No, it is allowed in enduro bikes and my thin Tenere it could be considered a fat enduro bike, don't you think?

You want one? Move to "lowly" old Mexico where you can buy one.

The bike is available just south of you of all places.

It's really a joke on Yamaha USA part from the outside in, but I'm sure the exact real truth is out there somewhere?

I say we get together and GET THOSE BASTARDS FIRED.
That is a very nice machine,AND I WANT ONE.
Sorry for yelling.
But I do want one.

Hi!

I don't like at all the horn and regulator situation. They are very exposed to stones, mud, water, so we've decided to change them.

The horn it wasn't a problem, we've place it at the side of the cooling expansion tank. The problem is where to put the regulator. Whe don't know where, do you can help me?

Very good job! I wish to have your budget. I am with 320mm already 15,000km, about 2,000 off road, no problem with the caliper. Of course I never did something very hard like hill climbing or big rocks but... it's still working. The only problem I have is with the pads. I use the stock YZ caliper and because the pads are not design for 5mm rotor, they not fit very well for the first 200-300km, than is fine.

Yes I am very lucky to find lot of companies that help me in my crazy projects, budget helps a lot!!

I find the 270 rotor with this Braking caliper work fine, if I can I prefer not to go to the big 320, we'll see...

Looking great Jaume! - but it really needs an 18" rear wheel (and big fat 140 tyre) - the stocker looks tiny now!
