pretty sure thats it.
That's what I found. I have the stock lever as the spare. I just bought a swaging tool and some 1/16" cable and will make safety loops for break and shift levers. If you're localish, you can borrow it to make your own.
This is how I try to explain it for querries on 'what to buy' for an adventure bike. Most think I'm just nuts I reckon.
SWmotech do an adjustable one. http://shop.sw-motech.com/cgi-bin/c...products.ergonomie.1353579745&typid=101561504
But at that price I went for a Touratech one and keep the OE as a spare.
The 950 is still apart in my shop since a minor maintenance item became the catalyst which added "the straw that broke the camel's back."
My wife wanted to go riding, again, and I didn't have a ride, again. This prompted me to do a little follow-up research on the Tiger, having looked at it when shopping for the KTM a couple years prior. After confirming what I remembered, I went to the dealer the following day and bought one off the floor.
Then I broke my leg riding my DRZ the following week (after putting 1000 miles on the Tiger), and the KTM is still sitting there almost four months later, patiently waiting on me to reassemble it, clean it up and list it for sale. But I've been spending all my spare time on the Tiger instead of finishing up that work. Maybe this weekend . . .
The KTM is an exemplary machine. In my experience it is for someone who has a nice shop and several bikes. The guy I bought it from was like that and it served him well on a couple of Baja trips and a Continental Divide ride.
Wild@Heart makes a very nice adjustable one.
Cool stuff. I checked out their prices and went wow!
Then I checked the Dollar to Rand exchange rate (1:10) and it's not such a bad deal now.
I bought a couple items from them:
Side Stand Foot
The prices are not bad at all for the quality, but the shipping is not super cheap. I plan on getting the adjustable shifter from them next to accommodate my big feet. I keep shifting up accidentally when I'm standing up off road...
Does that foot work with a center stand? I bought one from Touratech that doesn't.
Yep, works perfect. It also has a big contact area which helps spread the weight of the Tiger on loose stuff...
Thanks. I've been tired of finding a piece of bark to spread out the weight of my side stand.
The Altrider sidestand foot also works with the center stand.
Here is a reminder that a UNI prefilter is not a bad idea. I would guess that at least 6'000 miles were dirt/gravel roads.
Does the AltRider foot work on the 2013 Tiger? I heard someone saying they were having trouble making it work, thinking Triumph may have changed the sidestand design this year.
I've yet to purchase one, and have been using a flattened soda can when parking on soft/loose surfaces.
I've no idea, mine is 2011 and no fitment problems at all.
Photo? I'll compare to my 2013 and see if there's a difference.
What center stand have you got? The manufacturer states "not compatible with Hepco Becker".
I can confirm the AltRider foot works perfectly fine on a 2013 Tiger 800 (road version). No interference issues at all.
Just had my 6000 mile service done and asked about the condition of the air filter. I have been on some dusty roads, but I'm often leading the ride or sweeping, in which case I stay far enough back not to be in dust too bad...
Ends up they never looked at filter at 6000 mile service. So he said if I was worried, he'd check on it for me when they get my new turn signals in for the recall...
Just so you know...It's labor intensive.
I found a really good youtube video showing how to remove the plastics, tank and filter.
