    And they can be used together for the best feeling.

    Or the ones from inmate Corrado113:

    Scroll down a bit for the wind deflectors.

    Who makes the best radiator guard? Is the OEM Triumph one okay or are any of the others any better / cheaper? Some of them look really thin in the pics. anyone had a good ding or rock hit on the radiator?

    (Still evaluating what net farkle will be!) :lol3

    why put another rad guard than stock XC honeycomb plastic? It is more rigid than those thin metal panels and not any less protective...IMO

    +1 the factory guard works well. Put your money toward risers.

    I'm about to take delivery on an 800XC and have a question for current owners on tank bags. Aerostich is having a sale today (12/12 sale) and I'd been looking at the Ortlieb Waterproof tank bag. Was comparing it to the Wolfman small expedition and curious if anyone has opinions on either. Specifically, easy of removal for fueling and whether either fits better on an XC.

    Thanks in advance for any comments. :clap

    Then I guess I'm on to figuring out which riders I need and possibly ordering a 15T sprocket! And a headlight guard, and some luggage, and , and, and....

    Tried to order the factory front mud guard on line and waiting for the email that it is no longer available....

    I guess the rear mud guard kit has gone the way of the dodo bird also? I see TerrorATech makes an aluminum one... Anyone tried it?

    I have it and it works great. It was easy to install. It was originally made for the European tags so it is a bit larger than others but it serves its purpose.

    I just installed the new Bags Connection City Bag on my 800XC and it is a perfect fit, well made and looks great. Got it at Twisted Throttle. :D

    Rox risers are good, Rocky Mtn ATv has a good price on them.

    Thanks for that! Bit more integrated than I expected. Since I plan to switch over to the madstad windscreen I might do that first then look at repositioning the gps. I've finally decided to go for some rox risers as well, so we'll see where everything ends up after all those shenannigans.


    On an unrelated note, has anyone here installed the Tiger Safari Tank? Thoughts?

    A proud new 2012 XC owner here. Has anyone installed headlight and/or brake modulators?

    I had both on my wee before its premature demise at the hand of an inattentive lady in a 740LE, and they helped a lot to make myself more visible..

    I have the auxiliary brake light (flashing) unit that inmate pilot3 builds; it works very well and is pretty much plug-and-play.

    Modulating headlights hypnotize oncoming drivers and draw them in like moths to a light bulb... I'll never run one, but to each his own...

    Why not just run Hyper Lights on back?
