With the Vario, you need tools to install/remove it. Minor nuisance, but I take it off when I go dirt riding, which is fairly often. I like the pocket of quiet air it offers, and the fresh air that still comes through the gap between it and the windscreen.
thanks! is it better than stock?

I wonder if they will have two kits, as the bar widths differ between the models. In any case, I will probably waIt to see what they come up with.

I've never had so much trouble trying to give somebody my money. It's very strange.

fbj913, I have the stock windscreen, and the addition of the Vario deflector is a major improvement...quieter, less buffeting, etc. I can't speak to the taller, optional windscreen Triumph offers. Oh, and I got the tinted deflector because my eyes are very light-sensitive...the tint significantly reduces glare.

I was wondering if anyone has the torque spec for the steering head bearing? Mine has developed the thunk on hard braking.

I just did a Germany tour on a '91 K75 that had a headlight switch but I don't know if the laws have changed since then.

It would be convenient to be able to switch off the headlight when doing service (for example, TuneECU stuff) as opposed to having to take out the fuse every time.
Europe wide, nay world wide = no lights switch.

No hazards either. I've just fitted some to mine. Scroll up a couple of pages or Tiger800 in the "How to" section.

I can tell you that, at least in GB, Triumphs do not have a headlight off/on switch. The early new model Bonnevilles did have the switch, but no longer.

Newer Triumphs, all models will not start if the headlight bulb (both filiments) or the bulb is removed - like when you are running Tune ECU or some other tuning program. The headlight wiring is part of the starter circuit. If the headlight bulb is not offering resistance, the starter will not engage.

This is a module that that plugs into the headlight wiring harness on one end and the headlight bulb plus into the other end. This device allows you to start your bike without the headlight being on. This particular module is for the Bonneville family of bikes with single headlights. I have not checked to see if they make one for dual headlights.

How completely ridiculous. I'd be pissed if I was stranded in the middle of no where for a burnt out headlight!!!

Not the bulbs the fuse, as the starter relay is on the same circuit. You have a spare 15A fuse in the box.

Thanks, I am really wanting not only the air to go over my head better but not hit my shoulders as much too. Winter is just around the corner and I don't plan on putting the bike away . I am really wanting a screen that keeps the air totally off my body...
