Almost all initial problems with new equipment are RTFM problems.
Any of you guys have noise from I guess the wheels? In my bike it starts at around 65km/h and the frequency raises until it stops at 78. Then it starts again at around 115km/h.
Is this noise made by the Pirelli street knobbies or by a bad balancing?
It's not the wheels. It is the tires. A very common problem.
Tires, had the same thing happening with my GS. You get used to it, not to worry, the tires are awesome.
Anyone interested in pannier frames or a rear rack,
I have just dropped my bike off with Metal Mule for prototyping. They should have it sorted by the end of this week.
I have nothing to do with the company.
That's good to hear, I'm definitely interested in a rear rack.
Aren't you interested in the factory boxes and rack? Yamaha European website lists nice luggage options.
Not that I am trying to steer you away from the aftermarket companies! I simply just haven't seen any of you all that have the t7 opting for the Explorer Pack as shown on the official Yamaha website.
I thought it was a wrongly balanced wheel, I have no experience with this 50/50 tyres.
There isn't any noise up until 65km/h, it starts a 'wowowo' noise and it gets quicker frecuency as you accelerate until it goes away completely at 80km/H. It comes again at 115.
Shouldn't the tires make a constant friction noise? At least my Enduro tires do when I run them on tarmac.
The noise is like when you get a cable and you spin it quickly with your wrist.
I don’t currently own a T7 but I get this noise when riding my DR on tarmac. Sounds like a roaring sound from the wheel area but it’s definitely the tires. Changed tires recently and did nothing else and it’s gone. Also use to get the noise on our pickup truck when running off-road oriented tires on the road.
I get the same noise with those tires on my Desert Sled, hardly notice it anymore. Love the tires!
The Explorer Pack looks great if you like hard Panniers, but it does look heavy. For those of us that like soft luggage I am looking forward to some low weight, after market pannier racks and rear rack. Not to keep pushing KTM, but the 690 OEM racks work great with Mosko Moto, Enduristan, and others, and the Perun rear rack is a real nice kit. I would expect Perun to be working on a T7 version.
The Yamaha rear rack weighs 6 kgs on its own,
I run Mosko backcountry so just want decent frames and a lighter rear rack.
Have you seen the Yamaha rack, it's like a piece of scaffolding
Looks nice and tough!
Just like the rebadged Givi Outback pannier rack.
The OEM rack and boxes makes the otherwise slim T7 wide as a bus, which is a real drawback here in Europe where lane splitting is legal (or at least tolerated) in many countries.
They look like they're pretty close to the body/muffler, maybe could have come in another inch or so. Narrowest profile would be soft luggage that sits above the muffler.
Yeah, not digging that tail rack! But I do like the looks of hard cases. Makes your butt look big for sure, but.... For some trips I would want them. For other trips I would exchange the hard for soft bags I already have.
Can you send me pictures or more info about those bags and the rack that go with it...PM no problem because it's a T7 thread...
That's a lot like the setup I had on my AT. Didn't even need pannier stays as the body panels supported them. It'd be a good solution for those riding solo on the T7.
