I just installed the EB 3 circuit kit last week. Pretty simple and the connections are easy to do. Tapped into the tail light to power the relay.
After making my own setup on my Sprint, it ended up being about the same cost and a whole lot cleaner install.
No, it's near Omaha.
The stock heated grips have their own relay. The Eastern Beaver kit was developed specifically for aftermarket grips. I was the guy who first emailed Jim and asked him to build one; how-to writeup on the procedure is here:
There is also one in the center of Kansas somewhere near Hutchinson… I've been there. It's where I learned that the Blackbird dates back to 1959, believe it or not.
That is the exact set up I used too. EB kit with Oxford grips. Half the cost of stock and works great! Jim Davis the owner of EB is legit and his stuff is the highest quality. Shipping from Japan is not bad in terms of price and time. I've used his products on a number of bikes and have never been disappointed.
Hit a deer and broke the right bar end. There is no part mumber for it, so I welded it and it is working fine. Other option was to get a new bar...$100+ for OEM or $125 for black. As well machined as this part is, one would think they'd have a separate part number you could order. Not as of now.
Damn! Hope you're OK. Any major damage to the bike??
Hope you stayed upright... and killed that fooker! I feel your pain, I hit few too, except not on the Tiger.
I've used Jim's products on three bikes now and couldn't be happier with them. Great stuff.
The deer cleaned out everything in front of the forks except the instrument pod and windshield. It was relatively simple to screw on the new plastic parts to make it whole again. Front tire, wheel, brakes and forks all survived without problems. It works perfectly.
I found excellent service from Triumph central warehouse. Parts were here in about three days. Also, they used ample thread locker at the factory. I was impressed.
Nine ribs and some road rash and six weeks of recoop and I'm good. 2k on the bike since rebuild. Lv it.
Excellent. Glad you're all fixed. Could have been a lot worse by the sound of it.
The Kansas Cosmosphere is in Hutchinson....they have a Blackbird in the lobby.
Guys just about to buy one of these but can someone please tell me whats on the dash display ie
Gear position indicator
Does it have a trip computer like the 800GS
What are the service intervals is there a expensive service ie 10k
thanks guys the bike is 200 miles away they will deliver it friday if I say yes now !!
PM me with your email, and I'll send you the Owner's Manual on PDF. That way, you can study it before your bike arrives.
Thanks mate pm sent with email address
To paraphrase the old saying.....Just say yes. And welcome to the Tigers' cage on Friday.
Yup. It doesn't much matter what's on the dash...there's a bunch of shit...just get the bike, you'll love it.
I will admit, I wonder why they omitted an ambient temperature display. The sensor is part of the FI system, why not just throw a number up on the screen?
