Claim seems like it might be accurate but that sure doesn’t guarantee it will fit a Tenere.
You would most likely need bigger caps-covers.
I didn’t see any mention of lumens output.
Good luck with whatever you decide to do !
Here are the specs.

I can invert the o ring of the LED bulb to save some 4 or 5 mm may be...if you see the picture the external part is wider than the one that goes inside the headlight...just thinking loudly here

I know you don't want to change the caps, but I can tell you from experience that Deftoner's caps are excellent replacements and the added room really open up your options for replacement lights.
I assume you are going for something similar to this?

Out of curiosity, is this claim accurate?
What they’re claiming, simple dimensions, are probably accurate, but while the location of
The source is important, that’s hardly the whole story.

What I don’t like about LED “bulbs” compared to OEM halogen or HID lighting is that the LEDs aren’t emitting light at 360° from the source, just two sides. The headlight reflector is designed to collect and reflect light from
A 360° source.

I’ve not been satisfied with either the pattern or the amount of light on the road with the LEDs I’ve tried, including Cyclops and various eBay/Amazon off brands. I finally bit the bullet and installed an HID kit.

Yes something exactly like this...I have a white s10 too!
Ordering the 3d printed caps would be a costly proposition if I include international shipping....

Agreed. I just went straight to Deftoner by PM went I swapped in LEDs. His caps are great and I got lighting info directly from him via PM. Cool guy and product. I second just getting the caps and open your options on lighting.

I bought these to give them a try, as they are the same size as a standard bulb and don’t require an extended housing as there is no fan on the end. Hoping I don’t have any heating issues

They appear to just replace existing halogen no new caps or canbur decoders or whatever just plug on as if an oem halogen
