      Hi 
       
      just ordered my t7 rally tail tidy. 
       Question if you don’t mind 
      have you had any issues in terms of police stopping you?  Due to angle of it. 
      cheers

      Question.  I have a set of Magadan Bags. I’ve used before on different bikes.  I’ve sold all my previous bikes, and I’m waiting on a T7.  I’d like to use the Magadan Bags with the T7.  Which rear rack can I use?   I like the smallest that will work securely. Securely being the key word there.  Would not like a full tubular frame around the rear end, if possible.   I wanted to send this to you as a PM, not sure if that’s an option.  
      thanks

      I saw your post in top things to do to your T7.  Or, whatever that thread is called.  I noticed the engine guards, skid plate, and rear spring.  I’m 235 lbs (6’5”) so I know I’ll need a rear spring.  Did you do anything to the front shocks?  Just curious..
      And, did you get the lower engine bars also?  I couldn’t tell from the pic.  I’m not real eager to get the T7 weighing as much as the big GS Adventure I’m getting rid of.  
      Your other recommendations made sense also.  
      Thanks,
      Jeff

      1. bottom left of the new post, either drag in the pic or click "choose files" .
      2. If you clicked "choose files" it opens your pc's or phones files where you can navigate to your pic and then click ok or choose. 
      3.You will see the pic upload into a small window in the bottom left. After it uploads and you can see it, click the + symbol to upload it to your post. 
      Finish your post and click "submit" .  Wasn't that easy?

    • 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
