If you mean you think the dealer cleaned the stepper during regular service you're wrong. Unless you tell them to they didn't. Just clean it yourself and spray it with a dry lube and you're good.

Two of us were lucky enough to be allowed by Triumph Australia to take two Tigers up to the Flinders Ranges Classic a couple of weeks ago. I fell in love with the one I was using and to my surprise Danny put his on the market and it took me no time to snap it up. I've met Danny and watched the progress of the bike on this thread, so it was an easy decision to make.

If you're interested, here's the ride report from the Flinders trip...

Not reg. service - I had it in because of the stepper motor and walked them through what was recommended in this forum and they also did their research and explained exactly what they had done.

Keen eyed inmates may notice the "enhancements" made to the riveted SW Motech skidplate.

....seems like a waste of a thread...like 'what weight oil should I use'.
Waste of a thread, huh? Well, guess maybe for you...but any info I get on these questions helps me out...

Thanks for chiming in...

Yea it's a tough crowd around here. Some of those other guys are pretty brutal. Have a nice ride and enjoy your time with the wife. , brown eye, most any motorcycle oil will work in any motorcycle engine regardless of weight. Just make sure it's ok for wet clutches.

Don't get hung up...we have a whole tiger thread in beasts for this stuff. Most of them aren't reading the west thread since they're all over the world. That's what I meant, just sayin'.

Yep. I used Shell Advance Ultra for my last change. More likely to still be in good condition for the full 6K miles.
