Bits to change
« on: 22 May, 2020, 05:23:32 PM »
Afternoon everyone. So Ive had my bike only a couple days and already I need to change some parts. I love the bike, its a 2014 TS. Theres a Powerbronze tall screen on it, but the buffeting I get is awful, so Im thinking mra vario, do you guys rate them? Also the gear lever feels too short, I could do with it sticking out half inch more, is there such a thing?  Also the spotlights could do with replacing for better ones. Any suggestions greatly appreciated

Mra vario is probably best option as it's multi adjustable, other than buying and selling numerous screens,
Is the gear lever "peg" riveted in or screwed in, could just do with a longer "peg" if screwed<
can't comment on the lights

I needed a longer gear lever when I changed from Sidi to TCX boots which were thicker on the toe.
I got a Palmers gear lever which is fully adjustable for movement and length.

Palmer gear lever does what it needs to do very well.  Very strongly built and just the thing for riding in heavy boots.

Thank you for the replies guys.
Mra screen looks like the preferred option for a lot of people so Im going to try that, and the Palmer gear lever, although it does look meccano ish.

Screens are a fickle thing, what works for one person doesn't necessarily work for another, even people of similar height.
I have never suffered the buffeting many complain of, but the noise for me was horrendous. The short PowerBronze screen solves that but gets you wet.

Crikey now youve thrown a spanner in the works lol. I thought the mra would solve everything?! I think if its raining youre gonna get wet no matter what. Maybe a short screen would work, I dont mind the wind hitting my chest and it would be quieter than present. Might try getting hold of a 2nd hand original and start from scratch.

The noise is a big issue for most, yes it varies from rider to rider and also the perception of noise differs for different people a bit like vibes
but it is there, for me even with no screen it became an issue and was one of the reasons the Tiger had to go,
seems to be a bigger issue if you are short/short in the body (like me) as you can't then get out of the dirty air which comes round the side of the fairing
