    How about REintroduce yourself?

    Hey guys, Remember me? For the old timers on here who remember, I backed out of the forum a few years ago when I started a new project. I was building a generator that required no fuel, but would put out usable 110 and 220 AC power. The only one who has seen it from the forum, is Lupe. But...

    RAT pack patches

    ok, Most everybody bought their bike from a dealer, some bought second hand but they still got a dealer somewhere around right? As everyone undoubtedly knows, Triumph only endorses RAT packs through the dealers. Some packs have their own patches some don't. If your dealer has a RAT pack patch...

    How To use TuneECU

    I watched a video of a guy using and explaining the TuneECU program on a Triumph Tiger 1050. Answered a lot of questions. Didn't explain everything about it, like the F & I tables, didn't explain anything on the diagnostic end of it, but quickly hit on enough of it to make it less intimidating...

    oil change intervals ( Members survey)

    Nope, you're right, he's wrong. You care about your bike, he's there to make money. i usually change mine about every 10,000 miles. Don't wash it that often, but that's not a requirment like oil is.

    right side off/on switch

    Guys, I know there is a fake headlight kill switch on the right side, that is, the "fake button" doesn't move. I also know I want to put a headlight kill switch in its place. So that when I'm starting the bike, it won't be a draw on my battery. I could just put a toggle switch in the line, but...
