I notice you are in central VA; I am just north of Richmond in Henrico Co. Have a 2012 ST with about 30K miles. (also an FJR)
Did you ever find a suitable scanner? Have you ever checked / adjusted your valves. I'm looking for someone who has done it to look over my shoulder. . . . I have a very well equipped workshop with a Handy Lift and machining and welding equipment.
I have a 2012 Super Tenere, non ES with low mileage. Hoping to take a cross country trip next year, so getting used to the bike now. I first need to modify the kick stand, as I feel it leans too much. Next, need to modify the seat to a lower position. Then, looking for any mod that can make the bike a great ride cross country.
I have 18' S10ES which I'm considering your suggstion to use Pro Taper EVO Adventrue Bar in hope to raise the bar about an ~1" up and ~1" closer to the rider. Would this bar conversion require switching to longer brake/clutch lines?
Im very rarely near my office phone and not often by a phone. If you like you can PM or email me anytime and I will be happy to write back. Or shoot me your number and I will be happy to try it out when I have a second.
I like talking "Tenere" stuff and would be happy to help... Thanks ~ Jaxon
