Thank you, very informative.

Wish someone would do the same with the OEM lights, I'd like to see how they compare.

Triumph manufactures the switches both ways, under different part numbers. Nothing different in the switches other than appearance.

Please tell me more about this. What products are those, or did you make it yourself? It doesn't look the SW-Motech solution.

I want to mount my Zumo above the cluster like that, but the SW-Motech product is all I've found to do it and I don't feel like paying $55+shipping for it.

As a cautionary tale the front windshield mount is cast aluminum and is under quite a but of stress especially if you plan to go off road. Mine actually snapped off on a rutted fire road so be careful how much gear you mount to it....

I drilled two holes into the normal tiger bracket and used two bolts instead of the U bolt that came packaged with the ram mount.

You will need the Ram mounts, something similar to this: full kit, although mine is half a bar mount, and the long extension piece I scrounged together from other installs.

I used an Ikea base piece for a cupboard I modded to raise it and act like a dampner.

So far so good. While the dude above me has some concerns about that bracket, I think its okay, but the screen I fitted will definitely take a lot of strain off the OR bracket.

This RAM mount (RAM-A-238U) fits nicely on the windshield mount behind the gauges.

Anyone find a good waterproof iPhone 4s case to mount to the handbars??

Been looking on Ebay and Amazon but none look really legit.
