I marked the disk with a marking pen when it is rotating and you can clearly see the disk is warped.
I lubricated the calliper pins with calliper pin grease when I fitted new pads but I have the same issue.
So I thought I had warped the disk somehow....so I fitted a new disk from EBC, and the calliper still has movement approximately 1 to 2 mm, longitudinally along the pins.
Perhaps the hub that the disk bolts on to is not quite 100% true thus this is seen in the movement of the disk.
The bearings are OK.
Can someone out there who has a centre stand, start the bike and select 1st gear then check if their rear calliper is doing the same?
Hi!

I thought that you guys might enjoy this video from a trip that the Israeli Tenere Club had in the desert.
Cheers.

Question Tenere shock rebuild?

Hello, anyone keen to replace oil in rear shock?
What oil to use? Where to get it?
Anyone did it here? Got some pics maybe?

Paying someone to service it, gets quite expensive, and it does not look too hard doing it on my own.
Here is a link, but would need more exact info for Tenere specifically, to make it right.

Any help would be usefull.

Exhaust

Hello !

I've decided to change the stock exhaust on my Tenere.
Which one would you choose between the Akrapovic 2 in 1 carbonium and OTR 2 in 1 ?
I can't figure out if there's any difference in terms of output power / torque.
Thank you !

Can't comment on differences but have you considered MTC exhausts? They make a nice looking/sounding titanium oval can.

The stainless steel one is about 2200g. Carbon and Ti ones will be lighter.
