Tiger 800XC Install

Just finished installing handguards, top plate and mirrors on my Tiger...all went smoothly...

The only surprise was that the handlebars on the Tiger have threaded inserts that are used to mount the stock handguards and they use a slightly smaller bolt. Rather than futz around with trying to remove the inserts, I just used the original bolts which were also of a countersunk design.

My order arrived sooner than expected and I'm very happy with the results...a first class operation! I'll spread the word!

Cheers!
