Secret Stash Box Feature in the AltRider Crash Bars for the Triumph Tiger Explorer

What is it?
The secret stash box is 2 separate small compartments located on the top ends of each AltRider crash bars for the Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200 (link to tiger bar). Each stash box has an inside diameter of 27.6 mm and 119 mm deep (1.08” w x 4.7”d) with the cap in place. This special stash box is a practical application for everyday use or if you are traveling abroad on your motorcycle and need a place to conceal small personal items. All you have to do is screw off the end cap, stash your items, screw the cap back on for a waterproof security for your important items.

Tips to Use the Secret Stash Box
The following is an example of how to correctly utilize the 2 stash boxes located on the AltRider crash bars.
Step 1) Remove the Cap
To remove the cap, simply turn the cap counter clockwise (lefty-loosey). You will feel some resistance --this is normal. There is a weather seal inside the cap to keep water and dirt from getting inside the crash bars.













Step 2) Choose and Review Your Items
Remember that the opening is 27.6 mm in diameter so you have to be strategic with what you carry in each stash box. Here is a suggested list of items you can carry…
- Currency
- Spare Key (non-motorcycle)
- SD card / Mini SD card / Micro SD card (no cases)
- Copy of Insurance
- Copy of health insurance
- Copy of Drivers license or passport
- Copy of credit card
- Copy of registration








Step 3) Pack Your Items
We recommend you pack all of your belongings in a resealable plastic bag (Zip-Loc). The best way to pack is to lay all items flat and to stack them to one side. You will end up wrapping the bag around the bolt so keep this in mind when packing and do not try to pack too thick.





Step 4) Put the Cap Back On
After packing the items, the cap will need to be screwed back on. First place the bolt on top of your stash bag which should be lying flat. Next roll the cap over to one side and then roll the stash bag around the bolt.

Tip:
Fold a piece of bailing wire around your stash bag while it is laying flat. This can help you fish the bag back out in the future if the bolt does not catch the bag. Bailing wire is also just a great thing to have on hand in case you need to stitch up a loose or cracked fairing.

Tip:
Wrap bolt (except for the last 1” – 1.5”) in electrical tape of cover in shrink wrap. This will prevent the bolt from wearing through your thin plastic stash bag if you have hard objects packed inside.

Tip
: Apply some Vaseline to the outside of the ring seal to allow for easier reinstallation.
Now you can reinsert the bolt with the stash bag wrapped around it. The easiest way to get the cap back on is to push the cap all the way down and pull back out slightly and push stash bag down with finger. The top of the stash bag has to be down inside the tube about 14 mm to allow cap to bottom out. Now push cap down all the way and start to thread into nut inside the tube. Sometimes you will have to search for threads, this all depends on how evenly packed your stash bag is. Turn clockwise (righty-tighty) until the cap bottoms out against the tube.

















Removing Stash Bag
To remove your stash bag, simply unscrew the cap and use the bolt to catch on the bag and pull it up if you cannot access bag with your fingers alone.

During our Conserve the Ride event in Pennsylvania earlier this year, we found it difficult to disable the ABS and Traction Control off on the Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200. We made a short tutorial on how to turn off this function for better off-road handling.
