Which Tiger are you referring to? Aren't there two different tiers of Tigers. I presume you're talking about the 800? I'm not a big fan of Adv bikes as they're all kinda tall for me and I'm 5'7" lol.

Great idea though and I'll seriously consider it.

I get that a lot. We are highly skilled radicals. I do use my blinkers so I'm not as telepathic as most.

Highly skills radicals...so you break off random oxygen particles to cause random oxidation? :P LOL

If you're still alive it means either you're super lucky, super skilled, or a combination of the both.

Considering switching to a 765RS

I picked up a 765 RS a month or so ago. Absolutely the most fun on a bike Iíve owned. Previous bikes were a ninja 650, Daytona 675R, aprilia RSV4 RR and my current track only CBR600RR.

The 765s are now finally starting to get some good aftermarket. Rearsets wise, Sato have the best on the market right now. No figment issues like all the other brands (usually with the brake line being too short). Tons of adjustment and keeps the stock rear brake switch.

For my 520 conversion i think superlite sprockets are the only option right now. Chain wise I used EK 3D 520GP @118 links. Total weight saved was around 2 pounds.

How do you like it compared to the Daytona?

I test rode a 785R, I thought it was a blast... as near a perfect bike if there ever was one, but I'm keeping my '15 Daytona.

I did test ride one also when they came out and loved it. I've never had a naked bike as daily bike though, but like the idea that I can take the 765 to the track and I can modify if I want (GP shift!).

The 765 RS is the better bike IMHO. Just as nimble, more top end and super comfortable. You can easily do a 400 mile day and not feel like crap afterward.

Hey with the fly screen or an aftermarket Puig screen made FOR the Street Triple what kind air management do you get?
