Still a decent deal from what I remember, but they did have them at like $130 shipped - which I'm not sure how they did since that is by far a butt load cheaper than anyone else!

I will say that while I received a bum part (manufacturing defect) in the kit, Cli-MAX has been working with Givi to rectify the situation - and I feel confident they'll follow through. Will update when it happens.
Well that makes sense then. I've checked out alot of different venders including these guys. Gotta love paying more Thanks for the heads up and enjoy the ride!

Couldn't dream of doing that on my DRZ or CRF! Bike performed flawlessly - even through some nasty weather. Me on the other hand, needs some work.

I ride every day, but we're only talking 5 mile commutes. After an hour or two on the Tiger, my right wrist would get pretty sore. Guess I need to condition it and maybe look into a throttle lock? Butt would get pretty sore, but I was able to move it around and keep it awake. May look into some different wind screen options. Stock wasn't too bad, but if I stuck my head down a little lower, it was like heaven down there (I'm not that tall at 5'8")! I definitely need a lighter jacket... It was probably in the mid 90's with high humidity, and I was pretty miserable in my Alpinestars black leather jacket. Was wearing full gauntlet roadrace gloves too, which didn't help with the heat...

Very happy with my purchase so far! Now I need someone to buy my DRZ so I can afford some farkles :-D
Excellent! Easy throttle lock I use is http://www.aerostich.com/a-to-b-util...e-control.html
There are many windshield options out there, I'm a similar height as you (5'7) and use the Triumph adjustable screen and it works fine for me with the seat in either position. I'm in the process of cutting the original one into a "flyscreen" for summer use.

I was actually reading about this lil device when I was researching them. Looks like it'll do the job. Also read about the o-ring, but I don't have any bar-ends on mine, so that probably wouldn't work out of the box.

Good to hear about the adjustable screen. Just for my clarification, is the adjustable screen just the stock screen with some bits to adjust it? Or is it the larger touring screen as well?

I don't have the exact dimensions but it's quite a bit larger. I'll see if I can get a photo later comparing them.

Mine did this too. I cleared the code and it never came back, that was about 6,000 miles or more ago I guess the dust and mud get on the ABS ring and confuse it...

And the guy on the left on the 800 has better taste in handguards.

Keep the DRZ if you want to do some more challenging d/s. I have a few bikes in my garage and if I had keep two, it would be the DRZ and my tiger roadie. Mine is 8 years old and worth much more than it's value.

I am also 5'8" and have the adjustable mechanism. When it's hot and windy, I lower the screen. When it's calm and cool, I raise it.

No. Nuts would be if you were posting this some time between October and May.
