    I’m looking for info on bike salvage yards. Namely yamaha super tenere parts.

    More to the point, the plastic passenger seat pan.

    Little help? :wink:

    I haven't visited many bike salvage yards but I have visited few.
    And every one of them sucked.
    Piles and piles of old junk, priced at ridiculously high.

    Search Ebay (don't forget overseas Ebay sites) and if that doesn't work then just try to find a source that sells new parts at best possible discount.

    Search for copart auctions...find a bike with a scrap title, and who bought it.

    Long shot for something as new as the Yami Ten, but use "searchtempest.com" to search all of craigslist (as well as Ebay)?? Just know who you are dealing with on CL..........if possible. Do you belong to a Tenere forum.........lots of parts bought/sold.
