The Tenere Owners Thread

OK, all you Tenere owners post your pics here. Old or new, clean or dirty, stock or modified, lets see them.

Lets get started with mine, its a 99 XTZ 660. I brought it as a project bike and now it is almost complete. Mechanicaly the bike was OK, it just needed a tidy up and some new parts like -

New paint and decals
Tinted screen
Higher bars
Lower footpegs
Hand gaurds
Stainless steel exhaust
Excel rims (18" rear)
Stainless Heavy duty spokes
Mini indicator lights
Racetech suspension rebuild
Swingarm bearings and bushes
Tyres
Chain and sprockets
Brake pads
Clutch cable
Heaps of elbow grease fixing, cleaning or replacing minor bits and pieces

If yamaha released this bike - today - in the same spec - they'd sell every damn one - for $10k. I'd be first in line at my local (or distant) dealer to get this.
Bloody Aussies!

OK, well I finally had some success and a little failure.

What I found was that the alloy thread that you see in the close-up is encased in a rubber sleeve that
was well and truly wedged into the bars. This HAD to come out to get the mounting kit inserted.

So after much sweat, blood AND tears...yes there were some I got the thing out.

Then I went and bought some new handle bars and now need a different size mounting kit.

LOL, ahh well some days the windshield, some days the bug....

Thanks all.

Don't forget that the 600 Tenere also had twin headlights.
