    The maintenance manual lists what you have got.

    Sorry, I meant the maintenance manual, which I have, lists the same battery as you have got.

    On Wednesday I will be buying a used 2013 Triumph Tiger. I lucked out and found one in Chattanooga TN. The guy bought it new, put 4901 miles on it and decided to trade it on the explorer. I get it for less than MSRP, and it already has the taller windscreen, panniers, hand guards, and fog lights. I am looking forward to the ride back to Indianapolis, I am stopping by Mammoth Cave Park.

    Stay down there for a few days and carve up the twisties with the new toy.... that's some of the best riding in the world.

    Congrats.

    Thanks, I would love to stay there, but that whole work thing. I have a friend that builds floating docks all around there. I will meet up with him in the future and do plenty of riding down there.

    Skip the cave and go riding. Been there–it's a big cave–but it's not that great.

    I put Rox risers on my Roadie 800. Thinking about raising bars a bit more for more comfort while standing. What are my options? XC+Rox? Will it work? Do I need to change cables/brake line?

    I would love to skip the cave, but it kinda something I have to do. It is a family day and I figure of I am making my wife drive down there, I kinda should do something to make the trip worth it for her. Plus my son loves caves.

    Aha...a man that knows how to invest and that will pay dividends in the future! Family time will be great and you'll still get some awesome riding in. Congrats on getting the XC! You will love it. Our son was stationed not far from Mammoth Cave at Ft. Campbell for awhile. I did get down there to ride but only once. Lots of nice backroads for you to discover. Have a great time and get dirty!:clap

    Right on thanks, and I it is the roadie I am getting. Just has the add-ons to look like the XC.

    I bought some bars from an Explorer 1200 and was able to take the ROX risers off. The Explorer bars are a little wider than the stock XC bars and have about 1.5" more sweep. They are a lot better than the xc bars. But if you still want the xc bars, i'll make you a deal on the one's I took off my Xc.

    Good for you! I did the same thing last year on a 2012 XC w/500+ miles on it. Actually bought it from a Park Ranger at Mammoth Cave NP! Say hi to Jed for me! Tell him I'm lovin' the bike!
