You are correct. I made them a year ago so my memory was not so good. I made mine 20mm vs the TT ones at 15mm. That was all the brake lines allowed. 3k miles with them and not a problem.

yes, it does display the odo when you first fire up... for two seconds or so, then disappears...

the question is, can i be "re-flashed" to behave differently.

the way it is now, it sucks.

The regulator is probably inside the plug - it doesn't have to be very big as that's not much of a voltage change and the current the GPS draws is pretty low. I have no idea if Zumo's are 12V - I know my Nuvi is straight USB/5V. The lump after the plug is probably an RF filter of some sort - it just stops RF interference from the engine getting to the Zumo.

This is all conjecture on my part and I really hope I'm wrong.

Thanks. Not an option, that's the way the 2012's come.

I like the color too. Very unusual. The dealer said it's a slow seller, so I got a better deal because of it.

I don't know about the handle change, it kinda looks like a team green color.

Anyway, the kawidad came from my son owning a kawi at the time I took the name, but hey, I also have a KLR, so it still fits. Hmm, Papa Tiger, I like it............

Yeah, my avatar is a strom motor, which I used to own. But, since I'm kinda a gear head I like motor shots and stuph so I'll have to think on that.

SW Motech are the same. You have to use the UK distributor and pay extra for the privilege.

We're in the same boat here in Canada. We're supposed to have NAFTA, North American Free Trade Agreement between Canada, USA and Mexico, only to get charged exorbitant brokerage fees at the border. I live on the border so can cross border shop easily but there are so many restrictions it's almost not worth it.

Considering a new Triumph and my closest dealer is actually in the US but they're not allowed to sell to Canadians. There's a $1,300 price difference between US and Canadian list. Average cost to import is around $500, so still a decent savings. The dealer would be charged a $10,000 fine for selling me a bike. Free Trade my ass.

380 miles of heaven today here in New England

The more I ride this bike, the more I love it - it's easily the best bike I've ever owned in 35 years of biking - it does everything that I need it to do.

Ok, just a first here. Picked up the bike, nice pic of the rear Heidenau K60 Scout. Just before I got my tag and loaded it up with my engine guards & jacket.



Out front another pic. Need to install engine & headlight guards. Tomorrow a bit of riding

Had the dealer install the fog lamps and rubber, I'll be getting the rest.




I can't believe how much of a difference this bike is over my Scramber - very happy. Sorry for the picture quality, taken from the phone, just excited and wanting to officially join the fray.

Mine showed the odo for awhile. I can't remember what I did to fuck it up, but I did. I swear. It worked for awhile, then I did something and it didn't. The manual AND all the experts on the web say it can't happen, but mine did, and I was happy. The odo went away and I wasn't happy. I don't know how I did it, and can't get it back. I'm not really sure why Triumph thinks no one wants to know how many miles are on their bike. At the end of the day, the biggest problem with this is that you can't get the info. your looking for, and that seems goofy to me

When you're done riding, and turned off the bike, turn the key back on and look quick. You can also scroll to it, but that's an even bigger PIA. I'm not sure either why Triumph thought this was a good idea, I like looking down and seeing how many miles are on the bike.

New 20634MAP.hex

I just uploaded the new fuel map for the Roadie ABS, the 20634MAP.hex using TuneECU. Anybody have any experience with the new map? Better mileage maybe?

Filling up gas

How do you guys do it without the gas spilling out? This is a real pain. I see this plastic restriction that the dealer tells me it's an anti siphon device. Can I remove it?

Thanks,
