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.

Pretty much what I do. Once you figure it out, you can, in my experience, fuel as fast as the pump will allow.

I think it would be worth setting an example in the business. These companies aren't about riders - that's where they came from a long time ago. Today it's about milking as much out of riders as possible.

Especially in Europe where there is at least some attempt at consumer protection you at least have a chance. A consumer protection organization should be able to tell you more.

As said before no you can't, it's only displayed for a few seconds when you turn the key on. You will get used to it. Its not really a big deal.

True, but as I said above mine did display once upon a time. Somehow, it was up for around 1,000 miles, then it disappeared again. I don't know how I got it there, and I don't know how I lost it, but it was there.

I will have to try that. I am down to the last 8 miles. I was afraid of filling the bike after gas splashed into my eye and all over the tank bag harness. If it doesn't work, i don't see how removing it will cause a problem .

I have to point out that your stupid Californian laws means that you have a different filler to the rest of us in the real world. Your plastic insert will mean that my filling method will not work. As I wrote in my original reply on the subject.....
