Thanks for the responses. OK, the Barkbusters are the BHG1 which on the clutch side at least fits. As I mentioned before the throttle side is a bit different and the photo below will hopefully shed some light on my predicament. (Mounting kit is the BSD STD).

looks like the fitting/ nut (where the bolt fits in) needs to come more out/ side the handlebar...
might move more freely..

Throttle counter weight

Thanks Patrick,

Are you suggesting that it may have been pushed in a little too far. I have actually put the original screw in there and then grabbed it with a pair of long nose pliers and then taps the pliers to see if it comes out. Noting so far. Throttle moves around pretty freely. Just like to confirm that the threaded section in the center should come out.

BTW, does anyone know where we can get hold of a workshop manual for these babies. They seem to be a rare as hens teeth.

Thanks again

Cooky

there is a German manual available.. aber ich weiB nicht ob du Deutsch sprechst..

(google translate?)

maybe the bolt pulls the sides of the bracket (protector ) too far against the throttle?

Hi Cooky

I do have a pdf copy for a earlier model tenere, I think 91 to 95
I have not had a chance to print and read in detail to see how much different it is, but I have been told the it was mostly body work differences and that most of the mechanical is the same.
I down loaded the pdf from a link
http://www.scribd.com/doc/27189022/S...aha-Tenere-3YF
it is about 440mb
I have a few other files that I can email to you if you like, e.g. parts catalogue, owners manual
Damo

P.S. Dingaling posted this link for me on the Oz/Kiwi Tenere Owners website under the Aust forum. Some of the others a friend downloaded for me

Workshop Manual

Thanks Damo,

I did download that one AND paid for it but was disappointed to find that it was for the 2004 model. Anyway, I found another one and will post tomorrow as I have the web address at work.

Thanks for all your replies though guys.

BTW is anyone going on the 2011 Tenere Tragics - Run to the Rocks in March, I'm a complete noob to biking but am looking forward to it...

Let me know if you need any more help with the manuals

I would have done the run to the rocks, but my big ride for the year is the APC2011 rally, plus a weekend in Cairns for MTB and a week to do a hike, so another week of in Feb does not fit in my calendar

The run to the rocks will be good to see some of the older thumpers. I owned one of the 83 model Tenere that Clubby has, it would be really good to see some of them again, they are very very rare where I live

Maybe the next Tenere owners ride will be a bit closer

OK, well I finally had some success and a little failure.

What I found was that the alloy thread that you see in the close-up is encased in a rubber sleeve that
was well and truly wedged into the bars. This HAD to come out to get the mounting kit inserted.

So after much sweat, blood AND tears...yes there were some I got the thing out.

Then I went and bought some new handle bars and now need a different size mounting kit.

LOL, ahh well some days the windshield, some days the bug....

Thanks all.

That's a nice looking Tenere.
Here is a photo with mine, a few days ago:

Thanks x86 neighbor . The only mods so far are the crash bars, paniers and a taller windshield, got a central stand but only half of it need to make a bracket to fit it on the bike. Will put on heated grips (any ideas?), a 12v lighter and a set of hand guards (any help here also appreciated). Umfortunatelly i had no luck in finding the original side panel stickers, if anyone spots a set please let me know.
