While talking chains, what's the general consensus for lubing in places like Morocco, dry and sandy, I can't imagine that a sticky wet lube would do a chain any favours.. a bit like grinding paste?

Dry wax type?

Yep, we do chains and they are of the D.I.D variety: we are the sole importer to the UK so those sellers on eBay would have bought them from us originally.

You don't have to split the chain when you get it, just rivet it once it is on the bike. I have a riveting tool... that sounds interesting! Anyway, I have a riveting tool that anyone can borrow if they need it.

James: I'll get you a price when I go in to work tomorrow.

EDIT: I've just checked the listing and the seller, DK Motorcycles, is one of our customers.
May the farce be with you

A Good practice
B It could expose any shortfall, the last thing you'll want is to have it go pear shaped out in the boonies.

We really must do a Trail Tech session at the Safari: tyres, chains, electrical etc.


My two bobs worth.
Good idea but can I suggest a bias towards James; and that James has a look through the Tenere forums, and finds out if there are any common faults save for the reg rec thing, that way we can try and tailor the fixes to his bike, although there are obvious common things to most bikes.
Oh and that he posts up a list of intended tools / equipment, there could be something important that's been overlooked.


With regards to the rectifier ive lubed and taped as a fix and Ive read of people using an old fazer 600 rectifier that can be spliced in if the other one gets cooked. Can get one for around £20 on ebay. Its the connection that suffers if water gets in and starts shorting out. The cush drive rubbers are weak but they can be packed out with off cuts of inner tube and thats about it. Im happy with the fuelling, the air box, im not bothered about de-cating the exhaust, Im not bothered about different air filters. Stock stuff seems fine for me.

Ive got general tools for undoing and tightening bits on the bike (screw driver bits, socket set, allen keys), cutters, adjustable spanner, relevant ring spanners, cable ties, insulating tape, duct tape, liquid metal, loctite, spare bulbs, spare brake and clutch lever, clutch cable, spark plug, spark plug tool, front and read inner tube, tyre levers, puncture repair kit, spare vulcanising glue and an electric air pump.

Going to get a couple of extra spare fuses although there are spare in the fuse box.

Hi James. I've just been looking at the prices that we have for the chain and sprockets. DK get a really good discount from us because they spend so much each month. Because of this, I cannot beat their prices. This happens from time-to-time, especially on low return goods.

The chains and sprockets that they have listed are correct. I can get the 520VX2GB x 110 for £84 and the 520ZVM-X x 110 for £116. These prices include the sprockets and VAT.

Hope this helps!
