1st black switch turns power on or off for the plug on the left which is always powered (wired through the fuse box)

The two green LED's are ON when the plugs are powered

3rd switch (red) powers my accessory lights and the red LED is on when powered (obviously )

4th switch (red) powers my radar detector, in case I want to switch it off after I'm stopped by a cop

The GPS is always powered since I might want to use it while the bike is not running

Wow, this is really impressive! I don't even own a Tenere, but seeing this set-up puts another log on the fire. I have a demo ride scheduled for next week. I'm down to three bikes on my list, Super Tenere, a KTM super enduro, and the Multistrada. But the Tenere is way ahead just because of all the mods and accessories available for it. I can't wait for my ride to see what the rave is about.
You should create an installation guide (and include your cell # for electronically challenged folks like myself ) for others that would find this set-up ideal. If I get a Tenere expect a pm asking for more details on this set-up, !

Have done a few mods PCV, K & N Filter & our mufflers.
So far have got a 12-15% increase over stock.
Sounds and looks very nice
Do you feel it improves the bike?

May your bike always be not eponymous...

Thumb S10 twin mufflers

Hi Jaumev,
To be honest, I liked the bike how it was even in standard trim.
EG: I know the Ducati has shit loads more power , but how would it hold up fully loaded on a curragated road for 2000klm, etc.
So I always buy a bike to suit what I think I need.
I must like the look of it as well.
I also take into account repare cost, services (Over her in Aus, the Ducati dealers charge like you own a Ferrari
My mates have 1200GS nice bikes, but I felt more at home on the Yamaha.
As I was after a bike (when fully loaded) allows you to pass a truck 50mts long with ease (100kph top gear stuff with plenty of Torque not having to change down & rev the crap out of it, & can do 1000klm in a day with ease) this suited my needs.
As far as improves the bike, yes it has made it even more enjoyable to ride (Even with the single sports muffler) But the twin set up looks more balance & sounds more off-beat note like a twin & Deeper, it now seems to have endless Torque.
Chappy.

P.S Any more Worlscrosser photos are most welcome!
Sry for the late answer, but i was busy riding

Yes, the the little frame guards have to be removed to fit the touratech bars.
I think the bash plate has the same fixings, it looks to me that it is the same plate with the black upper things added, but i never compared with the regular yamaha bash plate.

Here is pic of my bike from the Sierra di Cadi in Spain:

Vader

Here's my beauty, the cleanest it will ever be, 2 more weeks and then I head northwest

Super Tenere gathering in Whitehorse, Yukon

Then Alaska

My little Darth Vader will be accompanying me



Painted the windshield to hide the EZPass toll tag behind, now the ADV sticker stands out even more

Great looking bike Jaumev. That has to be among the best I've seen. I only have one suggestion, two words: 'Headlight protector'

Thanks!
But the evolution Is not finished yet… work in progress :
- Front springs (harder than OEM ones)
- New sticker’s kit (more discrete…)
- Stronger protections: bash plate, crash bars, etc.
- Smaller rear mudguard
- Aux lights
- Finished production dual exhaust
- 21” front wheel
- Panniers
- others…..
