I can't seem to be able to log in once I click the add attachment/image button. I will figure it out haha.

Had a Honda vfr before on an 01 so pre vtec and I loved it but couldn't ride it for long as I'm getting old and ache like mad so iv always liked the tiger and one came up at a great price and fairly local so couldn't resist.

Thanks for the warm welcome

It's in orange not sure what it's called tho and I need to find a colour code at some point the luggage could do with a respray.
It's on 24k and really rides nice but is much louder than my vfr because of the remus exhaust. Iv been reading up on the mapping in here as it pops and bangs lots.

It's got a few extra...
Denali led spots
Really thick sump gaurd
Caliper guards

All in all for an 11 year old bike it looks like new.

Something I haven't seen on here yet is an adjustable length gear lever? Iv got big feet and would like to have adjustment to find the sweet spot

There's some forum discussion and pictures here:

I don't think Jack be Quick are still in business, but the alternative, Palmer Products:

should still be available.

Or you could try the SW Motech one, good quality but a bit expensive.  :152:

I have the Palmer. Best mod I have done.
