Thank you once again for the link.

Well, they should be Triumph numbers as that's the official Triumph web site. Be strange if they weren't.

P.S. Thanks for letting me know that I have a bigger dick than you. I could have guessed that but now you confirmed it!

No! You see you've got it wrong again. By writing "bigger dick" I was just pointing a out that mine is bigger than yours.

Not so. They are just a motorcycle dealer / parts specialist shop owned by Lings Group, who also have the Honda Original Parts site.

You're right. It IS strange.
I just compared some parts that were on my receipt for my 12K service and they're different.
e.g. :-
Headlamp protector kit ; receipt = A983007 , website = PFKL2060662
Oil Filter ; receipt = T1210444, website = PFKL1199034

Don't know what that's all about then.

EDIT :-

That explains it. Site looked official to me. Don't understand why they'd go to all the trouble of allocating their own part # to every bit???

Still it is good for seeing an exploded view of everything. I suppose we could print the diagram and take it into the dealer and show them the part you want.

They (and others) do it to stop you finding the part and part number using their online fiche and then ordering it elsewhere.

I checked one today and the front end seems very stiff for an adventure bike. It is the roadie one that I am interested in.
Bear in mind that per Triumph, the roadie is intended for street use only, no offroad, and is thus sprung accordingly. No surprise it seems a bit stiff for ADV use, as many others have also reported.

I do not have the bike yet, but i am concerned. I am a previous owner of a Triumph Street Triple R and the stock springs on that bike were way to stiff for me.Especially on the rear. The front fork seems stiff on the Triumph Tiger 800, but only a long test ride will answer this question. I also know that stiffness is also a function of proper damping.

That information is not on Racetech website like all my other bikes are.

Sounds like you answered your own questions. Ride it.

I think you'll find the Tigers suspension just fine, I have just come from a YZF1000 and the Tiger is just great after that thing.
So don't be concerned if you're like me, the more you ride it the more you'll love it ;)

And, NO, I don't have this thread memorized. But I was scanning through and saw the post and remembered you asked about it on the last page. Sure enough, same bike/poster.
Absolutely correct. It's a Speed Triple screen WITH the additional flyscreen extender.
I think I write more about it over at the tiger800 forum.
Basically I had had enough of the buffeting and listening to everyones problems with all the other screens out there. So I test rode my dealers Tiger with this fitted and found it was pure bliss. I wasn't taken by the looks at first, but functionality rules over vanity in this area.
It cost a lot, but it is worth it for the smooth ride I now have.

I'll try to disturbing to my pictures a post them up tomorrow.

800xc wouldn't start

after about 6 or 7 weeks of collecting winter dust in my shop, I decided to spark it up, it was very surprised to find it didn't want to start. The engine would turn over, and over, and over again. Nothing.

After about five minutes of playing with it, letting it rest, and trying it again, it sounded like it mustered a few puffs and sputters. I turned it off for a few minutes and came back. This time it sounded like it had started, but promptly died when i backed off the throttle. Next time it caught, I kept on it revving it. Boy that was a lot of work!

Does this sound like the 'stepper motor' issue?

Funny thing is , it had never given me a hint of trouble before I put it away for the winter.

PS It was sunny and 7 degrees Celsius here today. Boy I was so close to taking it for a ride. Hard to believe this warm weather , it should be a winter like -20 Celsius this time of year around here, something is very wrong!
