Recent Olympic Loop Trip



Went around and thru the Olympic Mountain range this last weekend - Kept up with a KLR in the Dirt and Gravel, + a bit of more than expected rough terrain. I love this bike.

What magic did you use to fit a MT 90 on the rear?

The kind that makes a MT90 a Shinko 705 - They handle pretty well even though they are flattened out a bit in the rear. The front was the real squeeze - 130/80 Steering is more sluggish on road, but thats better off road from my experience. Oh and don't try this unless you can make your own fender brackets - you need about 1 3/8" more room under the front fender, and a bit more fender tilt.

Lowered pegs question ....

Hey ya'll .....

I heard from a friend of mine that Uly pegs, which are supposed to be lower than the stock Tiger pegs, will bolt right on.

Does anyone know if this is true?

And / or, does anyone have any suggestions for lowered pegs.

Reason I ask? Well, because I need to get some lowered pegs, for my tigger.

As it is right now, my knees feel real high up .....

According to a guy in CA calling himself "Tall Rob" on the forums, yes, it's true. I swapped notes with Rob a while back because I've been wanting to do the same thing.

These will lower the feet one inch:



Available here among other places. I haven't found them in silver... if that matters to you.

I run a Mitas E-09 Dakar on the rear and the Continental TKC 80 on the front. I chose the Mitas because it is a little cheaper and lasts longer than the TKC. However, I think they are only recommended for tube type rims so I would just recommend a set of TKC's to you. They handle great for a knobby and are made for heavy beasts like ours (we have same size tires as V stroms and GS's so most everybody will have the right size).

Someone say my name? Yes, they will fit the Tiger 1050. However, you will need to grind off some square bits at the base for them to swivel. Simple to do and well worth it.

Hey G-Funk, I don't know how you plan on using your Tiger, but if you plan on trail riding at all and standing up, I'd get the Touratech pegs. They are a little lower and a little more forward and have fantastic grip. One of the best mods I've done to my bike.

Believe they're TKC80s.
Looking through the thread I have to admit I like the older models. The newest look a lot like the Strom (not complaining, just an observation). I went back and forth on buying one, but my bank account won the argument that time. Nice rides and even better pics folks.. keep it up!

Here's my pretty blue girl taking a nap
Cracked bag mounting point (on bag) and bent mount bracket (on bike). Fixed with JB weld.
Damn slippery mud. Still cranked out 3500 miles after this with no problems. Ride report when I get around to it.
