Question about 2007 Triumph Tiger

2 Answers

Short guy riding :)

My question is, The speedy is at the edge of my tippy toe ability,( 5'6 & 30 inseam) The Tiger is past it. I've been riding for 15 years and it seems everything but cruisers are too tall, I've learned to accommodate. Has anyone lowered a newer Tiger? If so, Howdja do it? Hows it working for you? I'm not looking to rail corners with this bike, Got a Supermoto for that. Just looking to do more distance riding and in town commuting comfortably.

I've lowered my 1050 tiger to make it more manageable in traffic at slow speeds without compromising high speed handling, i designed a new rear linkage for the rear suspension that simply replaces the existing plates which drops the bike 30mm down measured vertically at the rear axle, I then brought the front forks up through the triple clamps and bars 10mm higher than standard, the end result is a transformed motorcycle that's quite user friendly, if i can help try me on

I've just lowered the front part and that helps, also it seems my beast is easier to handle in corners. i've not lowered the 'backside'. it makes using the 'vertical jiffy' (sorry just can remember the english verb - i'm dutch) that much harder. so to summerize: great idea works for me

How do I lower a 2001 Honda Deauville NTV 650

Hi, Pbramm11 here are some options for lowering your bike depending on your needs and wallet:
1. Rear shock lowering kit.
2. Front fork lowering kit.
3. Shorter rear shocks.
4. Shorter front forks.
5. Thinner padded seat.
6. Smaller diameter wheels.
7. Lower profile tires.
Please be aware that some of these options or a combination of options will require a shorter kickstand or your stock one modified.

Repair gearbox sharft

Each prop shaft from different manufacturers is removed diferently. But- once out - a press with a couple wood blocks can straighten it provided it is just a slight wobble. If the prop can not be put on, it should be replaced.

While its out check the area the seal rides and see if it is worn badly. If a deep grove and it's shedding metal, you should replace it. I've had no luck with "speedy sleeves" in a marine environment.

My lawn tractor pulls to the right when driving can i fix this?

The Toe In/Toe Out will have to be adjusted (if the steering rods to each front wheel have sleeves), just like on a car.

Toe-in is the operating angle of front wheels on a riding tractor. If the front edge of the wheels point inward, towards each other, then the wheels have toe-in. If the front wheels point outward, the unit has toe-out (or negative toe-in). Adjustment of toe-in is necessary to maintain proper steering control.
Unlike automobiles, our tractors have pre-set camber and caster settings. Therefore no camber or caster adjustment is necessary.
Acceptable toe-in adjustment range for all of our lawn & garden tractors is anywhere between 1/16"-5/16". With 1/8" serving as the optimal range.
Detailed toe-in adjustment procedures for the various models of tractors are reviewed in the "Adjustments" section of the Operators Manual for the tractor.
If tires are not toed-in properly after adjustment, it is likely that other part(s) need service or adjustment. axles, wheel bushings, control arms and other steering components may be worn or damaged and will need inspection. Service these items as needed.
You haven't stated your make and model, so I can't send you the manual with the exact procedure for your machine.

I'm looking for a new rock climbing shoes.A friend of mine recommended me on 'Copperhead Climbing Shoe'. Any experience with this shoe guys?

I own it .So far, I like this shoe. First off, most 5.10 shoe toe shapes don't work for my feet (my second toe is as long as my big toe). However, this shoe provides a fit with no slop for my toes while allowing my toes to not be jammed up with their knuckles grinding through the top of the shoe.
For climbing, I'd say they do very well for trad climbing. Not as well for power-edging 5.11 and up, but just fine for easier stuff.Overall good shoe; would recommend it. .

Whast is the best way to lower a 1977 kawasaki kz650 with minimal change to handling characteristics. I am on tippy toe when I sit on it. I will be rebuilding the bike this wintwer

shorter shocks at the back, drop the fork legs up in the yokes to keep the bike level, if only short journeys you can get the seat foam cut and seat re covered, not too much or it'll hurt :))

Edge 305 shuts off during a short 1 hour ride

I have the same problem. When I contacted Garmin they quickly diagnosed that my battery disconnects as a result of vibrations (like the ones you feel on your handlebars). Since I purchased this device over a year ago, their solution was for me to send it to them and pay $100 to get it fixed. Now one of the guys I ride with is having the same problem. I am very disatisfied with the Garmin 305's reliability. I'm not giving Garmin any more cash. (I paid $350 for this GPS 18 months ago!)

Does anyone know how to open the 305 so I can resecure the battery?
