Just bought a 2010 gen 1 Tenere.
After helping fix / repair & otherwise faff about with my mates 'Tenors' over the past couple of years I thought I'd join the ranks of 'Tenor' owners after taking the piss out of them for so long.:):):)
My day to day work bike is a XT600e (So a 1/2 pint 'Tenor' ;)) which I've had for years and its never let me down. Hopefully its grown up off-spring will be the same.
I've got a few jobs to do like painting / powder coating corroded brackets and a couple of modifications here and there.
Living, working and still breathing in the fresh air of Herefordshire, England.
Cheers!

With the ECU flash, can I just send them the ECU and what sort of gains did you have?

Cheers Rob.

bloody hell, i lived in brackla for a few yrs coychurch now, but barry boy for 40 of them.

yep you can send chris your ecu for flashing, i rode there because i,m an hour away he had it on the dyno for 4 hrs,

he flashed both mods seperatly, but my gen 1 like all was strangled in the first 3 gears, but now it pulls like a train full revs in all gears plus huge torque improvements.
but its for me getting rid of that awfull strangled first 3 gears

Chris is indeed a wizard with ecus, he did my zx14r. I did think about using Dynotech for my S10 as they are only about 6 miles from me but I’ve changed my mind and will ride the 70 miles to see Chris. Booked in for October £300

The original silver sided Tenere, our first view here in the US. Then we waited, and waited...
