Picture Thread

Can one of you Tiger 800 XC owners start a picture thread? Theres a Tiger picture thread but it full of Tiger 1050 pics. I want to see only Tiger XC's in their natural habitat!!

Yep.

The Power Commander will solve the excessive heat issue as well.

I'm 39 with a pretty clean record. State Farm goes by engine size and year more than anything else so I can see how a 2011 800cc could end up very similar to a 2002 1200cc. I don't have my statement here, but I know it's less than $400 a year and I think it was like $335 or similar. Again, I get some pretty big discounts for having everything through them. That's for full coverage... I think a $100 ded on Comp and $500 ded on Collision.
Yeah, I'm with State Farm as well and also have a multi-policy discount (plus a substantial no-claims discount). They charged me somewhere around $250 a year for full coverage on my XC, about the same as my Wee-Strom was (and yes, I was very surprised).

FYI... I think I remember reading somewhere that the Tiger was occasionally getting mistakenly classified as a sportbike by insurance agents. That would definitely explain the high price you were quoted.

I'm sure Triumph could use that info and I'll bet they are collecting it now. I'm also curious to possibly stem some of my own paranoia about my bike developing the sickness. I have one of the first few orange abs' delivered in the US with a build date of 03/11.

FWIW, my non-stalling ABS XC also has a build date of 03/11.

I also have a non stalling 800XC with ABS. Build date 3/11.

Triumph should be tracking this if their customer support and dealer support channels are worthy.

Well first of all, the only thing they can track are issues reported to them via the dealers - people like myself who have had no issues won't be being tracked and secondly, as much as we bitch and moan, Triumph will be very very closely following and tracking this (inc. this thread)....hi Triumph

Has a dealer technician worked on your bike so far? When they work on this problem, supposedly they contact and provide data to a central Triumph technician who then provide your dealer technician a route to fix the problem.

If a technician has worked on it, what has been done?

And if their work did not resolve the issue, have you called Triumph to inform them that what they, Triumph, suggested to your technician as a fix did not work?

Finally, if these steps have been done, have you heard anything from Triumph about next steps?

Please note, an arrow exhaust map is not a solution to this problem unless that map becomes the official map for this bike.

Just in case, customer service is 678-854-2010, extension 2064.

Thanks
Lion

Change in engine/exhaust tone noted

I have noticed something interesting. Off and on the sound of the bike will change to a deeper throatier tone, usally after restarting when warm (like after a fuel stop). The first time it happened the change of note was significant enough that I actually got off the bike and checked for an exhaust gasket leak. No problem with performance and after the next restart it was gone. This has happened several times since. last time was yesterday after a fuel stop. I actually like the sound of the bike when it does this. It is not louder, but significantly deeper sounding. I wish it would stay that way.

Has anyone else noticed this? Any idea what is happening?

I am all ears

Paul
