Yeeeahhh, i got tired around page 320957r32, and started nodding off...
Yea, that was my impression too...
Good thing we tested the structural integrity of my current gear, right! Always test your gear, very important. Except on motorcycles... Send Buster to take care of that.
THANKS! I'll definitely take you up on the tire! It will give me a proper starting point of aggressiveness. I was comforted slightly when your worn out rear was about the same tread as my stockies, so in THEORY, I should have made it look half as good as you did. Didn't happen, but hey, it was only a theory....
+5 on the saw!
Hey, at least that was the one thing I did fairly well, and didn't eat any tree limbs in the fallen tree crossing incident. I thought for sure, you would have noticed your bike not moving forward on account of the limb in your jugs. :huh
Usually it's operator error
Can you give more information like where did you get them and which ones?
Go to The Retrofit Source website and order the Morimoto Elites in 5000k. You won't regret it. http://www.theretrofitsource.com/store.php
I just installed the Uni filter a week back. But when I get to the point of cleaning it, I had a few questions. How often do you clean it? What's the right way to do it? Remove it and dunk it in Turpentine/Gas and then soapy water, then air dry? Thanks in advance for the help.
Clean it when it's dirty. You can tell by looking at it, to see if there is a lot of buildup of dust/dirt on it.
Depending upon what type of filter oil is in use, you may want to select from a range of cleaners.
Take a look at NoToil
Get away from solvents altogether. Great filtering, easy cleaning, easy application.
Here's how UNI do it...
Once I picked up their products at the shop, I could hardly give away the other crap.
Are these good for the Uni Filter - I assume yes but, well, you know how that goes...
I purchased my kit from HID Nation. Be sure you get the smallest ballast that you can. There isn't much room. You don't need the relays and canceler they'll try to sell you. All you need is the Bi-Xenon 9003 High/ Low HID Kits HN-9003 and the slim ballasts. I used a step drill bit to put holes in the bulb access covers in the housing. The wires on the bulb have a grommet that fits in the hole. Once you install the bulbs and run the wiring through the back cover just plug them into the ballast. The trickiest part for me was finding a way to mount the ballast. There isn't much room or wire. I used zip ties to bundle the two ballasts together and used some very heavy duty velcro to stick the ballast bundle under the gauge housing. It works very well and makes it easy to service the lights should the need arise. So far it is working great and I am very pleased. I had a motorcycle cop pull up beside me at a red light. He pointed to my HID's running in the daytime and gave me a thumbs up. So, I guess they approve too.

These are 6000K bulbs so it is about the color temperature of daylight.

It is important that where ever you mount the ballast that they clear the forks when you turn. For this mounting location any ballast that is larger would not work.
I would be doing this if the Tiger had the interior bulb shield and a fairing to hide the electronics. With these reflective housings you're going to blind people with tons of light scatter :eek1
I wouldnt mind (When I have nothing better to do) to implement a Projector setup in the stock housing.
Actually, that isn't the case. According to the inspection station where I had my lights checked (they didn't need adjusting) they passed just fine.
I've never had trouble with my stock lights (+the OEM foglights). My friends usually ask me to ride in front at night cause I have some of the best lights in our group... That or they want me to take the deer out first!
Yes. The NoToil products will work in any foam filter application.
It is so nice being able to avoid petroleum products in the realm of filter maintenance.
Yes. Any foam filter, per the rep.
You might want to check out the whole issue of HID's in "Reflective housings" which creates significant light scatter. Unfortunately the inspection station isnt going to check for that as its not a position/height issue. Drivers coming the opposite way definitely notice. HID's should be used in projector housings safely directing the light output.
Here's what others see, it's even illegal in some countries. Just a heads up
