    Replacing clutch lever

    FJR and Tenere levers use the same perches so you're OK there. Make sure the clutch master cylinder push rod goes into the brass bushing hole properly. You're doing it blind and it's a bitch so you'll need to guide it in as best you can. I've found it's best to slightly angle the bushing hole...

    Safety recall notice received - Front brake switch

    Received recall(s) today for Tenere and FJR switches. Both were in the same envelope too. A year or so ago I replaced the FJR switch but it looks like that replacement was prior to the new PN revision. Damn. Not a quick job on the FJR. The pigtail is 36" long with the connector buried in the LH...

    Hi from a Super Ten wannabe owner

    Welcome from metro Seattle! Go with a GEN II non-ES, add aftermarket suspension and you'll have a great machine. Good luck with your Tenere search. Lots of bikes out there and don't overlook a fly-n-ride too. Great way to get to know the machine. Happy hunting! ~G
