Yes, I had to put the original suspension links back on mousitsas. My extended centre stand was just a little too low with the increase in ground clearance.

I do plan on cutting a set that are in the middle length between standard and my raising links just to prop it up a bit. I do love how the bike feels with the tail end raise slightly. Plus I have always enjoyed the reassurance of a bit extra ground clearance.

I have the seat set to low and It currently sits about the same (maybe a bee's dick higher) as with the OEM bike on the high set setting.

Well spotted mate.

Greg.

Wasp, you are a guru. You seem to understand the bike so well that you can do all those mods without the slightest heaadache. Cheers Mate.

GOOD LOOKING RIDE!!!!!!!!!!! It really looks like it could tackle anything now. Hope you don't mind but I plan on heading to Woody's to see about the same wheels and setup. Woody are you at the shop or still strolling around the globe? I'll be in Denver tomorrow. If you are not there who do I talk to?

I skyped with the Woodster yesterday and he's still in Germany. Will be for quite a while yet.
I have spoken with Zach and he is 100% up to speed with the S10 gig..

No problem with replicating the WASPmobile colors. Pay WWW for the wheelz and send copyright infringement payment to ME....

Greg.

I laser cut quite a number of them but will have to check at Motorradgarage to see if there are any left. Will report back.

Don't worry, I won't blame you for any failures, especially when this bike is about 10K less than a BMW here. That is a tonne of final drives before it gets stupid.

Besides, its a Yamaha, how could it not be bullet proof and indestructable all at the same time.

Hi Greg ... worked a bit today and came with a side stand extension that looks nice ... it works for 'old S10's with 19-17' and 'new 21-18' because it is adjustable ... I still use the short links on my rear suspension and my seat is on the low position




Next step is something similar for the double stand.
Cheers,
Roberto

Thumb Front fork protectors

Gadday wasp-man, just found this new thread . please to see you back in the "Beast" season where it belongs....All creds to you on all the mods on your s10, they are all well researched and applied. It was your work in this area that has sent myself down the 21' front wheel route. I was wondering when/if you you were going to put your front fork protectors into production?????? because when you do, i would dearly like to buy a pair.keep up the great work and thankyou for openly sharing all of your hard work.not many people are prepared to do that without making money from it.

Greg, your bike looks fantastic. Also, thanks for your products - I'm extremely happy with my decals and especially the windshield adjuster.

New DODO duck beack fender

After a lot of work cutting and reshaping a high fender from other bike I came up with a satisfactory 'DODO duck beak high fender' ... it works fine with my half low fender with Woody's 21" wheel ...
Cheers,
Roberto

Hi Graham ... sometimes you have to work double to get things as they should be ... because of the OEM guard going upwards, any fender will collide with it plus the inner plastics of the right and left protection ... so to get rid of the upper OEM guard I'm looking at the AltRider which could be fitted with the lower OEM although they say NOT compatible ... stay tuned for more Franken Mods ... lol
