      What's on my mind?  Disgust with Yamaha's dysfunctional marketing, with Yamaha's dysfunctional ordering/status systems and with the reports that would have me dismantle suspension on delivery in order to install the grease that Yamaha should have used.  My interest in the model has dissipated to disinterest.  I have a motorcycle. I don't need Yamaha's hassle.

    • The new software update included a new ranking and badges feature. Ranking is based off posts, solving tech questions, stuff like that.
       
      problem is that is doesn’t account for our existing post count so we are ALL ranked as newbies right now, lol.
       
      I’ll mess with the settings today.
       
      Also, the new update broke Invision Power's theme.  So, Light DD and Dark DD are the two theme choices. You can change theme's by scrolling to the bottom of any forum page and clicking on "Theme".

    • How to post pics and do other stuff on the forum
      PICS:
      It's easy to upload pics into a post, but your pic must be smaller than 1.5 MB.  
      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.
