I was looking at the big plug in the front right side just above the exhaust sensor around 10 o'clock from the sensor. What is the purpose of having a hole in your engine plugged by plastic?

I can take a picture right now as I just put the bike away close to the wall so my 5 year old doesn't open that plug up.
Look at my post again I added pics and Anticyclone posted a schematic/drawing of the location..

Heres what mine looks like-









Mine is exactly the same as yours. I did not know it was below the first casing. I didn't see it being so dark under there and i did not have a light on it.

Thanks for the quick pics as now i know exactly where to find it.

It's so rare that anybody has an actual problem with a Tenere that we jump at the chance to help.

You may have read elsewhere, but let me reiterate, don't get too picky about the level of oil in the sight glass. It's a dry sump engine, and as such oil gets moved around a lot. Best thing to do is fill with the recommended amount and not worry about it unless the low oil light comes on.

YMMV of course.

Can't help with your dilemma, but Rumbux will be offering a 3-Part Crashbar/Skid Plate system for the 1190 Adventure in the near future. You could be covered either way.

ktm = big $ to buy, big maintenance, big $ for parts

yamaha = small dollars to buy, no maintenance, get parts anywhere... cheap

Drive shaft (double sided swing arm too) is the key. This is my first bike with one and for big tours, including paved, unpaved, chip-sealed, etc. roads, it's awesome. Plus reliable - FJR proven! Traction control works incredibly well as do the ABS brakes. Such a solid bike - weight is carried well - makes for great fun in so many conditions not the least being twisties. And great farkle opps - my priorities were bars (and risers), exhaust and pegs. If you're riding an XT660 now, this makes perfect sense if you're looking to go longer (and faster) in more comfort - with something you know about - peace of mind.
