    Apologies for multiple posts, just to mention that squaredeals could do themselves a favour and supply matching screws because as you can see you have to use the existing ones, would be nice to have it all matching.

    It's a shame they don't supply the matching screws. I did'n realise that. Looks good though.

    Hi Dozersdad, no mate I bought it from squaredeals.co.uk, and in all honesty the service was very good, even replied to my emails (shock horror). They do a good range of Triumph parts for different bikes too. My photos aren`t great but the actual item in the flesh is a good quality item.

    I know my thoughts exactly, but the black screws kind of set it of really. I have no idea where to source the screws from.

    I see what you mean, you should put a claim in for publishing/image rights, I bet he will soon take that pic down. It is in my opinion a good finish but you are right his pic is pretty cack :eek:

    Hi all
    Got my bike Thursday and only having my first ride tomorrow, had a few issues to say the least , turned up front lights all blown , and rear calliper binding , how it got though mot I don't know , came from main triumph dealer as well , so with in a hour of having it had to strip front end to replace side lights and dip light , then found rear wheel almost locked up , so today replaced rear pads and cleaned and free up calliper , to say the least not happy :(:(:(:(:(:(
    But hopefully I should now start to enjoy my bike

    Damn! I would call them or drop them an email to expalin how disgruntled you are on the purchase. They should have put it right for you at their expense. Quote them the "sales of good act" saying that the bike wasnt fit for purpose.

    Well done, sad that the same can't be said of the supplying dealer and hope all goes well.

    And welcome from another Tiger 1050 owner. I wouldn't have bothered with the lights. Actually, it is quite a cheek to even call them that. Pair of candles more like...

    But apart from that a fantastic bike with one of the greatest engine I have ever had the pleasure having underneath my buttocks. Hope you will have nothing but joy with it! Just don't even think of riding in the dark...
