Super Tenere runs tubeless - how to repair

Whilst our comrades in the north of Australia turn their Super's into submarines, the south of our great continent continues to have great riding conditions........and the potential for flats.

Here is a 'How to repair' from Yamaha Australia factory mechanic, Darren Thompson. A really nice helpful bloke.

thanks edog - does one really have to REPLACE a tyre after a puncture?
I thought a repair on the running surface was fine as shown in the video and for a side wall puncture a repair from the inside has to be done by a tyre repair shop?

Do any of you guys use these valve caps (or the mechanical ones that show green when pressure fine and yellow/red when under inflated)?

I think most people will say REPLACE, but then most of them will also say, "ride it home (cautiously), or until you can get it replaced".

Micatech bags

I haven't seen any pics of Micatech bags on the S10 yet, but found these mockups on their Flikr site. These pics are not on their web site yet, but the bags are;

DCStrom, for some reason those micatech bags just look ungainly or too big or something on the super Tenere. I've looked at them on other bikes as well, and although I like the bags themselves, the looks just don't do it for me. I like the Jesse bags, but at the present the Trax cases in black like on Greg's thread are the leading ones for me.

Yeah, I feel the same way. The ones I've seen on other bikes look bulky too. Dunno if it's the swoopy styling or what.

No mention of S10 bags on the Jesse site yet - last time I talked to them they were looking for a bike to measure up. They ought to have found one by now, if it was on their radar at all... Might be time I checked back with them. None of the luggage I've seen so far for the S10 really work for me, for one reason or another...

What are your feelings on the Givi Trekkers? I have been looking for luggage and these did not look too bad.. lol

I will be riding solo and don't need a real huge case, but would like it to blend in somewhat.

I like the look of them - but they are like the Yamaha/BMW genuine cases, in that they are plastic with alloy sheet bonded to them to make them look like alloy. Plastic vs alloy bags both have their pros and cons, but I fail to see the point of mixing the two materials, unless it's for cosmetic reasons. And cosmetics is the last thing I care about (I own a V-Strom).

That said, maybe they have some sound engineering that takes advantage of the properties of both materials, and they seem to have some nice features. But I wouldn't pull the trigger on them before I see some close up and read some reviews.

I like the size of the Trekkers but just don't like the looks too much. They remind me of the BMW 800ST bags. I do kind of like the engine guards by Givi though.

Have you seen a price on the engine guards? The pic from Dcstrom is the first one I have seen.

Those are the Pilot cases in the mock up pics. The Pilots are 23" long and 17" tall. The Micatech V2's are 18" in length and 15.5" tall. A very big difference in how they'll look on the bike.

I'm going with the V2's. 8" deep case for the left side and 10" deep for the right using the SW Motech Quick Release set up. Two tone paint; black cases with gray doors.

Nice cases. A friend of mine had them on his 1200 GS and loved them.
