Turning Bounce Into

There I was on the mighty Tiger in a left-hander, feeling confident well, fast. I was just for the sound of something to start Then I hit a small bump and bouncing. and bouncing. then I some more and started out!

By the time I made it to the it hit me: I needed suspension upgrades.

I bought this adventure-tourer a ago, this wasn’t the of adventure I had in mind. I actually use the more like a sport-tourer, or a sportbike. Aside from and the annual Los Angeles to Laguna road trip, most of my is through Southern California’s canyons as a weekend warrior.

I haven’t completely abandoned however. Prior to the first I added quite a few long-distance starting with Givi’s V46 top case. That’s mono key as in one key to unlock or remove the case, and 46 as in of cargo capacity. I use the top case day, and it holds everything a spare pair of gloves and a to an overnight bag.

Installation of the rack was very simple only basic hand

The MRA Vario Touring Screen is another indispensible addition. from looking cooler the stock windscreen in smoke or the Vario allows you to adjust via a seven-position spoiler. Adjust till you get your proper on.

I invested in a set of GSG-Moto frame and rear-axle protectors early on, and just say they’ve paid for more than twice. from heavy-duty steel, and DuPont Delrin, these provide solid, relatively protection. Fit and finish are fantastic and is simple.

That’s when I scouring the Internet for the best to firm up the Tiger.

I settled on an 3-way Sportsbike Shock out along with a Traxxion AK-20 Axxion Cartridge Kit and 1.05-kg. springs for the fork. a brief conversation with from each company, I I was in good hands. Both about my weight and riding to help their technicians the base settings.

When two big boxes of suspension showed up, I incentivized (read: with beer) Test Manager Michael Candreia to me install the new/refurbished bits.

You can almost adjust it on the fly.

Dynamics did a great job on the fork as No more bottoming out over bumps, excess dive braking or bouncing through what I was looking for. I realized how much English I was on my British bike to get it to go where I

While Michael was at it, I also had him a Two Brothers VALE carbon-fiber M-2 that subtracted 9.5 pounds and 3.9 rear-wheel horsepower at 9250 Even with the P1 PowerTip Suppressor in place, the Tiger now a sweet growl every I open the throttle.
