    I ordered the factory manual from these people and I'm quite sure I've ordered other manuals from them in the past. Manual was $40 plus shipping, arrived promptly. Lots of brands' manuals available. Not affiliated with the company, but they did ask for me to mention them, which I was going to do anyway.

    Wish I knew about this before. I bought mine from Yamaha for more than double that. That is a screaming deal.
    If you just want a PDF of the service manual, there is a dropbox link on T700.net. Since I paid Yamaha for the manual, I don't have any qualms about downloading a PDF of it onto my phone for reference on the road.

    Well, I just ordered one and no issues. I'll report the follow on experience.

    That PDF is great. It's easy to link to different sections to find what you need. The one I have is the Euro version. I'm not sure if there's a US or NA version but I typically use it for assembly instructions or Torque values. SO it hasn't been an issue for me.

    Yikes. I try to be careful on the internet, with quite a bit of security add-ons. I did not get any such message.

    Did you get any warnings? My guess is 'not' or you surely would have mentioned.

    No warnings. And my desktop ran a scheduled virus scan shortly after the order. Did receive an order confirmation and a shipping label creation emails. Probably a security certificate issue.

    Nice, till you do the euro to dollar conversion.

    My Givi D2145S screen arrived from TT. Mounted in the lowest position (w/motopumps screen adjuster).
    Smooth airflow . . . several inches below my eye level. I do not like looking through a tinted screen in shaded areas on the road . . . difficult to see road kill/debris.

    The screen adjuster leaves a 1” gap under the screen at its lowest position (helps reduce buffeting). Plus, allows for a 4” upward travel adjustment. No clearance issues at full left/right bar turns (lowest position).

    https://www.motopumps.com/shop/yamaha-tenere-700-windscreen-adjuster

    Every rider will have different buffeting results (depending on rider height and helmet).
    I am 5’ 11” . . . ride with my visor open approx. 2.5”

    So I finally found out why the guy at RideADV in Australia recommended "XT660 brake pads". The responded..."they give better petal feel." Interesting.

    I received my Motopumps screen adjuster yesterday, put it on today and will try it out tomorrow . Went on easy peasy , looks well made. I currently have a little Puig deflector on the top of the stock winshield that works. Between the 2 of them I'm hoping I can adjust to any speed , seat , and Helmet . If I can loose the deflector It would be even better :clap

    I was using my riser kit with the stock screen (w/medium Puig clip-on) raised to the same 17” height.
    It allowed more air under the screen and had less turbulence.

    The tinted wider screen has better cold air protection and will be better for the winter months. I may swap it back next summer. I do like the looks of the tinted smoke screen better.

    It is nice to have options.

    I may try a spacer on the lower screen adjuster bracket to tip the assy back a bit . . . to smooth the air flow:

    Edit (Try II):

    I had longer 5mm hex bolts and 3/8” spacers for the bottom mounts to tip it back . . . raised it 1.5” to allow more counter buffeting air under the screen.

    I still have full view looking over the screen.

    Smoother airflow . . . similar to my clip-on fly screen. As good as I hoped for.

    That looks like it’s time to get the sleds out. You guys are pretty ambitious.

    thank for the video

    Aren't they! I started out a ride this morning in 39 degrees (f) before the rain hits soon...my only concern was any residual icy patches.
    Not even remotely as challenging. :ricky
