Fifth set of Extra's for the Tiger 1050 Electrics and Lights
Strip of LED Driving Lights (Under fairing), LED Spot Lights and LED side light bulbs
I bought a pair of LED strip lights from eBay and I have attached one strip under fairing with silicon seal.
The lights are wired to come on with the ignition. I've done this to increase visibility and safety. Last
year I discovered that my dipped beam bulb had failed. As I rarely drive at night I have no idea how long
I had ridden to London and back without lights!
The LED side light bulbs are also from eBay, they come with 9 tiny LED's clustered together and give off
a very bright white light compared with the standard tungsten bulbs. All the LED's make my dipped
beam look tired and yellow.
The LED spot lamps are from 2Allbuyer on
eBay. They supply sets with 3 or 4 LED's (Each
of the 3 LED's is a actually a cluster of light
sources), it seems appropriate to go for the 3
LED's on a 3 Cylinder Tiger. I fitted the brackets
to my crashbars and I have a switch on the
handlebars. I have used them at night in
conjunction with main beam and the light is so
white. I don't think you can use them all day
every day as the light would probably annoy other
I have purchased a 4 way automotive Fuse box and a 6 way Fuse Box that take
mini fuses (Same fuses as the Tiger 1050).
I fitted the 4 way Fuse Box under the cross member behind the battery. I have
wired in the my Chain Oiler, Klan Heated Jacket and a Red Wire to supply 12v to my
fuse box at the front of the bike
I fitted the 6 way Fuse Box behind the front fairing. I have wired in my GPS
Charger, Gear Indicator, Driving Light, Spot Lights, Heated Grips and Front 12v
Socket each with it's own fuse. I also use a strip of screw connectors to earth
everything to an earth wire attached to the lower fairing mount bolt in front of the
I fitted a Triumph 12v auxiliary power
socket. With the Tank removed I found the
12v connecting plug taped up near the
lefthand injector. I removed the tape then
simply plugged the power socket into the
connector and bolted it to the lower mounting
hole on the frame because my Crashbars
obstruct the top mounting
I have bought some Osram Night Breaker
Plus bulbs for Dipped Beam. They are a
Best buy according to Auto Express.
HOWEVER THESE BULBS BURNT A
BLISTER IN MY DIPPED BEAM LENS.
My dipped beam bulb mounting is a bit lose
so I fitted some foam tape to the back of the
cover to press the bulb forward and stop it
The 6 way front fuse box and earth
connector strip. It looks a mess but
everything in labelled and wrapped in
bubble wrap before the fairing went back on
The 4 way rear fuse box mounted upside
down behind the battery under the seat..
Power comes from the solenoid and is live
when the ignition is on.
I have fitted a 12v socket (with lid)
just to the right of my dipped
beam cover. This allows me to
charge anything on the move
Phone, Camera, MP3 etc
