Just finished a 5800km ride on mine, did it easy (the pilot didn't). 1 rear tyre, 1 air filter (4 filter skins - worth every cent). Changed oil at Alice Springs (1/2 way)
!5.5 ltr front safari and 10 ltr rear Safari gives a range of 450k's plus - as yours is FI would be even better.
Short ADv ride - Long ADV ride - these things handle it all. I'm sold on these bikes. Just clicked over 20000k's. Can't understand why Yamaha don't build an ADV version
Got some great pics and video of the Adventure - will post up some stuff when finally been thru
Good to hear - I love the bike - I've had it out a few ADV rides now, and it's just great fun everywhere
5,800km is a big result - look forward to seeing the ride report
Filter skins are a good idea - where did you find those?
It will be interesting to see what the 2016 model is like - it may be tending back toward the enduro side of things, in line with the EXCs etc - lighter and higher-maintenance - the existing bike is spot on really
But sadly mine doesn't look quite so beautiful now, after a pretty spectacular unplanned dismount last weekend - it's Ok I think, but a bit banged up ...
