That is interesting and very clever.
It shows that the calculations that the ABS/TCS does are set by parameters fed back to the ABS unit during the first couple of wheel revolutions after start up. i.e. The period that the ABS light is on, if it is turned off for any reason. (fuse removed/Wheel spin on stand etc)

So how did you get around the tyre touching the bike ?

The tire touch the skid plate centre. Now the manufacturer (ACD) is trying to modify the plate to avoid this. At the end of the week we’ll know if hw can…. Hope so!
With the Touratech it touch very little in full compression.

Yep, Mikef500 was surprised too. He then promptly turned to testing the "Unlimited All-Hazard Warranty" listed on the box by tossing the crashguards and the skid plate through the nearest flat screen TV. It's all evident by the expression on his face.

I don't know. Looks more like he grabbed the Orgasmatron before reading the instructions.

You can go here for info on a bunch of skid plates.

Cut and paste on skid plates:

WEIGHT (measured with bolts and all hardware): lbs / kg
FORCE: 6 / 2,7
TOURATECH: 7,8 / 3,57
HEPCO&BECKER: 14 / 6,3
ACD: 11 / 5
ALT RIDER: 9,2 / 4,17
RIDEONADV: 13 / 5,9
SW MOTECH:
RUMBUX: 12,6 / 5,7
As to the weight of the Rumbux, the weight of the unit, complete upper and lower with all hardware, (most of the big bolts replace shorter OEM ones), is 23 lbs. The lower bash frame w/skid plate and all hardware is 13 lbs and the upper bash frame is 10 lbs.

Well got her all put together this afternoon. Pretty easily done.





I did find that I did a number on the oem 'crash guard'. Cracked it completely across both ends:

Luckily it's the less important right side.

Now I've got tomorrow off work, but I'm hesitant to test it, as its the biggest hunting week of the year here, and all my favorite roads are in hunting areas.

OTOH, the Super Ténéré is one of the coolest, least heat-intrusive bikes I've ever owned, and that surprised me given it's literally fully-faired and has two pistons the size of coffee cans banging up around in there. Even when we had temps well into the 100's this past summer I found it comfortable, fan on or not. And that's with full ATGATT or just blue jeans... Doesn't matter.

Besides, even if someone finds what little heat blows on their leg when the fan is on uncomfortable, just how long is it on? 30 seconds? How long is the stoplight?

Crikey! It's a motorcycle... Not a limo.

Ditto for Florida. You wanna cook? Sit at a red light on 95 degree heat and have the fan on a VFR start funneling heat your way - that was warm. The Tenere? No worries whatsoever.
