Yea, I think I will need one

Okay, I will start from left to right

1st black switch turns power on or off for the plug on the left which is always powered (wired through the fuse box)

2nd black switch turns power on or off for the plug on the right which is ignition powered through the relay below the fuse box to the right (it's mounted at a 45 degree angle, see it in the previous photo)

The two green LED's are ON when the plugs are powered

3rd switch (red) powers my accessory lights and the red LED is on when powered (obviously )

4th switch (red) powers my radar detector, in case I want to switch it off after I'm stopped by a cop

The GPS is always powered since I might want to use it while the bike is not running

Channel locks or filter strap to get it off and tighten.
Let us know how it goes for you Goldie05. I'm not due for a while longer.

It is easy to remove the Alt Rider Skid Plate. No wrenches needed now.

Oil changes are Easy and Clean.

lol!

I got "5/16-25 Self-Locking Nut Plate, Floating" (And rivets 1/8 countersunk 1/8-1/4) from www.pegasusautoracing.com

The Bolts "socket flat head, stainless steel 18-8, 5/16" from www.boltdepot.com


I went to SAE from Metric because I could not find "floating" metric nut plates. No biggie. The bolts are the same "rating" as the ones supplied with the skid plate.

I "drilled out" the "little bracket up front" to use the larger bolts (someone forgot to order the smaller hardware. Said Fcuk it, and made everything one size).



Works perfect!!

Twin Mufflers
Hi all,
Some very nice photos of some magnificant scernery.
As this is a site for people to show off there bikes, thought I'd show you all my new twin set up.
Have done a few mods PCV, K & N Filter & our mufflers.
So far have got a 12-15% increase over stock.
Here also is the video link, http://youtu.be/FZzqqhXbVj8

Wow, this is really impressive! I don't even own a Tenere, but seeing this set-up puts another log on the fire. I have a demo ride scheduled for next week. I'm down to three bikes on my list, Super Tenere, a KTM super enduro, and the Multistrada. But the Tenere is way ahead just because of all the mods and accessories available for it. I can't wait for my ride to see what the rave is about.
You should create an installation guide (and include your cell # for electronically challenged folks like myself ) for others that would find this set-up ideal. If I get a Tenere expect a pm asking for more details on this set-up, !

May your bike always be not eponymous...

Thumb S10 twin mufflers

Hi Jaumev,
To be honest, I liked the bike how it was even in standard trim.
EG: I know the Ducati has shit loads more power , but how would it hold up fully loaded on a curragated road for 2000klm, etc.
So I always buy a bike to suit what I think I need.
I must like the look of it as well.
I also take into account repare cost, services (Over her in Aus, the Ducati dealers charge like you own a Ferrari
My mates have 1200GS nice bikes, but I felt more at home on the Yamaha.
As I was after a bike (when fully loaded) allows you to pass a truck 50mts long with ease (100kph top gear stuff with plenty of Torque not having to change down & rev the crap out of it, & can do 1000klm in a day with ease) this suited my needs.
As far as improves the bike, yes it has made it even more enjoyable to ride (Even with the single sports muffler) But the twin set up looks more balance & sounds more off-beat note like a twin & Deeper, it now seems to have endless Torque.
Chappy.
