Just go to and after selecting Triumph it will have you select the model, the 1050 Tiger is not listed with the other Tigers, keep scrolling down to after the Sprint and there are choices for rear spring, front springs and full kits.
'07 Tiger Scorched Yellow non-ABS
K&N filter, snorkle removed, TOR'd stock pipe
Triumph hand guards, SW Motech engine guards, Driving lights, Givi Simply II trunk w/lights, Givi V35 panniers w/custom mounts
Ohlins shock, RT.90 Fork springs

I hate to be that guy but could we maybe have some maintenance performed on this sticky? a lot of the external links are either incorrect or dead.

At the bottom of every sticky is a request to PM me.
I asked that the bad link be reported.  To date NO one has, and this post doesn't say what's off.

I guess I can spend hours going over every sticky and try every link, sure would be helpful if other members would lend a hand and help a guy out


So Spent an hour checking out all the links. Found the Wilber tiger link gone so now just looking at main site.
Two other links were flat dead, the sites are gone. Not much I can do about that.

If there is anything else wrong PM me, with a copy of the dead link so I have some idea what to look for.
