I think you really are going to love it mate.

I made the mistake initially of putting some chewing gum soft full knobby tires on when I first got my 18" rear and it felt like shit... Could hardly touch the throttle in any gear on road or it would spin madly. That was nearly six weeks ago but since then I have installed 90/90-21 and 140/70(?)-18 Heidenau's and it feels bloody awsome.

It now rides in the dirt like a dirt bike should ride (albiet a farkn heavy one) and on road is just glorious.
The rear tire is very large diameter on the 2.5" wide rim and is only millimeters from the swing-arm centre now, but the speedo is just about spot on and is only shows 2kph discrepancy from actual GPS speed.
In hindsight though if I was to change anything (and possibly still will) I think the 3.5" wide rear would be a better choice for the size and bulk of this bike. It would make the tires sit just a little wider and smaller rolling diameter , and probably allow a better selection of tires.

I would definitely stick with the silver color on this bike though.... I love to look compared to the OEM black wheels.
On that subject - I did plan on fitting a new set of OEM tires to the standard 17/19" wheels and swapping out each time i go for a long ride but I honestly dont think I would bother. I really do prefer the way this feels now compared to how it was as standard.

I was out from about lunch time today and only managed about 15kms of gravel/jeep trail before hitting the road for a 150km ride with a few visits to mates places along the way.

I now have the dual discs back up and functional and I must say I prefer the feel of the less lever effort stopping power at the expense of a couple extra kgs weight.
I have also replaced my rear raising links with the standard units until I can get some half height ones laser cut.
I found the bike felt a little too high with the raising links, even with the seat in the low position (which I now prefer), so I can raise the bike half way and get the benefit back of the quicker steering + more ground clearance again + have my seat back in the more comfortable low position.

I didnt stop long enough to get the camera out until well after dark so I snapped a few shitty (very high ISO) pics under a street light. Unfortunately I was stuck without a flash or any fast lenses.




I also found time to do the clutch switch bypass trick to restore full power in the first three gears - In one word "WOW" what a difference!!! This thing pulls like a frig'n freight train off the line now... I nearly had an epileptic seizure watching the TCS light go crazy on the dash. The bike was in TCS1 and the back was spinning and hopping like mad trying to keep up with the TCS. I can imagine with street or even OEM tires fitted it would go like stink.
If you havent done this mod yet, do yourself a favor and try it.

I did a bit of a report and added a few pics of the brake line project over at: http://www.waspworks.com/gallery/sup...0220712_02.jpg and that has worked out really well in combination with the high front guard system allowing full steering articulation and suspension travel.

Will keep all posted with further pics and stories as I get to head bush from now on.

Greg.

Gdday Greg,
Good to see your s10 back for us all to enjoy. In answer to your question, I haven't got the new 18' rear on yet ( waiting on a dunlop rally raid d908 140/80/18 ) to turn up. While we are on the subject of rear tyres, you wouldn't know the overall diameter of the rear heidenau you've got on by any chance??? the dunlop is 27.24 inches. youve got me thinking about swing-arm clearance.

Ive had the 21' front on for while now, ( with a 606 dunlop knobby) and it absolutely transforms the bike when off road. the handling in mud, sand, hard pack dirt , gravel is all fabulous. I was interested to hear the you got good handling on tar with the heidenau's. The terrain that I am in is extreme for dirt bikes and glorious for road bikes. So my plan to swap the wheels is as good as i can do, and was always the plan. sticky 19'/ 17' road rubber to hunt sports bikes. ( and dont they hate it) and full 21'/18' knobbies to play in the 20,000 hectare's of pine forest/wilderness mountains my farm backs onto.

I love the high guard mount that you made, and the brake set up looks horn as well. Please let me know if you are going into production with them as I would deferentially buy a set . Your fork protectors are cool too.

keep up the good work Greg, youve inspired me as least to go out play with my pride and joy. cheers cams
