I don't think you can that sleek secondary tank in the pillion seat area. That would have me interested. The rest is mainly optics / decals and some parts you can get in better versions from 3rd parties. Or what am I missing?

So for those who know both bikes, how does a TDM 900 compares to the S10. How is braking on the tdm (abs) versus the S10 (don't ask me why ).
PS : I know the tdm is a road bike, but can be found for cheap and at the moment it's a strong plus.
I rode a friends TDM several times back in the spring before getting my S10. I thought it was an awesome bike - as others have noted it is a little more nimble - it turns in quicker. It sits a little lower. Brakes are nowhere near as good but for its vintage they are fine and they never bothered me compared to my Vstrom even before those were upgraded to GSXR calipers. If you can get an S1 - it is far better but the TDM packs some bang for the buck. I think my Wee Strom packed some pretty good value too and with slightly wider bars it handled a lot like the S10.

That "sleek secondary tank" is one that has only been shown on the one-off "concept" World Crosser show bike... Nobody other than someone in Yamaha's R&D department can get one of those unless they fab it up themselves.

OTOH, in Europe Yamaha *DOES* sell a model they call a "World Crosser"... Only thing is that it's nothing more than a standard Super Ténéré with "mainly optics / decals and some parts you can get better versions from 3rd parties"...

You didn't specify *WHICH* "World Crosser" you were inquiring about...

But sTE610vE's question about the World Crosser parts was *BEFORE* that link was posted, or the concept even mentioned, and the picture he posted along with his question about the parts was of the *PRODUCTION* "World Crosser" - not the concept bike...

Yes, all I really want to know is:

1. Has anyone heard if the World Crosser accessory parts (the ones they sell in europe, not the "unobtainium" of the concept bike) will be available in the US?

2. If not has anyone ordered a kit from Europe and what did it cost? I understand what it is and what it isn't.

Thanks for the responses

I have no idea if the Yamaha OEM "World Crosser" parts will be available in the USA at sometime in the future...

Nor have I ever ordered a Yamaha OEM "kit" or other "World Crosser" parts from anybody...

However, I have ordered some Euro-parts for my Super Ténéré from these folks...

http://www.yamabits.co.uk/yamaha-mot...cessories.html

And their service has be great. Parts take about 10 days or so to make the transit, so take that into account.

Just FYI...

A few questions for you, Dal...


1. Did you get your RUMBUX "go-cart frame", yet?

2. Have you installed/tried to install it, yet?

3. If you answered yes to the above two...How in the f^&k did you remove the M10 bolt near the sidestand?


I'm about ten seconds away from from welding a tire-iron to that sumbitch, and having a powerlifter try to twist-it-off...

1.) Yes, I got my RumBux skid plate in from Eric (note: I did *NOT* get the upper frame, just the skid plate(.

2.) No, I haven't installed it yet as I haven't had any difficult off-road excursion lately. Just some gravel road and simple two-track, jeep trail stuff. Probably won't install it until the scheduled Big Bend jaunt in October.

3.) However, I have had that bolt loosened up before - oddly enough to loctite it and torque it to spec. IIRC mine was tight, but not "welding a tire iron to that sumbitch" tight... At least I don't remember it being anything exceptional.

Sorry...

I'm doing at least one 10 days trip every year. 90% off road from over 2000 to 3000km, witch is quite a lot in the type of tracks we do.
But my dream in a couple of years is something more or less like this



Yes, I know there is a lot of electronic in our S10 but unfortunately all the new bikes are more or less like this. But I’m truly confident with Yamaha reliability.

You are correct, Sir. And the bikes that Dallara is referring to are the ultimate in irony because they come with the OEM sump-mounted bash plate.

Change the windshield and flatten the seat, then go. I did 10,000 miles in June and would pick this over my FJR for such long distances. As much as I loved my 2 FJRs, the Tenere seating is more upright and it's a better all-rounder.

I'm watching to see how many Super Teneres turn up in this years Iron Butt competition, doing 11,000 miles in 11 days.
