Clutch Slave Cylinder

OK inmates.. my S10 appears to be leaking oil at the clutch master cylinder. The area under the cylinder gets 'wet" after a long days run. A bit of a degrease and it is gone.

Anybody had this before?

All the bolts/connections are tight.

I have just fitted the Yamaha supplied (and loaded with oil) oil foamed filter and i am starting to wonder if the excess filter oil is finding its way onto the hydraulic line and slowly dripping down to the engine casing.

Any comments or experiences?

Bike has done approx 6000K

Thanks JaumeV.

What a beautiful bike you got!!!

I did send an e-mail to Cedric.
Excited to get the hands of my bike, hopefully I do not get the dreaded handlebar vibes but if an ECU flash should help a lot plus you get a bit better power delivery.
Will keep you posted.

Anyone know what kind of oil it comes from the factory with, brake in oil?
Probably best to dump it straight away and put proper brake in oil.

But they seem to crack right about where the spoke sits.

I think maybe D.I.D. had a bit of a think about their rims and tried to mitigate some of the possible problems.

Only problem is they didn't get pluric to test them.
Woody's did charge $100 more to fix this Beemer rim over the Tenere.
Proof once again of the 'cost of ownership' thing.

You were riding that Beemer when that poor rim was damaged weren't you?

You might want to stop running into shit.

Not that time. But I did get the new guy on the ride today let me try his bike.





I also got to drive this one down the hill after the owner was done dropping it.
I felt bad for him. That's a big bike to have to pick up several times on a hill.






Speaking of, this hill got steeper over the hump. Loose, little ledges and probably the first time
I thought maybe a lower first gear wouldn't be so bad. Then it just went into chug mode and
went right up. The GS rider later told me he didn't think a Tenere could make it. Changing
misconceptions one ride at a time.

Question Tenere or not?

So this thread started in Feb. of 2008 so forgive me guys and gals that I don't read all the postings (over 1000 pages!). I might retire my 1996 K1100RS soon but looking for a replacement. In the running is a V-Strom, the Tenere or the F800GT or maybe another suggestion. I have seen many a V-Strom out there but looking at the Tenere is new for me. I am not interested in too much off road and it has to have the ability to have highway pegs installed. (Broke my right leg and I have to straighten it out on long rides). So to those who own or have owned what is your take on it? (I did read a few posts involving discussion on vibrations and not having a good out come.)

BTW, new to the site, howdy all :)

Exciting times since I will pick up my new XT within 1 hour and say goodbye to my beloved DL650 that I had for 6 years.
Read a test in the new UK SuperBike magazine in a comparo with Honda`s Crossrunner (or what it is called) and the Triumph Explorer that they really liked the XT but choose the Explorer, maybe since their mag is called SuperBike? Also got a hint that Yamaha probably will come out with a triple soon which will be in the R1 and an Adventure bike rumors or not it is interesting. Now off to the bike shop!

To sum up the last 1,000 pages it's a bunch of bored happy Tenere owners.
NO break downs. Some loose spokes, weeping fork seals misc personal adjustments
that's about it.

You have to realize this is a Tenere thread and owners tend to praise whatever they ride.
Tenere people tend to put this bike on their top favorite list. I generalize, but I've also followed
the full thread and own one due to all the positive owner feedback.

Adjusting rear suspension rebound

Is there a special tool to help turn the grey knob at the bottom of the rear shock? It's too hard to turn by hand, not to mention that I can't get my hand in there. Help.

The general procedure is to put the bike on the centerstand, lay down beside it with feet facing rearward, and reach in there from the bottom... the rebound adjuster is right above the dogbones. I have big hands, but have no issue at all getting a good grip on the adjusting ring. It should turn relatively easily; if not, your shock has a problem. As motorcycle suspension adjustments go, this is one of the easier ones.
