I'm surprised how much of a difference the short, closer clutch lever makes in trail riding.

Brake is adjusted to the closest setting.
Clutch is one away from closest. I'm blown away on how little I have to adjust the cable. The stock lever was a PITA, constantly adjusting the cable depending on the amount of use, ok, abuse, you got me.
Beat on it a bit the other night, more tonight, but I'm expecting no issues.
The CIC GS challenge this weekend will tell all

Sexiest part about the hand controls. (still fresh and not damaged, trust me, that won't last )


I know already, the hand guards have been "fixed" so many times, once more and I'm sure they will brake

At least some part of your bike still looks good!

It is fantastic to have the adjustability. I wish I got the short ones which was my intent, but didn't work out right. Hard to see how big the things are on a screen. They are definitely shorter than mine.

I got and installed the similar ones a few months ago. Went with black lever and black adjustment dial.

Same settings as you for clutch and brakes.

Any comments or thoughts on why the ebay website says that the levers are compatible with a Tiger 800 but it says they are not compatible with a Tiger 800XC? Did you have to mod anything? or is that just the case of the seller not having his website updated to show that they fit the 800XC?

They work fine on the XC. I have had them for 6 month now. Much better than stock.

They were a perfect match. Even the clutch lever bushing fit correctly

Because they are smrt. After talking with them, I don't think their customer service know they go to a motorcycle.

If you look towards the bottom (don't use the drop down) it lists the Tiger 800/XC 2011-2013 as compatible.

I ended up with a set of those levers for my Thruxton, and can also attest to the value. So cheap, and great quality. I've heard the colored levers fade over time, but honestly, at $40, you just can't beat them.

very nice levers.

Can anyone recommend similarly affordable foot pegs upgrade? I'm slowly increasing my dirt riding and noticing that the feet are slipping everywhere on the stock rubber foottpegs, but i don't think it's reasonable to pay $150 for the 'brand name' options.

Hoping someone can suggest an option that they have personally tested.

Um, have you tried removing the rubber inserts?

That's what I do. Just take the rubber off. If that's not good enough, then weld some extensions onto the stock pegs.
