I would love my Tiger more if it:

A. Handled like a dirt bike, and weighed the same.

B. Accelerated like a sport bike.

C. Carried cargo like an SUV.

D. Got mileage like a diesel Jetta.

E. Hauled the wife and all the kids.

F. Cost the same as a used KLR.

G. Spit flames out the tail pipe at every stop light.

H: Made strippers swoon.

I: Was unanimously hailed by everyone on ADV Rider as the greatest motorcycle of all time.

J: Came only in black, with lots of carbon fiber doo dads. (Stock, of course).

Did I forget anything?

I know Happy Trail and Twisted Throttle stock them...and you may want to be sure they come wit the rubber "bumpers" to prevent rattling.

So, I'll just spell it out here.
There are 6 holes you'll need. Two for the latch block at 6.3mm dia. (M6 clearance) and two for the lower bobbins also 6.3mm. Then there are two anti-rattle rubber bungs and they require 6.5mm dia.
OK so to space it all out. They are all symmetrical about a centre line running along the centre of the bike. The two holes for the latch block are 27mm apart. The two for the bobbins are 227mm apart and the two for the bungs are also 227mm apart.
The holes for the latch block are 215mm above the bobbins and the rubber bungs should be around 100mm above the bobbins.
If that not clear let me know.

Just to remind you how things are....
Thanks, I'll take a look at it Thurs or Fri when I get back in the shop.

I can make sense of that.

BTW, I turned my PMs off as I was getting too many and couldn't get back to people fast enough. Emails only now.

Thanks again,

We've been keeping an eye on this bike and we're also tinkering with the idea of making a Top Rack for the Tiger 800.

This is our current F800GS Top Rack from which the design would be adapted:




Caribou QFS system


Caribou QFS with top box mounted up -quick release and no tools! (thanks for the pics fastredbike!)


Givi/Kappa Monokey


Rotopax 1 Gal. -360* of slots still accessible with it mounted


Kolpin JR fuel pack mount



We have been very progressive in developing a top rack that does more than hold a bag!

The feature list:

-2" fore & aft adjustment for solo and two up with a center key-hole quick release to facilitate swaping out features
-Rotopax fuel pack top mount and side mount on the F8GS version, but not on the KTM 950/990 version. This side Rotopax mounting may also appear on the Tiger 800 version
-Kolpin JR. 1.5Gal. fuel pack top mounting
-Givi/Kappa Monokey top box mounting
-SW-Motech Trax top box mounting
-Caribou QFS system (DIY) top box mounting (designed to work with any Pelican type box)
-KISS -our own simple inexpensive top box mounting (designed to work with any small to medium size Pelican type box)
-fully CNC machined so they are no sharp edges on any of the slots or around the perimeter

This gives you a whole bunch of top box and fuel solution options!

See the thread here of how it evolved and started the innovation at the end of '09 :
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=536723

It is also optimized in slot placement to work with a variety of different top bags and teams up perfectly with the Giant Loop Great Basin Saddlebag. More details here: www.motooverland.com (although the site is a little behind right now!)

If it goes ahead (so far it's likely), we would be aiming to have this available sometime late Winter or early Spring (maybe even earlier?).

I would love to hear feedback and thoughts on it!

Thanks for checking it out.

Dave

You can buy them in pairs as an accessory. Try hunting for Pt.# KFT.00.152.205, Givi/Kappa Monokey Adapter kit. So you get 2 x blocks, 4 x posts, 4 x rubber anti vibration bungs and all the nuts and bolts necessary.
I got mine through SWmotech in the UK. Cost 15.08 + tax + delivery.

Hi Dave,

I'm VERY interested!
Would like to know what you think the price would be is greatly different to the GS version ($120.00)

Would also be VERY VERY interesting if there is the possibility to fit NOMADA Top Cases or ZEGA Top Cases to them???

Let me know when they are available please.

Yes. Clearly it should come with a small tail-mounted bag the size of a typical dual-sport tool kit bag, but based on the Tardis so it's huge inside and can fit a month's worth of touring gear, a set of spare tires, and that bundle of firewood you need to get from the campground check-in area to your campsite.

Wolfman Expedition Bags with Happy Trails SU Racks

I finally got my Happy Trail SU racks and Wolfman Expedetion bags for my 800XC. Pictures are below with a little bit of information above the picture. Also there is NOTHING in the bags but air. I also wanted to use my Wolfman Large Rollie bags to attach to the sides when I need that little bit of extra room.

Large rollie bag is black and on the left. This will work perfect for the long rides and will keep the weight close to the bike.


Pic without Rollie Bags.

Pic from the back. I will use the gap between the left rack and the bike to mount an external gas tank/can.


Front View

Wolfman says that the straps need to go from one bag to the other. I didn't want straps across my rear seat so I took full advantage of the side grab bars. I switched a buckle on each bag and it works fine. This should work out great especially with two up riding.

The SU racks have this plate that goes across the top of their rack. Instead of wrapping the velcro straps around the rack like I did on the bottom ones I just simply fed it through the little slat and connected the straps in the back. It holds just fine. I also put a little safety wire through the straps and connected it in the center just for a piece of mind.




So far I'm happy with the set up. The real test will be the first good ride with them on. Overall the set up will hold just as much as aluminum bags and be much much lighter. What do you think?

Looking good

If I weren't such a cheap fook, I'd have a set of those (I use my 25 buck Swedish rucks instead...cos...well I'm cheap) although they do seem a little small for my use.
