Has anyone fitted oggy knobs (or something similar) to their Tiger instead of full on crash bars ? Naturally the bars will provide better protection but I'd like to suss out any alternates. (ok maybe I'm just trying to save a few bucks)
Oggy Nobs? I suppose you mean crash bungs/crash bobbins?
After dropping my tiger whilts trying to get it on it's stand when it was 2 days old, I decided I needed some crash protection against 'stationary drops'. I looked long and hard at the bars out there but I thought I'd try bungs instead.
Had a set made up for me because they have to be an uneven length to project equally each side of the tank. They look superb but having said that I dont have any pics! R&G also make a set for the Tiger.
In the case of a stationary or walking-pace drop, where the bike has to be lowered to the ground, I'm sure they will work a treat but if it's a big get-off crash bars will provide more protection, if they are designed correctly, but could transfer some impact to the engine casings.
