glad I had the centre stand tho

I didn't have a 14 mm allen key for the front wheel so had to wait for my mate on another tenere to come back for me. Checked he had one before we went out so will go and buy one for next time

Made this drawings a boring afternoon a couple years ago.
I don't love the going (crap FI) of the XT-R, as opposed to the XT-Z, so thought about mixing them both; looks of the R and engeneering of the Z.. This is what came out that boredom:

Took the original pics from OTR and H&B. Result is supposed to be a recreation of the original early 80's Ténérés.

Sevbh, how is the Healtech GI Pro working out? Been thinking of getting one.

Hi everyone. Just got my new baby here in Ethiopia, and looking forward to having lots of adventures around East Africa with her. Here is what I have added on the bike:

1. SW Mototech Crash Bar: Quite sturdy crash bars which go well with the bikes design and also protect the sides and the tank. The first thing I bought for my Ten.


2. Engine Guard And Center Stand: The steel engine guard was a must to replace the stock plastic one. The centre stand is fantastic to have, I dont need to say more...


3. Aluminium Chain Guard: I like aluminium


4. Axle Protectors, front and rear


5. Bushguards: these are incredibly strong. Ive had a couple of falls and these things only came out with scratches..


6. Tank Pad Protection: For the tank bag....


7. Yamaha Side and Top Cases


8. 12V Plug: Goos accessory to have. Can take up to 24W (but if you change the fuse that came with you can get a bit more out of it if needed)...


9. iPhone Waterproof case and Charger: Vital


10. Healdight Protector Clear


11. Givi Tall Windsceen: I'm not the tallest guy around. At about 174 cm, the wind was hitting my helmet above 100km/h, so I suppose the stock wind guard is simply too short.


12. Gipro Gear Indicator: Just Because....


13. Battery Charge Level indicator: If your going to add things to your bike that require power, you are going to want to keep an eye on the battery level. Its also a way a knowing that your dyno is working and charging the batt when the bike is running. Having no kick start, your batt is one the most precious things to take care of when on a trip...


14. Sound System: I love music and need to listen to something while im cruising...Waterproof, with AUX to connect to your phone...


15. Heated Grips: for the colder climates. Got the heating pads for £5 and they work pretty well...good alternative to Oxfords expensive solution.


16. Added Headlights: I still can't get used to the lights not turning with the steering...so i came up with this solution..55W each halogen bulbs and bright as hell...I get noticed a lots easier on the road and they are amazing at night... really happy with them.


17. Extra Headlight and heated grips switches: Added switches to control my new toys .


18. Dashboard View


19. My Ténéré




Overall, I am still getting used to this beast...but i can tell we are going to get along very well. Great bike. I wouldnt have chosen anything else ..

Nice vid, Zhesin! Is your seat standard? And do you have ABS disconnected on those woods?

Regards from México.

New to me,09 Tenere

Doing a short trip today With my new to me bike, bough from the orig. owner yesterday. It is a bit chilly up North With -4 celsius, but With heated grips it turns out to be ok for the 5kms trip. I have to do this trip , because the Winther would turn out to long if not.........Think I love the bike already
