I don't think your selector spring is at fault. Like you say your bike should have had the new one and having seen the spring first hand not sure how a tip over would impact the spring regardless. Anyway, hopefully it can be resolved quickly. The hassle sucks.

Hope it's a simple fix.

Sand must be more forgiving than mud...



no issues after this crash or another simple tip over on a steep uphill. I wonder if there wasn't a rock hidden in the mud that tweaked the shifter assembly.

My son had a simple low speed wash out on my DR in some very soft powdery dirt and this was the result...




there was a nice jagged rock just under the surface. Hope you get yours resolved quickly.

Yes. You can even get 2013 models if you'd like!

Never said it was safer, just said I like it more. Getting on the right side you have control, which is great as long as you don't screw up. 8^) I have slipped off the peg on the left side on one bike (peg was oily) less likely to happen on the right (but maybe more disastrous?) Some bikes lean over quite a bit and the tank can get in your way from the left.

Hell, get a running start and mount it from behind like the old westerns if that is what you like best. Each person has to decide what is best for them, then be responsible for the consequences. That may be a foreign idea these days, but the laws of physics are not to be trifled with.

Yeah, but I'm trying to not spend any more money than I have to seeing as I'm buying a house.

If someone has the Jesse luggage racks mounted on a Tiger can you let me know what the outside to outside dimension is, that is how wide is the whole set-up? By comparison I am told the Wolfman racks are 21 inches outside to outside dimension.

Yeah, I suppose anything is possible, but I sure didn't see anything in the 45 minutes or so I was crouched on the ground trying to figure out WTF was wrong. It was all pretty soft dirt/mud, I really didn't think anything of it when I first got the bike up. There was some dirt clumped in the crash bars and bark busters, and the shift lever was bent slightly, but that was the extent of the visible impact. Not sure what to think about how it seems nobody else has had this happen, but hopefully the dealership will be able to answer some questions soon.

With my Scorpion aftermarket slip on it's 15 5/8". With the stock pipe a 1" spacer was installed making it originally wider.
Hope this helps.

Please help a brother out and please save me the trouble of pulling the axles to measure the diameter of the front and rear axles of the Tiger 800 XC.

SPINDLE, FRONT WHEEL P/N 1389231
WHEEL SPINDLE, REAR P/N 2746078

Thanks.

It's just unlucky coincidence I think.
Generally not going to gears could happen for no apparent reason and no specific bike. I had such situation with one Yamaha about I think 7-8 years ago. Can be different, but in my case it was just matter of hitting gear lever at really really bad (for gearbox) moment. With motorcycle type of gearbox it could get badly stuck. I hope you have some other situation, because in my case with Yamaha we had to actually open engine up. But that was absolutely worst case scenario and accident took place on paved road.

What you do in this situation is, save/bookmark this website http://www.worldoftriumph.com/triump...odel_id=560041
Then you can look at the diagrams of the wheels http://www.worldoftriumph.com/triump...lock_03=560041 and look at the bearings which shows their size, item 7 = 20x47x14 so your front spindle is 20mm diameter.
I'll let you practice to find the rear spindle size.

I had fitted a couple of those manual holders to my SW Motech racks some time ago but never really liked them - they were a PIA to get to and I could never get the tools I wanted to carry fit in them. So, I took them off and tried a Kriega 10 I had lying around.

Pics:





I have spare tubes and all the tools I need (apart from my compressor and a tool roll under the seat) in the bag. I am just back from a trip on some pretty rough dirt roads and the bag didn't move an inch.

Just wanted to put that out there...

It looks like it could hit the swing arm...?
