For all you 3aj owners. Know that the exhaust can hit the rear caliper bracket. We lost 3 on our trip.

does anyone have a workshop manual for the tenere, xtz660 model ?
i need to remove the starter motor, but is there an easier way other than removing the exhaust ?

i'd love to get my hands on a set of white plastics, i got the black ones, but had a fall at 40 km p/h on a gravel road, and well, my nice shiny bike ain't shiny no more on the r/h side , and the plastics are a bit hurt, and scratched up, and cracked, so in the future, next tax time, i might invest in a new white set of plastics
i will also be investing in some crash bars, and at that price that is pretty reasonable, rather than forkin up for a set of new plastics all the time.

Last April I did a lap of OZ with LOWRPM and while we were sitting in a pub in Darwin I saw an XTZ. I remember reading the writeup that LC8TY did on his project and thought it was a great concept and a great bike.

Well now I've got one too. A 98 model with 26000 k's and other than having 11 years of grot it looks pretty honest. The 1200GSA is now for sale and when that's sold I want to do a few mods to the XTZ and take it where I was too shit scared to take the GSA.

It arrived from Brisbane tonight and when I went to take the seat off I realised I knew bugger all about it, can anyone help me out with an owners manual?

Very quiet on here.. Just a quick question if anybody is out there, Is the rev limiter able to be bipassed and let it rev that little higher.. Very annoying cutting in as you start really giving it some.. And what is the best pipe to fit? Thanks Shannon
