Don't think so. Not too sure how it works. Ifit float like in some cars I suppose you could bend it as trial and error but I'd be wary of trying it. Bugged me at first but got used to it. Now that its run in and restricted I get about 205 to 215 to reserve.

Rox Risers - has anyone fitted these to their Tenere yet?

After yesterdays jaunt, I'm considering fitting some which will give a 2" lift, however I really don't want to mess about getting longer cables. Will I need to?

yep same here, if some one can confirm this i will get some.

AS for the fuel guage...its mad. did 270 miles of motorway / A roads and bits of town and wasnt even on reserve (on 1 bar)...filled her up and could only get 13.5 litres in! When riding the passes in the Lake district it didnt know what was going on...i had 2 bars, then 4, then 1 then 2 and so on

Had the same on the Fazer, thought at one point where the hell did all my fuel go then realized I has just gone over the edge as it were. I dont get those sort of hills round here.
The secret of a long life is knowing when its time to go.

the fuel guage is normal ...you have 7 litres reserve ...you may not have noticed
or may ...thet when the last bar flashes it starts to count up how many miles you have travelled on reserve ...i have had 78 miles with the bar flashing but i would
bottle out at 60 to be safe
i have 3inch raisers on the tenere ..which raises the bars another inch ..ove also cowhorned them a little which doesnt bother me normal riding but makes them a good angle off road ...the 3inch raisers are all i need im 6ft 1in tall but you may have more to come with the rox
mine were cheapies from mand p 39 quid you need m10 75ml bolts to fit them

xmas present off me little grandson ...had to be fitted martin ... if you measure bikes by the amount of fun you have had the tenere is up there near at the top of my list its been a hoot .. a great bike for me ...and still is
if it was a little closer to the gound and 25ks less heavy it would be close to perfect

Look what just turned up

Nice set of Rox Risers (7/8" / 22mm) + a rather tasty Motion Pro 22mm wrench / tyre lever (super lightweight only about 100g !).

Both of these bits ordered from Chris @ www.twowheeltrekkers.co.uk/ (as seen advertised in ABR magazine) yesterday at 3.30pm and with me this morning Great service!

Nice bike .

I'm also new to the Tenere having bought one about a month ago and I'm very pleased with it. I've also got a KTM enduro bike (a 450 EXC-R) and whilst it obviously feels completely different to that bike I have to say I've found the Tenere a lot easier to ride on the greenlanes than I was expecting.

I'm going to get one of those Adventurespec bashplates/bars next week.

Mine has got:
Bar risers and Renthal Fat Bars
The Kev fuel mod
Leo Vince cans

I'm also going to change the Michelin Siracs for Conti TKC80s next week too.

Nice bike.
I also have one those fancy wrenches for the rear wheel nut.
Manual says 75 ftlbs, make sure someone has not over tightened the nut before you use your wrench or it could bend.
I also use those Michelan sirac's, but then I ride mainly on roads that are usually wet.

Well in between the torrential downpours I took the opportunity to fabricate a auxillary socket holder (courtesy of Dark Knights design - further up this thread), its not as well finished, but I only had some basic tools available

Next up was fitting the 22mm Rox Risers, I was pleased to find that I had enough slack in the various cables and hoses to mount these.
