As long as the water pumps aren't KTM then we're OK.

Anyone with the Pivot Pegz MK-III?

How do you like 'em?

Just got a set today, still getting used to them. Haven't yet had a chance to try them on the trails.

I am having the hardest time getting comfortable shifting with them. They are so wide it has really narrow the gap between the peg and the shift lever. Had to adjust the shift lever up, then down, still shifting like a clutz. Keep finding neutral up shifting from first, instead of second gear. I couldn't imagine trying to operate the shifter while standing on the pegs.

I hope it gets better. :

I am loving the K60's on my Tiger, 4200 miles on them so far and the rear is good for that much more.
The front appears to be able to last forever. I have a second set just waiting to go to Alaska...only 30 days to departure.

Wow. I like that blue. I would have gotten that I think over the orange had it been available.




For the US folks, where are you finding the best pricing on the K60's??

Has anybody found a good source for replacement air filters in the US? Anybody installed a K&N? I'm miles away from a dealer.

I am interested in this bikes ability when comes to a little tougher of reading such as the passes in Colorado like Engineer, Ophir, etc passes. Has anyone tried one of these passes with an XC?

I'm leaving in 29 days for AK also, planning to wear out the oem tires about halfway through, then switch to the k60's. Guess I'll see you up there

K&N have a pretty shitty reputation for air filters. Flows good amount of air but filtering is not great. I've read enough that NFW I'd use on any vehicle I own. Just one dipshits opinion.

I've never run one, but I've heard the same things. They were the only option that came up when I searched for an online retailer that carries Triumph filters. I really want to set up a dirt bike style pre-filter. I know Uni down in Australia made one for the Tiger, but I haven't checked to see if anyone else has made one. Guess I can always "engineer" one. But, I still need a new filter for the box. Am I best just to call my dealer that is 850 miles away and have a genuine Triumph filter shipped?
