Evening all , just picked up a 2015 xr800 with 4200miles ,my first triumph, looking to displace my r1200gs from the garage , a lot more nimble , engine lovely , standard screen is crap thou  , but so was the BMs , I fitted a Givi Aeroflow to the GS, does the aero flow work good on the tigger?

I may be in a group of 1 but I'm okay with the standard screen. I have the seat on high and I'm 185cm, no helmet buffet...but I don't do a lot of motorway riding. I don't think I've ever found a bike forum where the community feels the manufacturer has "got it right"

Hi guys , just to thank the forum members , great wealth of knowledge , first the one for finding the wires pre plugged ready to go  for the auxiliary socket under the seat , I would have been splicing , second the difference between givi trekker & triumph branded top box plates and keys saga without this could have been100 out of pocket.
