.You ever been inside both bikes and measured any thing? I think you will find most of the clearances are very close to each other.Ever had your tiger on the dyno.Will you bet money it will out pull my old tractor motor bonnie?
That is just about the silliest thing anyone has ever bet me! Unless you have your bonny built to the hilt then yes,I know for a fact the tiger would leave a bonny in the dust. I don't need to measure anything between the two,air cooled motors are alway built looser in the pistons and cyclinder to accomadate the more severe heating and cooling cycle. Btw,assuming you were to ever meet me or any other tiger 1050 on the road,I or they would gladly let you contemplate there or mine liscence plate and tailights as you see them fade off ahead of you.
It would not be fair to you you have a smaller motor your 1050 to my 1087.The 113 hp is that not what triumph rated your bike at? if thats the case thats crank hp you are only makeing around 100 at the rear wheel on the dyno.That will not be enough.140 mph wont cut it ether I will have a easy 10 to 20 mph on you in top end.that is with 9000 rpms.I wouldnt want to take your money you dont have a clue what a bonnie can be made to do.
