.

Thumb Front fender width

Could I please get a little help from one of you guys? I am building a custom gravel runner/ scrambler and I would like to use a Super tenere front fender . Can I get someone to shoot me a measurement on the space between the front fork tubes where the fender would fit? Thanks in advance,
Jim m.

Thanks for your comments, the panniers and top box are the black ones from the factory.

Checked out your pics, some amazing shots....

You wouldn't happen to have shot of your bike from the front, would you? Trying to see how easy it'd be to mount driving lights to the Givi engine guards.
