The move down wasn't easy and spent a year living in a caravan travelling back to Essex every other weekend to s...

Re: Calling All Tenere Owners

You don't like the ktm? When it's running I love it. It starts on the button when cold but is a complete pain in the ass when it's hot, I only bought it as a cheap winter hack to save the XT1200z from the dreaded salt and to be perfectly honest I'm a big bloke (6'3" and 20 stone plus)and it looks p...

Re: Calling All Tenere Owners

Count me in.

I've just decided the out my KTM 690 Enduro for a XT660Z to go with my XT1200Z so I'll have an all Tenere garage. So I should qualify on both counts.

Re: A few questions

Hi Log onto carpe tdm forum for all answers and more help. They are a really friendly and helpful bunch. On the early engine you can swap the plug leads over and see if the engine misfire changes to the other cylinder as it's a "big bang" engine where both cylinders fire simultaneously. HTH Tim

Re: A few questions

TDM's are pretty bulletproof and usually just run and run.

Re: Changing from Bridgestone Battlewing to Michelin Anakee

Changed from Avon Distanzia's to Anakee 2's on my XTZ750 and never regretted it, did find I had to pump them up slightly harder than the distanzia's as the front felt a little skittish at first, once I did that though they were superb tyres and gave huge amounts of grip in both wet and dry condition...

Add me to the list aswell, not sure if the rest of the Devon mob are coming along yet (so it should be relatively quiet without John waking everybody up early in the morning).
