AltRider parts for the Super Tenere - coming soon!
We are working around the clock on developing parts for the Super Tenere, and are excited to make these available to you soon.

It won’t be much longer until you’ll be able to pre-order the entire AltRider line for the Super Tenere. If you live outside the US and have already purchased the bike – you may want to hold off until you see what we’ve got in store. Not only are we engineering some strong products, but our in-house design team is ensuring that they really reflect the lines of the bike.

Want to know what we’ve got coming? You can check out our blog post about it. Then create an AltRider account and sign up for Yamaha specific product news update emails – which means you’ll be notified when we’ve got new stuff coming for your bike.

Here is the first development image of the AltRider Skid Plate for the Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200!

You can read more about the specs on our product page, or head over to our blog post about all the parts we’re developing.

We’ll be keeping you updated with pictures of this and other products as we develop them, but we also want to hear from you. What are your thoughts about the new Super Tenere, and what parts do you think it needs most?

Crashbars that really protect the bike - something like the Metal Mule or Wild @ Heart bars for the 800GS. Best ones I've seen yet on an S10 were from South Africa. They were custom made - post 1365-66 at If yuo can come up with something close to this that doesn't require cutting the panels, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. The bars should also allow access for side panel removal.

A bashplate you can actually "bash"! I think the S10 has plate mounting on the oil pan - same as my 800GS. This does not work well in my experience. Perhaps some way of having the rear of the plate mount on the footpeg brackets? (I think Hepco and Becker had this idea for the S10 on their Intermot bike) Anything to keep pressure off the oil pan, or at least diffuse the pressure as much as possible.

Handguards, unless Barkbuster Storms will work.

Tail rack/plate with some carefully thought out slots for bungees and straps.

A strong pannier rack with good lateral cross bracing to support the rear of the rack frame. Ideally integrated with the top/tail plate so that you can open your panniers even with a top case. (Unlike Yamaha's set up).

While I'm dreaming, perhaps an auxiliary fuel cell set up like the World Crosser concept Tenere. :D

Raising links, and even better a front end raising kit. I would love a bit more ground clearance.

Bar risers

Fastway F5 size and style footpegs.

On the electrical side, again, while I'm dreaming: a handlebar mounted "info" control so that you can work your way through the bike info stats without taking your hands off the bars. Bonus points if it has an ABS "off" switch. (Thinking of the BMW handlebar layout for this)

Heated grip kit without the massive and ugly controller, or better yet, a kit with a high/medium/low switch on the handlebar

Dash shelf to mount heated grip controller, extra 12V/accessory sockets, etc.

Front fender raising kit

Above dash vibration dampened GPS mount so that you keep your eyes on the road rather than looking down at the bars.

Kaoko throttle lock

That's all I can think of for the moment.

In case it was overlooked, you should ensure that the oil filter can be removed with the skid plate in place(i.e. a human hand can fit in between the plate and the engine). Also, there should be a slot cut into the plate below the area where the oil filter seats against the engine so the oil doesn't fill the skid plate up. Also, hole(s) to fit tools through to remove and oil drain plugs.

Thanks for the input, guys, keep it coming! :clap

The AltRider Side Stand Foot for the Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200 is now available for purchase!

Like our other side stand feet, the side stand foot for the Super Tenere is made from 1/8 inch stainless steel. It features a 3D design to create traction for your boots, so it’s easy to deploy while still on the bike.

Torx fasteners allow it to clamp down on the actual foot of the side stand, so even after months of use, you won’t have to deal with rattling or stripped fasteners.

This is the first item we have available for this bike, but there are more on the way! You can order the AltRider side stand foot for the Super Tenere XT1200 now, and if ordered before 2 pm Pacific it will ship today.

Just out of curiosity, is that a non-US spec bike?

One more question - if someone happened to be in the Seattle area, could they visit and see the bike in person? :evil


Jeremy L 10-29-2010 04:34 PM


Yep. :D

If someone happened to be in the Seattle area on a weekday between 8 and 6, yes, they could definitely stop by and see it.

sail2xxs 11-01-2010 06:44 AM

Sweet!! I'll check back with you on visiting... considering the time of year, it's about a 3K mile ride over, so I need to see about getting some time off work.


Jeremy L 11-01-2010 10:22 AM

Chris, just let us know when to expect you. :D

The rest of you are welcome to swing by, too... though I expect not everyone wants to take vacation time to do it.

SpeedStar 11-01-2010 02:06 PM

Jeremy, any plans to do a bar riser? Others have said up to 2" is possible with the stock lines. Given the hydro clutch and linked brakes, I would not want to have to change the stock lines.

sail2 and speedstar,

working on peg solutions tonight, may have something figured by early next week.....REVISED engineer just came in, nothing moving forward on footpegs nest week.

Bar risers we just filmed installing and verify the reach on 2 inch risers. and yeah cable clearance is all good, we will put that out early next week as well

Sail, the luggage rack work started this week, and we fully hear you on the thought process about hooks; to that point a few weeks ago we wrote story about how involved it got to do it right
see pictures and read here

As for crashbar and skidplate they have taken a majority of the time this past several weeks. were very excited about what we have finalized on. specifically what makes our skidplate design work so well is the time and thought that went into the mounting system, specifically the brackets 3/16 stainless. after some much sheet work we are really honing our craft. these are stout brackets that will not bend and allow the skid plate to impact the bike during big hits. (we will get something out soon so you guys can see) we are even taking it a step further with a replacement Billet cap which will further makes the mount bomb proof, and to finalize we are working on a impact pad that will to further distribute impact across 90% of the surface area of the sump for the serious off rider...

lots more coming....

SpeedStar 11-05-2010 07:44 PM

Great news on the 2" riser capability. I will look forward to seeing those and the rear rack as I always use a tailbag for daily use.

Jeremy L 11-05-2010 07:50 PM

thanks man, i cant wait to show you guys the skidplate work....

and dont get me started on the crashbars... again i think we really are offering an improved solution primarily because of how it mounts.

i will work on getting some graphics from Jacobs engineering drawings. we are also expediting the prototypes so the we can debut the hard parts at the Melbourne International Motorcycle show on the 26th!!! short time lines...
