Last picture before winter hibernation (no snow, was a few weeks ago):

The tenere is running very lean from stock. You can either fit a power commander or I just found out there is a 15% tollerance in the ECU that you yamaha dealer can change with a special tool.

I adjusted the TPS with a special tool called a "screwdriver" and it helped a bit. =)

I want one, I want one, I want one.

The Tenere, looks like it'd be better than a KLR in almost everyway, and maybe a little less finicky than a KTM.

I believe that the KLR is the number one selling dual sport in the U.S..

Think there is a market for an up graded option.

Warning: I'm not a tech guru so do it on your own risk or ask someone more skilled then me before you do it. I just loosened the thing you see there and rotated it a bit to trick the engine to believe it has more gas then it actually has. Used trial and error and got it right, might be luck but it works.

I don't think this will enrich the fueling. This sensor give the ECU information on how far the trottle has been opend, then it can calculate how much (or little) fuel should be injected. It is better to foul the ECU with the temperature sensor, or using a larger injector.

Stopped in at Pro Griffin, Maroochydore today and took a peek at the blue one on the floor. It took me back to 1986 and my blue XTZ600Z which remains one of my all-time favourite bikes for it's good power and weight figures (50hp and 165kg from memory) as well as excellent suspension quality.

Have any Australian owners covered enough ground to offer a constructive report, yet?

And in this case, it applies to Molgan's home or whatever that building is in the background!

Nice-looking bikes...very nice-looking...wish they sold them on this continent.
