I bought my 2018 xrt in late march and paid for a beak but apparently the old part was different and the dealer only received the correct part about 2 months ago.  I agree, the bike looks much nicer with it:


Where can one get this beak so I can fit one to my 2018 XRT?

Just fitted one to mine but they are getting hard to get hold of now. Had to wait 7 weeks for mine, apparently Triumph painted it to order.
Also brought a new front mudguard from the matt black model XRT to try and make it look less like it has 2 front mudguards, I quite like that on the 900GT/Pro.
Also replaced the front fork reflectors, bolts and spacers with another pair of upper mud guard shoulder screws.

Very pleased with the result.

The beak "kit" was unavailable, but the great people of Webbs in Peterborough ordered all the individual parts to make it up for me.

I don't get it, why does a road bike need a high and low mudguard?

Some simply like the look .... horses for courses (or something like that). :008:

Personally I think it looks fine on the XC but looks wrong on the cast wheeled XR .... but that's MY personal taste. :002:

It doesn't.....I just prefer the way it looks. Would of had an XCA over the XRT if it wasn't for my 29" inseam and needing the lower seat height.

IDK -- but, apparently they do?
All six Tiger 900 models come equipped with both.
There are a terrible lot of lies going about the world, and the worst of it is that half of them are true.

The XCs also have 2 guards, just that the lower one is black and sits a back bit more and is lower so is less obvious. Whats the big deal? If someone wants to put one their bike so what. I always felt the XRs looked a bit like something was missing anyway, but also fine without one. In any case, not every XR only goes on road and not every XC sees much off road. Each to their own, eh.
