Tenere 700 side fairings problem

Question

Reeko81
Posted (edited)

Hi all folks. I was working on my bike and changed the original spark with some new iridium ones. When reassembling all I noticed these rubbers falling apart from my spoiler (side cover). I can’t remember where they were glued and this is getting me mad! I hope you can help me... I know for sure someone here removed before me this spoiler/cover and maybe can remember where they should be...

thanks a lot!

Solved... rubbers have a peculiar shape and they only fit on this position

I found one of those next to my bike when I crashed it once.

Couldn't work out what it was. I wasn't even sure if it came off my bike or it just happened to be there.

Now I know 🙂

 

The bike doesn't feel any different with out it, so it's no great loss IMO.

I do not even recall my bike having those when I removed the covers to swap out the big orange signal lights to LEDs. Brand new bike never crashed and so far as I know first time off with the covers. Maybe the US bikes do not have these?

I don’t think mine had them.  I took both sides off when installing the Yamaha radiator guard.  Must have fell off on the way over from Japan!

Based on the indentation, do you think that goes on the frame first and then rests against the fairing? Odd that it would just be stuck on the fairing like that.

It has a layer of glue on the side that supposed to keep it attached to the fairing. I found one on the floor as well when was installing crash bars.

It probably had them and they fell out, like it did for me.

I've also noticed the other foam padding is falling off.

I think Yamaha cheaped out on the glue.

Any chance you'd share the iridium part number? I’m interested in doing that as well.

If you look closely at the back (inside) of the various panels there are little guide lines or indents where the various rubber bits or foam bits go...a bit of super glue and alls well.  Cheers,  Steve

Thank you!  When i hit around 1400 miles on my Yamaha SXS 850 twin, i changed to synthetic oil and put the Iridium plugs in at the same time and it made a noticeable difference. Nothing huge but it starts, idles and seems to accelerate just slightly but noticeable more smoothly. Thinking ill do the same on the T7.

I found this piece too and still haven't a clue where it goes or what it's supposed to do.

Got the same problem with new bike. These things just fall down when I removed the side panels.

I just put these back with more serious 2 sided tape.
