question for you tiggerites: on the xc model - do the fork tubes have preload adjustment? and, setup from the factory, are the tubes fully extended, or is there some variability there?
what size are those tubes, btw?

I have a '12 Tiger 800 XC. the forks are 45mm Showas. They are not adjustable to my knowledge, if someone knows differently I'd love to hear how. I'm not sure I understand the fully extended part of your question. I have measured my travel and I'm getting very close to the 220mm of travel.

2012, year of the Tiger, it is for me.

Buying the bike is only half the fun, the expensive bit starts now, now where's the extras brochure.

Tell us about your cases and other additions. Which ones did you go with what do you think about them and how much did they coast.

Answer to post #209

The additions are as follows...
SW Motech crash bars - My dealer (a trials buddy) said that he's had some customers use these to their full extent and they've done a great job of protecting the bike. That was good enough for me. $225.

Denali D1 lights from Twisted Throttle - These are the cheaper of their lights, but I think they do a great job. I've ridden at night several times with them and they light up the road (and alongside the road) quite well. I'm sure the more powerful ones are even better, however. $250

Triumph alum skid plate - Pretty good coverage and still allows easy access to the oil filter. $220

Triumph Heated grips - Work Great. Holy Cow these things get hot! $200

Triumph Center Stand - This is the newer model. I've had no issues with mine riding off road so far. I think Triumph fixed the loosey-goosey issue. $220

Touratech Radiator Guard - Looks good I think, but does not mount to the existing mounts points what-so-ever as advertised by Touratech. I wouldn't do this again. I think the stock radiator guard is probably good enough. $140

Holan Panniers and Rack - I love these things. The rack fits tight and the workmanship is very good. Mine are 39L and 33L (exhaust side) . Half the price of Touratech Zega. $999 Note: have Holan USA send the mounting instructions. You get a ton of hardware and it certainly helps to see it on paper rather than trying to wing it!

Holan Headlight Grill - Fits nice. Solidly done. I think it'll protect the Light fine. $80

Overall, really like the additions, would do them all again except for the radiator guard, especially the Holan panniers.

Next up, Front Fender Riser kit from Touratech to give my knobs a little breathing room. Then some BarkBusters.
