Some Extras to make Tiger 1050 ownership even better
Tool Kit Holder
The standard plastic Triumph Tool wallet is useless. As
a replacement I bought a denim pencil case from a £1
shop. The standard Tiger tools are shown on the right
and the extra tools I carry are shown on the left. i.e.a set
of Spanners, a set of Allen Keys and a set of Torx keys.
Triumph Tiger 1050 Handguards (2011) below
On my Tiger's 4th birthday I decided to fit some proper
Triumph Handguards to replace the GS items I fitted
originally. Needless to say the Triumph items fit very well
and the mountings are all stainless steel. They do not
interfere with the leavers and they have a cleaner look to
A Fender Extender is essential to keep the muck out of
the oil cooler. From the sticker it appears that the Triumph
OEM item is made by Pyramid.
I bought some blue anodised adjustable leavers off eBay for £15 each,
CNC machined, beautifully made. The span has 6 settings making them
more adjustable than the standard levers and suit my shorter fingers
I bought a nice set of
screen fixings from
ProBolt via eBay.
They look very good on
the Tiger, functional
without shouting bling.

I wear reading glasses and I sometimes when riding I wear
De-Walt Safety Glasses Bifocal Readers. I bought them
from the USA on eBay. They are well made, flexible and
comfortable to wear inside a helmet. I ordered a second pair
with clear lenses. The DeWalt's are worn by others I ride with
and come recommended.
