Wink Triumph Tiger 1050 Build Dirt

Hey guys new to this forum and want to thank everyone for all your help and knowledge.

Started with a 2007 Triumph 1050 Tiger, I pretty much striped the entire bike less motor and other stuff.

I decided to use a rear rim from a Tiger 800xc, looks like I have to make custom spacers to space the rotor and sprocket out. (this will happen next week)

The forks are being hard anodized black and having some valve work done for my weight.

I am using the front 800xc hub, spacers will also be needed for the rotors. Buchanan wheels is going to match a 19" rim for the front.

I powder coated all the forward controls Black

Road/ dirt foot pegs installed

I have a Remus Pipe for it so if anyone is interested Im going to sell it

Bars: I went with some risers and pro taper bars CR HIGH

Im at a stand still at the moment until I get the forks back. Body is all at paint being painted a matte copper/brown color

I will keep you guys updated as I make more progress of the build

Steve

Interesting. I found the steering on my 1050 to be way too quick for offroad use. You may want to look at increasing the rake angle to slow it down a bit. Also the seat is pretty wide at the front which makes it awkward for getting the feet down firmly when needed even with long legs. I am really interested in what you are doing here. Mine was a wonderful road bike. I hope you can make it work for you. I changed the bars to high ATV bars and added barkbusters which I likes but it was way too twitchy for even fire roads from my experience. Want to see it when you get it done.

Im going to try it with the 19" wheel first and see what happens once I can post pix ill let you know what I did. Im mainly building it to do the Mojave Trail to Laughlin, if it does not preform well than its back on the main Hwy and change some things up.

Desnorkel the airbox and remap to Speed triple map and it will soften up the bottom end and take away some of the herky jerky throttle which will help offroad. You probably already know that but thought I would throw it out there.

Good idea to go ahead and fit a 14 AH battery in there while you have it down unless you have plans for a new type battery. The 12 AH is just not enough for the bike as far as I can tell.
