yeah indeed, the repair cost about 250 euros but i still dont know the final price because i left it at the Triumph service to get the 20.000km service done + labor costs.

Frame Repair

Looks outstanding.

If you're not going to run pannier racks permanently consider cutting the peg bracket tubes and inserting a break-way connector. Aluminim or copper tubing, something sacrificial. I can't advise exact material, but it's been discussed in the past. Beats the hell out of going thru that again.

So how many miles are you inmates getting on your chain?

What are you replacing with?

TIA
My stock chain has 18k miles and is just at the service limit. The sprockets look fine. The chain was abused for the first 5,000 miles (infrequent lubrication). Since then it has been lubed as specified (200-300 miles) and cleaned regularly. I use Maxima cleaner and Maxima Chain Wax. Not going to replace it until it is beyond the service limit.

Given users can adjust page lengths, posting to a particular page # is spotty at best. Your reference to page 1212 doesn't work when I'm only on page 187 (100 posts/page).

Can you put up a link to a specific post?

How cool is this?

I recently traded my 2011 800XC for a new 2012 model. The other day I got an email from Triumph with a code good for $500 US worth of Triumph accessories. How cool is that? The shop owner made the deal on the bikes with me and was unaware of the promotion.

If you want a Triumph and can find what you want in a 2012 edition you get the same deal. That's almost enough to cover engine crash bars, skid plate and heated grips.

Yes, that works peachy keen if you're on the default 20 posts/page. I'm set to 100 posts / page. If there were a page 1212 for me, it'd be psots 121201-121300; In those conditions, post 18169 is on page 181.

That works. Until I got my brain wrapped around what the picture showed, I thought "Why is is brake reservoir on upside down?


ObTiger800... Starting with the day I rode it home (in the rain), my XC has somehow managed to fill the right handwarmer pocket of my Aerostich with water. I thought that was odd, and slightly annoying, but whatever. Yesterday I let a friend ride it; he had the same experience. Does anyone else find that when they ride in the rain, and they're wearing a Roadcrafter, that water somehow gets into those pockets? I don't just mean damp inside, I mean actual standing water...

Could be the shape of the tank. I've noticed that water runs up along the top surface of the tank and then the wind takes it off the trailing edge and away. Great for keeping your thighs dry but I guess if that pocket is in the area of that trailing edge, all that water could chanel itself in there.

What is this port?

I was updating the tune on my bike's ECU, and while it was resetting adaption, I did an exam of the engine.

For the first time that I can remember, I noticed this port on the right side transmission case. I am guessing it's a vent of some sort, but want to clarify. At first, I thought that I'd lost some sort of bolt or plug from it, but photos online of the engine show the same as mine; it's open.

Any ideas?

PS, don't know about the 'port' thing, don't worry if it's not bleeding anything. I'd be more concerned about being at the low end of oil fill, I keep mine 3/4 to full. If it's on the center stand in the pic I would check it, if you're on the side stand cool.

Edit to add --> Oh and BTW, way to freaken' clean.

Not my bike, it is a pic I pulled from a Google search when looking for examples.

Stiff gas cap lock

One of those things I keep forgetting to ask about... When opening or closing the gas cap, the key is fairly hard to turn- tighter than any other bike I've ever owned.

Is this normal, common, not unusual, not a big deal, or something to get fixed?
