It's not a KTM stator, where a "bulb" will fry it.

;D
Bulb indicators are placed on bikes - nowadays, and this is just MY opinion, for example of BMW bikes, so that the #@@&*! manufacturers have something to 'UPDATE' 2 - 3 years later, when they do a 'face-lift' and THEN put on LED's:
- I am all for updates/face-lifts, but if certain bikes have had LED's for the past SEVEN years already, then the manuf. must p!ss of with his bulbs, and put on an LED indicator - brighter, hardier/more durable, etc. This despite that we SELL LED indicators, and associated resistors, etc, for a living.

Agree
Had LED indicators on my 2008 GS, optional extra at that time.
Minimum requirement on any current bike I ride I paid more than a R100k for.

So the T7 need spring upgrade and LED indicators. Should still be okay if it comes in cheap as oversees

You forget that it's a Yamaha, my XT600E has done 100 000kms over very difficult terrain often, with bulb indicators, still to blow one.

Does the 790 Adventure also weave at high Speed?

Yes, they say at high and low speed, feels like a jet-ski all the way.

They?
Really?
Maybe "they" can't ride, are gesuip or have a moerofababbie, but a 790 does not weave at low speeds Herkules!
Mine does it a liiiiiitle at high (over ~185km/h) speeds -  but NOTE that is on Offroad Comfort suspension settings (ie soft reactive suspension), with -3 clicks on each fork ie quite a bit softer still, and don't forget the tyres are soft then also .... and then the weave is a slight one only, very much manageable to the bike's top which I got at 206 km/h.
Shit bike then?
Dunno what the bike does on Sport settings with properly inflated tyres, perhaps someone should try this..... but I won't, as this thing is a cracker as is!

The secret to Yamaha reliability. If you can't own one you can't complain about its reliability.  :pot:
"These are not machines for the meek. Ride it like you stole it, cane it within an inch of its life. It will require a bunch of maintenance and generally tend to be, shall we say, harsh? It was bred for racing, after all. It will devour rear tires and its lust for fuel will astound you. It will suffer indifference and carelessness very poorly. Like heroin and Asian girls, it's not for everybody, but when you absolutely, positively, GOTS to beat every m*****f****** in the race, accept no substitu
