It does look good (and everyone says it handles off road amazingly well), but one of the advantages to the S10 over the T800XC, F800GS, and 990ADV in my book was the more standard front tire size (for more tire variety), and lack of tubes.


Tubeless rims for BMW and KTM are just a phone call away.

Probably I can go a little further than the 34mm but I was afraid the straps broke, I did lot of power. I dont know if my springs can be the reason to that difference.
Anyway, the bike is finished and Saturday is going to be the great day Im really anxious to try it, it looks sooooo god!

Many thanks again!

Yamaha should have put 21" on stock. But if U want get more clearence beteween wheel and heders pipes u should change front fork like he did.

Butter, it's not just for Teneres. Okay, maybe margarine for the Tenere and real butter for the BMW.
Either way a tube and tire irons are now standard equipment.

Yeah, this is the best option but veeeeery expensive!, you must change: forks, hub, rotors, front guard, the parts where the forks are fixed, (I don't know the name in english)....

The 21" wheel just looks right on your Tenere. I have never liked the looks of these large dual sports with the goofy little rims on the front so they can have street type tires fitted.....especially the blue ones
Agree!!

Come on Mike!, now with this Rumbux un your bike you need a 21 front wheel to go to the end of the world!

Im 1,78m. With this setup the standard seat was a bit too high, so I took it to a upholstery to reduce the high. Tomorrow Im going to collect it and see.

Concerning to the skid plate issue, hope tomorrow the manufacturer find a solution to it.

Maybe a solution for the 21" tyre

Hi all. After reading all your comments i decide to write to you to tell you my thoughts. By the way my current ride is a Yamaha XT660Z Tenere. Now i want to buy the XT1200Z after reading for how good this bike its. But here in Cyprus they don't know that bike (XT660Z) they are no so many maybe 10 or 20 bikes. And i'm trying to sell it but its very difficult.
Anw back to the subject, i made a little research for if we can manage to have a clearance for the 21" wheel. For the last 2 nights i was looking the designs of the bash plates. All of the they have extra lenght because of the oil filter. If i remember correct someone recommended oil filter relocation kit. But the only relocation kit that exist in the market for bikes it's for an internal oil filter no the usual external one.
Now in my research i discover some kits that maybe they can help you all that make that 21" wheel mod.
1. This one is used for the snowmobile and fits for the same thread that the S10 use and you can find it here. The engine its also Yamaha:
http://www.ulmerracing.com/
http://www.ulmerracing.com/Complete.pdf

2. The second one again it fit to the same thread as the S10 but on the other end you must attach a normal oil filter that used in cars:
http://shop.perma-cool.com/10616-Oil...?categoryId=-1
http://shop.perma-cool.com/media/300009%20rev13.pdf

So with this method i believe you can rearrange the position of the oil filter and you can modified the bash plate to come closer to the engine and have more clearance for the wheel. And also you don't need to remove your bash plate every time you want to replace your oil filter.
Now i don't know if this practical but i hope it can help you.
Sorry for my bad English and i hope sooner or later to find the proper money to buy and be part of this group.

I realize this is the last thing in this picture I should be interested in given the sheer aswesomeness of the rest of that bike, but what windscreen is that?

Here you are some pics from the new metallic brake lines.
My dealer decides to commercialize a hole setup to replace the OEM plastic lines, so he ordered some with the link on top of the front fender and others who are one in each side. I have these last ones. They worked very well.

I'm surprised such a light and fragile bike managed to bend it's rim. I think melted margarine is what you a looking at.

I have to bite my tounge or I'm a hypocrite. I was surprised. If we had been hauling ass that's one thing.
I was determined to finish a ride without needing Woody's afterward. I had my son who had not ridden
in a long time, a KTM who uses 1/4 of the throttle and a BMW on it's maiden off road ride.
No records were being set. It was bent in three spots. One was the obvious leaker.

If it had been the rear wheel I would have blamed it on the extra HP.

I think we can solve the 21" clearance problem with the bash plate with oil filter relocation...
For almost 2 nights i was searching and finding specs for the oil filter that S10 uses.
If we relocate the oil filter we can get more space for the 21" wheel if we modified the bash plate off course as close to the engine.
If you need any info i will gladly to share with you..
