Cleaned my unifilter - it's been on for a year now. White spirit to clean then Rockoil foam filter oil to re-oil. Tried to get the unifilter oil but they can't post it to Ireland. Their suggestion was as above, but NOT an aerosol.

Front blinker relocation

Moved the front blinkers on my Tiger after my buddy broke one of his in a parking lot tip over. We made some brackets out of sheet metal, painted black. The sheet metal brackets were a trial, if it worked out, we were going to reproduce them in heavy Kydex plastic. Six months later, still no rust on the brackets, I'm in no hurry to make the plastic ones. The blinkers are mounted to the bolts behind the headllight, on the side of the body work that connects the tank area to the beak area. Will work on pictures soon. Ken

Triumph rear mudguard extension

Ordered the Triumph mud guard extension through MADSS and was told Triumph is no longer offering it due to a design flaw. Anyone else heard this? I would go for the Touratech one but I don't want their name plastered on the back of my bike. Ay other options?

The rear mud guard is now obsolete according to Triumph.

I purchased a set of truck mud guards(rubberized flaps), and cut one down, then mounted to the tag assembly.

Works great , looks like it part of the bike, cost $14 and I still have one left for the next bike.

Made my own out of an old sport bike rear fender. Cut it to size and bolted it to stock fender.

Question Front Tire Preference

I am preparing for a 4,000 mile ride from VA to ME and back. I am spooning on a Heidenau K60 Scout 170-70 rear, and I have a choice for the front between a Heidenau K60 Scout or a Mefo Explorer. I have both front tires on hand. Our route will be gravel and asphalt mostly. Anyone run these fronts and have a recommendation?

TIA

Just got back from almost 3000 miles riding in CO. Asphalt and gravel roads mostly. I mounted k60 Scouts front and rear. Loved the rear, front sucks. Don't know about the Mefo, but it has to be better then the k60. I'm putting the TKC80 I took off the front back on. Better grip both on and off road.

I heard they stopped making the rear extender because you can't use it if you have the Triumph panniers, the rack gets in the way. I have the extender and have never had a problem. The dealer did tell me they were discontinued after I got mine.

+1 on this. Front feels a bit out of sorts. Very loud too, sings going down paved roads.

+1 on the TKC 80 / K60 combo. Good grip on and off road.

The only problem, if you want to call it that is, you will go through two fronts for every rear. I am amazed at how well the k60 scout rear tire holds up. I've got 3000 miles on mine and it looks nearly new. In the past I have not gotten more then 1200 miles out of a Metzler Karroo, and 700 out of a TKC 80 rear X2. TKC 80 fronts go about 2500.
