This is what my filter looked like at 3000km - the black is carbon graphite off the fuel pump brushes. Removed and relocated a Golan aircraft quality serviceable filter externally. Fitted Guglatech filler fuel filter.

Does'nt work for me either. A rim should be silver or black.

First English review: https://www.motorcycle.com/manufacturer/yamaha/2021-yamaha-tenere-700-review-first-ride.html

Sounds distinctly underwhelming to me (for an all-catered official launch report). I like the lack of electronics, the girth limiting movement on the bike not so much. That engine is just peachy in terms of characteristics (loved it in Tracer), but its dimensions (deep sump with high COG. wide at the bottom) seem to be quite limiting in this application. And the spindly 43mm forks with about 20 cm of travel do not inspire confidence - KYB or not.

790 after year or two when all the beta testing is done sounds like much more appealing choice. It would be great to be able to get rid of the tablet and replace it with little 2019 690/500 enduro display, ideally disable ABS permanently, and it may need aftermarket rims to be able to use tubes in it for long distances, but quality suspension and great ergos will probably compensate for it.

Now let's hear what sidetrack has to say to address my skepticism. :peepwall: :pot:
