YAMAHA TENERE T700ADVENTURE SPEC CRASH BARS
From pictures of the legendary adventure-mad Chris Scott in the Tenere desert to images of the Dakar rally back in the mid-1980’s (when it was at it’s crazy best) the names Yamaha and Tenere come with some serious expectations loaded onto them.
In this case it seems that whilst the latest incarnation is no race bike in its standard trim it’s absolutely perfect for adventure riding… so, it wasn’t long after the final specs of the T700 were announced that we placed our order and as soon as the bike arrived Dave announced it was a big improvement on his original 1986 1Vj Tenere which first carried him across the Sahara ‘way-back-when’.
However, like all adventure bikes, whilst the manufacturers are getting better at most things there are the usual missing parts that quickly become necessary if you want to use the bike for its intended purpose…
Here at AS we’ve been making crashbars for over a decade and we’ve heard many stories about them successfully protecting the most vulnerable parts of your bike, we’ve even heard of them saving peoples limbs as well as ‘just’ the bike(!), so we know how important it is to get them right.
With the standard tank and radiator configuration on the T700 your plastics aren’t the only parts of your bike that you’ll need to worry about in the event of the inevitable drop. With its weight up high the Tenere falls relatively hard and without a doubt the one part of your bike you don’t want to damage when you’re ‘out in the sticks’ is your radiator.
Roll on the AS T700 Crashbars…made from 25mm 6000 series aluminium tubing with a fat 3mm sidewall these 3.04Kg bars give you the strength you need without the weight penalty of steel.
The bars are designed for your T700 to lean on as the bike naturally falls into its resting position on the ground after a spill, hopefully taking the impact/weight off your tank and/or acting as sacrificial grinding plates in the event of a long slide.
We all prefer to keep our bikes rubber side down, but for those times when reality bites it’s often best to be prepared.
