The uphill climb there pulling out of tight corners shows up that snatchiness in the lower rpm points around or just under 2000 rpm. so you really need to keep it on the higher boil a little but it does the job well.

Are you going to make and offer this pipe setup yourself or are you going to just supply them to Mottorad to market?

That snatchiness is the engine letting you know it's not happy,so keep it happy. I believe big twins like to spin at a reasonable RPM, and the engine transmit that happiness through your arse, handlebars and footpegs, just try to imagine whats going on inside your engine when you try to pull away at very low RPM's, cam chain going ballistic, unsettled crankshaft rotation and this filters back through the gear box to the final drive, backlash I believe it is called.

I really dont power on under 3000-4000 RPM, I'll cruise at 2500, but if I want quick acceleration when the engine load factors are going to be high(3rd gear and above) I'm up in the rev range prior to givin it the message. Thats my take on big twins anyway.

Sam, I believe Greg introduced the zorst can as the MotorradSport cat back.

Yes, I believe you are correct. more on the boil is what this bike needs. I'm used to brute torque from just off idle but I'm getting used to the Tenere's needs.

Don't understand what you mean about the exhaust. Is he selling it direct?

Greg would be the one to clear this issue up, but I believe it will be sold through Motorrad Garage.

Sorry guys.
Busy day and just back on-line to see this.

The exhaust is a JV between www.motorradgarage.com.au and www.waspworks.com and will be available through both outlets.
Mike will be able to get the product on-line quicker than I can so that would be the place to look first.

I am mindful that this is a member forum with out advertising or company promotion so if there are any further questions they should be taken up through p.m to myself or mike (Allords) or e-mail me at greg@waspworks.com or to Mike at info@motorradgarage.com.au

Sourcing of components and services to manufacture the exhaust will be complete in the next couple of days so a price and availability will be shown on the Motorradgarage website then.

Greg.

On a completely different subject, I notice your dyno charts from Wayne Patterson Motorcycles...

No, it wasn't a vintage event... the bikes were current models... so you can figure out how long ago that was!

Well, the long story short is that I am in partnership with Wayne's son Todd.
Todd owns Bunbury Motorcycle Dyno and helped develop the WaspPUK (Power Up Kit) for the Ducati SportClassic/Hyper/Monster/Superbikes, which explains the invaluable and unlimited access I have to a dyno (and one of the best tuners in the state).

Wayne and the family are well... Good people.

I actually have a customers SC1000S here (picking up tomorrow) after fitting a PUK and pipes and a few other bits and pieces.
I have mentioned previously (and think I have posted a pic) of my SC1000S very similar to this one.
After installing the PUK I went for a test ride, and I must say, as small and light and grunty and as much fun as they are, I dont miss the Duc one bit since getting the S10.

The pic doesn't relay what I was seeing very well but the S10 is an imposing bike standing next to my previous ride.... Worlds apart.

I agree, nice looking bike. Really really like what Yamaha (and you :-)) has done here. This bike is calling me. LOL

I know this is getting off the subject a tad, but I totally agree with Greg, I unloaded a '08 1098S after I rode the S10 for 2hrs on a demo. While the 1098 was a beautifully crafted piece of engineering, went like shit off a shovel, and disclocated the arms when you jumped on the picks, it was in the end a race bike with a number plate, with ergonomics to match, and while I did enjoy it, I don't miss it.

For sheer comfortable riding enjoyment, great handling, electronic aids that work very well, it is without doubt the best bike I have ridden, ever, a big statement, but that is what bike number 15 is.

For anyone that has not ridden one, especially you blokes in the US of A, it's gunna knock your socks of.

I have been practicing going barefoot while reading the owners manual.

Yup twin needs 2000 minimal for loaded happiness and single needs 3000 for loaded happiness because of the negative torque, e.g. the decelleration on compression, as soon as the revs pick up the momentum of the balancer weights of the crank minimise the pulsating, take a heavy tuned SOS racer and it needs even more to just keep ticking over :-)

Oh then you miss the point of this engine, thats why its soooo long in the teeth, it got gobsmacks of thrust in high gear low rev. I persomally think (my bike is now at 11k) it even gets better, and the vibe at 2700 when the real fun kicks in is just the clutch damperspring doing s are a little dance against the transmissiondamper in the cush drive, but aside the Vibe it really pulls into the TC1 at full throttle at low revs until 4th gear ;-)


Saves a lot of gas to ride high gears, and it sounds soooo beautifull if you skip the 2nd and 4th gear, letting it run through the revs and the belch it back to 2000 in 3rd and Play it again S-am.

P.S. Greg have you painted the screen black too, looks goood

Nope, that's the CalSci sport shield. Nicely done.

Speaking of RPMs, how bad is the break-in period?

The manual says:

01000 km (0600 mi) Avoid prolonged operation above 3900
10001600 km (6001000 mi) Avoid prolonged operation above 4700

On my DL1000 it is almost impossible to ride at 3900 RPM. Really feels like it's lugging the engine. Is it miserable to ride the S10 during the first 600 miles?

Yep, Calsci tinted shorty. Just a night time shot so no see-through.
