Forum - and Triumph - newbie...
« on: 31 October, 2018, 09:27:43 PM »
Hi all - longtime Japanese four owner here, after 25 years riding have decided to give something new a try! Finally sick of constantly chasing revs, tingling fingers from vibes, no low-down grunt and awkward riding positions; after testing a Tiger at a dealer a couple of weeks ago I have gone out and bought a 08-plate 1050, loved it straight away and can't wait to pick it up at the weekend. I'll be grateful for any advice on parts to fit (suspension, exhausts, tuning etc.) as well as practical stuff like sat-navs and luggage? The bike I'm picking up has the Triumph side panniers but no top box, anyone know if it's feasible to fit a Givi top box or similar with the panniers?
Cheers

 :405: and  :401: to the Triple,

SW- motech make a plate which fits to the stock grabrail, retaining the pannier mounts then you fit a Givi plate to that,
It is Tiger specific,

colour? miles?

We all eagerly awaiting pics. Good choice so mostly just the obvious service stuff to look out for, hoses, fluids etc. Valve check is supposed to happen every 12k. Never need them that often but possibly worth checking if there are no records.

Oh and you'll need some LED aux lights unless you're locking it in the garage until the clocks change  :001:

Since new to forums,  select forum top left. Note sections. Top of each section is a sticky. Read them all.
You really want to find a thread on new to  you tiger.  Confirm your tune.

From there you will find loads of information.  Dead links or you find something that might be helpful others shout out and I'll get it added.

OH, no pictures. It didn't happen.

I enjoy bike pics as much as the rest. But shouldn't we let him pick it up first?
