Lockdown blues
« on: January 22, 2021, 12:19:12 PM »
OK, so I'm bored and looking for more things to do to my Tiger 900 Rally Pro.

So far, 5000 miles in I have bolted a decent amount of additional crap and weight to it already whilst bored in lockdown :

  • Evotech Satnav holder
  • Garmin XT
  • Quadlock for Iphone
  • Barkbusters
  • PDM 60 Power Distribution module
  • New chunky tyres (AX41)'s
  • Spools on swingarm for paddock stand
  • Installed TigerTool software and connected successfully to bike
  • Covered it in ACF50
  • Lid nets installed in all three Triumph luggage boxes

I'm out of ideas now :027: .  I'd love to go for a ride, but it just doesn't feel appropriate at the moment and went out this morning for exercise and food in the car.

Any thoughts of useful updates/upgrades ?

RBW

NB - Whilst bored Im also incredibly thankful I have not been directly impacted by Covid, In-laws have just had jabs which Im also very thankful for.  I'm also thankful that I still have an income for the time being.

Givi make some for their 37Litre boxes (https://www.givi.co.uk/givi-products/side-hardbags/monokey/ala36apack2-trekker-alaska/e144)

and their 42L boxes (https://www.givi.co.uk/givi-products/cases/monokey/trekker-outback-42/e168) which would fit the Triumph Expedition Aluminum luggage

Life is too short to drink bad wine or to ride bad bikes.

Done, thanks.  The 899 was a fabulous bike, and still looked great after 35K miles. I'm hoping I love the Tiger ownership as much.

Hugger? Or no use with the chunky tyres?

Tourateck sump guard and centre stand extension bit?

Upper crash bars?

Thanks for the idea's Jarse  :031:

I was about to order a pyramid hugger but a couple of people have said it's not great as leaves a gap to the shock between the swingarm and shield - I will fit something but I may wait for a suitable shock shield (doesnt look like there are any out yet for the T900).  A shock shield should then fit regardless of what I do with the tyres.

The Rally Pro comes with what feels like a reasonably robust sump guard (famous last words), so I'm not rushing to replace this.

I did spec the upper crash bars when I ordered it, so it came with those fitted.

I'm not sure what the centre stand extension bit is  :027: , although this did make me think of a sidestand foot enlarger.  45 from Touratech  :087: .

Since yesterday I've managed to connect the laptop via the OBD2 port using TigerTool as per this thread https://www.tiger800.co.uk/index.php/topic,28690.0.html .  I've also managed to see the Triumph Service manual as per this thread https://www.tiger800.co.uk/index.php/topic,24598.0.html .

That should keep me busy for a bit, and thanks to this forum for the information to do the above.

Keep them coming :) . I'd like some more aggressive pegs, and think Triumph have used the ones that fit the 800 on the 900 at their adventure centre in Wales but on Triumphs Website they don't show them as a fitment.  If anyone has any recommendations let me know.

RBW.

Sounds like we have about the same spec bike!

I have this and its a good addition. I think the Touratech sump guard looks proper but not convinced at scrapping the original.
