Hard to believe it was 70 degrees today in January...simply had to get out for a ride. Ended up crunching a lot of gravel today and it was a blast

Thanks, you must to with an inmate name like that (the black ones are the fast ones right? )

I always keep an extra cold one for anyone passing through on a bike

Man I changed my gearing yesterday, new rear cush, fresh chain, and ran the wheel the cams to their fully forward position. I have done it on the dirtbikes, but what a difference on the tiger. One down upfront and one up on the back 19/48 - 18/49! IT ROCKS! It definitely (duh) robbed me of some top end, but 10-20mph difference isn't much here; with our curvy roads the triple digits aren't too common. It'd probably still reach the same top speed, but would need to be wound out. I found myself coming outa turns yesterday with the front wheel levitating like I was on a dirtbike She always seems to surprise me lol

p.s. iOs users should check out baldy's app http://www.awesomize.com/

Thanks dude! It makes a difference in muddy and wet conditions imho. I dont know about tigers (my fender was from the previous pwner). But, Ive seen some guys on other big bikes have debris issues with the wheel huggers. Has anyone experienced such with their tiger?

It's a high supermoto (read short) fender from acerbic made for 950 Ktm adv's. Be sure to use a brace or at speed I doubt it'd stand long to the abuse.



^heehee parked at work in front of our "orange" shop. Just outa sight rests our sales mgr's Aprilia

It seems that you don't realise that the standard front is an 18. It's quite common for owners to fit a 19 as it calms everything down and you're not constantly looking for a 7th gear.
The standard rear is a 46. It would seem the previous owner had played with the gearing. Although, what he ended up with isn't much different to standard. The only advantage to what he did would be to give the chain an easier time by not making it bend so much going round the sprockets which would make it last longer.

Yea I at one time knew the stock gearing (triumph rat and tiger triple are my other time wastes lol). I get the science from riding single track on the smaller bikes. I just never messed with it on the tiger till now. With the TOR exhaust and Offroad map, haven't really needed to alter the gearing, it already had a unique grunt; no problem keeping up with the 990 and 950's I regularly ride with.

I was just changing the chain and thought I'd play with it. And am glad I did. At the previous setup, with bags (justified on 90% of my tiger time) I maxed around 135-140 before I encountered a wobble (I think combo of tkc's and wind on the panniers). Could prob have gone higher but not without tire and bike changes. I haven't been able to open her somewhere "legal" since the new gear, we'll see. But honestly spend most of my time on dirt roads and tiny twisters, no need for such triple digits.

I was really shocked at the change from the axle position. There was a perceptible difference in handling from what seemed to be a small consideration. I turned the cams so the dots lined up and axel was as far forward as possible. That's what, maybe an inch difference? I noticed it when leaving my neighborhood on our one lane twisty road almost immediately.
