I did not install the weights, nor did I move the handlebars. Just added the Bark Busters.
Rather annoying as the bike was as smooth as silk prior to the Bark Busters.

Have a link of checking the motor mount? Although I doubt it is related as the buzziness came at the exact same time as the Bark Busters

I originally purchased the weights and planned on installing them but all the screws that came with the weights were a thicker diameter and could not be used with the stock handlebars

Maybe just noticing it more now with the guards on.
Check for Bueller's post on maintenance with pics and info on checking the lower mount. Mine was loose, tightening it smoothed out any vibes left.

I have a Pelican 1550 mounted on my AltRider -- works great, no issues.

All that requires is sourcing the same flat head bolts in 6mm vs 8mm. Then they work just fine. I have read where people have drilled out and re-tapped the bar inserts but a) I thought too much work and b) too great a risk buggering up your heated grips if you have them.

Just my thoughts.

I suggest you get to the Opticians and get a better set of glasses because I can plainly see it an Oxford.....the blue lettering.

Don't do that. Use bolts from a Tiger 1050. They fit perfectly.

She's pretty hung up, on the 1050's passenger accommodations. But, I'd rather have the lighter weight/weight distribution of the 800.

Ah, that. Okay. Although there isn't much that will beat a full Kahedo seat setup for rider and passenger on an 800 ... Unless she likes feeling like sitting on your shoulders that is ...

Nothing wrong with my glasses or the magnifying glass I employed. If you can make out the name then your monitor has twice as many pixels as my old 21". NOT

But thank you for identifying the bag.

After checking out Pilot3's aftermarket tail light for the Tiger, I made one of my own.

It's a Whelen TIR-3, attached with some cheap aluminum that I got from Home Depot. Add a relay triggered off the green brake light wire and presto!



Here you can see the beefy harness I built... I went with 16 gauge wire for no good reason other than I had a lot. The excess wire I ran up to the battery. I suppose I could have powered the whole damn thing off the power for the rear brake light, I might do that.



Above you see the stock tail light without the brakes applied. Below is the stock tail light plus TIR-3 with the brakes applied. The camera was set in manual mode so no metering changes between both pictures.

Actually, that's one of things she likes about the 1050; the up-high passenger position. And, that's one of my complaints, because it makes the bike difficult to handle in slow-speed situations. The 800 makes the passenger feel more like one with the rider, to me.
