I'm not discounting that one or more of these mods might improve something, but I just want to present the observation that not everyone thinks the bike has a "trifecta" of fueling/ignition problems that need correction before the bike will run quite well.

Very true, I be one, sorta (I did balance throttle bodies, and adjust CO, but it is back to stock). I must admit tho, the Gen2 ECUnleased flash sounds good what with better midrange power and better MPG.

You already received some good adivce from others on this. What I've done in the past, if I had an issue pushing it in is using one of the old brake pads and big ol' C-Clamp. Just slowly turn the C-clamp and it will push it in. Unless it's a VW, then you need a special tool to actually turn it back in...

Or a damn mustang or Hyundai Tiburon, so difficult using the tool to push the pistons back specially after the car is a few years old and things start to rust ghead:

I too do not mean to be confrontational. What's the most common suggestion to people considering
a test drive? "Bring a mini fuse".

Before the reflash I did the airscrew mod because personally the low speed hiccup bothered
me enough to want to try and remedy it. This was before the 'clutch mod' was discovered.

Had the reflash done and was quite pleased that the bike felt it was running the way it was intended
to before it's carbon footprint was made three sizes smaller.

Sure the bike ran okay, I wasn't going to sell it over the hiccup. Just bothered me to know it was
curable and the bike had the easy potential to clean up fueling glitches with a simple mod.

I'm sure the people who have suspension mods scratch their heads wondering why everyone isn't
running an Ohlins set up. Probably if I had the chance to ride and feel the difference I would be
less impressed with the OEM stuff, for now I've left it alone out of not knowing what I'm missing.

Or just do what I tend to do and wait until the bike has about 30k miles on it and the suspension is starting to get soft, then upgrade it. It's like getting a brand new bike

Same thought when I upgraded the suspension on the Vstrom. But for now I'll ride in blissful ignorance.

I should have waited before buying my bike instead of putting a deposit on the first day of the announcement.

I could have picked up a bike now with all the mods, reflash, new shock, doohickey and so on for way less than what I paid

At a dealer by me there's a special edition R1 with at least $8K invested with less than 5k miles selling for $12K

The sales guys tells me the owner invested a lot of money

I ask him why is it still sitting on the floor for more than 8 months?

He looks at me

Because no one gives a crap he invested all that money and didn't use the bike, that's why

The Yamaha is a good and reliable bike, period ....... It works for what it was designed for

Pluric, I think I fixed this for you. Two of the best things in one post!

Wink Just got one.



After reading a lot about bike protections, I decided to get :

AltRider Crash Bars for the Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z &
AltRider Skid Plate for the Yamaha Super Tenere XT 1200Z

Any input will be appreciated.

Thanks
