If you do not think to drive off-road 90%, rather put MT21, Pirelli, much more applicable for asphalt, and "good working" offroad.

Touratech/Kahedo Seats

Has anyone tried these aftermarket seats?

http://shop.touratech.com/comfort-se...nere-high.html



I would like some more padding under my backside and wouldn't mind losing the hump for the pillion as well.

If anyone has fitted one of these seats (this is the "High" version), how much taller does it make the bike.

Thanks

I know several riders who got this seat, some thru Off-the-road, some from Kahedo directly and now also available thru Touratech. They're all the same, that is Kahedo, but pricing differs: from Kahedo and OTR they're cheaper, but you got to exchange your original seat or pay 150,- euro's extra; from Touratech they're a bit more expensive but you can keep your orignal seat. Reviews from all riders are positive, more comfortable on long runs and flat is a benefit on offroad ridin' . This high seat differs 4cm's from original seatheight(895mm non-ABS), so it'll give you a seatheight of around 899/900mm, pretty high...

Hi everyone!
The last couple of months I have become very interested in buying a Tenere XT660Z!
I really like this bike, and I would like to get rid of my BMW F650GS Twin '08, that had quite a few problems till now.
The last one was some days ago, fuel pump and relais gone, cost more than 300€ if you buy OEM parts.
I bought an aftermarket pump for 50€ and found on Ebay a used oem relais for 45€, so it cost me "only" 95€...
I also like the Tenere because it is much more dirt oriented.
The only problem is that I am a shorty, 169cm, that is about 5' 7'', and I believe that the seat hight of the Tenere (895mm) will be too high for me..especially in the city traffic. The BMW's seat high is 820mm with the normal seat, which is perfect for me!
So the question is, what is the minimum seat height one can get, with a lowering kit, a different seat, or removing some foam, without messing too much with the bikes geometry, the riding comfort etc...?
Is there anyone who has lowered his bike, how much, and with what cons?
Thanks!

It all depends on which Tenere you´ll buy: the standard Tenere is 895mm in seatheight, the ABS Tenere is only 860mm high, with also lower suspension, front160mm, back 150mm(the standard Tenere 210mm front, 200mm back). And there's also the possibility to lower the bike(seat, suspension etc..), you can customize it to your liking. Good luck, it's a mighty fine bike!
Greetz, Hans.

Hi guys and thanks for the answers!
I know that there are lowering kits around, and some low seats, but I was hoping that someone could give me his personal experience.
From a small research I did, the ABS Tenere is not imported in Greece. I was looking the UK site as well, and I did not see the ABS model available..Is this right? And if so, in which countries is it sold? By the way, can the ABS be turned off, for off road riding, or is it always on?

Hi guys,

I have installed a gps tracker in my 660 Té and left in the motorcycle for more than 1 week, after that the battery was drained, so I take out and went to Yamaha for a complete recharge. The tracker is not in the bike anymore.

After that, I was unable to ride for 1 week more, and then, had a small ride of 50km to charge a little bit.

But, the engine light is always on. I went to Yamaha again, and used the Diagnostic tool, but we didn't found any fault code.

I came back home, and discover that, when I put the high been front light, the engine fault light go off, but when I put low been light, the light pops out again....

Has anyone a suggestion?

Tks

I don't know if your bike is still new, but if so this is something your dealer should fix for you I think
But a short circuit seems pretty likely too me, you can check the high/low beam switch and wiring very easy, this is a good place to start. There is also the well know connector/ regulator issue, but in that case the high/low beam should not make any difference I guess
