Thanks

Might we worth a try to see how it is without a re-tune.

I have a Guia Roji ... and it's pretty good but TOO BIG. You can put 3 maps of Mexico next to each other ... and they ALL are different ... especially in and around the Sierra Tarahumaru .... where I've spent some time exploring.
doubt it. we still have to finish nor cal., then or & wa and british columbia plus az & nm, ozarks and w. nc on top of that doing BDR/Touratech maps for all the western states and our own line of dual-sport specific maps...lots to do.

i have the nat. geo & roji mex maps and i agree they are just so so.
i use the nat. geo map http://www.amazon.com/National-Geogr.../dp/1566955270 for picture planning but use bicimaps to actually get there. http://www.bicimapas.com.mx/Mapas_GPS_EN.htm traveling in mexico would be rough w/o a GPS.

Cheers
Several people on Tiger forums have said the "Fuel" end can is good and doesn't need a retune. No experience myself, just passing it on.

I've got the Triumph Tall adjustable screen but would like something wider to help keep the wind off my shoulders.

I'll bet this works well. I used a Puig "Up&Down" on my Scrambler and that was superb with the top bit being height adjustable.

Need more info on this screen, adjustment. I did 436 miles yesterday and the wind noise was a little rough at times. Do you have additional photos from the side? Thanks in advance.

Yeah this one is nice but very pricey, $399 I think. The model I have is almost to tall. I wouldn't want to go any taller.

No, because it's a photo from the Givi website. http://www.givi.co.uk/Screens--spoilers/AIRFLOW/AF6401
I was only contributing to the screen discussion by passing it on.

No, and for the UK buyer I've just found this http://www.tiger800.co.uk/index.php?topic=1837.15 DK motorcycles are offering a discount for "tiger800" forum members down to £149.99 with free posting within the UK.
All we need now is to hear from someone that's actually used one.
