On a related item, I did notice that when you build a bike on Triumph's site and add the beak for the Saphire Blue, the white beak is added to the parts list. So maybe there's something screwed up in Triumph's Parts DB that takes a bit of finagling to get around?
Bizarre. Works fine for the UK.

Givi Sidecase Racks

Looking at some aftermarket stuff and I have a few questions:

1. Are the Givi sidecase racks spaced evenly across the rear of the bike.... or in other words... Does the exhaust side stick out farther than the other side... anyone have pics of from the rear with the Givi racks????

2. I also want to add some crash bars and looking at the different options it appears that none actually protect the plastic upper cowls???

On a side note, I may actually get to take my new to me Tiger out this weekend..... work flow and weather seem to be pointing in that direction



thanks again
-Brian

1.) Elan has them.



2.) Happy Trails offer the crash bars. Tyson has thoroughly tested them.

Thanks for the reply and info.

I like the idea of the HT crash bars.... not sure I dont think they look a little.... "odd" from the front view??? I found that HB makes a seperate high bar that would serve the same purpose and appears to blend in with the bike a little better... just an opinion (you'd think i'd have learned to keep those too myself )

Drilling Exhaust

I think it has been discussed before but can't seem to find the post. I'm buying a Leo Vince exhaust for my bike, but before I do so I was thinking about drilling the pipe/baffle out of the stock one just to see what it does. Has anyone already done it, if so, what difference does it make, and does it get rid of the popping during decel? If no one has done it then let me know and I'll take a short video.

Thanks

Thank you for the link, however it seems that they are talking about taking out the baffle on a Leo Vince exhaust and and talking about the stock exhaust.

that is going to be a problem. The exhaust takes up a lot of room. and any bag on that side wide enough to hold a helmet is going to stick WAAAY out.

Hm.
Much safer option. Use plastic bag if it rains.

I really don't like leaving my helmet out in the open. If I am concerned enough about its safety to lock it up. It needs to be in a case. Which is one of the reasons why I ponied up for the Triumph hard luggage.

Had the dual Givi on my KLR, which worked well, of course only ever needed to store a single helmet. The left case was large enough for the helmet, and the right my jacket. I did the asymmetrical thing on the KLR. With the SW-motec rack, it worked out almost perfectly, the out edges of the Givi bags where almosts an identacle from the centre of the bike.

So you just have the bags on your bike to store your helmet and jacket? I've always got stuff in my bags.

It all depends on what I am doing, if I am heading to the gym, my gym bag comes out, and the helmet goes in.

At the mall, don't usually have stuff in the bag until I get out of the mall

When I tour, yeah the bags are full. If I leave the bike, and the area is safe I leave the helmet on the inner part of the handle bars, over the GPS. Otherwise I take my helmet with me.

On my trip this summer, I might actually make a 3-4' long 1/4" coated air-craft cable for my helmet and jacket when I head off to take pictures and such.

hmmmmm
