Pannier-less racks aren't exactly eye candy regardless of the manufacturer.
And I agree the HT racks don't even attempt to be anything but functional as mounting surfaces. But they are as sturdy as they come. And the whole HT system is a no nonsense value.

Lots of Happy Trails Happy Customers. :)

I always imagined coming up with something clever to mount to the empty racks to give them a less fugly look. Would be really easy to do using the threaded knobs that we use to mount the cases. But it turns out I never ride without them.

I now have a double Yammy stable and I'm very pleased with both. Solid, dependable.. it took me a while to get to really like the Super Ten.. and really like the punchy engine, especially after doing the 5 second clutch switch bypass mod.
Would someone mind letting me know what the 5 sec clutch switch is please. In addition any simple electronics mode (engine chips) worth doing. Please point me to the right thread if there is something that deals with engine character/power. I have enough power and really like the solid ride for touring but it lacks the urgency of my GSA.

True its not the most sightly of racks, but then again, who am I fooling in my hi-viz jacket and Space Balls helmet atop a royal blue water buffalo. If I was worried about that I'd be wearing one of those triumph jackets that says "cool like McQueen" or whatever and polishing a bike with a fake carburetor....

Maybe these will help...


http://lmgtfy.com/?q=Super+Tenere+%22clutch+switch%22

or


http://lmgtfy.com/?q=Super+Tenere+%2...+jumper+mod%22

or

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=Yamaha+%22clutch+switch+mod%22

or

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=Super+Tenere+%2...switch+mod%22+


Or you could simply do a "Search" here on ADVrider (http://www.advrider.com/forums/search.php), though there is much more info over on the Yamaha Super Tenere forum... But ADVrider doesn't like folks posting links to other forums here.

Enjoy!

I hate the kickstand.

It feels to me like the kickstand is too short and as a result the bike leans way too far over. Also, I have found the stock kickstand foot is too small...damn thing has tried to take a nap on more than one occasion by digging in.

Any suggestions on rectifying this situation?

I looked at a lot, (all), of the available side stand feet and ended up going with the AltRider one. Had to grind a little bit to make it fit, but it doesn't make the side stand any harder to get down and works very, very well at keeping the bike from sinking in. Stainless steel too.

That said, if you want a more upright position, Ride On ADV, (AKA Jaxon/Tabasco on this forum), has some good offerings that are thicker, If I recall correctly, and will give you that more upright position.

You can buy a wider kickstand foot or make your own. or buy one here.... Rideonadv.com

Also a search on Google will help.

If you have not set the sag, try that to improve kickstand lean. Add more preload.

Some of what you are feeling is the suspension unloading when you get off.

This really is the best mod for the least $. I really enjoy the new found responsiveness of the bike after doing this.
