    Does anyone have a lead on a speedo drive? Part No 3LD-25190-00-00

    Alternatively, if I could use a 3-tab washer from another model.

    All 3 tabs on the washer that engages the wheel are broken

    Sadly I don't see your pictures :(
    On ebay.de there are a lot of spares for the xtz750 and CMSNL also has a lot of (NOS) stuff.

    Reattached pictures through ADV Rider.

    What is a good place to connect 12v accessories, like heated grips or USB port?

    Hello guys
    Long time did not post here anything.
    I would like to upgrade my bike rear shock, actually I am already upgraded it for motocross YZ450 one, but it is bit softer side. all adjustments are on maximum settings.
    To everybody who wants to know how i did it, long story short I am adopted it, cut out bladder reservoir and made it remote it was not easy task.
    Time to overhaul it, and I think to replace it. There is some options.
    1. Öhlin which is on ebay price is around 650euros
    2. Bitubo ~500euros
    3. HyperPro ~500euros
    4. YSS about 350
    Maybe someone recommends something?
    First Is it Öhlins really worth it? YSS allmost twice less. I can spend ~500 but more seems bit overkill for such old tech bike

    I've bought a second hand WP, so cannot help you with what to buy, but 650e for an Öhlins sounds cheap.

    The price for the total set was 965 australian dollar, with shipping and an extra set of decals. The panels are not the same quality as original, but they are nice and very usable. For the price you can't beat them (unless you're a painter and you paint for cheap ;) ).

    Hi all. I am new here, let me introduce myself, Eelco. Bought a '94 Super Tenere recently with 45.000 km (apparently). It is wrapped by the previous owner in Green Metallic. Quite a decent job. I wanted to completely make the S10 a 'sonauto' look but after inquiring after taking the current wrap off and putting the new on I thought it would be a bit of a big investment. I did order the decal set (decalmoto) and will just realize an 'inspired' green version of it. I do not even dare to say here but I do not have a motorcycle license yet. I have done 2 of the 3 exams of the Dutch license systems and still need to do the exam which is a painful process now due to Covid and will first happen in feb of next year. But love the bike already and are totally in love with the design and seating position (no big experience here of course, only rode a Honda CB 650 X for practice and a friends harley in the US once.) Here is a pic of the bike and the photoshopped version that would ressemble it with the color green as base color. I never gotten my license, owned shitload of cars, lost loads of money on them but loved that too. Motorcycles are more dynamic and more fun at lower pricepoint I hope and give me a new interest in which I can totally submerge myself :-). I am 47 years old btw.

    Hey Eelco,
    That is one shiny S10. A licence is only necessary if you are caught!

    Hi All,

    I wanted to upgrade my S10's brakes but I didn't like the 'standard' aftermarket solution. A little pricey and I wanted floating rotors with that diameter so I needed something else.
    I went for a set of slightly used GSX-R rotors with a custom laser cut center part and aftermarket bobbins. Instead of using an extender for the caliper holder I designed a new holder and had it laser cut, too.
    Here is a test fit of the new setup. It looks promising. If you want to give it a shot, dxf files are available.
    Cost so far:
    - discs: 50 EUR shipped (ebay-kleinanzeige, GSX-R600, 310 mm)
    - bobbins: 78 USD shipped for 20 pcs. (ebay)
    - material is stainless steel, cutting was free :) (otherwise an hour of machine-time costs around 200 EUR)

    I saw once xtz 750 with breaking discs from Tdm900 and custom adaptors for XTZ calipers.

    The owner was very happy with it.
    Very comfortable to use with one finger and can produce stoppies to.

    Hi all - considering an XTZ 750 and wondering if its suitable for me? Mostly for day trips in the mountains with the Mrs on the back. Want something road oriented so considering swapping the front rim for a 19"? Has anyone done this? How good is the S10 on roads? Really not bothered about going offroad at all, but want the upright seating position of an ADV.

    I live in Spain, see some for around E3,500 for a nice bike, E2,500 for a bit of a rotter. But they all have tons of KM because they get daily driven. 60k plus km. How long do the engines last? I'm worried that maintainance will be crazy expensive, is this going to slowly bleed my bank account dry? Should I be a boring lil knob and buy a Suzuki GS500 instead? Please say no... Please don't make me do that...
