Hi Greg,
I hope I'm not in the wrong place here, but I had small incedent the other day that resulted in both front rotors being warped. My mechanic has recommended aftermarket rotors as the OEM will take three weeks to arrive. I'd just like to know if you have had experience with aftermarket rotors and if so, would recommend OEM over the others? If this is a hijack i can nuke the post. Thanks mate.

Mark.

Normally I would recommend Galfer but the OEM discs are actually Galfer anyway.
You could try Braking and see if they have a substitute. I have always gone for a name brand when I have been changing rotors and certainly wouldn't trust a chinese brand/knock-off on my bike.
The standard disc's are 4.5mm thick, not 5mm. 5mm may be ok but just saying.
Disc's are 310mm - Min pad dia is 242mm, max pad dia is 306

Thanks Greg,
You've confirmed my intention. The OEM brakes have been fine, and I don't see any reason to change, plus, my baby WILL NOT suffer any substandard knock-offs. Also, the OEM rotors are $40 cheaper. Keep up the good work mate.

Thanks again.
Cheers, mark.

High front guard for the S10.....

Been playing around with a couple of front guards for the Super Tenere.
Still not quite happy with it but there are a couple more coming so I will just keep trying till I find one that I like.

Once the guard has been selected, I will move onto the brake lines/routing and then the fork leg guards.

I thought I better place these pics here.
although I am not sure if it is something that will go into production, but just in case I do offer them, I didnt want to put anyones nose out of joint.

Very nice looking Greg. Have you had a chance to test it on the asphalt? Wonder what the the higher CoG has on handling both on and off road.

Don't take this negatively. After I had my Tenere for two weeks I realized it was a better KLR. Now that I see your Tenere I realize I was mistaken and you have the KLR Extreme. Like how you upgraded all the performance parts and kept the remainder to a minimum. Stock windshield, no skidplate, no side plate, no rear inner fender, stock seats, tankbag for luggage, no engine / body guards, and whatever I missed. Like your look and I am sure it is as light as can reasonably be. Looking forward to your future reports.

I have managed to get a couple of 150+km rides on both the dual disc and the single disc wheels.

I absolutely love it and have done a couple of quick RR's on Woody's 21" wheel thread: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=759952 Specifically: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...&postcount=139

Some good dirt riding is coming up as the weather cools and moistens here, so stay tuned to Woody's thread.

Greg.

Nice work Greg, but my styling $0.02 is that a MX-style fender doesn't work on this bike as the fender looks too small/narrow and is out of proportion to the massive cheeky jowls of the S10. It needs something wider, flatter, and more beakish.

Again, just my $0.02.

Figured that much. You ride hecka crazy in extreme conditions. The inner fender would mount to the lower sub-frame rails and a couple available holes for bolts an nuts. There have been a couple riders do this. I asked if the rear tire would ever compress that far and never received an answer. If it works it would solve the dirt, water, mud, gravel, from being expelled out of the right side. I was thinking of using a 12" x 24' sheet of corrugated plastic trimmed to fit. "That is if the rear tire does not interfere."

This is a work in progress .. here some photos of my Black Pearl with her cousin XT660Z with high fenders on both ... will upload another set with my 'half low fender' as soon as finished ... waiting for my wheels from Woody.

Thanks Roberto. I have the same guard here but did not like the length sticking out the front.
It's hard to get just the right look when the guard cant really go up any higher huh?

I may have to send you a pm to see if I can buy a set of your fork leg protectors.
I would like a similar thing, but not sticking forward any further than necessary. I would probably prefer if the front edge is only just in front of, and covering, the forward mount points then tapering back to the fork leg quicker.

Hey Roberto...
Would you be able to post up a picture from full side on with your bike (on it's centre stand) so I can see the guard height and profile? Same as the second pic below...

Greg.

I was pretty keen to see/feel how the high guard is on the bike and if the obstruction has any impact on air coming up through the steering column hole.

So, along with my MacGyvered ABS sensor mount I decided to MacGyver the brake lines into position to allow full wheel articulation.
Once I have had a chance to play with this I will re-fit the dual disc 21" wheel and add the second set of lines.

I'm liking the look so far but will be better when I locate the right mudguard and fit the fork protectors.





Greg.

Greg,

Along with everyone else, I'm really anxious to see what you come up with. I live on two miles of sand, and in the morning when I go to work, the sand is wet and sticky, and the stock fender is completely inadequate. Sand gets all over EVERYTHING, including me.

So, I'm hopeful your fender will turn out well in the end. I'll have to do some experimentation to see if there's any benefit to running both.
