you even have a deflector on top of it  :156:

the adjustment system from the XRT is replaced by the Puig system.

Installed stainless pins and cover on brakes as suggested on this forum. My brakes had seized up over a period of inactivity this past winter.
Hopefully will help with prevention.

New pair of Michelin R5 Trails fitted, going to lub the swinging arm bearings as part of a 12k mls service starting this week before putting the wheels back on.
Also looking at a brake fluid flush on the front and rear systems..

Baffle fitted, bike MOT'd, no advisories, baffle removed :123:
Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Out to "run in" the new R5s , what a difference from the Tourance nexts, smooth ride, better turn in, NO tramlining and a feeling of overall better security on the road.

Flushed out the front brake fluid though old fluid did look pretty good....

Today I dropped my Tiger at 0mph on the drive.... :232:
Fortunately I had the panniers fitted so the damage was lifted to scuffing on the plastic corner protector and very light scuffs to the right handguard....

Took the tank and airbox off to clean and lubricate the stepper motor linkage after having a few incidents of very low idle speed while hot.  It was filthy under there so I'm glad I've done it.  Running nicely this morning.

Fitted an arrow slip-on (from WoT) on the weekend and today remapped the ECU.
