I think it the same pannier used in FJR1300. If Yes, each side can hold one FF helmet with some space for a set of rain clothes.

Saw a TDM900 with the side panniers at HL showroom also. Look nice on the bike.

some ask y mileage diff (450km-^500km) so much.

 

last time when up north the rev. lights up ard 360km. was ridding ~160-^200km/h.

last couple of weeks due to wok i was travelling between changi & LCK (90% of the time on PIE) the rev lights up only after 420km (~80-120km/h) each time i pump in ard 17l of syn5000. that woks out to ~24 - ^25 km for each liter of petrol.

hi comics,

great to find someone riding the same bike :thumb: i would say your bike fuel consumption is much better than mine. personally i think the original side panniers are very nice but the pricing is way too ridiculous... im currently using a full hepco system- a 45L top box and 40L side panniers... for the price of the orginal panniers :thumb: anyway which year and what color is your TDM model? maybe can give you a friendly wave if i see u on the road :)

pump up today with 19.1L (syn 5000) n metre at 483.4km

that works out to 483.4/19.1 = 25.31km/L

 

great "fig" comparing to my vulcan800 ~ 250km for 15L =16.7km/L

:lovestruck:

Lovely. I thinking wanna upgrade, consider between FZ600 or TDM900.

Brother which one do u think better?

1. fuel consumption.

2. maintenance.

3. spare part cost.

4. reliability.

 

I'll be use it daily to work. every week end will go to JB(topup ah!).

Brother, this bike ok not if custom jam, would the bike over heat?

I saw some Honda Steed over heatted, coolant spill out from radiator.

And some bike clucth can jam or wear off very fast.

to those aspiring TDM owners....

 

we can only say so much based on our PERSONAL experience;

 

in the end, it's you who will be riding it!

 

my advise is to hop on the bike...if possible ride and THEN DECIDE whether you wan to buy the TDM...

 

it's designed to suit most bikers temperament; good slow speed control, not too high seats, parellel twin engine(that behaves like a vtwin(has the torque) but vibrates like a inline4(less vibration compared to a vtwin)-so i my opinion, the engineers were trying to get the best of both worlds....

 

if you were to ask me what i hate/wish can be improved about the bike(tdm850)

-out dated exhaust pipes! and it's damn heavy

-ugly looking exhaust pipes! like MILO KONGS

-engine sounds rough(like a ducati) but it's personal preference anyway

-not enough wind protection for the serious tourer...

 

Joe

You have travelled to places others have not ventured....You read books that others have never heard of....You see humour in unusual places. And you've always gone your own way. Why, then, should you ride a bike that's like all the rest?

 

when you travel, you experience, in a very practical way, the ART of reBIRTH

And some bike clucth can jam or wear off very fast.

:weep:

1. ^24km/L (syn5000)

2. by far (1yr 9 mths 27000+ km) only normal svc n changed the rear tire.

3. Yamaha parts lah, how much can it cost?

4. ever heard a TDM owner complaint?

 

was jam (night) at the custom once (over 1hr) the bike did turn red (temp) n the fan turned on. feeling the heat cooking my 2 ding dong i off the bike n let it rest for ~20min b4 starting it again.

 

as for coolant spill out, bike on fire, engine blowing into pieces ect. personally never encounter b4.

 

Ride pos - FZ more like sports n TDM more upright n comfort

Engine - FZ (600) in-line 4 with high hp got more top n smooth n TDM paralle twin more tq n rough(sound)

 

both FZ600 n TDM900 is diff, 1 is a road bike n the other is a tourer, so not fair to compare lah. like everyone else said "every bike is design to suit diff ppl, so u will have to ride both to decide which 1 u prefer."

was ridding between changi n LCK (~100km/day) due to work, the more i ride on the expressway(80km/h-120km/h on TPE/SLE/BKE/KJE) the fuel consumption seems better!

 

today just top up after work n to my surprise manage to only pump in 18.9L (syn500) while the metre shows 489km! that works out to ~25.8km/L. this the best no. i ever got.
