How much do you want for them Tim ?

Dunno, Sean has first dibs on them if his order doesnt come through. Cant remember what I paid now, think it was similar to what theyve been on for again. The KTM has been expensive lately :007:

Much appreciated Tim  :028:. Mine landed safely today. Won't have time to fit till I'm back from my jollies but feel free to let it go to the highest bidder  :047:

Back after my little break in (mostly) sunny Nassau.

Yep - fitted fine. Easy enough even for a mechanical moron like myself  :028:

Damn - should have read all the way through the instructions first.

Found this on the last page so I'm afraid they will have to come off  :745:
Never  ride  an  accessory-equipped  motorcycle  at speeds above 80 mph (130 km/h). The presence of accessories will cause changes in the stability and handling of the motorcycle. Failure to allow for changes in motorcycle stability may lead to loss of control or an accident.

Had the same warning on the fitting instructions for my new Triumph power socket.  :087: Obviously Triumph accessories refresh the parts that other mods can't reach .... !

I do agree with them if you install luggage and other stuff. I also have the impression the Puig touring screen has an influence on stability above 100 MPH Autobahn rides.
I never drove the TS without dresser bars, so I can't judge that part  :745:.
I still have to post my turbulent experience with the Powerbronze shorty on the TS and my test drive with the illustrious KTM 1290 SAS S last Friday.
Spoiler: The KTM needs another screen if you're 6'3" or more....., just like the TS...

All the best,

RM

Can't say I've noticed that  :164:
It does seem to be affected more by very high cross winds but those are always unpleasant.

Hi Seangee,

high crosswinds are indeed terrible to deal with and when trailing a white van driver or a larger lorry, I also have a tremendous amount of turbulence.
I think the mounts of the Tiger Sport should be higher, so there would be less flex in the (higher) screen, but I haven't found someone yet who's willing to build a larger suspension system.
Since I haven't bought a peaked helmet yet, I also cannot rule out it's my helmet. All peaked helmets are heavy, especially the modular ones and I really love my 1350 gram AGV Sportmodular and Lazer Monaco Evo (both L sized).
But enough off topic. I think the dresser bars won't be an issue and that your right hand will definitely play a bigger role in the stability of your TS  :008:.
Then again, at 110 MPH and more, I get a serious judder in the handlebars, even without luggage. Maybe I should remove the dresser bars to see if it makes any difference  :084:.
With topbox, it starts a lot sooner, around 85 MPH...

All the best,

RM
