ACD I couldn't find the information for the Tenere but I am guessing someone can add it.

I am not hunting for a skid plate that will not that will not break but I am hunting for the best protection for the money. Sounds like more than one person has spent $400+ for skid plates that did not protect their Tenere.

I like the RumBux for its brute strength and maybe a place to stretch my legs. I like the H-B for protection of the catalytic converter. I want to see the finished ACD plate before I make my decision.

Which plate has the best oil filter protection? Which plate has the space for a longer oil filter (not that I plan to do this but someone might) ?

To the best of my knowledge there are currently *TWO* skid plates available that mount only to the frame - the one from Jaxon at RideOnADV that Simmons1 mentions above *AND* the RumBux. There is also the ACD that Jaumev is testing but at the moment it is only a prototype and I believe is *NOT* yet available for sale.

The Hepco & Becker does, indeed, mount on the frame at the back... but so do many others, like for instance the AltRider. However, just like those others the Hepco & Becker mounts to the engine cases at the front - *NOT* the frame. As such a severe hit with the Hepco & Becker could result in damaged engine cases, etc.

Once again, these are the *ONLY* three skid plates out there currently for the Super Tenere that do *NOT* mount in any way to the bike's engine, and mount *ONLY* to the frame:

1.) RumBux - from South Africa, and available from ADVridr member "Dirty Bike"

2.) RideOnADV - from Jaxon in good ol' Texas right here in the USA - http://www.rideonadv.com/

3.) ACD - from Spain (corrected from error of saying Italy earlier), but currently unavailable for sale, currently testing, and only in the prototype stage

IIRC every single other skid plate you can buy for the Super Tenere mounts in some way, shape, or form to the engine cases and/or sump.

Hope this helps!

Right, I hope the ACD (made in Spain, not in Italy) could be ready in a month aprox. Is currently a testing prototype.

I opened a thread with all skid plates list and specs, it could be easier to find the information. Please help to actualize: http://advrider.com/forums/showpost....63&postcount=1

I'll be first in line for the ACD when it goes on sale Jaumev. It looks to have the best protection of all of them.

I'll keep you informed of developments.
There is quite a few things to do. In the last test we saw some vulnerable areas to be strengthened. They are also working on a material to absorb the shocks, adjusting the filter area, improving ground clearance and refining the overall design....

Looking forward to the finished product. All we need for you to do now is re-design the side cover protection bars.

Local Yamaha dealer has a Tenere marked down to $12,999. That's what's written on the tag, not after any haggling.

Good price?

And for those that are interested, and live a bit further south than Iowa, I know where there is a brand-new, sitting-on-the-showroom-floor, never-demoed, never-started Raven (black) Super Tenere for similar money in South Texas.

PM me if interested and I'll put ya' in touch with the dealer.

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Pretty good - my dealer in Romney WV has $12795 as their "no haggle" price. But probably not worth the trip for you to save $200. Unless you want an excuse to ride WV
