Do these make my butt look big



Don't you just love motorcycles and all the goodies you can fix them up with

Nice bike Jerry, I'm hoping to purchase a Tiger from Doug Douglas Triumph myself where did you buy the Konvoi top box?

Thanks, Doug

Front Fender Riser?

I'd like to do this, but $40 bucks for a 2 small brackets & some crappy hardware is too much for me. Has anyone rigged up their own?

Oh, and the anti-shock handlebar risers from Rox, anyone have a part number for me please?

I'm with you on the price for the brackets.

My solution ? I got drunk and then went to the Touratech web site...didn't seem too bad that way

I'm starting to get overwhelmed, I've spent so much and have more to spend - its time to start spending less and riding more!

Doesn't help for me. I started refusing to buy from Touratech as they are generally 50 to 80% more expensive than the same stuff in the German Touratech web store - where it is already expensive.

Agreed 100%

I do have some accessories on the bike but have not really "gone to town" with them as I'm trying to concentrate more on USING the bike rather than ACCESSORIZING the bike. Sometimes I can't help myself, though.

I hear ya. I only really bought stuff from there that I couldn't find elsewhere - I got most of my stuff from Twisted Throttle. I still had to do it drunk though given their prices...

I got mine about a month ago. It is a two man job to install. 3 or 4 different spacers made the job a little challenging.

I put mine on last week. Its worth $40. It's really easy to install and will save you tons of time to try and make one.

I was thinking I might just go to Home Depot and spend 10 minutes looking around the hardware section. It's going to be a week or two before I hit the dirt so I have the time.

What do all of you think of the radiator guard, and fork/shock socks?

I made my own fender risers from some extra s/s parts I had laying around. Quite easy actually and If I remember right I got something like 10 mm more rise than the TT ones.

I have the ROX risers too, sorry dont remember the part #. Great item and helped the pain between my shoulder blades go away. I was sent the non-annodized ones first when I paid for the annodized so be careful. I didn't buy direct from ROX as they were out at the time. The annodized match much better with the existing brackets. ROX helped me sort out the whole mess with the vendor, great company and product. You might want to consider the anti-vibe ones as I started feeling a vibration after I installed them. I do run a knobby tire though. I solved that with a throttle lock and bar end weights. Great now.

Since I'm cheap, I made the risers out of scrap aluminum sheet metal. Why pay $40, when all you gotta do is be able to drill some holes and a few cuts. Granted, not as pretty, but neither is my homemade rock guard.

Did pay for teh fork socks though, couldn't find a koozie small enough to use.

So you think fork socks are a good idea? How about the shock?

Personally, I put the universal Acerbis airbox mudflap on mine as several others have done to protect the shock. Works perfectly and easy to do.

There are several posts showing guys doing this mod. Here's one with the Acerbis part number: http://advrider.com/forums/showpost....postcount=6831
