Went for a ride today with the Street Triple Intake cam. I added quite a bit of fuel above 20% tps at greater then 4k. I was sure to error on far too much fuel. Initial impressions are good with quite a bit more midrange tq, expecting plenty of punch up top. Hopefully I can hit the dyno soon.

Good first impressions sounds like. I am very interested in seeing what the results are. I love the Tigger, but a little extra HP with a relatively easy modification sounds very attractive. Likely Triumph will be making a similar easy mod like this on future 800 Tiger models.

Can the seat be removed with the rack in that position?

reports from OZ, where Mitas is one of the biggest tire brands, is atleast the same and some say more.

most tires have a few cracks and such atleast the long mileage ones. every time i run a mefo explorer a get a few yet it's a non issue.

really? i call BS.
every report i've seen is the E07 yields very high mileage for a 50/50

http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hub...899#post293533

yes it's a 130-17" not a 150-17" but this guy got over 18,000 miles before showing cord on his.
yeah that a low mileage tire if i've ever seen one.

One benefit of the Touratech back plate is that the tie down loops are bent down somewhat, so if you have a case on top you can still get your tie down straps hooked in there.

Im just telling you what ive heard. I never said i know first hand. Replacing tires when the cord shows is replacing a tire way to late. Also how many miles are being ridden on tarmac and how much off road? It all makes a difference.

Well, after 23 days, my Givi luggage racks arrived from Cli-Max. Can't beat the price, $113.84 + $15 shipping. Can't find them for under $206.00 anywhere else.

That's a good price on some very nice racks. Lots of options for side cases with them.
