Very similar to you, basically want to turn it into an ultimate overlander machine.

Lose weight where possible to mitigate adding weight with crash bars, luggage etc.

 

One thing that I'm really keen to do is either get the plastics wrapped, or get a decal kit to cover them as best as possible. I've been trail riding on my Tiger 800 so far and the plastics have avoided any major damage thanks to the crash bars/ barkbusters. But they're covered in tiny scratches from twigs and leaves etc. Covering the plastics will at least keep them looking tidy underneath, plus it will give me some stylistic freedom.

I love the night fluo scheme my MT nine has. And I will think of a way to night flou my black Tenere a bit more. Has already ordered but not got the rally raid saddle, the Acrapovic exhaust and the saddle bags and rack. 

 

The wind shield. I will try to find something higher (or lower) there. And the transparent sides will get some attention to. Perhaps plastidip. The suspension is more than adequate for me and my capabilities as a rider.

Basically exactly what you have said prwatts (noticed you're not far away from me). I've ordered most of these but have't got the bike yet!!

 

I want to sort a tail tidy. I'm thinking of unbolting the whole number plate thing and putting a flexi plate on the handy part that remains (just like a dirt-bike) with the 4 exisiting bolt holes. Then fabricating a small bracket for the indicators.

 

Interested in some of the parts the T7 rally guys are making too.

 

Cheers

Rich

Am I the only one who will let the tail be? 🤔😬

In the dirt I want some protection!

I agree with the tail tidy.  It sticks out the back way too far.  I want to put a  smaller plate on but I don't want attention for the fuzz.   My bike came from Arnolds and they put a really big plate on.

 

Have a look at off-the-road.de  they have some nice stuff.  Also the Facebook Group  "Yamaha T7 Tenere 700 World Raid - Global Group"  some of those guys are extreme.

Oh sorry - when you said "T7 Rally guys" I did not twig that they are on the "Yamaha T7 Tenere 700 World Raid - Global Group"
