Just about. I need to stop and pick up break fluid after work. Once I have that I can put it all back together. The speed sensor was pretty filthy, so I cleaned everything in there real good and will have it put back together tonight.

I have noticed heat off the left side, from the radiator... You're going to get some heat no matter what bike you are on. My air cooled Victory can be down right uncomfortable in stop and go traffic at 90°F. I have baked on goldswigs, and KTMs.

If you don't want to deal with a little engine heat, drive a car.

Did I mention mine ran cooler after the reflash?

I'm always a bit perplexed when folks mention that they think the Super Tenere puts out heat they feel is uncomfortable. I've owned mine since the summer of 2011 and I've always thought it was one of the *COOLEST* mounts, heat-wise, of any bike I've ever owned (dozens upon dozens since 1970). I have never, ever felt any excessive heat coming from anywhere on the bike, regardless of conditions...

And note, I live in South Texas, and in the near 30,000 miles I've had it I've ridden in 100+ degree weather on numerous occasions... In stop-and-go traffic, too, with it that hot outside. 95% of the time I ride in Diamond Gussett "Defender" kevlar-lined jeans and as I mentioned, I've never noticed any heat I can recall. Many of the other water-cooled bikes have put off massive amounts of heat, especially if the fans came on... And some of the air-cooled ones have been as bad.

To me the Super Tenere is one of the most comfortable bikes I've ever owned, and that includes its *heat index*...

The vibe thing too. I'd really like to try one that owners say vibrate. I feel nothing in
the pegs and seat and a little in the bars.

Did I mention that mine vibrates less after the Gen 2 re-flash?

And I just LOVED my weirdly sprung, oddly damped stock forks, along with my undersprung and underdamped stock rear shock until I got the Stoltec treatment to the forks and the Penske rear shock, both with proper spring rates...

And did I mention how much I LOVED the stock windscreen until I got the Parabellum?

Well. T mode is perfect when the pavement is not so good. I use it in town and two up all the time. LOVE it, but when on highway or nice road, S mode is on.
