Hi to all!
Last weekend a friend gave me an old set of panniers from an old BMW he had, the panniers were yellow and one of them the lock was broken, of course the mounting rack was not available so I did some homework since saturday and I got them installed and working , I will show you how they end up in my S10. All coments are welcome.

They fitted very well, and I spent about 20 working hours and very little money, they end up usable again.
I like the way it looks.

Regards to all.

I do not know which branch to throw! The other day, in the Tver region, which is 500 km from Moscow, another motorcycle travel took place. Sincere gatherings around the fire, conversations and just relaxation. Well, the realities of Russia, bad roads, that the KTM 790 could not stand it))

First I washed it, kinda.
Wanted to try out my new Foam-Cannon.

This thing really makes a lot of foam!

A quick rinse, and a ride around the neighborhood to dry it off.

Next it was on to Tires!

I used to use Ru-glyde from Napa, but I decided to try "Mounting Paste" this time.
I had an easier time with the stiff tires.

After that I moved on to Oil/Filter and final-drive fluid change.

Everything was going well until I went to remove the fill-plug on the final-drive housing.
The allen-key just rounded out the hole.
I tried the usual stuff like pounding in a torx-bit, and a larger size allen-key, but no-go with that.

I ended up drilling the head off, and using a chisel to break the remaining pieces off and spin it out.

Did not damage the sealing surface.

Luckily I had a few different size 14mm drain plugs in my spares trays.

All back together.
Now it uses a 17mm socket for both plugs.

I have always wondered why Yamaha chose to complicate things a little more by using that goofy Allen key plug, it has never caused me any real trouble but after seeing how you changed yours to a standard bolt head plug I just might do the same thing.

I think they used the allen key style because a bolt such as the hex used if hits something will cause damage to the final drive and/or threads, plug, etc.

I swapped my head lights with LEDs and installed Deftoner's extended caps.
Ran into a problem with left side plug. I see now why that bulb kept cutting out on me. Spliced in a new plug and all is well now.

All in all, it's a nice inexpensive upgrade.

Grate improvement!
I put leds in my bike and I like it very much, did not had the problem as you did.
I like led color light and brightnes much more than the halogen one.
Thanks for sharing

I decided to replace the front tyre and check the Steering head bearings as the steering felt not quite right on my previous ride. No loose play but felt ever so notchy in the straight ahead position on the main stand. Found this . Just passed 10k km and motorcycle bought new in February 2021. I placed the displaced roller, which was stuck to the grease. on the stem for the photo.

Wow! The load in the steering head shouldn't be that big to damage the bearing, what can cause such sitaution? Should had beeng overthight? , as you mention to have the nochy condition will be the advice?

Wow! Now you have me wondering what I'm going to find as my bike also has also developed a heavy notch in the dead ahead position. Parts are on the way as I write. I've changed notched bearings on other bikes before and could not visually tell there was any damage.

I replaced the headstock minus the loose roller and trailered the motorcycle to my dealer. I explained my reason for dismantling the headstock as the motorcycle is in warranty and what I had found. While I was there the headstock was again dismantled and after inspection he thinks that the bearing was damaged when assembling at the factory. New bearings top and bottom are ordered under warranty and so the wait begins.
