This is the hose that I mentioned in my previous posts:





And my air filter (approx 10K miles):



I have to say, I did like the fact that Triumph put in semi-captive screws etc. where there is a possibility that said screw might fall in the throttle bodies. Nice touch.

Is that with or without a pre-filter?

Without - I have a pre-filter that I plan on fitting once I get a new air filter. BTW, the other side of the filter was spotless so it was clearly doing it's job.

Hmmm...the back and forth was just a little distracting. "Motorcycle journalist" is a real job?

"Irregardless" is not a real word.

Glad you mentioned the Explorer being updated to more XC function. Still, it's a hundred pounds more than the 800 which is already too heavy for real offroad going. Funny, the terrain is always pretty darn flat. Try 3' sand whoops, or a field of baby-head boulders.

Anyhoo, I do like mine, wouldn't trade it for anything else....yet.

Nice scenery, great place to ride, eh? No, I didn't hear enough 'eh's' and there was no 'aboot'.
I think I'll ride mine up there next summer. Back to my birthplace.

I should emphasize that my photo, quoted by you above, shows the dirty side of the DNA filter. So, as I wrote, the pre-filter does most of the filtering.
It makes me wonder if we need to fit a filter inside the airbox at all when we're using the pre-filter.

Oh, and, I found an easy way to remove the pre-filter from the airbox. The rubber is flexible enough that you can just insert a flat blade screw driver in the middle at the top, and push it right through, and it'll lever out nicely.

Not a chance I'd rely on the pre-filter alone - no matter how good it appears to do it's job.

As for fitting/removing the pre-filter, that's exactly how I am going to do it (if it's too stiff I was going to give it a blast with a heat gun to soften the rubber up a little if I had to).

Well, only 75% of HS students are finishing school. I think the figure for college is much lower. An entire nation of f'ing dummies here in the US.

Sorry for the thread-jack.
Is that even a word....?

Gentleman,
Anyone using Touratech seat on their 800?
The one that actually made by Kahedo BTW...
I am very interested in your impression on how it works for long trips...

No need to soften. Locate the bottom first, then the sides and finally the top edge. Gets progressively stiffer as you locate each side but if you use a broad flat blade screwdriver it pops in easily enough.

What is this bracket? Did you fashion one or buy one? I'm not super creative 'making' things for my bike, and I'd really like to get my tool tube mounted.

I like all the things you've done, I have many of the same mods as you.

I'm heading up the slab to grab some Powerball tickets today, going to be a chilly one.

Tiger 800 XC Tank Bag

Ok... I'm particular.
I would like to buy a tank bag, but I really don't like either of the Triumph tank bags as they are too tall for my needs.
I want a lower profile bag that is easily removable for fueling.

I did watch a You Tube video about a Givi tank bag with the lock ring release. Looked pretty good.
Have any of you fella's bought one of these? Any other suggestions?

The Bags-Connection stuff is really nice, especially, compared to the Triumph offerings. I have four of B-C's bags and am extremely happy with them.

+1 on the Bags Connection

I have the Micro and its perfect for what I want to carry. It's low profile. When I stop for fuel, I pop it off the tank ring and sit it between the gage cluster and the bars.
