None, there is just a different tune map for the xc.

Road 800 tune has TPMS, the XC does not.

Yossarian just answered, the roadie has tire pressure monitors, the xc does not, so they get different ecu programs or "tunes".

So....I guess I need to take the wheel off, remove the tire and put it on the right way and re-install the front wheel in the CORRECT position.

Did I mention I'm a dumb-ass
Classic!

On the bright side, you paid attention to the rotational direction when installing the wheel!

BTW I know that the tires are marked for rotational direction and as I recall from a couple months ago, I think the wheels might be too. Look for a little arrow mark on the wheel. I'm not sure if they are or if I'm remembering wrong. So yeah, make sure you get all the arrows (wheel and tire) pointing in the right direction.[/QUOTE]


The XC front wheel has little arrows on the hub on one side. Ken

I might not have said anything then Yeah, that would have sucked the big one - shops are closed around here on Monday otherwise....

Good catch, man. Takes some cojones to come back and admit when you fucked up but all can now benefit from your mistake. And much better that you caught it before you had to spend money to get someone else to troubleshoot.

Don't worry about it man, we've all done plenty of stupid shit like that.

All the arrows are pointing in the right direction now I figured I'd let everyone know what the issue was, that's what this thread is about right....

I swear it takes me 10 minutes to figure out which way the tire goes on every time I change one because of that bloody arrow - I check and re-check it over and over

On a good note, I did manage to swap the tire over in about 15 mins so I guess I'm getting better at it...

Eek ABS good or bad

How's everyone liking the ABS option on this bike? Seems like not many people like it...

I'm surprised by that. I find the ABS to be very good.

It's not intrusive; I can leave it on when riding off pavement and it's not given me any nasty surprises so far. It works well when it does kick in.

If it's down to a vote then I'm giving it a positive.

In a word, fantastic. Works seamlessly. Just got back from a 3-day 625 mile trip with about a hundred miles of dirt roads. Never switched it off, never bothered me. More and more riders are finding that unless the terrain is really steep or they're trying to trailride the damn thing, the ABS works just fine on loose surfaces.

I have talked to GS riders that always switch theirs off, so I am gathering that the Triumph abs unit must work exceptionally well.

I hear my rear tire chattering all the time but never bothers, only assures.


EDIT: BTW, I think all the bikes shipped to NA have ABS, so it's probably a moot point. Also btw, it's easy to switch off at the instrument panel, a little fiddly with the menus 'till you learn where everything is and how to get there, but nothing too complicated.

The ABS works very very well. Personally, I'd just rather NOT have it as it's just added complexity I don't want or need but when it works, it works very well.

I think all the bikes that ship now and have for while, have ABS. I believe some of the early ones did not have ABS. When I ordered my bike (May 2011 IIRC) I was told I had no choice.

Only issue for me was once, going down a steep hill on loose dirt - appeared to be almost no braking. But 99% of time ABS stays on, regardless of roads - works great. Did get a rock stuck in ABS ring - CEL light was on - had it 'cleared' & offending rock removed passing thru Reno - Nice Triumph dealer there - took it in right away. Now I know what to look for if it happens again.
