      I managed to buy a nice used T700 with the Yamaha Rally Pack already fitted. Being 5' 11" the rally seat makes the bike feel more like an overgrown dirt bike. The Akropovic exhaust is nice and not loud. Several other nice features like the chain guide. I've replaced the heavy (2 Kg) tail piece with a T7rally.com tail tidy. Also GIVI crash bars and RaceTech alloy hand guards. When  I take it into wet mud I'll get some decent tyres.

    • The Stock Rear Tire on the Tenere 700 is 150/70/18 .  But many people are choosing to go with the 140/80/18 instead. 
       
      Let's compare the two, shall we? 
       
      PRICE.  The most popular reason for going with the 140/80/18 size tire is that it costs so much less than the 150/70/18.  Take a look at the Continental TKC 80.  In 150/70/18 it costs $199.99.  But in 140/80/18 it only costs $106.96. That is a huge difference in price that allows T7 owners to put that extra money towards something else for their bikes. 
       
      Less Pinch Flats.  Looking at the chart below, the 140/80/70 tire has a 6.7% taller sidewall.  This reduces pinch flats when airing the tire down, and allows you to have a little more cushion as well. 
       

       
      Less width.  It's a proven fact that the more narrow the tire, the better traction one has offroad. The tire can more easily dig down and find more to grab onto. 
       
      DISADVANTAGE.  If you are height challenged and have a short inseam, the 140/80/18 tire will be a bit taller. IF you can barely get a foot down with the stock 150/70/18 rear tire, you might want to consider getting a low seat, or a lowering link. 
      It's not a HUGE increase of height, but tire height will go up from 26.27 inches/667.2 mm to 26.82 inches/681.2 mm. 
       
      Another possible disadvantage, this is not the tire size that Yamaha Recommends.  To some this is important, to some it doesn't matter at all. 
       
      There may or may not be some safety considerations, especially when riding long distances on highway and going with a more narrow tire. But for offroad purposes, the 140/80/18 seems to be the way to go. 
       
      Sound off below with your thoughts on this controversial but popular tire debate.

    • SuperMoto T7?
      So folks, I've been thinking...
       
      The MT-07 front discs are exactly the same size as the T7's (no surprise in terms of money saving etc.). So it got me thinking if MT-07 wheels would fit? What a supermoto that would be (and keep the off road wheels/tyres for a quick swap). Two bikes in one😎
       
      The swinging arm will take a 180 rear tyre of the MT-07 I'm sure no problem. So does anyone have any idea if they would fit? If not, I'll get my tape measure out at my Yamaha dealers...
       
      The front mudguard might look a bit weird with the smaller 17 inch front wheel, but I'll worry about that after I know they fit.
       
      Cheers
      Rich
