I did the million dollar highway last June on my XC. They musta had some money left over from construction because they spent the last few dollars on "chipping" the whole effing road to Ouray!

It finally went out a couple of weekends ago while I was riding five to ten hours a day over three days and 1100+ miles. Nice to see that it was eventually made happy about the state of things.
The Triumph service manual states "40 re-sets" for the check-engine light to extinguish but does not explain what a re-set is.

My check-engine light just went out after 485 miles since correcting the error. My commute is only 4 miles and I've been running a bunch of errands, so I'd say that 40 re-sets probably equals 40 starts, seems about right.

Great bike, even at run-in limits.

Not sure if it is the same with the tiger but with the speed four, a reset equals a heat cycle or every time the fan turns on.

for example when my battery crapped out and needed replacement, the engine light turned on and I had to turned it on, wait for fan to kick in, turn off let it cool down and do the same 2 more times.

Or you can just reset it with DealerTool or TuneECU.

I don't think TuneECU will reset codes will it? It will read them but I don't think it resets them. Been over a year since I was last in there so I could be mistaken.

Yes it will. I have reset a code on my bike with it.

I stand corrected and fixed my original post. Only reason I bought DealerTool was to reset the wrench icon and bleed my ABS. Have always used TuneECU for loading maps.

WOWSA!!!!!

When I bought my Tiger last year bought some 2 inch Rox Risers for it and one thing lead to another and I forgot to install them. Yesterday they went on the bike and my Tiger is now most likely one of the most comfortable bikes I ever owned outside of my Gold Wings.

New Shock for the Roadie Tiger.

Finally got around to installing the HyperPro shock. I was dreading it but it wasn't that bad. You just had to have an assortment of tools.

To remove the links - 16mm & 17mm
Shock lower - T55 Torx bit & 17mm
Shock upper - 8mm Allen & 14mm




I also installed some raising links (+1 inch) while I was at it to save wear and tear on my boot toes in the turns. No problem for the side stand. In case you wanted to see the difference in links.


Remote preload adjuster option.


I took the bike for a short test ride today. Very interesting and hard to describe. It felt like I had new tires, very fluid. The ride didn't seem as harsh. I'm 250lbs geared up and I think I was over taxing my stock shock. I also ordered some progressive fork springs & 10W oil from the same place so now I need to get those installed pronto.

I went ahead and removed the rear tire for the install to give me some extra room and that was when I noticed my rear brake pads, WHOA. The outboard pad is a little thin. Ordered some new pads tonight.

I have about 16,500 miles on the 2011 Tiger.

Is that the basic 460 or 360 shock? And if so, am I right in saying that it only has rebound damping adjustment?
Also, what did they charge for the remote preload?
