That is bullshit.
Unless it became a calzone on the way home, it was a wasted motorcycle trip.
I spend to much on the motorcycle...Little Caesar's is all I can afford.

It ain't about cheap pizza but the quality of the ride!
Thanks Sheldon! But I tried that on Sunday and none of the fuses were blown.
Thanks! I tried that tonight and it didn't work.
Thanks!I checked the fuses again tonight.
P.S. I guess I'm just going to have to pay Yamaha to fix this or go aftermarket since I bought the bike used with 700 miles on it already out of warranty.
On my way to work yesterday I was bored and decided to "stretch the legs" on the old girl. When I got to 6th gear (still hard accelerating +/- 98mph) the check engine light came on and I had no throttle. It down shifted fine and when I stopped it was idling fine. When I got stopped I also tried the throttle again and nothing. I shut the bike down turned it back on and it's like nothing ever happened. No check engine light, throttle is fine.
What the hell happened?! Bike is a 2012 with about 20k miles. Is something going bad?
No such thing as a wasted motorcycle trip.
First is to check to see if it threw a code, and what that code says. There are threads here on how to see them.
some info on tire wear if anyone is interested. follow up on my fan sensor taking a shit. i appreciate all the info people gave about trouble shooting but i just added an aftermarket fan sensor that slips the probe between the fins wired to a switched lead. as for crash bar info, my bike has been end over end down the road on 2 separate occasions, dropped too many times to count and enough low sides to grind the crashbars flat all over and i have to say i think rumbux is the best. no motor damage. both side panels come out without removing.
That chart is very interesting.
Like it never happened...
Looks good! What kind of luggage racks do you have?
Thanks. I'm running Pelican Storm im2600 cases, on Givi quick-detach racks, and SW Motech adapters.
How did you deal with the brake line over the original mud guard ? It is not obvious from this photo.
I ran the stock one for awhile, but knobbies ended up shredding two different lines. I'm running a braided line there now, but it's longer, so I can tie it up out of the way easier. I'd like to use something similar to the Wasp setup, eventually, but haven't sourced/made all of the parts yet. The longer braided line has been on there for over two years, and still working, so it hasn't motivated me to change yet.
I like that high fender Hacked, the stock one is just a little to close to the tire for me. Although is does keep some of the Spoge off the bike in wet conditions.
I have a new to me S10 and will be moving a bunch of farkels over from my FJR. First step is to install the Fuzeblock - not much room under the seat but I've seen folks install them under right side cover near battery so I'll look to see if it will fit there. A fused pigtail for charging should be straightforward. GPS wiring and a USB on the handlebar for powering the phone in a X cradle will take some ciphering to see where best to route the wires. Will likely run some extra wires with those for future inexpensive aux lighting. Last item will be a powerlet socket for my heated gear. I'll be exploring to see where best to mount that - I like to have it on the left side up above my knee, I'll get in and see what might work but suggestions are welcome.
All part of getting to know the bike!
^^^ I will also be looking for a place to mount a BMW/ Bosch socket for heated gear.
I am thinking of of the left side crash bar. I do not wish to make holes in the fairing but might do that near the radiator fan.
So, if you have pix of your install, I would like to see them. Thanks.
Oh I've never had an issue with the road race fender set up.
It's been a year next month since I've been back on this bike. Keep saying I have one more Alaska ride
in me so I hang on to it.
In the mean time I've found religion and am working on walking on water.
Water? Sounds like you're still full of piss and vinegar!
