Exploratory surgery (Phase two). Side panels off.

It,s an easy job to remove the side panels in the field.
Under the seat you will find a single Allen/hex key. This key is to remove the four quarter turn fasteners on the lower right hand side cover. You will also use the key to push in the black plastic fasteners on the inside (near the forks) of the cover before it can be removed.

You can then remove the top part of the right hand side cover.

And this is what it looks like....



The removal of the right hand covers allows full access to all of the vital electrical components including all fuses and battery. I did not specifically look but I am sure the ECU is tucked away somewhere nearby.. The regulator rectifier is located on the inner face (near the forks) on this side.

The left hand (radiator side) cover is a similar process to remove but has no quarter turns, they are all full screws and the top and bottom cover is one piece and can be removed with the same key.

And this is what it looks like.



With the removal of two bolts,The fuel tank on the new Super Tenere can be pivoted backward to allow access to the air filters.

This is what it looks like with the tank pivoted back.
