I fit­ted the of­fi­cial Yamaha quick­shifter (£199.99), which went on in an hour and is ex­actly what the MT-10 de­serves. Once plugged in it took a while to be recog­nised by the MT’S ECU and then, on a test ride, the en­gine warn­ing light came on – and stayed on. The bike went back to Yamaha HQ for in­ves­ti­ga­tion (noth­ing of note was found) and while it was in dock had its clutch plates re­placed and the wob­bly seat in­ves­ti­gated. The clutch is now much smoother but the seat re­mains loose, de­spite hav­ing the miss­ing rub­ber stays re­placed. 00 1 258
