The only difference is color options & the XC is now on the plastic not the tank

Aesthetic difference only; no functional change.

Stalling problem was (mostly) fixed by a fuel map update, which applies to all Tiger 800s. No non-cosmetic changes between any year XCs.

Yeah, if you want the gnarly green one it's going to be a 2013.

That does not seem like much of a discount. My dealer offered close to a grand off it I would take a 2012 XC instead of the 13 roadie I purchased.

Nah, this was right after her "little" crash. She was way ahead of me, chasing a KTM and a BMW F800 rider on her DR200 and having way too much fun. They were blasting up that steep climb and all was going well till a truck crested the ridge, Jodie moved over but she was following too close and couldn't see the trail for the dust. The KTM rider said she bounced back and forth off three baby head sized rocks before landing on her head in the ditch.

She was pretty rattled and said she saw stars, but was taking it like a trooper...



I wasn't even going to try to keep up with those guys. The KTM rider said "She was doing really well, until she hit all those rocks."

I agree... I saved $1200 by buying a 2012 BLACK 800 XC instead of a 2013 BLACK one!! Easy decision for me, the extra $1200 went towards gear and farkles.

For only $300 difference I would either shop elsewhere or buy the 2013...

To paraphrase a Casey Stoner quote :- "Her ambition outweighed her talent". Glad she's OK.

Laugh HappyTrails / Leo Vince Fitment issue on 800XC

Hello Tiger Fans
I have been adding farkles to my new 800XC all winter and recently bought HappyTrails SU Rack for Crash protection and mounting bags in the future.
I had already added a LeoVince pipe which I like the looks and sound of !
Problem is the right side forward mount near the passenger peg did not fit due to the pipe. The LeoVince pipe is larger and closer to the frame so there is not sufficient room for the back half of the clamp behind the frame tube.
I have included some pics so you can see how I remedied the problem.
1st pic shows how close the pipe is to the frame.
Other pics show the adapter plate I fabricated to allow for the clamps to be mounted higher and above the pipe.

Everything fits nice and solid now and no interference anywhere.
Problem solved !

Put me on the list if you plan on making more of these please.

This is absolutely brilliant. I'll be making one for mine and then get the Leo can back that I returned. Wow. I just didn't think of something this simple to fix the issue.

Thanks!!
