  1. Great review. This is what I use. Ear Plugs | Earplugs | Mighty Plugs EARPLUGSONLINE.COM They’re available on Amazon too. Really comfortable. One “wad” makes two ear plugs and will last for weeks.
  2. If you have a time stamp on the picture and can tell them where you were, they will know exactly which truck it was, who was driving it, and how fast it was going. I would report it.
  3. Welcome to the site, and I’m sure you’ll be able to find the source of the problem with some simple troubleshooting. Check the obvious...fuse, loose connection, bad switch, etc. Once you have them working, you should be able to use them as daytime running lights. Let us know what you find. We’ll help if we can. Just know in advance that the fuses for those lights might not be located in the main fuse box. There are some additional fuses located behind a panel on the right front of the bike. More details can be found with a couple of searches on the site. Duke
  4. A lot has transpired since my last post, but I'll bypass the pointless details and go straight to the pertinent information. I received this email from Chris at pedstop late on Tuesday evening: Hi Darrin Apologies for the lack of communication and delay in the order. We have changed servers and have missed quite a portion of emails sent to the sales@ address without knowing, this also affected our mobile site which we have realised today. Your order is not affected by our closing down statement and we will likely be trading the amount of stock that we have for at least the next 12 months. I’ve attached a screen grab of your order which is still pending with Scorpion, as the product description mentions we don’t hold stock, as an order comes in we order it direct with the manufacturer and then send it once received. Scorpion are in their busiest period at the moment so they are a little slower than normal. We will chase them tomorrow and find out when it will leave. If this is not acceptable please let us know and we get the order stopped before they ship. Again apologies for not seeing your mails and for the panic regarding closing, we are a trustworthy company that has a excellent reputation, this will continue to the end. Regards Chris Then this morning I had another email stating that my part had shipped. I checked with FedEx, and sure enough, the part is on its way with an expected delivery of Monday, May 20th. Presuming that the delivery goes well, all is once again right with the world. Clearly pedstop was experiencing technical problems, and those happen. Also clearly, they honored their word and the part is on its way. I will now humbly retract my previous rants about Adrenalin-pedstop as a vendor. I will also suggest that members watch their website for bargains, especially members in GB. I don't know how much stock they have on hand for our bikes, but I suspect there will be bargains to be found on whatever they have. I'll post an update once I have my exhaust installed, which will likely happen over Memorial Day weekend. Thanks, Duke
  5. Interesting story for sure. I’m actually still surprised that it had that much damage. Guys drown motorcycle engines pretty regularly, and generally get away with pulling the plug to clear the combustion chamber and changing the oil. I’m not saying that the engine doesn’t suffer some damage, but they can usually be made to run. Not that it makes any difference whatsoever, because your engine obviously didn’t like ingesting water. Really a bummer no matter what.
  6. KLRs die? That’s contradictory to everything I’ve read on the internet, so it can’t possibly be true.
  7. Here's a link to a thread on running the Oxfords with the OEM controls. Lots of good information in there as well, including information about the correct connectors to use. And here's a thread on Adventure Riders for the Super Tenere. More good information there that applies to us because the S10 uses the same menus and such to drive the grips. Heated grips. | YamahaSuperTenere.com WWW.YAMAHASUPERTENERE.COM They are $399 MSRP. A 2 hr install by dealer. They are supposed to integrate with the menu rocker switches to operate. I bought a set but have not had them installed...
  8. It’s more fun to ride a slow bike fast than to ride a fast bike slow, so I would choose the smaller displacement and lighter machine. That’s just an opinion based upon where I would spend my money. It’s also based upon my level of ability and experience. You might choose differently, and there is nothing wrong with that.
  9. I’ve requested a refund from pedstop. I’ve also lodged a dispute of the charges with my credit card company. As it turns out, the correct term is dispute, not fraud. Regardless, I hope this gets straightened out soon. Once it does, I’ll have to find a new place to order from.
  10. My ex treated our vehicles like driving dumpsters and our house like the set of hoarders. Two of the reasons she is an ex.
  11. Well crap! A news item on pedstop’s website as of today says they are going out of business. I guess that explains the lack of response and means that I will have to go the fraud route.
  12. I bought my connectors off eBay. They’re the same as the ones on our blinkers. I found the information somewhere on this site. I’ll see if I can find it again. As for the oxfords, you’ll want to do some research. They’re different than the grip heaters I used. I believe that they only have two wires, so you can’t wire them in “double parallel” like I did. Still, you can run the two grips in parallel to reduce the overall resistance. You just might want to do some research to see what the resistance of each grip is so you can calculate the overall resistance before ordering. After thinking about this for a few minutes, I remembered reading about someone installing the Oxfords on a Super Tenere, but they didn’t give details of how they were wired. If I recall correctly, the resistance of each grip was around 3-3.5 ohms, so they should work if connected in parallel. Regardless, do some research and you should be fine.
  13. I appreciate your response, and hearing that others have had good luck with them makes me feel a little better. Still, about the only contact method I haven’t tried is calling them, and that is because work has been hectic lately, and I would have to call them during the busiest part of the day. I’ll guess I’ll give them another day or two before taking action. As far as the fraud claim goes, I think that’s the only way I can get my money back if the vendor won’t respond to me. I tried using the contact form on their website, I emailed them, I tried to contact them through Facebook, and I emailed them again, all with no response. Finally, their website leaves a bit to be desired. I originally tried to order through my phone and failed. Then I tried a couple of times using my computer before finally succeeding. Once my order was in, I tried to validate my mailing address and there is no way to update contact info on their website. If their only method of selling is their website, you would think that they would have a better site.
