    I have a 2023 Super Tenere, the owner's manual says 91 octane fuel?

    Hello “WJBertrand” and “Campion”, All of my comments are based on recognized US standards and terms: You are correct, I mistakenly typed 89 RON, instead of the “95 RON” which was reflected in the photo of the VEC sticker from my bike. The notation should have stated the following, “The actual...

    I have a 2023 Super Tenere, the owner's manual says 91 octane fuel?

    Hello “Campion”, Can you please clarify THE SPECIFIC FUEL RECOMMENDATION, which is located on the Vehicle Emission Control (VEC) sticker, which is most likely located on the right side of the bike, near the upper shock mount, on the black plastic box which houses the ABS and is under the seat...

    The anything thread.

    Lagunitas IPA is produced in Petaluma, in Northern California… The bottle shown in the posting by “stefanonhiss10” does not appear to be non-alcoholic… it is probably the standard 6.2% alcohol by volume variety. It is very tasty! I had no idea Lagunitas exported to Europe, good for them! But...

    Goin for a boat ride

    I will be saying prayers for you, hoping that the huge Canadian storm doesn’t continue its southwestern trajectory and interrupt your fun ride. You might need two balaclavas, L O L!!! Brrrrrr! :eek:

    Recently started stuttering at low RPMs, loss of power in high gears over 4k RPM

    Hello, Do you know if the prior owner changed out the cam chain tensioner? If the chain jumped a tooth, you might have all of the symptoms which you describe. You might look through the old records and see if that work was done. It’s a critical component on a motorcycle of that era.

    First ride on my new-to-me bike
