    Black Hills Yamaha Super Tenere Rendezvous July 22nd - 25th, 2021 - Custer Crazy Horse Campground, Custer SD

    I’ll wash it off good and check to see if I can find a crack somewhere. I figure that makes more since. No marks on the skid plate in that area but still maybe the issue. Thanks for that thought.

    I sure hope so. I don’t know what I could have down to damage the pump. I guess pump failure is not common on the s10? Still learning what I need to mindful of on the bike

    Black Hills Yamaha Super Tenere Rendezvous July 22nd - 25th, 2021 - Custer Crazy Horse Campground, Custer SD

    no idea why it failed. I pulled into monarch pass and noticed antifreeze down the side of the bike coming from the pump area and my pant leg was soaked. I had been riding off pavement before and the temps got up to 225. Now I’m not sure it it wasn’t leaking then causing the temps to rise. I...

The only real wear item is the latch, the turn Handle on it is worn and vibrates. I put black rtv on it to stop the rattle and...

    Scratches on matte paint?

    that’s one issue with flat paint. You can’t buff it out, even sanding it out with not work, cause it will be a different look though still flat. Touch up paint could help depending on how picky you are, but you can’t blend it so it will be noticed. Talking with my dealer on a flat black bike I...

    Scratches on matte paint?

    I got mine to keep from sliding when I didn’t want to and to help hold my knee in place when pushing it into the tank. That also keeps me from scratching the paint when I ride in that manner which is a lot :)
