Please share what spring and shims RT supplied for you Milechaser.
Not the case. Check the other forum for several threads if you need more info.
Yes. I’ve had an ES re-valved and rebuilt by Race Tech.
I already own one.
Thanks for confirmation that it is doable
Rocky Mountain ATV (ES shock) US $1,248.79 Find it under the 2015 model, rear arm suspension.
Thanks. Mine is a 2014, but price is still only 1360.00. Can’t believe there is such a price diff from US to Canada, 3100.00. Even with exchange on the money it is still well over 1000.00 diff.
Just picking nits, because the Super 10 is a great bike, but why do over 20 fasteners have to be removed to access the air filter ?
Yup, luckily it's only once every 25000 miles. I just time mine with the valve inspection and spark plug change.
I change my filter more than once every 25,000 miles. Is that what the manual says?
Yes, same as the valve checks unless you ride in dusty conditions.
I posted this over a year ago but worth posting again. This is less than 15k miles. I live in Wisconsin.
Yamaha recommends changing the stock filter at 24k miles unless you are riding in unusually wet or dusty areas. I admit I've been in both but didn't expect it to be this dirty. Glad I checked it. Guess I'll change it every year. Trust me I don't live on a dirt road! At least check before 24k.
At 26,000 mile valve check on my 2012, the first air filter change was just what I expected, it wasn't dirty. Here in Colorado in my opinion more dust than average, so for most guys 26,000 miles is plenty often enough. I've pretty much adopted 30,000 mile change interval on everything, and even that is way early looking at the old filter, but since the Yamaha has 26,000 mile valve check, change it then.
Evening Riders, funny , , I was under the tank today tinker with adjusting throttle cables which was unnecessary. So I decide to investigate the air filter.
Almost 8400 miles. Had some minor blackening, nothing critical. I'll change it at 12k miles maybe. Also gave it the casual inspection , fluids, tire pressure etc. Noticed both original tires had some minor cracking over their entire carcass. Minor.
These are Metzeler Torrance exp,
born on 04/10 and 35/10.
It's an 012 model. 8+yrs old w/ 8400 miles. Change them out? Or ride on for another year? Thanks for your thoughts and ride safe everyone. G.
I ride mostly gravel roads on my S10. I finally decided to clean the filters at 40,000 kms, although not really needed. The Oz standard twin foam Uni Filters. It does seem to pick up clean air, not like my other bikes.
Look to see where they were made. I think they're pre-junk Chinese Tourance Crap in 2010.
If they're Chinese, remove them. They were garbage when new.
Nearly a decade old and cracking, change them ASAP.
Please do not install Tourance tires on your bike. The new ones are pretty terrible on dry, and like grease on wet.
If you're mostly street riding, the new Conti Trail Attack 3 are very good.
Thanks for the replies everyone.
I will be using Shinko 705's when doing the swap.
I had unbelievably good success with them on my previous ADV bike (Suzuki Vstrom) and the budget loves them. A pair from Rocky Mountain ATV =$180+ change.
No Brainer to me . Ride safe, G.
I'm looking to change my seating position on my 2013 Tenner. I did the seat bumper mod which helped a little but i'd still like to get it lower in the back. IMO the bike has a riding position that feels more like being on top of the bike and not in it. Any advice on which seat would help accomplish that?
