accessories

Any way to just look at accessories on the Triumph site without configuring the whole damn bike over and over again? Really annoying

Any existing owners that weigh 250lbs or more. I like to know if the 800 could work for me at 250lbs + 50lbs of gear/ATGATT without feeling underpowered on the slab.

I felt no difference in power while carrying the wife as a pillion. Together with gear we are probably 350lbs...

That may apply to me

The Tigger is absolutely fine on the slab, fully loaded. In fact I took a passenger to Canada last year - all slab, and even then it handled the slab with no problem at all. Now, compared to, say, my Sprint, I had to occasionally knock it down one more cog than I normally would have to when overtaking, but it is perfectly happy on the slab with those kind of loads.

I'll probably be screwed, then.... my sales contract lists the price of the bike itself as $1 less than the MSRP on Triumph's site.

I weigh 260, you will have no problems with the bike on the road. We did a Tahoe Natl Forrest loop last year 2 up (she weighs ~140) and the bike did just fine. Only mods are a Leo Vince pipe and a 15T front sprocket.

In my opinion you will want to upgrade the rear suspension. It is the best modification of the many I have done.

I wonder if any of the aftermarket windscreen makers will consider a "sport" style screen for the Tiger. I'm a fan of the clean air you get with the screen removed. It's just like riding a naked bike, but it looks a little unfinished without the screen on. I was playing around with different angles, and I think a windscreen that is similar to the stock at the bottom, but tapers to just the top of the gauge cluster would be nice. Thoughts?

I believe there's a "-" button so you can remove an accessory from your configuration.

Cut down your stock screen. Take off a bit at a time, until you get to a height you like. You can paint the backside whatever color you like.

Just put masking tape on the screen where you're going to make your cuts. Use a jigsaw with the finest tooth count you can find. Finish the edges with 1000 grit sandpaper. I've cut down a few screens like this.
