Of course the brake side wasn't really a problem but I needed symmetry.



I need to find some better wind protection than the Barkbuster covers provide. Sometimes form doesn't provide function even with the little lip extensions in place.
Nice! I am going to have to get these as my set was not too special and I had to tweak the banjo bolt and release all of the adjustment in my clutch cable since it is kinked so bad. They do make a special set for the XC, but I don't know how you get them. I called Twisted Throttle before ordering them trying to make sure I would get the correct special set but they had no idea what I was trying to ask and so I just ordered them with my fingers crossed. Now I have to throw some money around to correct the problem. Thanks for finding the solution.

I think I found it but it is only available for 7/8" bars... Is this what was used?

If you choose black color, it gives you the option for the 1 1/8 CR high bend for $43. Not sure if that would fit the bend of the 800 roadie bars though. I take it the xc and roadie have different bends?

Usually I save everything in a file that I have ordered for a bike but I can't find the model Moose I ordered.
This was for a 800 roadie. I don't know if the XC bars are different from the Roadie. I don't believe so.

I recall in my research that the Triumph handle bars are made my Nekken (French?). Probably someone out there could confirm that.

The clamp from Mooseracing.com (in silver) is:

Likes like Cycra has their solution as well. And check out the dropdown box, they have a selection for Neken bars: http://store.cycraracing.com/uclhamos.html MSRP looks to be $45



Edit: And here they are $35 shipped if you have amazon prime. http://www.amazon.com/Cycra-Clamp-Se.../dp/B000I87E0S *disclaimer: no idea if these will work with the tiger :P

I used these on my XC "Nekken" bend ...worked perfectly. They lined up 100%.

Question Hiedenau k60s or Mitas E07s

Anybody tried both. Thinking about new tires for spring. The Mitas E07 s are cheaper and have read pretty good reviews on them. K60 s sound awesome, lots of you guys are running them, but Mitas tires are $240.00 for the pair and free shipping. Makes them attractive, but i want to make sure i'm getting good tires too.

Since you get free shipping from MX1 Canada, I would suggest going with the Mitas. Drif10 likes them a lot on his GS. The exorbitant cost to ship them to the USA is the reason I have not bought a set.

Which handguards did you use with these? The stock XC ones?

Mitas E07....awesome tire! Got 8000 miles on my rear with about 80/20 street /dirt.Probably get another 1k before installing another E07 + the burnout I did last ride didn't help the wear either
For 50/50 tire very hard to beat. We just shipped a Pallett of Mitas tires to Florida & MX1 were great to deal with. I was first introduced to Mitas in S Africa last year....everyone in Africa is running these or the E09's on the big Adv bikes

thanks for the feedback on the tires. if you could get the heidenau tires for the same price, which would you choose. My brother can get them for me at wholesale, making the price pretty close.

I'm no tyre expert but I have put over 20000kms (somewhere over 12k miles) and I still had thousands to go. I've had the stockers, the heidinau's and two sets of Dunlop D606 and they're all good for some things and not so good for others.

I think at this point you need to flip a coin and try a set. If you don't like em, get the others next time.

With all due respect to all the well-meaning and experienced riders on here, nobody can tell you which tyre you will like most for your riding, roads, weather, and load. All you get online is massive OMG THOSE ARE CRAP or not. And even one case where there was an outcry about a type on the Husabergs being crappy, a guy I think rides his a lot more and better than I do disagrees and says they do fine. Go figure.

The safest bet is, barring any outcry of problems, don't fit, or something else you hate like say they wear too fast perhaps... just pick the one you feel has the best karma and only then will you learn how it suits you. And it's only a set of tyres, the most changeable part of a bike!

I see good things on both here, so knock yourself out. Try your brother's sweet deal and then if you don't like 'em you're not out as much.

That's the only answer I've ever come up with on tyres -- get the big issues checked out online or with mates, sure, then go do them yourself and you can lecture the next guy on whay this tyre is superior for this blah blah blah

Good luck. You have an awesome bike to play with tyres on!

Chris

Now it's just in the "find the time" bucket as I have a full few days at the moment but I held it next to my stock mount and barring the taper being wrong in the wrong spot, they look like they will do nicely. I will have to (happily) re-vise the bars but that should also mean I can get more adjustment back too!

Thweet.

Quite agree. Go get your cash out and try them yourself.

The question I want answered is :- are the Mitas rears any easier to fit than the Heidenaus.
The heidis are a BASTARD and I dread getting a flat in the middle of nowhere. Although, having said that, I reckon they're so stiff you could ride out of trouble.

Another thing...................has anyone experienced cracking on these tyres as in this thread? http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hub...e-safety-50899 Or have they cured the problem?
