Thanks AJ, he's decided on trying to keep it and make a rat bike out of it. Know of any front ends that will fit? He's thinking R1.

front end

hi and a speedy recovery to the crash pilot.
I once rode with a friend who had a fzr 100 front end in his mkI/3vd TDM. He used the triple clamps as well, the original tubes are thinner I think.
I rebuilt my mkII/4tx to original specs after i totalled the front end, because I like the long suspension travel of the original forks.
but then again - I'm just a pig ;)

Glückauf and ride safe
Ralf

thanks for the wonderful photos

One of the best motorcycles ever build !!! And one one of the most underestimated bikes as well.

The versatility of an enduro combinded with the power and stiffness of an onroad-bike. The frame is aluminium ! The brakes are from R1 Supersport.

This bike is the nightmare of the streetbikes on curvy winding road.

I like it very much !!!!!

PLEASE post a lot more photos.

Here are a TDM i had a couple of years ago, pretty nice bike for touring, -03 model sold brand new in -05, i bought it in the spring of -07with 3400 km on the speedo and put another 6000 km on it before i sold it the same year, was just not my kind of motocycle.

Nice engine but i think i should have some moore tork in the low end. Changeing/shifting gear, up and down all the time, isn´t what i want. No tork at all under 5000 rpm. The bike handles really well and the brkes from the early R1 does it job very well.

If Yamaha just would to build that Super tenere, this engine rebulit with bettter low end tork, tubular steelframe, 18" rear, 21" in front, 180 kg and so on... ......yummie My god what at sweet ride it could be, come on Yamaha. GoGoGo!
