It's not to bad if you take your time, just be aware of the plastic supply fitting on the bottom of the tank. I have touratech upper engine guards and I had to watch out for the clutch cable. It was getting stuck between the bottom of the tank and support bar above the radiator. I used a short piece of 2x4 to prop tank up to remove electrical and gas connections.

I used silicone spray for the stepper motor after taking air box off. Will see how it lasts. I also noticed the top of the stepper boot wasn't fitted into the groove cut into the top part of the stepper shaft

I have the snorkel and adapter off while I wait for the UniFilter, (any day now, I ordered it ten days ago) think it's an issue if I ride this weekend without either?.

Speaking of spring, has anyone had issues with the side stand spring falling off when trail riding? I now carry two...

I dont think it would be an issue at all, to ride with the snorkel removed. Just make sure you dont have anything under the seat (like a rag) that could be sucked into the air box.

I also lubed the stepper motor area while i was in there. BTW compressed air and WD-40 worked really well a few thousand miles ago. Saves the trouble of removing the tank and air box.

Need some Rox Riser help... I have put off ordering a set and now I'm finally ready and there are so many different models, I'm not sure which to get!

Tiger 800XC uses the 1-1/8" by 1-1/8" and 2" and will fit without modifying stock cables? Does the vibration dampening model make a difference worth the extra money? Tried searching this thread and still searching...

My standard ROX risers work fine with no issues with cables and vibrations.

I tried the 2inch rox's for about a week. Vibration was not the problem, it was the cramps in my wrist. The stock bars are not swept back enough for me. The cure was the explorer bars with the 20mm riser. Drill 2 holes and good to go. I'll make you a deal on some almost new risers if you want them

Little farkleing of the farkle... bar end action on a set of Tusk guards to clean it up a little. You have to get out the Dremel to mount these too, need to open up the bar clamps.

Upgraded Tool kit

I've been talking to my ride buddy BackwoodsKLR and we have been sharing tool kit ideas.

I'm getting ready for the "San Juan 500" dual sport ride in Colorado and have added to the list of tools that I carry under the seat of the Tiger. It's probably more than I need, but I seem to never have enough.

Since I have the room, I carry a 17" and a 21" spare tube.

I only carry the sprocket and breaker bar when I need to change sprockets after long super slab runs.

I still need to add a multi-meter and JB weld...I still have room for that.






Forgot to remove the knife for the group photo....
so here is where I keep it.
