Sorry for the price question...

My dealer is charging the $500 delivery fee. Know it's all negotiable but wonder if most of you paid it.

My buddy and I rode about 150 miles on Saturday in the Platte City, St. Joe Missouri area and then crossed over in to Kansas just on the other side of St. Joe. We rode mostly gravel untill we got to Kansas and things got a little muddy and gnarly! We found several very washed out roads and then got over to the Missouri river and rode a Levee road for a while. I had a little mis-hap on the levee road and almost went into the Missouri River! Thank God I didn't. When I went down I bent my shifter lever almost completly backwards! We had planed to ride another several hours but after we got the shifter bent back to where it was ridable we headed home.... Whoooo, what a day!
The bike did awesome! I can't wait to go tackle some more!











All Clean!

Wow! Nasty stuff! Some rough country for the Tiger!
Where were you riding? Mendo forest? Cow Mountain? Some pretty steep downhills there! How the Tiger do there with street tires? I wouldn't go near those conditions without knobbies!

Stalling Fix

Just ran across this on another thread:

http://www.tiger800.co.uk/index.php/topic,1083.465.html, post number 474

It appears that Triumph has finally issued an official fix for the stalling problem. The fix involves a software upgrade and nothing else. Based on another poster's comments, the software upgrade may address a measured voltage drop to the stepper motor that occurs under certain conditions. Additionally, Triumph is allegedly in the process of sending letters to owners to notify them of the software fix for this known issue.

All of the previous information was gleaned from posts within tiger800.co.uk, so take this information for what it's worth.

Hopefully, this will be the magic bullet that ends this damn stalling issue!

Pissed tiger 800 stalls when clutch is depressed

I've had the tiger about 2 months now and will be bringing it back for the 4th time for this problem. when the engine is hot and your coming to a stop, or just down shifting, the engine stalls. this is not stalling the bike from a start. I've spoken to triumph on the phone and they act like this is the only one they have heard of with this problem. Since they are close to Atlanta I suggested that they have one of the engineers on the project drive around during rush hour, then they would soon understand the problem. Anyway has anyone had this problem solved?
