Yeah. When did they start putting these on? Thought this was something they did for the American market. Certainly never had any sort of side reflectors on any previous bike, including my previous XC

Hi Mr G and welcome back.
Re those reflectors. They were on my new Gen2 that I collected March 1st last year.
Removed immediately and replaced with suitable matching allen head bolts.

Welcome back.

First job I did on mine was to remove those reflecters. Are they ugly or what?

The previous owner must have took them off before I bought my 2018.

I would have done the same.

Maybe the Tiger800 is, now, a 'world bike' -- as in: "One ring to rule them all..."?
Do all markets have evap cannisters?  :187:

I'm only aware of the California market requiring them .... (not saying there isn't more) :027:

If that is the toblerone shaped thing under the engine left side by side stand, then they are on Australian models too.

Trump is currently rescinding California's authority to establish motor vehicle emissions standards for USA.
So, the evap canister may be going the way of the Dodo..?  :187:

Agree and removed. Had a rummage round in the garage and found a couple of exact matching Allen screws to replace them.
