Not a free PDF, but you can buy one here for $45. http://www.sell.com/2683PH. Don't know how he's selling them for that price, but I have one and seems to be a perfectly good factory manual. Even if you find an illegal PDF, you'll spend half of this on ink and paper just printing it.

Can anyone provide a link to the Triumph accessories - esp. for the XC ? I have been to the Triumph site and it's a bit of a mess - way too busy, and I couldn't find a link to where I can find any information about the accessories.

Cheers

Question for "black" frame owners - What is Model Year?

The VIN number tells what is your bike's model year. The 10th digit of the VIN is the international code for model year. If the 10th digit on your bike's VIN is a "B", the bike is a 2011 model. If it is a "C", it is a 2012 model year. So, for you guys with black frame bikes, is the 10th digit a B or a C?

Thanks
Lion

They don't include the instructions in the owners manual any more? We are not talking about replacing valve guides or something.

Usually you get a picture of the drain plug location, Oil Specs, torque Specs. If you need more than that to do an oil change on a modern motor then maybe some practice on the neighbors minivan would be a better place to start.

Excellent, just what I was looking for. Thanks Jim

Glad I'm not the only one that struggles with the Triumph web site....

Looks like this jerkoff has obtained a digital copy of the manual somehow and is printing pirated bound copies. The real manual is 4-hole punched on A4 paper and comes in a hard 4-ring binder.

I say buy it from Triumph, the manual is well worth the $100 asking price. But if you must pirate it at least get it for free so jerks like the guy above don't make money off the pirating.

Here's what I think is the same guy and even slightly cheaper shipping.

http://store03.prostores.com/servlet...h-Tiger/Detail

Basically $41 USD out the door, shipped.

The consensus on the other Tiger site is the guy bought one, photo-copied it and had them rebound. According to the original post the manual arrive and looks great. I actually tried to order a service manual with my bike but my dealer said they're currently back-ordered until November?!?!!
