And if it was a *mw you can keep warm at night as the final drive burns away
At least with a BMW, I don't get cold feet either
A saving grace, given all the Triumph and KTM riders will get to the next cafe before their feet get cold in the first place
Suzuki riders can afford extra pairs of socks....just sayin
I guess I asked for that. See you in six weeks then, I’ve got three of them.
Don't hassle us Suzuki Riders! You will get roosted!
Can Suzuki's Roost... I thought it was KTMs that did all the roosting?
Been meaning to change the Tigers gear lever, it has a fixed tip so it grabs the ground and folds the lever into an unuseable pretzel shape DAMHIK.
There aint a lot of options though. SW Motech do one for a mere $240.00
The other option is to buy a $15.00 lever from TM and head to the shed....
Should work fine but will likely swap the fixing bolts for countersunk jobbies so they're out of the way.
Suzuki gear lever $15.00
5mm Tap - 18.00
Total = way cheaper than the alternative
Nothing like a bit of kiwi cunning
The finished product
The way it should have come from Triumph!!
The one on the new 900 Rally Pro prolly looks just like that!!
Good skills though. Nice to know it took a bit of Suzuki to perfect your Trumpy :)
It's gradually morphing into a Suzi ..... RM Shifter and DR front guard
Gradually increasing reliability?
As a matter of fact the Tiger has been the most reliable bike I've owned...hope the Asian bling doesn't jinx it
Oops! Where did that come from?
Hmmm... Pukeokahu me thinks...
Sign is a bit of a give-away...
you got me into ''must find out' mode... The Rally Pro has both folding gear lever and brake pedal (tip) - info from a bloke who owns one.
I think I'd actually prefer one over a 790 after owning the Tiger. More sedate off road but better on it.....suits my old broken body more...its more about comfort these days
also... the folding brake pedal rotates 180 and raises the pedal slightly for stand up riding.
The 790 pedal does the same, but it's not folding. 790R suspension is very harsh initially, exacerbated for me by a rear shock that is over-sprung OOTB.
$$-wise the Tigger offers more bang for the buck, especially the Pro which includes a lot of stuff that's a cost-extra on the 790. It certainly seems to be a significant upgrade over the earlier iteration in terms of riding dynamics. But not enough to sway me away from the 790... maybe next time!
