Yes, it does... Just as Yamaha already pre-wired it for their heated grip kit. Behind the right side cover (where the battery is) if you fish around in front of the battery at the upper forward corner, under all the various wire bundles, you'll find two unused plugs... One is for the lights, one for the grips.

But there is already a *TON* of information about both plugs here on ADVrider as well as on the Yamaha Super Tenere forum site. Just do some searches, or use Google and just use "ADVrider" or "Yamaha Super Tenere forum" in the search string line.

Remember, the "Search" is your friend...

Best Tenere bags ever?





Almost a matching set. Both Sampsonite, but ones almost double the cost of the other. I think the moral is that Goodwill is a better adventure bike value than St Vincent De Paul.

Wasp and Jaumev have turned theirs into a KTM. You sir have turned it into a KLR.

I guess all the comparison talk was true.

I think you also managed to single handedly turn a blue Tenere into chick repellent.

I did not know the S10 had a prewired system for aux lights and heated grips. There are two of them just in front of the battery. Lights connector is the one with three wires, and the grips' with four wires. But what if i use one of them for connecting my air compressor?? Will it work?? Plugs even came with the female plugs.
I wonder if the light connector will work for any kind of aux lights??? Can I connect a pair of rigid dually lights??

Thanks for your help!!!

Aux light plug has 2 12V circuits.
Constant 12V on the red/white wire - 20 amps - labeled O/P in fuse box.
Switched 12V on the tan wire - is part of ignition circuit.
Negative is black wire.

I run the constant to a relay and use the other to switch it.

I know, I know... I understand you...

Dont steal it please! If you like you can have a ride with it in your way back to the UK

With the 21" wheel I didn't reach the floor so I lower the seat. Its custom made by an artisan in Barcelona who does very nice bike seats using the OEM so its a lot cheaper than a complete seat.

At the same time I asked to change the shape making it bit narrower in the front. The shape and the non slide material on the top helps to avoid slip forward as in the OEM seat.
I like also the materials and colours!!

Haha, not my bike. Just saw it. I love it. I'm sure he's got some real bags, but I dig the anti bling of them.

Chicks? Haha. Classic bikes draw old men to you, Harley's draw girls to you (God only knows why), but an adventure bike should be in the dirt where there aren't any girls around anyhow.

I agree, but I find myself wondering what he keeps in the squirt gun. Whatever it is, I'm afraid. Very afraid.

After needing a tube two times now I decided to try and come up with a spot
it would always be on the bike for those non bag rides. Bought a fender tube
bag and after holding it all over the place this made the best sense for easy
removal and not in the way of anything else. Cut the little hooks off so they
wouldn't vibrate on the cover.



Tucked it inside the Altrider side guards running the strap so it won't blow
back. The other pipe angle should keep it from coming forward.



Then Christmas came early and a Zumo 660 was on my porch. I hard wired
the mount. In the past I've always used the power outlets. The last couple
rides kinda did my Garmin 276c mount in. Also where the power cord went
into the GPS wouldn't stay in anymore. Rubber bands and tape got it out
of Baja. Anyway, this new unit plays music too so I can get rid of the i-pod
and it's charging cord as well.



My other motivation was the 276c never worked over the border. I had bought
Garmin's Mexico map set and it was useless on a Copper Canyon ride.

The mount feels solid. Still, I think in the future if it's bad off road I'll put
the unit in the tank bag until it's over.




You can plug audio into the unit or it had cords on the hardwire for headphones
and computor connections. I just ran a headphone jack here too.




I had an assortment of zip ties out while routing wires. My grandaughter always
loves to be involved and was quietly so busy on the other side of the bike.
When finished I noticed this......
