That and use the device that is designed for turning off the bike: the key. The kill switch is for emergencies and the side stand for dummies.

Thoughts?
Yes, the stepper idle motor resets. If there's dirt in the mechanism it can't reset to the correct position so you get idle problems. BUT, if you turn it on and off a few times, it seems to knock the dirt off and gets to where it should get to. Problem solved.

that generally works for me, unless I'm on a trip and use a tank bag that gets in the way of the key

I can't believe they didn't put the tubeless rear on the 2013 800 XC. That is two major complaints with the 800 that Triumph addressed on the Explorer but they decided not to correct on the 800. Nonintegrated pillion pegs and a tubeless rear.

I am sure most 800XC owners would be fine with the tubed front with a tubeless rear. Yes you can make it so yourself but why not bring the 2013 rim from the Explorer XC over to the new 800's?

Probably due to cost. Tubeless spoke wheels are not cheap, even compared to the Excel wheels that are already on the 800XC.

Jesus, how many times do we have to go over the same shit

Some of us don't see tubed wheels as an issue and nor do some of us think the pillion pegs as that big an issue as some think.

It looks like Sargent has delayed the tentative date for their Tiger 800 seat until spring 2013.

Just bought the Explorer bars for My XC, the sweep is perfect, but the bars are not a direct swap. the bars are a little wider and the position holes for the controls are not in the same place as the XC. you either have to drill differant holes for the electrical controls or grind off the locating tabs. also the left hand side you have a gap of about 1/4 inch differance, between the handguard and the tapered spacer. So you either have to drill out the handguard spacer or drill more holes for the hand grip to screw to.

Have plenty of experience with them - my Photoshopped R1100GS was in their catalog. My feelings are that that they are struggling financially but hopefully they will get there

They state they've had a lot of interest for the tiger. I take that to mean preregistrations for the spring release. i just signed up, eagerly waiting what they will provide.

I emialed Spencer in FL, he did a phenomenal job on my Bonnie seat for relatively cheap, As of my email a few weeks ago he had not even seen a 800. I think he was planning on changing that in October, see if he could make an improvement. I'd be happy to let him have a go at my seat this winter.

They definitely need to get a direction of some sort. When I was into the Daytona 675 scene, we had gotten something like 13 deposits together to do a Sargent deal, but, Sargent backed out. There's a market for new applications. Doing nothing, despite interest, is a sure way of going under. Either lead or get out of the way.
