The liquid tape method is probably what I would try.
The trip reset button on mine often doesn’t work worth crap, often have to press it about 10 times in order to get it to work, sometimes it works fine.
I don’t really think the starter needs to crank much faster it just needs to crank stronger so it doesn’t sound like the perfectly good battery is half dead.
My Goldwing has 573,000 miles on the original starter and it has never sounded like the battery was half dead. Every Tenere I’ve ever...
I must be the only one that believes the main issue is the starter simply is not powerful enough for this engine, sure it works fine most of the time but if it actually came from the factory with a more powerful starter we wouldn’t be having this conversation.
There are a couple of OEM Tenere seats on eBay right now
I’ve ridden to Alaska three different times and even though most folks say it’s difficult finding motels we never had much trouble getting a room when we wanted one. For this rally I would recommend booking a room in Whitehorse well in advance
