Black Sump Guard

Hi Yossarian, I found this pic of Black sump Guard and other Powder coated bits on a Tiger

This looks Trick!

I have the sump guard and think I would like it better in black, but wanted to see a photo first if there is one available.

Thanks!

That happened long ago. As the miles accumulate my annoyance with the stock front suspension keeps growing. Something will be done. Maybe I'll swap in an XC suspension onto my roadie.

I put those pads on the rear and have been amazed at the stopping power the bike now has. I found the rear brake bordering on useless. Now, I use it. Good timing. I've been in the Adirondacks the last couple days. Damn. Nice roads up here!

More impressive than the black sump guard are the tubeless wheels - any body know how spendy these are?

2399 EUR ... $3150 (USD). Ouch. German price likely includes 19% VAT, but that doesn't make it more appealing ...

The newly launched explorer xc has the same size wheels as the 800. No idea on spares pricing though.

19" front. AND, different forks and discs etc. And, of course, single sided shaft drive on the rear. So they won't fit. And I doubt you could simply lace the rims onto XC hubs.
