Tiger, Tiger Burning Bright
« on: 31 May, 2020, 12:19:28 AM »


So far, on my 08, I have added Vortex levers, a Delkevic can (very light weight and nice sound), a brake light modulator, new tires and a service. Still to come the Palmer windshield mod, a gear shifter I can get my foot under, and a HealTech gear indicator, maybe some bling. Loving the bike, though it took awhile to grow on me.

Somewhere in there I also removed the pointless saddlebags and mount, painted the barn, built a chicken coop, and started on firewood for next season.

Nice mod's.  Did you do the air box mod's. Change the tune?

I do like the headlight modulator.  Half the people pull over and let me pass.
My guess, they think I'm a cop.  Works for me, saves needing to pass many times.

I haven't done the airbox mod nor change the tune. I'll put them on the list!

Respring and revalve forks.  New shock.   Dave73 tune.  Mirrors off an Aprilia Shiver 750, found on eBay.    :028:

Best things I've done.   :031:
