So, I recently bought a Yamaha Tenere 700. This is a bike that I’ve been eyeing for years, mostly due to how good it looks. But seeing what these bikes are capable of, plus the huge amounts of positive reviews, I finally decided to get one.
However, I wanted to customize mine a little bit, and so I Decided to add on some accessories.
In this article I’ll be showing some of the coolest accessories that you can add to your Yamaha Tenere 700 to make it stronger and look cooler. I’m mostly going to be using products from SRC. I believe that they have some of the most durable and nice-looking motorcycle accessories.
We’re going to be installing a headlights protector, a better exhaust pipe, the rear cargo rack, bash plate, and upper crush bars.
So, that’s our mission, Let’s get started.
The first thing we are going to mount is our rear luggage rack and this is super easy. Remove the stock luggage mounts and screw in the ones from SRC, fit in your new luggage rack. Now you have a super sturdy rack with multiple mounting options.
This one is also quite simple. Remove the screws, insert the guard, screw in the new SRC screws, and that’s it. The rear mast cylinder guard has been installed.
And now to the upper crash bars. You probably going to need an installation guide for this. Watch the video above to see how to install the Upper Crash Bars on the Yamaha Tenere.
On to the Headlight guard. This one’s easy as 1,2,3. Just remove the stock screws. Mount the guard bracket with the screws provided. Then mount the headlight guard into the rubber mounting holes.
This headlight guard is laser cut from 2mm thick high-grade stainless steel. It’s really convenient as you don’t require tools to remove it when cleaning the headlight.
And then, the skid plate. This is a 4mm thick laser-cut, hard aluminum plate that offers great protection. It is coupled with a suspension link protection plate, and under side slider strips. Just remove the old bash plate, and replace it with the new one using the original screw holes.
Next, we’re going to switch the levers. These are supper easy to install, and they feel and look way better than the stock levers.
I also wanted to change the stock exhaust. This one’s also going to be a bit complicated to install. I recommend that you watch my video to see how best to do it.
Thant’s all for now. I’m going to be adding more accessories here as Install more on my bike. Let me know in the comment section which accessory is your favorite.
I will you in the next one 😉😊
