I could see the connection without doing that. Made it quite easy.

Yep after about 1/8 a mile, one bar appeared and then another and another. By mile 1 it was all back to normal.

Looks identical to mine 2.5 months ago! Since then I may have modded mine a bit...

My thoughts exactly. Then I noted who the poster was and said, Naaaah, that's not HIS Tiger.

It's the "omg I am spending too much time looking at my beautiful clean bike and not enough thrashing the shit out of otherwise perfectly good rear tyres" hole.

Why does the triumph headlight protector say for offroad use only? Don't have one but was thinking about getting one.

It's illegal in most places to obstruct your headlights, so it's a CYA thing.

Probably because it "may" diffuse the light beam and dazzle oncoming vehicles.
IMO it's essential because the headlamp lenses are plastic and chip really easily.

OR, they didn't want to get into testing whether the headlight still met highway department standards after adding their protection...expensive in time and $$. And never enforced in most places.

My 2.5 year old battery needs replacing. What's the recommended Tiger 800 battery? Links would be nice. Thanks, Rob
