    I think the dirt dobber did your fan in. Good thing you were watching out with the temperature.

    Hahahah, yeah, the screen name doesn't really apply anymore. :D

    As for the temp gauge, luckily that's all I ever have it set on. Otherwise it might've got hot enough to puke fluids.

    It's not like the thing sits. It gets ridden damn near every day, so the little bugger must've worked overtime one night!

    That's because you let the magic smoke out. Any electrician will tell you once the magic smoke comes out, it's all over.

    Replacement smoke is available, although Pommy and not Jap, but should work OK.

    Yamaha has been doing those for a while. Very cool, I have an original R1 stashed away somewhere. Need to go back and look and see what they have done lately.

    That's definately the most important part. We owe it to humanity to help if it's within our power....

    Has anyone here with zero off-road experience prior to owning an S10 taken it off road? Was it an exercise in futility? Is there any hope of being a half way proficient off-road rider without starting on something smaller first?

    I have 25 years of street riding experience, but have never done anything more treacherous than a gravel road.

    I strongly recommend you get a small DP to develop your offroad skills. Much more fun and cheaper than learning on the S10.

    In true off-road conditions, the S10 will make an expert feel like a beginner. Respect the big girl 'off-road'.
