With such moderate temps and no snow, I hope to be riding soon.

I may have a connection for you. Standby

Don't play pissed off - there is no reason for it, I was asking politely. I was curious what was causing this. As I use "plain text reply" it's pretty damn hard to find the right bit of text to quote in something that looks like this:

Sure.

I pulled mine early on. The canister and bracket were removed, along with the return hose to the throttle bodies. I plugged the nipple on the throttle bodies with a cap. The hose that leads from the tank down to the canister, I routed up into the front alongside another hose and ziptied it to keep it out of the way. 15 minute job tops.

I use the internet for info and comedy. I don't get pissed online. It's a recipe for disaster.

Question need leg room

Just picked up my 2012 Tiger XC last weekend. Love the ride, but the riding position is a little cramped. I've got some Rox Pivoting Risers ordered for the handle bars, but need some lowered pegs at the other end. What do you guys recommend, the SW Motech pegs from Twisted Throttle or the Pivot Pegz? The SW pegs are 15mm lower than stock and the Pivot Pegz are only 10mm lower than stock, but their site claims that the pivoting action will more than compensate for the difference. Pricing is close enough between either pair that it's not the deciding factor. Will the 5mm difference be noticeable? Is there a big enough difference between them in quality?

Canister removal

I took the canister off my roadie when it got in the way of installing the Triumph center stand. It's attached with a steel bracket and three bolts IIRC. Didn't like the idea of the rubber hose dangling down there open to the world, so I shortened it with a knife and stuck a small inline fuel filter on it to act as a breather. Next time I have the bike on a hoist, I'm going to remove the hose from the upper end and plug the port.

That is what I had planned to do initially, but my dealer said he would get me the triumph plate for $159, which was hard to turn down. After it was on order and I called to check up on it, he then mentioned it was on back order. Now I am thinking outside the box. If I have enough free time I may come up with something off the reservation. I need to build racks for my bags anyway so who knows......

Center Stand

Called A local dealer here in Ontario, no stands in stock, and he has a June/July date for delivery.

I thought triumph requested unsold stands be sent back. I don't know, there doesn't seem to be a lot of complaints from current owners with the stand that there should be such a major re-design. Who has a stand now and is unhappy with it?
