Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z Focused Thread

Since the immature lot likes to make the ST "big thread" all about their need for attention rather than stay on topic, we'll try another thread that does stay on topic - at least until they traipse over here to muck this one up.

Has anyone done a PC-8 install on a 2014/2015 ES model and if so, where did you mount it?

Pouring over ADVrider postings/threads about the ST has led me to attempt to register on this forum yamahasupertenere.com of which I followed the instructions to send an email to the administrator to be verified before I could use the forum. Maybe I'm just impatient but I haven't received any communication.

Looking forward to a lot of expert advice, thanks.

Several people have complained recently about the slow acceptance process.
Give it a few days and you will be allowed to join. Lots of ex BMW owners in the
Tenere crowd. Always room for one more.

The site owner was out of town for a bit, the approvals should be quicker now.

Go for the ES, not that much more $ and totally worth it.

Tank Ring

Does anybody know if the tank ring is the same on a 2013 as it is on a 2015? I have an SW Motech tank bag and need a ring. Wherever I look to buy one, they don't specify the newer model.

Question What's the difference?

You mention on the other "immature" thread that "I specifically asked about the ES models (yes this makes a difference)..."

And I was just curious...

Seriously, how can it make a difference?

The Eastern Beaver PC8 hooks up to the battery and then simply needs a key-on hot wire to trip the relay... Just like it works on any other motorcycle. What makes the 2014 ES-model S-10 any different?

http://www.easternbeaver.com/Main/Wi...PC-8/pc-8.html








I'm not razzing you or anything. I'm seriously curious as to how it can be any different in this application to mount a PC8.

And on a further note, Mr Vvrroomm gracious provided you with a wonderful link showing a picture step-by-step of PC8 mounting on a 2014 ES here:

And yes, Spaggy... The fuel cap ring on the 2014-2015 Super Tenere is identical to the 2011-2013 models worldwide.

I'm narrowing my new bike choices down. Going to look at a Tenere Tuesday. What's a fair price before taxes on a '15 ES? I see prices all over the map.
Other bike in the running is an F800 GSA.

@Dallara, I answered in the other thread ;)

@Harpoonalt - I haven't tracked '15 prices but with the 14's a big factor was location and I've seen several posts where a lot of dealers aren't even going to order any to have in stock which is a shame. It seems like parts of the midwest and NW had the better pricing in general. Maybe someone in the know can give you the dealer cost so you have some idea how much wiggle room there is.
