Off-road mode?

Recommended Posts

Has any Tenere 700 owner discovered any off-road mode on the Tenere 700?

This only means that the ABS is switched off.

Yeah, hold ABS button and rear brake ABS is turned off and ‘OFF-ROAD’ appears on the dash. That’s it.

Not only rear abs off but also front abs off...both wheels off...

I'm wondering if it is possible to  make a normal on/off switch, for example by bypassing ABS fuse (if there is a separate ABS fuse).

This solution should switch off the ABS even while driving as I permanently forget to do it after every stop. What do you guys think about it ?

The best switch would be the one to turn off only the rear wheel abs only...

I agree with you, this would be the best, but for the moment the question is if we can do any switch at all ...

 I'll try to check cables and fuses during this weekend, maybe I'll find the way. Or maybe someone knows it already ?

So the button on the dash you can't press it while riding, you have to get the bike stopped?

Exactly.  Very frustrating,  believe me  😀

following....  I wan't an ABS off switch/bypass.

 

I put one on my xtz1200.   I did put a spacer in the rear ABS pick up to confuse the ABS on my T7, it worked well at permanently disabling the ABS, and left the Speedo working, however through a few cycles of the key - it threw an engine warning light...    so need another solution.

It is one step past a switch/bypass, but @tonyubsdell is the only one I am aware of that has done an abs delete, in his weight reduction quest. 
 

completely removing the fist sized abs pump saves probably 3 pounds of mass but at a price. 
the display shows „error“, a yellow abs light at the low right hand side shines yellow as does an angine failure light. 
a test ride proved the loss of speed, measured distance, fuel consumption. 
after refitting the abs module everything was fine again. 
beeing an „electrical dyslectic“ i had to use my (some say limited) common sense. 
the plug that connects to the abs pump has a (red) electrical supply and a black minus pole on the opposite side. 
in between there are 7 pairs of pins that provide the exchange of electrical info between the abs module and the main electrical harness. 
i took the risk and tried different combinations of pins and electricity leading cables on the plug (not connected to the abs pump at that moment)
best i got was a dimmed abs light on the display. error sign stayed on, speed reading was still not functional. 
my guess is that i need a female plug instead of the abs unit to make the bike‘s cpu think the abs is connected. 

i am confident that in the near future the combined wisdom in this forum will come up with a solution for this problem my limited brain cannot solve. 
c‘m on..!
and thanks in advance...

Truly, not knowing. A resistor, probably 2-4 ohm would be enough. Disconnect plug at abs module. Make/purchase plug, add resistor to circuit. Should not harm anything. The computer just needs to see something is there.

One wire will be power

one signal

one ground

I suspect the signal and ground would be the bridge for the resistor.

Then again.

Power might come off computer, but I bet there is a fuse for it, therefore signal and ground.

And the other nice thing about a system like this. Is plug and play.

when you hit the ass fault, plug the abs in

ABS Delete isn't that straight forward with any of the modern bikes. You'll get fault lights trying to use a single resistor. FTECU develops ABS Delete blocks that you plug into the ABS module itself, but there is no control through the ECU whatsoever for the ABS system on any Yamaha models. 

 

Until they develop an ABS Delete kit for these bikes, riders will unfortunately be stuck with the ABS control provided through the stock dash.

An abs delete for the rear wheel only by Yamaha or anyone else would be welcome...

Sometimes technology just sucks.

What's wrong with just turning it off with the button in the dash? It stays off until you switch the engine off. I ran it like that for miles and several hours (off), both on and off road in the Pyrenees. You just have to remember to hold the button down again if you switch the engine off.
