My question is whether there is a reason for a 1200 engine in the Tenere?

I imagine the disadvantages of a large engine are poor MPG and weight, but what are the advantages?
43mpg is no so poor. big engine is nice for big touring. strong. good acceleration

Off-The-Road in Germany show a Carbon Fibre Exhaust Shield on their site that looks very much like the Yamaha OEM World Crosser part.

Yes Off-The-Road state that this part is indeed the Yamaha OEM World Crosser Accessory item.

Engine light out.

Icecold Dan provided the reset procedure and access to the diagnostic section for codes. And I had quite a few too. If you guys get bored, I can post them.

I knew this group could bail me out. Thanks.

Here are some pics of the disaster last month and if you're into rally memorabilia: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=902331

Gulp. Wow. Sorry. I can't even begin to imagine being wiped out like that.

Thanks for posting the link so we can have a chance to help a little.

I'm glad you got it worked out Jim. So sorry to see the devistating loss you suffered recently. I'm glad you and your family weren't hurt.

Please be sure to give us a review. This seat has me very interested. If you could please include; how well it fits on the bike, comfort, does it eliminate the forward tilt, etc.. How grippy or slippery is the vinyl surface? Also I'm curious about how long did it take to be delivered after you ordered. Thanks in advance.

Ouch. That hurts to look at and it's not even my rim.

Did you let air out before hitting the boonies, or did this happen at normal pressure? What's the next step after this happens?

They must weigh double what the stockers weigh, I assume it is the denser foam and gel pads. I haven't had a chance to ride it yet as we went boating today instead, but here are a few pics since there didn't seem to be many around the web. I will report back once we put a few miles on it..





Where did your order it from? Does it fix the forward slope issue??

I am also working with Twisted Throttle trying to find the correct adapter to out a set of MFW Vario adjustable footpegs on the rear for the wife. She does not like the peg to seat set up. HAPPY WIFE=HAPPY LIFE
