Anything is a weight saving on the oem's 5.8 kg

Karma? How so? I actually learned something and maybe someone else did too. So, I mark this one down as a win win.

I rode with a guy that runs one and we did about 1000 miles in 2 days. I stayed behind him on day 2 for the stretch home and I eventually just had to get in front of him and push him back. He did not have the silencer in and I wanted to rip my ear drums out it was so loud.

Care to share your thoughts on how the Versys and Tiger compare for you?

I sold my Versys a few weeks ago but it was a great bike for the money. I really can't say anything bad about the Versys. The Tiger is just cooler looking, more refined and obviously has more power.

Thanks. Good to know. If I do go this route it will be with the insert in all of the time.

Who built your seat?

JimJim,
Who was the source of your seat? Looks comfy. Tell us about it.

JIMJIM, Ohio rider making waves! That seat does look great- elaborate! I think the stock seat is the most comfortable one I have ever ridden, but would like to know about yours too.

It worked on that so when I bought the Tiger955i (with its crap windscreen) I tried to fit the 100GS one on but it wouldn't fit because of the angle and curvature of the Tiger screen. So I bought another one for the 1150GS which has a similar curved screen. Now, because I've had these a while and taken them to bits a few times, I don't know which bits are from what spoiler.
So, to the Tiger800. I assembled which ever bits would allow it to fit the 800 screen.
In conclusion, I can't say which one you should buy so beware. You really need to go and see if you can try them on somehow.

Now to answer your questions :-
1, It worked at kicking the wind higher but I didn't really like the look so I bought the fitting kit for the Palmer screen that I eventually got for the 955i.

2, yes it sort of clips on. The mount has slots in it and you just push it on to the top of the screen, then run the strap down to hook under the bottom edge of the screen and tighten to clamp it all in place.

3, the little hole you can see in my screen was an experiment where I was trying to box in the central channel in the screen to direct wind up and send the overall wind higher without the spoiler. It did seem to work to an extent but looked shit and I couldn't think of a way to make it look good so I gave up and fitted the Palmer as described above.
Thanks. Gives me something to think about. Still kills me how expensive a bit of plastic is...

The stock seat and my ass never got along so I had Loren at Baldwin Motorbike Saddles build me a seat to my specifications. It wasn't cheap ($450) but I can now ride all day in total comfort. I went with memory foam and gel insert for rider seat and had him recover passenger pillion to match. Loren does great work, I had him build a seat for my Versys also.

Here's a better picture of the seat.

Touratech locking GPS mounted mounted to Triumph GPS accessory mount.

It looks like Touratech now has a re-engineered Zumo 660 mount (V2.0) with a better locking mechanism, for more money of course.

I have one. Its lighter for sure but I haven't weighed it. You can get the weight at their website and compare. It still looks like new after 10K miles. With the db killer in the noise is very tolerable. I can barely hear it over the gear whine at cruising speed ( I wear ear plugs all the time). With the db killer out its way too loud. I have not remapped other than having the latest anti stall map installed. It could be richened a bit as I have a bit of a lag when the motor is cold. Fine when warm though. I am leaning towards a Techclusion to play with mixture rather than use the Arrow map because it would be easier to switch it on and off or change it to suit conditions.
