Front Sprocket for 800XC

Is the stock front sprocket on the 2011 Triumph Tiger 800xc a 16T:525 or 520? I'm looking to drop a tooth in the front but I can't find the thread that mentions it or the replacement part number from Renthal. Renthal lists both a 520 and 525. Will I be alright just swapping the front sprocket and nothing else?

As always stay dirty!

Thanks for the intel

I'm leaning toward the bark busters or the Acerbis with the universal adapters. Those should help if my bike gets another sudden urge to tip over.

I went with Highway Dirtbikes hand guards. Yes, they are costlier than the others mentioned, but they are much thicker = BOMB proof, and the Tiger is no light weight dirt bike.


I really like the functionality of the integrated HDB mirrors, which retract behind the guards for bashing through the woods.

I used a spray bottle cover that was laying around the garage. The top for some K&N filter oil fits perfectly. Easy on/off and protects well.

Thanks!!! I ended up going with advtenn suggestion. Now I am just tying to find a good cover for my GIVI. I think I am going to fabricate a "mud flap" about 5 inches straight out from my rack...

Are those SW Motech Crash Bars? You ever have a problem with scratching up the bike since you had them on?

Yes, they are the SW-Motech Crash Bars

The worst damage I have ever had, is a slightly scratched indicator.
The real benefit of these bars is that they cover the radiator shrouds. Those shrouds act as shovels and scoop up material which then twists the top radiator mounts that are welded on the frame. As you can guess theses tabs wont like being bent back into position (if they havent already broken) to many times and if they break its a real problem

Nice pics AllOrds.

The rotopax mounts must be pretty stout. I would think they would snap being the first thing to touch in a fall like that.

Yes, that happened.. The threaded rod that connects to the T handle bent which wasn't a deal breaker, but the corrugations finally fatigued the rod and it snapped. Fixed with a new piece of threaded rod.




Had to break out the straps, and one cell lived on the rear seat for a while

I knew those BMWs were no good.

Hope he's doing OK.
