That is 100% correct, I have the same setup on mine. And it's WONDERFUL. Seriously Triumph should ship Rox Risers with the bike. Totally different feel to the ergonomics.

Ha. Ha.

No, I'm a seasoned mountain bike racer that is used to being practically horizontal so I can climb like a billy goat. Then, I hopped on this motorized gadget and feel like I'm on a horse and have to have good posture and be all proper. I don't think of upright as aggressive... IDK. Not much apparently. Had it all wrong.

Thanks noodle for the confidence.

Installed my SW-MOTECH crash bars on my XC over the weekend, and had a couple comments and questions for peeps that have installed this kit.

Were the bolts supplied with the crash bars in acceptable condition? 2 of the bolts that shipped with my kit needed to be re-threaded. They were VERY rough. I have a friend with a tap and die kit who knows what he's doing, and I was able to get it installed successfully with no issues, but had I not had access to him, I'm afraid I would have ruined the threads in the engine block.

Just a heads-up... Inspect your hardware thoroughly if you're threading a bolt into your engine block!

SW Motech

Anyone have the SW Motech crash guards on their 800 XC? Any side effects like vibrations or buzzing at highway speeds?

As mentioned in the thread just above... I just installed mine. Very solid and the bike feels no different.

I think you underestimate how sturdy they are...

Here's a link to a Tiger 800 crashbar thread with some photos of "tested" crashbars.

Seems like the Tiger doesn't have the best of cable routing IMO. Seems like they rub on just about everything: plastics, forks, frame. Anyone else notice?
Nope, just standard 2" pivoting Rox Risers. As I mentioned in a previous post, they are a "must-have" farkle for the 800 XC. IMHO. I could ride without them, but having the extra 2" lift seems to be coming in really handy when off-road. My motorcycle riding experience is about 90% off-road and I'm so used to standing up while riding. The risers certainly put me in a more a comfortable position do to so. No, didn't need to lengthen any cables. The risers bolt right on to the 800 XC like they were made for it. No issues with cable length or rub post-install.

I'm about 5'9" with a shorter than average reach, so the risers really hit the mark.

I agree, it does look a little odd from some angles, but you get over it in about an hour after you ride.

Thanks Dude. yeah, I'll let you know how they hold up. I'm doing an OC to San Diego run on Friday, so I plan to hit both asphalt and dirt pretty well.

Highway Pegs

Some folks have asked about my version of Highway pegs for the Tiger
so here we are.

Having used highway pegs on my 990 I found it's a bit like heated grips
once you've used them you wonder how you ever did without.

So I made my own up again this time for the tiger.
These are a must for me as previous knee injuries cause problems
on long transport days.

So, this is MK1.





A very tight fit was achieved with an adjustable Reamer.




A captive nut is welded in the tube.


Very easy to remove
