    Excel rim...... $300
    Spokes ...... $160

    Apparently the importers have done quite a few Tigers and even more F800's.

    anyone here using the tiger tool to clear faults etc in there bike as am looking at 1 to do the clear up of just ridiculous codes

    just got a fault light /code and $105 a hour to plug a puter up and remove the fault lol at local dealer and have to book in for it
    may be more than a hour also depending on what they find :csm


    have told them its a 5v sensor fault [yep i have the fault code list] and its the 2nd time for it
    nothing wrong the 1st time just a mystery

    Another dealer a bit over a 100k away is going to do it for $20 and just drop in when im passing to fix it [remove the fault code]

    the keep your local dealer /shop going :flip
    saw they just did a trip to the cape on the last lot of suckers going to there stealership for nothing spending there cash

    I had some shed time today. I managed to remove the radiator so that I could access the manifold bolts. It is supposed to be shit weather tomorrow on the SW Vic coast, so maybe I will get the exhaust system out tomorrow while listening to the Couldabeens. So far the Tiger has been pretty easy to work on, other than the plastics near the radiator shrouds. Stupid design IMO; too fiddly and brittle material. I have had to resort to drilling holes and zip ties.

    I went golfing this arvo and broke 100. It should get easier when we are not playing in sloppy mud. Balls are supposed to bounce and roll; not yet here!

    :nah


    besides longer legs (no good for me) the front and rear ends have been lightened, I like the high guard, single disc on both the mod bike and its standard companion. New panel work looks better imo. Other than those things :dunnonothing different than Africa queens did to the AT:deal

    Bit like this, had mine done as was sick of the stock guard breaking..

    Also think I may have found out why the tiger was cutting out, the sidestand switch bypass ust have gotten dirty and even though it was still connected had a drop in voltage so bike thought stand was down.....went for a small 14kms ride and didnt stop so heres hoping

    That looks like a great mod, my OEM guard is broken in about 50 places and the beak is about to fly away

    What guard did you graft on to the bike?

    Looks like inflation has gone crazy at Olivers, they are now $82 for a set of 4

    Was told they were put together for a recall dating back to 2006 and only 4 kits left

    Is this still the best option for broken indicator stalks?

    I v think there would be a market for that bracket. Did you duplicate the brake lines; one each side?

    Did they give you any feedback on the old fork oil and seals.
    How about the gas, was it dirty?

    Dirty gas? The oil would have been contaminated for sure after 2 years use.
