I wasn't convinced so I did scientific experiment

Scale 1, the good one from the neighbor: 74,3 kg



Scale 2, the bad... mine.. and in pounds, the kg are the red numbers: 74 kg



And the two: 28 + 46,6 = 74,6



So it seams that the weight is correct... and if you take the shoes out it is perfect

Last time: EU mfg costs and import will put it at over $10k USD. With the old-style motor & transmission, at 453 lbs. wet (stock), that's just too much money against other options including a used TE630 and a used or new KTM 690, not to mention the possibility of a new CCM GP-450.

I added a chain guide. I think it is a important security element: http://traildreamer.com/guia-cadenas/

The chainguide is good
the bags are Big!
The rack is rubbish
the placing is horrible, way to far back, way behind the back axle, to high up.
For offroad you`ll need something sturdier, connected on the backside, Up front using the passenger peg attachmentpoints.
Just spent 3 days trying to keep up with a HP2 on fast sandy trails, and saw his Adventurespec bags flapping like they where trying to make a lift-off, and they where secured by 2 straps each and connected over the saddle!

I've just clocked 15,000km, much on the dirt roads of Peru, with the Siskiyous on my Tenere and they have been superb. Two straps to the pillion footpegs, two to the rear rack, nothing more.

I mount mine further forward, so the front half of the top section sits on the pillion seat. Works a treat.

I think I need to strip everything down!! She's got 50,000km now, much on dirt. Swing Arm bearings need replacing, headlight stay is bent after a few crashes, front cowling is breaking, a couple of bent spokes.... But she's still going strong!!!

Yes, I know this in enough but I had the feeling the bags where bending towards the rear wheel and they move in the jumps. With this simple racks they where fixed.
I like to do hard off road and prefer to fix the bags as back as possible to have free space to move. They aren't heavy so I don't feel too much it's weight.

Yes, this Siskiyous are great

G'day jaumev,
This Talon rear hub for your Tenere, is it a cush drive hub? The photo is not clear on that. If so, where is it available?

Thanks
