|Here are a few ways of improving long term Tiger ownership.
Thunderbike crash-bars from Thunderbike in New Zealand
An absolute must have. They really do work. I had 3 small "Offs" either off-road
or at steep off camber junctions. No damage to the bike. The screen, tank,
mirrors, indicators and bar-ends were unmarked. Absolutely Brilliant! My top
rated accessory. Makes the Tiger look well 'hard.
Garmin Nuvi 360 Deluxe GPS - My favourite toy. I upgraded my Quest
SatNav to a Garmin Nuvi. Full European Maps in 3D and it plays
MP3's and holds UK Speed Camera Alerts (All for £185). The only
problem is this set-up was not waterproof, I drowned it twice but it
worked again when dried out. The Nuvi also had blue tooth hands free
so it tells me when the phone rings and I could read texts on the move.
Quite a neat bit of kit. Great in the Car as well.
"Lubetronic" chain oiler from Motrax (Renamed PDOiler).
This device uses a solenoid wired into the ignition circuit to
automatically dispense the oil. I like Scottoiler's however as
the carburation on the Tiger was perfect I did not want to
adversely affect it by tapping into the manifold. Neither did I
want to invalidate the warranty. I used Scottoiler delivery
tubes and Scottoiler oil. The first chain was replaced at
20,000 with little sign of wear! (Much better than the good
old days). Link to website PDOiler site
I fitted the optional electronic oil supply control and switched to "Fast" oil. It worked
well. It was siliconed to the rear mudguard and the adjuster was accessible from behind
the left side panel. (see know in middle of picture on left)
Some Extras to make Tiger 955i ownership even better
Get both headlights to work in dip and main beams
To make both lights work in dipped and main beam on UK spec Tiger 955i's you have to replace a missing solenoid. See
955i Servicing page for details. This was my first modification in my first week of ownership.
