Had mine done just last weekend at the 12K service. Along with a new centerstand and a waterpump hose.

Which hose and why the replacement - one of mine leaks a tiny little bit no matter how tight the clamp is.

Yes, just this past Saturday. I dropped my bike off for a few hours. I think it took them about an hour to do. Slightly higher shift effort but better engagement. Is seems like I felt my original shifter getting a bit sloppy. Anyway, I think its an improvement.

For those that don't know this was mainly for earlier bikes I believe.

This might have been the first time I've ever had to take any of my motorcycles anywhere to have work done.

SB 439 for VIN's 466334 thru 501587.

This is for a new shifter return spring. Triumph is not sending out letters & dealers act like they don't want to mess with this unless you have a problem. If you call them & let them know that you know, then they'll do the recall.

ABS model? If so maybe the sensor needs to be wiped off.

Do you have ABS? If you do have ABS, then make sure the rings are clean. If you don't have ABS, then it's a sensor inside the transmission.

To be honest, I don't know which hose or why it was replaced. My bike was in to fix some stepper motor issues (poor idle/no idle), and to get the 12K service done. Since they had the bike a few days, they did all the outstanding recall issues-- centerstand, gear spring, and waterpump hose. Senior tech said the new hose looked exactly the same as the old hose. I had no issues with my waterpump (that I'm aware of), or with the gearshift. Although I did notice that the new spring seems to be a bit stiffer when changing gears initially. I think it is smoothing out a bit with use.

...ok...just found this link. Looks like it is for the water pump outlet hose. http://www.triumphtalk.com/showthrea...ger-800-XC-ABS

Decided to get out of the house on a whim last Sunday. Ended up putting around central Florida front and back roads to the tune of about 300+ miles - even swung by Epcot for a pretzel and a beer from Germany (I have a season pass). Couldn't dream of doing that on my DRZ or CRF! Bike performed flawlessly - even through some nasty weather. Me on the other hand, needs some work.

I ride every day, but we're only talking 5 mile commutes. After an hour or two on the Tiger, my right wrist would get pretty sore. Guess I need to condition it and maybe look into a throttle lock? Butt would get pretty sore, but I was able to move it around and keep it awake. May look into some different wind screen options. Stock wasn't too bad, but if I stuck my head down a little lower, it was like heaven down there (I'm not that tall at 5'8")! I definitely need a lighter jacket... It was probably in the mid 90's with high humidity, and I was pretty miserable in my Alpinestars black leather jacket. Was wearing full gauntlet roadrace gloves too, which didn't help with the heat...

Very happy with my purchase so far! Now I need someone to buy my DRZ so I can afford some farkles :-D

Not yet, though the parts are in. My dealer has done one other though and says it's not a quick job -- whole clutch basket needs to come out, etc.

Now that you mention farkles, I remember a thread awhile ago where you picked up some Givi pannier racks. Been shopping around for some but can't find any around the ballpark figure that you paid. Do you remember where you got yours?

Thanks....T

The triumph documentation with spring kit allows 1.5 hours for this job per my dealer. He showed me the parts that had to be replaced.

Yes.. by far the cheapest I found was from http://www.cli-maxridinggear.com/ser...ardware/Detail , BUT it looks like they *just* raised prices :( If you add it to your cart (PLR6401), it's now $189 + $15 shipping. Still a decent deal from what I remember, but they did have them at like $130 shipped - which I'm not sure how they did since that is by far a butt load cheaper than anyone else!

I will say that while I received a bum part (manufacturing defect) in the kit, Cli-MAX has been working with Givi to rectify the situation - and I feel confident they'll follow through. Will update when it happens.

ABS. Our theory is, I had such a desparity between the front and rear wheel speeds that it faulted the computer. Was having a bit too much fun yesterday. Thanks for your help guys. The fault hasn't come back, and i think it was fun induced.
