I finally received the stebel Magnum horn that I ordered: and duly fitted it on my Tiger  :028: its loud  :038:

Stealthtiger, where did you get the Stebel Magnum from?  I can't seem to find any UK distributors online (apart from Nippy Norman - who is sold out).  With Stebel being an Italian company I was going to leave it until May when I will be in Italy to see if I can pick one up then.
Sometimes I like to squat down, put my arms around my legs and lean forward but that's just how I roll.

Fitted my 20mm SW Motech bar risers. Made a nice change to the riding position.

Well worth 40.

I gave my XC an oil and filter change and replaced the front and rear brake pads with EBC HH sintered ones (although the originals still had a few thousand ks left in them) and gave her a good clean ready for the 20K service at BayRide next week.

It's Gr82briding!

I have been debating the powder coating of the kick stand, grab handles, and fog lights. I too would be very interesting in seeing any pics you are will to share Nick61tiger!

I re-arranged the circuits on my Eastern Beaver 3 way power distribution to accomdate my new purchased SW Motech spot lights & added a volt meter.  This now means that the spotlights are permenantly powered and the volt meter and GPS are on switched circuits.
 
Also added a TTO temp guage.  I used the version which has the sensor which replaces a spakplug washer & put it under one of the screws that holds the radiator side mouldings on. It may not be as accurate there, but it was easir to fit. Standard radiator temp appears to be about 85C.
It takes a 3 to Tango
