Thanks,
Yeah, this sounds new... You can easily siphon from my tank... Except, of course for the locking gas cap.

Picked mine up today after months of waiting. Put on about 70 miles. Did some gravel, my road has been recently graded, was a pain on the KLR in the morning, the stable feeling on the new tiger was a very nice surprise, and with the stock scorpion trails. My first triple, not being able to open it up is a bit frustrating, but will break it in gently. Should be past the first 500 at least this week, and over it all soon. I may well put back the baffle in the Leo Vince. Not that loud, certainly not as loud as D and Ds on my Bonneville, but a droning at certain RPMs that was pretty intolerable. Quite nice at some other RPMs, may be my helmet a bit too, but I think a half a baffle might help. Otherwise nice, stable, planted feeling, engine wants to go but cant yet. Luggage - put 2 33L givis and a 45, trekkers, these are impressive, much nicer than I expected, and go well with the bike.

Now surely there is somewhere I need to be on the other side of the state. I'm going turkey hunting two states over in couple of weeks, maybe need to add a couple of scabbards for shotguns - that might be a good farkle.

I was thinking about the Leo Vince pipe....have the Fuel Midi Can on at the moment without the Baffle & anybody that rides behind me bitches about that "Drone". I does not bother me but there is Drone when cruising, otherwise it sounds great.

Fill'er Up.

You will eventually find the sweet spot so the gas doesn't spit back at you. I find shooting it in to either side of the fill hole bars works best. If you get a really strong pump you may have to reduce the flow a bit.

The demo 800XC I rode had the Leo Vince, Arrow tune and no baffle. When I picked mine up, I immediately added the Leo Vince - but left the baffle in with stock tune.

I far prefer the baffle/stock tune. The tone is awesome, but not annoying - to me or others. And, while there may have been a small performance boost with the Arrow tune on the demo bike, the stock tune is more than adequate for my occasional old man hooliganism...without the widely reported MPG hit of the Arrow tune.

Filling the gas tank is one of the very few minor flaws with the new Tiger. Not much for a entirely new model.

Mine doesn't have that but if it did I'd be figuring out a way to remove it. Are those spring loaded flaps on each side of the center post?

I loaded the new tune 20632 for my Arrow ABS 800 yesterday. Going for a test ride today.

Looks like mine. I have that plastic thing too. However, mine's so new I haven't tried to gas it up yet.

I too would be interested in a way to keep the odo displayed. I too, agree that Triumph messed up on that one. My dealer suggested is was some weird English way of thinking.........

Someone asked me about the Scorpion pipe but damned if I can find the post.

I run the stock map and the MPG does appear to have gone down but mainly because I think I twist the throttle a little more so I can hear it

If you have the two bars in the filler, put the nozzle in the filler and point the nozzle at your footpeg the fuel goes in without any splash or hindrance. It's not a problem with the bike.

Yeah! Whilst I haven't got the time nor inclination to do it but I wonder if the threat of legal action would shift them? VW got fined 80million recently for not allowing Germans to buy their cars in Italy where they were cheaper.
