Thumb Pivot Pegz?

How about reduced fatigue from your feet rocking back and forward on the foot pegs? Less chance of stretching tendons etc, a few hundred kilometres at a stretch in the dirt, and the fatigue difference is discernable. I'd not ride on the dirt without them.

Never notice them day to day, but take them to the dirt and they are a good thing. I guess that they are made for the dirt, and day to day, they are just there.

+1 but I also agree with fbj913 not wide enough to stand for long periods of time. Wish the peg was long enough to support across the full with of my boot.

I've tried searching..but it's hard to find what I'm asking, and this is a giant thread.

I'm considering buying a new tiger, and possible tacking on triumph accessories, since i can finance them into the package. I know for me, i want crashbars, skid, centerstand and heated grips.

Can anyone breakdown which of these accessories i should go aftermarket for, and which are good from Triumph directly? Thanks!

I'd say the skid plate and centerstand from triumph are plenty good and to know they work together. Have had zero issues with mine and like them both after using them many times.

Can't say for the heated grips as I installed oxfords because they were cheaper and I think just as nice.

The crash bars from triumph work but I think aftermarket is better. I have the triumph ones and been down lowspeed on concrete twice and they stopped anything major from getting damaged. My plastic tank side got scratched and my mirror and handlebars got scratched. I wish they extended a little higher to protect the tank better. Maybe someone with aftermarket will chime in.

I have all of those on my 800. Though there are some aftermarket that may be better (stronger crashbars/skidplate, hotter grips, etc...), I find all the OEM stuff perfectly adequate.

Awesome, thanks for the response. I'm actually in Tacoma as well!

Just out of curiosity, did you buy your bike from Triumph of Tacoma?

Skip the center stand/crash bars, the skid plate works but I'd go with the Altrider.

On my first XC I had the Triumph gear and was not pleased. On my current XC I have both Hepco Becker stand and crash bars

aux lights- flood not fog!!!

hey guys - I am wanting to put some auxiliary lights on my 800XC mostly to flood the ditches with light at night when Im driving home from work. deer are terrible in my area-I know this wont save me but It sure would help
I love the looks of the triumph ones but they are just fog lights. I would love to find something that size but more of a LED flood type. Anybody been through this already? if this has been covered somewhere just let me know where
otherwise Ill just try my luck with something I find off ebay. THANX
