I have a set on my 01 GS, so far so good.

New Info About the Stalling

Owner's should contact their Triumph dealer in reference to Service Bulletin 431 and make an appointment to have the new download installed ASAP.


Straight from Triumph which was released today to the Global dealer Network.


We know nothing else but thought it would be useful to pass this info along.

Good luck to all of your who have been experiencing what we did on our trip. Hope this new download works!

My new '11 XC in the mountains above Alamogordo, NM on Sunday. I rode some pretty gnarly roads through the mountains in the background on Saturday in the rain and mud. Didn't feel like stopping in the rain to take pics on that particular ride. Bike has done great so far.

Thanks for posting. Good to know (since neither my dealer nor the Triumph Customer Relations Manager that I've been bitching to have anything to say about this) . I'll make some calls tomorrow.

Maybe because it was release on the Global wire today?

Bonneville Salt Flats

I took this about a month ago:



I guess I am the current holder of the 2011 Triumph Tiger 800XC land speed record at Bonneville.

(Of course, the speed depicted here is zero).

I don't notice anything with these but I do wear ear plugs all the time. I do remember the ordinary K60s I had on the Scram whined loudly so maybe they've changed something in the construction in the Scouts.

The K60 (http://www.reifenwerk-heidenau.de/mo...fil=38&pic=104) are a different tyre to the K60 Scout (http://www.reifenwerk-heidenau.de/mo...fil=162&pic=99). Especially the 150 rear which has that solid central band which, I'm hoping, will slow down the "squaring off" procedure.

Don't worry about it. BMW riders are very insecure because they have to defend why they spent loads of money on a poorly designed, badly engineered piece of shit.
Over time our Tigers will prove to be the better overall bike and will undoubtedly be more reliable. You see, they go on about the service costs being less for the BM but they never include the costs of all the bits that have broken and need to be replaced.

Hi guys.

Just a quick question re oil consumption. I'm moments away from hitting 4000 miles, and noticed yesterday my oil mark is a little below min. So, I'm about to scramble to get some more.

Now, I doubt its much of a top up, probably 500ml or less, but should I be concerned? There are no leaks, and I ran it in religiously according to the manual. I do however love to occasionally get the needle near the red bits now, so it sees some action.

Doesn't sound enough to worry about to me. My Landrover didn't stop burning a little oil untill it hit 100,000 miles. I now think it is finally run in

Pissing matches like that are a total waste of time. Both bikes are fine bikes - buy the one you like and ride the shit out of it. The best bike in the world ? The one you're riding....

Yep... it's about the ride not the bike.
