Hi grizzlybear I have not used the bike much since fitting but it definitely seems to turn the engine over faster I will update the post as I use it more but other people on the forum are very impressed with them and at less than half the cost of a triumph starter motor are great value for money. :046:

Spent the day removing all the farkles I've added to the Tiger during 2.5 years of ownership. Now all back to its original spec, ready to be chopped in next Saturday. Some of the bits (Denali mount, Sat Nav mount, rear rack etc) will be up for sale when I'm more organised.

Fitted the Givi plate for my old Top Box and went with a mate who had a test ride on a Honda Africa Twin.

Fitted a Beowulf black powder coated exhaust with carbon end, looks great, weighs half the original and sounds amazing, cannot fault the workmanship and a great company to deal with.

Unifilter , switched fuse outlet for Gps and extra usb outlets. Scottoiler also fitted in . That air snorkel takes up some space. Lot easier on the 2015 model. The 2013 version was a pig to do.

Spent 4 1/2 hours yesterday cleaning thoroughly, degreased the chain, greased the rear suspension linkages and headstock bearings, ACF50'd the engine, frame and plastics.

Rode to work this morning as usual and now dirty again.....oh well, Tiger's are supposed to be dirty anyhow  :492:
