A Japanese cousin to the AT...Super Tenere

A colleague from work brought in his 1990 Yamama Super Tenere XTZ 750 the other day and we had a photo op. Definately a few similarities. I believe they were imported into Canada for a couple years but very few were sold. Rarely you see them up here...and I don't believe the USA got them at all. Europe on the other hand is where they were sold by the thousands.

Both of those bikes still sell well used. Nice machines. Lots of folks are waiting for a modern update from both mfgs.

remus for RD07

I'm looking for an Oval remus pipe to fit my RD07. does it have to be AT specific? then I could find some panniers racks that are symetrical and not have the r pannier look like it belongs to the bike next to me!!
do you know of anyone selling one?

second question: I'd love to have both low beams on at the same time but then you have to change the glass, do I also loose the H4? the high beams are phenomenal on the bike. Not sure what to do. Has anyone made the change?

I got a Laser Produro on mine. Its oval, rather small and AT specific with a nice sound, not too loud, not too much loss compared to stock, 2kg less.

Easiest way is to find the lights of an RD07a on ebay, they are designed to be both on. Others just connected the second light with the stock pre-RD07a glass. Only some RD03s sold in Europe were non-H4.

Cheers, Andy

thanks Andy,

So, the RD07a lights have high and low beam in both? sounds like an easy swap.
ebay europe may have them...I'm in US ( oregon). Let me know if you spot some ( if you don't mind), may be i'd send it to my mother in Belgium, and pick up later

As for the exhaust. i 'd like to find some place in US to buy from ( cost +++) if at all possible.
Or if any of the inmates has one for sale, ( used OVAL exhaust pipe)., i'd love to hear from you

greetings
Alain
