Sorry, probably you talk in previous threads about the next questions but with my limited English is difficult to understand, so I’m asking you again:
I suppose Woody's wheels cant be tubeless.
Don’t you thing they need a tyre brake? (I don’t know the name in English, see photo), especially in the rear wheel.



Is there enough space between the rear tyre and the cardan in case of mud?
Is it possible to use Woody hub in the rear wheel? I think the best option is to have 2 wheels sets: the OEM ones to road trips and 21 and 18 to off road.

Thanks!!
Hi Jamey,,i'm in Germany right now,,,so 'll chime in from 'up-there'

Wasp-man's rear 2.5x18 is sealed for tubeless,,,if you run 26psi or more on the rear you are good to go,,,we have lot's of experience with the Kim 950/990s and the BMW HP-2s using this configuration,,,NO SLIPPAGE and even if there were ,,,there's no tube inside to rip the valve stem off!!!

The rim locks is what we English speakers call them ,,were designed to run very low tire pressures in wet conditions,,,and yes,, to keep the tire from spinning on the rim ,,,which of course led to valve stems being ripped out of the tube.

Wasp-man will need to chime in on the 140x18Mefo tire clearance,,our trials with the 130x18 suggested more than enough clearance from our extrapolations.

Good luck wasp-man with your first trial runs,,I'm all ears as I'm sure a few others are too

Thanks for your explanation Woody. I saw the air valve and it doesn't look tubeless.

LED lights

Greg,

I know you've posted this before somewhere, but can you give me the skinny on your LED lights? Which brand and model are they? Total current draw for all three? How much nighttime light do they put out? Reliability? I bought some cheap LED lights from a guy in the Flea Market just for a try. One of them crapped out almost right away, but it made me a believer in the new LEDs. Looking to buy a better set, but they're enough money that I want to make sure whatever I get is going to light up the night and is going to last.

Thanks!

They are the 'Solstice LEDs' from VisionX. You can get the same lights in a complete package with relay harness and switch from Twisted Throttle. Twisted throttle re-brands then as 'Denali D1s' Wasp just bought three of the VisionX and joined them together as they are desighed to do that; a much more cost-effective route.

Fresh pics in the wild.

I managed to get some fresh pictures yesterday of the bike in the wild (or at least out doors).
I dont think I have posted any from a decent distance with the newly painted black fork-leg protectors yet.







I still havent managed to get out in the forest for a decent shake-down ride yet. We were scheduled to head out Sunday gone but I managed to pull a muscle in my chest on Saturday. Soon...

Greg.

Raising double and single stand

Hi Greg ... wondering how did you managed to raise the double and single stand to accept the 21" front and 18" rear increase in height?
Cheers,
Roberto

Have the centre stand and side stand weld on extensions in place from my suspension raising kit.




You will need to extend the centre stand by around 16>20mm and the side stand by around 40mm.

Greg.

Wasp..have patience my friend!

Back on the subject. Your 21/18 setup is with the short dog bones on the back?
What is the new seat height more or less compared to stock?

Wasp,

I have been following your thread(s) from the beginning, and have to say you are the reason the S10 is on the top of my list for my "big bike". I currently ride an XR650L, which I love, but want a bigger adventure touring bike, to explore western Canada and Alaska. I love the look of your bike and the mods you have done are impressive.

Now that the S10 is available here, I can't wait to take a ride on one and eventually add one to the garage. I may have to source a set of silver side panels and seat from you or someone else on your side of the world, much nicer than the black ones on the NA spec bikes.

Keep on doing your thing so all of us can see what a great bike the S10 is

Thanks for the comments Grover. It is unbelievable how many people have said the same "I blame Greg for making me buy this bike" line...

Geez - I hope these bikes dont start shitting final drives or seizing engines... I'll have a bloody linch mob at my doorstep.

Seriously though, with enough patience and the right amount of aggression (or desperation) this bike WILL go just about anywhere. Just dont get it bogged to the tank base or try and push it up a muddy hill on yer own It'll break your heart - Literally

Greg.
