Leo Vince carbon or aluminum? I would expect the carbon not to get too hot but just thought I'd ask.

Yep, the carbon one. You don't want your hand to linger, but short touches are no problem. It is cooler than the Arrow on my former bike...

Question Auxiliary Lighting

I'd like to add auxiliary lighting to my Tiger 800, but not sure if I should go OEM fog lights or some other lights like PIAA. Does anybody have any suggestions on good lights that won't break the bank?

I'd like to hear what others have installed and how they worked out for you.

About the ECU re-map

I was at a dealership the other day & asked how many 800s they have sold. He guessed about 30. Then I asked about the ECU "issue" I've been reading about. Here's the story I got from this dealer (known to be reputable):
All the bikes coming to USA have a "Euro" map & it is the dealers responsibility to correct this before delivery, because of our crappy gas. Problem is many dealers are not doing this.

I'm just passing this on, I never said it was gospel. As the 800XC will be my next purchase, I have been watching this thread.

I have been thinking about this for a while also. I have been watching the LED lights that Sanjoh sells in the "Vendors" section and likely would purchase those if I were to add additional lights. For now I have purchased some Phillips Extreme Vision H-4 bulbs which I have yet to install. If the additional lighting from those is sufficient for me I will not be buying extra lights. I tend not to ride at night because of where I live. We have a huge deer population and I impacted a deer myself two years ago. This last year alone I have witnessed two deer impacts and one Elk impact. So I only ride at night when my planning has failed. Anyway, getting off topic here, but have a look at Sanjoh's lights, they are about $120 a piece for a lot of lumens.

Personally have seen the Sanjoh's Led lights...great light/ lumen output & the quality is good.
I will probably buy a set soon....

I have the Fuel Midi Can(no insert baffle) on mine & the Drone it emits at cruising speed pisses everyone off that's behind me. How the sound at cruise speed? I love the sound ...but the Drone!

My main concern is with the release pull cord that routes through the body of the mount. If (when) this cord fails there is no way to release the bag. I hate it when manufacturers make designs more complex with little to no benefit in function.

Has anybody with this topring had any issues? Share my concerns?
Yeah, I noticed that as well. However, I can see and reach the dogs with a screwdriver to push them back to release the bag without scratching the tank. Move one and they all move. I'm not worried about it and will occasionally check the integrity of the string.

USB Port.

I installed a Tapp-Lite USB power power port on my bike today. Very easy install, though it probably took me an hour and a half as I usually just plod along.

Mounted one on my roadie: removed the cannister and plugged the hoses. The fit is perfect and the unit is well-made, very easy to install, works great.

An inmate here has some good LED spots and floods

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...=607184&page=4

I put a pair of the spots on my hepco tank protector bar and used the Triumph fog light switch and sub loom.
worked very well.

Alas no good pics, because of Garage fire but this sort of gives an idea of what they look like and where they sit (sat)

Any special reason, why you used the Arrow map?

In the british Tiger800 board somebody contacted LeoVince and they told him that the standard map should be used with their cans as only for the 'original' Arrow can the special map is needed, all other aftermarket cans should work with the normal map!

My roadie also works perfectly with the standard map - was by my dealer two weeks ago for service, and they put on the Arrow map on my bike (don't know why) and immediately the tiger consumed approx. 0.5l/100km more fuel, also wasn't able to feel better performance and i think, it didn't rev out as 'freely' as it was before! So back to standard map thanks to TuneECU!

The only reason, which could be possible for me - with the Arrow map the mixture should be more rich on fuel, which maybe could be necessary in the States, as you don't have 91 or 95 octane fuel like we here in europe as far as i know!?

Greetings from Vienna, Austria!

There are no USA maps & Euro maps.

Here are the current 800 tunes:

20636Map.hex OEM md5checksum Use with standard silencer. Fuel up to E25. Minimum 91 RON (87 RON/MON)fuel. Replaces the 20630
20637Map.hex OEM md5checksum Use with Arrow slip-on silencer. Fuel up to E25. Minimum 91 RON (87 RON/MON)fuel. Replaces the 20631
20632Map.hex OEM md5checksum ABS Use with Arrow slip-on silencer. Fuel up to E25. Minimum 91 RON (87 RON/MON)fuel. Replaces the 20626
20634Map.hex OEM md5checksum ABS Use with standard silencer. Fuel up to E25. Minimum 91 RON (87 RON/MON)fuel. Replaces the 20628

So basically a "standard" tune & an "Arrow" tune, abs & non abs

Here are the 800xc current tunes
20633Map.hex OEM md5checksum ABS Use with Arrow slip-on silencer. Fuel up to E25. Minimum 91 RON (87 RON/MON). Replaces the 20627
20635Map.hex OEM md5checksum ABS Use with standard silencer. Fuel up to E25. Minimum 91 RON (87 RON/MON). Replaces the 20629
20636Map.hex OEM md5checksum Use with standard silencer. Fuel up to E25. Minimum 91 RON (87 RON/MON)fuel. Replaces the 20630
20637Map.hex OEM md5checksum Use with Arrow slip-on silencer. Fuel up to E25. Minimum 91 RON (87 RON/MON)fuel. Replaces the 20631

Well those did get very hot especially when the headers are the wrong way round.

Not sure what break the bank is for you but check out Rigid Industries. Best lights in my opinion!
