I used TuneECU to attempt to correct the factory speedometer error, but it did not have an effect. Maybe Triumph changed something in the way the speedometer adjustment is implemented with the new bikes and TuneECU hasn't caught up yet?

Enjoy it.

Headed to my Triumph dealer Monday to look at an 800 ABS. He only has yellow. Is it really ugly? Never seen on "in the flesh". If it fits, I may give it a home.

My dealer told me today that he thinks Triumph has isolated the stalling problem and a new tune is coming. BTW, his demo has started stalling so he's living with it first hand.

Update: My dealer just called to tell me he's got the new tune to fix the stalling issue. I'll try to get it loaded Tuesday.

Do we know details? Like only for stock XC? Do they have a new tune for XC with Arrow pipe? Please let us know, thanks! Ken

Personally, I think the venom yellow looks very sharp and is what I originally ordered. But in the mess Triumph made of delivering the original orders, I accepted a white one instead. The white one showed up unexpectedly at my dealership when the yellow one was about six weeks overdue. Naturally, the yellow one I had ordered came in a week later.

Just rolled over 10,000miles (16,000km). I had the 500 mile service and 6,000 mile services completed at Triumph Detroit and she idles great. The bike even survived TransLab! RR soon...

ATTENTION!!! Check your shifter bolt!!!

So yesterday I crashed my bike (I'm fine and I will post pics and a ride report tomorrow) and bent my shifter. Today I took the shifter off to bend it back to keep as a back up. When I went to take it off I noticed that the shifter was super wiggly. Then when I went to take it off the bolt was soooooo lose that I took it off with my fingers. I suggest everyone check theirs. I will defenately be using some licktite when I re-install.
Also, I'm not sure that a shifter with a "break away" style shifter would have prevented it from digging in and bending but I can assure you that I will replace it with one. I know touratech has one.

Got out for a nice ride today, somewhere between 300 and 400 miles. The Tiger only stalled once! It's got 1995 miles on it and it's almost completely reliable!







All sarcasm aside (tho I wish this frackin bike would just run properly) my bike turned in a consistent 55 mpg over the last 3 tanks. Not bad for a semi-reliable bike.

I found out today that the stock Bridgestone Battlewings are completely terrifying on wet roads. Completely! I had 3 hydroplaning events today in moderate to heavy rain. The replacement shopping ensues...
