Here ya go Doofenshmirtz. Don't know what happened to your foot peg thread, but here's my solution. Cost me $20 for the extensions plus I threw my welder buddy some cash. These work great.

Wolfman Tank bag

I got my tiger for 2 weeks now and so far I love it.

2012-11-11_14-12-09_463

Now I need a tank bag at least to carry small stuff. I have a Wolfman Denali that I use on my 650gs and I,ve seen someone here using a Wolfman Rainier on his XC, witch is the newer version of Denali. Now I need another set of mounting harnesses. I have a trashed Wolfman saddlebag laying around, cut all the straps, buckles and made myself another set of harnesses. The tank bag fits really nice and tight.

Now if I want to fill up, I don't have to take it off the bike, just loosen up the front buckles , pull it back and expose the gas cap. Tested it and works great.

Check where the heated grips wires thread through the bars. I managed to pinch the wire on the clutch side when I adjusted the position of the clutch lever bracket. When I tightened it down - it pinched the wire causing it to intermittently blow the fuse.

New levers

Dr. Doofenshmirtz and I were working on bikes this weekend and we were talking about crap OEM handguards and broken levers. I showed him my collapsible levers and he suggested I post them here under farkles. These are the ones I went with :

http://shop.the2wheels.com/CNC-Foldi...et-Triumph.htm



They bend upward during a drop and can be extended out, I thought they would collapse down to a two finger grip but fully collapsed they are still a four finger grab. My only real complaint was that the bolts started backing out after a few miles. I got a couple of new bolts and used loctite on all the rest and they have been great for the past 4000 miles.

^^^^Hmmmm. Pretty cheap compared to some levers. Might have to try them just because. Do they fit with the OEM hand guards or do you leave them in the "collapsed position"?

They fit in the collapsed position with OEM handguards. I think you can extend them about halfway out before they start to hit.

I have them and i think the right one is warmer. I figured the left one did not get as hot since the heat was sinking into the handle bar and the right one was hotter since the throttle tube can build up more heat since it is not in good contact with the bar.

My right guard was not working. The lead shorted, blew the fuse and when I replaced the fuse, only the left was working. Dealer found problem and ordered me a new set... a week and a half ago... still not here.
