Sounds like it may have been the return spring broke. Did you get the recall on that previously?

Nope. They said that it was some kinda plate chipped in there.

The detent wheel, maybe? I broke a tooth off mine when I took what seemed to be a minor spill off road. Landed on the left side and apparently the hit on the shift lever enough to snap the tooth. Got the bike upright, dusted myself off and then discovered that I couldn't shift out of 1st. Be glad that you got to ride yours home. We tried a trailside repair on mine and successfully got it into neutral--and nothing else. On a mountain. In the middle of nowhere.

I was lucky to have my buddy with me, and to be mostly uphill from the closest forest service road. Rode out to call for a tow truck which turned into a day long ordeal, and ended up having my bike two weeks in the shop on the other side of the sound. Important lesson learned: if your bike is stuck in 1st, be thankful for small favors and don't try to fuck with it until you're home, or at least in civilization.

So it was a failure of the shifting mechanism and not a gearbox failure.

of course its not off an 800xc but does it fit an 800xc? Looks like some kind fuel cell that fits under the existing tank. Not really interested myself just thought it odd something like this might exist without having heard about it.

I think this is a good deal. What do you think?

I have made up my mind and have decided to sell my 2012 Vstrom 650. I have 10,000 problem free miles on it but, despite what a great bike it is, I want something with more power.

I have found a used, 2012 Triumph Tiger XC 800. It has only 1300 miles on it, still under warranty and is completely stock. The owner got hurt in a non-motorcycle accident and is just now able to ride again. However, he has decided to give up riding and sell the bike. He is asking $8900 firm. I think this is a fair price, what do you think?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Very reasonable price imo. I remember my dealer quoting me $11.2k for a new 2012 so this is over 2k cheaper and its practically new.

I bought a very slightly used 2012 XC last Dec. That's a reasonable price.
