The Yamaha Tenere XT660Z has so many great points. The suspension is not one of them.
We started working on an upgrade kit soon after the bike hit Australia in 2008. It was discontinued in 2017 but remains a great bike. I like it so much I own one (Nick). Extensive testing with Greg Yager (TB from rideadv.com.au) over several years has seen us refine the ingredients, along with input from others such as Peter Payne (Yamaha Australia).
Riders from novice to A grade motocrossers have ridden our modified Tenere package with great results. Our aim is always maximum performance at minimum cost, so we offer these special prices for the following packages only:
Pricing based on New or as new bike.If you need consumables such as seals, bushes,bumper, shock seal, etc,extra costs for parts will apply .Freight options include Aust post and TNT , approx $25-35 road .
Latest fork and shock setting from testing by Stephen Gall and TB (Greg Yager), updated April 2016. Talk to them on the 2016 Tenere Tragics if you can catch them! If we have already modified your Tenere shock, we will update it to the latest spec for $180 inc oil. (Shock only, no remove and refit.)
Every option is sprung front and back to suit you and your application. Every shock option is dyno tested on our suspension dyno to ensure it meets our standards. Our V4s valves (Also known as Emulators, PD valves, travel control valves, whatever you want to call them) give us control of fork speed sensitive dampening, and make all sorts of tuning options available.
