The stock bolt you have to take out for the rear support has threadlock on it so you will need a 5mm hex socket and ratchet - or something of the sort. Or, you could try heating it up to soften the threadlock.

Just a heads up then CottonTop, we had a guy with a similar system where the rear tail piece OEM totally failed with his top box, as his mounting system resided on the OEM piece. At a dualsport rally he hit some frost heaves and pot holes and the whole box flew off the bike. I'm not sure if you go off-road with your Super T, but if you do be aware of this, especially if the box is loaded.
There are some vendors who sell a total replacement tail piece which is made from aluminum. I replaced mine with the Jesse tail piece which bolts directly to the frame of the bike. From there you could use any system such as your Givi mounting bracket. Here is a pic:


Cheers,

Yamaha updated the original rack after a couple failures offroad in SA. Did your friend have this update (the new rack had a steel reinforcement rod in its base)?

Good question. I am not sure about that. I will have to ask.

Just got my ECU back with the 2nd gen update. Bolt on all the shit you want, but if you want your
bike to run like it deserves it the reflash is my #1 farkle recommendation.

I have the updated stock rack with the metal brace and still plan on upgrading. My top box flops around, even empty.

Originally I had mounted an alloy plate to my stock rack. The rack cracked.
I've since moved on to Altrider stuff. I like the cubby hole under the rack for
tire repair kit storage. Sturdy rack too.

+1 on the Altrider rack. I have a Pelican case mounted on mine and it's rock solid. I also have their crash bars.

I think the ECU flash is next!

I upgraded to Givi's SR371 rack so I can run my E45 top box. Quality piece of kit at a very reasonable price.

Agree with the Altrider rack, believe even if I one day would go over a cliff or similar it still would be intact on the back with all the gear. Very, very good rack!

I added a couple of items over the weekend:

Altrider.com's side stand foot and the Pivot Pegs (MK3), both nice addons, especially for my size 12 boot.












I dig the pegs... Did quite a bit of forest service road riding a couple weekends ago. Really wanted a foot peg with a larger surface area and better bite. Anyone else got options?

1. Safety Farkle, Admore Light bar. It does not prevent being rear-ended by a texting driver, but it does express my inner nerd.


2. The Awesome "Cup Holer" (available from JC Whitney Extreme ADV, and select 7-11 stores).
Staying hydrated while World Crossing the Outer Mongolian Desert never looked so cool.


3. nah... no more farkles. I think I will just turn the Super Tenere into a World Crosser Bobber Chopper Old Skool Sled.

Cheapest and easiest mod so far. Couldn't stand the glare of the silver anymore.

Other than my dorky light bar, no other modson my Super Canary.
I don't understand why I am even riding it, the bike is just so horrible without mods.
I heard the Rusty Nail mod to the factory ECU does wonders though...might take a hack saw to the frame and make a bobber out of it.

Just got back from here:
