I cant see the air inside the tire yet, you could probably go at least another 6 miles, just kidding. What tires are you getting, I am saving up for a set of Mitas e07 dakars.

New rear brake pads and a rear brake fluid flush. I literally could not imagine life without speed bleeders. Old pads had 12k on them and 1.5mm of pad left. I like to change between 1-2mm. The factory min is 0.8mm for the rear but that makes me nervous.

Spark plugs and air filter at 6k? Seems a bit early.

I wish some zealous mechanic lived around the corner from me, I could learn to do much more than I can....or pay him :)
how about replacing the plugs and the air filter at 25 K miles ? Is it too late or fine?

Every year someone starts this rumor. Every. Year.
Just relaying what I was told, I've seen the rumours come up on here over the years also - but with emissions it's time (in the EU/UK anyway) is now up, excluding a stay of execution on the emissions regs due to manufacturing issues arising from corona anyway.. I find zero joy in the news of it being discontinued - I love the bike and of course I'm hoping the S10 gets an overhaul in the same form, e.g. big twin 'proper' adv bike & not a soft commuter on stilts.

I’m hoping to get a bit of protection to the dash area, but I may wind up with no screen as you have done. I don’t like the look of the bike without a fairing and the brackets sticking out.
Oh me either. But i dont want to cut the fairing stays off either. I am so used to it now. Function >> form for me.

I tried a number of prototypes from aluminum and none were able to keep the air calm around my head, so naked it is!

Wrapped up a two part project. Installed new tires Scorpion Trail II to replace Battlax A41. And did a dump and fill of fork oil (removed stock oil at 17500 miles), replaced with Bel Ray 5W.

Test rides completed with a few different settings, including naked.
Definitely better, but I may try different combinations on the positioning with the Madstad bracket.
Naked was great up to about 65-70 mph. Neck strain stared above that.
I’m 6’4” and riding with a Schuberth C3 helmet on this test.

Also bought some synthetic 75-90 gear oil for the final drive.

Looks great.

I agree on neck strain above 75mph with the naked configuration. I keep it under 75 anyway most of the time to keep from getting tickets.
I would prefer to run under 75, but in the section of I-95 near me I'd get run over. Three lanes of craziness in each direction. I'm not a fan of the big slab rides anyway.

I'll keep playing with the screen a bit, and may take another inch or two off later. I got the buffeting hitting around my neck area now, but it's not like a rivet gun on my helmet anymore.

Installed Anthony's ECU flash, Nav/windshield anti vibration brackets purchased form ETSY from Canada. Now I just have to wait to get fully recovered from knee surgery 3 weeks ago.... Miss riding my S10 and I can't wait find out what's it's like with the flash...
