Tenere 700 – First Upgrades & Accessories

What to do with a new Yamaha Tenere 700 in the winter? Yeah Yeah. besides ride it. Customize it and make it mine, of course!

In the video below I am highlighting the first five things I did to the bike to upgrade and accessorize it.

Unsurprisingly, my list of customizations is long, that’s just part of the fun of owning a T7, but I had to start somewhere and as I show here, I started with:

Custom Text
  1. Phone Mount / Navigation Bracket: Hacked GUB 6 Plus handlebar mount + a custom 3D printed mounting plate and clamps.
  2. Shorty clutch and brake levers: MZS Tuning Adjustable Short Levers – Detailed Tenere 700 shorty clutch and brake lever review & install post here.
  3. Real handguards: Tusk D-Flex Pro Adventure handguard kit – YouTube install video here.
  4. Heated grips: Oxford Heaterz Premium Adventure grips – Detailed Tenere 700 heated grips review & install post here
  5. Anti-Bobble-Head Display/Headlight Braces: Camel ADV – YouTube install video here.

Of course, this is just the beginning of my Tenere 700 journey, with more off-road and ADV oriented accessories to be added in the next round, including a skid plate, crash bars, luggage rack, tail tidy, chain guide and more.
