48mm KYB SSS Forks installed

G'day

 

It's been a long project with lots of learning along the way, but I have successfully installed 48mm KYB SSS forks into my Tenere 700.

I took the project on while in C19 lock down. 

I've attached a short video on how I did it, the required parts and modifications I did to the bike.

 

I understand that this is not for everyone and the standard or upgraded 43mm forks will be fine for 99.9% of Tenere 700 riders. 

As mentioned in the Video, I believe Cory from @Camel ADV may have a kit in the pipeline, which would make this a lot easier.

 

As for the bike feel/handling, its next level.

 

Cheers Jeff

Well done! Swapping these fork in to the T7 is very involved but worth the time and effort IMO.

A little Birdie told me that Yamaha will be releasing SSS forks as GTYR upgrade parts to fit directly on the T-7, and a future T7 will come with them as stock.

They'd be crazy not to.

It was definitely worth the effort Cory, different bike.

@CruizinNo doubt like the Norden 901, it will more than likely cost half the price of the bike.
