21" front

Stretch has anyone tried a 21" front with your ingenious fender or can I be first.

Is it just me, or is anyone else noticing a sudden flurry of awesome off road fuelies being built up?

Makin' me freakin' want one, that's all it's doing...

None of the cats I have built kits for are running 21-inch front wheels.

Have at it.

Mudhen, I know I've certainly been guilty of it lately.

Kindly stop posting pics of the damned high fenders. I'm in no position to buy one.

Ya, it should be like over in the racing forum. Before you post a race result you warn everyone to not look. Just simple courtesy, that's all.

Kinda like that, yeah...

I got the 12k service coming up, so even if we do most and take'er in for the valves it's going to cost a bit, and after the last trip, a centerstand is really, really high on my priority list.

You be the first, then post all the part numbers, etc.

My ride this weekend made be wonder about putting a full WP (i.e. 950SE)suspension on the Tigger - Stretch - you feel like putting together kits? The 21" Excel rim would be easy then.

As soon as I get a buyer for my KTM () - I will be getting a fender kit. DireWife likes it better, and I have to keep the Missus happy.

This bike keeps getting better and better.

Easy there...don't go jumping to any conclusions, I'm just sayin', that's all.

I'd love a fuelie, but what I really need is a bike that's as easy and enjoyable off road as my Scrambler, with the wind protection and power of my Steamer. Yesterday (riding the Scrambler because I'm just getting my Steamer back together after doing the valves) it was 30f for my commute and it was comparable to low teens on the Tiger. My heated gear was absolutely no match for that naked bike.

Where the f'k is the 675 Tiger when you need it???????????? My local dealer is just back from the convention and said nothing was mentioned about any sort of 'cub'...

Where is the 675?

Good question. Even if it does turn out to be "son of roadie" the light weight could make it viable offroad.

In the meantime, keep modding those steamer and roadies!

Cheers

If the 675 is anything like the 1050 - I ain't interested. The 1050 is going down a more paved road, and I'd rather be able to take the two-track on the left on occasion
