    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.

    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

    Hey guys
    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?
    Cheers

    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.

    Hi Sidm,

    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

    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.

    Thought the new one was supposed to reduce vibration or something?

    Some Gen Is vibrate at low revs, some more than others. Apparently its related to the clutch hub damping, and the Gen IIs got a new type damper. If you have a viby Gen I the new clutch hub supposedly fixes it, but if its not a problem, it doesn't make any difference. Mine is as smooth as a Gen II so I see no point to making the 'upgrade', especially at the full price. If I'd got one for $50 or whatever they went for initially then I might have got one anyway.
