Looks like some sort of custom 'Y' adapter would have to be made.

Or just have a really long brake line made that still loops over the tire, but all the way up one fork leg, across lower triple tree, and down the other fork leg. No need to over engineer.

Something I've learned and something to share.
I always wondered how the tip of my beak cracked off. The TT front fender extenders extend too much?
Also, the front fender has brackets with tabs that hold or contain the front brake lines. There is a tab on the back of the bracket that I cut off. After 6,000 miles, the brake lines still stay in the bracket. But if the front fender flies off I probably won't even notice it since the brake lines aren't attached the to the front fender.
I cut the tabs as I was attaching the TT extenders and wondering why I even bought them.

I'm thinking the best deal for the front for mud and real offroad would be to mount the back of a sumo fender up high in conjunction with the beak...do away with the lower fender. Double brake lines to keep them out of the way of the wheel.

I just move the brakeline out of the groove in the front fender when riding mud or rocks. No need to cut anything. Pop it back in for regular use.

Dumb question:

Can you remove the tank with fuel in it?

Yes. Connector on the bottom self-seals when it is disconnected

There is a forum on a guy who did the fog light... Step by step. It's pretty much the same as heated grips but was real useful for tips and stuff.

Yes but don't try a full tank unless you really like weight training and have plenty of space, as you stagger around trying not to drop the tank.

TIP: When disconnecting the fuel connector push it in slightly to release physical pressure on the two tabs that you have to press to release the connector.

NU 3704

There was an earlier NU 3703, but I believe that the 3704 will fit all of the Tiger 800s.

Thank you, Yossarian. I wonder where one can purchase from in the U.S. Did a Google search, and nothing real turned up. Can someone please post a description and dimensions of the filter? It would be nice to find a replacement for it :-)
