Re: Attention Super Ten owners

I notice that the Yamaha worksheet that I attached does not request them to check the spokes or change the final drive oil but have just checked the Service manual and it is definely a requirement in the manual.

Must check the spoke tension in the morning.

Another question for the dealer.

Re: Attention Super Ten owners

Just had my bike serviced by Alan Duffus at Kirkcaldy at 4,000 miles, but before that it did not seem to use any oil. It would probably burn more oil in sport mode at higher speeds, I only use sport mode if there is a long que of cars with someone at front doing 40 MPH in a 60 MPH zone and you have ...

Re: Attention Super Ten owners

Recall attached, Yamaha state max 5 Kilos in top box or probably 10 Kilos on tail rack max allowed loading.
Suspect the problem arose from someone overloading the tail rack.

Sub frame looks pretty strong to me.

Re: Attention Super Ten owners

Have checked my fork seals, no signs of any weeping.

Keep the sliding chrome stanctions clean or as I think AfricaJim mentioned, dust or grit on those sliding stanctions can damage the fork seals.

Re: Attention Super Ten owners

You would assume so. My bike is January 2011 and have inspected under the tank as part of the standard winter check list, definetly no leaks or corrosion. Have attached copy of the Yamaha worksheet for the super Ten (snow paked out my data). You notice that it requests them to check the fuel lines b...

Re: Attention Super Ten owners

Not sure if it applies to the UK models.
All the Super Tens are made in Japan and the tank would be fitted before any minor changes to comply with individual countries.

I get the feeling that the recall system is not so rigorosly enforced in this country.

Attention Super Ten owners

Just noticed this recall on the internet, must draw it to the attention of my local dealer. Just shows you the importance of doing your under tank inspections.

Re: Fridge freezer Help

I had a funny fault with my Bosch fridge, after a power cut the kitchen got very cold. When the power came back on the fridge did not seem to be working. On reading the manual it says that it stops working below a certain temperature! Very strange, presumably to prevent freezing items in the fridge.

Re: Bike servicing.

As said before I was trying to buy a service manual for the super Ten. Dealer could not supply so contacted Yamaha, look at the repy below. Will look up the Europen directive and load the missile launcher. I think that it was voltswagan that got fined millions for this type of action. Hello Mr Leask...

Re: Bike servicing.

As with most of the other guys, I get the local dealer to service the bike if it is still in warranty, as a bonus they will do any fuel map updates, etc. Then I do my own servicing, but you must have a copy of the service manual, preferably electronic. I also buy a paper copy of the sevice manual in...
