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!
Might I suggest one of these...

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?

Hello everyone, I've seen "2nd generation" talk here and there. Does anyone have an idea when their will be a 2nd generation? Is it possible that the next model year will be an improved version?

Stalling Fix

Quote:
I just finished talking to my dealer about what was posted about the "fix" with the newest map. He called Triumph U.K. and was told this latest map is not the so called fix as has been told to other owners. He said that each dealer has access to a certain area on Triumphs dealer site where the stalling fix will be notated as soon as one is found. At least according to him one has not been found yet. I hope he is wrong and the fix is ready. My dealer did tell me to come on down an install the latest map. Cheers
From the same source the UK Tiger forum...like I said we have not heard of any permanent fix but we are expecting a call tomorrow maybe with some news.

hey you can't just leave it at that we need a full report. How much, where from, How many hours can you stand and where can we get one just like it. Is it a rebuild or new seat? Did you try the Triumph gel seat before and is this improvement you know all the usual information.

We were down in Clear Creek, too bad that place closed down. We stayed on all the 'legal' dirt roads.

The tires actually did okay on the off-road terrain. We jam on the paved roads, so we're looking for a slightly more aggressive tire for the dirt, with out losing traction on the pavement.

+1

Looks like this seat might be taller and set you back more as well. Is that the case?
