In 4 days I had my Tiger.

That has paid off bigtime because the 650 has been in the basement torn apart all winter for the last 3 (including this one)
The irony is that the 650 is a better winter bike. Maybe next year the Tiger get the basement treatment.
Amen Brother. I am still having trouble getting the Tiger started in cold weather even with the brand new 440 zillion CCA Lithium battery - In reality these batteries have has zero COLD cranking amps.

Fortunately have access to some cool stuff from work - an 8" x 12" piece of fabric wired for heat is now wrapped around the battery. Well before I want to get her going, I go out to the garage, switch on the heat, and wait..... After 20 minutes or so she will crank enough the get the battery warm enough to start her up. If I can't wait I just get on the KLR. She starts right up no matter the weather.

Hardly seems worth it. The Lithium batteries are so much more expensive.
