Ténéré 700: Suspension serviceability & wear parts as one of the reason for upgrade after 40000km?

This is a bit odd video because it is about the suspension upgrade but talks about different aspect of advantages to the suspension upgrade - serviceability.


I've managed to destroy the Yamaha OEM shock around 36000km right after the second Dinaric rally. The first service at 20k was quite routine but this one gave me a lot of headache because it was difficult to get hold of the top rubber bushing which I destroyed. So I took a plunge and upgraded the rear shock to the Tractive Suspension not only to improve the performance but really to be able to service the damn thing properly.
