Back on track.

I will have updated 20/16 hp bump up kit pricing to post up soon. Not selling... It should be something you can source and do locally at your nearest dealer or tune shop. I am told it will be a very simple install.

Focus. I know it's hard but keep on track. The thread is about the Tiger 800XC and things relevant to dialing it in for dirt riding. You know, things like tires, performance, and crash bars…

As to the other. Look me up when you are next in Oregon as I am sure as hell not going down to your pitiful part of the World.

You get called out a lot on different areas of ADV Rider. You love to start shit. And in your mind you are always right! Maybe you should get the hint and change the tone a bit. I am now officially done with this.

I mounted a Heidenau K60 Scout Saturday night. I know a lot of people are starting to run them and are liking the way they perform. I also noticed that the tire has a very stiff sidewall, it was not fun to mount. Has anyone taken advantage of this and been running very low pressure on thier Tiger? I heard one report of running 10 psi and having it perform flawless.

I have the K60 rear. I use 30psi for the street & 22psi for dirtroads. I made the mistake of playing on some gravel with 35psi & it sucked. Once the rear broke loose, I had to stop to regain traction. Just ride like its a 50/50 tire & you'll be fine. If you ride like its a TKC, then you'll get in trouble.

Good. Now can you go back and nuke all your garbage.

I look forward to hearing how long your new tire lasts.

No. I'm satisfied with how it feels at 22. I managed to skirt a mud hole & I just knew the rear was going slide into the deep end, but it held.

And your point is?

The Tiger 800 wasn't around yet at the time I rode my Wee-Strom to Labrador. I replaced the Wee with the Tiger as soon as it became available, but I wasn't going to not ride prior to April of last year.

There's a lot more to making a bike exciting and fun than rear tire destruction.

Now stop being an and getting on everyone's nerves.

The point is: Don't expect as much life from a TKC 80 on the 800XC that you got from the V-Strom. Which is something relevant to this forum.

You guys really need to stop littering the thread up with your bickering. Use the Private message function to bitch and whine.
