That's very kind of you.
But here's an additional problem; there are two of us that bought seats from Seat Concepts together, on the same order, sent to us in the UK and we both have the same problem with them, too firm. My mate, who actually put in the order is Don Theaker. It would be best to metion that if you do try something.
Thanks BD.

Hello and thank you for everything you share with you, following you with great interest.

Question:
I'm looking for fork leg that fits original steering crowns and have between 270 and 300 mm suspension travel. Do you have any ideas.
Öhlinsfork in image how long suspension travel has it

2: Triple klamps crowns .... Have you found any that fit the the steering column.

3: The bearing that consists of "ball bearing"? and not roller bearings have you changed it.


With the original fork (harder Öhlins springs and thicker oil) so I feel the bike too low in front when it starts to go really fast on trails and tracks .... am I wrong here?

Thanks for any help here!

Okay .... It is run bike times, nice!

Without answers to the questions above, I took matters into my own hands ....

48 mm fork, 300 mm wheel travel, 5.9 springs, 100 mm air pocket, 0.5 oil, triple clamps crowns, two fork angles, 320mm single disc brake, new press bushings for real roller bearings in the steering head.

Wilbers, +25 mm, 59-59-120-185, spring high and low speeds settings, 18 "rear wheel from a 950 Adv, a blue 2:50 rim track installed next weekend.

Higher seat, rebuilt air filter (new prefilter) shorter rear suspension linkage = 40 mm higher.





Tested the bike with the new fork and original dampers and 17 "rear ....
Got a shock .... extremely unstable and had serious doubts on Tiger.

Now with 18 "and Wilbers rear silencer so it said" click "Yes .... What an awesome bike.
Having driven both the Super enduro, Adventure 950/990, my own Africa Queen (for sale) and they all have their good, the tiger is ready with a good weight and a fantastic balance
I love this tiger!

Now we will scare up the engine with a PC and a custom slipon ... Anyone?

Africa Queen (Varadero XL 1000) som jag byggde för 1½ år sedan

"Baja Tiger 800 Build"

In reality, nothing more than one long ad for his sponsors and constant promises to detail the build. What a waste of a thread

Agreed. I was going to post a similar thing. :) I'm sure Baja Dad is of on some super secret testing program, working directly with triumph designing the latest and greatest. Ha!
I've called out BD on things before. He's kind of a tool.

Maybe the wrong thread to post this here, but please inquire here are some pictures of the attachment of the new fork.

When I mounted the original fork, I was very surprised by Triumph solution to styrhuvuds bearings .... Simple ball bearings, type pedal bike!?

However as we turned a couple lagerbans spacers / rings to KTM / Husaberg pilot bearing fit in the Tiger head tube.

We then pressed in the down-cooled bearing races into the heated spacers / rings and the same prosedur was then repeated in the steering head (pictures).

Since it was only fitting .... Remember! love to your own measurement between the top and bottom layers, self so could we ourselves made ​​spacers / rings 1 mm higher, so that the distance between the two bearings was 2 mm more, we did bearings stopper 1.5 mm of spacers / rings, but could have had them 2 , 5 mm. We solved our lack of 2 mm with a tray underneath the bearing against the lower crown.

















Please enjoy ... Signed

He told you all the parts. Guess without crayons you're lost.

Right, because the thread title really should be "Baja Tiger 800 XC Parts List"

They're not simple ball bearings. They're Angular Contact ball bearings which is a big difference. I have found, over the 30000 miles that I've done on my Tiger, that they stay in adjustment longer and last longer overall than taper roller bearings.

Whatever.

BD made repeated promises to "get back later with all the details" and never really makes it back with the details.

Folks are rightly calling him out for that. I gave up waiting.

With or without Crayons, folks either should not make promises they can't keep, or stand by them and provide the goods.

At least apologize and let folks know it just isn't ever going to happen.

I wouldn't call him a tool. It was nice of him to share what he has with us, and it is an inspiring thread. Maybe BD can be more realistic in the future about whether he can afford the time, and avoid having people patiently waiting for the promised followup that may never come.
