You'll need a photo hosting account with someone like Smugmug or photobucket. Then once you uploaded some pics you'll be able to link them here

Don't think so just a dedicated hosting site.

I've written to Yamaha asking them to please bring this bike to Canada, though judging from the price in other countries I know it wouldn't be cheap at all if it was for sale here. I'm sure that's why Yamaha doesn't sell it in North America.

A shame though, we really need some better choices of big dual sports here, and with the growing popularity of adventure-touring, the Ténéré would get a lot of attention.

I heard the Z doesn't pass the strict California emissions control and as California is the centre of the universe it means no Z for N America.

Windscreen mods

Question for those that have spray painted their windscreens.
Did you spray the back or front or both?

Also has anyone who cut the original screen down i.e. made it shorter regretted the result? Did you find it to be better on the turbulence front or worse?

I'm thinking of doing both.

I cut 70mm off mine, it's a lot better than it was, no regrets what so ever!...

From the Aussie Tenere thread:

Standard screen:


I purchased one of the OTR tall screens, 66euro ($88aus) + delivery:
http://www.off-the-road.de/en/XT-660...Tenere-08.html
The buffeting wasn't as bad, and it was ok with the visor down... but the wind off the top of the screen hit me right across the eyes, I ride with the visor up most the time so this was a pain, the wind caught under the visor.... Also, in rough stuff I didn't like how close the top of it got to my face at times, and how it distorted my view of the track ahead: (my knees are stuffed so I ride seated most the time)





The tall screen may suit some people, just not me... I took it off after 1 ride....

I'm now running the standard screen with 70mm trimmed off the top, it's a lot better for me, the wind hits just under the helmet, my head is in reasonably clean air... It could probably do with having a little more cut off, but I think it will look terrible any shorter... This thread needs more pics, so here's a heap with the cut down screen
















To cut it down I set some calipers to 70mm and scribed a line across 70mm down from the top edge, then scribed lines out to the edge at an angle that looked ok, basically following the angle of the line across the middle so I could cut straight across without having to change direction.... To cut it off I used an angle grinder with a thin metal cutting wheel, I stopped a bit long in a couple of spots and the plastic melted and bubbled up a bit, it was easy enough to clean up with a file and some sand paper... I polished the cut edge with some toothpaste on a rag... Total time to do it was about 15 mins...

:)

From the Aussie Tenere thread:
Good to hear. I'm 6'4''. I'll chop the top off on the weekend.
