Can anyone tell me if converting my Tens forks to Yamaha WR450F or KTM 640 Adventure with custom machined clamps would have any major impacts on braking since i would be sacrificing my brembo twin discs for one caliper..

Hey Barney, that is the original screen that I cut down (angle grinder to get the basic shape, then Dremel, then sand-paper).

Hi Sam, yes, I found that they were well up to the job - they coped with this





I intend to get a set for my Super Tenere so that I can use the panniers on both bikes.

I went for the Motosports as they were the narrowest that I could find - each one is only 17cm wide.

They have survived a few adventures now!

Yamaha xt660z forks swap, YZ USD - update

The new forks are already fit on my Tenere. I using Yz 450 2006 forks, (46mm top, 49mm bottom) triple clamp was from was from WR 450 2005. The size was 44mm / 48mm and I machined it 1mm top and 0.5mm bottom to be able to put the forks in. I using the original Yamaha steering stem. Bolt it without problem, only on the top clamp i have to put 1mm spacer between the stem and the clamp(the original stem was top 25mm, the new is top 23mm. The front wheel is from YZ 450.I also changed the handle bars with 28mm. What is left is oversize brake disk 270mm. I did today a proper test.
I need to change the springs with stiffer, It's ok the way it is now but I want to make a proper sag .I already ordered 0.52 this is the stiffest I can get. The rear shock is so soft(compare to the front) and lift it with new bones (35 mm) The YZ front forks are 40 mm longer than the stock. I should be ok with the new bones.

Importing XT660 Tenere into the US

Hi guys, first post. I live in Texas and of course we don't have the XT660 Tenere in the states. But just over the boarder in Mexico they sell them. Dose anyone have any experience bringing one in? Buying it and getting it into the us is no problem. i assume getting it registered and insured is were I'm sure ill run into some trouble. Any ideas?
