My 2011 performs fine - but doesnt feel like 114 HP. So guess the 2012s must have turbos. Wa state titles don't have HP rating on em.

Nope ....... Flux Capacitors .........



Seriously - from everything I've read, they're 95hp. I don't own one yet, but will in the near future .......

What model Cycra's did you try? I was looking at the Cycra Pro Bend Center reach or the Cycra Pro Bends. The Moose's are also an option. I happen to like the deflectors.

From what I can tell with my dial caliper, the Nekken bars on the Tiger are 1 1/8" round in the center between the clamps, but then change to an oval just outside the clamp. The Pro Bend Center REach are only available in 7/8" or 1 1/8". Will these clamps work? What is the bar size at the end of the bar?

Thanks. But since there is a bit of an oval shape to the outside of the clamps, will a round 1 1/8 work ok? I'm hope it will. I'm gonna head to the accessory shop on Wednesday and check out some with the bike there to try them on for size. I'll report back.

For the sake of complete accuracy.......they are 95Ps ("Pferdestärke" [metric system], German translation of Horse power) which equates to 94bhp (brake horse power). Blame the unelected idiots in Brussels for all this confusion.

BT - what's the scoop on the 95 limit - is it some ECC (fecking retards) thing ? Is it due to some tiered licensing sort of thing ? I know there was a reason Triumph kept it below 95 and I always assumed it was down to some legislation....

France has a legal limit of 106HP if I recall correctly.

Also, there was a long time manufacturer self imposed 100PS limit in Germany, not legally enforced. Lots of motorcycles had 98PS though as it was much cheaper in insurance than 100.

I bet the 95HP is a value to stay under a big jump in insurance cost.

This conversation reminds me of a story I've heard from the prohibition times here in the US. The story goes that certain grape juice producers (former wine makes) sold their juice with a warning:
If you add :
1½ cups of sugar
¼ teaspoon of wine yeast
¾ cup of warm (not hot) water
To a gallon of grape juice,
You may turn it into wine, which is prohibited.

I picked up the xc today. The Uly had one last ride anyway. I will never complain about the fun I had with the Uly.



I didn't have a clue how to set up the display for the ride home. Had time display for the trip only. It really didn't matter.
This is going to be a great ride.


Now I have to figure out the pannier racks and top case mounting.

Later ,
Tim

I'd love to hear your impressions of one versus the other. Especially in terms of seat height/comfort.

Just tweak the bend to fit, they work just fine.

Side bags and racks

Hey Neparider, don't get in a hurry on those bags. I drop my 800XC off with Al Jesse (Jesse Luggage Systems) this Sunday as a mock up bike for some new products. I asked for some narrower bags. He indicated he had some other things on the drawing board. He said it with be ready in 7 - 10 days. Boy do I like this bike. 7 hours from Las Cruces to Phoenix area, still ready for more. Comfy seat 50 - 55 mpg @ 80 mph.
