I kinda agree with you. It looks nice!! Not sure that important enough for me though. Theres other things l would like first though. The same site has a nifty oil filter guard for 30 bucks. Now that is useful!! Maybe down the road when i knock off a few more important pieces.

Is that for keeping your oil filter from getting scratched?

I'm not sure, but I don't worry too much about my oil filter staying in pristine condition!

Keeping it from taking a rock on the trail and getting a hole. Some folks have went for the ugly SW Mototech skid plat because it covers the oil filter, This will protect your filter with your OEM skid plate without the ugly.

You can get a triumph one cheaper. Not meant for 800 but works perfectly.

Thanks for that! I'll be doing this mod over the winter if there is snow on the ground.

Tank protection film

Has anyone ordered the Triumph protection film for the 800? If so, do you still have the instructions or printed template? I bought some 3m film and would like to see what shapes Triumph are using for their film kit so I can cheap out and cut mine to fit

Wait....it looks like Tiger have tubeless-compatible rims despite they use tubes? Or it just looks like it?
This can be a great news for me...
I mean - there is ridge as I can see typical for tubeless?
Here is tubeless rim - typical, I saw same on Caponord

Compare...

Thats a KTM rim not sure if its an aftermarket or OEM.
I posted a link to that image on another forum in response to people trying to do dodgy stuff to their rims so they can attempt to run tubeless on a rim not actually designed to be tubeless. This was an example of a better idea of how to safely run tubless on spoked rims. BMWs do somthing similar I believe. Also there is a conversion kit that uses your hub and a aftermarket rim http://alpinawheelsusa.com/products/...it-conversion/
I dont believe the XC has the correct rim profile with a lip to seat and hold the bead.

That's Caponord/BMW rim that Woody uses for conversion kits...I know those well - used one to convert my friend's Strom to spoked wheels.
You right, I was just specifically about tubeless "lip" profile.
It's just looks so much like it...I really do not want to do conversion if rim is not suitable at all for tubeless
