I never liked the Tenere because of the weight. To be fair, it is very well balanced so when you take it off the kickstand it doesn't feel that heavy. But you can feel the heft of the bike when...

Get a Ninja 650 engine AND ECU, plenty of those on eBay. Just make sure the engine and ECU are for the same year, 12+ engines are different and I'm not sure they'll do fine with the older ECU.

Traxxion AK20 catridges in the froks, Penske 8983 shock. I'm pretty sure the damage would have been worse with the OEM suspension.
