  2. I’m taking a week off to finish the IDBDR. Leaving this am by truck to drop my youngest son in Butte MT for school. Tomorrow I’ll move him in the dorm and then drive to Lolo Hot Springs. Thursday I’ll head out solo and the GF will take my truck back to Poky. Right now I think I’m overloaded so I’ll ditch some gear before I start. A friend is meeting me in Wallace Friday night on his KLR. He’ll do the last two days of the ride. Hopefully I can post up some of my shitty phone pics here as I go. Mostly because I’ve enjoyed looking at other T7 holligan’s trip threads. I’ll start with this one. Leaving the house, headed to Butte
  3. Center Tank Protector samples are in! We have two choices... Center Tank Protector 2: $20 option (retail is $25) OR Center Tank Protector 84: $15 option (retail is $20) Let me know what you think! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Just got of the phone with my good friend Scott at TechSpec, and have GREAT NEWS!!! They are just days away from releasing their TechSpec Gripster Tank Grips for the Tenere 700 on Aug 1st, and we're doing a GROUP BUY on them!!! These fit the Tenere 700 perfectly, and this 6 piece set offers more surface area then the Genuine Yamaha Accessory version (which isn't even available in the US). The material they chose for the Tenere 700 is their Snake Skin material - great grip, and extremely durable. Retail pricing is $80, but GROUP BUY pricing is as follows: 1-9 people: $70 and FREE SHIPPING (in the Contiguous US) 10+ people: $65 and FREE SHIPPING (in the Contiguous US) International customers are more than welcome, but it's a flat rate of $35 to ship internationally. Canadian customer orders will ship via DHL to avoid silly USPS delays (for some reason Canadian Customs take a while for USPS items to clear) Because TechSpec is located in the US, there will NOT be the long lead times associated with parts manufactured in Europe. Scott assured me he can get these out quickly. And I'm going to go one step further...for those NOT wanting to wait until we get to 10+ people, I'll REFUND you the $5 difference if and when we get to 10 people! If you want a matching tank pad, there are a few universal ones they make that should fit the Tenere 700 nicely, in the same matching Snake Skin material. Scott is sending me some samples to see which ones fit best. Once we determine which one fits best with the Tenere 700 tank, I'll post up a picture and I'll add it as an option to this group buy. The tank pad will be a $15-$20 option, depending on the tank pad that is chosen, which is $5 off the retail price. It'll ship for free along with the Tank Grips. I'll start the list now: 1. ORDERED @johnnygolucky kit 2. ORDERED @roy826 kit 3. ORDERED @MOTOTEVE kit 4. ORDERED @pgeldz kit + tank pad 2 + tank pad 84 5. ORDERED @beater_bimmer kit + tank pad 84 6. ORDERED @Idarex kit 7.

  4. Bookmark this website address, www.yamahamotorsports.com/tenere-700 EDIT: Scroll down this thread for updated info! The order of delivery is soley dependant upon how fast the dealer submits their YDS claims on Friday, AFTER we preregister. YAMAHA USA IS NOT USING DATES OF DEPOSITS MADE! On the 22nd, at noon EST we have to login and fill out registration, and choose if we want one of Yamaha's expensive accessory packs. Then we have to get a registration number emailed to us, take that to the dealer and then they enter the registration number into yamaha's system to confirm that we have paid the $500 registration . The dealer has to submit the YDS claim with our registration numbers ASAP because this is what determines who gets their bike first. MAKE SURE YOUR DEALER KNOWS THIS!!!!!!
  5. I curious on the range people are getting out of a full tank. Today my low fuel "light" came on at 139 miles wich is definitely not going to cut it for some of the trips I have planned i was really hoping for 200 miles out of a tank. Is my low mileage cause I just ride that hard. This was a mixture of hwy riding and twisty back mountain roads and some urban commuting. This is only my 2nd tank the first tank i ran down to about 1/4 then filled up again. So what are people tending to get out of a tank? Is the reserve that big on this bike can i get another 50 miles? Any info would be great and the more input the better. Here is a pic from todays 80mile ride home from work. Lol my shop is only 14 miles away but for some reason I got lost today. Also got my gps installed. Size matches the dash perfectly.
  6. Dealer just texted me! My bike ships from warehouse June 8th. My OTD price is $11,235 including 6% sales tax and dealer fees. No accessory packs. My claim number on the 22nd of May was 636301 , not sure if that means anything to anyone. Call your dealers, they have shipping confirmation for all preorders that went thru on the 22nd of May! Have them look at Order management, Confirmed orders! Almost time boys and girls!!
  7. I finally received my bike two days ago and it’s time to accessorize. I am installing the Tusk Quiet Glide Skid Plate. The best bang for your buck in my opinion. The skid plate is $189. I will update this review as I use and abuse the skid plate.
  8. Does anyone else think the shift lever is too high? Mine sits about even with the top of the footpeg. Is this normal? I am coming to ADV riding from the world of sport bikes (11 years), so perhaps this is normal in the ADV world, but at least in these first few days of ownership, I find myself unable to make a series of down shifts. My size (6'3") means that the angle of my leg/ankle is such that if I lift/flex my foot as far up as possible, the lever doesn't rise enough to make the next downshift. I find that I have to lift my heel completely off the footpeg, whenever performing a series of downshift as when coming to a light or stop sign. I looked at adjusting the height of the lever, but noticed a small flange of metal protruding from the back of the footpeg bracket, that (appears) would prevent me from lowering the lever from its stock position. If my heel were like an inch or so higher, I think I wouldn't be having this issue. Normal? Just one of those ADV things I need to get used to? Thanks all.
  9. UPDATE #13 MWR is here! We're in the process of shipping now! You should receive tracking numbers in the next 24-36 hours (check your spam folders if you don't see it) ==================================================================================== UPDATE #12 (Jul 28) MWR tracking info has been updated and shows them now arriving Wednesday! ====================================================================================== UPDATE #11 (Jul 22) MWR Shipped! Due to arrive to us on Monday! Whoo hoo!!! - Paul ======================================================================================== UPDATE #10 (Jul 15th) Just got word that the MWR Filters are shipping to us Monday or Tuesday of next week!!! Not too much longer now! ================================================================================ UPDATE #9 (Jul 13th) Remember when I said the rest of the Gilles axle adjusters would ship to us on July 24th? Well, not true...THEY'RE HERE! Just showed up!!! I'm a man of my word, and the one I ordered for me personally will be used to fill customer orders. We're just waiting now on the MWR filters and filtercovers, which are in the next shipment coming to us. As soon as I have tracking I'll update this thread Thanks again for everyone's patience. - Paul ======================================================================================== UPDATE #8 (Jul 6th) I have news on Gilles and MWR... Gilles sent us all the Gold Chain Adjusters to fill customer's orders. They informed me that the Black adjusters will be ready to ship (to us) on the 24th of July. My guess is that with COVID-19 hitting Europe hard, they are consolidating their anodizing into one very big batch of Black, because we received all Gold, and zero Black. For the people who ordered Gold Chain adjusters, we are are still waiting on your air filter and air box cover to arrive from MWR. MWR - the frames arrived and they are getting our order ready to ship. As soon as I have tracking, I'll pass it on. If anyone who ordered a Gold chain adjuster doesn't want to wait for the MWR items to arrive, we could ship the chain adjusters out now for $7. PM me if you'd like this option. Thanks for everyone's patience and understanding in these strange times. ========================================================================================= UPDATE #7 (June 19th) I was waiting on tracking numbers from Europe before I posted another update to the original thread, but because I've had people PMing me asking, I figured I'd post the status of things as they sit now: Gilles: We have received about 70% of our Gilles order, but still waiting on the rest to come. MWR: It is supposed to be shipping next week to us. Rapid Bike (for those who also ordered these): Expected to be here in the US by Jul 1st. I understand everyone's frustration. COVID-19 has really hit Europe hard. Most of these manufacturers are operating at 50% capacity, and the workers in place have to main a 1.5 meter distance from each other. I think the lead times are highlighted more with certain group buys, because the structure of a group buy, and the reason I'm able to do these incredible prices means I have to have a minimum amount of people to make it cost effective to offer in the first place - which sometimes means longer lead times because we have to wait until the minimum amount of people commit, and then when I do place the order, its usually in giant quantities that take the manufacturers longer to produce. This, combined with the global COVID-19 situation has made it frustrating for many. I understand all to well. I personally have some parts on order for myself but when they arrive I'm actually going to use them to fulfill customer orders since I can't ride my Tenere until Oct due to a recent surgery. At these incredible prices, there isn't enough margin to ship items as they arrive, so we wait until everything is here for a customer, and ship all at once. I really appreciate everyone's patience with all of this, and hope the wait times don't tarnish your experience or actual service you are getting from BellissiMoto, as we are also waiting for all these products as well. As soon as I have more info I'll pass it on. With all I wrote above, it looks like we should be able to start fulfilling everyone's order in about two weeks Please hang in there everyone, it'll be worth the wait! If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me. ======================================================================================= UPDATE #6 As promised, I have some info. As far as Gillies parts go, they will have the AXB-RN29 Axle Adjusters back in stock on the 12th, then they will start shipping. The ACM Ti Axle Nuts are all part of the last shipment which is currently on its way to us. MWR - The main reason fort the delay are the frames for the airfilters. They had stock which was gone in a few days when everyone found out the Tenere 700 was the same fitment as the FZ-07, and then I came along and ordered 50 pieces. They had to order new frames and that will take a bit before they get them, and now, specially now with this crisis , all factories work at 50% because they need to have their employees more then 1,5 meters otherwise their factory could be shut down. The first batch of frames is just about ready, and should take care of everyone who ordered. MWR asked me to "please be patience in this exceptional times ,,,,, nothing is normal at this moment." ========================================================================================== UPDATE #5 Quick heads up on status... I know many of you have asked me when your items will arrive. Just wanted to let everyone know I've e-mailed all the companies involved in our Group Buy for status updates, and I'll let everyone know the outcome as soon as I find out. We've placed ginormous order with these companies, much bigger than normal. It's taking a bit for them to fill, and with COVID-19 it isn't helping. I'll keep everyone posted as soon as I have info Thanks for your patience. - Paul ======================================================================================= UPDATE #4 The Group Buy has ended. Parts have been ordered from their respective manufacturers, and will be shipped out to customers respectively upon arrival. Thank you everyone! ====================================================================================== UPDATE #3 Due to popular demand, I'm letting this Group Buy run until the weekend is out before I start invoicing everyone. ===================================================================================== UPDATE #2 Minimum number of participants met!!! I'll be sending invoices starting tomorrow, but more can join in if they want, until the group buy is over. ===================================================================================== UPDATE!!! Since everyone committed to the Gilles Ti Axle Nut, many people have contacted me about getting the Gilles chain adjuster to go along with it. I am EXTENDING THE OPTION TO ADD IT TO THIS GROUP BUY!!! Beautifully machined, the unique and innovative AXB Chain Adjuster by Gilles Tooling allows for high precision chain adjustments via graded scale to dial in the perfect amount of chain tension, as well as account for any production tolerance inconsistencies of your motorcycle. In addition, the AXB chain adjuster stays in the swing arm, making real wheel installation much easier. Precise positioning by graded scale Special bolt enables axle adjustment in both directions Acts as an axle brace against compressive and tensile loads AXB stays in the swing arm during rear wheel installation Works with OEM or Gilles Ti axle nut Unique, innovative axle block Easier rear wheel installation Available in 3 hard anodized colors (Black, Gold, or Red) Unique Gilles design Gilles AXB Chain Adjuster - Retail is $102.00, GROUP BUY Price - $86.00 (Please specify Black, Gold, or Red) Note: Pics are generic and may not reflect the actual item, although it will be similar. Shipping for this item is FREE with purchase of any MWR item or Gilles Ti Nut advertised in this Group Buy. Otherwise, for US customers it's $12, for International customers, it's $35 flat rate. ========================================================================================= Hello everyone!!! I'm excited to bring you BellissiMoto's first GROUP BUY! I knew I had to make this first Group Buy special, so not only is it going to be on MWR's Air Filter, but MWR's Air Box Cover or any combo of the two!!! Before we get to the incredible pricing, lets break down on what's on offer: MWR Air Filter and MWR Air Box Cover: The MWR Air Filter and Air Box Cover is a great addition to your Tenere 700. MWR filters are used in World Motorsport, and have won with the Factory Kawasaki's in World Superbike last 5 years in a row. They are also used in the wining Factory Yamaha and Suzuki MotoAmerica Superbike that won the last 3 years, as well as many other teams around the world. The MWR filter has been testing against the best paper filters in the world, and beat them hands down. But what about the new foam filter by Yamaha? From the looks of it, the opening is smaller, and it looks to be just foam, where MWR's filter has more surface area for more filtration, and is coated with anti-flammable material for the utmost in safety. Well, what about DNA's combo? It might be a paper filter, but they have a Filter Cover to go with it. Sure they do, I've had BOTH on my FZ-07. The MWR filter alone with the DNA cover, made .6 hp more than the DNA combo with the existing DNA tune I had. When tuned specifically for the MWR filter (since it breaths much better), it made 1.1 hp more. That wasn't even with the MWR Air Box Cover, as it wasn't released until after I did my dyno testing. So that's 1.1 hp MORE than the leading paper filter, which is supposed to give 1-2 hp over stock to begin with. Depending on the components you have (slip-on, full system, engine management, hi octane gas, tune, etc.), I'd expect you to gain anywhere from 1.5-3.0 hp from MWR's Filter and Air Box Cover. So not only did the MWR filter outperform the best paper filter on the market, it's also anti-flammable, and has a matching Air Box cover to go along with it, which has a leg up on the competition. MWR's Air Box Cover design is genius, and incorporates 3 key features over the competition: 1) The opening of the Filtercover is not only radioused to allow smooth airflow into the airbox, it also matches the square opening of the MWR Air Filter, MAXIMIZING airflow entry as well. 2) This new design is half the thickness of the competition, so instead of having a thick piece of material and having to mill two of the corners down, MWR's Filtercover does the exact opposite and is half the thickness, but builds up the two corners where needed. This saves weight, and also allows the air going into the opening to reach the filter sooner, rather than the double thickness of the competition which restricts incoming air from reaching the filter material. 3) Price. MWR's Air Box Cover is less expensive than the competition, even at full retail. Before we get to the special pricing, here are some pictures of the MWR Air Filter and Air Box Cover: Special pricing is as follows: MWR Air Filter: Retail is $87.00, GROUP BUY Price - $69.00 MWR Filtercover: Retail is $68.00, GROUP BUY PRICE Price - $54.00 MWR Air Filter/Filtercover combo: Retail is $155.00, GROUP BUY PRICE Price - $116.00 I need just 10 people to commit for this special pricing. Shipping is FREE for US customers, $35 flat rate for international customers. You know we aren't gonna stop there! This is BellissiMoto! And we're known for our group buys! We are also offering the Gilles Titanium Axle Nut!!! Many of folks on the Tenere 700 will be out adventuring, and off roading, and mostly likely carring tools to change your tires in case of a puncture, flat, etc. As many Yamaha FZ-07 owners already know (it takes the same OEM rear axle nut), the stock rear axle nut has been prone to causing problems...the two large metal flanges that act as the locking mechanism sometimes jam up on the threads of the axle and almost weld themselves to it. When trying to loosen it for tire changes, chain adjustments, etc., either the threads strip, or the axle block that holds the axle in place breaks. The issue is with those large metal flanges on the stock nut. The solution is to use a different nut - The Gilles ACM Titanium Axle Nut. One of the lightest axle nuts on the market, the ACM Titanium Axle Nut by Gilles is one of the safest too. The patent pending pin-lock safety technology secures the ACM Titanium Axle Nut in place, making it bomb-proof while allowing it to be loosened faster than a split pin secured nut. It weighs just 20 grams, which is less than 3/4ths of an ounce. It's design is inspired and derived by factory racing teams, and has been used by professional racers such as Cal Crutchlow to become a World SuperSport Champion. A product of award-winning precision engineering makes the ACM Titanium Axle Nut TUV and ISO certified, and will no doubt give your bike that ultra-premium look. M18x1.5 Material: Titanium ti6alv4 Ultra lightweight at 20 grams (less than 3/4ths of an ounce) Innovative pin-interlock security w/ high locking characteristics Perfectly compliments chain adjuster kits by Gilles Tooling Plastic-pin accomodates thread form and locks with friction Simple security through interlock system Easy assembly with a Included hex tool You can see the locking mechanism here...a plastic threaded insert comes out and locks against the threads when you tighten the set screw on the face of the nut. Pretty ingenious. I've had mine on and off over 50 times now without issue. Because the shipping cost is getting absorbed into a much bigger order, I'm able to pass the savings on to everyone and offer it at a fantastic price. Retail is $80.00, GROUP BUY PRICE Price - $60.00 Shipping for this item is FREE with purchase of any MWR item above. Otherwise, for US customers it's $10, for International customers, it's $35 flat rate.

  10. What affordable torque wrenches are you guys using? and it seems that most of these are too big for the bike. Digital vs Click ? Your thoughts appreciated.

    Finally got my plate
  12. Literally screwing around yesterday for days/hours… I finally acquired (ordered June 10th, received July 29th) my OEM accessories. Radiator guard, center stand and chain guide. This allowed me to finally/also install the lower Hepco and Becker engine guard. Now that the center stand is installed, I can finally remove and replace the OEM shock with the Rally Raid spring this week. I actually had to pay my dealer to get the center stand springs mounted as I had no figure-able / creative, clean way to get them on. It took three guys and a tie down strap to pull them on, I guess I could of tried that. The instructions say get a friend and a rope LOL. (or use a spring tool ?) which I don't have. Note: the techs were amazed at how big the spring was. The instructions on the radiator guard were ok but the drawings were too small and not great and took a bit of deciphering for me to figure it out as far as the brake line remove and replacement. Of course the last and easiest thing to install was the chain guide. I discovered a few of the thin aluminum radiator channels were already slightly bent with the stock plastic guard probably due to small rocks getting through the larger channels of the stock guard, so I do recommend installing the new guard to try and prevent this from happening. What I found interesting is that all the holes are there for these parts meaning they left out the accessories to lower the cost of the bike… duh. I would have preferred to have the option to pick which specific parts I really wanted installed at the time of purchase/delivery. I can see why the cost of the aftermarket rally kit was slightly more because of the time it takes to install these parts, but I do know that all the parts were not available at the time of the original promotion/delivery and would have had to taken the bike back in for the installation, or so it seems. I am not absolutely sure that Yamaha would have paid for the labor at that point. Other wise my point is moot. One thing I found is that you have to be really careful on the placement of the washers, spacers and bolts that required for all of these parts. If you are not much of a mechanic as I am not, you might consider having/paying the dealer figure it out for you as the instructions mention. I really like the Hepco and Becker hand guards as they leave the aesthetic of the OEM guards which yes, I like and and don’t take up space on the handlebar but do attach/mount to the head/handlebar holder. All of the H&B parts appear very strong and well engineered and I had no issues fitting them on the bike as the tolerances were exact. The paint also seems very good and thick. I was seriously considering the BarkBusters, but at the time of need, they were all “stuck in customs” out of stock and opted for the more expensive H&B solution. I am glad I did. More later…

    Crash Bars

    So I am still waiting on my Bike! Reviewing all the crash bars and I like the Touratech upper and lower for best overall protection. A bit expensive but seem to be worth it. What are your thoughts?
  14. Thanks for adding me to the forum. I have a deposit down for a new T700 Unicorn here at my dealer in the USA. Please tell me they do exist other wise he just fleeced me for a pocket of money!! Have been waiting for so long and don't understand why it is taking so long for this bike to get to the States? In my waiting I've owned a CB500X RR and now own a KTM 690r, I'm hoping the T700 will be the best of these two machines because my wife needs garage space for her new car and that leaves me room for only one bike, what will it be?
  15. Finally had the chance to go get this thing dirty and see how everything feels. To summarize, this is the best an adventure bike has ever felt to me off-road. Living in Phoenix, Arizona leaves me surrounded by mountains. Many people that have never been here don't realize that. They believe I live in something that more resembles the Sahara. So for those of us in the "Valley" that like to be outside, we all often drive a couple hours east to Four Peaks or north into the Bradshaw Mountains during the summer to escape the daily 110+ degree heat. Right now Four Peaks is completely engulfed in flames as lightning started a forest fire in a remote area resulting in one of the largest wildfires in the entire US right now. All roads in the area are closed and the smoke can be seen from hundreds of miles away. I'm fortunate enough to still have a family cabin in the Bradshaws in a little, former gold mining town called Crown King. The whole area is a hotbed for gold mining even to this day. The road we all use now used to be the railroad route back when this was all first settled. The history in the whole area is pretty incredible. You even ride through Cordes Junction which was the rest stop for the Pony Express riders to swap horses on their delivery runs. I've always liked looking out from a mountain so I really enjoy running away up here. I invited some guys from the regional Facebook group for dual sport riders and was joined by 4 of them Saturday morning. I warned everyone that these tires were obviously not perfect for the silt covered granite and softball-sized rocks we would be on for the day. Plus not having crash protection yet kinda stressed me out, but I wouldn't be last in the group or let that stop me from enjoying my recent purchase. I aired down to 22psi in both tires and set off from Crown King toward a town called Prescott. It's a bit more developed, but the road between the two is pretty rugged. This "road" is known as Senator Highway. That is a VERY misleading name because you need a high-clearance vehicle and 4x4 to get through in a car/truck. There is a couple neat places along the way to hang in the shade of the trees and see remnants of a past filled with optimistic miners hoping to strike gold. I wish I could have taken better pictures, but it is difficult to do when the road is so rough. One of these days I will remember to mount the GoPro before I leave home. The only work I did to the bike throughout 8 hours of riding was a few clicks of suspension adjustments here and there. I'm extremely surprised at how responsive the suspension adjustments are and I don't think I'll need to spend any money in that area for a while. For the record I'm 217lbs dressed, but not in moto gear. The specifics of what I changed and the other parts I've installed since delivery are in my build log. This is the 3rd full-size adventure bike I've had up here and it is by far the easiest to ride. The other two consisted of a fairly modified Vstrom 1000 and a highly modified KTM 990 Adventure. If I had to pick from the 3, it would be this bike every time. Compared to the other outings I've had in this area, I find myself hardly sore after and I wasn't even as exhausted. I think that speaks volumes to the overall package because I'm nowhere close to an expert rider in the dirt. Even the gearing seemed perfect for mixed riding. I could lug the engine down to about 6mph in first gear crawling up dry washes and then hammer the throttle up to 60mph on the open sections with plenty of power left. I didn't need fuel the entire day either which was a nice improvement from the guzzling the KTM used to do. Looking back, that was the best off-road voyage I've ever had on 2 wheels so I'm excited to do it again soon. The stock tires did far better than I had hoped, but in our fine sand showed their weakness as a major lack of lateral grip (corners = slow down or go down). I still think I'll be moving to a more aggressive combo. Current thought is a TKC80 front and Motoz Tractionator Adventure in the rear, but we shall see. After all that I headed home from the cabin the next day running 85mph down the mountain with traffic. Somehow the windscreen does a surprisingly good job for me and I still can't get over how smooth this bike is. As I pulled up to the house, I now have 406 miles showing. Hope you all had a fun weekend riding too!

  17. Yesterday I installed both the front and rear rally suspension from Rally Raid.uk. these things are awesome. Install was 5/5 difficultly imo, but I'm really happy I managed to figure everything out with zero instructions, taking apart the first fork leg was the true test, after I figured it out the second for leg took 30ish minutes. This bike is such a joy to work on compared to what I've had in past! If you have any questions let me know! The bike is literally 36inch seat height with the rally seat also, going to take some getting used to.

  19. Hate to admit it but I'm stymied by my sidestand. Lowered the bike now need to remove the kickstand so I can take it to a welder to have it shortened. There's a nut to remove on the left side. On the right side is a small bolt to remove. Can't figure out what to do next to get it loose. Anyone know? Thanks.
  20. We'll be adding the Tenere 700's to our fitment finder on 2wdw.com next week, along with our custom ECU flashing! While the Novel Coronavirus is still causing most countries around the world to be, more or less, shut down, our custom ECU flashing will be on sale for only $250 with free return shipping anywhere in the USA with the coupon code "covid19" on our site. Sale price applies to outsie of USA as well, but not the free return shipping. As we see more ECU's roll in, and our own test bike, we will be posting tons of dyno footage and videos in the coming weeks! The Tenere 700 has the same engine as the MT07. We have flashed hundreds, close to a thousand of these ECU's. Your engine makes around 63 hp to the wheel, stock. Let's fix that. Here's the scoop with the Tenere 700's that we have seen/flashed so far! All of the EU and AUS Tenere 700 ECU's that we have seen so far are IDENTICAL to EU MT-07's. The serial numbers, architecture, etc are completely unchanged! This is fantastic, because that means ALL of our custom mapping for every exhaust/intake system that we've developed over the past 6 years for the FZ/MT-07's are still PERFECTLY dialed in for these T7 bikes. The engines haven't changed one bit from the FZ/MT-07's, so the performance and throttle response improvements are IDENTICAL to that of the FZ/MT-07's. As for the US/CAN ECU's that we've seen so far, the ECU serial number is a BW3-8591A-00, which was one that neither FTECU or ourselves had yet seen. Luckily, we've had a few sent in already from our customers up in Canada, and we've been able to decrypt the ECU's with FTECU and retrace the slightly modified circuitry/pathway architecture. The fuel and ignition mapping architecture is, amazingly, unchanged from the FZ/MT-07's as well! This means that, just like with the EU models, we can input our custom fuel and ignition mapping without issue. We have our own Tenere 700 being brought in by our local dealer for any further testing and flashing development that we need to perform for future exhaust/intake systems that are manufactured for these bikes. We anticipate that the Tenere 700 we'll have for R&D will arrive sometime at the end of this month or the start of June at the latest! Because these engines and ECU's are essentially unchanged from the FZ/MT-07's, we already know exactly how these bikes will respond AND we've been able to prove those results anecdotally with the customers from the EU and Canada that have already utilized our ECU Flashing Service for these bikes! Here are some example graphs of what to expect with some of the exhaust systems. Keep in mind, these numbers/results are with street tires on. You WILL see lower numbers with knobby tires on a dyno roller due to additional drag and traction losses. A few examples Yoshimura R77 tune vs stock tune - An 8 hp increase! M4 slip on tune vs stock tune- 6 HP increase! Graves Exhaust Tune vs Stock tune A 9 hp increase!! More importantly than raw power is our ability to remove the massively annoying Decel Fuel Cut feature that is still built into these ECU's for emissions compliance. This feature makes the on/off throttle transition extremely twitchy, which is NOT at all what you want on any modern motorcycle. Nothing is more annoying (and unsafe) than coming into a corner, rolling off the throttle, and having the front end dive while you're already initiating a lean into an apex! We also have the ability to lower the cooling fan temperatures, just like we do on the FZ/MT-07's! 215 degrees Fahrenheit is simply too hot for optimal engine life and performance, so we lower the cooling fan temperatures to 195 degrees Fahrenheit on these engines.
  21. Finally took delivery after work yesterday so I'm wasting no time banging down break in miles and already adding mods to the bike. The ride home was 19 miles. I could tell right from the first startup that I was in for some pleasant surprises. I have to say that I'm not sure why I keep seeing people saying that the stock exhaust has a nice sound...it's far too quiet. As soon as I arrived home I took some temp readings, let the bike cool for about 20 minutes, and decided it was a good time to replace the entire exhaust. A couple weeks back after my claim was confirmed I started ordering parts. One of the first items was this Dominator GP slip on and their catless header. The whole thing is 304 stainless and at just under $500, seems to be the single best value for exhaust on these bikes. The install was only about 30 minutes. I would say someone that doesn't do much wrenching could still handle this in under and hour. The fit was pretty good, but the link (mid) pipe could use more bend to bring the muffler closer to the bike. A small thing in my eyes. I also made sure to weigh both the stock system and this new Dominator system. I want my build to be focused on losing weight in as many places as reasonably possible. Stock: Dominator: Yeah that is an 11.4 pound drop in 30 minutes of effort while making the bike look and sound absolutely wonderful! And you can hear it at this link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/389640761926578/permalink/568842260673093/ It is a bit louder than most people may want, but it doesn't drone for the rider and my ears do not hurt after I stop. They do include a quiet insert in the box which does help cut down some sound as well. I have now ridden 60 miles with this installed and have zero regrets. More parts are already sitting in my shop so updates will be coming fast. Happy to answer any questions you have.
  22. Anybody hear if the " rally " version of the 700 will be coming to the states. Its definitely my preferred colors.
  23. This was from a few days ago. Realized I needed to buy auxiliary lights on the night ride home from this though. The bike has great lighting going straight but any kind of turn and you're steering into pitch black. Hope you guys like the photos!
