Did you had any issues with rear sprocket hub freeplay in the wheelbearings? Did you have to change it alot? What about rear hub rubber? I found these parts are weak point on Tenere.
By now (18 000 kilometres I already changed several whealbearings in rear sprocket hub. I had changed (in warranty) rear hub, because bearing socket got too much freeplay. And I had changed the sprocket hub rubbers.
Now at 18 000 km I will soon have to change rubber and bearings again.
( But I do qiute some offroading)
To save the cushdrive rubbers I modified the rear hub, with another bearing on the inside. I did this at work but any metal shop can do this for you, just create another bearingchamber and make the spacer fit again.
You also can replace the original bearing by a INA 3205-2RS F0712 this is the one BMW uses on some bikes. This is a double bearing and works well too, best thing is the drive chain lasts much longer too
