I got the Stainless version of this exhaust for my TIger. I installed it myself in under an hour, everything fit perfectly, no need to bend anything into place. I left the dB killer in for now and it isn't very loud, but gives a much better tone than the stock unit. While riding the bike you still hear more of this bike's very loud intake than you do of the exhaust, but I can't say what passerby's hear more of.
it's also about half the size of the stock exhaust and makes the bike look a lot better, and it doesn't get nearly as hot. I plan on taking the dB killer out once I get a chance to take it in to the dealer and have them switch the bike over to the higher performance engine map. Overall fit an finish is fantastic.
One thing to note is that this item does not ship from RevZilla's Philly location, it comes from another warehouse in California, and ships FedEx instead of the usual UPS. I usually get items to my house in CT the next day when I order from RevZilla with standard shipping, but this item didn't ship until a few days after I ordered, and then took a week to get here. About average for ordering stuff online, but not at the level of RevZilla's usual super fast processing.

I purchased these thinking they would be a good cheaper alternative to buying heated gloves. When I got my first set they were defective and the left glove burned my hand in one spot. RevZilla quickly exchanged them for me, A+ on the customer service.
I got my second set and installed them right away since it's really cold out. What is impressive about these gloves is how quickly they heat up, and how hot they get. they are also very thin for a heated liner, not much thicker than the non heated liners I have. However they are just thick enough that most of my regular gloves don't fit over them, I cant get my fingers in! The one pair of my gloves that does fit over them is so tight that I can barely move my fingers on the controls.
So I'm going to have to go buy a pair of gloves that are a size larger than my normal ones so I can hopefully fit them over these liners and use them. But if I knew that would be the case, I would have just ponied up for heated gloves in the first place.
I do have thick fingers, so if you have skinny fingers this may not be an issue for you.

This part does the job, it allows me to actually use the otherwise useless Powerlet socket on my Tiger 800. It seems to be built pretty sturdy. The only thing I'd like to have is a waterproof cover so I could leave it on the bike all the time.

I was on my third set of 023s when I got a puncture in the rear. Ordered a new one from RevZilla and had it the next day with free shipping, best service around!
Now onto the tire. I've had Michelin Road 2s, and Pirelli Angel STs, but my favorite of the bunch is the Bridgestone 023. The Pirelli performs better but has very short life, and the Michelin has better wet grip and lasts longer, but I found the rear gets slippery on very hot days. The Bridgestone On the other hand, has excellent performance in all conditions and lasts me about 8,000 miles. I had the old 021s, and those were dogs, but believe me, the 023 is head and shoulders above the old version. When these wear out, I'll buy more.

Let me start off by saying this shield works great, very convenient to not have to carry multiple shields, the transition happens very rapidly. This is the whole reason why I got into a Bell in the first place. Now the downside...
Just a couple days after I got it I saw taking my helmet out of my closet to ride to work. It just brushed against the door very lightly and BAM, a two inch long gouge in my $110 shield. For the price you pay for this shield I would expect some sort of anti scratch coating of something. This shield cost 1/3 of what I paid for the whole RS1 helmet, I'd like to have it last a while. For this kind of durability I'd rather buy plain $30 shields.
This is a common problem with Bell shields I think, even the stock shield scratched easilyy. Meanwhile my AGV shields can take a beating and never look worse for the wear.

I wear size 30x29 in jeans and the size 46 fits me perfectly. I have thicker calves so it's a little tight in that are but the zippers are mounted to stretchy fabric panels so it works fine. The leather is very thick and armor is in all the right places and really isn't even noticeable. The addition of knee sliders is nice as well in case you want to do a track day.
Mates up to my size 50 Dainese Zen Evo perfectly. no complaints here.
The pants are quite warm so if you'll only be using them when it's hot out I'd recommend going with the perf'ed version, but I ride all year round night and day so I went with the non perf since there is no re moveable liner in either version.
