Thanks. On that, I just ordered a set.

My new Tiger road ABS arrives at the dealer this week, old one was written off (there is a picture a few pages back)
I went ahead and ordered a new blue one.
Someone asked what Triumph farkles to get, I ordered these
Headlight protector
Heated Grips
XC Risers
Sump Guard
Engine Bars
XC Hand Guards

There will be more....

I am going over to see the new arrival soon and I will post pics when I get back

Torque settings

Congratulations....again!! You're probably the first to own a second Tiger 800.

Question: Is there a listing of common torque settings for the Tiger somewhere? Is it only available in the Triumph manual? Looking to change my tires, so need axle torque settings, lower fork pinch bolts and caliper bolts.

I'll just use my Honda torque settings otherwise, as they can't be too different from the Tiger. TIA

From the maintenance manual.

Front spindle/axle = 65Nm
Front pinch = 22Nm
Front Caliper to fork = 28Nm
Rear wheel spindle 110Nm

Negative! I'm on my second as the first one was a lemon but Triumph made it right.

Thanks Swimmer, this is timely as I am replacing tires as well. Taking off the Pirellis and replacing them with Heidenau K76's. Hope they wear better.

Cancel the hand guards. They're crap. If you want to stick to Triumph stuff, look at the Tiger1050 ones or, otherwise, look at Barkbusters. Otherwise, enjoy your new bike.

Thats true they are pretty crap. I made some ali extenders for mine on the original bike. 1050 ones should work better.
just have to turn up some spacers/bar ends

Question to XC owners...
I just placed order for new 800XC today - expected delivery is 2-3 weeks. I mean - in the past I did test drive, today I sat on it and checked all over again, I looked it over each time I've been to dealership but...but I forgot to check something.
I totally forgot to look if radiator have some protection in stock state. Which is important for me (had bad experience with exposed rad in the past).
Does XC radiator have any kind of grill or I have to order one?
I know which one I will order if I need to, but if there is plastic grill - it's fine for me...anyone?

Confirmed. I made the same mistake and bought the R&G guard before I took delivery. Doh!
