Hi Big Stu, you can see both in this pic, the Quadlock is fairly straightforward (the phone isnt mounted but you can see the mount on the bar).  The Evotech satnav holder seems good quality, bit of a faff to install but just took my time.  For further details on the satnav mount, you can download the installation instructions from Evotech here https://evotech-performance.com/collections/all/products/ep-garmin-compatible-sat-nav-mount-triumph-tiger-900-rally-pro-2020-onwards.
 


I was interested in the scrolling indicators, but havent made a decision yet, so let us know what you think about them !

Screen still moves as standard, it just has a new Evotech bar that is supplied with the mount.

You think that's bad, I don't get my 900 GT Pro until March and it's -20c outside right now.  And it's damned near impossible to find 3rd party accessories for the 900 in Canada for some reason.

Thanks Grizzlybear, I forgot about that but had the Triumph protectors installed when I picked the bike up.

As Jarse says Big Stu, the screen still moves but the Satnav stay's still.  I'm interested in the scrolling indicators (I assume the are the Triumph ones) so will ping you my email (if you are happy for me to I'll put the video in the thread as well).  particularly interested that you say they are super bright  :028:

Morning all  :190:

I really like Big Stu's scrolling indicators as below, so that might go on the list.  Maybe its the ambient light but they also look super bright - I cant remember if the stock lights are LED ?  Big Stu has also done some powder coating of silver bits (e.g. pillion peg hangers) to match the black frame of his White coloured T900 and it looks fantastic  :062:


Another thing I was considering is the off-road pegs, which are actually designed for the previous Tiger 800 version.   When I went to the Triumph Adventure centre in wales last year they had these pegs fitted to the 900 version (as well as them using them on the previous years 800's at the centre).  Can anyone see any potential issues with this, the fitment certainly looks the same on the 900 pegs. ? https://www.triumphworld.co.uk/shop/detail/cnc-machined-footrests-grey/a9770124



Keep the ideas coming  :031: .

I've received the new footpegs, but encountered a minor issue with fitting the new footpegs.  They fit fine, but the original spring doesn't tension the footrest in the same way it does with the OEM footrest because there is more space around the pin that locks them in place.

I'm going to take a punt and assume the 800 footpeg springs are a slightly different design and will fit snugly, so have ordered two online.  Once I get them I'll have another go !

I ordered some peg return springs for the Tiger 800 and as expected they are a bit different to the Tiger900 springs.  These allow the new pegs to behave as normal and spring back



Mirrors next, has anyone tried these Doubletake mirrors from the US ?  I managed to break the mirror mount point on the handlebars when I crashed offroad on a Tiger 900.
