Quoted for posterity...
I did that ride a few years ago on my XR and it was handful. Of course, it doesn't help that I'm no Knighter...
My body just can't take that anymore...
That is why I am building TWO off Road BAJA Tigers. ( and ONLY two )
Everything I am doing can be had by anyone!!
These are Duel -Sport / Adventure Bikes NOT Enduro bikes
Stay Tuned !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I know I can do it up nice, but my wallet says no.
Hope you have some affordable options you review too.
My body can't either, but try telling that to my mind, what is about bikes that makes me think I am 21 again lol
I will have a NEW GPR Stabilizer on the Baja Tigers .
Pics coming soon.
I also have the NEW RALLY Raid rear tank and Bash gaurd on both bikes.
they are on there web site now !!!
I'm waiting for the RR luggage/side racks...
Hopefully RR won't take too much longer. I really need to purchase a set of something soon. I've been holding out to see what they come out with.
So... Who wants to build a woods Tiger?
Now THAT would be interesting. Maybe Destry will beta-test.

I'm working on it slowly. Maybe we should start a new thread for woods riders. Here is a video of Saturdays ride. I can tell you the upgrade skid plate from Triumph is not sufficient and poorly thought out at best for the woods. Luckily Auto Zone had an oil filter for it because the nearest Triumph dealer was hundreds of miles away and I would even want to think what the tow out would have been like.
As you've found out the oil filter is a standard type oil filter - my Frontier uses the exact same filter (which worries me a little since it has a lot more oil to filter etc.).
With a 15 tooth, the right springs and a stabilizer, totally doable. We bought three 2013 Tigers in August 2013, and spent the riding months last year getting things prepped. Ride a lot of 4 wheeler trails here in the north, and the Tiger does fine, as it's very nimble while standing.
We are currently working on deciding on the right tire for the woods/street. Heidenau on two of our Tigers and Pirelli Scorpion Rally on the third. Right now, the Heidenau with the center cut out like the old Heidenau looks to be the better choice for longevity/traction, but the jury is still out.
We are all former National Hare & Hound and ISDE racers, so we've setup bikes for years for both woods and desert. Can't wait to see that GPR mount on BajaDad's Tiger. We all still have our Scott's dampeners from former dirt bikes, so hate to swap over to a GPR. Hoping the mount is adaptable to the Scotts.
The Mitas E07 is a Heidenau without the center strip. Yeah you have to order it from Canada right now, but it works.
A Scotts dampener will not work !!
this is a GPR ret up only SORRY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Don't worry, we at Rally-Raid Products are nearly finished our Scotts mount for Tiger 800 & XC
That's good to know!
I just received the RALLY Raid Products UK
Billet shifter and Rear Brake pedal !!!!
They also sent me a pair of awesome Foot pegs !!!!
I will post a few pic later tonight !!!
Three weeks to go before the Mex1000...
