Interesting. What does the fuel pressure regulator do in the earlier motors then ?

Quoted verbatim from the Triumph manual:

"In the returnless system, the fuel pressure regulator is relocated inside the fuel tank, between the fuel pump and the fuel pump plate. This ensures that the fuel in the supply hose and fuel rail is always at a constant 3 bar pressure, and therefore negates the need for a return hose."

lol- so they put in a fancy 20+ dollar part that increases repair cost, has higher chance of failure for???? So they can avoid installing a 10 dollar return tube and ports with near zero chance of failing?

Somethings just make you go hmmmmm???

No, you've got it backwards.

Both models have a fuel pressure regulator, but the later one is different, requiring fewer parts in the fuel system. The earlier design that you seem to prefer has more parts, and is prone to breakage, i.e. the fuel fittings.

The later '05's and '06's have but one fuel line, no return line, and do not have the prone-to-breaking fuel fittings. If anyone has had a fuel pressure regulator (of any year Tiger) fail on them, I've not heard of it.

ahhhhh. good to hear. Didnt think the pressure regulator was needed, thus not there, on a system with a return.

This was an interesting day. As always, you can't see the degree of incline on these pictures in the mountains, but it was a fairly steep road. I started down it and at this point decide to turn around as the sand was so deep it was going over the rim of the wheel.

Elevation in this picture was about 10,000' and it took me about 1/2 hour to turn it around and get outta there. The road was narrow enough too that I barely had room to turn it around. I keep edging forward, kick it in neutral back it up about 6-8", turn the wheel stick it in gear, edge forward, rinse and repeat! wheewee. Thought this old fart my pass out right there! At one point the bike was standing straight up in the sand with no assistance from the kickstand.

OK, couple more. Getting to the top of Pikes Peak really SUCKS. The road are NO fun at all, and the scenery is BORING!

Atokad, nice pics. Man, that view really IS crap, isn't it? I sure hope I never have to ride in Colorado. Blech.

Yeah, the views really suck, and there is no one to ride with around here. 2 Tigers in this pic, can you spot the second one?
