    So I got all my factory accessories installed by the dealer, but I forgot to get them to run wires for my GPS while they had tank off... any advice on running wires for Zumo cradle?

    Pull the plastic off the left side and run the wires along the frame. I think I only used two zip ties.

    Ok got the measurements for the Triumph option. They are roughly 3 1/2 by 2 1/4 inches.

    The Motech pegs are cast. The pivot pegz are polished stainless steel - very snazzy!

    This is what I ordered with my new 2013 800 XC...
    arrow exhaust A9600341

    adventure fog light kit A9838003

    center stand A9778005

    sump guard A9708233

    Engine protection bars A9788004

    low gel seat T2304372

    adj. high wind screen A97808248

    City tank bag A9510087

    tank bag harness A9510083

    Alum. Radiator guard A9708234

    headlight protector A9838007

    gps mounting kit A9820001

    aux. power socket A9828005

    My biggest disappointment was the Arrow Exhaust and mapping. The "soundtrack" isn't significantly different, the weight savings isn't that much, and I can't say I notice the extra 3 to 5 extra bhp. A lot of $$$ for so little.

    Everything else listed above has been great additions, in terms of fit, function and appearance.

    Basically the only thing you get for real with the Arrow can is lower mpg. The rest is not even worth looking at.

    What tank bags you put on your Tigers? Besides the Triumph I've seen some pics with Wolfman tank bags on but don't know what models

    I've been wondering what options are out there myself. I have the Engage Sport from Bags Connection that I love, but it's the wrong shape/dimensions for the Tiger's tank. The model that would fit the Tiger, the GS Evo looks flippin' sweet, but its a pretty hefty price tag, especially if you don't have a tank ring already. And you can electrify it too, but by then you're creeping up on $500

    Besides the Wolfman luggage, the Giant Loop bags look pretty nice:the Diablo and larger Fandango. I like the way they can be zipped on and off of their harnesses. I have to wonder though if the zipping on and off thing gets old quickly.

    Blew the fuse on my heated grips last night. Home this isn't a repetitive problem. Gonna get some more spare fuses, just in case.

    I assume they're the factory heated grips? Did you have any other electrical accessories going at the time? I just got done installing mine about 10 minutes ago. Haven't had a chance to try them though.

    I use the Bags Connection Micro but I only keep my phone, wallet, and a few nik naks. I also use the lock ring on the gas cap. Works perfect for me.

    Yeah, I am either going to modify the stock pegs or get the optional Triumph pegs that are larger.
