Ive got some renthal bars on mine and i don't really think they allow much room to slide the controls in towards the headstock.

Might have to find a guy who can repair and paint plastic now seeing yours.
Clutch will fit no problem, brake lever is a bit longer and will have to be angled down a bit to miss the aluminium bar on the inside of the barkbuster, or just cut a bit off the lever.

I repaired my fairings with every day fibre glass and resin ( surfboard repair kit ) and sanded to a smooth finish. The local spraypainter used automotive 2 pak paint and primer.

Yet another reason to hate the decision makers at various Moto Headquarters.

But, I sleep soundly knowing that when our economy finnally goes "BOOM", everyone else will be right there with us...

JOKE!!!! sort of.

The screen is custom made job from Eagle Screens in Australia, I had it made 75mm ( 1 & 1/2 inches) taller and 20mm (3/4 inch) wider than the stock one.

The rear rim is a 18 inch x 2.50.

Good luck with sorcing parts in the USA, you will be better off to look around europe, these bikes sold well in England and Germany I've been told.

Man, this guy is killin' me. The USA got exactly 0 Teneres in the '80s/'90s - come to think of it, we still do.

cheers.

man this thread had to be dug out from page 5 already.

I was going to ask about the screen too, as it looks wider than the eagle (normal ones), but you already gave that info.

so, can I ask about the down pipes? they look good. custom made jobs?

Another SoCal Tenere

I'm getting rid of the blue paint. Put on YZ490 forks and a longer shock from Works Performance, should have some real suspension now.
