Good ride on the Fleurieu peninsula today,
Between Ross and Cressy, Tas; before Xmas.
Ok, just did a test on the ABS fuses and speed sensors
Now I believe different S10 do different things, so YMMV l, mine is a blue/silver 2011 model
Doing the below, one at a time...
Pulling the 7.5A fuse in the right fuse block marked 'ABS' disables the ABS and lights the ABS dash light, it also disables the speedo making it read 0 all the time and it stops both the trip meter and ODO
Interesting enough, put the fuse back in while the engine is running and it all goes back to normal, no turning ignition on and off to do a reset
Pulling the 20A fuse in the left fuse block marked 'ABS SOL' does the same as above.
Disconnecting the rear speed sensor. Kills both the ABS, and traction control and lights both lights, lights the check engine light, kills the speedo/trip/ODO.
Reinstalling the rear speed sensor without turning the ignition off restores the speedo and turns off the check engine light.. You have power off the ignition to reset the ABS and TC, that can be done while riding with the the clutch in or in neutral.
Disconnecting the front is the same as the rear except the Speedo/trip/ODO is operational all the time..
I think I will switch the fuse
I have a toggle switch up on dash to the fuse and just switch it on/off on the move at my own peril, its cuts the speedo and brings all the lights on but I figure it allows my to ride it how I want, and ive had no concerns so far, I'm mostly standing on the dirt, so I cant see the speedo or the lights on dash anyway,
Bergdonk said he used a killswitch button so would easy on the move. His model has a 50 amp fuse so required a relay. My model uses the mini blade fuses , so spade connecters don't push in (then use an in line fuse with the switch).
Been two months off the S10 and need to blow off the cob webs.........Cruisy medium paced black top and following 50/50 terrain ride/s.
1/ Doing a New Year's day ride from Forest Lake - Mt Nebo - Mt Glorious - Fernvale- Forest Lake 0830 start.... My turn working the grave-yard shift and thought I'd do this run to begin a cracker year.
2/ Flowing Wednesday doing Forest lake- Beaudesert- Lions Rd- Kyogle (lunch)-Murwillumbah- Hinze Dam-Beechmont Rd to Canungra-Home. 0730 start.
3/ Following Sunday thinking Forest lake- Boonah- White Swamp Rd-Wallaby Ck Rd- Drake- Rocky Rvr Rd - Tenterfield-Warrick - Home. (BYO lunch by RRR for a swim) 0730 start
#Depending on commitments thinking something Forrest Lake North to Gympie and RTN via over nighter??? Start TBA.

Was good to meet you for the ride Thursday Dave. Marty
Same back to you Marty, enjoyed the company and the ride, hope to get out for another ride soon
Hey guys, ive been running TKC80's on my S10, been reasonably happy with them, any suggestions on something similar, embarking on a 3k journey mid year, mostly dirt, any suggestions on what people are using and getting good klms,
Mitas E07 or E09 or E10
Got about 5k out of E07 R/F and the same out a E07 R, E10 F.
Extremely happy with grip levels on all surfaces
Pirelli Scorpion Rally up front and an E07 up back has become my preferred setup. However I have a set of Motoz Tractionater Adventures to try next. The rears are getting good reviews, the 19" front have only just become available. They look a bit similar to the Rally so I'll find out if they work similar.
i just bought this tenere . I bought in vic and rode it back to Sydney
the tenere didn't miss a beat
could not be happier
Well my S10 now has a switch in series with the ABS solenoid, poxy mini 20 amp blade switch Hytram. Speedo still works OK , traction goes off as well. ABS still operated when I took out the 7.5 amp ABS control.
I have a 2016 SE to me I feel that the rear dose not ride quite as good as it might, my feeling is that the spring is to light I am around 95Kg with all riding gear and my wife 70Kg I find when solo the bike rids better with the suspension set for two up but using this when we get to two up with luggage I have run out of extra settings. It also feels as if there is to much compression dampening even set on the softest setting but then there is to little rebound so I generally run the STANDARD minus 3 setting dose anyone else notes this and have they found a solution or had there SE set up by a suspension specialist and if so who preferably in VIC
Can anyone tell me if there is a fuel filter on a 2010 S10, is it part of the pump, is the pump hard to change?
There is a filter. I got one some time ago to carry it as a spare. Doesn't look hard to change, but not done yet. OTTOMH there isn't a S10 filter available, the one I got was for something else, but fits according to the internet consensus at the time. Can't tell you what it is from ATM as I'm on the road. I expect the stock filter could be cleaned OK too, perhaps with an ultrasonic cleaner.
Haven't changed one myself but as I recall, it's integrated into the fuel pump assembly. To remove the pump (again from memory of what I've read) - drain the tank, hinge it up from the front and undo the retaining bolts that hold the pump inside the tank. As I understand it, it's not too difficult to do.
Here's a pic from the service manual
Thanks for the info guys, much appreciated
S10 40K service.
Ok so the 40K service which includes checking the valves is closing in on me.
Any idea from inmates on the time it takes for a dealer to do this and possible costs?
Dunno, I'll be doing my 40k service soon too, including a new CCT so will have a better idea then. A bit time consuming to do it right I suspect, especially if the valves need adjusting.
