Is the front of the Corbin seat at the same location as the stock seat? That's why I mentioned a fixed point on the tank. It appears that the front of the Corbin goes higher up the tank than the stock seat, but I may be wrong.

That's what I get for reading too quick. I think the seats are close to the same spot but just in case I did it again. From the rear edge of gas cap where paint starts, to the lower edge of back rest area is about 25.5 inches.

LED Lights for our Tigers?

I scrubbed the tiger threads & didn't see anything other than Pilot3's tail light mod... Anyone else play around with LED options for the signal lights? My wife who followed me the other day said my OEM's were weak in direct sunlight and advocated an immediate upgrade for the sake of safety!! So, any thoughts? Google says there are a couple of options:

Touratech rings the bell with their $$$$ version (175/pr).


Then there is this $$ version from Weizer (59/pr).


Since it is a matter of "safety" , & fully condoned spending from Mrs. W, I'm looking for something to compliment Pilot3's tail-light add-on.

I've yet to find an LED signal solution that's as bright as an OEM incandescent bulb. I do have LED signals similar to your first option on my Husky, but it's done for the sake of smaller size, rather than visibility.

If you get some signals that are quite bright, I'd like to know about them!

Rizomas are the ticket if you're looking for a bright LED solution. Like all things MC related, the good stuff ain't cheap. http://www.pjsparts.com/catalog/inde...d7e13277d27c88

Thanks for the lead Tim... They're 50/each, but still cheaper than the Touratech's. I talked to a sales [] and he's says the fitment is a piece of cake... Like he'd say anything contrary. I'm headed to the shop to ask the guys about fitment/wattage/amperage concerns.

I don't think there should be any fitment issues, and I wouldn't think there'd be any wattage/amperage issues either. The one thing that would be an issue, that's the same with all LEDs, is that you'll get the fast blink rate since they have a much lower resistance. The solution is either to solder in some resistors on the circuit, or get a new flasher relay. I know the relays are easily found for Japanese bikes for ~$20 on ebay. I don't know if it'd be any different for the Triumphs.

Or of course, there's option 3 of just letting it blink fast.

Anyone tried the OEM LED turn signal option? They are $65.93 on BB. (I guess that is for one complete assembly.)

I just measured my stock seat and its 24.5 inches between the same two points. Since it then slants back from the lowest point, it would probably be more comfortable.

Thanks for doing that for me.

Got my 15T sprocket installed. Did a short test run and love it!!!!

5300 RPM = 70MPH

6000 RPM = 78MPH

Approximate indicated on dash readings....

Lofted front wheel. Accelerated from 60 - 90 to pass a slow car in an instant!!!!

Can't wait for more extensive testing!!!!! .

Signals & Sprockets

Ordered Rizoma LED signals. I'll post some before/after pic's when they get here.

KLR - I've seen/read several posts about the sprocket mod. Did you do it for more low end torque? I noticed that its hard to crawl along in 1st without lots of clutch... Lofted front wheel?

(sorry for the nOOb questions!)

I was running some single track and had to clutch a lot. In a parking lot, idle speed is 10-12MPH with stock gearing. A bit too fast for picking your way in rough terrain.
