I have a 2010 Tiger 1050.
It's winter here in Scotland, whilst ice is on the roads the bike is on my workshop bench as I do some servicing tasks.
One such task I'm doing is to strip the suspension linkage bolts, so I can wash and re-grease the needle roller bearings in the suspension linkage. It struck me that if there was some sort of barrier between the rear wheel and the suspension linkage, the corrosion and damage caused by road spray thrown forward by the rearwheel would be much reduced.
I have my ideas for how to fabricate such a "mud flap", has anyone else done it? I'd be interested to hear how others have done it.
Second question: is there truth in the rumour I have heard that older Tiger 900s had grease nipples on the suspension linkages?
