What have you done for your T7 today?

@DT675 80 or 85nm sounds good for you. With the 85nm you’ll be using less preload clicks to get it sitting right and have more available to compensate for weight of any luggage. The balance will be fine as the rear spring is too soft compared to the front.

That’s exactly what I was thinking! 
 

Tonight I finished up installing the Oxford Adventure heated grips, tapped into the factory aux connector.   These are my 1st ever heated grips on a bike! I agree with the few out there who don’t like the controller sticking off the handlebars but otherwise I think the controller itself is fine. Anyway I straightened out the mounting bracket and mounted it to the bobble bolt. You can’t reach and press it with any finger but a left thumb press is super easy.

Looks good. 

 

A suggestion,  rather than run the harness all the way down to the exposed frame,  run it under the front of the seat.   There is a raw aluminum bracket at the front of the seat / back of the gas tank that you can slip the strap under.   Much cleaner.

Thanks. I do plan to do that, I had just got them and wanted to get them on the bike quick for that ride. I will likely be doing that soon. I'm just concerned there won't be much room for the buckles and getting them done up and undone for fueling

 I also went with the 90 rear spring and fork spacers.  Has transformed the bike and ready to carrying some camping gear in the brilliant Enduristan Blizzard XL Bags without a worry.

I agree the Bike is transformed with the springs, I have to install the fork spring washers over winter. 

Cheers!

I have a similar size Wolfman.  There's adequate room for the buckles with some adjustability still available.   I generally only unbuckle the front and then slide the tank bag onto the front of the seat,  leaving the back of the bag still buckled,  and the gas fill exposed.  

 

Couple of fast pics I grabbed on my way out the door:

What are the front buckles like on the Wolfman? I assume they're similar. It just seemed easier to unbuckle the back, but I'll give it a go from the front

I added a powerlet socket to the right size of the dash. Wired directly to the battery for heated vest and battery tending. Note to anyone else looking to do this, the 48" Powerlet "kit" is the perfect length for our bikes. 

Also installed Oxford Adventure heated grips while I had everything apart, wired into the OEM plug on the right side.

Did you get them from an  aussie supplier?

Go and see Clive at Motorcycle Biz. He is at Brandy Hill near Raymond Terrace.  What he doesnt know about bikes and Teneres in particular aint worth knowing IMHO.  I got him to supply and fit mine and couldnt be happier.

Transplanted a switched power fuse block from my Versys to the T7. Hooked up a USB charger plug with voltage indicator which got installed on the RHS of the dash. Managed to do it with only taking of the side panel, very fiddly though.

 

Also installed some Koso Apollo heated grips and hooked them up to said fuse box. Didn't use the supplied glue but opted for some hairspray. Have been using that method for years without issues.

 

Mounted some Lomo crash bars bags to the OEM crash bars. The Yam crash bars wouldn't have been my first choice, but they came with the bike (bought second hand with 2500km on the clock).

They are the same as the back.   1" Fastex buckle.  Male on the free end,  female on the bag.   Can we still use "Male/ female" to describe that?  Ummm... non binary gender neutral attachment point?

What's the polarity orientation of that plug?  What color wire is + and  - ?

The plug is a 3 wire plug. I only used the solid red wire and the black wire. Black being ground and red being power.

Oh thanks.   I hadn't actually looked at the plug yet.   I assumed the wiring would be non typical colors.  I feel dumb now!

Yep, 90nm spring did a great job. The bike feels quality now and rides a lot nicer on and off-road 👍

Just to clarify for anyone else, when I asked I was inquiring about the two wire accessory plug, not the three wire.  The wiring for the two wire is brown w/ yellow stripe + and black - .
