i do like good headlights in general and i have been known to be out after dark. I'm looking at some of the LED options.

I haven't been to your neck of the woods, but would love to some day. Post pics so I can start travel planning!

Glad you've got a good one, check the stickies to see that you get the common problems taken care of before they become problems. And a 2007 you say? Don't search "crankus interruptus".... Ignorance is bliss! But do check which tune you are running.


Now you've let the cat out of the bag.  :745: You know he's going to look it up now. I have to say I wish I had come across that thread 30k miles ago.
It couldn't hurt to give her a leak down test next time you're in there to replace the plugs, just to be on the safe side.

Oh and  :405: from a former Orgonian. Spent 11 years fishing out of Newport back in the 90's. Wish I'd had my Tiger back then. At that age I likely wouldn't have kept my DL very long.

Prepare yourself for some information overload.

Enjoy   :031:

i'm still having issues with pics, the gallery will not accept my user name and password? not sure where to go from there.. I have been looking at some of the common issues with the tiger listed on this forum. If you had to pick things to address what list of priority would you have?

What kind of budget do you have, and how much previous ownership history do you have?    The "now you've bought aTiger" sticky should be a checklist for the maintenance and fluid items. 

LED lights and spending the time to adjust them were a big improvement for me. Tiger Sport headlights can be retrofitted but it's not cheap. But better than stock with LED.  Just make sure the LED you install is short enough to fit inside the dust cover. 35mm max IIRC.

Air box mod, block off SAI, BMC air filter and Dave73 tune were a big improvemnt as well.

The biggest difference maker for me was respringing and revalving the front forks and replacing the rear shock with an Ohlins.  Absolutely transformed the bike.  It's not cheap, but hands down the best investment I've made in the Tiger yet.

YMMV.  :031:

Gold indeed! I wanted a black one but I happened on this one for a very good price. Low miles ,dealer maintenance regularly all around well cared for.Still getting used to riding it and sorting the suspension to my liking . Absolutely love the motor. :005: :152:

Uncorked, a little air box and cat work along with a new tune.    You would love the roaring cat even more.

A tidy early example, way better than black, plenty of cans out there high or low then as indy said open the airbox add a filter load a tune
