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.

Tenere rider to be :D

Hi Guys, I've been reading through this thread for the last few hours and found some of the posts very informative. Thank you all for 246 pages of info :) Got fair idea what wanna install on my new bike to make it more cut for me!
I'm after test ride on XT660Z Tenere today and just decided to sell my trustworthy Vstrom in favour of brand new 10 so we can call this day a conception day :)

Have few Q's if someone finds time to answer, would really appreciate to hear from you- more experienced colleagues.

1. I often do long day trips on my Vee like 600-700km (350-450miles) how do you cope with vibrations after a day like that, would fingers be numb or other issues or is it a matter of getting used to for most of you? (didn't have excess vibes on Vee)
2. Never ever had nobblies on my bike but would love to go to trails for fun on my new Ten so consider them 'must have', how is it ride with them on asphalt? Doable? Pleasant? Slippery in dry/wet? (I don't mean going mad fast just trips and commuting to work as usual)
3. Does navi shake if installed on top of this dedicated bar by the front screen? Looks like it would to me (I have Garmin Zumo 350) but maybe it's my impression only?
4. I really like the idea of high offroad front mudguard like some of you installed instead of stock one. I think it looks really sharp. As there is nothing to cover the engine/radiator etc. from gravel and rocks do you find it safe for the bike, any issues experienced?
5. Read on some of the first pages about oil dripping from brand new bikes with mileage less than 50miles due to crappy rubber seal on oil cap, did yamaha resolve this problem?
6. Some of you use semi- others fully- synthetic oil, does it make any difference for the bike, does it make gearbox action smoother maybe or improoves something else?
7. What's the highest confirmed mileage you're aware of? (out of curiosity) Highest indicated in this thread belongs to 'dallastx' 90kkm (60k miles)
8. One of my dearest aftermarket accessories installed on Vee is Scottoiler it's brought my chain maintenance down to zero. Noone here ever mentioned Scott, don't you use it? I find it brilliant!
9. When installed Akrapovic slip on (for weight loss and sound) and K&N (for lifeime job, not for performance) on Vee didn't have to change maps nor install PC and bike still run happier (more torque noticed, going on revs freely). Would I have to provide such mods on Ten if installed aftermarket can and filter?
10. This one might be silly :) but why to get ABS have to go for shortened suspention travel version when BMW F800GS has one and even higher suspention?

(sorry if making mystakes, english isn't my first language)
