I hope so too...
I am so worried that I f... up something in the valve adjustment that I never adjusted them since I own the bike ....about 60000 km?
No mechanics worthed trusting that I know of around here (somewhere in central america)
...but the bike goes fine with oil change intervals of around 10000 km

My Superten

Hi, this is my first post on ADV.

This is my Yamaha XTZ 750 Super Ténéré -95. I was testing out the luggage panniers prior to a 14 days tour around Europe this summer. I hope to find the time write a trip report during the Christmas holidays.

Sorry Peke, but the trip is already completed; I meant to say "past summer". We went from Sweden to Poland, Czech, Austria, Italy, Austria (again), Germany, Denmark, back to Sweden.

Here is a teaser:

State side Super Tenere

Anyone out there that can hook me up with micro fiche for a 1991
Super tenere? I did try the web search, but haven't had much luck.
I could really use my own copy, but would settle for a link where I
could go and punch up a part search.

Could be difficult to find. A lot of ppl are asking for a online partlist.
If ya need parts for the engine u could take the early TDM but mostly the XTZ750 is not in de list of supported bikes.

Just have to spend all and mean all your time like you have
no other wants or worrys but to find a gray market bike.
I spent all winter last year to find a Africa twin for myself and a Super
Tenere for my brother who can't type his name on a key board.
I found both! Oh and the DR Big belongs to my other bother!
