Triumph Tiger 800 - Extras 2

I bought some 50mm plastic bar and some 8mm studding to fabricate my own Crash Bungs for the front and rear wheels.  An hour or two working a lathe
is perfect relaxation for an HR Director.  Great fun and very rewarding.  The rear Crash Bungs also serve to ensure the wheel nut stays tight.  Years ago I
had a wheel nut fall off my XR600 on an MX track, not nice.
I fitted Symtec heated grip pads, and Pro-Grip 801's. I used this
same setup on my Tiger 1050 and 1200. Behind the LH Rad Panel
there is a 2 pin connector for heated grips, power only occurs when the
ignition is on and the engine is running.  Unlike the early 800 there is no
relay required on the 2015 800 so plumbing into the Tiger wiring is
relatively easy. I
also fitted a rubber cover for the toggle switch.
I plumbed in my Keis Heated
I also bought a Keis
remote Bluetooth control
so I
can vary the temperature from
the handlebars.
 One of my best
buys for winter riding
I used a Camelbak for many years but I am fed up with
carrying 2 kgs of water on my back.  So I purchased a
cheap Camelbak copy from eBay and I attach it to the fuel
tank, a great accessory for long trips.  I have travelled
10,000 miles with this drinking system
Triumph always supply big, awkward levers that are not well matched.  The adjustment on the clutch side is less than the brake side.  I purchased some
Brake and Clutch Levers from China through eBay.  Lovely CNC machining, great quality for £16.99p.  Come on Triumph, get a grip, change
your supplier, I have had to upgrade all 4 of my Tigers
When my levers arrived I discovered a problem, the XC"x" has a micro switch on the clutch side for disengaging Cruise Control, my levers did not have
a raised boss to connect to the micro switch.  So I spent 2 hours in the garage and fabricated a bracket which I bolted and glued in place.  I love this
sort of problem solving.
Pro-Grip 801's nice thin, soft,
sticky grips
