    Thaqua,

    been looking at the HDB handguards - any fitment issues on the S10? Which model did you get?

    Hi Trevor ... the HDB handguards are the strongest in the market ... better and sturdier to the other known brands (Acerbis . Barkbusters) but they are meant to be used in Enduro bikes so fitting them to our S10 required buying a fitting from Acerbis to grab the end of the handguard to the handlebar plus a piece of aluminum bar as extension on the left handguard. These handguards came with the wind deflectors in white and black. They are supposed to be attached to the center handlebar fitting also sold by HDB but are 4 inches short.
    Cheers,
    Roberto

    Good to see that you finally received it all Rob.

    I have been thinking about the doubletake mirrors,, what are your thoughts compared to standard?
    Do they vibrate?
    Will they fold right inboard when offroad?
    Offer good vision when lower to your fists?
    Are they the low mounts or high mounts?

    Greg.

    Working on a few things at once Combo.

    I will be getting the Isoboard for pattern making in the next week or so, but have been waiting until I next striped the bike for a clean.
    We were out on Saturday for a great ride through the forest and got nice and dirty, so I thought now is as go a time as any...

    The professional side of life has put the brakes on the fun factor a bit as I have been on some fairly tight deadlines lately (hence the limited posts), but I have just completed one lengthy design job and am about two weeks from the end of design faze and start of proto faze with another. This normally allows a goodly bit of spare time as it's really only supervisory and consulting after design.

    This is the area of the bike I am working on at the moment and will end up doing patterns for both ends at the same time... Not setting myself any time frame at the moment but it is happening.

    Do it once and do it properly I recon.:deal

    You wont have seen this view of an S10 very often because it's actually a bit of messing around to strip to this point

    Greg.

    P.S - All cleaned up like a brand new bike again..:clap

    God I love this machine.

    Not sure that I posted it here Shaggie, but I may be wrong..:freaky

    I did manage to find it over at yamahasupertenere.com and you will find it on this page: http://www.yamahasupertenere.com/index.php?topic=918.msg15867#msg15867
    I didnt go into much detail about the install, but I simply designed the bracket and got it laser cut with a batch of screen adjusters then wired all the lights through a relay (high beam signal triggering the relay) with no switch rather immediately on with high beam.

    Bloody great set of lights..! 2 x road width pattern and super white and bright for about 100/150 meters.

    Greg.

    If I remember correctly you did post it here. Where I not sure but it was when you showed the two lights and liked them so much you installed the third light. I definitely want these for my eventual S10.

    Wasp thank you for this thread. It will make a better S10 for many of us.

    Hi Greg ... it was a long trip from Australia, New Zealand and here in Chile but finally got them ... cheap postal delivery when you have friends across the Big Pond ... the mirrors are with the short arm and if you tighten well the knob they will hold quite stable (rubber covered ball joints) ... remember to ask for Yamaha mirrors for the right hand due to the reverse thread ... they will fold inwards and I carry them quite low, near the handguard, and vision is perfect since you can turn them in all directions with no limitation.
    What I really miss is a STEERING DAMPENER ... went for a ride on Saturday with 10 other S10 invited through the Yamaha dealer, and the selected place for our technical meeting and briefing was an Enduro training course with a steep loose soil and lots of stones on the road up the hill ... my ROC STOMPA is waiting for the development of the base to install it ... made in Australia!!!
    Cheers,
    Roberto

    Hey, Roberto.

    Your Chilean Flag Super Tenere stickers on the headlight fairing could easily work for Texas flags for Texas riders.

    How do we get some? :clap

    Thanks!

    Would this 'fuel deposit' be the rear fuel tank on the Worldcrosser? :evil

    Waiting to iron up some wrinkles on the covers and remember they are hand made ... the fiberglass in gray will be available to be painted by the buyer but no hardware included (they will have to be changed from the originals) ... the carbon lower side covers will be available on demand.
    I covered the exposed forks with a neoprene cover to prevent the fine dust and water making the seals weep ... see Nick Sanders in his fabulous trip ... in the works a carbon cover for the lower end of the forks 'a la Worldcrosser'

    Nice looking panels. Is it possible to see comparison photos of your panels and the stock panels?
