Just fitted a few things to my baby. Still have to put a switched relay system in for the power, got some bits arriving soon.

Before: Always start with a clean bike.





New MRA Vario Touring Screen
Garmin Zumo 340 GPS plumbed in.
R&G Rear Hugger
2amp USB Charge Ports

The USB powers - round thing on the handle bars


GPS Mounted with Ram mounts and bolted to the Tiger's cluster plate


Heat Shielded with the ducting, and run under the tank. Had to extend both the GPS and the USB Ports cabling.


Finished mount, with base of windscreen.


Its a bit tight on the GPS brackets with the touring screen.

Finished:

just wanted to weigh in on the Leo can / arrow tune discussion.....

I have a 2013 tiger 800 abs roadie with a Leo carbon slip on with the baffle in.
initially had the baffle out but it is retarded loud and I own a ducati 1199 with termi exhaust. that is loud but the tiger wide open made me want to tear off my skin and run away to the mountains. way too loud.

anyways, the bike came with the 20634 map. I ran the Leo can with the 20652 and then the 20650 (arrow map). the bike runs way better with the arrow map and does not exhibit any loss in mpg.

however, I copied all the spark timing tables over from 20652 because 20650 has like way lower timing man.....probably why people get terrible mileage from it.

so what works perfect is the arrow tune with the stock timing values, IMO. also, I run it with premium so there should be no issue with preignition plus it is 100 degrees here. when I have some time I will properly calibrate the fuel and timing maps, which will probably be never.

give it a try.

calling all sparky types

Hi guys, I am after some pointers.

I want to fit some additional lights up front of my 800 XC. Only because I have the Hepco and Becker upper tank bars and they are pre-drilled to accept lights of some sort.
I have a pair of small lights. Made my the company Ring, they are called Micro Cruise lights.
The look the same as the once sold by Hepco and Becker to compliment the bars but these were a lot cheaper....

I want to wire them into the bike main beam circuit, but I don't want an additional switch anywhere (I have enough crap bolted to the bars as it is) I cant see any reason where I have main beam selected, but don't want that much light?

Anyway I don't want to chop or solder any wires. I want to find an original OEM wiring break point and plug a home made loom in-line, which I can use to throw a relay to power the lights.

My question is,
Has anyone identified a plug and socket that main beam power (or signal) travels through?
What type of connectors are they? I will have to buy a male and female.

or is it up to me to track this down, I guess I need to dig around under the tank?
I didn't want to have to lift the tank, just to find out which parts to order, then have to remove the tank again to fit them.

I see you have the Zumo mounted centrally. What are the plans for the Triumph left hand mirror mounted sat-nav bracket? is it going spare? is it going cheap? I have been trying to keep my eye out for one on ebay...

Cabriolet, I bought all the parts for the OEM foglights - minus the foglights themselves. Wiring harness, relay, switch. Have ADVMonster model 60 LEDs on SWMotech light brackets. My wiring connectors that plug into the OEM harness (ordered from the UK) will hopefully arrive today or tomorrow and I'll post pictures.

I'm a little confused about whether to pull it off or keep it. If I was keeping it, I'd mount a holder for my phone. Will get back to you on that.

Ok, I got my ADVMonsters installed on SWMotech mounts with the OEM harness.

I'll get some more pictures tonight. Holy fffuuu these things are bright.














Also - anybody know where I can get a 1:18 scale LeoVince Carbon?

Izzat a model 44 or 60? Running or high beam? Bother oncoming traffic? How is side illumination?

As you can tell I'm looking for lights... Looking for running lights that light up the side of the road. Most think the Triumph ones are good, I'm leaning there but want to look at the options.

60s. They're on the OEM fog light switch so they don't come on automatically.



They will likely blind oncoming traffic, I will use them in conjunction with high beams. I ride lots of dark mountain roads with little traffic.

They are a wide beam, not spot - so they should illuminate the side quite well. Stay tuned for some pictures once sunset hits here in California tonight :).

Also thought I'd like to mention that this Bike Master tire repair kit ($32 on Amazon) fits snugly under the pillion seat. For tube and tubeless tires (includes "sticky rope" and tube patches) along with CO2 cartridges.

Consider getting a 12V pump as well. You'll be lucky if the 4 carts fill up a rear tire. They can be fiddly.

In my experience 3-4 will easily get you to ~15PSI, enough to slowly limp to more air.
