I seem to recall one of the posters had issues with the Carbon version blowing through the carbon , all of them seem to agree they are LOUD.
Have had the Two brothers basic model for about years now. no issues at all but for the fact that it is a bit noisy ,

I will sell the old bike to partially finance the new purchase. It's not worth a huge amount, but with all the equipment for touring it should be a reasonable attractive package.

Adding Oil?

What is the trick to adding oil to this machine? I've done a few oil changes on this bike now and can not seem to come up with a fast, clean, efficient way to get the oil in. I have the Altrider engine guards which don't help...

I'm thinking I need to have a short spout that fits on the oil bottle. Haven't had to add oil to the bike in between changes (ala BMW), but if I did, it would be messy. Using long funnels and host of weird angles. Seems if the oil fill opening was a little closer to horizontal, live would be so much better.

What am I missing?

Who wants to buy a Super Tenere? CHEAP!

I use a funnel with a flexible spout and loop a long piece of wire from the funnel to around my handlebar to hold it in place. Not exactly this funnel but close enough.

Man... I'd love to have an older Tenere. Too bad getting it here would cost an arm and a leg.

Look into the oil fill and see if a 'tip of a funnel' is not in there. This happened to mine and it was during the third oil change when I found it a tip of a funnel in that area.

Use a 45 or 90* copper 1/2" fitting with a funnel that you can cut the end off. Make the end so it is tight to the fitting. Find out the best position and wrap some black electrical tape on the fitting and funnel.
This works great for me and worked on Altrider bars and Givi.

How about a piece of thin cardboard (food packaging type) about the size of a credit card, rolled to fit the filler hole. Then just tilt it up a bit and pour the oil onto it and let it drain into the sump.

Heidenau tyre pressures.

Some of you may remember, last year, I contacted Heidenau about the 36psi max on the side of their rear tyres and they told me they were changing the mold to read 42psi. Well they did, but they changed it to 44psi instead.

I was running my seriously loaded bike at 42psi and getting differential wear. The side blocks were wearing faster than the rest. I had a similar problem with the front.

Since changing the rear, I am now using 36 up front and 45 in the rear and the wear is now even. The bike is set for touring as opposed to scratching but it works fine for me.

Howdy, any idea if this is a Yamaha factory seat, on this bike?

Thinking about heading up to Watkins Glen for the US Vintage Grand Prix, Sep 6-9. Has anyone 1) been to this event 2) know if it is Moto-primitive camping friendly? I'll be riding from DC.

Thank you.

The landscape dominates the sensors as you view the images.



But your memories are still dominated by the recall of constant hazard.



I can't get my head around how this beast takes such a beating with nary a whimper. It just takes it in stride.

This is a Super T modded to participate in the Pharaons Rally. The guy is Francesco Catanese a enduro pilot. He's nearly 2 metres tall.. so he needs a high seat
