I can get 50 of them on Amazon for $20 +S&H. I only need three.

They're the molex pins needed to use in the special 3 and 4 pin auxiliary connectors on the bike. I purchased the 3 pin connector but it didn't come with the pins.
Look locally for a place that does car stereo installations. The techs usually have a handful rattling in the bottom of a box somewhere.

Yeah, I just punched myself in the groin and fulfilled the $20 quota with other unnecessary junk .

I picked up the 4 pin connector for the other auxiliary plug and another weather tight 12v cigarette lighter outlet so I can wire a constant-live plug.

That's just the tank bag. Scrapped the OEM bash plate and touring windscreen too.

I was just so happy the dealer had a Tenere available back in the preorder days I just
told them to "Load it up with what ever accessories you have" and I'd be back to pick it up.

Slowly I've learned the hard way of the other better options out there. I still have the factory
bags big enough to hold a snicker bar and a couple T shirts.

I think you can ask for samples directly from Molex. All you have to do is pay for the shipping (typically). I do that at work all the time. Most electronics manufacurers have a sample program... Every time I protoype something I request samples. Maybe it's because they are my vendor, but I would guess anyone could do it.

Just for the record...

If he's using any plugs that plug directly into any Yamaha factory connectors then they won't be Molex plugs/connectors, or male or female pin sets.

Most all the Jap bikes use Hitachi, Sumitomo, Mitsubishi, Furakawa, Yazaki, etc. connectors...

You can see a whole bunch of different ones just by clicking around on this page - http://www.easternbeaver.com/Main/El...onnectors.html - and most use proprietary pins.

Just FYI...

Note to self: The Pro-Taper Raptor bend will not work in concert with 2" Rox pivoting risers. At least not with the stock brake and clutch lines . Ah the curse of having a long torso and stubby little T-Rex arms.

EDIT: Which is a damn shame, because the standing position was freakin' sweet...

I think you guys here in the USA with an ECUnleashed re-flash might find it interesting... Note, you've got to act quick!


Please note, this is all the information I have at this time... You know what I know, and if you have any questions you might want to contact ECUnleashed directly (http://ecunleashed.com/), and right away.

Funny, I got a very similar response:

It's easy, just order 3 seat bumpers and swap them with the 3 toward the rear of the S10 seat. 22W-24741-00-00.

This thread explains it.

haha... I just am not seeing an immediate need to change a bunch of the ergos... I flattened the tilt of the seat which did wonders... $7 worth it, for sure. I added the madstad screen adjustment bracket which should come with the bike.

It's good to see that Yamaha basically got this bike dialed in, right out of the gate. We've had so much snow lately in April in Denver that I haven't been able to ride it much... I'm stuck on 700 miles and in DC this week on business. This weekend, I'm riding for sure. Performance Cycle has my new Shoei waiting for me.

I have a few more accessories coming in as well... :)
