SW Motech Bars

Mounted when I purchased the bike. They are scuffed from previous owner drops. (Don't buy your daughter a Tiger for her first bike).  :112:

Mounting bolts included, but I do NOT have instructions.  Bit of a jig saw puzzle, but very doable.

$100, plus shipping. USA.

I should add, off my 2010 Tiger

PM for more info....pics

handguards look like they've done their job  :008:

An observation, chain is way too tight, generally slack should be 40-45mm makes gearchange and engine run smoother  :028:
minor downside is a bit of chain slap on a trailing throttle

Morning All!

Been looking for a new bike for a while and eventually settled on an 09 Tiger.

As of yesterday this now belongs to me.

Needs some a little tidy up in places but otherwise all good!

I took the bike out for an Iron Butt Association 1600km/1000mile ride a few weeks ago with just a jerry can to test its ability for a longer ride. It passed the test so I'm planning a longer ride.

Today I finally fitted up the auxiliary fuel cell to my Tiger so it now has 38 litres on tap. :




In the mean time I picked up a few extra bikes.

A current model Goldwing so my wife is comfy on the back seat:



A 2014 Honda Valkyrie to ride around on:



And just last week something very different for me, a 2010 Can-Am Spyder. A mate and I are planning doing some Iron Butt Association rides on it this year:

Can I ask, what is that on the seat, a cover or standard?

Airflow seat cover.
Works as advertised, but the fit and customer service was terrible.
I ended up fitting it like a regular cover, ie with a stapler.

Pic of the cover before attempting to fit

fitted a Protec adjustable lowering link. dropped it 45mm I think. Because I forgot to measure the height before I started (too exited ). dropped the front by 21mm. Bike feels good better balanced a little firmer to tip in. have to go for a long ride to determine the changes but initial feeling, it is an improvement, I can get both feet on the ground now, I am 5'8"
