You mean there is oil in our bikes !!!!
Yep. It doesn't sound like it but it hides in there some where
This group got quiet. 24 hours and no postings? Where's WFOpete and Pluric when you need them?
Well, depending on the condition of your sump, that is...
Still, is a hell of a lot better than your final drive catching fire I guess.
Heh, Heh, heh, heh (breathing heavy) I just ran back from that other thread where
they now expect you to actually post Tenere photos. Go figure.
I forgot. What was the question?
Pluric do you allow me to post something related with bikes?...
I’m fitting the 21” front wheel in the Super T but it’s all tucked in!
I would appreciate the comments from people that have this wheel size in the ST.
The Yamaha specs said the front suspension is 190mm long. Using all of it the 21” wheel hit the head pipes. Did you had any problem with it?
As you can see in my pics if I use all but the last 21mm the wheel is very close to the head pipes.
In Greg previous post he said he’s ended up using all but the last 32mm (1 1/4") of travel, dou you know if we can use more than this or the suspension stops at this level?
I need to know this to modify the bash plate.
I would appreciate your comments. Thanks!! ::003::
This is Wasp post:
I had my son (6' x 100kg) roll the bike down the driveway, weight the front wheel, and slam the front brakes on to load the forks as much as possible, and we ended up using all but the last 32mm (1 1/4") of travel.
This was good enough for me as the last bit of travel would place the tire on about the same (or reducing) trajectory and would not get any closer to the bash plate.
That said, it is damn close now and would absolutely hit with a new tire.

Unfortunately the last pic is the one that I really wanted as clear as possible. As Murphy's Law would have it this turns out to be the shitty one.
You get the message though and can see that there is only a whisker in it.
Of course, as long as there are bikinis, speedos, sexual innuendos, gay reference,
man tats and personal insults. I don't see a problem.
As far as the 21" front wheel..... shouldn't mess with Mother Yamaha.
It's okay. Your sponser has a pipe bender. Just a few more tweaks and
all will be well.
Still waiting for the ride report.
Did you get that engine thing sorted out?
A scene from "Wrong Way Round"?
I just threw up.
Just when I had thought this couldn't get any more twisted, sick, or demented...
Oh, you're sure one to talk.
Who the *F*CK* is that guy in my house??? :huh
He's way too skinny and has way too much hair to be me!!!
What is wrong to the Yamaha ST owners??? are we all crazy? :ddog
I must go to the GS thread.... is much more serious...
It's no wonder they're so serious, they have so much more to worry about.
If that's not you and you have a black Tenere maybe you're just
out of camera angle and .......... oh good lord, I'm sorry. None of our business.
I just ran the license plate on the wagon. It is actually BMW testing their latest GS!
Interestingly, both people will appear in the upcoming advertisement for the new GS with the slogan, "Loud Pipes....Change Lives"
Trust me. It wasn't much of a stretch.
BLACK!!! That's a *FRIGGIN'* insult, Pluric! Why you Mother... Wait, I don't wanna' get like you did!
You damn well know I've got a *BLUE* Super Ténéré - Thankyouverymuch!!!
I think you've been hanging out in Colorado (didn't they just make Gay marriage legal?) too much with those Katoom riders (didn't they invent Gay Marriage?), trading each other's "Depends" and "Speedos"...
and smokin pot if the gay marriage thing does or doesn't work out
Nothin' much to do except joke around and ride I suppose.
There are a few serious folk in here trying to bust their Tenere's though.
Got a price on that ex demo Plate yet jaumev?
I may need it soon...Bloody Trail bikes.
