I've been wanting to install a high front fender on my 17 Super Tenere. Found a couple posts about it, but all from years ago. Anyone done this recently and have any advise?

Maybe I’m missing it, or my account is too new, but I’m not seeing a “Start Conversation” button on any profile.

uptop, try tapping on the letter symbol next to your name. See if start conversation opens as an option. Then enter MFP in the address block

mengel1348,
Greetings from NY and welcome aboard this excellent forum.
I do not have a high fender on my S10, it is a beak:

It was made by a UK company named Powerbronze and it would
fit a GEN1 S10 as a simple bolt-on. Not sure if it is still available for purchase in the US.
I believe they had a different version for GEN2s since the area under the headlight housing is
equipped with some sort of trim panel and a different bracket.
I bought the beak from Powerbronze's US distributor (cannot recall name) at the time which
was located in Michigan IIRC.
A few are currently available on eBay:

If you enter "Yamaha Super Tenere Beak" in google you will get a lot of hits.

Regarding an actual high fender, I believe the few times I saw a HF on a S10 on the internet or on other ADV forums it was a generic
ACERBIS or Malcolm Smith Racing MX/Enduro fender that was modified to fit a S10 with some trimming and simply fabbed metal brackets.
Hope this helps a bit.

All good, no need to stand corrected. For all intents and purposes the beak can also be classified as a quasi-mini, high fender.... :cool:
No, I didn't think it through. He said high fender, and I pictured yours. When you explained the difference, I thought "doh!", yeah, there's a difference. He even referenced an actual high fender pic in another thread, and I didn't catch on. It did look bad ass with a 21" wheel too. So, I don't know if he's after a beak or a motocross fender.

I'm definitely looking for the high motocross fender look. I've got a fender for YZ450 on the way. Will post pics when it's done, hopefully sooner than later.

Sent you a PM that might help with a mounting bracket.

If you are looking for a couple of extra inches for functionality to deal with mud accumulation, check out this kit... it's from a member here (right?)


I've looked at it several times and conversed with the guy but still haven't pulled the trigger.

If you are looking for the full height motocross look... I just can't visualize how'd mount / clearances etc. But if you get it done post it up here . :)

As they wisely note at the bottom of the info on the kit;

Its noted that this kit raises the fender by 50mm and may come in contact with any additional lighting mounted under the factory headlights.
I did something similar long ago and found out the hard way with the light I had mounted under the headlights that at full bottom out, contact would occur. Snapped the OEM fender at the mounting points quite efficiently. :confused:
