Hacking a 2010 1200 Super Tenere
 
G'day all I am picking up a new Yamaha Super Tenere in the next week or two and I am seriously thinking of throwing a chair on it. I was wondering from our European friends on here if they have seen one done yet ? I believe this may be a first here in Oztralia if I do if not the world. Anyone got some photos to share ?

Hi Brendan, sounds like a great plan. What area are you from?

That would be something to see. Keep us posted if you find anything, or when you do your own.

G'day Dave I'm in Reservoir - Melb. I hope to have it at the beer night next month if you wanna have a look at the beast.

Great. I'll bring my V Strom outfit so you can see the nightmare that is sub frames for bikes with no frames. :eek1

I'd love to put a chair on a new Tenere. I checked one out recently and it would be a great bike to put one on but I did see some issues. The frame is way too light for a chair. Ok you can put a sub frame on it but the rear end would break fairly quickly plus you would have to get rid of that bloody great awful exhaust, having said that if one came up as a wreck I wouldn't hesitate to put a chair on it. One can always get around those issues.

If you decide to do it make sure you take plenty of photo's and post them here.

Just my 2 cents worth.

Don't worry guys I will hopefully putting up plenty of photos when I start so everybody can see. I will probably be getting Phil Duffy to be do most of the work as he has come highly recommend to me by a few people.
I will have to agree 3legs that there is not much in the way of mounting points and the subframe is a bit of a worry and the big lardy muffler will be replaced in due time first.

Does yours have a centre stand Norwest?
I left mine on but it would be a lot simpler without. :eek1 Will be watching.

I think till today no single of the big Tenere has been modified in Germany. I guess, the Europeans prefer the BMW GS-models, because most dealers have leading links, subframes and 15"-wheels in stock and it is cheaper to built a GS than the Yamaha.
But Im really interested in your idea.
