    Givi Airflow vs Stock Screen

    OK, so this may be a little late in coming to the party, but I have literally just found this on YouTube. It is a direct comparison between a Givi Airflow screen and the stock Yamaha Super Tenere screen and I thought it may be of interest to anyone thinking of changing the stock screen.

    Bimota maybe?

    SuperTen, to change or not to change?

    Well I have had my 2017 SuperTen for 2 years now and I have done a few epic trips on it, but.......! I guess it all started when I saw the new BMW F900XR. I booked a test ride but along came Corvid-19 and the Lockdown and I never got my test ride. During Lockdown I started thinking, always a...

    Cut-down screen anyone?

    I have tried the stock SuperTen screen in each of it’s positions, I have added a Laminar Lip and most recently, I have removed the Laminar Lip and fitted one of those Chinese knock-off adjustable spoilers to the top of my stock screen. So far, the best solution has been the Chinese knock-off...

    Modes, S and T, my thoughts.

    Well, I am 1000 miles into my first big trip on my (new to me), Super Ten, so that’s halfway for this trip around Holland, Germany and a little bit of Poland. When I bought my Super Ten two months ago, I tried the S and T modes and decided that I preferred the S mode. However, on the second day...

    Recommendation screen to me

    I had a Givi Airflow on my Versys 1000, pretty effective but looked like it had been hit with an ugly stick and before that, I fitted a Vstream to the ST1300 that I owned back then, so good quality and again, pretty effective. So my loyalty is split between these with the Vstream leading on...

    Canectomy anyone?

    When I owned my Buell Ulysses, a popular mod was was opening up the exhaust can, removing the yards of tubing inside and replacing with a few staggered plate baffles. As there appears to be a few used end cans around, I was wondering if anyone has performed a “canectomy” on a Super Ten end can...

Has Yamaha used some kind of glue or locktite to retain the weights? I am struggling to remove them and to be...

    Was it you?

    I was in Aberystwyth on Wednesday, 15th. August when I spotted my very first Super Ten in the wild since buying my own bike. It was a white one and it was with another bike, (maybe a Triumph?), but whatever, it was the first Super Ten I have seen since joining this rather exclusive club!
