The included instructions


A schematic with data for those sourcing their own components.


The switch needs to be a simple on/off with an LED for clarity.

Note: I would recommend installing to a switch fuse block rather than direct to the battery. Prevents issues with people messing around and you finding your hazards have been on all day!!

What you get is grand for a "localised" installation either at the front or at the rear (makes the switch harder to use though).
I though wanted the switch up front on the bars, the power to my eastern beaver pc8 by the ecu and the hazard relay and connections under the rear rack. This then requires some modifications, ie lengthening everything. Because the modded loom runs the length of the bike I added a connector to split the loom half way, under the "800" panel on the left.

From the front.
The switch is mounted on the bars just to right of the aux lights and heated grips



The supplied switch is not waterproof. I had a rummage and found some waterproof switch covers. Mark 1 switch housing




Made from high density nylon. The switch is round, the cover round so I made the housing from a scrap of round stock. The finished article, my mark 2 is aluminium



The loom runs from the switch following the bike loom from the bars under the tank, left hand side, along the frame and terminates at a connector under the "800 panel" as previously mentioned. It continues from the connector to the fuse block to the side of the ecu



And carries on to the rear rack.



The two green load wires attach to the rear indicators (white positive) with Posi-Taps (red PTA1800), not the supplied scotch locks. I got them here

All in I'm happy with the install.

Sry, was posting from my phone...let's try this. I haven't trimmed it yet or welded up the aluminum bracket mount yet but it should work OK. I have to build some sort of hugger since I will be getting rid of the rear upper fender, blinkers and taillight in favor of a LED sequential one from a CBR to clean up the lines a bit. The seat release will be moved to the right side.

If I read this right your going to remove the back tail plastic? That back plastic catches a lot of crap. I wouldn't remove it (unless your never taking it offroad or riding in the rain.)

Welcome to the club.

FWIW, not sure I mentioned this, but I was at the dealership I bought my Tigger from (and my Sprint actually) and they have 3 Tiggers on the floor (def one XC - orange - and I think a couple streeties)- dealer is Performance Cycles in MA.

No affiliation other than as a satisfied customer.

i rode it for a day or two with the stock tune + arrow pipe. i think the lean mixture caused it to sip fuel. With the arrow tune my mpg has dropped down to about 50 now. Not bad i guess.

Will someone please give me a link or two for a diagnostic cable I can purchase and use with TuneECU? Everytime I search for one the more confused I get on what works.

Hard to say since I generally do all my own stuff. I will say that PC went to bat for me when the crank on my Sprint snapped out of warranty - all was fixed on Triumph's dime. The service writer there, Derek, has been there a long time (which I think is a good thing/sign) and I know the part manager very well and he runs a tight ship.

I got mine on Amazon. Search there for " VAG-COM 409" and it should be a blue cable with a mini CD (which you will not need.)

Great thanks. I bought my bike at Precision in RI. They seem good, but Triumph is new. They did the first service, just cos I like that kind of thing on new bikes, but I'll only take it to a dealer for the valves. Nice to see who else is out there for the future.
