Yeah that’s what they think when we do mods in their bikes.

In a recent World Crosser test I was there with my slightly moded bike, most of the Spanish Yamaha team where looking my bike, curious, asking about the differences I’ve fount between the ST and the GSA, etc.… but his Japanese boss didn’t show any interest at all, the only thing he said in all this time was: the GS are not good for off road several times: hermetic.
He must be an ADV member. You would think he would have read about many saying
the same thing about the S10.

Well if you say that for me… you’ll be surprise about my little budget for these modifications.
All the big farkles: exhaust, skid plate, suspension, decals, etc. where in exchange of helping in the development and test it, I am very grateful to them but this is an usual deal with the manufacturers for new products. Lot of the rest: Touratech, Galfer, Giant Loop, the bike and few other stuff where free or bought in good conditions as a sponsors of our Transibérica trip in exchange of the publicity we gave them (quite popular trip in Spain with a good press coverage).
The rest of modifications where made for myself or with a big help to my Yamaha dealer witch he’s enjoying the transformation nearly as me. I’m very grateful to him, a great guy with a non common enthusiasm for his work.
So… sorry but don’t expect lot of income coming from Spain, we are in an economic disaster…

I finished my improved (hope) mudguard with some waterproof connectors for the rear lights.
The two (annoying) boxes are for the blinkers and they are fixed with a very strong velcro.

I was looking to protect the rear suspension reservoir. It was exposed to water, mud and eventually rocks from the rear wheel.
Finally I did a mudguard. Then I did something similar in the other side so the pillion don't have so much water and mud from the wheel (I hope).
Waiting for rain to try it!!. Where I live is one of the driest summers from the last years.

Also I relocate the brake fluid bottle back to a more accessible place. In its original situation the bottle was behind the shock and there was difficult to access and to see the level.

In English, the "can" is called a 'reservoir'.

Thanks!
The manufacturer is working in the exhaust so, when finished the look and sound could be a little different. Here you are:

This is the sound with the dbkiller

And this is without

I'm just having the new skid plate prototype, nearly ready to production:

The boxes caught my eye. I you are getting 12V or greater at the turn signals with them on, then those boxes are no more than load resistors. If that is in fact the case, you can replace the OEM flasher with a solid-state flasher which will enable you to totally bypass/eliminate the 'must be used' boxes.

Well... that’s the first ting I tried, I connect the blinkers without the MUST BE USED boxes and I understood why there is this advice: the blinkers where ruined.
So I recommend you if you read a MUST BE USED advice: USE THEM
