    Good looking saddle, did you get it for two up riding? The Queen seat looks more level than stock.

    No, I never ride with a passenger. One reason I like this Corbin, and other newer Corbin designs, is the relatively small pillion section. There's plenty of room for me to move fore and aft, even with the step.

    I'll take a look at this and do some math. It's a good looking rack!

    Thanks for the photo! I think it looks more complete with the beak, but that might be because I have ridding GSs for quite a while and we still have a F650GS thumper in the garage ...

    I'll give it some time and then decide whether I got used to it or whether the optic is still incomplete.

    Thanks :thumb

    I think I have all I need from the Twisted Throttle link. It looks like this is a new plate - I bought mine from Twisted Throttle and I don't think this was available when I got mine. Gives me something to think about.

    I have one of these, with the adapter plate if anyone is interested. Used it with a Hepco box so also have the adapter that screws on.

    I bought the CJRacer rack before I bought my Tiger. Its a beautifully machined and functional piece. The black anodizing still looks great.

    edit: It has spend the majority of its life under a large tail bag.

    Nope. Don't think I want to spend money on something that's already there and works ... :lol3

    What benefit would this have? The arrow comes with a bad mileage map, the others - so far I don't see a gain there, other than slightly lower weight.

    Or, just undo the throttle tube clamp and move the whole assemble inwards slightly.:wink:

    Managed to snag me a very limited Chef Ramsay Edition Tiger!

    [​IMG]

    Comes with built-in cutting board and only available in white to represent "Chef Ramsay's pure, angelic, and motivating way with words" to quote the sales brochure.

    Then I decided, I wasn't going to cook much while riding anyways, so I bolted this thing to it:

    More better! :wink:

    Laid my Tiger 800 down yesterday Very slowly on some dirt . Bars seem to have shifted, I cannot believe they are bent due to the very low speed. I believe they shifted in the top triple clamp. Does anyone know the official torque settings for the triple clamp as I want to try and loosen and straighten. Thanks guys/girls.

    Battery must have enough juice to run the fuel pump and fire the injectors.

    My money is on the starter or starter circuit.

    Probably your clutch safety.
