I'll try to remember to take a pic this weekend.

I'm looking forward to the results.

I hope you will get the top end rush AND keep the torque

Heated gear controller

Has anyone installed a Gerbing's permanent dual controller on a Tiger 800? I'm looking for mounting and routing ideas. The two rotary switch controls are going to require a lot of clearance behind a mounting panel, and I think I may have to make a mounting box to contain them, and them attach that box somewhere. Thoughts?

In any case, at the rate you're riding it the running in period will be over pretty quick anyway.
The other thing I'll add is that I'm finding that I ride the 800 between 4K & 6K rpm anyway so you won't really loose too much by sticking to the regime.
Ride it! Hate to tell you that you bike was on Triumph's Dyno before it left the factory....don't think they babied it.
Triumph's machine work on their motors is state of art. Ride it...don't beat it & she'll run forever.

Hopefully this will bring some serious "Giddy up" to the XC's motor.

I'm working on a mounting solution for a firstgear heated grip controller. Still in the contemplation stage. Thinking there is room under the instrument cluster for some sort of switch mounting plate. I'm equally curious to hear how anyone else has solved this problem.

When you get off he bike without remembering to first unplug, a very common occurrence, it is not a big deal with the provided electrical tether they give you to attach to the battery. The tether just automatically aligns itself with the force pulling the plugs apart and they separate with no damage. With a permanently mounted plug on the bike though it is a different story and you could potentially damage the outlet or the plug on your gear when this happens.

I think you would be better off with a wireless controller made by warm&safe. I velcros to the tank or where every want it or just get the $10 pouch gerbings makes and attach it to your belt. Gerbings and Warm&Safe controllers use the same plugs so are interchangeable.

Heated gear controls

I bought a couple of WarmnSafe's mounted controllers (one for a set of Hot Grips, one for my jacket). There's a spot on the plastic gas tank trim piece, lower left, where there's enough clearance to mount the circuit boards. I drilled a couple holes in the bottom edge of the plastic and did a test fit. They are out of sight while seated on the bike, but can be easily reached. The electronics modules are attached to the top of the ECM, next to the battery, with the stickum Velcro furnished.

WarmnSafe says the circuit boards are waterproof, so I'm going to give this a try.

It's about time I got a smugmug account; this is hard to explain without pictures.

I just use a portable controller and clip it to my tank bag, you can see it in this photo.



I connect the controller to the 12v power port with one of these.

You dont have to have smugmug to post pics. This may be the devil thing to say around here... photobucket is free.

After a few hours on the dyno I've got her dialed in. The bike was spot on in the low load areas but took a ton of extra fuel over 25% tps and in the higher RPMs.

Fuel map scaling (Percentage above base Arrow map fuel tables)


The bike feels amazing but they dyno was reading very low. Given how much fuel the bike took there is no way I believe the dyno (86hp). The dyno was a one off deal meant for 300hp bonneville bikes :). They told me it was about 10% off from a typical dyno.



As you can see the TQ does not drop nearly as much as on a stock bike. It also feels great with no apparent loss down low. I'm happy with how flat I got the afr and the newfound pep. Over 8k the thing brings back memories of the 675.

The Dyno
