As long as the engine doesn't care, neither do I. Any good fixes out there for with screen?

Looks sweet, guess that's one less concern. Will it keep the wind off your shoulders if you are a narrow guy? wearing a size medium jacket?

Always best to change the oil after a clutch frying session. And he got it all from the KTM dealer somewhere near Trieste.

Brace the screen with Givi screen brace kit for a GS. You'll need to make your own bottom brackets.
Add a Wunderlich or MCA screen lip and you're sorted.

Kildareman, is that the Triumph adjustable screen mechanism you have there? and is it at least somewhat effective without the added customization you've done?

so per the manual, is it true with ABS, you need to have the dealer tune and ECU cable to do a brake bleeding and fluid change ?

With my car, you only need to cycle the ABS pump if you think you have significant bubbles in it. You can easily push fluid through it via normal methods. I suspect the Tiger is the same.

I found some third party cables that look like they should work for the ecu cable. Where u guys get your dealer tool? I have also seen tuneboy out there any feedback
also are you able to do your throttle body sync and MAP updates through dealertool?

Dealertool comes with it's own cable.
dealertoolcouk.ipage.com/
Yes

cables on ebay and the like should work with tuneecu. Check tuneecu.com for details.

On some GM stuff, you can't bleed the brakes at all, without the module valves being opened. My vacuum pump will not pull the fluid, even with the gauge buried.

You're better off to have the valves opened, to ensure there are absolutely no bubbles in the system. If you should mess around and get them, it can be difficult to get them out. Linked ABS, like Honda, is an absolute PITA to get cleaned out.

I like that nice job

If you mounted the braces on to the adjustable bolts some how, it would be perfect
