Standard cap is the most bullet proof way but useless when you want to run a tank bag

Been searching the net for the last 20 mins and turned up nothing. Will try and contact the bloke that told be about it and let you know

Just had time to have a decent read of things you have found

The radiator fluid loss had me stuffed after I rode Pikes Peak (think it was 12000 feet) the other month, now I know why it was low
The thermo fan also cuts in more often after the radiator fins were blocked with mud on the Dalton Highway. Even after cleaning the Calcium Chloride blended mud away. Might have to pull the radiator when I get a chance and give it a thorough clean

Is that a US plate (Minnesota) on the Kaboom??? or is it just me getting used to seeing something similar

and thanks for sharing the tips, I'm sure they will save me some grief

Steering Damper setup

Hi there Guiltyparty, if you have a moment would you mind answering a quessie for me? Is that an RM2 Steering damper you're using? Would the Damper fit under the standard Tiger risers and if not, what do you think is the minimum height I could get away with? I'm quite a shorty 5'4 (1.65m) so the bars are just right for standing while I ride. I really don't need to add another 2 inches to the bar height in addition to the height added by the RM2 mount. This is an option I am looking at seeing as Rally Raid are taking a long time with their effort on the Scott damper and MSC products can already ship to South Africa.

What makes you think I'm not going to post pics of your bike in my RR? I have some amazing pics and video that you haven't seen yet. It was great riding with you. If only the Liger started out 30 kilos less. Something for Triumph to shoot for.
