Great link thanks! This is exactly what I was looking for. Products look well built and good to see they come reccomended :)

Unless I'm wrong...I should go for the M10 - 10mm bolt size option for the Tiger right? Sorry for being a copycat :)

I suppose you mean Kriega. I have seen their lugage and as you say, it's extremely versatile and certainly on my radar. Giant Loop are also very nice, but perhaps harder to get inside EU.

PS: Couldn't help but look at those Heated seat buttons and feel jealous for you  :001:...must feel so nice! Oh well...at least we have a short winter  :031:

I'm not sure to be honest, I ordered the standard handlebar clamp for it, but that new mounting system looks good.
Don't apologise, it's a great mount. If you're going for the charging kit for it too then I'd recommend the hardwire kit instead of the din hella as it comes with a transformer box which you have to hide near the battery anyway. It's better to mount it all in there and connect it straight to the battery then run the main cable through the frame and mount just above the engine. There's then an extra cable that plugs into the phone which you just take with you. I wrote a little review for it here https://9to5adv.wordpress.com/2018/12/10/ultimateaddons-phone-case-review/

I do mean Kriega, sorry, terrible spelling.


The heated seats are great. I was lucky to find a great deal on a used XCA so they're just an added bonus.

The risers I put on are Chinese versions of the Rox, like https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/28MM-CNC-HandleBar-Fat-Bar-Clamp-Riser-Motorcycle-Dirt-Trail-Street-Bike-ATV/172349197815

Note: there are ones which are 22mm/28mm, which have shims in so you can shim the 22mm stub to 28mm or the 28mm hole to 22mm. I've tried them and found them rubbish.

I've got an Adventure Spec foot on my sidestand: https://www.adventure-spec.com/default/adventure-spec-side-stand-big-foot-plate-triumph-tiger-800-and-800xc.html. Doesn't foul the centrestand.

I've also finished up as a bit of a Givi junkie. Mine came with Givi topbox and panniers, and I've added Givi AirFlow screen, Givi tank bags and ring, and Givi handlebar muffs for winter.

Also fitted - Steelmate TPMS, but I have this fitted to my Scrambler: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Wireless-Motorcycle-Tire-Pressure-Alarm-Monitor-System-TPMS-LCD-Display-Motor-M3/302966077225 which is simpler as it doesn't need wiring in. Waterproof voltmeter connected direct to the battery. Handlebar mounting clock that is big enough for me to read.
