Joe Rocket manta $50 at a local Suzuki dealer.
That is why I mounted the manta backwards, wasn't in the way as much.
What spoiler is that??

I have the MRA X-creen http://www.twistedthrottle.com/trade...view/6777/845/

It flops around like crazy, but I have a bracket from my Givi windshield that holds it steady.

GPS mount

With all the locking, windshield mount fancy GPS mounts lately I feel a bit like a luddite... just using the same old U bolt I've been using forever.

New sidestand switch... if you've ever bottomed out, you should check if yours still works. It's in a very vulnerable spot.

Easy ABS Off?

Have had my 800 XC for about a year now and love it! My only real complaint is how complicated it is to turn off the ABS when going back and forth between on and off road conditions. Has anyone heard if there could possibly be a work around or fix for this?

I'm wondering if newer models will have a software update to the computer that will allow for a one button solution like on the BMW. Sure would be nice if this were then available as an update for current models.

Easy solution is to fit a handlebar switch connected to one of the abs fuse positions. You then mount the fuse Online with the switch.

It's been done...I am about to do my bike. There's a thread on Tiger forum UK....install a relay that momentarily breaks power to the 20 amp ABS pump under your seat & the the ABS shuts off without any issues or Codes flashing. Buy a Kill switch that operates momentarily & 20 amp 12v Relay with a normally closed contact, intercept the wire going to the ABS pump.

I just removed mine & crimped the wires together & cut off the bracket...simple fix

I was seriously thinking about just leaving it with the plunger ripped off, since it was running fine and I generally don't like idiot switches that can go wrong and leave you stranded... then I recall that I seem to be idiot about once a decade and ride away with the sidestand down - I have been saved by these devices a few times.
