|I purchased my new Tiger 800XCx in July 2015 - Extras added so far:-
Two of my Extras are show below. I find the clock in the
standard instruments hard to read so I Velcro a cut down
Waterproof Watch to the top yoke.
To charge GPS on the move I purchased a Twin Socket
USB charger which plugs into the Tiger's DIN socket.
My Wunderlich Bar Bag is attached to the bars on my XCx by
Velcro straps. It is not waterproof. Great for storing toll
tickets, toll money, credit cards, camera, wallet, specs etc. I
find it reassuring to have valuable items in plain site. I can
place my phone inside to charge on the move. Easy to
detach when I park up.
I managed to obtain the perfect Registration Number from the
DVLA for my 800 XCx
I have made a Rear Mudflap from an A4 sheet of 4mm
rubber and hung it just in front of the rear tyre to protect the
rear shock. A similar setup worked well on my Explorer. As
a bonus mud cannot stick to the rubber due to flexing.
I fitted must trusty old 30L Top-Box which cost me £15 in 2003. First had to remove the curved OEM plastic rack/
cover, this gave me 4 threaded holes to bolt down to but the two rear holes are at a different height. I built a mount
from 5mm plywood (Double thickness for rear mounts) then bolt down through it. There is a neat little boot space
under the wood. I store my 12v Compressor here accessed when the pillion seat is removed.
Front Fender Extender. I travel many miles in all weathers
fitting one of these really does help keep the engine clean
and protects the Tiger's finish from stone chips.
I have transferred the Headlamp Protector from my Explorer. I bought
this at the NEC show in 2013, it is held on with small Velcro pads. I
remove it if I travel at night. The twin dip/main lights on the Tiger 800 are
as good as car headlamps when night riding.
