Thanks lobout. I saw a K&N on Bike Bandit. I was wondering if anyone has used individual filters on each carb or used a UNI foam filter inside the airbox as well.
I'm trying desperately to keep this first generation Tiger on the street due to its wonderful engine.
It does have a wonderful engine. I put 63500 trouble free miles on mine before I sold it. A broken ignition key was the only time it left me stranded. I got the K&N because I didn't want to be replacing filters every couple of years, and it is also supposed to give you a bit more power. Can't say I noticed though
lobout: Since you had your bike for so many miles I have another question. This bike has always had a problem: I fill it up with gas and ride for 10+ miles and the bike hesitates and then stops with symptoms of running out of gas. I can wait a few minutes and then get it going again. I have checked fuel filters, the breather on the tank (finally took it out), and still have never been able to fix this. It seems that it doesn't happen if I have the fuel valve on reserve. Did you have this problem. By-the-way mine has 27K miles on it.
