    Simple Electrical Question (I Think!) from an Electrical Dumbo

    I have just changed my Super Tenere for a later model. As part of the deal they transferred all my farkles from my old bike to new. At present I have Givi S310 halogen spots mounted on my crash bars which were transferred to the new bike. They have now been on 4 Super Tens and about 80k...

    My New S10

    As I said in a previous thread, it was with a heavy heart that I let my trusty Super Ten go as a trade in. She was a 2015 and had covered a reliable 47000m I'd been thinking about it for a while and the deciding factors were;- 1 She needed about £1000 spending on her.........service inc...

    Coil Stick

    My bike is due it's 48k service At the last service I was warned by the mechanic that one stick was starting to corrode and it might be better to replace it. The price of a 'genuine Yamaha part' is £170 but I'm certain that they are not produced by Yamaha. Does anyone know who actually...

    Can anyone recommend a good independent mechanic in NW England?

    When my S10 was under manufacturer's warranty I used local Yamaha dealers for a service and to say that I was not impressed by the standard of workmanship is a vast understatement! In 2017 I was recommended an independent mechanic near Bolton and he was absolutely fantastic. Fastidious in his...

    UK Dealer Response to Mileage Rant

    I think this really highlights a problem in the UK market. My S10 was first registered in 2015 and today I booked it in for the front brake switch to be replaced when the current Corvid lockdown ends. I was asked for my mileage and replied '46' 'Is that 46 thousand?' he replied When I...

    What is a high mileage for a Super Tenere?

    Had my bike for almost 5 years now and it's showing just under 42000m. I really like the bike and it has never let me down and is well maintained but I'm wondering if it's worth trading to a 1 year old bike with less than 6k under its wheels that I've seen. I know that they are a lot of...
