Super Tenere air filter servicing
« on: December 21, 2010, 09:41:19 am »
 I was reading the  Super Tenere owners manual and it says SEE YOUR DEALER for air filter servicing. ::) So since the bike will see service in dusty areas how hard is it to get at for service? I have a FJR and a KLR and these have air filters that are super easy to get at and I  was hoping the Tenere would be the same. :'(

Looks simple from the pictures on Wasp's thread, post #7  http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=595933

Gas tank tilts back and you have free access to airbox to remove filter.  They have different filters than what will come on the U.S. model most likely.

The air filter is a doddle to get at.  No problem at all.  I fact the bike is very well set up for stripping and servicing.  Very well engineered in many respects.  Yamaha used their knowledge of this type of performer from the previous incarnation.

Excellent now I know how to get at the air filters and I want the foam filters just like they get in Australia for our dusty gravel roads in Western Canada!! :)

i'll have to try me some of that Doddling when i change the air filter.

Oh, and I wonder how long it will be before K & N has an air filter for this out? Hmm!!! I have used them on all sorts of bikes in the past.

Not sure if its a good Idea to  change the air filter for some with more airflow. I guess more air flow means less catch of dirt...

I also used K&N but now I do some off-road and I want an air filter that catch the unwanted stuff not let it pass...

From Wasp's thread on advrider, I'm unclear whether the Australian importer mod is to add an extra foam filter in the airbox leaving the paper in place, or complete replacement of the paper filter.  It looks like the foam is downstream of the where the paper would go, so I'd guess the paper element is simply removed.

I hope for the US bikes, we keep the standard paper element as paper generally does a better job of protecting the engine.  It can become impractical on a dirt bike as you'd be replacing a $25 element every few rides - that's why dirt bikes tend to use foam - but I don't think most S10's will see that much dust where clogging of paper will be an issue.

It looks like the Super Tenere opens and has air cleaner access like the FZ1 I used to have. I like the way the air intake is positioned up high and out of the wind, and bug-path. It must be a Yamaha thing.
