She'd eat ya alive!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: If your asking about brake pads now, you must soon be ready to take the Tiger out for a drive :?: Well, there are good ways to die. :D No. It's simply that I have finished ( I bloody hope so anyway) the brakes so I want to get them working so I have a victor...

...an alloy rad perhaps to help keep things cool. You may not be going fast enough to get the airflow through the stock rad :wink:
You're obsessed with doing things quickly. Roz must be delighted....

I'm not going to scrimp on brakes. I'm daft but not stupid ( although I'm sure there are those who would disagree). Equally though I'm not going to lash out on a full on modern set up. I would guess that the vast majority of Tigers run their original calipers and the death rate seems fairly low at t...

In this case my driving style is lead by my wallet.
Some Tiger owners have a small pot to work with.

Need Help Finding New Pads For The Tiger.

I'm after a set of new front pads for the tiger. Unfortunately, I'm no brake pad expert. If I need pads for the Renault, I go to Renault. If I need pads for the Suzuki, I go to Suzuki. No research required. Not so simple with the Tiger it seems. The car is very likely to be standard when finished. I...

Seems these are no longer made and website as listed above now inactive. I bought one via STOC a few years back, any ideas why production has ceased. I thought they were supposed to be superior in their design to the more conventional paper element. Pity of the company or technology has folded.... ...

Indeed, but the only thing to be aware of when bolting modern 'go faster' kit is it adds another dimension to the reliability of the setup. If you are thinking of say foreign trips into Europe, then you'll need to be aware of all the spares to take with you. I have a boot full of spares on my forei...

Some do, some don't.

Sunbeam Specialties ones are eccentric so they are available.
