    2013 super10 rear shock removal

    They're just edge glued together using Titebond II wood glue. No reinforcements.

    2013 super10 rear shock removal

    The individual wedges are 7 3/4" long by 1 3/8" wide. If your hardware store doesn't carry them (they're called shims), then go to a home improvement center like Lowe's or Home Depot.

    2013 super10 rear shock removal

    When I did mine, I just jiggled the swingarm while pushing out the bolt, and it came out. I'm assuming you have a centerstand on your bike. If so, there's another way to take the pressure off the bolt in the swingarm so you can remove the shock, if you aren't able to physically lift the wheel...

    Swingarm bearing question

    Thanks Cycledude. I last took my swingarm off in April 2019 when the bike had 55,000 miles on it, to do what was supposed to be the every two year service (I was a little late LOL). I greased the bearings with Belray waterproof grease when I did the service. I'm not sure how much...

    Swingarm bearing question

    Have any of you (especially the higher mileage riders) ever had to replace any of the bearings in the swingarm components based on excessive wear? I have 85,000 miles on my 2014 and so far, I've the only bearing I've had go bad was a rear wheel bearing. I don't have any symptoms of a problem...

    Looking for a Super Tenere Rear wheel assembly.

    That's excellent news, pilleway! I'm glad you were able to find a replacement, and I hope it works out well for you.

    What is a high mileage for a Super Tenere?

    I'm at 85,000 now on my 2014; that's 20,000 more than the last time I posted on this thread 21 months ago. I just took it in to have the valves checked for the third time. The clearances haven't changed since I last had it done at 55,000 miles back in March 2019. I had the shop put in a new...

    Anyone using a windshield bag?

    Do you carry a whistle to signal for help if you need it? If you do, I'd carry that on my person rather than on the bike. It won't be much use to you if you crash and you're separated from your motorcycle.

    Getting sucked in by the 'ADV tractor beam'..

    That was my experience also. The Harley's laid back seating position and overall size makes it seem like it should be really comfortable, and I put 50,000 miles on it, but it didn't take long at all to sell me on the upright seating position on an ADV bike. Way easier on the body in general...

    Getting sucked in by the 'ADV tractor beam'..

    It wasn't an impulse in my case. Over my first twenty years of riding I'd been gradually getting larger highway oriented bikes, until I bought a Harley Road King in '04. I had that for 8 years, but after a couple of cross country trips to places out in the Southwest, I started to notice that...

    Beak?

    I might have to steal your idea, Tenman. It has that bitchin' 60's British sports car look.

    Beak?

    That looks cool. Is that just expanded steel mesh?

    Beak?

    I probably could have used one out in Colorado a couple years ago. It might have deflected the bird that ended up getting stuck in my right side air intake.

    Looking for a Super Tenere Rear wheel assembly.

    You're welcome pilleway. I figured that shipping to a country outside the US would probably drive the price up to a ridiculous amount, but it was worth a shot.

    Which one to try and buy

    Man, I love the look of that bike.
