There have been a few changes to this kit. Make sure you know what you are purchasing BEFORE you order!
The first change is that we can now offer this kit without the muffler. If you order this kit , make sure to watch the update video below. There are critical dimensions and considerations that you need to have in mind when choosing a muffler!
The second change is that the link pipes are no longer being fabricated in-house. The pipe are extremely time consuming (over an hour per link pipe) and we simply could not keep up with the demand doing them by hand. They are now robotically welded which has lowered our cost.
There are so many things to love about the Yamaha 700 Tenere! Unfortunately, the exhaust is a bit of a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde situation.
It looks and sounds amazing but it has a dark side. It's located low and wide and is mounted on a very long exhaust hanger that's welded to the subframe. When the bike is dropped on the right side, the mount can be bent which allows the muffler to be pushed into the side of the swingarm. If it is not bent back before being ridden, the aluminum swingarm gets chewed up by the steel muffler (see photo below). Adding insult to injury, if you bend the hanger enough times, it can crack at the subframe.
Having experienced the bent hanger and torn up swing arm personally, we came up with a new exhaust system the places the muffler up much higher and closer to the bike's centerline... out of harm's way. To achieve this, we had to make a new link pipe and a new bracket to shorten the very long stock muffler hanger which greatly reduces leverage it sees making it much less likely to be bent in a drop.
*If you're ordering a kit without a muffler, consider purchasing a Black Widow SC30H or a Black Widow UN30H. We have found these to be a fit with our kit and a quality muffler.*
The kit includes:
TIG welded, 304 stainless, "Lobster-Back", link pipe with wire heel guards for both the rider and pillion.
Our anodized CNC machined billet 6061 aluminum clamp. This mounting bracket is simple to install and reduces the hanger length (and leverage by about 50%). *Patent Pending*
All fasteners, springs, exhaust clamp, graphite seal, and Camel ADV decals.
ADV Spec soft bag plates (require 10mm spacers and longer bolts)
2nd Gen Outback Motortek Symmetrical and Asymmetrical racks
*If a Tail Tidy is being used, we strongly recommend the OEM incandescent signal lights be replaced with smaller LED units. The signal light heat shield supplied in the exhaust kit will not fully cover the large OEM signal so they can be melted with exhaust heat. The OEM signals are OK if the OEM tail section (not a Tail Tidy) is retained.
*This kit's hanger bracket is officially Patent Pending*
