    Gen2 start question

    Hmmm. Some of you didn’t read original post carefully. The random hard start has plagued this bike before and after replacement of plugs, air filter, valve check, throttle bodies synchronization, etc. Also, very intermittent along with the issue that my location in Texas doesn’t experience a lot...

    Gen2 start question

    Plugs were changed at 26k along with air filter and performed a valve check (truly thankful all were within spec).

    Gen2 start question

    Another data point. I just checked temperatures... Bike 62. Thermometer 57. Subaru is 59. All very close. I don’t think the sensor is bad but maybe the tolerance on it is slightly such that it reads a bit high; maybe just high enough to cause the occasional hard start.

    Gen2 start question

    Agree with comments. But note my earlier comments that temperature readout is high on the bike cold; hasn’t been ridden in a few days. So engine heat won’t have an impact in this situation. I have factory manual and below is how to test sensor which I’ll do once I get a multimete; mine broke a...

    Gen2 start question

    FYI. Bike always starts. And the difficulty of starting is a random occurrence. Also, the temperature reading will rise slightly if sitting traffic or not moving but so does my car, Subaru, temperature. However, at highway speeds both bike and car come down. I’m just noticing the S10 is...

    Gen2 start question

    Thoughts and comments wanted. Background: My 2017 non ES with 35k miles which I checked the valves, changed air filter, plugs at 26k has occasionally been hard to start when cold. I live in Texas so this isn’t often. Also, the bike has stalled three times in the almost two years I have owned...

    What you did to your Tenere today??!!

    Speaking of painting... I painted the Hepco Becker skid plate on my bike. The stock aluminum finish was okay but stood out too much so the other day while in WalMart I picked up a can of Rust Oleum. I went for a short ride afterwards but didn't notice any horsepower gain.:rolleyes:

    where did you TAKE your Tenere today?

    Since I had installed a new front tire, I needed a test ride. A little ride in the Texas hill country. Needed to try out the wet traction capabilities with a small water crossing.

    Another Cold Hard Start...

    Cycledude, regarding popping sounds while slowing down, I would say no or nothing unusual. Mad hatter, I’m in New Braunfels. We should meetup sometime. Twenty seconds would seem like eternity to hold the starter button. The bike typically starts within a few seconds.

    Another Cold Hard Start...

    EricV, I installed stock NGK spark plugs. I store the bike in my garage, except for trips, and all hard start issues were after riding all day. No short startups and then shut down. No battery tender since I ride the bike almost daily and, such as my recent trip, all day long. Normally, bike...

    Another Cold Hard Start...

    Bike is a 2017 non ES model and resides in the Texas hill country area. First time the bike didn't start was on a cold day, approximately 50 degrees F. Bike had almost 24k miles with receiving only oil and filter changes. I pushed the starter button a few times and heard it fire but wouldn't...

    Experience of a Bias Front Tire

    FYI. I needed a front tire while on a trip in Canada. The only tire available in stock was a Dunlop "Harley Davidson" tire which happened to be biased and not radial. Also, slightly different in size; 100/90-19 versus stock size of 110/80R-19. I determined new tread was better than no tread so I...

    Wondering in Mexico

    Garrydymond, thank you for continuing to share your adventures. Also, congratulations on the granddaughter. Regarding your case, probably a combination of the plastic hardening along with fatigue. If caught earlier, you could have stopped drilled the cracks and added some reinforcement such as...

    What you did to your Tenere today??!!

    A few weeks ago I installed a lowering link and raised the forks to lower the bike approximately a little less than an inch. Afterwards, I noticed the bike didn't lean as far on the sidestand. However, the other day while examining the sidestand I noticed the foot or pad didn't touch flat on the...

    Crash Bar Shootout - What do you like, what do you think is crap?

    Madhatter, good description on how to do a U-turn. Unfortunately, I recently messed up. Fortunately the only damage was to the left stock Yamaha guard; some gouges. And the gear shift lever was bent, which I was able to bend back. I fully expected more damage so was pleasantly surprised...
