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?
Yes this topic has been discussed for months now. Do a search and you will find lots of info. Or just go back a couple pages if you want an abbreviated version.

2nd generation? It just came out. Probably won't see a gen 2 version for a few years. The Tiger 1050 came out for the 2007 model year and it's still gen 1.

I am trying to build something similar. I can tell that seat will put you forward a bit because of the lip at the back. I am trying to build a flatter seat that can mate with the passenger section when the front is in the high position so I can slide back and forth on the highway. I figure I can put the seat in the low position when riding off road to make it easier to put a foot down.
I'd like to know where to get one of those though in case my home made effort doesn't work.

I agree.
They might make some small changes year by year but if you're expecting bolt on subframes and the like you've got to be looking at 2014/5 IMO at which time it'll probably be bored out to 850cc to compete with the new Husqvarna 900ADV due in a year or so.

Some of these will do you.


Heidenau K60 Scouts. They haven't slowed me one bit on the roads (psi=30F/36R) they steer nice and neutral and off road (psi=20F/25R) they're pretty good for a 50/50 tyre. AND, the ADVgrrls got over 8500 miles on a set during their Alaska trip.

I just received the seat yesterday and haven't had a chance to ride yet because I'm in the middle of my fog light installation and Triumph decided to ship 2 left hand brackets instead of a LH & RH bracket.

My seat was modified by Baldwin Motorbike Saddles out of Kansas, Loren does great work. He modified my Versys seat and I could ride that bike all day long with little to no butt pain.

I did not try the Triumph gel seat.

Loren will do about whatever you want. I wanted to try more of the saddle shape figuring the more contact with the butt the better to distribute load. I went with the memory foam with a gel insert and then just had him recover the pillion to match the rider seat. They are expensive so I'm sure they are not for everyone, $450!!! Time will tell as far as comfort but I expect it to be as good as or better than my Versys seat.

Thanks... I've been reading up on those, they seem to be a great tire.

I have some on my wee-strom. Does your front tire whine like crazy above 55mph? The newer ones have a bit different tread design....and on the rear it's less aggressive, but the front is very similar.

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.
