The difference, and it can be a big difference (to total or not to total a bike from a minor incident) is that on the BMW F800GS they are welded to the sub-frame. In the Tiger, the frame is a one piece... So once it is bent or a weld broken, the whole thing is compromised.

Back to the Triumph Tiger, I agree with you, bolted on or welded on, it is a problem because there is no sub-frame. The difference is that when it is bolted on, you can remove them when not carrying a passenger or when going off-road.

Orange Tiger 800 XC

Allsports, a Triumph dealer in Decatur, AL has an orange Tiger 800 XC in stock, just putting it out here if anyone is interested. I went to the British in the Blue Ridge rally this past weekend and must have seen 10 new Tiger 800's and all were in white, this orange model is gorgeous.

Service Interval indicator and mystery icon

Two dashboard display questions, looked through my manual front to back and did searches and didn't come up with anything.

1. I'm doing my own service. How do you reset the Service Interval indicator (the little wrench) in the display? In the Setup menu I can get to a display that I think is showing "SIA" at the top and the negative mileage past the service interval at the bottom, but I can't figure out how to reset it. The manual just says the dealer will do it.

2. There is a icon in the middle of the dash, just to the right of the gear indicator that looks like a toothed ring or gear or something. Nothing in the manual references what that icon actually means. I think it's pretty much on all the time on my 800XC-ABS. Any idea what it indicates?

Thanks!

DealerTool may allow you to reset the service indicator as well as bleed the ABS when the time comes. Otherwise you need to plug into your dealer's computer.

I test rode an orange Tiger XC, and gotta say it was pretty great. If I had to have just one bike, this would be the one. As it is now though I have a relatively new and farkled DR for the dual sportin' and a Rocket 111 Roadster for the rest of it.
Maybe in a few years...

Public service announcement: Hold the pass switch down for one minute and you'll blow a fuse and then you have no lights. Don't try at night while watching for deer eyes.


That is all.

It's part of the gear indicator, simply a gear icon. Kinda like the units to the right of the other readouts, so represents 1st gear, 2nd gear etc.

Threw me on my Daytona for a while. Looked like the 'snowflake' low temperature warning icon on a R1200GS.

DealerTool told me that they have a new version coming out this month which will have the capability to reset the service indicator. Otherwise it's the dealer or just leave it be.

There are plenty of bikes waiting for buyers on dealer show rooms.

Thanks for the responses. I guess I'll just get used to the little wrench on there...
