Far as I know they're the same bracket.
Is there a preferred brake pad for the front? I need to buy new ones soon. I'd make the assumption EBC's are the way to go but aren't there different 'levels' of pad?
I also don't see much availability from the usual places.
it'll work, they're all the same.
my madstad was the only thing that couldn't transfer over from my 2013 XC to my 2018 XRT.
exhaust, jesse bags, BRE rear rack, Corbin seat, foot pegs, kickstand foot and rox risers all moved over.
EBC has the HH series sintered, FA series organic & the V series semi-sintered if i remember correctly.
I use the HH sintered for my rear which was way better than the original Nissin pads.
As for the front i also have the HH pads for the front but not installed yet.
I believe I used the sintered HH like the below. Good feel like stock or better.
There's some debate about pad type and feel, particularly if you ride in alot of wet weather or muddy offroad.
Have you measured what's left on the OEM pads. I swapped mine to see if the feel would change after >30k miles. I was surprised to see how little they had worn, but I'm not a heavy brake user.
I've used the sintered HH pads for 8 years now with good results.
HH pads allround, although in my case I prefer DP501 (front) DP115 (rear) DP = Dunlop
TKC 80’s are rated max load at 35psi.
I had Heed crash bars on my 2012 tiger when I got hit this spring. They served their purpose well. I have been struggling with what to use on my replacement bike (2015 XCx). Due to the pandemic as some will know Heed has not been able to ship to the US. I was just about to pull the trigger on H&B Uppers. I got an email from Heed this morning that they are once again shipping to the US. Just sayin.

Outback Motortek is also another great option.
I just wanted to share that the Tiger 800 is an absolute pleasure on the race track:
I might need new boot soles from all the foot peg scraping.
They're great on the street too...
Replaced worn out chain and sprockets on mine yesterday with Triumph OEM. Found out the PO had installed a 15T sprocket; OEM is 16T. Not sure yet if happy or sad. Less snappy but gears seem more useful and imagine MPG on the highway will increase.
I have a 2015 XRX for sale in the FM if any of you Tiger riders know of someone who wants to up grade or join the flock.
I am considering selling my 2013 Tiger 800 ABS. I ride my DR650 much more than I anticipated. I live in rural upstate NY. A tick over 24, 000 on it and just had valves checked. All within compliance. Had plugs replaced. How much to ask and more important, talk me out of it. Lol
Does anyone know if the Triumph brand 30mm bar risers will work on a 2019 XCA without cable or switch wiring problems? Thanks, Robert
Though not directly responsive, I recently installed SW Motech 20mm risers on my '18 XCA with no problems. I don't think an extra 10mm will be a problem.
Thank you, I am leery of trying the 2" Rox ones. I think I will gamble on these 30s from Triumph. Been burned before by Revzilla on returning risers with opened package.
I have the SW 20mm risers and the XC risers on my 11 roadie. That's 50mm without issue (2" for you imperial measurement types)
I have 3 1/2 " Rox risers on my 15 XRX with no problem.
