  1. The 1 piece seat is not available yet. We are going to have a group buy once all the models are finished so no one is left out. We are getting the seats finished up slowly but surely. Here is the low comfort next to the low rally.

  3. After 8+ months of waiting I finally scored one. Someone backed out of deal and I swooped in! Right time right place.. Should be picking up either this weekend or early next week!

  5. Hi All, This is my first post to the forum, My name is Dimitri and I am one of the engineers of the Aurora Rally Equipment. Got across the thread, so just to add a bit to the knowledge pool, while we are trying our best to update the website. Current situation and back log are holding us a bit back... I know that looks are subjective, and I will not try to ''defend'' the price of the kit nor the looks or use, everybody is free to spend their money wherever they think they fit, in suspension, travel bags etc. Aurora is not very well known in the Yamaha crowd, but it has been in the

  6. I got lucky and found a T7 just 30 mins West of me. Put a deposit down and when it got to the dealer two weeks later, I picked it up and that same weekend rode the Kokopelli trail on it: It was snowing in the canyon, so I couldn't ride it home: When I got home, I rode around the neighborhood and realized I needed new pegs immediately. I felt really bow legged standing up and to get my legs in the correct spot, they were hanging off the pegs. That was the only mod I did before taking it to the desert. Rode from Rabbit Valley to the Dewey bride on day one. No racks, so just tossed a

  8. Hi everyone, new member here. Decided to share my experience so far with ordering the T7 in 2021. In February this year I went to the local dealer and asked for availability and was told that they expect the new bikes to arrive by the end of April. In mid of March I deposited and waited patiently. At the end of April I called the dealer and asked for an update and was told the delivery date was pushed to mid of May. Yesterday I got "THE" call confirming the bike will arrive on Wednesday next week! The dealer is Motodynamics Bulgaria. I know that they do the supply for most of the Balkans so if

  10. Really stoked with my aux tank installation today. The vent fitting was a tight fit with my Outback Motortek tail rack but a few washers under the rear bracket and larger holes for the mounting bolts did the trick. I ran 110 miles today and the fuel still shows full! Ha Ha. Now I've got some range!

  11. I installed some stainless mesh behind the plastic radiator grill. Simple & didn't cost anything as a friend had some mesh. Should keep the large bugs & rock off the radiator.

  12. Super stable & risk free? No Has it failed me yet? No Works in the shop & on the trail? Yes Do I trust it? Definitely Cinch the front brake or put the bike in gear depending on which wheel is being removed. Crack all fasteners loose beforehand to avoid torquing the bike around while lifted. Homemade price, small & light enough to live in the onboard tool kit.

  13. Here are my mods that i've done lately. 1. Oxford heated grips. Great choice. 2. Quadlock wireless charger and old Samsung Android for navigating. Screen is not bright enough during day time, so I'm not completely happy with that. 3. Barkbuster Storm handguards. 4. Removed the stock mirrors and installed cheap 12€ mirrors from Aliexpress. Looks great, works great and quite easy install. Only issue is that now I have to figure out how to fix the Oxford controller. I think mirror mount has reverse tread and I couldn't find suitable fix from my local hardware

  15. I’m currently deployed in Iraq and I knew supply was scarce and demand was high and the likelihood of finding one when I get home was low. I put out 24 emails to dealers in 3 states and only one dealer responded. A sold unit deal fell through and was available. He made a very fair deal, no haggle, and I wired the money. Now I have a bike I won’t see for at least another month, but at least I have one.

  16. Thanks for your explanation and clarification. All great points and a bit of good luck thrown in. Credit rating is king these days for many things. The rule I was taught and I teach my kids is that its OK to finance NEEDS, never wants. The key is to determine in your own situation what is a need and what is a want. It is different for all people. if you say I NEED a T7 for riding in the hills on weekends, clearly it is a want. If you say I NEED a reliable commuter bike that will do everything I want, then this can clearly be an actual need. Prudent decision making could be the diff

  17. I posted the Bumot soft luggage mounted on their luggage racks back in November or so, when I first got the bike but circumstances would not let me test them with a trip until this weekend. They did great and I really like them! Bought these with a the idea of adding their hard luggage (since they use the same racks) but may never do that now. The only negative for me was, like almost all soft luggage options, they use another water proof inner bag. While the Bumot one is very well made, I found it a bother to open the 2nd bag. Since I always have packed items that need water proof

  18. Behold everyone! I just came across this new Italian vendor from a thread on a Tenere group on Facebook. Forewarning, I have no idea about this company or their capabilities of shipping internationally, or even if it's possible to do this with passenger pegs, but it's a new exhaust design and they are apparently selling it, so I figured you guys can check it out. https://www.ffbyfresco.com/prodotto/tenere-700

  19. Update: I have further modified my exhaust, since the original exhaust was damaged and no use I cut the pipe from the muffler and modified it. This allowed me to move the muffler 5" higher getting it more out of the way off potential damage, it also allowed me to use the stock heat shield. I am also doing further modification to the DB killer improving the flow even further from my initial modification, when I have completed these modifications I will post photos showing the original DB killer my first modifications and the final modifications. All modifications

  22. I use a Wahoo bike computer for navigation and I designed and printed a mount for the top bar above the display: Here's a video of how it works: Shared album - Robert Tadlock - Google Photos I've ridden around town and can use all the buttons and such without any movement. Blasted up and down a washboard fire road near my house and so far super solid. This was a proof of concept. I'm going to refine the design for version two. Rob

  23. Hi all. I've cleaned out all plugs and fuses I can find with contact cleaner and now everything works as it should. I did find water ingress is some places. So maybe I've been over zealous with with the jet wash but personally I don't think so.

  25. Currently overseas. Just bought my T7 the other day after emailing 24 dealerships. One dealer emailed me out of 24, he had a sale fall through and so I bought it via the internet. I feel bad for the guys waiting months! Well, I still have to wait a month or two to see my bike but at least I have one now. The accessories are piling up at my dad’s house already. It’s gonna be an early Christmas when I get home.

  27. Bizarre - so one of the bolts that holds the cowl in place came loose and got lodged into the locking mechanism. I pulled the seat up a bit and pushed it out of the way which freed up the lock. Not sure that will be of use to anyone else but I'm glad its sorted out. Will throw some locktite on those bolts just in case that happens again! Thanks for the help @zaskar and @Landshark!

  30. If you were my kid, I would tell you to save up to buy it outright. Ya, that sound harsh but it is a toy, not a necessity. There are guys like me that have put money down on one in February and have no clue when they will show up. Plenty of good used bikes out there for cheap...

  31. Doable, yes, but It would be a colossally huge pain in the ass. The old dirt bike rules still apply, but would be a nightmare to do. You gotta get your 500+lb beast lifted (which will suck in water, especially flowing, cold water with soft or rocky bottoms), and then pushed out to the shore. If you want to lift it up to drain the exhaust, you'll need probably 3 or more guys to do that. The exhaust doooes have a little drain hole for condensation and rail, but still. The air filter is easy enough. The spark plugs are a pain (compared to a dirt bike) so you'll likely need the tools to it,

  35. Thanks for the inspiration @Rich TT They are a set of Excel rims on new hubs (built by Haan Wheels), the rims are sealed, so tubeless! I need to find a set of discs and ABS rings for the original wheels now, so I can run more offroad oriented tires on those.

  36. For people who don't know, the gasket/seal on the sumitomo system should be crimped with the largest of the tabs on the pin. Thats what keeps the seal in place and prevents it from sliding back up the wire. There are three sets of tabs. One for the wire/contact, one for the wire insulation, and then one for the rubber seal. The crimp tools have a "seal" part for this exact purpose. You can see in the picture where that seal is crimped.

  37. @hawk45 You mentioned a SM setup, so you might rummage through these threads for ideas and feedback. I built a DRZ SM setup which provided more smiles than a sport bike did, so guessing the T700 would be a great platform as well.

  42. I know lots of us are banging a lot of money into our T7s but there's a place to draw the line. $2K is a lot to ask for minimal addtional functionality, especially when that same money could easily go into something like suspension or upgraded wheels - or, barring T7 upgrades, nearly half of a new CRF300L or similar.

  43. Yes, no issues. 18ltr bags come close enough to warrant a heat shield but still plenty compatible.
