I bought this bike used. I really liked the Mitas on my last bike. They are quiet on the tarmack and bite pretty good on the dirt.

Today I fitted a 2015 kick stand onto my 2013 Tenere.

I sometimes have a problem getting the side stand down when I'm wearing my Adventure boots.  I know the gen 2 has an upgraded stand over the gen 1.

I havn't tried it out on the road or with my boots on but I am confident it is an upgrade. the much larger lever? on the stand to help with lowering the stand really helps and I think the newer gen 2 is a fraction longer than the original  improving the lean angle on the stand a little.

And if anyone is wondering it is a simple swap with the exact same fittings on both stands.

Installed my modified side-stand.  Picked it up from the powder coater after work.  Now I just need some soft ground to try it out on.

Reset my neutrino black box, replaced a headlight fuse, and got myself ready to test my new gloves tomorrow.

Doing some maintenance and checking connectors.
Can anybody tell me how to remove this panel? I have the two screws on the side but can’t figure out what’s holding the middle and I only have a 2012 Service Manual and this part is new.

Doesn’t seem like it but it’s just press fit into there. Use some steady upward pressure and it will pop off.   Don’t go crazy though.

I'm sure I had to remove the small piece was the Yamaha logo on it first and there was a fixing behind that.

Thanks! Always slightly nerve-racking when you tug on plastic, hoping it will come off without cracking.

The little triangular piece that the Yamaha logo is on will pull forward. Then there is a plastic pop pin and two screws to remove the bigger piece.

Installed an Altrider rear rack to replace the Givi one I had on the bike. The Altrider one moves the top box back further to make more room for a passenger. My custom seat done by Laam Custom Seats arrived today as well as my new Givi Outback panniers to replace the Yamaha ones that came on the bike. Now they match the Givi top box I bought last summer. I am still waiting for the parts to arrive so I can install Yamaha heated grips. I also picked up a set of Piaa driving lights that I will install at the same time as the grips. That way I only have to mess with the wiring once.

Didi you take the pic with your phone?  They now include a datapoint to indicate orientation when the pic is taken.
