Mezo.

That's the headlight cowl isn't it?



All Teneres I can see have the indicators mounted to the forks but maybe the standard XT600 was different for some reason. Mine is in a bit of a poor state - it had been snapped and repaired with a great big metal plate stuck on the back. There's also a screw snapped off in the lower mounting holes we're going to have to get out of the forks before it can be mounted properly.

The next cab off the rank is an early model Tenere'. I don't think they have quite caught on, like my BMW R100RS. They are on the back burner and prices are simmering away.
$13K for a early GS........WHAT ????

I better keep my '82 R100RS a bit longer .........

That is a great approach, one I've used on a few projects, both personal and professional.

Keep 'ur head down and press on ......... and never never total the receipts. I made that mistake once and ended up selling the bike mid-project cuz the economics got me down.

I love my RS it is old and cranky like me. An sounds great with Keihan jim cray mufflers. I have a long history of RS's and they are in my DNA. I would not want to sell it, but if I did. It would go for around the $10 K mark hear in OZ. My mates collect very nice 70's Guzzi & Lavs. Now you should see the price of them

I received my cowling today from South Africa. I got a pic from the micro fiche and it looks like this.


The cowling is very similar or might be the same.

Arrrgh how many different headlight shrouds can there be. I have thinking I might have to teach myself plastic welding. Every thing I have cracked as well. Just like its owner, I guess.

Cannot put it off any longer. Time for some cleaning. Start with the swing arm bits. A few years of caked on dirt and grease.


Time to break the mini Mezo parts cleaner.


After a couple hours and a bit of plastic bag sand blasting.

I've done plastic welding before and it's pretty easy. I was welding polypro for making etching tanks but most weldable plastics are about the same.

I had used a pretty basic kit from McMaster-Carr supply house (like #7890A3) that ran about $350 at the time. I think there are cheaper ones available but beware of ones that don't put out enough heat.

The other thing is to get the proper plastic alloy rod to match what you are welding.

Right "O" Mezo & Dan. I had some head time while degreasing parts and thought. Bloody hell, what have got myself into. Just doing a mental thing of what I need to buy to finish the tank and forks off. Then the swing arm & wheels.

if I had deep pockets. This resto caper would easy. I stopped off at some shops this morning to see if they had an idea of how front spokes would be and maybe a new excel rim. The were not sure, but at least $150 for front spoke set and around $240 for a front rim.

I need new front springs and red fork boots. That finishes the front forks.

To finish the tank I need. POR 15 kit, 2 pack primer and clean white paint, a sticker kit.

To finish off the swing arm. I need new bearing kit, plastic chain guides.

Phew, and have not got to the interesting bit. the engine......

Haaa, gets expensive when you do it properly.

All the OEM Yamaha bits i get from Boats.net, wait till you have a long list of stuff & get it all in one go.

Some bits you can buy patern parts, some bits you will need OEM. And remember the US did not get the Tenere so you have to get the stuff that fits on the bog standard XT600 of the same year (most bits cross over).

The reason im pointing you towards the US is because of the exchange rate is much better than the UK exchange, shipping is similar even but normally slightly cheaper from the US, and don't even waste a call to your local dealer its going to be a rip off i guarantee that.

Its just a matter of shopping around for as much patern stuff you can get from one guy & the rest (OEM gear) from Boats.net.

Noticed you did your top clamp silver Dan & not the original black, personnel preference?

Them hubs look just as nice as powdercoat, but there again your a professional painter.
