Hi Tigermike.  It seems to be about as close to mint as a 9/10 year old bike could be.  It's the black and grey colour scheme, has done 6,000 miles and only one previous owner.  New gold chain and sprockets, and new Michelin PR5s just before I bought it.  It has 12v and USB sockets all over, and an MRA screen with the flip top.  It does seem to run a little hot in traffic (well documented on this forum I see) but fan cuts in as it should.  Will be doing the coolant flush and refresh caps etc. very soon. 
Overall I could not be more pleased with the bike.  Will post pics as soon as I can.
wow thats a lovely clean mint bike, same as mine apart from the stock can, engine bars & mines done 60k more & shes filthy at the moment  :004:

Hi Mike, what can do you have?  A more fruity sound would be nice, and the standard one is not the best looker imho.

hi Privateer, i have an SC Project which i bought last year after some dopey sod shunted me at a petrol station & ruined my Arrow endcan.

this is what mine looks like -(Not my bike) but yes its got a lovely fruity sound especially with the airbox mod & Dave73's V2 map loaded  :152:

That looks really nice Mike.  Can you still fit the panniers over it, and is it compatible with the centre stand?  Dopey questions but I'm new to Tiger ownership!

Yes, it's the same size as the arrow it replaced,  yes it has a centre stand bump stop and panniers fit great.

When I see the stock & SC cans like that, makes the stock look like a big kitchen bin.

'Ow much for the SC can? And does it require a re-tune on the TS?

mine was 360 plus I think 15 shipping from the factory in Italy,  took about 7 weeks to come as they make them to order, the one for the 13 to 15 sport is 390, comes in 3 finishes  and high or low mount. Not sure about the remap, I know there are only a few maps for your model.
I'm sure someone else will be able to answer that part. 👍🍻
