A little sneak peak!!!


Whilst I acknowledge that you'd be covering up the bling and hiding the pose factor but I'd be wrapping that in a shock sock straight away to help preserve it.

Not a big fan of shock socks so....I'd sooner put one of those Acerbis flaps on before I put a shock sock on. YMMV....

Don't think the oxford grips will work with the triumph switch - that's where the logic is

You could splice the switch harness into the controller. Or run the control wires to the hot side of the harness before the relay, and not get the switch.

handguards

I want handguards for my roadie to block the wind and rain. I was prepared to pay for the barkbuster storms, but most places are out of stock from what I've seen.

Is there any reason why I couldn't just order some of the MUCH cheaper moose aluminum handguards with the fat bar mounts and mount them on my tiger? What am I missing here? Why are the barkbuster / touratechs so freaking expensive?

I have the moose setup on my motard CRF 450, so maybe I'll try swapping them over to see...

My throttle stuck so bad when my heat was on it acted like a throttle lock. I placed a small stainless washer between grip and hand guard mount, problem solved.

I'm really not either. All Ohlins is lifetime warranty so that helps. I already have the Acerbis flap. I'm going to roll with that for a while unless I see a need for more protection.

Or buy one of these things

http://www.triumph-sbf.de/Dateien/pr...76ba9ee1ae732e

seems a neat solution and not as prone to breaking as the larger huggers.

I tried the Ascerbis, but the aluminum bar was hitting the brake reservoir, don't know about the Mooses (Meese?)

I'll just add a quick comment. I actually researched the whole hand guard issue at length before I bought my Barkbusters. I couldn't figure out why BB through TwistedThrottle were so much more than buying from BB.

I emailed BB and they spelled it out for me. Basically the Tiger has a different bar contour along with the placement of its controls so all the normal configurations don't match up. BB designed a special set to simply bolt up to the Tiger bars. That's what you're paying for.

I bit the bullet and bought them and it was worth every penny. I also got the bar end weights which are awesome too but did require me to purchase some additional bolts. I'll try to elaborate more later.

I have bark busters on my tiger and I completely, utterly HATE them. They don't fit unless you bend them a bit here and there, and then they are tight as buggery and require moving the banjo on the master brake cylinder -- no answer for the kink in the clutch cable. You can either run your levers too high or too low or else wedge the clutch cable over the mount.

Perhaps the fact that they suck on Tigers is why there is this "special set". DO NOT BUY THEM otherwise unless you're a short person perhaps things might line up for you then. I've been close to buying a second set of HDB guards and I'm still suffering because I don't want to throw away my investment. And I feel like I should use the Aussie product but it's hurting me let me tell you.
