Euro5 with Outback Motortek and Yamaha Rally Bash Plate


Recommended Posts

Some time ago I asked if anyone with a Euro5 Tenere had fitted the Yamaha Rally skid plate if they also had the outback motortek crash bars. I had seen that this combination was possible on the Euro4 version with some adjustment.


I found a few things. They are not compatible out the box. I definitely wanted the OM crash bars in red. I found fitting them tricky especially where the right lower clamp fits to the support rail. There is very little room to avoid touching the sensor that comes out the Cat. By following the instructions to keep fittings loose and pushing upwards on the that right hand clamp I fitted the bars without them touching the Cat sensor.


Coming to the bash plate, you can make both parts fit together though with a little work to remove some aluminium. I attach a few pictures. I am not a real engineer and worked it through as best i can with a hacksaw and small dremmel. As it was trial and error when finished i could see after that i needn't have removed as much as i did. But its good enough for me.

The catalytic converter is covered up nicely though!

I hope this may help others thinking of this combination.
