My Ténéré

I wanted to show you guys my Ten before it gets all dirty again.






I'm pretty happy with the state of mods right now. It was a hard work to get all the things sorted out.

I start at the front and going back to explain you all the stuff...

- TT roll bar
- TT pinion gear guard
- Pivot Pegz
- Swingarm axle covers
- Yamaha centre stand
- TT side stand base extension
- TT folding gear lever
- TT brake lever extension
- TT brake fluid reservoir cover
- Öhlins shock absorber
- Supersprox rear sprocket and DID 520VM X-Ring chain (15/48)
- OTR axle crash pads
- OTR 2in1 exhaust system
- TT pannier frames + Zega Pro And-S 31
- TT luggage rack
- Kahedo seat +4cm
- DNA stage 2 filter kit
- Power Commander V
- Magura EX handlebar

Yes, very nice.
Mine ( if I had one) would be looking very similar.
One fine day...

Bro,I see u got all the goodies for ur Tenere except one! Radiator Guard!!Never leave home without it.A must have cause the original Yammie radiator cover is useless.This what happen to my Tenere during my recent ride.Luckily one of my buddies carries a plastic steel epoxy.



Since the bike shops here doesn't bring in the radiator guard,I decided to make my own radiator guard.
I made it with my home oven spare grill.(Without my wife Knowledge off course).


Cheers bro,and have a safe ride.

A friend of mine rode from mongolia to england with a guided tour. all the bikes were tenere's. 2 of them broke down with the same problem (a cam chain tensioner I think) Any problem with yours in that department?

Thank you MarlboroMan for the hint, I'll think about it. And sorry for your Ten, bad luck I guess. But a nice one with the oven grill :-)

So far not at all. The 20'000km so far went very smoothly and I hope it stays that way.

Nicely modded bike!

How much do you have invested all in? Any idea what it weighs?

Cheers

I did the calculation... :O
The total amount for accessories/mods is about £5500. This number is WITH the Zega Pro panniers and the GPS system!
So you can minus £600 for the Zegas and £500 for the GPS. So the mods with the panniers system from Touratech are about £4400 which seems about right.

Why I did this? It's my dream bike. I like the pros and love the cons ;-)
No seriously, I think it'll last for the next couple of years and it hopefully stays a reliant buddy on and off the road.

Have a nice evening.
