Mine is in for the 1000K service today,also asked them to check the steering! :thumleft:

how much for the 1000 service?

mine next week


Hi Guys,

Having not bought my Tenere’ from them might have given Hatfield Yamaha the idea that they should charge me a “little” extra for my first service!
All they did was change the oil and oil filter, spayed some cheap ass chain lube on the chain that was all over the bike by the time I got home and hosed it down.
The cost – 600 odd bucks!!!!!!!!!  Must say I was not too impressed.  >:(

Sadly labour aint free when having the 1st service done at another dealer...

the labour componenet i will not be charged for

When I booked the bike in I was told that they wont charge me for labour. No labour charge was reflected on the invoice either, only oil,filter and sundries!!!!!! ???


Bloody hell , then you have bene ripped off.... :o

by my reckoning 200 for oil , 60 odd for oil filter ..nothing more needed...

what is the break down of the service charge?

What pissed me off the most was the fact that when I got home I had to wash the bike to get the kak chain lube of my Akros and the rest of the bike, it was flung all over the place - including me! :'(

Catchy, the oil should cost around R105/L, give or take R5.00, the filter as well. . I believe Yamlube is bottled by Motul and the s/synt Motul is R109./L The Motul Factory oil is R135.00.
The only oil that is cheaper is the Castrol Activa s/synt which is around R65.00. Would be nice to find out what the difference is.  :mwink: but for three litre's or so not that much of a difference.

How far can you go on 'reserve'?

Yup, same as the KTM 990, it tells you how far you have gone since the light came on, doesn't tell you how far to go until you start walking.
IMO if you can get +/- 100km on reserve, that's great.
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

1. My manual says the clock is on even if the ignition key is OFF. My clock does not remain on when the ignition is off. What do you guys say

I have just received an e-mail from the technical guys at Yamaha SA. They asked me to inform you guys that they have checked with the Japanese who have come back saying that the clock does NOT stay on after the ignition has been switched off/key removed. Apparently the manual has been misprinted. Hopefully this clears up that little confusing issue.

Hi Guys,

Need some help or info!

I have this years Tenere, bought all the extras.
The extras have been coming in drips and drags.

So this is where I need the help.

When I received the Tenere, the first item fitted was the Guvi crash bars.
Then the Yamaha sump guard.

Today the other items arrived. Main stand and water-pump protection bar.

The Yamaha water-pump protection bar does not fit with the Guvi bars. The bottom of the bars all wanna attach to the same point and place on the frame. 

Dont know why the guys did not think of this when they make it for one product like the 660Z. :deal:

Has any one of you guys done this or modded it?

Please let me know.

Thanks,
Yami

Hi Guys,


Got it sorted!

Droomers Yamaha is the place to go if you in the Cape!

As I have bought the bike and all the extras there, they made it fit for me, at no charge! It was a bit of modification and welding. It looks as if nothing was done to it.


Will be collecting my bike today with a "new" sound to it!  Fitting Acropolvic pipes. Gstry said that is the way to go, so be it.

The next few mods is the air filter upgrade and power commander. Any of you guys done this? What are the new specs after and how does the bike preform?

Thanks,
Yami
