    The plastic screws are from the same place Mike..OTR. In the interim you can get stainless ones from one of the nut/bolt shops. I got mine on Cavan Rd.
    Cheers.

    I have Greg, as you are in Sydney you are welcome to try mine on your bike if you want before you purchase. I don't like it, it doesn't carry enough for the big trips, it carries it to high, hits on my camel back when in the sand. The Wolfman bags and racks get it low the combination also protects the bike if you throw it down and they are 100% water proof.
    I use mine on the 650 for overnighters and loan it to mates :lol3

    I bought the protective film kit for my BMW from

    http://www.ducoscratch.com.au/products.asp?cat=378

    But they aren't showing a kit for the Tenere.

    This company in the UK do though so you can either buy overseas or see if the Gold Coast company can get the graphic design for it.

    Visited Craig at Tee n Cee (he and Tim have since sold the business but TeeNCee are still in Penrith and would still have the temps) and had tank protectors made and fitted. Mine were made out of a tough clear contact and in the day light they are hard to see but you have the piece of mind when your knees are rubbing against the tank that your paint is protected. They are still there today some 50k and 900hrs later.

    Now,just supposing I did buy a tenere,what's the best way to lower it 25 to 30 mm. Test rode one the other day and it was a bit tall.

    You can buy lowering links. Which drops the arse down.

    I have found on my tenere it has sagged and soften up suspension wise about 20mm. I want to wind the rear spring up to see if I can get some height back.

    I think I read somewhere on this site that the lowering kits on the Ten caused a interaction between the travel on the shocks and something - though that may only have been if you have the Ohlins fitted. Check it out.

    Hi all,
    The good wife and the Tenere Tart and i have just returned home from the COLD FLAME Rally on the Pinch River.
    First time two up loaded....
    I have to say that the Tenere is a bloody fantastic bike when set up and FARKLED...
    Tall screen + Wilbers progressive front springs+ Wilbers rear shock.
    Also I have lowering links fitted which were no issue when fully loaded.
    How loaded???
    2x 45 lt alluminium panniers+ 90 lt dry bag+ Rendvers tent+ 2 camping chairs.
    I have also removed the snorkel and fitted the stage one air filter cover, as well as drilled out the exhaust with the 20 mm hole saw down the guts to open it up + Kev's mod....which is basically a 10K pot and set at 6K.

    So how did the bike perform?
    Bloody good with the air and fuel mods, totally transforms the bike, it now pulls from 2000 rpm, and has the ability to overtake on the highway, the Wilbers suspension if great, no bottoming out.
    The brakes are fantastic.
    The tall screen makes the bike a real pleasure to ride. I actually prefer to commute to work 160km on the Tenere than my old R1100GS...more comfortable.:clap:clap:clap

    The only issue that the wife had was getting on the bike as it is too tall...so the trick is with the side stand down she gets on first...then shuffles back and i then get on...quite funny to watch.
