Question

I wonder what effect a Power Commander (or Power Commander like device) would have on the stalling issue??

According to the Power Commander site they are in the process of developing one for the 800.

You shouldn't have to buy a solution. Triumph will soon solve the problem and all will be well in tiger land.

The charcoal canister is a possible culprit for stalling from stream crossings but not for the majority of the T800 stalling cases reported.. In the BMW case, it was sucking in enough water to somehow shut the engine down but I don't think it was filling the canister. You could shut the motor off, let the water drain out of the hose and it would restart but sometimes run a little ragged. Never happened to me because I re-routed the vent hose away from the rear tire and didn't cross streams, but I did see it happen to others while riding in the rain at highway speeds..

The tube-in-the-water test sounds good, but work the throttle as if riding

I agree.

Good lord. I just checked what my insurance jumped to for 1 year with the 800xc. I find it crazy that for identical coverages with progressive my drz bb stroker was 90bux, a f800gs was 369bux and for the 800xc it was 993bux. Anyone find a place that correctly classifies this bike and gives reasonable rates more in line with the f800gs? The only quote I have pulled from another company is geico which came out to 400...it is weird cause progressive has always been cheaper for me on every bike I have owned

I checked with my agent, was quoted $966 through Progressive.
She did find Pacific Specialty for $589...

I'm guessing since the model is so new, insurance companies are pricing the policies extremely high until they find out what repair costs are like on the 800/XCs....

$900+ is outrageous...I have Progressive too and my annual bill is less than $400. Granted, I'm almost 50, but your rate shouldn't be almost $1k unless you're 25 or younger.

They're just factoring in the cost of new frames due to the welded on rear footpegs. Maybe somebody from Progressive was following this thread and thought he'd be a hero... "Hey boss, that new Tiger 800 has welded on footpegs, we're gonna have to replace the frame even in a simple tipover, we better raise rates to cover them."

Before anyone freaks out, j/k I could care less about the footpeg hangers.

Regarding the stalling problem. Everyone who seems to have it has had their "500mi" service and has a stock exhaust....Is there anyone here who does not fit those criteria?

while we are talking money, I'd like to transfer my loan away from the dealer's financier, which gave me a 10% loan. Anyone have a lender to recommend checking out? Thanks

I have everything (house, cars, bikes) with State Farm so get some pretty good discounts. I do know that the annual premium for my 2011 800XC was exactly the same as the 2002 Suzuki 1200 Bandit that it replaced. That was weird when they told me that, but hell if I was going to complain. I'm 39 with a pretty clean record. State Farm goes by engine size and year more than anything else so I can see how a 2011 800cc could end up very similar to a 2002 1200cc. I don't have my statement here, but I know it's less than $400 a year and I think it was like $335 or similar. Again, I get some pretty big discounts for having everything through them. That's for full coverage... I think a $100 ded on Comp and $500 ded on Collision.
