Altrider skidplate

Mounted a Altrider skidplate, good quality and I am happy with the protection it gives the bike.

Not exactly - (1) the canister does not release vapors into the environment, they are drawn into the intake to be burned during combustion, reducing their harm from raw hydrocarbons to exhaust (2) fuel vapor release into the environment is not harmless which is the reason for the canister on all cars and more recently on motorcycles - when you remove the canister you are then releasing the vapors into the environment, but raw hydrocarbon release is definitely not harmless

Thanks for the clarification - yes - anyone looking to remove the canister should know that raw hydrocarbons are released.

I figured that since the governments outside of the US were OK with not having this extra measure -- it would be OK for me and my conscience.

I know the following is from a rather old post (a year or so ago)... but I can stop looking at these pictures and wondering WTF!?!?!?





[/QUOTE]

Ive installed lots and lots of these Tusk hand guards on many different bikes, on my Tiger I had to go with the "Big Bar Adapter", somehow this guy (or gal) made it work with the standard fittings. Either the insides were machined to fit, or the bars were replaced with 7/8" bars or ??????

Anyone know who's bike this is?

thanks

Oxford Grips and Rigid Lights Wiring Questions

I have the oxford heaterz with the Beavercreek?? Adapter to the wiring harness location and wondering if I could also use the same connection for my Rigid Driving lights or should I get a seperate fuse block and not utilize it? I don't see heated gear in the future and only GPS and phone will be off the front plug. Maybe add helmet communication in the future also but thats about it. Looking for thoughts on this and wiring it all up. Thanks.

Why not utilize the fitted plug for the Triumph driving lamps? It's already fused and is, I believe, capable of supplying your lamps without an extra relay.

Not sure about the one you pictured, but I installed the Tusk handguards on my Tiger and only needed the big bar adapter for the right side. Could have used the regular bar clamp with a little more fiddling. On the left side the regular bar clamp worked fine, though I did use a Dremel to ream out the interior surface a bit.

I installed my Touratech fog lamps with the factory plug, but I ordered the factory wiring harness and relay so I could use the factory switch.

I was going to use that for the grips but seeing if the circuit could handle both the grips and the lights like the triumph units do.

Wrong! There are two separate plugs for the grips and the lamps under the tank.

I'm very interested in doing this -- I want the clean OEM switch look and tie into the bike's wiring. But I want the brighter LED lamps.

I found clear instructions on how to do the OEM kit...
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...&postcount=252

And I found the part list and determined that the following is needed to "wire up" without the OEM lamps / mounting hardware...

------------------------------------- Bike Bandit -------------
OEM Part Name ------------------- Part Number ------ Price

BRACKET, FOG LIGHT SWITCH ---- 2916970 ---------- $6.46
SWITCH, FOG LAMP --------------- 2970120 ---------- $22.36
SUB-HARNESS, FOG LIGHTS ------ 2917077 ---------- $19.67
RELAY ------------------------------ 1396821 ---------- $13.87

So, a few questions:

(1) Will LED lights be "well driven" off this harness / switch?
(2) Does the OEM switch offer just a simple on/off or does it have other features like linking with Highs?
(3) Do you lose out on other light features by using the OEM switch?
(4) Has anyone fit robust LED lamps directly into the OEM bracket/shroud?

OK, looking at the list, I grabbed the one from under the tank with the blank. Where is the other plug for the grips?

What LED lights are you going to use. If they have the wiring to be dimmed they can still be hooked up that way. This set up will power the lights. The Denali 2 lights have a power lead and a dimming lead that you can hook up to your headlamp. It looks like you have the list for the OEM parts.

Well, after going back to look over everything, I now see that they are 2 seperate plugs for them. I have the Eastern Beaver setup for the grips but looks like now I will need another setup for the lights.... Bummer...
