And how nice is that unified braking?? Does BMW even have that yet?
I pretty much agree with the price and maintenance cost comparision. However, if you do a A LOT of knarley, off road riding and have the money to accomplish all of the maintenance on the KTM then that should be your ride of choice.
Cutting?! No thanks! There's usually a point where I cut in the wrong place and the fun goes away really quickly.
My S10 has 11 000 kilometers now. When it had about 3000 km, after a ride, a couple of drops of oil appeared in the bottom of the pumpkin. It was definitely oil because of the smell.
When it had around 8000 km, after a 3500 km ride around my country, some drops appeared in the bottom of the pumpkin again. Nothing to worry about. Both times I just cleaned the pumpkin and with a pressure washer cleaned the gap between the back of the casing and the hub. Both times it worked. I assumed it was some grit in the central retainer.
Now, however, cleaning and washing with pressure don't seem to work. Now it drips to the floor and the leak has become bigger and unstoppable ( As a GS!!!). I cheked the oil level and it is always fine. I changed the drive oil last time when it has 5000 Km. Always using mobil 1 synth drive oil.
I have not taken the rear wheel off ever, but I wonder if the final drive has a retainer in the center of the casing where the axle crosses. It is definitely coming from there and not from the assembly with the shaft as other have shown.
I need your help. It is driving me nuts!!!! I am kind of paranoid with leaks. You know ex beemer owner!!!!
Thanks a lot,

Note to self, GrahamD will never forget a post....
I think I forgot to add I was trying to be funny. Well I guess I need to get to the gym and start prepping for my ultimate ________.
It was 55F and sunny yesterday...even though my Driveway was a complete mud pit. I took the Tenere out for its first ride...only 10 miles as it was late in the day and I was exhausted from along trip. What smile I had on my face
Trying to get up my driveway (steep hill with wet gravel/mud) the traction control kept kicking in and and stalling the bike. Or I just haven't gotten use to it or something, Had to kick it to TC2 to allow me enough throttle to go up the hill. I was being overly cautions....didn't want to dump the bike first time out.
Very happy with the bike
Sounds like the oil seal between the final drive and rear wheel has failed. Shouldn't be too hard to fix. Go easy with the pressure washer in the future, normal hose pressure should be enough to clean anything on a bike.
You did the right thing. TC1 will stall you in a steep climb on dirt. I almost never run TC1 unless I'm on slick, wet tarmac. Besides, TC2 allows the rear end to kick out for corners, which is a hoot on a bike this size.

Likewise, TC1 can cause you to stall out on washboard roads!
Thanks, guess this bike has a little bit of a learning curve.
I've scrolled through the photo thread, but might have missed it.
Does anyone have a photo handy, of their RideOnADV sidestand foot mounted to their ride?
Hows your mobility these days ??
It will be a long while yet though, possibly June/July before we get there. We do not fly till 10th April and we have New York > Toronto > Miami > Chicago > Alaska and Vancouver to fit in first . (In that order !).
Oh, and I have to pop in to Salt Lake and see Pluric and explain to him what is meant by the term 'politically correct'.
Not that I want him to use it, just to keep him out of forum jail.
While you're in Utah, Pluric wants you to weld a swing and a reclining chair onto his bike. He's a bit jealous of your ride. :

Hopefully by then you will be ready to get off that thng and want to get wet.
Yah, who wouldn't want an exo-skeleton on their bike?
Since this bike is built based on the FJR, does that mean we use the same Final drive oil as the FJR? It is triple the cost then the regular Yamalube final drive oil.
I was at the Yamaha dealer and the front desk person in parts thought I should use the FJR final drive. But I had him ask the Mechanic in back and the mechanic told him to use the regular Yamalube final drive not the FJR type.
I bought the regular but now I am worried a little if that is correct. Yes we all were looking at the manual and the regular meets all the specs. But I want to make sure. My pockets aren't that deep to support a final drive blow up or problem.
Can someone let me know what one is the right one to use?
Hi Brent ... I always use the regular Yamalube Lubricant FRICTION MODIFIED SHAFT DRIVE GEAR OIL, SAE 80W-90, API SERVICE GL-4, GL-5 and change it every time I change engine oil.
Great Roberto thanks!
That is the one I got. Whew!!
